I thought maybe it would be a good idea to mention I’m getting pets soon but not everybody likes them so;

Sometime in the near future I’ll almost certainly be posting some photos of soon to arrive rats

If anybody would like to avoid this (I won’t spam or post about anything yucky I promise) I will be tagging them with “rats” and “rodents”

Doctor Who Scarf Snag.

Has anyone knitted a Doctor Who Scarf before?

I’m struggling to find all the colours needed.

This is the colour I most need. I can’t continue without it and I’ve been practically to ever store that I know that sells yarn, in several different towns and cities. D: however I need either acrylic or merino wool as I am allergic to the regular. Just about all my wool is acrylic I think. 

Thanks!

What brand have you been using? I remember something about Knit Picks having most of them in one of their worsted wool lines. 

I used www.doctorwhoscarf.com/s12.html to plan out everything for mine - near the bottom of that page are loads of yarn recommendations in various weights and materials including some acrylic options!

It is a tiny nature book, now when I spot some nature I can look it up myself! There are 80 bird, mammal, creepy crawly and plant to look at.

(Pictures are from some of Wildlife Watch’s spotting sheets, printed tiny and bound in a book)

I hit a few snags in the process of printing the tiny pages so I actually have a second set of pages that are all slightly offset, so maybe sometime I’ll bind them and give that away

A whole lot of sewing completed, it’s really just a little detail on the wings before I sew them on and he’s done! I’m really proud of the eyes, I wanted them to be 3D but still soft, so they’re needle felted from dyed wool
I also decided I wanted the second movie tail so improvised the applique shape which went pretty well too

The tutorial I used is from nooby-banana on deviantart, aside from the claws which I simplified to a curvy triangle (it gives nearly as good a shape and with much less hassle, only one piece to cut and one seam to sew per claw)

Need to find some other fabric for the claws (i’m hoping there’s something good in the stacks of fabric stores currently in this house) but for now Toothless is a odd looking pile of legs and bits
If it turns out I don’t have anything suitable he’ll stay that way until I can get out and find some

(Once again see nooby-banana on deviantart for the tutorial i’m following)
