    Joan of Dark (a/k/a Toni Carr) is an avid lover of all things knit and crocheted. She has been featured on two DIY Network shows, Uncommon Threads and Knitty Gritty. She's the author of the book Knockdown Knits (Wiley), and her patterns have been published on and in Vampire Knits (Potter Craft). Her sense of style was also profiled in Indianapolis Monthly, Nuvo, and Intake Weekly. With a science fiction writer for a mother, and a father who made sure that her comic book collection was always stocked, she had no choice but to grow up a geek!
    Finallya€”a knitting book for nerds who love sci-fi, fantasy, comics, and manga!

    The best of science fiction, manga, and animaguiri meets knit one, purl two as knit siren and part-time roller derby girl Joan of Dark offers up an out-of-this-world assortment of knitting nerdiness inside Knits for Nerds. 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

    In 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.

    • Great purchase!!!!

      This book was a gift for one of my closest friends who enjoys knitting. She absolutely adored the book. I thought it would be more of a coffee table book, but she was already working on one of the shawls in the book the day after she got it. Whether you need hobbitt slippers or a star trek dress.... I would highly recommend!
