present for a gamer
My bf is a gamer and our anniversary is coming up and I need to find a pattern to make something for him. It would need to be beginner so that makes it a little difficult :-\ But if any of yall could help that would be great.

Well, if you know how to do socks, there's a cool pattern for an old video/computer game that he might think is spiffy.

Hope that helps.

This is a hard one! I am a big gamer too, and can't think of anything that wouldn't take an expert to do.

If he plays pencil-and-paper games, you could go with a dice bag, maybe? If he plays medieval-setting games (like D&D), I could think of some things, especially accessory-wise. I have seen a chart for runic letters. They were designed for fair-isle, but you could do them in a stockinette and purl pattern stitch. A runic scarf?

I would go w/ the sock idea if I had experience w/ socks and also if he didnt have such big feet! lol. I'm pretty sure that he also is pretty exclusively a video gamer so D&D is out. :-\ I have a feeling I'll probably end up giving him the DS case that is a nintendo controller as a belated present b/c my mom was going to help me make it for myself and he saw pictures of it when I sent them to a friend. lol. Thank you for trying to help me though! Its much appreciated

how about something like this?? http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=164379.0
I'm sure you could shrink it down and knit it intarsia style! If its a computer gamer you are knitting for, why not a nintendo intarsia wrist rest?? you could fill it with split peas or lentils.
or
this rocks
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127932.0

or maybe sew one of those "U" shaped neck pillows and then knit a cover for it for the hours of endless gaming. or just simply knit your self a sweater that reads "gaming widow" or knit a "replacement" him
for those times when you really want some company and the games have him.

good luck! can't wait to see what you decide on!
