Just like everything in fandom, I loved it so much the first time, I decided to make a sequel and ruin it. My first Fandom spotlight focused on those nerdy patterns that were part of the sale period, but now that the sale is over, I can search all 16,000+ patterns to bring you the very geekiest I can find!
BSG is awesome. So say we all.
Faster than Light by Gabriella Henry Yarn Weight: DK Amount: 394 – 437 yards Why I love it: 3…2…1…Jump! At only 394-437 yards of DK weight yarn, this really might be faster than light to knit!
May the odds be ever in your favor – of getting these knit before the holidays!
Katniss by Julia Stanfield Yarn Weight: Worsted Amount: 421 – 1225 yards Why I love it: It’s an adorable pullover for your little huntress with a hood and pockets!
Rue’s Song by Lindsey Stephens Yarn Weight: Fingering Amount: 780 yards Why I love it: It’s so pretty and cheerful, just like the inspiration. Poor Rue, I’m putting 3 fingers in the air for you.

Expecto Patronum by Karen Troyer Ladman Yarn Weight: Aran Amount: 150 – 210 yards Why I love it: The staghorn cables remind me of Harry’s patronus, which reminds me of Snape’s patronus, which reminds me of one of the best/saddest parts of the books. Always.
