February Phat Fiber Sampler – Doctor Who Series

Since my designs were sent off this morning to the Phat Fiber headquarters I thought I’d share with you everything I’m sending in this month for the Phat Fiber sampler box. The box is a great way to try out indie designers and dyers. This month’s theme is “geekery,” which really speaks to me, and that meant that I had far too many ideas! So since I couldn’t decide, instead of one design, I’ve included what seems like a billionty designs.  But they are all framed around one specific geek love of mine – Doctor Who. The first four designs pictured are part of my companion series and the next four are part of my regular Doctor Who series. And yes, everything’s up in the Exchanging Fire shop!

Doctor Who Extravaganza!

I’m so excited to reveal to of you the new stitch marker designs I’ve been working on at Exchanging Fire since season seven of Doctor Who ended this summer. I’ve been preparing for the 50th anniversary and Christmas specials, of course. And what better way to enjoy them then knitting along with your very own DW-themed stitch markers? Most of the modern companions are included, as well as some of my favorite quotes and concepts from the show. I hope you enjoy!

Stitch marker extravaganza!!!

Wow, I’m on a stitch marker making spree! Since I last posted, I’ve been simply churning out stitch markers. I think this is in part because it’s simply too hot to knit. Seriously. I have my Swappy Scrappy Scarf sitting right on my kitchen table, and every day I look and it and think, “huh, I should knit some more of that” and then I scrunch of my face and go make markers instead. Since I haven’t been in the mood to work with wool, working with cool hard metal seems infinitely more pleasing to my fingers. Anyways, this is going to be a picture heavy post, because I simply want to show off some the beauties I’ve made recently. As always, you can check out more of my work in my Etsy shop, Exchanging Fire, or click on the photo of the stitch markers you like to follow the link to that particular listing.

Daughters of the Water
“My sons and daughters of the water, Hide between the gnarled branches, Of our family tree that's come, To rest amongst the creeping beasts, That watch us from the bog, We all call home.” ~ Doctor Who, Vampires of Venice



The Deepest Blue
“A very great vision is needed and the man who has it must follow it as the eagle seeks the deepest blue of the sky.” ~ Crazy Horse



Cherries of the Night
“In the cherry pluckt at night, With the dew of summer swelling, There's a juice of pure delight, Cool, dark, sweet, divinely smelling.



The Emotional Inhibitor
“Heart of steel with a central nervous system. Oh, but look! The emotional inhibitor. Stops them feeling anything. It still has a human brain. Imagine its reaction if it could see itself, realize itself, inside this thing. It would go insane.” ~ The Doctor in Doctor Who, The Age of Steel



Give Lucy A Jumper
“Rory! That's a relief. I thought I'd burst out of the wrong cake. Again. That reminds me, there's a girl outside in a bikini. Could someone let her in, give her a jumper? Lucy. Lovely girl. Diabetic.” ~ The Doctor in Doctor Who, Vampires of Venice



As Fierce As The Forest
“The mountains, the forest, and the sea, render men savage; they develop the fierce, but yet do not destroy the human.” ~ Victor Hugo
