Being a massive Doctor Who fan, I decided to knit something to do with the show...  I found this pattern called EXTERMIKNIT:  http://www.entropyhouse.com/penwiper/who/extermaknit.html and ended up making this Dalek! 



I made a few changes on the Dalek as I was making it, but being a terrible note keeper with bad memory I don't remember what exactly I changed.  I do at least know that I completely made up the plunger and shooter arms because I didn't like the originals. 



I actually had it entered in the county fair recently and I got a first place!  Yay! 

I'd like to knit my very own tenth Doctor, but I might have to make it up because I've only found crochet patterns so far.

I'm working this pattern right now, but I must be doing something wrong.
My body bobbles are falling across the purl lines, so i won't get that nice line up the doll.
I've got the right stitch count...

Ah! That is the coolest thing I have seen in a long time! You did a very nice job on it. I've been wanting to knit up a Dalek, so I'm happy to see one already made. Definitely going to try to make this one.
