After working so hard on those projects I felt like relaxing and doing some fast knits to give instant gratification and to use up the growing piles of yarn. After making the Markham and Belleville, it was time to be silly.
Since we’re going to a Comic Con with my brother for his birthday this weekend, I thought I’d make some appropriate headgear. Forget that it’s sweltering in Texas; I’ve wanted to go to one of these since seeing Trekkies in the 90’s, and I’m commemorating it.
The fact that Carrie Fisher was supposed to make an appearance made it perfect. Star Wars was our thing when we were growing up. It was the first movie I ever saw and it loomed large in my childhood. We have the action figures to prove it. (My children grew up handling them as if they were holy relics, never mixing my guns with theirs, very careful with the ones that had wobbly heads. They understood these things.)
Who better for us to sit in on celebrity panels with than the brother who has indulged me in long conversations and gripe sessions about various sci-fi shows since childhood? I swear we should be script doctors.
