You’re looking at a key piece of my dear friend M’s halloween costume. That’s right; she plans to be “Sexy Yoda” and this hat is totally going to help her get there.
Basically, I’ve knit a Thorpe out of Mission Falls 1824 cotton held double, and the ears from the Felted Baby Yoda Hat. M is out of town on a research trip right now, and I’d like for her to try it on before I sew on the ears. Other friend M (also dear) was in town this weekend and suggested using a deconstructed wire hanger instead of the diluted glue solution in the felted pattern for making the ears appear more Yoda-esque, so I think we’ll go that route. And, of course, braided ties for securing the hat under the chin are an important part of the sexiness. (Can anyone recommend a good tutorial for half double crochet? I don’t really know how to crochet anything, but I might want to crochet a border onto the Thorpe, though I’m going to wait to see how the hat fits M before I do this.)
I worked on this yesterday while wearing my Kerrera.
And I wore my Kerrera while commenting on papers. (Yay!)
Boh did a lot of this.
As long as Boh is comfortable. That’s really the goal with all of this working — to create more ways for Boh to nap. And speaking of Boh’s sleeping patterns, today should provide more opportunities for Boh to comfortably lounge while I work. Time to get back to commenting on papers and prepping tomorrow’s class discussion!
Oh Boh. I wish I was snoozing on Amy’s lap on this rainy day, too! I don’t think there’s room for both of us though. ;)
I can’t even wait for the yoda hat to be done. I’m pretty sure there’s a special place in heaven for people who make this kind of thing for their friends.
Aaaaaww! Snuggly Boh! The Yoda hat looks like fun!
Sexy Yoda made me laugh out loud! That looks like the perfect recipe for an awesome Halloween. Glad to see Boh is keeping rested!
