My first “Dr Who” scarf of 2014

IMGP5576

Much like the one worn by the actor, Tom Baker, in the vintage TV series of Dr Who, here’s my first completed hand knitted Dr Who scarf of 2014.

I love knitting these over-long scarves.  It means you can get a real knitting hit whenever you need one.  I always have at least one scarf on the go.  Contrary to popular opinion (!) the stripes and colours are not simply random.  I follow the ‘official’  original BBC patterns as closely as possible.  I get a great sense of satisfaction each time I finish a scarf, sewing in the ends and attaching the rainbow tassels.  Then I find I miss the scarf and I have to start knitting the next one!

Here goes!

Dr Who on the loose in the village!

The keen eyed among you may have spotted The Doctor taking a walkabout in the cold, Easter weather this weekend.  Luckily he was well wrapped up against the elements in his super warm hand knitted scarf, currently on sale here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_sacat=See-All-Categories&_nkw=dr%20who%20scarf%20uk
