Dr Who Cross Stitch

I like the bit when someone says it’s bigger on the inside! I always look forward to that.

This is the creation of Crafty TARDIS/livejournal member Xcarex. I love it.

If you’re not plugged into Crafty TARDIS you should be! I love the charming honesty of this cross stitch, the way the TARDIS seems to be shining with all those dotted lines, and the care and attention taken over the different shades of blue.

Wibbly Wobbly, Timey Wimey

Wibbly Wobbly, Timey WimeyThis Doctor Who inspired cowl was designed by Ravelry user Rachel Henry.  It’s made with a Knit Picks self striping yarn, in the Time Traveler colorway, which is unfortunately no longer available on the Knit Picks site.  The colors are a pastel version of the iconic Doctor Who scarf worn by the fourth Doctor.

The cowl pictured here is one I knit for myself.  I ordered the yarn right after seeing the pattern, and knit it for myself as a treat when I finished all my Christmas knitting.

Kirby Plushie

Kirby Plushie I made this adorable Kirby plushie for a friend a few months ago.  After spending several days scouring the internet for a good knitting pattern for a ball, I came across this Kirby pattern on Ravelry.  I altered it slightly, using my own design for the feet, and making the eyes and mouth with felt, that I then glued on with a hot glue gun rather than knitting them as seen in the pattern.

It only took about three days to make, and I had a lot of fun knitting Kirby.
