Jayne – the man they call Jayne…

And the winner is… Chris, who didn’t get one for Christmas, but will for Valentine’s Day. I recommend he sticks his children’s names on it, and gifts it to him from them. 😉 Just use the contact form to send me your address, Chris, and I’ll mail that tomorrow.
Thanks for entering, everyone!

How can you not love a man (in a cunning hat, of course) who robs from the rich and gives to the poor – even if it was accidental?!

As some of you may know, I’m a huge fan of Firefly. In the spirit of Browncoats everywhere, I like to give back when and how I can. A semi-local university does a fundraiser for cancer research annually, in which people shave their heads to raise money.

Our knitting group volunteered to make hats for those brave people – and what better than a cunning hat? Since I was making a couple for that, I decided to knock out one more for a lucky blog reader.

Things you should know:

  • This is as authentic as I could make it, which means I did my best to preserve Ma Cobb’s …ummm…interesting knitting techniques. I used the wonderful pattern here.
  • This is not luxurious yarn. It’s Red Heart and Bernat acrylic, which means it is to luxury yarn as molded protein cake is to something from Cake Boss.
  • The lack of luxury yarn means that it is virtually indestructible, and you can wash and dry it without fear (essential for long space travel and cramped quarters.)

Here’s how you can enter to win:

  • Leave a comment
  • Share elsewhere on the web and leave a comment to tell me you’ve done so (Since you may be sharing on private networks, I’ll take your word for it if it’s in a place I can’t access. However, be aware that the ‘verse is *nasty* to those who are less than honest, unless you’re the crew of Firefly.)

If you want to leave a link to where you commented, I’d love to see it. Also, please note that every comment will have a chance to win…so if you want 4 entries for sharing on pinterest, Facebook, twitter, and G+ – leave 4 separate comments!

I’ll be drawing for the hat February 6th, so you’ll have time to get it for Valentine’s Day. After all, there’s no better gift to yourself! (and if you can bear to give it to your significant other…well, that IS love!)

A word about comments…

Please note: Comments are moderated, and are posted at my sole discretion. That being said, I am grateful for everyone who stops by, and I invite everyone to comment!

  • Elizabeth

    I just have to comment because of the indestructible kitchy coolness that is a Jayne hat…it would clash with every coat I own, and I would wear it with fearless pride.

    I missed out on Firefly when it was first on and didn’t catch up with any of it until after Serenity came out to DVD (I know, shoot me). But I love it, and would absolutely LOVE a hat like this :-)
