Every year around this time the Etsy users really kick their work into high gear hoping to lure holiday buyers with unique gift ideas. While sadly many of them are something that no one would want to unwrap (you can see some of these tragedies at Regretsy) there are some wonderful gems like the one below.
Pacman Ring Series
This sterling silver and black onyx set of 4 rings is a classy way to show off your love of the pixely little pellet muncher. Unfortunately the seller is all sold out of this set, but maybe if we all write letters to Santa she’ll make some more in time for Christmas.

25 year old French artist Stephanie Choplin is an Industrial Design student working on her Master’s degree. Her work is clean and practical with a modern twist.

For a while now Ive been wanting to make a Tetris scarf but have been too lazy to chart up a pattern and also have been stumped on how to make it look good from the front and back since Intarnsia knitting looks a mess from behind. Low and behold, someone on Craftster solved the problem with a simple solution….making it double sided.
I love that it just looks like a mosaic pattern at first glance but then you recognize the shapes and instantly know what the scarf is. Truly chic and geek ;)
The woman made the pattern and had her mom knit it up and unfortunately she doesnt seem to have posted the pattern, but another poster linked to a Tetris chart for making a baby blanket that you could easily adapt into a scarf. You can download that here.
Here you can see how wide the scarf is before its doubled over. A great way to make the scarf visually appealing from all sides!

Ok so my friend Patrick Klepek just pointed me in the direction of the most awesome ice cube tray ever. Ok, I know I find a new awesome ice cube tray every other month but seriously this one is amazing.
Ice Invaders Ice Cube Tray
This one actually tops the Tetris Ice Cube tray in terms of awesomeness and geekyness. The tray is a durable silicon tray that allows you to make 4 different pixely aliens from the classic Taito game which is one of the most successful and beloved games of all time. At a mere $7.50 how can you not buy it?
Mmmm whiskey and pixels….a match made in heaven.

It seems theres a never ending stream of awesome video game themed knits (trust me a I have a back log of projects and blog posts) but I found one today that is by far one of my favorites. This falls into the category of old but new to me…so hopefully its new to some of you as well!
Mega Man Knit Hat
Apparently a very lucky geeky boy has a super awesome crafty gal who knit him up this awesome hat. Now she just needs to knit him some Mega Man arm warmers and leg warmers and hes all set to battle Dr Willy.

Crochet queen talli_1985 crocheted her own version! Equally awesome!
