These may not have taken me everywhere I wanted to go, but they took me where I needed to be. Wink


I was in the Doctor Who fill a box swap and made a knee high pair of socks for my partner.

The pattern is from Ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/tardis-socks-tribute

I could tell by the second sock I needed to make a pair for myself.
As I like a shorter sock, I had enough yarn left over to whip these up. Barely. Especially since I used the charcoal yarn for the heel and toe.

I altered the original pattern a little, carrying the ribbing over the foot to get the tardis doors represented.
Also, the rav pattern was a bit big on my so essentially I used a tried and true sock pattern I know fits me and applied the charts to it.

Thank you for checking this out!

And remember

Sweeet.  I'm making these for my Dr. Who-fan buddy right now and I like your interpretation of them.  Playing fast and loose with patterns is one of the funnest things about being a knitter Smiley

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

Thanks for the great feedback!!!

So awesome!! I wish I could knit.
It took me three tries years apart to teach myself before it finally stuck. I say the world needs more knitters! Really, when the zombie Apocalypse happens, people are going to need socks! Am I right?
