For sure!

Even though it wasn't part of the original package in Firefly, I also used some of the red wool to wrap ribbon-style around the box, and tied it in a shabby-looking bow at the top. I was lucky, I told Tom(one of the recipients), a baker, that I needed to borrow two of his white cake boxes because I was in a rush to fins two boxes for gifts(true, but not giving anything away). Was he ever surprised for what I used them for!  Cheesy

And on a happy happy note, today I found an uber-amazing LYS here in Ottawa that, among tons of other things, has Lopi wool! SWEET! Now I don't have to make the hour-long road trip to Carleton Place to the wool shop any more! YAY! *dance* I can buy the wool anytime to make the other two hats. Cheesy

And the people there are so friendly and they have tons of animal fibres and and... *runs off to tell her knitting friends*

For me, not long, and I'm not a super-speedy knitter. I'd say a total of 4 hours. It's thick wool, and is knit on rather large needles, so it knits up pretty quick.

SWEET! It looks fantastic, Emisanboo!

On a side note, I gave the two Jayne hats I made to their gift recipients. THEY LOVED THEM. I put them in plain white boxes, with straw covering them, with the Ma Cobb letter on top. They adored the authenticity of it, and wore the hats proudly all night, even though we were at a formal Christmas party(i.e. suits!). It was fantastic. When I get a chance to drive the hour to my wool supplier, I'm making two more, one for me and one for my BF. Much fun!

Oh, I'm sure one could think of some more crafts from Firefly! What about attempting to knit one of Simon's sexy sweaters? Mmmmm. Kaylee's paper umbrella is a nice idea, too. *thinks*

I need to get my DVDs back from the friend I leant them to, man!  Cheesy

Thanks for the comments, kids!

I made the hat out of Lopi Iclandic wool - rough, thick, virgin wool. I thought the hat would be really itchy, but it's actually quite comfortable!

And crumpet - YES make more Jayne hats!  Cheesy It is SOOOO easy to make.
76  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Jayne Cobb Hat! (with pattern) on: December 06, 2004 03:38:13 PM
Being a devout Browncoat(that's a fan of the recently-cancelled sci-fi series Firefly), I saw this page and couldn't resist. So, I found myself some nice rough wool, and knit some Jayne Cobb hats for my fellow Browncoats for Christmas! Here's me modeling one that I made for myself. The hat was my first circular project and it was super easy!

(the link above also has a screenshot of the actual hat and some hats knitted by the pattern creator.)

The pattern can be found at this link:

Man, what you guys have so far is great!

I have to admit, I'm a little nervous of starting this one, but once Christmas is over(since my gifts are knitted), I may give it a shot, but I'm thinking of replacing the green with a slate blue.
78  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Joining help? on: November 28, 2004 10:25:18 AM
Pardon me, because this seems like such a silly question - I've looked in my books and all over the internet, and can't find an answer to this seemingly basic question.

See, I'm about to start knitting a Jayne Cobb hat, which requires knitting in the round. I've never knitted in the round before, but I'm told by everyone I talk to how easy it is. The thing is, nearly every knit-in-the-round project requires you to join your ends after casting on - HOW do you do so?

Again, I know this question seems silly, and I hope I'm posting it in the right section - but I would love an answer ASAP.

Thanks for your time!

Wow, Debbie, I gotta say, you went all-out on this one!

There are so many things I desire to knit in this book... the newsboy cap, the yoga bag, the alligator mittens and monster slippers... MAN! This book is going to rock.

Oh, and Deb, since you check these boards - any Canadian bookstores on your tour lineup?  Cheesy

Yeah, I admit I've gotten what one might call the "granny stereotype" ("knitting? I would never have thought ANYONE knitted anymore!"), and I was a little nervous to bring my knitting to college to knit on breaks because of the reaction I might recieve.

Well, my classmates, namely the female ones, thought it was awesome that someone my age had taken up knitting. A few mentioned that their mothers/grandmothers had tried to teach them, but they thought it was silly and pointless to make ugly scarves and sack sweaters. I showed them a bunch of things I've knitted, most of them from Stitch and Bitch - the kerchief, wristwarmers, punk rock backpack(in progress.... I showed them the pic in the book), my iPod and cell phone cozies... now, a few have BOUGHT the book, taught themselves to knit, and are brandishing knitting needles with me on our breaks.
