Mid Project Distractions

Yesterday, I posted the Doctor Who Scarf I am working on. Today, I got a text from my sister-in-law asking if I could make her a hat and scarf in Bronco colors in time for her to wear them on the 12th of this month. So this is what I am working on right now and I almost forgot to make a post today! Pictures will be forthcoming when I'm done.

WIP Wednesday: Tom Baker Scarf

Aka, The Fourth Doctor Scarf. Also, a sneak peak of my finished yarn bowl in action --I'll post bigger pics on Friday of the finished bowl.

I got the yarn online, which I do not recommend unless you are using the exact recommended yarn brands and colorways from the pattern. I am also using sock yarn instead of worsted weight, so it won't be quite as ridiculously humongous --especially since my 12-year-old daughter has claimed ownership. If I even make another one, I guess I'll either use the yarns they recommend, or find the colors in person. It's just straight knitting with a slipped stitch at the end of each row, so it's great to do while catching up on my DVR queue.
