Knitting the Doctor Who Scarf

Ah, knitting the Doctor Who scarf. This is something I know a thing or two about by now…

Ah the Doctor Who scarf, made famous of course by the Fourth Doctor played by Tom Baker.

There are patterns readily available for free online (Just google it) and this particular story begins when a colleague was making one a few years ago. I thought it looked pretty simple, and therefore I thought I’d have a go; because my brother is a huge Doctor Who fan! I’d just started knitting at the time, and it really is a simple project.

April 2017 – This Month and Month Ahead

This Month is a new feature I had been planning to add in, in the new year, though it’s been a bit delayed. Joy of working full-time, and making things in between really.

I’ve been writing this blog for a few months now, slowly making it how I want, with some things still to knock into place so I’m getting there!

This Month
