Dalek MIttens!  
Me standing with a real dalek from 1988 (at the EMP in Seattle), wearing my home made, knitted dalek mittens! It's hard to see here, but the mittens have little white bobbles on top! Needless to say, I was pretty pumped.

I was kind of sad that that's the only Doctor Who related thing they had at EMP besides the gift shop. But those are adorable!

Thanks!
I actually got a tour from the curator of the Icons exhibit (friend of family) and asked him why they didn't have more. He said they pretty much had to wait for people to volunteer the loan of their stuff and DW fans just weren't putting their hands up! They do have some more stuff lined up though and intend to change the contents out often. Hopefully they'll be more DW stuff soon.

Love the mittens!

The new Icons of Science Fiction exhibit. It's amazing! They have a huge range of stuff, including a real live dalek from the 1988 episode "Remembrance of the Daleks". I really wanted to go inside and drive it around a little, but surprisingly, they don't let you do that :P

"Me standing with a real dalek..."
A real dalek!? OMG, RUN!!

Sorry, that was just the first thing that popped into my head before I was even done reading the sentence. ;)

Like the mittens!

Ah, I just noticed that you didn't exactly share it. But thanks for making it available!

Those are fantastic. I may just have to make some for my son for Christmas... :-)
