Introduction: Sperm

Being a crafty type person, I was "blessed" with two boys, who aren't the slightest bit interested in crafts or pretty much anything else I like. However, every once in a while we manage to connect, so to speak, over a project. Browsing the web one day, my oldest son saw a picture of a stuffed sperm, and thought it was pretty cool. My natural instinct was to say " I can make that..." and thus this pattern was born. It was my first attempt at my own crochet pattern, after decades of making projects designed by others. I especially like the appearance of motion with the tail. Of course, once the first was made, son #2 requested his own, which sits on the headboard of his bed. One of these days I'll get around to an egg for the other side of the headboard.

    Good one!

    Some people might find this disconcerting,

    but where would we be without the amazing sperm?

    O.K being a crazy kid i find this a bit disturbing but still it was a crazy idea and i LOVE crazy ideas so i think you are:


    Be nice.

     NOOOOO you be nice.

    why are people offended by this? i dont know why people think sex is such a huge taboo thing, like seriously? how do you think you were created?

    Now THAT is crafty. 

    this isnt half as bad as six grade was. especially with the pictures. . .   <:P

    after looking at the list of comments i realize that im pretty much one of the only people posting comments that is not a pro :( whaaaat ever i dont care :)


     Hmmm.   Definitely cute.  Just not sure about making it for an adolescent boy . . .  unless you also Made This.  

    Also, it looks like the diameter of the head is about 1.5 to 3 inches?  You realize the egg you crocheted would have to be a huge sphere?  

    This reminds me a bit of the microbe plush toys sold by your better geek outlets; not my cup of tea but interesting and fun!
