Today has been super productive. I started out by making myself a pair of earrings from this pattern.
Then, I knitted up the Yoda hat I wanted to make.
Type your cut contents here.
The earring supplies only cost about 11 dollars, and that's enough supplies to make ~25 pairs of earrings. Not including the wire though, I will need to buy more wire (only .99)
I used Cascade 220 to make the Yoda hat. I was told that one skein would make two hats, but I added ear flaps and a under-the-chin tie, so I don't know if I'll get another hat out of the skein or not. it was only a 7 dollar skein, so no biggie if it's only a one-hat skein.
Here's my ball of yarn before knitting:
It looks like a nice Yoda color. Then here's the hat after it was all knitted:
And of course, a few shots of me modeling it.
I'm so sad because my ears are droopy :(
I need to felt it down though (it's a baby hat) and then stiffen the ears a bit. I kind of really want one of these for myself now. I would look adorable as Yoda.
I did find out that some people are modifying other hats to look like Ewoks. I may need to consider this option as well...although Yoda rocks hardcore.
