Joss Whedon

Update: Yay! It’s on CRAFT now!

Many, if not all of you, know that I have some serious Joss Whedon fangirl issues. If you’d forgotten this, go back and listen to the very first episode of the Knitgrrl show (with Nikol Lohr, who recently knitted a Jayne hat for her Flip and who helped me introduce everyone at Felt School to the wonder that is Firefly last year) for geeky proof.

So, check this out — my dear friend Kim of CrochetMe fame put out a call saying she wants to interview Joss after his comment during this interview about Dr. Horrible:

Wired.com: To what do you attribute the far-flung coverage and buzz about Dr. Horrible, considering there’s been little to no press for the series?

Whedon: Fact is, there’s been some buzz, but it hasn’t reached the places it would normally. Where’s our write-up in Crocheting Monthly? (I did a very sexy shoot for that one.)

And her quest made it onto Whedonesque, even — see here.

So, not to be outdone in the Joss-geeking-out…

(I HAVE ALL THE VARIANT COVERS OF THE SEASON 8 COMIC BOOK! I got The Existential Joss Whedon for Valentine’s Day! I know all the words to all the songs in the Buffy musical! I can practically quote the “Swedish” from the episode Selfless!)

…I present to you a photo of the Joss sweater I’ve been working on for-evah. Well, of its chart, anyway. Note vampire bite marks near the top edge of the neck, Angel’s tattoo and Mr. Pointy. This is a rough draft on small gauge graph paper before I start working up the charts proper in Knit Visualizer.

Spike and Giles (our cats) are giving me funny looks for snapping photos at this time of night, so you’ll have to forgive the lighting.

You rock! I’ve been waiting for years for you to make this baby. A summer-Olympics project?

(I owe you email; you’ll get some from me later today. xoxo)

Well, charted is the same as knitted, right? ha ha ha. I’m getting there, I’m getting there… I want it to be really, really densely cabled, so the “filler” stuff (“fillion-er” stuff?) is just as important as the main motifs, if you ask me…
