Geeky Crochet Hooks!  Made with polymer clay.

If you crochet or know someone who does...and they are geeky...
they will love these!  Great gift idea!

The Elder Wand from Harry Potter
Lothlorien leaf and the One Ring from Lord of the Rings
King Arthur's Excalibur from Merlin/Arthurian Legend
Sonic Screwdriver from Doctor Who
Lightsaber from Star Wars

Step 1: Supplies!

You'll need crochet hooks.

You can use any size hook...I recommend the metal ones,
but I am sure the plastic ones would work too...after all,
I've made lightsabers and sonic screwdrivers out of plastic pens.

You'll need bake hard polymer clay too...like fimo or sculpey.
(I used a combo of both, since I am running low on stock!)

The nerdiness in this instructable restored my faith in humanity for the day. I love it.
<p>Hi, you get a very good step by step tutorial.<br> Allow you to showcase your work?<br> http://world-of-jewelry.ru/shop/</p>
<p>Is it sad that I recognized the elder wand, light saber, and sonic screwdriver designs just by looking at the picture? Great idea! It makes crocheting a lot more fun!</p>
<p>Love this idea ~ Great for people with arthritis who have trouble crocheting.</p>
<p>This is sooo cool!</p>
<p>Wondering how these are to crochet with? I've been considering using polymer on some hooks but have concerns about the comfort of using them.</p>
I look at crochet hooks a whole different way now
LOVE IT (this absolutely deserves all caps)
Cute and clever!!! Great job, Doodle!
Voted! These are amazing!
Oh my gosh! these are amazing! I'm not that much of a crochet person myself but honestly I would start doing it again for that sonic screwdriver one! <br>
I LOOVE this! Now I have to hit up my local craft store for clay....because that Sonic Screwdriver is soooo mine. Oh, and I voted for it, too! *wanders off muttering something about Anders' staff from Dragon Age 2 as well*
Perfect for the friend that has everything for Christmas and is also a big time Geek! Thanks a ton!! <br>
This is AMAZING! May inspire me to finally learn to crochet!
These are beautiful, I have a problem with my thumb going numb rubbing it on the numbers I can coat them with clay and write the numbers somewhere else. <br> <br>Excellent it is one of those hit yourself in the head deals. Thanks for the great Instructable...
Love this! <br>
