Wibbely-Wobbely-Timey-Wimey-Knitting

So, for the last month and a half or so, I've had a knitting project in the works.  I may have told you about it, I'm not sure.  Finally, today, I finished it.


Meet the TARDIS.  Now, you may be wondering what exactly this TARDIS is for.  Well, it's a cover for my Nook.  It's perfect, actually, because what is a Nook?  It's small, compact, and is bigger on the inside.  Just like the TARDIS.


Yesterday, I finished the ribbing on it, but because I need to be able to fit my Nook inside of it, I had to do a stretchy bind-off.  Not entirely sure how to do this, as I had started with Judy's Magic Cast-On loop (sorry about all this knitting technical jargon for those of you who don't speak it,) I popped over to the neighborhood knitting store today, and had them help me finish it up.  The best part of that experience?  The first woman I asked, who immediately recognized it as the TARDIS, and who talked about Doctor Who with me for a couple of minutes.

(Sorry this one's sideways--  I couldn't get it to go the other way.  *shrugs* )

Isn't it cool?  I had tons of fun knitting it, and I managed to get by with only a few hiccups in the work.  It was the first Doctor Who themed knitting project I've tried, and I was very pleased with the outcome.  I spent ages scrolling through Ravelry trying to find the perfect project, and I finally found it, something easy, but with colorwork, which I had been wanting to try.  

So, what do you guys think?  Do any of you knit or crotchet?
