As promised, here’s what I made for the Doctor Who Swap on Craftster I participated in:

Photobucket

Pattern: TARDIS socks
Yarn: Lion Brand Sock Ease and some white and black scraps
Needles: US 1/2.25mm
Modifications: Well, they’re mitts and not socks soo….

I’m pretty chuffed with how they came out. They were a bit large for my hands, but I have small hands.

I made this zipper pouch, the fabric of which you will recognize from the drawstring bag I made myself.

This drawing of the Doctor’s name from his cot in “A Good Man Goes to War” (the second part; can’t remember what that one’s called). I actually traced it from my computer screen, though I did sketch it out more fully on my own.

I painted a notebook to look like River’s spoiler journal and coated it with mod podge. I drew this on the inside front cover:

Photobucket

It says “Spoilers” in circular Galifreyan. I love it.

I also made a card, but I don’t have a picture of it. I signed my name in circular Galifreyan thought. : ) My package should arrive sometime next week (excite) and I will definitely show that off.

Next time: What I received in the yarnies vs. hoopers swap. Because it’s awesome.

Greetings, blog folk! I am mostly settled in, though things are still kind of a mess. Anyway, I’ve finished up some socks. Some delightful Who-inspired socks. Whoo!

Photobucket

Pattern: TARDIS Socks
Yarn: Lion Brand Sock-Ease in Snowcone, overdyed by a WWFYer, recycled wool/nylon (white) and Sanguine Gryphon Bugga (black)
Needles: US 1/2.25 mm
Mods: I continued to reduce gusset stitches until I was at a 64st foot instead of 72.

Photobucket

You guys. These socks. SO MUCH FUN. There was colorwork, which I don’t usually do so that was good practice. There was a flap and gusset heel, which I love. There was leg patterning. And there was easy cruising down the foot. Also, the fit is PERFECT. I went down to 64 sts for the foot and it fits just right. The 72 st leg is wide enough to get over my heel despite some snug stranding but tight enough to stay up.

TARDIS socks = love, is what I’m saying.

Photobucket

I wasn’t too crazy about the yarn, mostly because Sock-Ease is on the thin side. The color was perfect though. The white is not superwash but considering there’s not that much of it, I think it’ll be okay to go through the washing machine.

I have since cast on for about four more projects, one of which is super fast and I am halfway through. Also yesterday (Saturday) I went to a fiber event. But more on that next time.

I finished my Bigger on the Inside Shawl!

Photobucket

Pattern: Bigger on the Inside
Yarn: Lambswool/angora/nylon blend lace, recycled and dyed by someone in WWFY.
Needles: US 2
Mods: I knit as written though the proportions are a little wonky.

Photobucket

I think I did more decrease rows that increase rows so the top bit is kinda wonky. I love how it came out.

TARDIS!

I went down a bunch of needle sizes because the shawl calls for fingering weight and I used lace weight. The resulting shawl is still really airy and light. It’s a bit more like a scarf than a shawl, but I can still sling it around my shoulders when the AC is up too high.

Since finishing the TARDIS shawl, I’ve started sweater number six for the year, a tank top I’m designing for the Designer’s Challenge group on Ravelry. Still working on the vanilla socks (for which I’m going to do a crystal heel from the latest Knitty) and I’m almost done with the leg of the first one. The next socks in the queue are some TARDIS socks because I’m a huge nerd. I’m planning to make some fingerless mitts with the lace I used for Bigger on the Inside held doubled. I can be completely nerdy and matchy at the same time. Y’know, in six months when the weather is no longer a billion degrees.
