Stop for a moment...

...to see whether Yoda approves of his new blanket.

My husband's students presented him with this toy Yoda as a thank you present at the end of the academic year. Yoda found a home on the book case at the bottom of the stairs and at some point, we started to joke that his robe was only thin and he might feel cold when winter came. I told my husband that he didn't need to worry because I would crochet Yoda a blanket to keep him warm.

So I did! :)

It's a tiny corner-to-corner blanket made with cotton/acrylic left over from the blanket I made for our youngest grandchild. It only took a couple of days.

Oh oh ohhh, that is SO cute. Yes he needs this blanket for winter and it looks like he approves!

The weird thing about this Yoda is that his expression really does seem to change. It's uncanny!

He looks Very Alive! Maybe the way his eyes were painted... What a cutie!

Love that, and the Yoda, and his perfectly coordinated afghan.

It was fun to make and it was also useful practice for the lap-sized one I'm making for my husband. And of course Yoda will appreciate it when the weather turns cold. :)

Yoda looks quite happy and comfortable with his hand made blanket. And WARM.
