The trees are turning, Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away and a chill is in the air. Winter is coming! It’s time to burrow beneath a blanket fort with hot cocoa and a good book. If your home is lacking in the snuggly blankets, hats, and mittens department, grab a set of needles and go to town on some of these great geeky guides!
Crochet Game Controller Blanket

This fantastic blanket is 43″ x 50″ of Nintendo-y warm fuzzies. It was designed by Nicole Pellegrino who hosts her own Ravelry store of comic book and video game based blankets. She also has designes for Superman, Spiderman, Wonder Woman, Cat Woman, The Flash, and the Hulk. We really love how the buttons actually stand out on this design. It is only a matter of time before some wiring wizard weaves in some circuitry so you can actually play games using your giant knitted controller. You can check out the pattern here.
