The DH and I never really watched Dr. Who regularly, but somehow we got hooked on it during a (bitterly) cold spell in December. Rumor has it that whoever is "The Doctor" when you start watching the show will forever be "The Doctor" for you. DH watched Dr. Who back when Tom Baker was The Doctor, hence . . .
I started this scarf for the DH's birthday before Christmas. It's only 50 stitches across, all in garter stitch. That is, knit every stitch. For twelve feet! That's 366 cm for you clever people who use metric!
I haven't added the fringe, and don't know if I will. It's not really a practical garment, being so long it has to be wrapped twice around the neck. I can just see this thing getting caught in an elevator door and making me a young widow!
I used the pattern from Witty Little Knitter, here. The yarn is Cascade 220 Superwash -- my thinking being that if there was yarn left over, I could use it for Hats for Sailors.

Except for the beard, don't you think DH looks a lot like The Doctor?
