I'm a geek. I know it. I'm sure you all have figured it out by now, but if you haven't this will set your mind straight.
I crocheted a couple characters from Battlestar Galactica. (Do you watch Battlestar Galactica? No? Well then you're an idiot.) I used the basic head and body pattern from Christen Haden's book "Creepy Cute Crochet", and then pretty much just added modifications to make the characters who they really are.
Saul is my favorite little guy. He's not my favorite character, but he turned out so well. I think if I were to do another I would get felt for the eye patch instead of embroidering it on, I also would play up the insignia on his chest a bit more.
Lee didn't turn out so great. I know he's Lee, and when I tell someone that's who it is, or they know that he's a Battlestar character, they know, but otherwise he just looks like some dude.
I think next will be Admiral Adama. I will also be making a 6, Kara, Chief, Rosslin, Baltar, and Boomer. Maybe a Helo, but I haven't decided yet. I hope to have most of them done (they've only been taking me like two hours to complete!) in time for the new season to start, but who know's if that will actually happen or not. Time will tell.
-Cheers and What do ya hear?
