I love R2D2. Ever since my very first veiwing of "Star Wars" (episode 4, of course I am that old), I have cherished his little beeps and whistle sounds. Now that my little boy also loves him, we are all about these shorts. I bought the yarn for them a while back. I think these are going to be my first project once I get my fingers back into the swing of knitting. I have a lot of use with them so far...soon R2...soon.
