I’ve been catching up on watching Dr Who (The David Tennant specials and Season 6 with Matt Smith). Having caught up I’ve been taken with the idea of making a Dr Who themed knit. There are lots about. Some of the following are patterns and some are individual projects. As none of these are mine, and I therefore don’t own the copyright for any images, you’ll have to follow the links for more detail (and pictures). For some of these you may need a Ravelry account:
Firstly there are cuddly toys, such as EXTERMIKNIT, Cybermat (not knitted), TARDIS and fabulous dolls such as this one of the 10th Doctor. As I have two young children I feel somewhat overwhelmed by cuddly toys at the moment. So I don’t think I’ll be making one of these just yet.
Next there are items of clothing, including that scarf as worn by the 4th Doctor. This site includes lots of detail on the scarf including great advice on colour matching. Here’s another site also dedicated to knitting the many different versions of that scarf. Then there’s the lovely Bigger on the Inside shawl, Beyond Gallifrey scarf, The Oncoming Storm gauntlets and various hats including INSULATE! I’m really taken with the gauntlets (and have already added them to my never ending Ravelry queue).
I’ve got an idea in mind for my own Whovian knit. It’s still at the random sketches on an envelop stage so I won’t say more at the moment. I also need to finish off some of my UFOs
P.S. As you probably noticed progress on projects is slow and I’ve got nothing new to report, except that balls of wool are getting lighter and bobbins of singles are getting fatter.
P.P.S. I had great fun on Sunday afternoon sitting in a field, in the sunshine, spinning with a couple of friends, at a local farm’s open day. I was only there for a couple of hours, but it was still a nice afternoon out.
