To Joann Fabrics, Yoda Goes

I got a Star Wars crochet kit for my birthday, and I was super excited. The kit includes patterns for lots of characters and yarn to make Yoda and a Stormtrooper. I started off making Yoda with the yarn included. It was so much fun to make something following a pattern. As you know, I design a lot of my own patterns, and it was refreshing to follow the directions to the letter. I didn’t have to use any creative energy, just do what was already written, and it was rejuvenating.

Anyway,Β I made Yoda first, then I made Han Solo because he’s my favorite character; he’ll probably appear in a future post. πŸ˜€

I also got a gift card to Joann Fabrics from my friend, and I decided to take Yoda along with me as a companion. I’ll let him tell you about it. πŸ™‚

Looking forward to my trip, I am! Enjoying my trip in Claire’s coat pocket, I am not.

When we walked through the doors, greeted by this we were. Stopped to take a picture, Claire did. Funny, it is, seeing all the Star Wars merchandise.

When you pose in front of a Star Wars display, look this good, you will not!

Wanted to find some “Yoda-colored yarn,” Claire did, so she used me as a comparison. A bit odd, this was, but she decided on this shade ofΒ Super Saver, Red Heart. Camouflaged, I felt.

Taken in the Joann Fabrics line, this picture was. Laughed out loud, Claire did, when she saw this. Planning a blog post on the subject of Star Wars merchandise, she is. I did not get the chance to appear in this picture; in her coat pocket, I was. Good travel accommodations, it was not.

Enjoyed the craft store, I did!

Have you seen The Force Awakens yet? What do you think of the huge amount of Star Wars merchandise? I jumped on the bandwagon and own a mini R2D2 and a collection of Star Wars figures, not to mention all the things I’m going to crochet. I guess their marketing works. But that’s a blog post for another day. πŸ˜‰

Having a good day, I hope you are!

    Made me laugh, Yoda did. ? I loved The Force Awakens! Han Solo must’ve hurt for you, I’m really sorry about that. 😦 I don’t mind all the merchandise, to be honest, it’s good to see a whole new generation with the ways of the Force. ?

      I’m glad Yoda made you laugh! πŸ˜€ I loved The Force Awakens too, but you’re so right, I was sobbing at that part. And then I cried through the rest of the movie. (I put a spoiler warning in your comment just to be safe.) I really do appreciate the consolation, it’s kind of ridiculous how attached I get to fictional characters. It is so nice to see a new generation loving Star Wars, as you said! Thanks so much for your comment! πŸ™‚
