Who s13 scarf and fringe

As I was working on my Doctor Who scarf site, I realized I had no photos of my Season 13 scarf. As it turned out, I did complete that scarf but it was during Hurricane Isaac and I was a tad busy then. That is also when I received my knitted scarf so I neglected to post photos of the season 13 scarf. So here are catching up photos.

Finished size of this scarf is 7 1/2" x 95" without fringe. It was completed in September.

Since this is so long ago, I don't remember which pattern I used, but I had a tag on it which said I used an I hook and chained 26.

Colors used:
Purple = Vanna’s Choice Burgundy
Camel = I Love This Yarn light taupe
Mustard = Bernat Waverly Gypsy Gold
Rust = I Love This Yarn Terra Cotta
Grey = Vanna’s Choice Taupe
Greenish Brown = Bernat Waverly Bark
Bronze = Vanna’s Choice Toffee

Then I put some fringe on existing scarves which were given to family members who are big Who fans. I have mentioned previously that I don't put fringe on my own scarves because I don't care for it. What I didn't know is that I am not actually fond of making fringe, particularly with multiple strands. LOL Well, something learned this week! But this fringe was made with love and I hope the recipients will enjoy their scarves.

I added some photos of Who earrings I've gotten and tweaked a bit on the scarf site. If you need more Who, visit Gallifreyan Crochetin'. I in no way try to compete with any of the existing sites. This is mainly a place to put my own experiences up and highlight my stuff. Just as when I began Crochet Cabana, I often need a reference so I can remember what I did previously. This site is that memory aid for making scarves.

I don't include any patterns there. That's been done quite well by other sites. Since the scarf is a tangible thing which can be seen on any of the fourth Doctor's episodes, viewers can make educated guesses about colors and row counts of the knitted scarves. UNLESS you are one of the fortunate few who have seen the actual scarves. I bow to their expertise.

Happy crocheting!

Things should have slowed down now that the new site is up, right? heh That hasn't been the case, but most of it is not to do with the site. As far as I'm aware, things are working smoothly there. If you run into any problems, holler out to me so I can correct them. There are still a few things that need to be done, like photos on the dictionary pages. That will be done in time. I also hope to do more videos soon.

In the meantime, on my hook this week... more cross-stitch squares. This time for a lapghan for a cancer patient, friend of a friend.

Here is the finished piece. It is about 44" square, using 36 six inch squares and joined with the continuous join. Yarn is whatever I had in my stash. The red is I Love This Yarn red. The medium blue is Red Heart Delft Blue.  I think the grey is also I Love This Yarn. There is some Vanna's Choice in there as well. I think the light tan is either Annie's Choice or Impeccable. The assembly is Red Heart Super Saver Aran.

I am really pleased with the way it all came together.

Happy crocheting!
