Early this year, as I was nearing the end of my pregnancy with our youngest son, I didn’t feel like doing much of anything. Which is pretty typical for pregnant women at a certain point. But sitting around doing nothing just isn’t my style, so my husband was trying to figure out ways to keep me occupied that would involve sitting. He’s sneaky like that.

Finally, when a friend gave him Borderlands 2, he had hit upon the solution. He & his friend discussed the characters and told me about this one in particular that I’d probably like. She’s a “mechromancer”. Basically she makes super awesome tech…including this robot that comes to everyone’s aid & kicks some serious butt. Sweet right?

What does this have to do with today’s crafty genius? Well, if you’ve ever played the Borderlands series, you know that there’s super annoying robot (that ends up growing on you) called “Claptrap”. So today, I was looking around for more nerdy/geeky/awesome crafters, and I ran across a website called Nerdigurumi. Since we’ve already discussed Amigurumi, I wasn’t sure if I’d do another post about it…until I saw it. She has a Claptrap amigurumi…I know right? My husband totally wants one now.

She’s got a beginning amigurumi tutorial…

But sadly, like our previous crafty genius, it’s been a bit since she posted. Let’s flood her with love & maybe she’ll start back up again!!!

Have you spotted any nerdy patterns here lately? Are you working on any nerdy patterns? I’d love to hear all about it. Talk to me!
