I acquired a review copy of this book through netgalley.com. This book is due out in a month, & since I consider myself pretty nerdy, it was a definite request! The author of the book also writes a blog which I invite you to check out! A recent nerdy knitty photo she just posted a couple of weeks ago

You definitely have to be a geek to appreciate this book. Patterns include:
* 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

But as you can see from the list, there’s really something for any fan! I love the fact that they include a mix of old & new nerddoms, like Star Trek & Harry Potter! There’s a baby elf beanie pattern in here that’s so cute, I want to upsize it for ME! There’s also Dr. Horrible’s gloves (you know, from Joss Whedon’s Dr Horrible’s Singalong Blog). Cool beans

Knits for Nerds 30 Projects: Science Fiction, Comic Books, Fantasy by Joan of Dark a.k.a Toni Carr
ISBN: 9781449407919
Even though there are categories: Science Fiction, Comic Books, Fantasy, if you change the colors to something mild the patterns can be adapted for everyday use.
There are some very easy patterns to knit, some are charted.
Cute: baby elf hat with horns is adorable and could be used on a daily basis.
Hand coverings in different varying lengths and patterns make it so the easy to advanced knitter wouldn't be lost making these.
Head coverings and cape/wraps are also a high priority.
Great for make believe or a child dressing up or for a Halloween costume.
Let your imagination go wild and use the patterns in the book to make a whole new world.
Glossary with pictures of how to do some techniques is at the end, very helpful and knowledgeable info there. ( )

My daughter wanted to learn to knit and thought this was way more fun than just making squares. Some of the projects are quite difficult but the instructions were clear and fairly easy to follow. A few of the projects weren't as cool looking as they sounded like they should be, but we will all be wearing hobbit feet slippers in my house this winter. ( )
