Whatever happened to Baby Jayne?

It's done, that's what. I finished my Baby Jayne hat in record time. Here it is.

I apologize for modeling that on a turquoise balloon. I thought about knocking on my next door neighbors' door and asking if I could borrow their baby, but I decided that would be weird.

I made this to be auctioned off at the silent auction attached to the Chicago screening of Can't Stop the Serenity, a geektastic fan event for Firefly fans. The Chicago CStS organizer is also a knitter, so I figure they'll be set for grown-up Jayne hats, and maybe it would be good for me to do something different. My baby Jayne hat was also, however, part of the extended gauge-fixing project. This was my first real project with my new, reasonably tight gauge. I knit this on size 8 needles and got four stitches to the inch. Go me! I think I am officially declaring my gauge successfully altered.

I'm kicking around the idea of knitting something else for CStS. Maybe I'll do a scarf with that browncoat emblem I charted lo these many months ago. In the meantime, I've got to say that I really enjoyed knitting this baby hat. I think I need to do more small, easy projects. Finishing things is good for the soul.
