    My oldest grandson and his girl friend are super Dr. Who fans....and my favorite Dr. Who being Tom Baker from way back in the day....I found a pattern for making a Tom Baker Dr. Who scarf.
    My youngest grandson is a big fan of RWBY some will know the video and some won't. Since the letters in the video title stand for Red, White, Black, Yellow I knitted him a scarf in those colors.

    When I first found the Dr. Who scarf pattern I bought all the yarn I would need for 3 scarves, got the scarves made then realized that one of the colors (beige) was way too light when compared to the scarf worn in the TV program.... so I had to wander through many yarn selling websites to find the color I wanted. Got that ordered, bought more of the other yarns and made 2 more scarves (turns our my youngest grandson was not a Dr. Who fan). So it turned out that I made 5 Dr Who scarves overall. Two went to grandson and his girl friend and the other 3 went to the Women's Shelter with a photo of Tom Baker wearing it as Dr. Who just in case they didn't realize what it was.
    And in case that seems like an easy and quick project, the Dr. Who scarves are 22 feet long and about 15 inches wide. The typical winter scarf is 4-6 feet long and about 6-8 inches wide.

    Thanks Eileen and Sjoerd, the Dr. Who scarves were a joy to get finished...except for having all those loose ends to weave in. But the kids loved them and even though we had a really warm Christmas day last year they wore them all day.....inside under the air conditioning that is.;)

    Hmmmm, how do I explain this ..... Dr. Who is a Time Lord who travels all over the universe and his adventures are many.
    It is a British TV program that began in 1963 and is still running with new episodes even to this day. Each Dr. Who has their own personality and quirks, when each comes to the end of their life they do not die, they regenerate and a new actor takes over the part. That's why they have been on air 50+ years. My favorite Dr. Who #4 (played by Tom Baker)
    Our local PBS station here in Dallas, KERA channel 13, was the first station in the U.S. to broadcast the programs.
