"Doctor Who" scarf update
It's about time I post an update on a project I started a little while ago - a Doctor Who scarf, done for commission. It is going to be ~10 feet when all done, and today it broke the 7 foot mark.
This has taken maybe 5 hours so far, I wasn't really counting so i'd have to think it over, but its probably something like that. I usually watch a movie when im working on this, and i'm hoping the next time i put one on and work on it, it will finally be finished and given to its owner.
It is knit on 6.5mm needles, done in garter stitch like the original scarf. I used misc. acrylic yarn, all purchased at michaels. I chose to use acrylic so it would be less expensive for the person and also so it would be easier to take care of. If you need to wash it, just toss it in. When a scarf is this long, you really don't want to have to go through the whole handcare thing. Anyway, here is the photo i took for this. Its the scarf hanging over the door of my bedroom.
And, of course, here is a photograph of the original Tom Baker scarf, from which this scarf is inspired.
