To Answer Your Questions...

The shoes are "Brown's Landing" and I can only come up with e-bay links when I google that. My mother thinks she got them at a Bass Outlet or some such shoe place. Sheesh. Show y'all some socks modeled in shoes and you go nuts for the shoe! Fine. That's fine. Just you wait until you see the NEXT finished socks modeled! They're a thing of beauty! Ok, I was able to show y'all the majority of my knitted gifts prior to the big day, but there was one item I had to withhold from view until now. Behold. The hat they call "Jayne". Jayne Hat! I bought the kit to make this cunning hat from my friend Tvini from her shop Wear With Style. Shop? Is that right term wheni it's online only? Anyway, the kit was fan-friggin' tastic. It came with stitchmarkers, directions for the cable cast-on and Firefly-fan-friendly directions. And a pre-made pom-pom! Does it get any better? Well, yes. She also has a kit for those of us with rather sensitive skin that requires a cotton yarn. I'm told my BiL is quite pleased with it. Coincidence that he and my sister bought me the Firefly DVD set for Christmas? Heh. Yes, Tvini, that means you can have yours back and pass it on to the long list of people you're waiting to assimilate. Also, I'm relieved to report that all my other gifts were also very well received. And with the exception of the purple cascade fixation socks (take #1) they all fit the recipient perfectly! So yay!

Woo hoo! The discs go next to a friend in Maryland. Yay Browncoats!

That hat looks extra cunning, in the parlance of Firefly. Go you!

The hubby has a work thing tomorrow night, so I may be later than usual.

Hm, yes, I guess I haven't been assimilated yet to understand the nuances of this post ;-) But the hat looks great! And what a kit to have all those inclusions and features!

I guess the gift was a hit according to the comment above! Good! It looks cute on you, and I'm with Bezzie..on the nuances..off to google it! :)

Glad the other knitted gifts went well. Um..brought my ankle socks to the movie theatre and ended up with 2 extra stitches..hehe..which were promptly fixed upon return home!

You look like the vacation adn holiday are agreeing with you.

The hat is super...now where are the other cat pictures you promised?

YarnNinja said...

Thanks for the link to the kit. I had seen it once upon a time, told a browncoat friend, and promptly forgot where I had found it. I just know I'll be knitting a Jayne hat sometime in 2007...at least one.

Jayne!

The hat they call . . . Jayne!

I can't believe I haven't knit one of these yet.

Robin said...

Yay - what a great feeling to know that the gifts fit perfectly! I was spot on with all of mine too except one, but he's 2 years old so he'll grow into it. Happy New Year!

Y'all are too sweet. I took that pic the day after MoMo died. I went home for lunch to check in on Ripple since it was his first day all alone. When I look at that pic I can tell I've been crying but tried to be goofy for the camera.

Lauren said...

OMG I need one! My boyfriend and I have been making the joke that I need to knit him a Jayne hat! lol

The hat looks fantastic, it looks great on you so it's a shame to give it away.

Too cute! You look adorable in that hat. I could just pinch your cheeks (if I was 60 years older...)
