TARDIS Afghan – Week 2

Hello all!

As I mentioned last week, I have started this Afghan over a few times. In order too avoid that this time, I cheated a little. ¬†So far, the cheat is working for me. I’m over the part I kept messing up! Yay!!! ūüôā

The cheat: ¬†Instead of again losing my place in the beginning maze of color switches, I did 20 ¬†straight black rows. I’m going to go back over it and sew the gray triangles in later. (I hope that made sense lol) You can see in the below pics where these rows are very easily!

I have a horrible migraine today and can’t look at my computer. But, I wanted to make sure I updated my progress… so I’m using my phone to post. Which may mean this doesn’t work. Wish me luck…

Here is the TARDIS Afghan in its second week:

Some info on this pattern: ¬†It’s 337 stitches across. When finished, it will be (or at least it should be according to the pattern) 9’6″ x 6’4″. I’m using Knitpicks Wool of the Andes. It’s a worsted weight yarn (and one of my favorites). The pattern is available on Ravelry at Doctor Who TARDIS Afghan.

Any questions, just ask. This is a lot of fun to knit! Of course, I’m one of those knitters who enjoys having 2-4 different colors on use at a time so it may not be for everyone lol.

“Please Don’t, I’m afraid it will cause actual brain damage.”

Ok, so this is an actual conversation I just had with my 15 year old.

Me: ¬†I’m going to hit you with my book.**

Her: ¬†Please don’t. ¬†It’s really thick. ¬†I’m afraid it will cause actual brain damage — Wait! ¬†Who’s book is thicker? ¬†*grabs her book and holds it up against mine* ¬†Yours is thicker. ¬†Just by a little bit though.

Not sure if she’s afraid or disappointed she can’t take me in a book fight…

** No teenagers were actually hit with a book.

CONTEXT: ¬†After posting this yesterday it was pointed out that, without context, this may not come across as funny. ¬†So, I give you — context! ¬†We are huge fans of Doctor Who in our house. ¬†We are even bigger fans of books. ¬†A friend sent me the below image. ¬†It’s from the Doctor Who episode that started a running joke in our house. ¬†We have never actually hit each other with books (at least not on purpose. ¬†Weeelll…. at least not hard enough to hurt. ¬†Only in fun and only while giggling).
