This is the first (needle) knitting project I have finished. Whew!

Pattern: I used the instructions found at http://doctorwhoscarf.com
Yarn: Vanna's Choice (I'm allergic to wool)
Needles: 4mm circs
Time: I started working on this in January and just finished today, but I kept close track of my progress, and according to my notes, this took 17 days of actual knitting.

It measures 11" wide, and came out a little short, at about 14', but I think it'll stretch out more over time.

When I went to take a picture, I immediately thought of the way I usually display a scarf, but, er...



It's a tad too big for my bear...

So, I decided to freak out the neighbours a bit and tried taking a pic in the common hallway:


But that doesn't show the colours very well, so....



That'll do. :-)

It turned out great...did you have any troubles swapping out the colors with the Vanna White yarn?

You didn't keep the colors you used by any chance, did you? Grin

I do have them, actually!

Red: Brick
Purple: Burgundy
Grey: Charcoal Grey
Beige: Beige
Brown: Toffee
Yellow: Mustard
Green: Olive

I originally ordered one of each, and two of the green.  However, I ran out of grey before finishing the last stripe (so I did two rows less than I was supposed to... I added two extra rows to the last brown stripe).  I came right down to the wire on the red.

HOWEVER! I forgot, while I was knitting, that the pattern calls for a fringe! D'oh!  I ended up needing an extra ball of the red and grey in order to do that.

I may have been able to get by with only one ball of green, but I wasn't sure how many rows what I had left of the first ball would do, so when I did a wide green stripe, I switched to the second ball.

I applaud you in completion of this daunting task!

I know when I finished mine I felt like doing several victory laps.
You go into it thinking "What's the big deal? It's just garter stitch!"

IT'S A BIG DEAL!!!!

Way to go looks great, and I love that you posted the Vanna's Choice substitution colors for everyone. Very Thoughtful Cool

But now you have it done and under your belt (or around yours and a friend or two's necks).
You deserve the knit number induced coma!
Enjoy the rest Wink

Tom Baker scarves always impress the heck out of me, but I live in a hot climate so I've never given in to the temptation to make one. I'm afraid your providing the yarn colors and amounts you used is making it even more tempting, though. Must be strong!  Cheesy
