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?
