Besides messing with some hardware from time to time, I love a lot of other great things, which includes Doctor Who series and knitting. It's not like I'm some granny, I'm 21 years old and male, I just feel so relaxed during this knitting jobs and after that. That's fantastic 😀
So the other day I was at home not knowing what to do and than I thought "Well, winter's coming, it's knitting time!)". So I guessed that this time I wanted a sweater for a cold Siberian winter with something special on it. And that something special would be Tardis from Doctor Who series.
I looked up some photos on the internet, took a picture of a Tardis, used Photoshop to turn it into 6-color image of the exact size I needed. Took a lot of work, really. Then I opened mspaint on my Pentium MMX PC. Windows 98 paint is the righteous paint, this Seven-style paint is annoying and can no longer do the pixel-art job. I carefully edited the picture so that it would posess no half-tones and so that it would be nice and crisp.
With the special free software called StitchArtEasy (lame name, but a very nice thing indeed) I converted the image into a scheme and printed it.
After pucking the threads, I started to work and here's what I've got after 2 weeks:
It's on the top of a sweater my girlfriend gave me as a Christmas present last year... I feel perfectly comfortable in it, so I decided to stick to it's measures.
If you still give a damn, that's what the backside of it looks like. I try to be as carefull as I can, so I use multiple threads so that the result would be of a better quality.
