In high school, Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the Starship Enterprise was my hero – like a lot of kids had comic book heroes or sports heroes, I had Star Trek: The Next Generation. So just about any crafty project related to the show is pretty cool in my eyes.

Becky Young made this cute pattern and sells it on Etsy (along with a Riker amigurumi, swoon!), and she said I could share this on the blog for the Monday “nerd” feature. Jump over to her shop and check out her work — she makes Star Trek patterns to order! Imagine, a knit Geordi LaForge! I love the idea.
