REVIEW: Tvini's Cunning Jayne Cobb Hat Kit
I posted earlier this week that my fiance wanted me to make him a cunning Jayne Cobb hat so he could wear it to the premiere of “Serenity” this Friday night. Of course, there’s nothing I want more than to outfit my uber-geek in a knitterly fashion, especially when it’s something we’re geeky about together. Call it bonding. So Tvini offered me one of the kits she sells, saving me much money in yarn that I’d have to buy full skeins of, and including the pattern and shipping.
The package was shipped Monday, lightning quick, as soon as she received word that I’d sent funds. It arrived yesterday! Inside the color coordinated tissue paper I found ziplock bags that included the yarn, a pre-made pom-pom (woot!), plastic sheeted color photo instructions, and even plastic stitch-markers! She also included instructions and photos for techniques a knitter might not know, like the cable cast on and spit-splicing. I’d never done the cast on that way so it was very useful.
I was very impressed at the detailed instructions and the clear color photos. The only thing I could have asked for is a picture of the fully finished hat.
For $12 including shipping this is a great kit. I’d recommend it to anyone who wants his or her own cunning Jayne Cobb hat. Thank you Tvini!
