So a few years ago (18 to be exact) I worked with a friend, we'll call her A. She and I became pregnant at about the same time.
Several months into my pregnancy we moved away and I was busy being pregnant, starting a new job, etc etc.
Now I usually knit baby gifts for friends but I was so busy that A's baby did not receive a hand knit.
Fast forward 19 years: A somewhat newer friend, J, (who also happens to be a knitter) is into Dr. Who. In trolling about on knitty.com, I discovered Bigger On The Inside. No, this is not an unseemly name (and heaven knows what unseemly traffic I'll get just for typing those words) but more importantly: it is a shawl/scarf and its name refers to Dr. Who's conveyance called "The Tardis" which was/is/will be ( think that might be some Dr. Who humor) a blue English police box on the outside but a larger space ship interior a la 1960 on the inside.
(Here's the closest thing I could find during my trip to Wales...a telephone box).
So, I posted the knitty page on FB to show J.
Well, A. spied my post and immediately asked me to knit one for her daughter (who is a month younger than my son). Naturally, I obliged. As it turns out, A's daughter is a lover of green, as am I.
I used Knitpicks Stroll in the color Peapod.
My favorite Dr. Who is Tom Baker. TARDIS, as it turn out, stands for "Time And Relative Dimension In Space".
