On the orangey planet of Yarn
Well, here are the Stormtroopers - in a very orange light, transported by TARDIS no less to the planet of YARN ...
A good lesson in how changing the size of a crochet hook really affects the final project - Mr Big was made using the 3.50 mm hook as per instructions, and Luke Mark II is made using the 3.00 mm hook after I realized my tension is way too loose. (Remember the line from Princess Leia on how Luke looks rather small to be a Stormtrooper when he's rescuing her in the first and very best SW movie?)
The pattern is by Lucy Ravenscar who has lots of patterns for sale at her Etsy store. Needless to say I have a few - Yoda is next, complete with cloak. Who said life is boring? :)
