KnitsKnits For Nerds
30 Projects: Science Fiction, Comic Books, Fantasy
Paperback | Kindle
By Joan of Dark, a.k.a. Toni Carr
Publisher: Andrews McMeel Publishing
Release date: February 21, 2012

Geek goddess and Roller Derby maven Toni Carr, a.k.a. Joan of Dark, has whipped up the amazing Knits For Nerds as her “gushy love letter to the nerd community.” That love is palpable in every beautifully photographed and neatly arranged page of this how-to guide for geek garb.

Inspired by the handmade costumes and adornments worn by sci-fi convention attendees, Carr has created 30 knitting patterns for such projects as Hobbit Feet Slippers, Trek Girl Dress, Big Bang Sweater Vest (for girls and guys!), and the Super Awesome Fantastic Mega Cute Manga Leg Warmers (which are fabulous, by the way). My personal favorites are the Dragon Rider Gloves and Padme’s Battle Cape.

The bummer is that you sort of have to know how to knit things, which I don’t. If you do, then you’re set. If you don’t, then buy this book and beg the knitters in your sphere to teach you the basics or pick up a beginner’s book to get yourself started. Personally, I plan to sort of drop Knits For Nerds in front of our family’s only known knitter with a casual reminder that Christmas is always right around the corner.

Carr is also the author of Knockdown Knits: 30 Projects from the Roller Derby Track.
