New Year's Resolution #1: Dr Who Scarf
Today I ordered the yarn online. I did try to buy it from a couple of brick-and-mortar shops, but no go.
This particular version is the Season [Series] 13 scarf, and I'm going to make it with Brown Sheep Nature Spun in sport weight. That should result in a scarf that measures about 10 feet, give or take a few inches, what will varying gauge and blocking.
Yes, it's a vintage thing! Mind you, not nearly as vintage as my usual, or even (gasp!) as vintage as me, because although the series premiered in 1963, the scarf is associated primarily with Tom Baker, who debuted in 1974.
I am using a pattern provided by Tara at Witty Little Knitter
Wish me luck! It should make good standing in line or television knitting. (What a fabulous excuse for a Dr Who marathon!)
