Doctor Who Scarf

Yes, that’s me, wearing my awesome Doctor Who scarf!

I’ve wanted to make a Doctor Who scarf since I first saw the series, about 3 years ago, however all the patterns I’d seen used yarn that cost more than I was willing to spend.  That all changed a few months ago when I happened across Witty Little Knitter, a site “dedicated to the knitting of the authentic Doctor Who scarf.”  Run by Tara Wheeler, she provides several patterns for knitting the scarf, including one made from an affordable acrylic yarn.

I was delighted to find this pattern, and even more delighted when a friend purchased the yarn for me as a gift.  A few months later, and I’m the proud wearer of a ridiculously long, cozy warm, and delightfully geeky scarf.

Dragon Age 2 Cookies

Dragon Age 2 cookiesI just finished playing Dragon Age 2. Not to spoil anything, but sometimes I felt like it should have been called “Dragon Age: Sucks to Be You.” Or maybe that was just my play-through.

So, it cheered me up immensely to see all those beloved DA2 characters in gingerbread cookie form. Baked up by DeviantART user Lubyelfears, these tasty treats deliciously capture the likeness of the champion’s companions.

I can’t decide what I love more: Fenris’ frosting tattoos, the scowl on Aveline’s face, or the fact that Verric the dwarf is shorter and stouter than the rest of the cookies!

Exploding TARDIS Shoes

Man I wish I could draw. Then I could try to make these for myself! cakewalkqueen made a pair of Exploding TARDIS sneakers using sharpies! She based them on a pair she saw on Etsy that feature Van Gogh’s drawing of the TARDIS exploding from the Doctor Who episode “The Pandorica Opens”. One shoe says “The pandorica will open” on the outside and the other says “Silence will fall”.
