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!
I’m sure there must be a doctor around here somewhere? How do I know? Well, he keeps leaving his scarf lying around the place. That’s one clue!
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
