"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner

Hooky, No Wookie*

I've been wanting to crochet Yoda hats for a while now. N's cousin (who is quite possibly the most Star Wars-obsessed person I know) had a baby recently, and N thought that a custom-made Yoda hat would be the perfect gift.

Of course, I had to make one for Little B, as well. He doesn't know much about Star Wars (he actually calls it all "Darth Vader" except for R2-D2, who he refers to as "DT-D2"), but I'm sure that the time will quickly come when he knows all about all things Star Wars. 

Have I mentioned that my husband is a pretty big fan of Star Wars?

Also, another very special boy in our lives turned one recently, so I included a Yoda hat in his birthday package as well. His sweet mama sent this photo to us recently:
Isn't he so cute? I just love those chubby cheeks!

As always, you can check out more of my hooky work here.

*Post title credit goes to N. It's late, and I was not feeling the creative juices flowing with this one.
