Knitted BB-8 and BB-9E are ready for some treats.
As you know, Rozenn has done a most excellent job at adding some fiber-art-droid-designs to my office decorations. She also likes to make sure they are appropriately dressed for the season. This year, BB-8 and BB-9E are ready for Trick-or-Treat with custom costumes (and matching candy bags). Remember, if you let your droid go trick or treating, make sure they only get capacitors and ICs for treats; they are allergic to chocolate.
It’s a bit chilly in Western New York, and I’ve learned that my apartment doesn’t have any decent insulation. In fact, it’s so cold that even the knitted droids need scarves and hats!
BB-9E was a little disappointed (so was I) that Rian Johnson left him out in the cold, with barely a few seconds of screen time.
A while back, my wife knitted me a BB-8 which was pretty awesome. What’s even more awesome is that she used that pattern to knit me a BB-9E. He’s bigger, blacker and badder. Now I’m ready for The Last Jedi!

… that’s the title of an email I sent my wife when I came across this instructables page. She did, and now my BB-8 collection is growing. Thanks Rozenn! You’re awesome. I can’t figure out what Star Wars project I want you to make for me next; it’s too hard to decide.
