Joss Whedon Was My Crocheter Once
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!
