That looks great!  Smiley

I knitted a Doctor Who scarf for my husband a few years ago.  I kept "borrowing" it.  So he made me knit my own.

DH doesn't wear his any more, due to a near-accident involving the scarf.  He was driving, and when he got in the car he didn't notice that one end of the scarf was trailing outside the car door.  He got on the interstate, and he was tearing down the highway at 70mph when the end of the scarf got wrapped around the left rear tire.  Suddenly he was pulled up against the car door.  Fortunately (for him, me, and the other passengers in the car) he was not injured and was able to pull over and detangle himself from the scarf.  I repaired the scarf, but he won't wear it any more.  Just a word of warning for your friend.

Oh, my knitting gods! The miles and miles and miles of garter stitch! How did you not die of boredom!

(In other words, you are a far better knitter and friend than I. I'd take one look at all that garter st, and run away screaming!)

Congratulations on your knitting stamina. When I was in grad school, a classmate who was learning to knit decided to make a continuous swatch to learn various textured & cabled patterns...changed colors when she felt like it, and eventually had a very Dr. Who scarf. Yours is very cool.

thanks for all the comments!  it was actually pretty quick and easy since its all garter stitch and the stripes helped me keep from being bored.
