Hello! I've been hanging around Craftster for a long time, but this is my first time posting here.

I learned to knit last summer and became obsessed with the television show Firefly about a month later. I saw the Knit Your Own Rock Star pattern in Stitch N Bitch Nation and immediately wanted to knit a doll version of one of the Big Damn Heroes. Being the procrastinator that I am, I only got around to making that doll last month. The project was halted for a bit because I didn't have any size 6 dpns. I'm finally finished, and here is Jayne Cobb!

Isn't that little hat cunnin'?
I'll let you all in on a secret. That hat covers his bald head!

When I tried to give him some duplicate stitch hair, I totally failed on the duplicate stitch part. Instead, he just keeps that silly hat on all the time. Even without hair, he's ready for some thrillin' heroics. ....Or maybe just some backyard adventures.

I might be going to a Serenity screening in late August and, if I do, Jayne is going to be there with me.

He's really cute!
May I suggest embroidered French knot hair? That's pretty easy, and it sort of looks like little short curls.
His hat is super cunning.

Great job! I enjoy seeing projects that have other interests incorporated into them.  Smiley

Thanks for the suggestion, but I think I'm going to leave him bald for now. Jayne's hair is pretty short and not curly anyway.

Yeah, I'm kind of wondering if I could use those patterns to make a knitted Mal and Inara now...

I'm sure you could. I was planning on doing a whole SereniFly crew, but then realized it would be one of those projects I'd abandon and never come back to.

Good luck on your Inara and Mal!  Smiley
