As some of you may know, I'm a bit of a geek. My husband and I enjoy staying at home and playing video games, or watching bad horror movies as I crochet. We're pretty much the epitome of nerds. There's nothing I love more than to see nerds come together to create even nerdier things.
One of the most popular ones, is Little Big Planet. I've never played the game, however, from the moment I saw the poster of the knitted Sack Boy, I was in love. He's quite possibly the cutest thing ever, and it's combining 2 uber nerdy things, like video games and knitting. There have been quite a few Sack Boy patterns floating around online, and after a request for one, I was so excited to get started. The request is for a custom one, so I had to make the original for myself. :)
That's the original sack boy if any of you have been living under a nerdy rock, and haven't seen him before. :)
And, here's mine! Sorry about the poor lighting, I took the pictures directly in the sunlight. I'm so glad I get to keep him too!
I used 2 different patterns for him. I made the arms from a separate pattern.
Also, for all of you other nerds out there, you should check out this game! I'm thinking about getting a Wii just for this game! lol. It's called Kirby's Epic Yarn!

And this morning, I made this! I used this pattern and he was SUPER easy to make, and he's so cute!!
So, I hope you all do at least 1 nerdy thing today! I plan on crocheting. :)
