Ood have thought it!

Now I know I am going straight to tabloid hell for that headline, but there has been a bit of a storm in a knitting bag going on in the last couple of weeks.

First of all the lovely Mazzmatazz brought us knitting patterns of her favourite Dr Who characters. I really liked the Ood and cute little Adipose. Then she got quite upset because unscrupulous knitters (an oxymoron if ever there was one) were apparently knitting them to sell on e-bay.
Before she could finish casting on, the whole mess had started to unravel as the BBC issued her with a warning or cease and desist or whatever they call it. Well, that’s enough to make anyone drop a stitch!
But knitters around the world weren’t having that. The BBC had clearly underestimated the power of the Knitwork! Needless to say harmony has been restored and it seems all the knots are now untangled but the story made it into The Times, The Mail on Sunday, the CBBC website and even the Age Concern website among many, others.
The best bit is Mazzmatazz may actually now be working with the BBC to develop patterns for them. Good for her.

Can I put a request in for a Dalek loo roll cover or a Cassandra cushion????
