Hey all... been working on this project for just under 2 months and finally finished it up last Thursday! Woot! This thing is monstrous! But... um... we'll let the pictures speak for themselves ^_^

The unassuming scarf basking in its own glory... or is it? Could it just be waiting for some poor unsuspecting victim to claim?

Nooooooo! It's taken my son and nearly swallowed him whole!

So, of course I had to take matters in my own hands and save my son from the monstrous-sized scarf!

But my plans went awry and it got me, too!

Soon a friend came to help! But... it didn't seem like he was able to help too much for he soon got tangled in it's tentacles, too!

But he finally tamed the beast and knocked it into submission.

The scarf liked him so much, it followed him home. Phew! No more having to contend with the infamous Dr. Who scarf ^_^

Yarn: 7 skeins of I Love This Yarn brand in 7 colors
Needles: size 8 (5.0mm)
Finished size: 10'10" (including fringe) and 12" wide- I was so happy that this came out to the correct size!
Number of stitches: 57,365; 1043 rows (includes bind-off row) x 55 stitches
Time: Just under 2 months; approximately 3-5 hours/night - This was approximately: The entire series of Scrubs, Lie to Me, Season 2 of Glee, Season 5 of Dr. Who, a couple of random movies, half of 10 Things I Hate About You (tv show), Season 1 of Numb3rs, and some other shows that I know I watched during this endeavor!

Thanks for looking!

Oh wow. That is such an amazing scarf and the colours look pretty accurate too. Tom Baker is the doctor I grew up with so he has a special place in my heart.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

2 months is superfast for this scarf!
When I made mine it took much longer, I think the garter stitch put me to sleep a few times.

You did a fantastic job! Well done Grin

Nice work! So, how many ounces do those 7 skeins add up to? I am thinking of using up some leftovers for a scarf.
