Bringing Sexy Back

As I write this, the Scot is padding about the room whining. He can’t find a spot to bury his toy bone. By the time I finish this post, this will probably be a major international incident…

But in the meantime, I’ve been Doctor Who knitting again! This is a project I’ve been wanting to start for positively ages. I bought the pattern back at Knit Nation 2011 (eep) from One Hand Knits. It is, of course, the pattern for T.A.R.D.I.Socks. I went a little ninja at the Knit Nation market place because I only had a limited amount of time. This is one of the patterns I had on my ninja list.

Of course, having obtained the pattern, I was then on the hunt for the perfect yarn. I actually didn’t want to go too blue. I wanted something more of a tenth doctor T.A.R.D.I.S. Thankfully, Knitsch had ‘Deep Thought’ and on the confirmation of a certain enabling friend, I went ahead and bought my yarn.

And then things got busy. Drat.

But last night, I was tired and wanted something simple I could just follow and I really, really wanted to start these socks. So I did.

“What do you call me? Sexy.”

I already love these socks! The yarn is perfect – it is beyond perfect! The cabling goes all lovely and squishy and the semi-solid works those purled backgrounds. It looks dynamic. I went down a needle size, as I usually end up doing, and it’s fitting perfectly. I’m not going to kid myself though. This is a long term project. I’m just going to enjoy the ride.

It’s been cold and windy, so I also decided to break out my 1940s toaster and make toast.

That’s right. This is how a 1940s toaster TOASTS.

Wow! It takes seconds. This is full-on toast. And oddly more delicious than boring old regular toast from a 21st century pop-up toaster (which takes forever and never toasts evenly – I’m absolutely converted).

Now this is toast.

Okay, the Scot is on the horn to Switzerland. I’d best be going. I’m sure there’s an old towel that can serve as a hiding place…

  1. Wow! That sock looks perfect in the yarn! So awesome!!! Like the fingernails too.

    And your toaster reminds me of cybermen and daleks. In a good way. How awesomely nifty! 🙂
