My husband is a Marvel, I'm a DC.
Well, at least that used to be the case, but in the last couple of years, that's changed. Since I came out of the comic book geek closet and starting buying all my old titles again, he started reading a lot more DC than he ever had before. Marvel zombies didn't interest him, but DC's Blackest Night story line has him hooked in a big happy "he has a cricket bat" kind of way. (well.. a paper cricket bat his daughter made him for his b-day this year. It will work for paper zombies)
He has a GL teeshirt he wears frequently and always gets compliments on, and I made myself a GL ring a while back. This year, for Christmas, I plan to knit him a GL motif scarf. I had thought about doing all the Lantern Corps like One Geek to Stitch Them All did, but in the end, well.. I'm not that good at knitting. Really truly. But I did graph out a couple GL logos to try out in a 2 color scarf for my first double knitting project. If it turns out I can't double knit it because I'm really really not good at knitting, I'll do it just as a textured scarf with alternating garter and stockinette stitch.
So now I just need to pick which one to use. I'm going to knit them both up as washcloths first to see what I think. I should also try graphing repeat motif to use in a hat I think.
