Commence the Geek Knitting

Alright, I have decided to embrace my inner geek. I have resisted just-for-fun geek knitting, because I still have little use for things that are neither functional nor beautiful (bonus points if you can name who said this). But I’m starting on a string of geek knitting that does have function.

Project One: Dragon Gauntlets in bright blue, reminiscent of Saphria from Eragon. (see, I warned you.)

Knitting - 3/25

 

And here is the link to the project’s page at Ravelry, with pattern information. No yarn information though, it’s from my mom’s stash with, predictably, no label.

After I get these done, I’ll be doing some socks with the same dragon scale pattern, then a few other geeky surprises, including Star Wars, Star Trek, and Nintendo Geekiness. Some Stargate thrown in there, too, for good measure.

  1. Love the yarn! Love your inner geek too. 🙂

  2. I recently read the quote but i can’t remember who said it. I love the dragon scale pattern!

  3. I love it. I really need to just finish something. I have started the bad habit of starting ten projects at once.
