Star Wars Knitting

Okay, y’all know I’m married to a geek.  I say this, lovingly, as a bonafide nerd.  When I entered into our marriage, I knew there would always be a third wheel: Star Wars.  It’s not a big problem; we all get along pretty well.  And, thankfully, my husband is always more likely to be seduced by the Dark Side than another woman.  Ha!  I’ve never tired to knit a Star Wars pattern but that may change in 2021…  Tanis Gray has announced a new book, entitled Star Wars: Knitting the Galaxy.

Oh.  My.  Goodness.

Knitting a Star War

There are Star Wars patterns on Ravelry but I’ve never knit them.  I’ve been really tempted by a baby Yoda hat, complete with ears.  But it’s a fine line with such things – you want what your knitting to be cute but not too geeky.  You know what I mean.  

Star Wars Knitting the Galaxy

But let me tell you, I almost squealed when I saw a baby Yoda on the cover of Gray’s book.  Yes, I want to knit that baby Yoda.  It serves no purpose unless I gift it to a baby but it will just sit and be adorable!  

Real Knitting

Let’s be truthful.  I’m not going to knit a Star Wars sweater for Matt.  He wouldn’t wear it.  For all his geekiness, he tries to maintain a subtlety with it all, so as to not embarrass me out in public.  And I appreciate that.  

But he’d love a baby Yoda or some Star Wars socks or a hat….  

I can’t wait to see all the patterns that Tanis has come up with.  She’s a very talented designer and I’ve drooled over some of her sweaters.  They are lovely!  And Tanis also dyes yarn!  Yes, she’s a very talented lady!  I don’t own any of her yarn but it’s definitely on my wish list for a future purchase!


Amazon already has this book to pre-order.  It’s due out on January 5, 2021.  That will give you an entire year to knit Star Wars Christmas gifts!!
