This is what comes of being a knitter and loving certain films. We get GEEKY.
Astromech Droid, R-series
Films: Star Wars 1-6
I love R2D2. There's something so cute and mental about him. I would almost certainly say he was my favourite Star Wars character (only almost, as I admire Padme's courage (and costumes) in the first film). I made the pattern up myself, but it still has a few flaws, which I will have to attempt to Iron out later...
