This is a very late Small Business Saturday type of post. I promised my boyfriend that I would write a SBS post on his Etsy shop, and I totally spaced it! So, do you or any of your friends/family need any ideas for last minute gifts? You should definitely check out from Geek to Chic, an Etsy shop featuring hand-knit and hand-crocheted warm goodies made by my adorable boyfriend, Chris! He loves making things with geeky themes and absolutely takes requests (though they won't be done before Christmas at this point). Everything available on his Etsy right now, which is mostly things that aren't that geeky, is done and ready to be shipped!
Chris loves League of Legends, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, and Avatar, among many others! In the picture above, he's wearing his Teemo beanie (it has since been sold, but if you're a League of Legends fan, feel free to request one!). My colleague requested a beanie with a subtle Dalek pattern on it. Below is a picture of the beanie he took while working on it.
He has made me two (admittedly non-geeky) scarves for me. I love my light blue knit infinity scarf! The only picture I have of it is this one from when I visited Boston with him a little over a year ago.
The second scarf he made me is this really nice colorblock scarf based off of one I saw on ModCloth and wanted. The reviews on that one were pretty poor, so I'm happy I have one that is well made! It curls in on itself, but he knows why it did that. If you wanted one like it, he'd make it so yours won't do that! It's really warm and the colors are fun for the fall. You could pick any color combo you want!
The beanies Chris is modeling in his Etsy shop pictures fit a bigger adult head the best. The ones I'm modeling would fit a more average-sized adult/teen head. He also makes hats sized to babies and kids!
I hope your Christmas shopping is going well! If you're not done yet, check out from Geek to Chic and support a (very) small business. :)
