  1. Would you consider making a TARDIS?

  2. Hi Ashley - I would certainly give it a try! It's not necessarily on my radar at the moment, but I've not given it much thought before so now that you've mentioned it I will add it to my ever long to-do list :) jenny xx

  3. Hi found you blog info in the Knit now mag and think it is great. I was wondering if you know of a X wing crochet of knitting pattern? My husband is Star Wars crazy and has been asking for ages for me to make one but have yet to find one. My Son is also Dr Who made so the Tardis would be fab x

    1. HI :) oh thank you that's lovely! I've actually bought a pattern for an X Wing, the Millenium Falcon, and a Tie Fighter from an etsy shop (link below) and haven't made the X Wing yet but the millenium falcon was pretty good. The price is a little steep but I couldn't find an alternative I was happy with - if you don't want to pay then a search through Pinterest might do the trick, I will have to put the Tardis back up on my to-do list there is an interest for one :) jenny xx

  4. OMG, a pattern for a moogle, I am so excited about this pattern I am going to start it straight away, hopefully I will have time to finish it in time for my daughters birthday, thank you so much, I was wondering if you had any other final fantasy related patterns please, my daughter and I are huge fans of these games, thank you again

  5. This is a really good tip especially to those fresh to the blogosphere. Simple but very accurate information… Many thanks for sharing this one. A must read post! sign in hotmail
