Quick project: Storm Trooper Crochet Amigurumi

This little guy was super easy to do. Next up Yoda!

The kit I got contains instructions for a bunch of characters and all the things you need to make a storm trooper and Yoda.

I got mine at Michael’s but you can order it from Amazon.

I like how the feet were designed: bobble stiches (new to me) at the bottom for stability and a little dimension. The “belt” is also a series of bobble stiches. The book has very clear instructions and photos that were essential for a newbie crocheter like me.

I want to do the rest of the characters and am on the lookout for some solid wool (you’d think I’d have some in my stash, but I don’t). Any suggestions on what kind and where to grab some?

Travel Photo Friday: Legoland and Star Wars goodness in San Diego


Another fun stop in San Diego was Legoland. I’m a Lego Geek and a Star Wars Geek. So the new section on Star Wars was especially fun for me.

My favorites were the Millennium Falcon in Tatooine:

And the Hoth Scene:

Legoland Hoth Imperial Walkers
