The Force

Filed under: Knitting — by bethc @ 2:20 pm

Perhaps I’m just going for more hits on my blog from all the people searching for Star Wars, or perhaps I remembered to bring the Baby Yoda to school and then managed to get Julie to take photos for me!

This darling pattern comes from Cari of Dogs Steal Yarn and can be found here. I used Mission Falls 1824 Cotton as the pattern calls for and I got the yarn here mostly because of this.

As I posted yesterday, this is going to baby Eli. The latest news is that they think he has Hirschsprung’s Disease. From what I have read the long-term prognosis is good, but it may be a bit of a struggle in the short-run.

As an aside, see the cute labels mom got me for Christmas? Makes me feel all official!

Here’s the note that’s going into the package:

Dear Eli,

Here’s the sweater I knit for you. The person who made the pattern called it the Baby Yoda Sweater after a character in a bunch of movies. In those movies Yoda is a very wise (and rather strange looking) teacher who helps young warriors learn about doing the right thing. Some of those he teaches have struggles, but Yoda helps them learn about “The Force,” which gives them the strength to carry on.

Your entrance into this strange and wonderful world of ours has not been without bumps. But know that you have a loving family, and a larger community to care for you. May the Force be with you little Eli, that and all my love.


  1. The force is strong with you, the sweater is darling!

  3. The sweater is fabulous (and so, I must say, are the photos…). But your letter to Eli is the best part.

  4. The sweater is really beautiful and along with the note I think it’s a perfect gift! The label is a great touch… I’ve been meaning to hint to someone that I need some of those.
