EXTERMINATE!

I'm a certified geek. I'm also a huge Doctor Who fan. So what could be better than a crocheted stuffed Dalek, the greatest nemesis of the Doctor?

This is my own prototype, freeformed in Red Heart gray and black, with a button stitched to one appendage as his 'plunger' manipulator arm. I hope to make another one with improvements and write down the pattern:






Close-up. Can you feel the cuddly evil?


The dalek recruits a can of Barbasol: "You would make a good dalek!"

Holy guacamole Batman! That is awesome! When you write up the pattern please be sure to let the rest of us geeks in on the secret.

OMFG! That is too awesome for words. Growing up I was a HUGE Dr. Who fan and at one point, my mom had a craft book that had a ton of patterns for Dr. Who stuff. This so reminded me of that. :-P

BTW - I'd like to steal the first pic so I can totally make a geeked out Dr. Who icon with it, if that's okay with you.
