Don't Blink

They look like two skeins of yarn, but they are so much more.  Very soon, they'll become this dropped stitch sweater and a reminder of one of my favorite Dr. Who episodes.  You know, where Sally Sparrow finds all the VHS Easter egg messages from the Doctor and finally understands the cryptic words "Don't Blink" refer to the quantum-locked statues around her...   Oh, just watch the clip before Youtube removes it.




Anyway, this Gissing by Roman Hills is such a soft, fingering weight yarn with much color depth.  The color is... Don't Blink.  See, I was going somewhere with all of the geekspeak.  I won a big discount on a sweater's worth in a Holla Knits contest and was so excited to get the actual Who inspired colorway.   It's like wearing a little bit of a classic, paying homage to the Tennant Years.  

It's going so quickly, I'm almost ready to separate for the sleeves.   Guess what I'll be watching while I work on it?
