Martha, you could just felt one.
i'm using sz.7 32" circs and my scarf only goes a few inches past the tips. of course, i only CO 37 sts. my yarn is worsted, and i think sz.7 is perfect. for DK, i would try 5 and 6 and see which one is tight without being too tight.

I've been going insane because my Scarf yarn hasn't arrived...

But I went to my lys to buy some Addis, and asked, "Ummm...you guys wouldn't happen to have Jo Sharp yarn, would you?" (knowing that I've never seen it there).

The wonderful girl working there says, "Oh, we may have some in the storage house." lys is in a converted frame house...they have some small houses next store to keep overstock yarn.

We walked to the other small frame houses...in one we found some balls of Embers and...lo, and behold, one ball of the Lichen colour that I can't find anywhere...hehe!

At the other house we found a whole bag of Lichen...so I bought 5 balls total!

I shouldn't have underestimated HILL COUNTRY WEAVERS in Austin, Texas (couldn't resist the shout out!)...awesome store with awesome prices!!!

Also picked up some Rowan Tapestry to try some Celtic knot type cables...could only afford one ball after all the Addis, etc.

i may have to start boycotting KH until i get a job. all this is making me and get all at the same time!

i don't think that's gonna happen. it's kind of like commercial breaks between Doctor Who eps on you tube.

I've looked all over and can't find a pattern for Sylvester McCoy's vest. (The second, not the first) I'd had the bright idea to add sleeves and make it a sweater or just use it to make a scarf. Anyone have a clue as to where I can find it? (You'd think with almost 1000 pictures on my site I'd have a better one than this.)

debinoz,

I'm usually pretty good at finding these things...I'll have a look around...

There HAS to be at least some kind of chart at least, if not a whole pattern.

Great idea..! Now I'm wanting to make this...AND Peter Davison's vest/sweater (the v-neck cricket-player type item)...going to have to look at other Doctors and find more!

Martha
