Starting Over

I just started watching Season One again. Its fun to watch how personalities develop- I can really see glimpses of later Willow and Xander.

Welcome to Sunnydale

I'm so excited about joining this blog. I'm a Buffy fan from way back and grew up along with her through high school. I related to Buffy a lot..... in fact Slayers in general. I grew up with a single mother who was working hard to keep a roof over our head. We always had enough and we were comfortable and grateful for all that we had, but my mom also has a chronic illness that would make life harder at times. She almost died three different times (that I was actually present for, this doesn't count the times I didn't know about until I got older). My Senior year of high school she almost died and spent two months in the hospital as I started my last year of high school. I was alone dealing with things that in the real world add up to demons as I helped my mom recover all the while keeping everything that was happening at home from my friends and telling my family that I was okay and didn't need help. I started watching Buffy that year and it helped me get through and be strong. While I love every season of Buffy I think it's Season five that really takes the place of honor in my DVD collection. The Body episode was very real to me and I loved the development of Buffy's character as well as her relationship with Spike. I prefer Spike over Angel. I think their relationship was more real while Angel and Buffy were more like puppy love (sickening, sappy, puppy love). Before any of you try to flog me for that, I must also say that I love Angel as well and own all seasons on DVD (very upset that it was cancelled when it was although I heard there was a comic showing what happens after the fight- something about hell in LA and Angel riding a dragon...... Buffy is also carried on in Season eight through comics if any of you weren't aware).
I had plans to showcase a few sweaters worn by Buffy starting with Season four on my own blog and then I found this blog. My first project is going to be either the yellow and orange overlay from the Thanksgiving episode or the hot pink boat mock neck sweater that I saw Buffy sporting (can't remember what episode). Can't wait to get started!

Brief Introduction

Hello everyone, my name is Jen. I'm a huge fan and a friend of mine told me about this KAL and I just had to join. I've begun knitting again as a form of meditation, to wind down and relax. I'm working on several projects right now, a few Harry Potter related, but I hope to do more an branch my crafting into another fandom I absolutely adore.

Now, the favorites... I can tell you my favorite season is 2, but those other favorites are a bit trickier. I am a raging Spike fan girl, have been since high school (way back in the 1900s, I graduate the same year the gang did). That said, I think Drusilla is my favorite character overall. I just love the crazy ones, what can I say. My favorite 'good guy' is probably Giles. As far as episode goes, thats even harder. It varies with my mood, but right now I'd have to say Normal Again from season 6.

That's all I can think of for now so I'll quit before I begin rambling :)

Too Funny!

For those of you who have never seen the show, the stop-motion show Robot Chicken is produced by Mutant Enemy, Inc. Which we all know as.... right, the "Grr, argh" at the end of our beloved Buffy. Well they can never leave well enough alone so...

Also, Sarah is a frequent guest voice on the show. Of course they couldn't resist doing a Buffy parody...

New Member Saying Hello

Hi everyone!

I'm very excited to be part of this KAL! BTVS is my favorite show of all time, and so I love that I can combine my new love of knitting with my favorite show!

Choosing a favorite episode is really hard. It might be "Tabula Rasa" from Season 6. That's the one where Willow tries to cast a spell to make Buffy & Tara lose part of their memory, but then everyone forgets who they are. Spike believes his name is Randy, and that he's Giles' son, Buffy decides her name is Joan, everyone calls Xander "Alex", etc. So funny. Yet it still ends with that BTVS heartbreak Joss is known to do so well.

I chose to be in the Scoobies group - I really believe in working for good & for change, but I usually like to support the movement rather than head it up. For example, I've been out on the campaign trail for the next Presidential election, but I would never want to be President. You know?

I just started knitting, I've completed a scarf so far, and am now working on my first pair of socks and an afghan. I also created a knitting journal to record my projects. I am primarily a scrapbooker, so that of course was a necessity!

You can read more about my various projects and such on my blog at

Thanks for having me - looking forward to posting some projects here! :)

Let me introduce myself....

Hi my name is Denise and I'm from Cincy. My favorite episode from Buffy is Halloween from the second season. I'm currently knitting on my x-mas gifts and a sweater for myself. Right now I'm watching Season 3 of Buffy and loving every minute of it. I decided to join the vampires because I'm always the good girl and I wanted to be bad this time.

Pink Raglan

I've recently rewatched seasons 1 through 4, and I finished knitting the torso of my current WIP last night as I started on season 5. This is a top down raglan in merino for my daughter, who is 5 but knows all the lyrics to Once More With Feeling and will sing them while acting out the scenes :D. She's been doing that for two years. I watched loads of Buffy during my pregnancy to cheer her up and I think maybe that made her a fan before she was even born.
