Crochet community stalking Joss Whedon (with Jayne hats)!

Jayne_l_2Never crocheted a damn thing? Perhaps you and I should start. Turns out crocheters are our people, if by our people you mean obsessive Joss Whedon fans. Get this:

The founder of Crochetme.com, Kim Werker, is launching a grassroots campaign to interview Whedon after he joked in a recent interview that the buzz for Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog has yet to hit the pages of Crocheting Monthly. (Thanks to Craftzine.com, and my friend Eva, for the tip.) Werker makes a great case for why Whedon should speak to her people: For starters, there’s a year-old group on the knit and crochet website Ravelry for fans of his work — called Whedoknitters & Crocheters. It currently has 979 members. The Big Damn Knitters, the site’s group for Serenity/Firefly “knitfans,” has 1,916 members. Both groups proudly handmake hats like the one Firefly badass Jayne Cobb (Adam Baldwin, pictured) wore. (CrochetMe has a free pattern.)

We wish Werker well on her Whedon hunt.
