Geeky Amigurumi

It’s no secret that I’m in love with amigurumi, but to combine this with geek equals love OVERLOAD. If you have no idea what amigurumi is, where have you been? Call yourself a crafter! Amigurumi is to crochet (or knit) a soft toy, usually stuffed. It’s no surprise to learn that the term is derived from the Japanese words for knitted and toy since all early amigurumi was very much modelled on anime and kawaii style characters.

I used to be a firm believer that all amigurimi was cute. Not any more. As the penchant for crafting these alluring little critters has been growing, so has the desire for the crocheter and knitting queen to get more creative and lucrative in the design; concoct the tiniest crocheted snail in the world; be the most vulgar; or just crochet a scene from The Exorcist as the craft spreads further and wider than Sunday afternoon at the WI.

To save me from bursting with l’amour all over my new iMac, I’m posting the very best geeky amigurumi right here, right now so sit back and enjoy the geeky gallery:
