Journey’s End

The project:  An Authentic Doctor Who Scarf

Started: September 8, 2011

Completed: Octobr 7, 2011 at approximately 4:25 pm

Finished Measurements: Pre-blocking – 10.5 inches wide by 10 feet long (11 feet 3 inches with fringe).  I did not block, knowing full well that the sheer weight of the fiber will stretch the scarf out over time.

There was a real push in the end to complete the finishing process.  Took several hours to weave in the little ends (which I really really wish I had worked in while I knit) and then add the fringe.  In the end, however, I used far less yarn than I expected.

Yarn: Lamb’s Pride Superwash Worsted in Mysterious Fuschia, Wild Honey, Oats ‘n Cream, Red Baron, Cactus, and Charcoal Heather.  When the last color – Pecan Toffee, turned out to be back-ordered, I instead subbed Cascade 220 Superwash Worsted (I can’t find the ball band, sorry)

Invaluable Reource: doctorwhoscarf.com

I am totally in love, and I hope the recipient is too.  I will send you photos of his complete costume.  He owes me one.

Part of me wants to make a second one.  I may not have escaped with my sanity intact….

    LOVE this! And I have at least two friends who would go bonkers over it, too…. Can you post this to FB or can I, so they can see?
