EXTERMIKNIT! A project for Dr. Who fans

My son sent me this on Twitter, via a ReTweet from Wil Wheaton (he played Wesley Crusher on Star Trek the Next Generation). It's absolutely brilliant.

Apparently, the basic pattern has been around for a while, but this guy supercharged it with an actual mutant alien inside. If you know anything about Dr. Who, this will be hilarious to you. If not, he supplies links for information that will explain it.

Anyway, I thought you'd all enjoy this.

I've got the Doctor Who

I've got the Doctor Who Pattern Book. I still haven't made anything from it, but when I do, the K-9 toy is at the top of that list.

I have a copy of the original Extermaknit pattern too. I didn't think it existed anywhere any more because the BBC was being pretty strict about copyrights and such. The revised version with the innards is pretty darn sweet!

Thanks!

That would be cool. I've been sorely tempted to do the Dr. Who scarf from Tom Baker's years as the 4th Doctor, but haven't taken the plunge yet.

That book had a pattern for the Tom Baker scarf, even to the proper striping sequence. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Wow! As a Whovian since the mid-70s I've seen lots of fun things. I still regret not getting the knitting book based on Dr. Who that even had a knit K-9 toy pattern in it. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
