Famous Knits: Amelia Pond

Written by Sarah on April 22nd, 2013 Posted in famous knits

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?

ps. Don’t forget to enter the Craftsy giveaway if you haven’t already!

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!

    Fish fingers and custard <3
    I almost wish I was at the same place as you right now! Watching my first Dr Who season (it was the same one) was so exciting and joyous, I wish I could go back to those thrilling moments of discovery and giggling!

      Ah I hope the magic never ends! 🙂

    I’ve got so many fun knitting memories associated with Dr. Who. You are going to have such a great time getting caught up.

    I love that red sweater! Reverse engineer it and then tell us how to do it. I’ve also just recently started watching Doctor Who. Love it!

    Great information. Interesting, clear and precise. Great job Sarah.

    I found your page because I was looking for source pics on that sweater myself!! I absolutely *have* to make it, so I hope your version comes out well and I can bask in the glow of whatever you’ve learned from it 🙂

      Yay! I will definitely post when I get around to making it! I can’t wait!
