I have an ever-growing list of topics that I've been meaning to blog about, but this has special permission to cut the queue, because it's just that cool.
Yes, that's right. -- it's an R2D2 beanie, complete with the little knobby things and everything. It's made by Carissa of Carissa Knits, who I found out about via the Craft Magazine blog.
If you like what you see, don't bother asking me to make you one. I checked out the pattern and it reminded me that I'm really just a beginning knitter -- it's completely over my head. I'll stick to crocheting coffee cozies for now, thank you very much.
