A PRESENT FOR A NERD BABY

I can finally post a photo of a recent baby gift.  WifeUnit's husband is a Star Wars nut, and I have decided that I really get a kick out of making baby presents that are geared towards the dads.  So when I learned they were having another baby, I went searching teh internets for a good pattern.



I'm a novice crocheter, but Lucy's pattern wasn't too hard to follow.  I just had a hard time with the face fur: I made two heads and a couple different faces until I got the one I liked.

Maybe when the kid is older...this hat?

2 God, you're good. 

And I showed that hat to the multitude in my house and there was much excitement.

3 That totally rocks! I'm still knitting on my loom. I made one bootie. Can't make the other one because I can't remember how I did the first one. Until I get smart, I'll have to live vicariously through you

4 Oh Ma Lord, I LOVE it!  That has got to be one of the most awesome things I've ever seen!

7 I truly love that I got to see the look on Mark's face when he opened it.  Even if having a mystery package sitting around the house waiting for him to get home was HARD. 

I'll have to see if the seller will add one more child size to my mom's order for last year's Christmas present.  The three boys with matching hats would be pretty awesome in a supremely dorky way.

I am so bad, I will confess, that the first thing that popped in my Star Wars challenged mind was Sand People.  And not Ewoks.  I'm not even sure if Star Wars has Sand People or what. 

And I'll just say thank you again.  I think presents for Dads and babies is pretty awesome as far as ideas go.
