I’ve posted before about the project of making a 4th Doctor long scarf (The Long, Long Scarf, Part 2 and Part 3). I remember seeing a comparison chart for the various incarnations of the Doctor’s scarf so you can see the various lengths and stripe differences. I can’t find that exact thing now, but in the process I did trip over this handy little tool to help you track the progress of your own scarf project, and this page accomplishes precisely the same thing I wanted.
I’ve almost run out of steam on my “inspired by” scarf project. This is the scarf that doesn’t conform to any official pattern and has lots of mistakes in it, as it’s what I’ve been learning how to knit upon. One thing I have learned is that the typical 60- or 66-stitch widths are way too wide for my liking. When I do my special scarf, it will have the right stripes and length but perhaps half or two thirds the width.
Here again are links to what look to me to be the two most useful sites about making the long, long scarf:
Cola Johnson did this one and I am mightily impressed. Click for lots of images and details on how it was done. She also set up Spoonflower patterns for both the police box sign and the pull-to-open sign so that the fonts, kerning, etc. would be right. These are now available for your own project, should you need them.
lostgirls97‘s uncle built this TARDIS for use out and about around Minneapolis. This is probably the best TARDIS in the wild I’ve ever seen a picture of.
I am assuming the spoon and cherry are behind it rather than somehow emanating from it. Although that would be cool too.
Wow this looks fun! A couple pics below, follow link for more, plus descriptions of the pieces.
I schedule my posts in advance, but RJ Williams is innovating so fast, he’s shorting out my posting cycle. No sooner do I post his 2.0 version quilt than he’s letting me know about version 3.0.
Yes, I made an even bigger one this time! Check it out, and let me now what you think. This one has the exploding Tardis, all the sonic screwdrivers, two 8-bit hearts, and more! Again, love the site!
That’s very nice (and thank you!) because I love the quilt. Now I have to have one for Christmas. Please? Please? Pretty please? Or a deal? The family member who gets me this gets gets gripe-free favors and chores for a year. Whaddya say?
