Instead of partying this evening, I got out the number 3 crochet hook (it's the light blue one, and it's my favourite) and finished Yoda's hands and cane.
I have to throw false modesty to the wind and say he turned out far better than I was expecting him to. Yoda himself is crocheted in cotton, with hair made of strands of cotton rug-hooked in and polymer clay button eyes. His clothes are all knitted, the top and trousers from brown cotton, and the robe from new wool. I also crocheted a cane from beige cotton, and made loops from his fingers so he can hold the handle. The cane and the robe are removable, and of course Yoda can wear his hood up or down.
I made him for my friend Laura to give to a friend of her's who is a huge Star Wars fan, but Doc C is already starting to get quite attached, so I hope I can smuggle him out when the Doc isn't looking.
