I am Number 4, part 2

I know, I’m a bad knitting blogger that hasn’t blogged in quite a while. I’ve been pretty slow about knitting lately and trying to work on one project at a time and haven’t been taking too many photos because a lot of them are prototypes. Also, one of the projects is the secret project. Yes, I’m still working on the secret project.

One project that I did finish somewhat recently is my Doctor Who 4th Doctor scarf for my Halloween costume. It was a ton of work but was totally worth it in the end.

Currently, I’m working mainly on a scarf for my aunt for a holiday gift (I’ll post pictures after it’s finished and blocked). I’m also spending some time on the secret project but will post a pic when that’s done.

Well, I know it’s a short post, but that’s all for now.

I am number four

I know, I know, I’m a bad blogger for not having updated in quite a while. I promise, I have been working on a few fun projects, but I can’t show you the one because it’s a secret.

So what have I been up to since the last post:

  • Lots of work
  • Trip to Disney World (first time!)
  • Secret fiber project
  • Halloween costume scarf

Work has been keeping me quite busy lately. I don’t mind being busy at work. I like my job a lot and I’m the type of person who would much rather be busy than be bored. There is only so much interesting internet that one can look at.

After making his yearly pilgrimages to the cartoon holy land, the partner finally convinced me to go along. I loved it and am really looking forward to going back at some point. I had way more fun than I could have imagined. Despite doing a lot while we were there, it was still really relaxing.

The secret fiber project is secret. Duh.

Even though I enjoyed the movie and really like the books (I’m working on the third now), the post title of “I am number four” is actually a play on words. I have been threatening for a while to make a 4th Doctor scarf from Doctor Who. For those who don’t know, Doctor Who is a British scifi show that was started in the early 1960s and ran through the late 1980s and then was rebooted in 2005. So now that I am going to dress up as the 4th Doctor for Halloween this year, I had an excuse to make the scarf. My colors are slightly off, but I’m happy with how it’s turning out. I’m using a pattern for the 13th season scarf from wittylittleknitter.com.

Season 13 Fourth Doctor scarf as of 10/07/12

I’m a little picky, so after the first few color changes, I switched how I did it so they’re ┬ámore invisible. Time and remaining yarn permitting, I might go ahead with the season 12.5 scarf because the pattern is the same as the season 13 with a few more stripes (looks like about a foot) at the end.
