MAN...how the HECK did I miss this thread? I am doing the motherload of Who knitting.

1. I am making a Season 18 scarf (pattern from the DoctorWhoScarf.com) for my friend with Classic Elite Inca Alpaca yarn. I am using the colors Damask Red, Persimmon, and Seaside. Five feet DONE! [see below]

2. I am making a Season 16 (with the changes for the Shada episode, pattern from DoctorWhoScarf.com) for myself out of just some cheap acyrlic...Red Heart Soft Yarn colors Lt. Grey Heather, Grape, Paprika, Off White, Leaf, a brown color (the label says Black...oops) and then the yellow is actually that Vanna's Choice Lion Brand Mustard. Four and 1/2 feet DONE! [see below]

3. I am making a stuffed Tardis, of which I only have one side done and it isn't blocked.


4. AND...I am going to attempt a stuffed Dalek at some point


I REALLY want to make McCoy's sweater vest as well. He is going to be at the Gallifrey 2008 Con I am going to and I think it would be a HOOT if I could meet him wearing it!. I can't find a pattern ANYWHERE...not even a chart...I was thnking of attempting my own. PLEASE post if you find one!!!

I am so excited to get to know you other Who fans AND knitters!!

[PS...as a newbie to Who, I had asked about some good K-9 episodes. "Invisible Enemy" is the intro to K-9 and I was told "Sunmakers" and "The Invasion of Time" were two other good K-9 episodes...YouTube!!!!]

THERE you are!!!!
i figured you just gost lost in E Space or something.
i have GOT to make me a stuffed TARDIS. i keep running across the pattern online and i think i may even have it saved somewhere. if any of you are on ravelry, there's someone in the "who knits?" group who designed her own illusion scarf with the TARDIS on one side and a sonic screwdriver on the other. she said that if she gets a chance to actually put the chart on paper, she'll post it.

What beautiful scarves, PammieJR!

Your TARDIS is so cool...!

My BF and I have been looking at the website for Gallifrey 2008 Con, it's looking like we probably will go, just gotta find someone to watch the dogs/cats. I didn't know Sylvester McCoy was going to be there...cool!

Where the heck would one go to look for a Doctor Who hat? I mean the wide-brimmed velvet hat he wears, not a knitted one, haha. I can't seem to find one...maybe buy a fedora, then cover it with the right fabric.

Your in Time and Space,

Martha

You don't ever see the Doctor in the show. It's that Sarah shows up for a visit to her aunts house and there's this big box sitting there. The aunt says something like she's had it for ages and found it again while cleaning. I'll have to watch it later and check, but I'm pretty sure that's what happens.

One of my favorite K-9 stories is "Stones of Blood" Poor little fella......

Ok.. she wasn't cleaning. The aunt got the crate (same color as the TARDIS btw) in 1978. The episode I have takes place in Dec. 1981. The aunt mentioned that it had been stored in the attic of her old house and she had moved it with her when she moved to where she was now. Later is says she'd been there 2 years. So... I guess it had just been sitting there for 2 years????

OMG! I am so jealous of you having K-9 and Company....(must buy bootleg copy now!)...those are AWESOME screenies....I wish my aunt had something like that waiting for me at HER house..!

Well, I am pleased to say, I finally got my Jo Sharp Yarn!

AND my BF bought me The Key To Time boxset, yay!

Nice way to come home from a hard day at work...fresh shiny yarn (looks shinier in the pix)...and Doctor Who boxset...woot!

I hope these pictures show up...first time I've posted pix on here..heehee!







I'm all rough looking...hard day at work..just got home, haha!

Yours in Time and Space,

Martha

Lucky you! That yarn looks so soft. I thought about making another scarf, but as DH reminded me, I have tons of knitting to do already and it would just sit around collecting dust. I've yet to knit my own pattern for the TARDIS dishtowel. Maybe after Christmas!

TARDIS DISHTOWEL!! I WANT!

I bet it cleans dishes better than regular dishtowels...but somehow gets lost and never makes it into the laundry basket......hehe!

btw: this yarn is SO much softer than I thought it would be...not itchy at all...and really more substantial than most DK I've worked with...nice...I'm starting on the second colour of the scarf now....trying the changing yarn colour method that Chris' Doctor Who Scarf website mentions...the one Mrs. Pope used on the original...different, but I like it!

i've been looking for yarn for Rose's Wrist Warmers and i really wanted the Peru Luxury DK that the designer used (since it would only cost $6 and is the absolute PERFECT color), but i can only find it at Little Knits and almost all the colors are gone. can you guys think of anything else that would work? KP has bare hanks of the superwash merino for $6. it's 246 yards. that's more than enough, and i could dye it to (hopefully) match the ones she wore, but i just read in another thread that it can pill. would the merino (w/o silk) be as soft as something else with silk?

Martha, you look like you're feeling much better. i wonder why that could be.
