Gizmoto raves: "Who knew the Android robot would be even cuter in crochet form?"
Android Central says: "...the little Android guy above is making me think I may need to take up a new hobby"
Slash Gear gushes: "DIY Android mascot crochet is cool!"
I mean it's cool. What can I say? Ok, I'm done now.

In this last week I've gone international! Crocheted Androids have shipped (or will ship) to Sweden, Switzerland, France, Russia, Guatemala, Italy, and Germany. The pattern has been translated to French by a fellow blogger and amigurumi crocheter. Another person has asked to translate it to Spanish and I've given permission.
|They haunt me... in a good way.|
I've been so blessed by the response and so excited. I've been dreaming about Androids... when I'm sleeping and not making them. I see green constantly. My kids like my new job of making little armies of Droid bots. Though they want to keep all of them. The current wait list for a Droid is 2-3 weeks. (Which is particularly interesting considering I'm 3 weeks away from expecting a new baby!) In all, it's been a week to remember. Maybe we'll name the baby "Android." But prolly not!
