The scarf has been coming along quite well.
About a foot into it I began to worry about the length in earnest though. Luckily for me I belong to a Doctor Who scarf knitting community on Ravelry someone suggested using one of the patterns for the scarf written to be knit in a bulky or aran weight and knit it in a light worsted instead as a method of shortening. I started to knit it that way instead and have been very pleased with the way it's coming along thus far. I think when it's done it will be about 8 feet long.
It's been bitter cold for the last few days here so I've kind of wished I started in the fall so I would have it done by now. The scarf is long but not hard to knit and I've been pacing myself by doing roughly a stripe a day and I'm more than half way done now. I don't forsee this taking me as long as I had expected. I would definitely recommend this as a good project for any Doctor Who fan who wants an easy project.
