I must say, I'm a total geek, and making geeky things is generally my main reason for crafting. When you love a tv show, or film, or even a book, it's natural to want to make something to express your love. Here's my attempt at the geeky craft classic, Jayne's hat from Firefly. I made it for a friend years ago, and crocheted it because I can't knit.
So I love this site: http://geekcrafts.com/do-or-do-not-there-is-no-try/
Geek Crafts had the good taste to post about my Star Wars amigurumi patterns, but they've got posts about so many adorable geeky crafts I could spend ages on there!

I'm a crochet pattern designer who loves creating cute amigurumi animals, and creatures and characters inspired by my geeky interests. I sell the patterns I design in my Etsy shop and I've had patterns published in several magazines. I have had three books published - Star Wars Crochet, Star Wars Even More Crochet, and Hollywood Crochet - and I have many free patterns available here and on Ravelry.

My Finn and Jake amigurumi patterns are now available to buy in my Etsy shop.
You can buy both patterns together or buy them separately.
Now I just need to get on with my Jawa pattern!

I hope all you Star Wars fans out there are enjoying Star Wars Day - if you don't know it's called that because of the terrible pun: May the 4th be with you (May the Force be with you). Anyway, my amigurumis are enjoying themselves (maybe I need to crochet a Cantina for them to party in!)
You may spot a new amigurumi, a Jawa. I've been working on the pattern for him, and it'll be in my Etsy shop very soon. Just keep checking here to see when it's ready.
