Bigger on the inside
Bigger on the inside by Kate Atherley
Me at first, but it was given to Karen Gillan :D

2.5 skeins = 577.5 yards (528.1 meters), 125 grams

I originally made this for myself to wear to San Diego Comic-Con 2012. But while I was there, in line for the ticket drawing for the Doctor Who signing, and realized there was a chance I might actually MEET them, I made a spur of the moment decision to give the shawl to Karen Gillan as a going away present if I drew a winning ticket. I didn’t draw one :( But my friend did!

I gave him the shawl to pass along while I waited in the front of the crowd watching the signing. When he got up to the table he gave her the shawl and pointed me out. I got a big smile and wave from both her and Arthur Darvill (I couldn’t see Matt Smith from my angle). One of the volunteers that was working the signing snapped a picture of Karen in the shawl with my friend’s camera.

I gotta say, it was a little tough parting with my shawl, but at least I can always make another one.
