You're a crafty bunch, so I know you're going to love this. On a recent trip to SF's Japantown, I stopped in to one of the many bookstores and found this awesome amigurumi craft book that includes two of my favorite things: robots and DIY. Called Crobots, this gem contains 20 patterns to make your own crocheted robots to post on your desk, and show off at work. Although I'm not much of a knitter, the sight of these little robots makes me want to test my skills.
Just released this month, Crobots ($10) is geared toward the novice crocheter, but is fun enough for pros to pick up. And if it doesn't work out in the crafting department, you can always just cut out the pictures and post them in your office as some geeky wall art. Yup, they're that cute.
