Knit Tardis Dishcloth and My What Big Feet You Have

   It feels like forever since I have posted here. I haven't had time for anything creative since returning to school in September, but remembered that I was knitting this dishcloth from Dr. Who during our home repairs back in August and never posted it. I found the pattern here: Tardis dishcloth . My daughters and I really enjoyed the show when David Tennant was the Dr., but have kind of lost interest now that there's a new doctor.  Matt Smith is funny, but it's just not the same. I also have a dalek in progress, maybe someday I will finish it;)  I love British t.v. when I get the chance to watch, my favorite show being As Time Goes By with Dame Judy Dench. The BBC rocks!

   I have been desperate to get my hands into something creative, so I have been trying to sneak in a few rows here and there on these fiber trends felted slippers:

I now have one done, one to go. I made a pair of these a few years back and actually wore them out, they were so toasty and warm. It is amazing how much they shrink when you felt them. Right now it looks like one of Bozo's slippers;)
 And now it's back to homework, that's all the time I have today for fooling around.


  1. I really like "As Time Goes By" too......hubby's favorite is "Last of the Summer Wine", and he still watches it every night, though the characters it started with are all dying off !

    I've been curious about making some of the felted slippers, but never bothered to get a pattern. I love to felt things, is amazing to see the difference it makes !

    Good to read your post again.

  2. Your dish cloth is too pretty to use!

    Felting is fun. I'd love to try slippers. I got hooked on felted bags!

  3. Can't wait to make it! I think I'll make a bunch and stitch them together to make an afghan :) Thanks for the pattern!
