There is no yarn at Comic Con.

However, there are a lot of nerds. Of all shapes, sizes, and persuasions. There were entire legions of guys dressed up as Stormtroopers, tons of anime sailor girls, cat girls, Jedi knights, Firefly folks (I myself was done up in Kaylee swag), Final Fantasy characters, there were artists, vendors, books, comics, games, movies, if it exists in fandom, it is represented at San Diego Comic Con.

I think there were probably 100,000 people there. There were more people in one convention center than live in my hometown. Times three.

It is impossible to knit at Comic Con without jabbing some poor nerd with a dpn, so you might as well not bother.

Eye opener, and that's no lie.

I'm so jealous! One of these summers I'll have to make it down there too -- do you think I could knit with circs?

A convention with no yarn? Whodathunkit?

While there may be no yarn, there is an abundance of pointy sticks! LOL. Although usually of the light saber type.

ComiCon is quite an experience. LOL Glad you enjoyed it!

Was there any news on more Firefly????
