Doctor Who Scarf

I’ve been wanting to knit Tom Baker’s classic scarf ever since I learned there were doctors before Christopher Eccleston, but I wanted to do it right, and I couldn’t justify spending that much for yarn. Until recently, when a family friend commissioned one for her husband’s anniversary present. The pattern I followed can be found here.
 
 

“No, Seriously, One Skein” Circle Scarf Pattern

This is the once-beautiful skein of ultra-soft yarn that resided at the bottom of a yarn stash for an undetermined amount of time with no tag to indicate yardage, dye lot, company name, or anything else indicative of where to go to buy more, how long ago it was made, or how much there is. The last time I was in possession of such a hopeless tangled mess it was a skein of worsted I bought at Target when I was nine. I was knitting a pillow at the time so I just shredded it and used it for stuffing. But this is nice stuff.

Completion is a Pretty Nice Change

I actually finished my sweater. Here it is, free of loose ends and finally wearable.
 
I’m pretty proud of it. It’s not perfect, but I think I can look past its flaws and actually wear and enjoy it. Seven years ago, when I was just starting to knit, I would look at sweaters and think “I’ll never be able to make that”. So, to make a sweater from nothing but some scribbles I drew in a notebook (a sweater that I actually like), is pretty rewarding. 

And yes, my mannequin does lean slightly to the left. I know it’s unsettling, and I’ve tried to fix it. But hey, it’s a free mannequin I found in a closet. 

Weaving in Tails; Why is it so Daunting?

I was looking through my knitting corner of shame (previously the closet of failure), and found the sweater I was working on last Fall. I thought it would be half finished, but actually I did everything but weave in the tails. It has a neckline and everything, but I left it abandoned on top of socks without mates, halves of scarves, and a sock puppet of Mahna Mahna, rather than take the time to weave in the tails. I don’t know what is so daunting about the task of weaving in tails. Especially compared to the time I put into actually knitting the sweater. Now that I’ve found it, I feel obligated to finally finish it. 
Maybe I can wear it with the tails. Do you think anyone will think it’s a look I’m going for?

If you would like to make this pattern but you are not a sixteen year old girl (and as far as I know there there are only two teenage girls in the entire world that knit, one is my best friend, and the other is me), or my aunt (who is impressively small for an grown woman), I apologize. I’m not smart enough to make this pattern work in other sizes. I hope to be one day. Maybe you’re really smart yourself, and you know how math works. If that’s the case, would you be willing to make this pattern work in other sizes? I will send you a bouquet of button flowers. If there are any takers, let me know in the comments.
