2010 Knits



I'm the Doctor! Dr. Who? That's right!

Dr. Who Scarf
Made for my cousin Joey
Needles: Size 7
Yarn: Lion Brand Woolease in Camel, gold and Olive, Vanna’s Choice Worsted in Brick, Plum, dark grey and brown.
Finished Size: at least 12 ft. unstretched (exclluding fringe)

Dr. Who does a lot of running!

This was inspired by the character Dr. Who, the Tom Baker version from the 70′s.

A locked door is no match for my sonic screwdriver!

My cousin Joey is a HUGE DW fan so I gladly gave up months of my knitting life to create this awesome scarf for her.  I hope she enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it!

that's a lot of scarf!

I also made another version of this, several years ago for Mr. Knitwit (who graciously..and goofily posed as The Doctor for these pics).  Here he is in the original:

My first DW scarf circa 2003

For his I used all Lion Brand yarns, except for the orange which is Encore.  Basically the same pattern, just slightly different colors.

A lot of fun, great way to use up leftovers, even if you don’t want to knit an “authentic” DW scarf…or one as long!  I think there’s a reason I’ve only ever knit 2 of these and they came along 7 yrs apart!

Yarn: Reynolds Lopi about 10 balls

This was a really quick knit and it fits like a glove.  You can never go wrong with EZ!

Ishbel by Ysolda Teague (smaller size)
Yarn: KnitPicks bare sock yarn hand dyed by me with KoolAid. Used just about half a skein
Needles: KnitPicks interchangeable size 6
Knitting time: Just under 3 weeks
Notes:  Super quick to knit and very enjoyable through the whole process.  Wish I’d have gone up a needle size to make it a bit bigger as it doesn’t want to stay on my shoulders, but I’ll just have to wear it with a shawl pin.
