1  KNITTING / Knitalongs / Re: Doctor Who Scarf Knitalong on: December 17, 2008 07:57:09 AM
After a DrWho marathon on our local PBS station last year, my husband said the only thing he wanted for X-mas or his birthday ever again was a real Dr who scarf.  So when my local yarn store sent me a birthday 10% off coupon this year, after making a year of excuses, I took the plunge and bought the yarn.  That was in September--I finally started in late October.  It hasn't been my only project--I do much of my knitting on my bus ride to work and The Scarf quickly became unmanageable for the bus--but I've tried to do a little every day and its now looking like I just might, maybe finish by Christmas.

I was a bit of a coward and didn't go for the biggest version [season12, I believe].  I'm doing the season 14 scarf which is missing some nice big hunks.  Smiley  And I am not doing a straight knit--in my limited experience, it would be likely to pull quickly out of shape given size and weight so I am knitting one way and purling the other.  Also, I am slipping stitches on each end to make a nicer edge.  I am using Brown sheep Lamb's pride yarn and size 7 needles.  I chose the colors using the famous DrWho scarf site but my yarn store didn't carry the exact type of sport weight yarn given on the site.  They were kind enough to give me the color chart and let me figure out what was what.  Last thought for now, it was a daunting amount of yarn to purchase but to my surprise, there is an awful lot left.  I'm not sure the amounts listed on the site instructions are accurate.  When I finish, I will be sure to list exactly how much I used.
