With the holidays approaching faster than we are ready for, it’s time to start thinking presents, so we are highlighting some for you!
If you are a knitter, and have nerds or geeks on your list…. then you need the Knits for Nerds book! Knit them something awesome for Christmas. If, however, you have a knitter on your list….then you should purchase Knits for Nerds for them as a gift!!
This book was created specifically for people who love: sci-fi, fantasy, comics, and manga!
The patterns for 30 iconic clothing and accessory items inspired by
popular TV shows, books, films, comics, and more–including Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Firefly–are presented alongside full-color photographs showcasing completed projects, such as:* Lieutenant Uhura’s sexy Star Trek minidress* Hobbit feet slippers* Firefly-inspired scarf, socks, hat, and jacket* Tank Girl socks* Hermione Granger’s secret beaded bag* Manga-inspired leg warmers* The Big Bang Theory-inspired his and hers sweater-vests* Lord of the Rings-inspired shrug
addition to a wardrobe of costume finery, hobbyists will also find
instructions for practical projects such as an e-reader cover or a
laptop bag crafted of checkered fabric that serves double-duty as a
chessboard and carryall, as well as patterns for plush toys inspired by Star Trek, robots, and the comic book Squee! Wear (and knit!) your nerdiness on your sleeve with Knits for Nerds.
Overall this is on my list because:
1. I am on knitter, and always love knitting patterns to have on hand.
2. I am a nerd and want some of these!
3. I have nerds on my list who would go nuts for some of things made for them!
