Okay, so maybe they aren't bigger on the inside.  But they are definitely TARDIS socks!  I knit them for my boss because we are Whovian pals.



They are my own pile of flesh.  I started following the classic pile of flesh from Ravelry, but I wound up using different yarn and needles, and I didn't like the top down approach to socks.  So I followed a basic recipe for toe-up socks with short row toe and heel, which was much nicer for me.  I followed the basic idea of the Ravelry pile of flesh for the panels, but instead of using fair isle for the "POLICE BOX" (I was operating on fewer stitches) I just knit a black band and backstitched the words on later.  The windows and sign are duplicate stitch, another first for me.  I'm quite happy with them!

I'm amazed. I'd eat my socks to be bigger on the inside. Cheesy

These are RAAR grr ugggh! I bought a pair of TARDIS socks online once but they turned out to just be blue socks with some kind of iron-on TARDIS attached weirdly... these ones are gorgeous though.

Thanks for all the lovely comments, guys! It sucks to hear about your online experience, Muahahahaha. Sad Sometimes even officially licensed merchandise can kind of suck.
