12 Geeky Pins That Will Have You Reaching For Your Craft Supplies.

I have a new obsession.

It's looking up geeky crafts on Pinterest.

I have no delusion that I'll end up making all of them, but there's just something I love about the combination of my geek loves and my passion for making things. Really, crafty geeks are the best kind of people you could ever hope to meet.

Chris and I are massive Avatar the Last Airbender fans, and I'm desperate to have my own Airbender gear. When I showed Chris these knitted Link gauntlets, he asked me why he didn't already have them. We're eventually redoing our bedroom this fall, and I think this Triforce pillow would look really nice on our bed.

Doctor Who is basically my life now. Yes, I'm one of those crazy people you see all over the internet. Making things like this is basically why I learned how to crochet. And that bookshelf is so amazing I don't even know what to do with myself.

I actually have yet to finish playing through Portal, much to Chris' chagrin, but I was having a lot of fun when I did play it, and I love this crocheted companion cube. Stitch is one of my most favourite Disney characters, and I love this little crocheted guy! Ditto with Totoro being one of my favourite Studio Ghibli characters. And my love for the tv show Chuck is all-consuming, and I want to learn how to cross-stitch so I can have this in my house. I think it would also translate fairly well to crochet.

I have never done string art before but I am loving these so much that I'm going to make one for every room in my house! (I'm sure all of these will be familiar to you except for the pineapple - that's from the tv show Psych. It's so good, you should watch it now.)

I'm really itching to try string art, so that might happen sooner than later. What are some of your favourite geeky things? Do you have any geeky art in your home?
