Tardis Socks

September 4, 2012

Laura’s Blog Entry

Done! Just in time for the “Doctor Who,” Series Seven premiere this past Saturday. And what a doozy that premiere was, too!

In case you are living under a rock, like I was until last fall, on “Doctor Who,” The Doctor travels in a time machine called a T.A.R.D.I.S., which is an abbreviation for Time And Relative Dimension In Space. And it is styled – on the outside – to look like a British police call box. You know. So it blends in everywhere it lands. Or transports to. Or whatever you call arriving via time machine.

Mari is now a huge Whovian. Never before has a TV show pushed all the buttons of a 14-year-old girl. Combine a galactic adventure with friendship and science, add a heart-wrenching love affair and you’ve got a hit. With nary a vampire in sight!

So of course she needs some socks to properly display her geeky fangirl status.

Knitting Stats:

Pattern
TARDIS Socks by Keladry Bonnett

I did some modification to adjust the size as well as a different technique to achieve the gridded panels. Here’s a link to my Ravelry project page with notes on changes.

Yarn
Main Color: Knit Picks Stroll Solids, Heathers and Twists in Sapphire Heather, #22843 I love this yarn! The color has so much depth to it. Such a pretty shade.

Black: Knit Picks Stroll Solids, Heathers and Twists

White: Filatura Di Crosa Zarina, #1401

Totally fun knit! Next up for her, perhaps some Dalak fingerless gloves. Head to toe in Who! That’s the goal!
