This is the first completed project I've posted here, and what better way to start off than by posting my 4th Doctor Scarf of (Quite Cuddly) Death?

All told it's about twenty feet long, and took nine weeks and two days to complete. The yarn is mostly Vanna's Choice acrylic, but there's also some Patons wool and even some plain old Red Heart acrylic in there. Finding all the right colors was the hardest part of this project, and I'm still not totally happy with a few of my color choices, but I think it turned out great regardless. The scarf is knit entirely in garter stitch, and a whopping 71,576 stitches went into this beast.

Pictures:

Nice face, huh? Sorry about the quality; it's hard taking pictures of yourself. In this picture I have it wrapped twice around my neck, and it still trails the ground on both sides. (Fun Fact: I am 4'10". This scarf is more than four times my height.)

I'm glad you guys like it! It was a lot of work but it's so worth it.

The pattern came from http://www.doctorwhoscarf.com/, and it's the Season 16 pattern.

WOW!  I am just shy of half way through knitting the original, and couldn't imagine knitting one any longer!  That's pure craziness right there.  Soft, squishy, warm crazy.  You did a fantastic job!

Oh my god, LOVE

Ok, so when I was still living in Indiana, I started a season 15 scarf, but then some life choices I made brought me to Florida, and now I have no use for my scarf.  I left it with a friend back up in the cold, but I doubt she'll finish it.

I think I might have to make one anyway and wear it around in the 90+degree Florida heat, ya know, to freak out the normals.


::edit::  also, i just rocked this.

Omigosh for serious? My very first posted project gets featured? Shocked I'm speechless! Thanks so much to rackycoo and everyone who's commented so far.

And by the way, penguinknits, I live in Mississippi, so I'll only be able to wear this thing for about three months of the year. I think you should definitely finish yours; you never know when there might be a freak blizzard!

To borrow a phrase from the Ninth Doctor: "Fantastic!"  Grin

My sweetie and I have just been getting into Doctor Who. I've only seen a few episodes of the old series, but I found Tom Baker absolutely splendid. Great job!!
