:muah::muah:Hi eveyone,

Although nothing to do with knitting , i thought i would show you my husbands efforts.

He made a dalek from the popular tv show Dr Who. I could not resist showing them before my little boy gets his hands on them.

I have promised to knit him one but the only pattern i found is knit in the round which i can.t do yet.

GIVE HUBBY SOME PRAISE:muah:

Very cool! It always amazes me to see what people can make out of legos! Well done ritaw's hubby!:yay:

As for the scarf you might want to try knitting in the round. It is not as hard as it looks ( I promise!!!!!). To make a scarf you wouldn't have to use dpns. I am knitting my brother a Dr Who scarf in the round on a I think 16" circular needle. It is coming along quite well, I love how much more quickly it goes when I don't have to purl! Every Dr Who scarf I have seen has been amazing!

Legos: The best toy on the market. For grown ups too!

We were members of a Dr. Who Club, when it played here back in 1980s.

Does the most current Dr. Who wear a very long knitted scarf?

There's a good project for you.

Lana,

The current dr who does not wear a scarf.
The new series of drs has had 2 different drs. Both quite chic and extremely good looking.

Well here http://www.entropyhouse.com/penwiper/who/extermaknit.html
is where i found the Dalek pattern that I'm going to use once I find the DPN's small enough. Though since I'm going mad with waiting, I might just try to be all brave and attempt them on straights.

He does great work! Also, knitting in the round is just as easy as flat knitting. Give it a try, we're here to help!

ritaw
05-28-2007, 02:55 PM
I have just realised it is knit in the round , have not used dpns before.

this is me upon reading this thread - :thud: :yay: :woot:
yes virginia, there IS a way to combine two of the most wonderful things in the world. :roflhard:
maybe by the time i can afford to get the 9th doctor and season one of the 10th doctor i'll have the confidence to attempt a couple a daleks. :pray:

your husband did a great job with the legos. has he thought about putting a sound chip in it? i bet you could take one out of a pre-made toy. it doesn't take much to get these ideas flowing. :figureditout:

being the geek that i am, i just found a list of different doctor who craft projects (http://community.livejournal.com/crafty_tardis/1071.html) that includes several knitting patterns. i will MOST DEFINITELY be trying some of these. :drool: :woot:

now to get tired so i'll actually want to go to bed. :sleepy:

That's a fantastic photo. Abbily I'm with you on the Christopher Eccleston, he's gorgeous and to think he was filming five minutes away from my house! sigh!

I am with you two ladies on this one...after showing my fellow Dr. Who fans the Dalek knitting pattern, I now have "commissions" for four! LOL I hope they aren't hard to do. :oo:

I did come up with an idea of adding some type of metallic thread/yarn to the base worsted to make the Daleks SHINE!

PS. I want one of those bumpr sticker too!

ritaw
06-03-2007, 03:03 AM
What a good idea about the mattallic thread.

I would love to do this pattern and i was so excited until i found out it was on double pins. I cant do it, booohooooooooo

Good luck with yours and i would love to see a picture when you have done one.

Maybe when you have finished you could make one for my son lol

Rita

Nobones
06-03-2007, 10:43 AM
I'm with you Ritaw. Double pins...(shudder!) I've bookmarked the pattern though, just in case I get brave one day!

ritaw
06-03-2007, 11:38 AM
Nobones,

I don't think i will ever be that brave. I have tried circular knitting as well and that was a disaster lol.

Is there hope for me?

Nobones
06-03-2007, 12:37 PM
I'll knit you a Dalek and you knit me a Blossom!

ritaw
06-03-2007, 12:49 PM
Lol , i need a break from blossom as i have just finished her. but its afair exchange and i would like that lol.

You said you are no good with dpns?

Nobones
06-03-2007, 12:57 PM
I haven't tried it just sounds kinda scary! I'd give a go though! Not for a while I think I've spied my next project, it's another biggie!

