Making amigurumi ain't like dusting crops, boy.

I wanted his hair to be all carefree 70s-ish, but it came out a bit more Harry Potter-ish than I envisioned.   Smiley 

Here's a close-up of his holster and leg. You can see much better here that the pants are navy. Hilariously, this yarn is called "Bright Navy," but it's nearly indistinguishable from "Black" in any light other than noonday sun or a camera flash. I didn't continue with the red stripes on this side because I figured they'd be covered by the belt and holster. Well, almost ...

I'm going to do Luke, Leia, and Obi-Wan next ... but probably not for another month, because it seems I'm actually going to have to start paying attention in chemistry class. Egad.

Han Solo is the love of my life so I just had to peek.  Remember the end of Episode V, the anguished look on his face as he's about to get deep-frozen in carbonite, with Princess Leia looking down at him?  Burned into my heart forever.  Wink  Anyway, nice job--I love all the little details!

He's so cool, I love all the details. And the hair looks just about right to me. Time for another group shot, I think!

Wonderful! *applauds* I don't know which made me laugh more: Han Solo in the medium of crochet, or your opening quote  Cheesy

My husband and I are HUGE Star Wars fans.  After going to Celebration in LA this year (that's the Star Wars Convention), I too have been totally inspired to crochet something based on the movies...not that I've gotten around to it yet.  Wink

I LOVE THIS!  Can't wait to see your other ones!  Grin
