Just a quick post today. My dear friend, A., introduced me to the joys of knitted amigurumi last fall. I immediately saw the geeky gift possibilities for my nerdy friends and family who have every other nifty stuffy and geeky toy.
My beloved big-sister (in-law) is a paleontologist who shares my own love for nerdy stuffies. When I saw the adorable amigurumi nautoloids on Knitty: http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATTnautie.html I knew that I had to make her a set.
Here are the pics!!! Behold! A coiled nautolis.
Coiling that shell was so hard I had to show it again from another angle!
I also included this adorable snail I made. I used the pattern from: http://mochimochiland.com/2008/03/free-pattern-snails-and-slugs/ which is super easy and fun to do.
