Any fans of the BBC show, Dr. Who, out there? My daughter loves this show and has been trying to get me to watch it forever. Well, for at least a year. Finally, over this past college break I watched the last two seasons with her....and I am now hooked! Thinking back, I have always been a fan of Sci-Fi shows and books...Lost in Space (dating myself here), Star Trek & some of the sequels, Stargate, Battlestar Galactica, The Time Traveler's Wife, Somewhere in Time, Merlin--the list goes on and on.
Some of the plots in Dr. Who are interwoven and you need to stay on your toes--here is where it helps to watch it with someone who has seen each episode numerous times! I won't be spoiling anything if I tell you Dr. Who is about a time traveling alien. The episodes are well thought out, and I especially love the ones where The Doctor (no, his name is NOT Dr. Who) goes back in time to interact with famous people--Winston Churchill, Hitler, and Vincent Van Gogh to name a few.
There are also some re-occurring monsters, one of which is my daughter's favorite, Weeping Angels. They are statues. If you come across one of these denizens, Don't Blink! They can't move while you are looking at them. Which now (finally) brings me to the point of this post...
Ravelry! I used worsted weight acrylic yarn so it came out bigger than the pattern said, but I love how she came out & hope my daughter does, too. It will be in her Valentine's Day package from home.
Are you a fan of Sci-Fi?
For anyone interested, I have just added a new section to my shop...called "Last Chance Clearance". These items have been reduced & will only be available until they expire--they will not be renewed!