How long did it take to make Blossom? Is it very hard?

ritaw

Anyone know where to find a Doctor Who ringtone? I have been searching and searching, and can't find one that I can get here in the States. I realize I am totally obsessed, but I REALLY want this ringtone! :P

Lady Violet
06-06-2007, 08:50 PM
there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with wanting a Dr. Who ringtone. if i had a phone i could get ringtones for, i would want one. it sure beats some annoying and obnoxious beep! having no present (dire) need to find one, i do not know where you can get one. sorry! :rollseyes:

debinoz
06-07-2007, 12:45 AM
I made my own with my data suite program for my phone. Unfortunately, that phone went haywire and I lost it. New phone is a different model and I don't have the DS for it. All of the ones I can find otherwise are not free and mostly the new series version. Mine was the 4th Doctor theme. I still have the mp3 in my computer tho, so if I ever do get DS I can load it up.

Abbily
06-07-2007, 11:02 AM
Deb- I actually would love to find the new series version, and I don't mind paying for it if it's not horribly expensive. Do you know of any sites at all? The only one I've been able to find is the BBC site, but it's only available to people in the UK.

Actualy, I found a tardis chart and if you just copy that pattern four times (taking care to remember that there's a little notice on the front) and knit a top and a bottom and stuff it, you've got a tardis :)

The chart is here (http://www.entropyhouse.com/penwiper/who/tardisknitplush.gif) if you're intrested.

Thank you for sharing the pattern! I made a HP scarf for my boy, and everyone kept asking me if I could make a Dr. Who scarf - I had no idea who Dr. Who was LOL

Yes Hubby built the Dalek, it's part of the family now! He's been a big hit with some of the kids we've had around.

Ritaw, don't forget anytime your in my area, you're DS is very welcome to visit Rosco. It's great seeing kids reaction when he talks to them.

ritaw
06-20-2007, 07:48 AM
I have not forgotten and i thank you so much for the invitation .:heart::heart:

It is amazing what a dalek does to people. it does not matter how old they are .


I love it.

Thanks again.:muah:

I know we were onto Daleks, but here's a little thing I made up yesterday. The pattern, if you're interested, can be found HERE. (http://whoplace.250free.com/page302.html)

The pic doesn't do it justice.

ritaw
06-20-2007, 12:02 PM
i am gonna make one of those , thanks:hug:

Nobones
06-20-2007, 04:22 PM
Hubby wants one, it's the first thing he's asked me to make him. I'm so chuffed. Could someone please recommend yarn I'd like a nice silvery gray or blue.

I used cotton-ease on size US8 circs. I've started charting the next one....It's the TARDIS , but due to the height, it's gonna be a bit bigger.

Nobones
06-21-2007, 07:06 AM
I can't wait to see that.

When I first met my hubby he had a tardis sitting in the garden! He was the envy of many a child with that one! It since rotted away but I tell the kids who ask where it is it just disappeared one night, then Dr Who came back on the telly! You should see there faces!

I always wanted one in my back yard. I had a guy e-mail me once wanting to use my TARDIS hum .wav for his. He was designing his livingroom to look like the control room. Column and everything. I don't know if he ever got it finished because I never heard from him again after I sent it to him. :shrug:

Anyway.... I got the pattern written out and instead of knitting the whole thing, I just knit parts of it to see if it was working right. I'm going to start on the real thing as soon as I get my dds's punk sleeves done. It's actually quite big, so its a TARDIS Dishtowel (http://whoplace.250free.com/page303.html), instead. ;)

Hope you enjoy it and use it.

Nobones
06-24-2007, 06:39 AM
When I click the link to the tea towel I get mobile phone ring tone links? :?? I want to make that tea towel to do with the wash cloth.

Is cotton -ease something I can get in the Uk? Does any one have a UK make they have used for wash clothes

debinoz
06-24-2007, 12:00 PM
Sorry about that. It's fixed now, hopefully!

Cotton-ease is a worsted weight cotton acrylic blend. You should be able to use any worsted weight (or UK equivelent) cotton.
