Knitting Notions

Just recently, I’ve rediscovered how much I like knitting. I only knew how to do the garter stitch until I discovered knitting tutorials on youtube. Knit Witch was especially helpful when I was learning how to purl. So since then I have been combing the internet, trying to find patterns that interest me. So far I’ve found a lot of nerdy things like a knitted Companion Cube from Portal, a Golden Snitch and House Scarfs from Harry Potter, Tom Baker’s scarf and plush TARDIS from Doctor Who, and a One Ring scarf and Pippin’s scarf from Lord of the Rings. What I really want to do now is find a simple cloak pattern that can be adapted to look like the Lothlorien cloaks from Lord of the Rings. I got a Leaf of Lorien pin for my birthday last year, and later, after Christmas, my brother played Frodo in a skit, using that pin. He made a cloak out of an old blanket, and I was thinking that it would be the coolest thing to knit one of those cloaks. Bear in mind, I’m a novice knitter that is eager to learn. If anyone has any suggestions at all, or equally geeky knitting patterns, I would be most obliged.
