I know!  Looks like it'd knit up pretty easily in kitchen cotton.  Too cute, and I wish I'd thought of it first!  Smiley

You guys will appreciate the "jayne" bowl that's in the washer, felting, right now. Orange base, then wide yellow stripe, topped w/ red (b/c I only had a little red left). Hope it's as cute in reality as it is in my imagination!

Xie xie for posting this link.  OMG - too cool.

Does anyone have a pattern for the mini-hat pins?  If I thought about it hard enough, maybe I could do the math my own self ("let's see, nuthin into nuthincarry the nuthin").   

I wish I had seen those sooner.  I have an event this Saturday (Firefly Mini-Marathon in WA) and those would'a been a hoot to sell.

ETA: maybe something like this with ears? pattern link although, is this pattern for machine knitting?  back to the googling...

ETA2: hmm... trying to do the math
maybe #1 needles, 20st (5st wide ear flaps?) and 14+rows or so until start decrease? or 28st w/6st earflaps?
I smell a trip TMYS.  If I figure this out... I'll let you know!

RE: Jayne hat pins (mini-hats)

Okay - I'm inspired.  I didn't have enough time to figure this out definitively last night, but I will in the next couple of days and I"ll be sure to post the pattern here.

Essentially, I tried #1's, #2 & what I think are stitch-holders using baby wool (Dalegarn baby ull).  They're 4in. dpn approximately size 3.5(?).  They worked great for this tiny project except the gauge was too large.  My inherited #1's are bent, so that wasn't a lot of fun but they are probably a good size for this. #2's worked well but my last attempt last night was 24st and that ended up too wide - imo.  So I'm going to try again with 20st. 6 rows with orange looked good, maybe 5-6 rows yellow before decreasing.  The hardest part was starting the first row because it seemed to want to twist a lot.  So I just did straight stocking stitch and didn't attempt ribbing on the first row or two.

I have an idea for how I might make the beginning work a little better.  When I test it, I'll post it.  I knew it was wishful thinking I could crank out a couple dozen by Saturday (my FF event) but I still am really interested in doing this for fun gifts and things.  If wishes were horses...  Wink

Nice pattern for your first time.  I love the Jayne Cobb character in this series and I also liked him in that FBI Profiling show, the Inside, that was only cancelled after a season.  Bring him back on an awesome show that doesn't get cancelled!

just to be totally random...

my family got together with a couple of other families last weekend.  I walked inside the house where the son was cooking some pasta, and at the same time was watching an old movie, from 1980.  he goes.. 'andrea, do you know who that is?' and i'm watching, and watching it trying to figure it out...  then he goes 'there's even a song about him..'  finally when i couldn't figure it out.. 'our love for him now, aint hard to explain, the hero of canton, the man they call..' and i just burst out with JAYNE!!! OMG!!!

i was so excited.. i can't wait until serenity!

okay I thought I'd share some posts in response to a 'mini-jayne hat pin' thread on the old Fox board (aka FF OB).  I hope this isn't too much of a highjack but I thought these were hi-larious as it combined FF and knitting.

...I'd say #1 or #2 needles, knit in round w/20st. (24 was too wide.) Maybe 6 rows orange, 5-6 yellow before decrease... 4-5st. wide ear flaps...

Just_Mom: "I was a knitter once.... Okay, so I wore a knit hat.... Okay, so I got stuck with a needle...."

Radegund: "Were there terrifying space knitters?"

Just_Mom: "Knitting for the crew now?"
"Only in your lonely, pathetic afghan!"

Radegund: "Oh my god, who's knitting this thing? Oh, right, that would be me."

Guys, I've upped it one more notch.

With my spare leftover Lopi, I knit a friend a Jayne hat iPod cozy. Just mini-fied the hat, and elongated it a bit, so that it would hit an iPod. Apparantly, he's already gotten comments. "OMG is that the Jayne hat from Firefly? ON YOUR iPOD?"

Rock. Totally rock. All of my spare Lopi is going towards those.  Cheesy
