The first knitting project I decided to tackle was the 4th Doctor’s scarf from Doctor Who. While it’s just knitting and purling, it was a lofty project. My, now, husband and I met during a Mile High Who event. It was just fitting that one of the first gifts I let him borrow (silly knitting superstition) be something from the show.
My dear friend, Katie, helped me get everything that I needed. She had already made a 4th Doctor scarf so she was extremely helpful with colors.
I ended up taking the project with me to several states. Surprisingly enough, knitting needles are not a concern when it comes to USA TSA.
Having never knit anything before it was quite exciting to watch the piece grow. I slowly learned how to maintain consistent tension as well as the ‘joy’ of weaving in the ends.
I successfully finished the scarf in time for Christmas. I think my sweet kitty was the saddest to see that she could no longer use it as a bed. If she’s nice enough August will allow her to snuggle up with it again.
And here he is with the borrowed scarf! It was a perfect addition to the Denver’s Museum of Nature and Science night of Mythical Creatures.
