Well I cast on this baby months ago, but kept putting it down cause 830+ rows of knit stitch gets boring. This was my primary reason for learning to knit and I am happy to say I have finally finished it, including weaving in all the ends (which was a nightmare btw). I hate weaving ends. I am primarily a crocheter but I wanted to knit this for a more authentic look. I did, however, knit it on smaller needles than the pattern called for (3.5mm rather than 5mm) mostly because I was scared I would trip over it (I am not the most graceful or coordinated person. It's far from perfect, one of my color changes is on the opposite side than all the other ones and I think I somehow picked up a stitch somewhere when I first started, but it is mine and I made it and I will wave my geek flag proud.

Congratulations!  I think the Dr. Who scarf is on a lot of knitters' bucket list! Grin

I like the changes you made to make is actually wearable...the one I made was 14 feet long and 14 inches wide...way too big to wear practically! Grin

Now you can move on to the next thing on your list!  Good job!

I don't see any imperfections anywhere, but I don't think the Dr. Who scarf is something that requires perfection anyway.  It's lovely, and you did a fabulous job!

This is great krissy-poo, I love the tradition of knitting  4th Doctor scarves it's a bit of a knitting staple. My husband made his own back in the day, it's full of holes now (he wasn't the best knitter). After he died I gave it to my youngest daughter and she slept with it every night for the first year after he died to remind her of him. I made this one from a pattern book from the early 1980s that his sister gave me (probably the same one he used)

Another fabulous job!  I never get tired of seeing these!  How wonderful that your scarf has such a touching back story, 80schick...it makes your scarf extra meaningful!

Congrats on finishing you Fourth Doctor scarf!! I just taught myself to knit earlier this week and started mine a couple nights ago... Not even a foot in Tongue Yours looks great and now I'm starting to wonder if I should have gotten some brighter colors instead of the duller shades I picked up.

Both very cool scarfs and they look well made. I may have some beginners to teach soon, I may use this idea. Thanks all!
