Back in December, Joss Whedon was interviewed by Kim Werker of Crochet Me. They discussed his thoughts on what he describes as the ‘desperate rivalry between knitters and crocheters’, why crafters should watch Firefly, his secret past as a crocheter and knitter, and of course the ever popular Jayne Hat.
How did Kim score the interview? By getting the entire geekcraft community to shout for his attention, of course.

Someone made a tiny version of the Shadows of the Empire novel. But why SOTE? Is there a whole collection of these things out there somewhere? What a terrifying prospect!

Since there are many crafty types on Club Jade (who are actually out of the closet, that is), we present them to you here:
Still reluctant to turn back into a Muggle after the hype of the past few weeks?

– Counterfeit some Wizard coinage for the next time you hit Diagon Alley.
Okay. You’d rather stick with the needle arts?
– Ease yourself out of Harry Potter and back into the Star Wars galaxy by knitting your favorite baby a felted Yoda hat
– Money woes preventing you from buying that new game system? Embroider your own!
– Don’t forget to crochet some games to go with it, while you’re at it
– Is sewing more your thing? How about hitchhiking across the galaxy with this really nifty Planetoid Purse?
Alright. Your skills lie elsewhere. Like food maybe?
