When: Tue., June 2 2015
On June 2, the geek world joins forces to complete the most out of this world knitting project. GEEK KNITS (St. Martin’s Griffin; June, 2 2015; $21.99) was created by Joan of Dark with patterns for all of your geeky knitting needs. Within the pages lies George R.R. Martin with his knitted dire wolf, Neil Gaiman with a baker street scarf and hat, John Scalzi throwing dice pillows, Rene Auberjonis in a blue box scarf, and many, many more geekdom heroes, all captured by the talented Kyle Cassidy. This new book is a project from another planet, it will “knock your socks off and then knit you new ones” as Kelly McCullough says. John Scalzi puts it best when he says, “if you’ve never met a rock star with knitting needles, it’s because you haven’t met Joan of Dark”.
