The first batch of Star Wars crochet figures.


B. somehow managed to mistake C3PO for Chewbacca. He claims it was incorrect choice of yarn colour on my part (TBH, it isn't really golden enough, but choosing yarn colours on the internet is non-trivial and it was called "gold").

We never have a crib as part of our christmas decorations, but when I spotted this Smaug crochet pattern, it occurred to me that he would make a good secular equivalent.




You can just about see the sparks (courtesy of some optical fibre) in his smoke here.


It must be said the pattern was a little frustrating and not entirely consistent (or even always accurate) in its counting of stitches and we struggled with the electronics a bit. In fact in the end I stopped faffing around with conductive thread and B. just soldered everything together. Next year we will probably invest in a slightly different set of electronics and remake the head.

We're calling him Smaug but he does not appear to have Smaug's temperament. The pile of gold coins had considerably reduced by yesterday evening with no apparent ill-effects to the culprits.

Persons nameless, who probably consider themselves enablers, gave me a "Crobot" book:
