Welcome to my Nerdy World

Welcome to the geeky crochet world of Hooked on Nerdy!
This all started a few years ago when I wanted a winter hat. Usually, I would say it doesn’t get that cold during winters here in L.A., but I had to shave my head due to chemotherapy. All of the hats I liked with ears, horns, or teeth were made for kids, and that didn’t work. So I decided to make my own.
I knitted a few scarfs when I was in college, but when I looked at different hat patterns, the ones I liked the best were all crocheted. So I started to teach myself how to crochet with books and YouTube.
While I was in recovery from surgery, my family presented me with my first amigurumi (stuffed yarn creature) book. I saw first-hand how to make sculptures out of string. You can literally make anything your brain can come up with!
I started following a few different patterns, but then I decided to toy with making my own creations. Each time I invented a different design, the result turned out exactly the way I wanted.
After making a few different amigurumi and hats, my family and friends started making requests. This nerdy world is the result of the different pieces everyone has requested over the years.
I've gained so much from the time and enjoyment of crocheting, and I want to give something back. So whenever you purchase a pattern marked with a pink ribbon, I will donate 15% of the proceeds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Please enjoy the patterns - I know I’ve loved coming up with them!
