Jayne Cobb hat

Posts will be scarce . Busy knitting this hat:

Firefly fans will understand.

It was a gift request from my son. When Jayne pulled that hat out of the box sent by his mother and uttered the words, "A man walks down the street in a hat like that, you know he's not afraid of anything," my son said, "Mom, I can you make me that hat?"

I took the picture to the yarn shop to match colors. The girl behind the counter said that lots of people make that hat, known in knitting circles as the Jayne Cobb Hat. Visit the Smariek Knits blog for patterns and links to patterns and more pics.

And I still have to knit a scarf and another non-Jayne Cobb hat by Christmas. What am I still doing on the computer??

That picture made me laugh :) I don't remember that episode though! I'm going to have to sit down and watch everyone carefully now! shame!

Hi Kim!

I don't remember the exact episode either, or I'd point you in the right direction. My son has the full set on DVD. It's a great show; I wish they hadn't cancelled it.

I saw two guys wearing matching hats just like that yesterday!

ICQB said...

Ha! That's funny - and now you know the rest of the story...

Thanks for stopping by Adrienne!

That is one mean hat ;-)

Hi Jocco!

Isn't it, though? It actually doesn't look half bad now that I'm done knitting it.

Can't wait for my son to open this present on Christmas morning.

Happy Holidays!
