Famous Knits: Amelia Pond
I just starting to watch Doctor Who recently. I know it’s hard to believe that someone nerdy enough to totally rock these pants (if she had $85 to spend on leggings, that is) isn’t already a Whovian. But it’s true. But I’m catching up, guys! So please indulge me as I talk about fish fingers and custard as if they were something brand new.
But, seriously, guys. I know those of you that like Doctor Who will always be willing to talk about it. Same goes for knitting. So this is a double whammy because we’re going to talk about Doctor Who and knitting. Right now.
Let’s talk about little Amelia Pond wearing the best cardigan slash rain boot ensemble ever. I always get super excited when I see a really great piece of knitwear on screen. This was certainly no exception. I love the lace details. Love them! And the cream ribbing paired with the too-short sleeves make it look like a great ’60s or ’70s hand-me-down. Aw, poor Amelia Pond!
I’m about to go out and buy some yarn for this cardi! I checked on Ravelry but I could only find one Amy Pond sweater that was a pullover. Adding this to my nerdy knits queue (which is a thing that I actually have) right now. Somebody get me some red wellies!
I’m so excited to start my own journey with the Doctor. I’m a little late to the game but I’m certainly already obsessed.
Anybody else coveting this red sweater?

pps. Somewhat unrelated but: a clip from the film Jon and I shot (was that two years ago, now? Time flies!) was featured on Eater last week!
