In early January 2014, I began knitting this scarf. Whovians will recognize it as the one worn by the awesome character Osgood in the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it (as did many DW fans!), and I knew I had to make it! I prefer the style and the colors to the Tom Baker scarf, so I was really excited to start it. I knew it would be a bit of a massive undertaking, as it is meant to be really long, there are many color changes, and its knit in 1x1 rib. So it makes perfect sense that I started it just two days before having a baby, right? I worked on it here and there, when I could, after our daughter was born, but progress was definitely slow. As the 1-year mark approached, I knew I wanted to get it finished up. I wanted to be able to wear it and enjoy it before winter faded away into spring and such a ginormous, heavy scarf would be laughable (and, well, HOT!). I also didn't want it to languish in my WIP pile any longer.
