Just wanted to let the members here know the community of who_knits is up and running again. The comm had been deserted by its former owner and moderators (they deleted their LJs w/o bothering to pass the comm along to a new owner and mods). LJ had moderated the comm because of the lack of mods, so there were no posts, but that's all fixed now.

The comm can be found at

I'm looking to to make a charm bracelet with a charm for each Doctor, but am having problems coming up with an appropriate charm for some of them. So far I have
12 - guitar
11 - bow tie
10 - Converse
9 - banana
8 - pocket watch
7 - umbrella
6 - cat
5 - question mark
4 - scarf
3 - sports car
2 - looking for a recorder; anything else that would work?
1 - ???

Any suggestions for 1, 2, and the War Doctor? And suggestions for any of the others are welcome also :-)
(I do have some non-specific charms like the TARDIS, keys, hearts, sonic screwdrivers, Daleks, robots (for Cybermen), teapots, Big Ben, etc.)

Thanks in advance!

Hi folks!

It's Kim, Director of the Wardrobe Portal at TimeGate.

TimeGate is the Doctor Who and British Media convention in Atlanta, GA, USA, May 27-29th, 2016, at the Atlanta Marriott Century Center Hotel. The GoH is Paul McGann, the 8th Doctor. More info can be found here at the website:

https://timegatecon.org/

If you're attending, we have a panel on Friday just for knitters and related crafters. :) It's at 8 PM. Panels last 50 minutes.

Who Knits

The panel needs a couple more knitters. If you knit Four/Rose/Amy scarves, and want to show off your work, you're needed. :) Also, if you knit/tat/crotchet Who'verse items, please apply. Applicants need to describe their items/projects briefly.


My rules for panelists are easy common sense. :) Please be on time, be kind to other panelists, and answer politely when taking questions from audience members. Panels end at 10 minutes before the hour, as the Costume track shares space with the Lit track. If an attendee comes up to the table afterward to ask questions of you, please be kind but have them walk with you out to the hallway for more chatting ASAP.

Please forgive the lateness of this request, due to laptop woes, but I do need firm commitments by April 29th for this panel. I can *add* panelists after that, but your name won't be in the TG program book or on the TG program site.

Please reply here in the thread or send me a PM.

So I'm beginning to stitch another BAP. I just have to do it, since my last two BAPs have been so popular worldwide, not only on Live Journal but on DeviantArt too.

I've gobsmacked so many fans the past weekend at the "Science of the Timelords" event at the National Space Centre, Leicester that I decided to make a start on this one.

This one measures 32 x 23.1" on 14ct, have approximately 142,000 stitches and will use 50 different shades of Anchor.

The design is the promo picture used to promote the 9th Doctor and Rose on billboards in 2005.

Another two years undertaking I fear.

I've only got a bit left to do on my cross stitch of the 11th Doctor Matt Smith. Yes I know it's taken ages to stitch BUT I'll promise before the end of July he'll be posted.

I've stitched it on baby pink 14ct aida, unusual but it works as the design is in sepia tones and I've got no idea why the Anchor shade 1080 has lightened but it has caused shadows.

Speak to you all again sometime between now and the end of July.

TARDIS giftCollapse )

I made this for a friend a couple of years ago. It took me awhile to send it to him. He loves it. Please forgive that Thorin is in the pix.

I've been invited to a party with the theme "Holidaze in Spacetime" and immediately thought of doing a Christmas-themed Tom Baker scarf, using the half-scale patterns from Illuminated Spaces. A Season 18 scarf lends itself nicely to a red/white/green palette, having only three colors to begin with, but I'm not sure it would be as immediately recognizable for what it's meant to be. I tried converting the Season 12 scarf to a five color palette (red/white/green/silver/gold), but I'm not as happy with it.

My options as I see it:

  1. Make the S18 pattern and hope it's more obvious than I think.
  2. Add two more colors to the S12 pattern.


Thoughts? Recommendations for what colors to add if I go with Option 2?

My daughter K went to her first convention this summer.  She wanted to be Clara in the Journey to the Center of the Tardis.  Not an easy dress to find. So we decided to make one.
