Ken's Scarf day 7

Today was a strange day.  I got knitting10/7 done, but just seemed like I was spinning my wheels most of the day.

Maybe it was just the over the halfway done blues.

I mostly knitted around the house today, read my iPhone eBook, watched some TV (Mythbusters).

Did sneak out to a knitting meeting, but came home early.

Just a boring day, I guess.

 

Tonight's stats are:

Total knitting time: 27 hours

Time spent knitting today: 5 hours

Total length: 61"

Length knitted today: 11.5"

31 out of 44 stripes

Finished 4 out of 15 skeins of yarn

Ken's Scarf day 6

Today the DH and I got back into At the coffee shopour usual routine.

We went to a local coffee shop so he could write (with some noise and bustle in the background) and I could read and knit.

I got about two and a half hours of knitting done there today, while I read 'Small Favor' by Jim Butcher on my iPhone (the little blue rectangle in front of my hands- being held up by a Naja stand).

I've read this book before, but I'm re-reading it so I can read his new book 'Turn Coat'.

The DH worked on cards for a talk he's giving in Baltimore.

Then we went home and had dinner.

The evening's real entertainment was to go see Toy Story 1&2 in 3D!

Of course I took my knitting and knitted all through Toy Story 1.

But I ran out of yarn and didn't have another skein of red with me.

Ken's Scarf day 4

Today was day two of the Taos Wool Fest.  I did actually manage to sit down and knit.

I had a great time, saw lots of lovely animals, bought even more fiber for me to spin.

And knitted about six inches on Ken's Scarf.

But that evening was when the real fun started.

I took Ken's Scarf to a bar!

And not just any bar!  I took Ken's Scarf to the Alley Cantina!

Elizabeth&Omar

 I knitted while the lovely Elisabeth Jose sang and the 'Omar-licious' Omar Rane played jazz standards.

I got about five inches knitted in the bar

Now, I should tell you that the Alley Cantina has quite a past.

It's the oldest structure in the town of Taos (the Taos Pueblo is outside the city limits).

At least two walls are around 400 years old.

Ken's Scarf day 3

Hi y'all!

I am ashamed to say that I didn't get all that much done on Ken's Scarf today.

I was having way too much fun at the Taos Wool Fest.

I did manage to get about 5.5 inches knitted when I was actually sitting down. Most of the rest of the day 10/3was spent looking at yarn, fiber for spinning into yarn (I bought a few ounces of a merino wool/ silk blend in a beautiful TARDIS blue), fiber processing tools, sheepskin hats, coats, slippers, dyes, spinning wheels, looms, patterns, finished wool garments, rugs, blankets, oh, and sheep.

I had some fabulous lamb ribs for lunch and ate three (3) fantastic homemade hard cider cupcakes brought by a fellow Ravelry knitter.

Tomorrow will be more productive.

Tonight's stats:

7 hours into the Scarf.

Total length; 17.5"

The new animated Doctor Who story Dreamland (starring David Tennant and Georgia Moffett) does not have a premiere date yet. We are still waiting. Should be soon. Reports are now saying that this story is set between The Waters Of Mars and the 2 part finale, so soon could be more November/December.

Ken's Scarf Day 2

Cast OnWell, here I am in wonderful Taos.

It's been a very busy day for me and the DH.

I didn't sleep very well, so I got up early and logged Ken's Scarf into Ravelry.com as my current project.  I got everything out, went to YouTube and loaded 'Robot' and cast on 65 stitches for Ken's Scarf.

I knitted for a while in Santa Fe and then we hit the road for Albuquerque.

By the time we got to Albuquerque, I'd knitted about 3.5 inches, so I went ahead and put the fringe on.

Scarves really don't look right until they've got some fringe on.

Ken's Scarf

Howdy y'all!

A few of y'all have heard that Ken Deep's lovely wife hired me to knit him a Doctor Who Scarf for Christmas.

He's been all excited about going to Chicago TARDIS and he got special dispensation to get his Christmas present early so he could show it off there.

So, Ken's Scarf will be the Thirteenth Doctor Who Scarf i've knitted this year (don't blame me, he said he wanted #13).

It's Thursday night.  I'm in Santa Fe, New Mexico, on my way to the Taos Wool Festival.

Another Reason to Avoid Flying Buses in Doctor Who

I have no idea why, but wired.com had this video on their site today. It features David Tennant and Russell T Davies at San Diego Comic Con talking about Doctor Who and in particular some of the difficulties they had with the bus in the then most recent special, Planet of the Dead.

The 4th Doctor's Return - A fan's reaction

 

For many Doctor Who fans, especially those of a certain age (and it still upsets me that I can now use that phrase about myself!), the biggest news of the summer - with the exception of the first pictures of the 11th Doctor - has been the return of Tom Baker to the role that made him a national institution and an icon all over the world. Yes, the 4th Doctor is back - in a 5 part audio adventure called Hornet's Nest from BBC Audio. It's been almost 30 years since the 4th Doctor had a new adventure. 30 years since those wonderful warm and throaty tones have been part of a new Doctor Who story.
