Made by the Geek Craft Flickr-er muppindotcom, I can’t even fathom making something this intricate on such a small scale. Look at that detailing!
I am not the hippest kid at the LOLCat convention by any stretch, so it is fair to say there are “internet memes” I miss completely, and plenty I just do not understand. Nyan Cat is some odd mix of both. I stumbled on Nyan Cat a few days ago, only to discover that Nyan Cat was in the process of actually taking over the world, using a rainbow shooting out of it’s bum, and wearing what appears to be a pop tart.
The upside to Nyan Cat, I suppose, is that it is kind of cute. Craftasaurus Rex (but seriously, how cool is that name?) sent me this picture of her cat, in the Nyan Cat Costume she made for her. Apparently, this is only a prototype, I look forward to seeing the 2.0!
*Warning to viewer: nothing changes. It’s the same for the whole 3+ minutes.

For the uninitiated, Nyan Cat is is an 8-bit animation depicting a cat with the body of a cherry pop tart flying through outer space. I have always been fascinated by internet memes, and have seen many flying cats and at least a few pastry cats, but the cuteness and absurdity of Nyan Cat is certainly the pinnacle of “flying pastry cats” on the internet.
Etsian BlackPie has brought Nyan Cat off the screen and into your home with this delightful Nyan Cat crochet scarf. Not only will you look cute and cozy in this wonderful tribute to Nyan Cat, but when life gets too stressful you can just close your eyes and imagine flying through space.
