Dr Who?
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

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

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.

You've found a pattern for a knitted Dalek?
Where? My hubby would love that! AS you probably know he's Dalek mad, and we live with one!
