Doctor Who not a knitter… May 14, 2008

“A Doctor Who fan is embroiled in a row with the BBC after she published knitting patterns for the sci-fi drama’s monsters on the internet.”

This is a rather disappointing news story about a knitter who made patterns for Doctor Who characters, distributed her patterns for free, and then got in trouble because other people were selling the items they’d made using her patterns.

It’s a shame the BBC felt they had to put a stop to this – and sadly the internet’s own TARDIS, the Wayback Machine, doesn’t seem to have snagged a copy of the patterns. But you can see some pictures of a knitted TARDIS here.
