Who, what, where, when and, honestly, why?!?

So, last night I had this brilliant idea -

Wait. Let me back up a little. I'm a fan of Doctor Who. Not a big fan, but I do have my phone's ring-tone set to play the sound of an arriving Tardis and if someone shoots me a text, the Daleks warn me. Mind you, I started with the old series; it's not just the 'fantastic'-ness of the 9th Doctor that got me in to it.


So, back to my great idea. For a while now I've been meaning to take up knitting... again (I did years ago as a Girl Scout). So, I figured what better way to get back into it than knitting- you guessed it! The 4th Doctor's infamous scarf!


Then I thought, "Wait! I should document this in some kind of journal!" followed by "Wait! I should try selling these!" and concluded with, "Wait! I should just make a website!" So, I dreamed up a domain name and went to register it only to find...

www.doctorwhoscarf.com

Not to mention the dozens of other related websites you'll find if you do a Google search for 'fourth doctor scarf'. Apparently, there are bigger nerds out there than me.

*Almost everything above is a lie, aside from the website, my obsession with Doctor Who and my years knitting as a Girl Scout. Those are, fortunately or unfortunately, very real.

I loved Dr Who when I was a kid (it played every evening at 6) but I was also scared to death of it.
Davros in particular gave me weeks of nightmares.

At the time, it was Daleks for me... now I feel a bit ridiculous being frightened of cumbersome machines with plungers for arms. Although, they can fly now...
