1. Sherlock Wallpaper Pillow

Andrea "Trooperschaf" / Via

Feeling "bored?" Distract yourself by knitting up this friendly pillow. The pattern can be easily adapted and repurposed to make other knitting projects such as a scarf or a blanket.

3. Plush TARDIS

Slide some cardboard inside to keep its shape, or stick to stuffing for a cuddlier TARDIS. If you want to get really fancy, you can get a recordable sound chip to sew inside for that classic "EERrwWwoooooSHHHhEERrwWwoooooSHHHh EERrwWwoooooSHHHh" sound when you squeeze it.

5. Jayne Hat

Fox / Via

Be careful when it comes to this space contraband. The Alliance / Fox has been moving in to stop the sale of unlicensed Jayne Hats, but that doesn't mean you can't knit one for yourself! After all, all good space pirates "aim to misbehave."

6. Plush Serenity

Kelly Gardner / Via

Knitting your own Firefly class spaceship is a great way to keep your hands busy and be productive while rewatching Firefly for the 16th time.

7. Weasley Sweater

The nerdy knitting project to end all nerdy knitting projects. A homemade Weasley sweater is the perfect Christmas gift for Potter fans of all ages, and if it turns out a little lumpy that just makes it more authentic.

8. R2-D2 Beanie

Carissa Browning / Via

Like the classic sci-fi films this pattern is based on, this beanie will never go out of style. Look good and stay toasty while you marathon all the original Star Wars movies before the reboot comes out. (Feel free to skip Episodes 1-3. You've got knitting to do.)

17. Monster Feet Baby Booties

Every parent has a moment after a sleepless night when they start to see their crying newborn as a tiny monster, so why not lean into it with these booties and remind yourself just how cute that kid can be.
