Epic Hat

Whee! Knitting!

Here is the recently-finished R2-D2 Hat, which has eaten up hundreds upon hundreds of hours of my life <end small bit of hyperbole>. I'm only exaggerating a little bit, though, which scares me.

I've made this thing while watching all three Extended Editions of the Lord of the Rings, AND Star Wars: Episodes IV, V and IV, AND both volumes of the Tartakovsky Clone Wars microseries. Plus all the TV-less hours in the beginning when I had to focus solely on my knitting or I'd screw up badly, and the spare minutes I sat down to work a row, and the frustrating hours spent crunching numbers to tweak the pattern so it would fit the recipient's head.
I'm  really good at my own peculiar brand of Fair Isle/intarsia now.
