TARDIS socks!

Hi all,

I found the TARDIS socks pattern on Ravelry and just had to make a pair for a friend.

I used some rather cheap vari-coloured sock yarn and some black and white yarns I had in my stash.
Very pleased with the result:

I like the way the yarn not being a solid colour gives them a more battered/well used TARDIS look.

Thanks for looking!

Lovely. I totally agree with you about the variegated yarn for that well-loved look. (It's my excuse for not repainting my TARDiS-blue front door, too.)

Those are excellent. The variegated blues work really well.

Very pretty! I love the variation in the blue yarn. You're right, it does look like a well used (and well loved) TARDIS. Great work!

Hi, I saw this and wanted to say they are beautiful! I don't have any knitting skills at all, but I forwarded this page to a friend who is a keen knitter. She had a question I'm cutting and pasting here: "I've never done color work before but will check it out.  Is there anyway you can contact the knitter and see what brand yarn she used and also the color and or number?  I could not find it and looked on Ravelry where the pattern is."

I used some extremely cheap yarn from a pokey old crafts shop near my parents' house in Bristol, UK And probably the only ball left of it at that.. I'm afraid I don't have the brand name; it was just some cheap stuff that was bought for me as a present.
(Am wishing now it *was* a posher yarn as I would have remembered then!)

Sorry :(
