Summary

Are you ready to embrace your inner geek? This fun and fashionable compendium of knitting patterns definitely leans toward the Dark Side—but who says the Dark Side can't be chic and colorful, too? With projects ranging from easy to advanced, there's something here for everyone: sci-fi geeks, dice rollers, and fantasy enthusiasts alike. And if you're less into the culture and just need something unique to hold your comic book collection, author Joan of Dark has that covered, too.

Inside you'll find fun and funky projects modeled by some very familiar faces, including René Auberjonois of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and his Blue Box Scarf, John Carpenter and his Asylum Comic Book Cover, and George R. R. Martin with his trusty knitted Dire Wolf!

Whether you consider yourself aligned with the Chaotic Good or take a more Neutral Evil approach to life (and knitting), Geek Knits has everything you need to dress the part.

Author Biography

JOAN OF DARK aka Toni Carr has had a passion for knitting since her grandmother taught her how, and she instantly regretted the hours in her life spent not knitting. When not knitting, skating, performing aerial silks, or running muddy obstacle course races, you may find her working in her coffee shop, playing the guitar or the bass, or taking care of her many rescue animals. You can read about more adventures on blog.joanofdark.com, or follow her on Twitter @joanofdarkknits.
