Holidays with Jane

How to Crochet a Cunning Jayne Cobb Hat


Halloween gives children and adults the chance to put on a costume and play with another persona for a few hours. (Plus, candy!) I wear a costume to open the door and give out candy to the kiddos in my neighborhood. A few years back, I dressed as a brunette Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This year, I’ll be answering the door as Jayne Cobb, the Hero of Canton from the TV show Firefly.
