Time Tunnel Approaching!

I like sci-fi. (Some of it anyway.) I like knitting. I put the two together, and out came Time Tunnel. The squares were inspired by the Star Portal in a video game of my youth, Star Voyager: (the portal shows up at 41 seconds). For some reason I have very vivid memories of that portal, though it took me days to come up with the name of the game.

The pattern, released into the wild today, has options for a scarf in fingering or worsted weight and a cowl in worsted or bulky weight. Both are provided in written and charted format. It was super-addictive to knit - I made all four samples back-to-back-to-back. The stitch pattern is nothing complicated - only knit and purl. The blue one reminds me so much of a particular Police Box that I just had to 3D print a couple sonic screwdrivers to go with it. (For those of you who want to make one of your own, you can find the files at Thingiverse: 12's screwdriver here and 10's screwdriver top here. Paint them with nail polish, and you're all set.)

Did you know: Everyone is a time traveler! Einstein notwithstanding, we're all constantly moving forward in time at the rate of one second per second.

Happy knitting and time traveling,
