Eeeek!
So excited to give this to him. He loves Firefly, and every year for Christmas I make him a hat, so...
Taaadaaaa!
(I'm modeling the hat, in housecoat and on the phone with my mum, but I will post a pic of him in it come gift-swapping!)
Oh, so proud!
I couldn't find a pattern on the net that I was particularily fond of, so I made my own (Aaron also has a really big head for such a skinny little guy). I used Paton's Classic wool in Old Gold, Paprika, and Bright Red (which I should would be too bright, but I'm acutally really happy with it!)
Yay!
(For those of you not familiar with the hat, this is what it's modelled after: http://www.bookish.dk/images/jaynehat1.jpg)
Next time I will make the ochre section bigger, the paprika smaller, and the pompom have more red in it.
it only took me a few hours - maybe 6? One day, anyways, so I may do up another of the same style in different colours for my little brother for Christmas!

Wow-

Great job, and I love the colors.  It looks so cute on you, it's a shame you're giving it away.

Thanks!
I'm am sad that I'm giving it away Sad
But I know he'll love it!
I've also done up the letter from Jayne's mum to put in the box, and I'm shredding craft paper for the packing junk that the hat has around it in the show!

Sits pretty cunnin'!  Cheesy  It's no wonder he liked it!

Jayne hats are great. They're quick knits, but they're fun to make.
