I made the season 12 version of the scarf for my husband las xmas (Took about 3months of lunch hour knitting).  I miscalculated how much yarn I would need so I'm making a norrower vesion for myself.  Its about 3/4s done.

I cast on tonight!  I finished the purple stripe (a whole 8 rows), but it's something.  I'm buying the yarn as I need it, but I hadn't looked at the pattern in a while, and didn't realize the first row as so short.  So I'll be buying the next color tomorrow.  I'm using Vanna's Choice, on size 6 Susan Bates circs.  Yup, cheapo way.  But I actually really like the points on the needles, if the cable is a bit twisty.  And the yarn is knitting up really nicely.

I started one of these (season 15 I believe) quite a while ago and set it down and then never picked it back up!  Maybe this is the inspiration I need! Cheesy

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I've always wondered what disease cured ham had.

After a DrWho marathon on our local PBS station last year, my husband said the only thing he wanted for X-mas or his birthday ever again was a real Dr who scarf.  So when my local yarn store sent me a birthday 10% off coupon this year, after making a year of excuses, I took the plunge and bought the yarn.  That was in September--I finally started in late October.  It hasn't been my only project--I do much of my knitting on my bus ride to work and The Scarf quickly became unmanageable for the bus--but I've tried to do a little every day and its now looking like I just might, maybe finish by Christmas.

I was a bit of a coward and didn't go for the biggest version [season12, I believe].  I'm doing the season 14 scarf which is missing some nice big hunks.  Smiley  And I am not doing a straight knit--in my limited experience, it would be likely to pull quickly out of shape given size and weight so I am knitting one way and purling the other.  Also, I am slipping stitches on each end to make a nicer edge.  I am using Brown sheep Lamb's pride yarn and size 7 needles.  I chose the colors using the famous DrWho scarf site but my yarn store didn't carry the exact type of sport weight yarn given on the site.  They were kind enough to give me the color chart and let me figure out what was what.  Last thought for now, it was a daunting amount of yarn to purchase but to my surprise, there is an awful lot left.  I'm not sure the amounts listed on the site instructions are accurate.  When I finish, I will be sure to list exactly how much I used.

My friend Anita and I are just starting Dr. Who scarves. She's going season 13 or 14 (whichever is shorter) and I'm doing season 12 but making the stripes with half as many rows because the scarf is a present for Anita's grandson.

We're using Vanna's choice and some of the cheap Bernat mega-skeins. We hope to be done in time for next winter! I'll keep posting updates.

I'm still knitting away!  But slowly.  It's sort of my in-between project.  I'm probably 2 feet in.  It didn't occur to me until my 5th stripe that I'd read the yarn label upside down, and it actually wants size 9 needles...not 6.  That would definitely have made this go faster.  At the same time, though, the 6's make incredibly thick and velvety fabric, which I'm actually very pleased with.  It will be a remarkably serviceable scarf, especially since we're planning on moving to the frozen north before next winter.

Well, I'm 1/4 done.  Yup...still going slowly.  I plan to finish it by this autumn, though, as DH is going to be in the frozen north, and has never had a scarf.  It's turned out a bit wider than I'd like, and I cast on far fewer stitches than the pattern calls for.  Overall, though, I'm still very happy with it.  I love the VC yarn, too!  The colors are perfect!  Though I wish I'd found the darker beige before I started.

I know I'm about a year late on this KAL, but I'd love to join if I could? I just started a season 12 scarf for a friend, and am about 1/2 through the second stripe, lol. I definitely could use some motivation to keep going. It does make good tv knitting, too bad I don't watch much tv ....lol. How is everyone else's going/coming?

I'm not OCD. It's CDO, alphabetical like it should be.

I already made the red, purple and orange one (sans tassels). it is so amazing. I kind of want to do the first multicolor one too, but not as long as my other one, which is like 12 feet or so.

I made one of these already and absolutely loved being able to use some of my stash on this! I made it for a friend from ireland who actually used to watch the show back in the 70's a nd he loved it! I would like to make myself one with pastel colors. No rhyme or reason to it though, just total stash busting! If only I could knit up a real life David Tennant though! My oh my he was the cutest Dr. yet!
