"A man walks down the street in that hat, people know he's not afraid of anything."
A while ago Rachel asked me if I would be willing to knit a Jayne Cobb hat for a friend of hers -- all red, and orange and yellow. Seems another friend wanted to make this friend such a hat and bought the yarn but found the knitting was not so much her thing. So Rachel offered me up. And it was really fun. And now it's all done.
And here is the proof that I have no shame.
Me in the cunning hat.
The back of the cunning hat, showing off the pom-pon. (Please to admire the (nearly) jogless striping! Thank you.)
I sort of had to model it. Mr. Pointy Sticks refused and Gizmo....
Well, that just didn't work....
I'll tell you this is a hat that could probably stop bullets. It's made from two strands of Lion Brand Felting Wool (I had to use two strands to come close to gauge). It is thick and very warm.
And ooooooh, how I miss Firefly. And oooog, I think I've caught Mr. Pointy Stick's cold.
(Sort of a lame-o entry for the letter O. Go look at some Opal sock yarn. Pretty stuff...particularly the Hundertwasser colors in that last link.)
