Geeky Tuesday #3 SackBoy

Little Big Planet is one of the happiest games I’ve played and sackboy is up there as being the cutest.

I love seeing Sackboy all dressed up as Iron Man or a wizard or ghost. It’s adorable.

Amigurumi designer Emjay Bailey has got to be one of the most talented of people. Her website Nerdgurumi (click for link) hosts a plethora of cute, strange, geeky, awesome designs that are constantly being pinned onto Pintrest by yours truly =3

I’ve tried a few of her things before and they always turn out awesome.

This pattern is available for free as a Ravelry download.

Happy hooking!

Geeky Tuesday #2 Strongbad

Hello again another Tuesday!

This weeks geek out is close to my heart. Strongbad is one of my favorite cartoon characters, I had spent countless hours watching episodes and then worryingly trying to talk like him.

The designer Aleta Fera has done really well to get the sizing right for all the different parts and I love the face.

Geeky Tuesday #1- The Claptrap

I love Crochet. I love it to bits. Since finding it it has come in useful, been calming, and been an endless source of fun.

Ravelry is a fantastic website for patterns, finished products and sharing the wooly love. I’m a big fan. I’ve been digging through the yarn to find some of my favorite patterns on here.

I present my Geeky Tuesday collection; the best of ravelry geekiness blogged Tuesdays.

This week I’m in love with Claptrap from Borderlands, I played this recently and it’s really funny, high octane fun. I love the animation style.

Day 1- Squishy Cat Amigurumi

DSCF1881I was in the trust pound shop the other day and came across parcel string. I did not really have much use for it in the old days but that was when I couldn’t crochet…

Parcel string is great to crochet with in a 5.5 or 6mm crochet hook. It is really sturdy and creates a surprisingly soft yet very strong finish. Originally I had wanted to make cat toys from it, but I thought I aught to test it out.

Low and behold! Squishy cat!

The pattern was very simple. Gained from the book found on amazon here, Puffy Pals by Sayjal, at £1.91.

The books patterns are really easy to follow and take less than 1 hour and a half to complete including features. There are so many variations on the basic pattern I’ve been having great fun with it! Parcel string is a really fun medium 3 balls £1!! Who can resist that!
