You guys! Tardis socks!
But first: The next Special Order date is this Thursday, 10th October, so if you wanted some Brown Sheep yarn to knit, say, some Tardis socks (keep reading!), or a Dr Who scarf for a Christmas present (Nature Spun Sport or Worsted is dyed in the same colours), now is the time to order – I’m expecting the yarn to be with you week beginning 18th November at the latest.
Non-Doctor Who related orders are of course allowed too! This is the second to last order of the year – the last one will be in November, to arrive in the New Year, for those who are extraordinarily organised with their stitching plans!
Yep, I’m knitting some for a friend who is dedicated Whovian. I’ll be making a new chart from the existing ones out there (none of the windows seem quite right to me!), and posting it on the blog. I’ll be using the Surfboard Blue Wildfoote sock yarn, with some Vanilla and Black Orchid.
Care to join me? As only a little black and white yarn is needed, I’m happy to split skeins of the Vanilla and Black Orchid. Put one skein of Master Grey (a coincidentally named colour so appropriate it’s a little freaky) into your cart along with your skeins of Surfboard Blue, and leave a comment when you check out that you’d like half a ball each of black and white for Tardis socks (if you forget don’t worry, I’ll work it out, and double-check with you!).
You’re on your own as far as the pattern itself goes, but there are several free ones on Ravelry, and I’ll be posting the ‘recipe’ for the ones that I’m making. If there are several of us knitting them, perhaps we could do a knit-a-long?
