TARDIS Scarf Completed!

I got it finished! And it’s on its way to Australia (lucky scarf!). I had a lot of fun making it. The chart was perfect and it turned out exactly like we wanted.

TARDIS Scarf Update

I’m plugging away at the TARDIS scarf I have on the needles. After I finish this post, I’m turning off my computer and working on it all night.

I finished up the TARDIS portion of the scarf. Now I just have to work on the middle part. It’s just a seed stitch border and stocking stitch in between. It’s quite wide, which is just the way she wanted it. The pattern portion was a bit of a challenge because it was upside down. But I got through it and I think it looks fabulous!

How I Became a Whovian/Bigger on the Inside Scarf

This is THE reason why I became a Whovian.

I had a friend ask me if I could make a scarf for a family member. She requested a TARDIS design. I had no idea what the heck a TARDIS was. Well, I had to find out.

When I make something based on a show, character, movie etc., I like to know what I’m working with. For example, I really don’t know if my Minion hats would have been as popular as they were if I hadn’t have watched (and LOVED) Despicable Me. I did my best to capture their essence and I think I was successful. I wanted to do the same with this scarf.

I did have a look around for patterns before I watched the show. It was all so foreign to me. We did find a pattern for a shawl that she liked. She asked me if I could make it into a scarf. I said I would do my best. I have it on the needles now and I think it’s going to be a success. I’m almost finished the TARDIS portion. Once it is done, I will send photos to my friend and I will then post my progress here. I have to say I’m pretty excited about this!

For those who are curious about the shawl pattern I’m basing it on, you can find Bigger on the Outside here.

And that, my friends, is how I became a Whovian.

I’ve really gotta stay out of stores with yarn…

So I had some time to kill…

Yeah, that’s always when it happens! Lol I was up in Haliburton for an appointment. Mom wanted me to print off some pictures while I was up there. I had to wait 20 mins. So I wandered down to Jan Knit’s Studio…

Oh my goodness! The yarn that she has is BEAUTIFUL! She was so friendly too. She was showing me how to knit beads into a scarf. We had a nice little chat. I think that may become a hangout when I start school 😉

I hopped into V&S and picked up another ball of sock yarn. I saw some new Boa yarn too, which really excites me! I also got some more fabric for another batch of RSD Awareness Quilt patches.

Right now I’m still repairing that sweater. I have recently discovered that I need colour. I don’t enjoy working with black at all. That’s going to be phased out!

Better git ‘r done… So I can rip into my new yarn! Lol
