It’s fun to dress like superheroes, but spandex isn’t comfortable and isn’t made to be worn every day. Nerdy t-shirts are another fun way to show your love for a character to the world, but they won’t keep you warm in the winter. What’s a geek to do? Add flair with an accessory like a scarf! Etsy seller OOAKrafts has a variety of fleece scarves featuring superhero logos; they look awesome and they’ll keep you cozy.

Crochet Superhero Shield blanket

Captain America shield blanket

Just in time for the premiere of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., look at the fun Little Super Hero Blanket I found over at Lion Brand Yarn. Methinks it looks an awful lot like a Captain America shield, no?

Made with super bulky yarn and an “N” hook, I bet the pattern comes together pretty quickly. It would make a cool area rug or wall hanging for a kid’s room. Looks like you could also easily adapt it to a pillow, so it would be even more shield-like. What fun it would be to toss that around the room while pretending to save the world!

Anyone else looking forward to the new Joss Whedon series? We certainly are in our house!

Knit Your Own Superhero, or Stormtrooper, or Hobbit

Nerd Knitting on Tumblr has a series of patterns for dolls, across a variety of fandoms. But what caught my eye was one of the most recent posts. With Great Knitting Comes Great Responsibility.

Spider-Man has always been one of my favorite superheroes. So I was even more pleased when I wandered over to the tumblr and found characters from Star Wars, Game of Thrones, Batman, The Hobbit, and even Captain Jack…Sparrow.  The pattern is worked flat then sown up and stuffed to make the doll.  The patterns build up from one another, so I’d say read a couple before you get started, but this is mentioned in each one. So get your needles and  ‘Let’s put a smile on that face’.
