Thanks!

I was up watching The Ribos Operation last night while starting on the scarf...K9 is so cute...Romana is so annoying, haha!

Will post pictures of the Scarf-in-Progress in a few hours...I'm going to wait until the next colour change...

I wish I had an answer for you Lady Violet...about the Rose's Wristwarmer yarn...I'm such a newb knitter!

Yours in Time and Space,

Martha

Martha, is the Jo Sharp as soft as it looks? i was just looking at the current colors on the Jo Sharp website and the aubergine looks almost like the exact color of Rose's wrist warmers. makes sense, really. aubergine is such a british sounding word.
this is probably a strange request, but could you look at the classic dk wool page on the website and tell me how your colors compare (more or less red, brighter - that kind of thing)? (i can't do a direct link to the page because it's set up in frames or something so the address doesn't change for the different pages.) it will be a while before i can get it (obviously). i've never ordered yarn online, so i'd really like to know what i'll be getting beforehand.
TIA!
now back to Arc of Infinity

oh yeah, that is a great picture of the vest. i bet if you know someone who makes up their own knitting patterns, they could probably figure it out (or something very close to it).

YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!

if you ever have doubts, just look at that really cool thing on your head in your avatar pic. i can't wait to knit one of those. they even carry the yarn at my lys, so no waiting for the yarn to get here!

(the bad thing about not having a job is that i plan a gazillion projects to do when i finally get a job and have the money for yarn. the good thing is that i have plenty of time to work on my Time Lady scarf! )

Pammie, i just got the coolest idea. you could knit a fauxhawk in McCoy colors with a question mark on each side!

that was probably the combination of being unemployed, the fact that it's 12:42 in the morning, and my insanity/nuttiness.

Lady Violet, I think the Jo Sharp yarn is pretty soft..not itchy at all...pretty strong stuff, too!

PammieJR, I agree with LV, you should make a fauxhawk hat with a question mark, that would be so cool! Everyone would want one at the con...you'll have a trail of pleading fanboys chasing you around, heehee!

Here's some pix of my progress...I really have to practice taking photos...I lost the book to my camera, so I'm a mess with focus, flash, etc. Plus there's cat/dog hair on everything I want to pose the scarf on, haha!







I've got to weave in those ends today, also decide whether I want to leave out the dark grey section (see Doctor Who Scarf Season 12 pattern on DWS website) or not. Apparently the dark grey section on the bottom left was only in 2 episodes, the first, Robot, and in The Sonatoran Experiement.

Decisions, decisions!

Yours in Time and Space,

Martha

First off...I LOVE the idea of a Doctor Who fauxhawk hat!!! I can totally see it in my mind now, with colors that match McCoy's vest...you all know I am the queen of the crazy fauxhawk...you I am going to chart it during lunch at work! LOL

Martha...the scarf is looking great!!! Such nice even stitches and the yarn knits up great!!! Makes my all acrylic version look kinda lame! LOL

thanks Martha! so i guess it's worth the $6.50 a skein. eventually. i looked at the colors some more, found a website with lots of screencaps from doomsday, and compared the two. i think there's another purple that's even closer (i'm such a purist ). it's called cyclamen. looks kinda like something else. and the way i say it in my head, it sounds kinda like something else, too. how appropriate.

time for an update. my scarf has grown. 254 rows so far.



i'm really liking it. it's really neat how it tells me when it's ready for a new color.

okay, it's 2:12 in the morning and i've gone through two 5th Doctor serials. time for bed!

p.s. Martha, i love the brown and khaki in your scarf. it's like oatmeal with and without brown sugar. the colors look like they're spot on. oh yeah, i would definitely knit the gray section just because it was in Robot. but then, that could just be the purist in me coming out again.

Holy cow, I don't know how I missed this thread, but I am in love! Everything you girls are doing is so great! I have too many other projects going right now to start any Doctor Who knitting, but I'm going to hang out here anyway just to soak up the Whoness. I've been watching old and new episodes on Stage6 at work... but only on my lunch breaks, I swear! I miss Rose, I wish she would come back... What do ya'll think about Catherine Tate as the new companion?
