The Knit Wit

I recently bought Hot Pink Heather a crochet kit. It had some needles and other tools and a “How To Crochet” book. As I bought it, though, I had a vague memory of some commercial about a device that created little knitted circles that could be combined to make a quilt. A little searching later, and I was watching this commercial for the Knit Wit. How many times did I see this on late night 80s TV? I don’t know. But I’d sure love to have that Knit Witted butterfly afghan.

Behold the Homemade 25 Foot Long Doctor Who Scarf

No this is not a photo of the newest Doctor. Instead it is Retroist reader, Joeseph Aulde, who recently told us about a Who scarf that was made for him in the 1980s. After mentioning the scarf he sent over a great picture of this wondrous knit in action (warming neck). This beauty is “Mother made”, so it is chock full of quality AND optimism, making it both a replica and one of a kind.
