If you’re a Whovian, yesterday was a big day. Ok, understatement, it was a huge day! Rumors had been spreading for months, only recently confirmed in June I think, that Matt Smith would be stepping down from his role. Throw in some wild speculation, betting, and now we have our twelfth doctor!
Ok, I have to admit, this is where I deviate from most Whovians. I didn’t really care who played the Doctor, as long as it wasn’t that guy from Sherlock who plays Moriarti (that voice!). I was just really enjoying the speculation and intrigue. I loved not knowing! Now, it’s all gone. Sad day. The doctor has been named. Now we wait for the eleventh to day and the twelfth to be generated.
Anyway, this does have a knitting point. In honor of this momentous weekend, I worked on my brother’s scarf. As you can see in the photo above (please pretend you don’t see the mess), it’s huge! Somewhere deep inside, I knew this was going to be an epic undertaking, but I’m only just starting to grasp the scope of it. I’m just past the halfway point. This is going to be some scarf in the end, and I’m fairly certain this will be my first and very last garter stitch scarf. To friends and family who also wanted this scarf … I’ll teach you to knit.
What projects did you work on this weekend? Whovians: How was Sunday’s announcement for you?
