Any Knitters Who Like Graphic Novels?

linked to Hand­knit Heroes yesterday.

Imag­ine you’re a teenager, and you have some… spe­cial pow­ers. Maybe even super pow­ers. And one day, at a sleep­over, your best friend in the whole world tells you—you’re not alone. So begins the adven­ture for a cou­ple of teenagers, a sin­gle mom and yarn shop owner, and a whole bunch of hand knit­ted fun.

Hand­knit Heroes is the first graphic novel for knit­ters. Each issue fea­tures a great sto­ry­line with knit­ting super­heroes, ter­rific art­work, and a beau­ti­ful (and easy) knit­ting pattern.

I’m vastly amused, and I nei­ther knit (yet!) nor read graphic nov­els. I know that does both, though, and I fig­ure there are prob­a­bly others.

Tarot for Knitters!

This is truly cool. It’s a lim­ited edi­tion, hand-​​printed “knit­ting tarot” deck. I learned about it via new LJ friend .

They aren’t releas­ing many images, appar­ently, unless you’re a friend of theirs on Flickr. What I can see looks very clean and simple.

SBQ: Other crafts?

Melange by Calico Crossroads
This weekend’s Stitch­ing Blog­gers Ques­tion:

Are there other crafts that you have tried and aban­doned? Why do you like stitch­ing better?

Short ver­sion: Because it’s one of the few visually-​​beautiful things I’ve ever been good at.
