Grandma and Dr Who

I'm having a super busy week so this will be a quickie, but I couldn't pass up the chance to get in on Tardis Tuesday!  My grandmother was a big Dr Who fan in the 70s and 80's.  She was also a knitter.  Logically, this means that both my brother and I ended up with Dr Who scarves!  

I didn't like Dr Who when I was a kid ( think the aliens freaked me out) but I'm really into it in it's latest round. 

Tom Baker as the 4th Doctor in his scarf.


 And me in mine.

Who wore it better?

I'm a little ashamed to admit that I didn't appreciate it at the time but I do cherish this scarf now.  The rest of the outfit is all stuff you've seen before.  I've been pretty much living in this cardigan since I got it last week.


And because I can, I'm using a plastic Tyrannosaurus pin to hold the sweater closed as a reference to the Dinosaurs on a spaceship episode!


  1. Thoroughly brilliant! I especially love the plastic dinosaur. Thanks so much for linking up!

  2. I used to watch Dr Who behind the settee as a child. Bill Pertwe was my favourite although I watched it when Chris Eccleston took over, not 'cos I was interested in the show, I just adore him.
    Love the Tom Baker scarf! xxx

  3. Tom Baker definitely had the quirky thing going on as Doctor Who - I got his autograph when I was a kid, what a sad claim to fame! Great scarf, you look very cosy. xxx

  4. Dr Who comes and goes in our house, he is a bit of an institution though! your scarf is amazing, I love it! ps you totally inspired me to get mustard and red tights recently (they were in my size, hurrah!) I adore them x x x
