A Knitalong for Geeky Geeks

wonder woman blockI just learned about this really cool knitalong, also known as a geekalong, that’s happening over at Lattes and Llamas. Each week the dynamic duo of Megan-Ann and Jac release a new double-knit block pattern that has some kind of geekery element to it.

This is week 14, and the latest block is a Wonder Woman inspired number. Previous blocks have included the Superman symbol, the classic X-Men X and an ode to “Sherlock,” among others.

Even if you didn’t want to make all the blocks these would be super fun as potholders. Or knit a single layer and make it a fun washcloth.

The purpose of this year-long knitalong is to have lots of fun and let the geek flag fly, of course, but also to raise funds for Child’s Play, an organization that helps kids in hospitals by providing them with toys, games and movies. Very cool.
