Hat 179: Firefly’s Jayne Cobb

A large hat made to look like Jayne's (from Firefly), and a weeny one to match

"The hero of Canton, the man they call..." What's his name again?

I know I probably sound like a broken record, but look I made a Jayne hat – in miniature! This one is my Jayne hat, the first one will soon be on its way to PolyWolf. (Click for awesome blog.)

Here’s the project page, and here’s the original pattern. 🙂

Hats 119-121: Lurrrrve

Three stripey hats, two with bobbles

The lighting is not great due to I could not be bothered

Voila! Will try to knit two hats tomorrow to be up to date, but let’s be honest, it might not happen due to Fran and Dave (eeeeeeeee!!!!!!) coming to stay! They’ve come all the way from Sheffield and I’ve not seen them in a squillion years! It’s all very exciting, and then I have to make a big meal for everyone. I cannot decide between risotto and soup, though Dan has expressed a preference for soup. I will think about it tomorrow. Now, to have a go with the sock yarn blanket. 🙂

This post was hardly about hats at all, was it? Can you tell I’m excited?

PS: That sock listing has over 3,000 views now!

Hats 85 and 86: Trying out the new scraps

One orange blendy with bobble, one greeny-yellowy-bluey.

Sorry, rubbish photo again. I bought a cooker, that's my excuse.

I am exhausted. Today I bought a cooker. Life is hard.

I did, however, manage to knit a couple of hats, so I’m all up to date. A proper photo was too much effort, mind. I used the new yarns from pmcblonde, and they are so pretty! 🙂 The blue-yellow-green one doesn’t make good bobbles though; it just doesn’t squish properly.

I have made a few things for other people lately, so now it’s time to knit for me. My new year’s resolution is to knit something for myself every other project unless deadlines interfere, so it’s time for some Noro socks.

Hat 78: Yesterday

Yellow and orange hat

The awesome blanket is slightly bigger, but that's okay 'cos it took longer

This is yesterday’s hat – the first of the new year, 2010. Two-thousand and ten sounds cool, but twenty-ten sounds more futuristic. I like the latter more.

This is made from random yellow DK acrylic stuff and Debbie Bliss “Cathay”, and I’m running seriously low on scraps. I predict that in a couple of days I’ll be down to that fugly pink and the fascinating purpley twisty stuff. Uh-oh.

On the bright side, I finished Sir Kirsdy’s scarf:

Pink 1x1 ribbed scarf with variegated yarn and my label on

Oooooo, it's so pretty, you knows it is

And later on, I’m going to see Sven to sew the knitted patch onto his amusing hat. Photos to follow.

Much progress! A satisfying start to the year.

74: Minus bobble

Green, blue and yellow striped hat


This one told me that it didn’t want a bobble, so I left it off. I am way behind on the hats.


Hat 57: For finding the smoothie at night

Very bright blue and yellow striped bobble hat

My eyyyyyes!

This hat is even brighter in real life, it’s just freaky. I unraveled a half-finished square just before I moved, and these are the colours it used to be. Terrifying, no? To think that would’ve gone into my blanket!

PS: Three left to do today…

Hat 19: Nearly Bonfire Night

Orange and yellow in the dark

Hat 19, through the gloom

It’s getting really dark, really early! It’s starting to feel more and more like Bonfire Night, so I thought some of that Debbie Bliss Cathay and some ordinary yellow DK stuff might look a bit fiery. Then the photo just came out dark, which is very convenient. 🙂

It didn’t want a bobble. I can’t explain how I know this…
