I could seriously wrap myself up on cold winter's nights in this unashamedly nerdy blanket, which covers every obsession from The Muppets to The Princess Bride to Doctor Who and plenty more besides.
The pattern for the knitted blanket is up on Ravelry, where the designer reveals the inspiration behind the curious centre square. Designer Leilaniac made the blanket for a nephew, and that's his name in the middle of the blanket, rendered in binary.
Like I said, seriously nerdy stuff. There should be more of it.
