Knits for Nerds : 30 Projects - Science Fiction, Comic Books, Fantasy Paperback
by Toni Carr
It's no secret that knitters can be a bit nerdy-the hobby itself is so mathematical and quirky.
In Knits for Nerds, Toni Carr, offers up projects based on all manner of books, movies, and TV nerds love, including: A sexy Star Trekmini-dress uniform; Adorable Dr Who-inspired robot doll; Hobbit feet slippers; A laptop bag that doubles as a chessboard; A Joss Whedon's Fireflyscarf and some socks to go with your Jayne Cobb Hat; Baby beanie with elf ears; Big Bang Theory-inspired his and hers sweater vests; Padme's battle cape and hairstyles from Star Wars. The knitting webosphere is alive with evidence that knitters are sci-fi, fantasy, comics, and manga geeks!
For example: A quick search on etsy.com shows many nerd-inspired knitting projects, from Star Trek characters, to sci-fi inspired yarn, Batgirl gloves, and more; Doctor Whofans on Ravelry meet on in Who Knits?with around 5,000 members; Geekcrafts.com profiles any and all crafts that relate to geeks.
Yet no book of knits has catered to this community-or the many people that take costuming for sci-fi conventions with utmost seriousness and DIY passion.
