Don’t Blink (no, really)

Posted July 9, 2012 by Maire in Patterns / 5 Comments

I know, I know, I’ve been coy with what I’ve been working on…but I really wanted to get most of the work out of the way before I decided to share. It’s a pattern of Whovian inspiration — the wings of the Weeping Angels in Blink, The Time of Angels, and Flesh and Stone. It’s taken at least 3 tries to get it right.

I’ve tossed the testknit pattern onto Ravelry so that anyone who is interested can give it a look and a try. I’m hoping I’ve knocked out most of the bugs, but it’s possible that I’ve under-explained something, or missed something else…etc.


I would love to see pictures if anyone gives the pattern a try! I will probably corral one of my friends to do the primary modelling for the final pattern, but am always open to other ideas if a great picture comes along (and of course, you would be asked first, as I’m a big supporter of creative copyright).

One of my biggest worries is that I’ve unknowingly copied someone else’s work, but I think I’ve managed to make the pattern as original as possible. Robin has been watching my progress, from the first attempt to the latest prototypes, and can attest to the fact that I’ve worked on little else for the past month.

Please remember that this is still in testknit phase, and as such, there may be errors in the PDF.

Pictures soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I can cut down my colour work for a bit and give it a knit:)ย  Will most likely try on 2.0 or 2.25mm needles to compensate for my small feets ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I’d recommend only going down one needle size, at least until you’ve checked the cuff. I’m finding my test sock is a bit snug, but then…I have proportionately chubby ankles ๐Ÿ˜‰
