- Tank Girl socks
- Hermione Granger's secret beaded bag
- Manga-inspired leg warmers
- The Big Bang Theory-inspired his and hers sweater-vests

I (and my husband) are nerds. So I was really excited when I saw this book on Netgalley and requested it right away. There are so many things in here I want to make right away. My favorite is probably the Hobbit socks. My husband wanted me to make lots of things in here, especially the Star Trek mini dress. I haven't actually knitted anything out of it yet, but all of the patterns and items look well done.
I received an electronic copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
