Ever Look At Yarn And Think It Could Be More Sonic?

In my ongoing posts for a series I’m not really watching but make props from,  I give you the Sonic Screwdriver V2.  There are seven designs available on Ravelry at the time I posted this, available in both knit and crochet.   This particular design is based off of the Tenth Doctor’s design.

I’ve made two of them.  Believe it or not, these small pieces are a lot more difficult to make than the large ones.  While things like the TARDIS and the Dalek are impressive since they are accurate in design.  Something this small requires the stitches to be close and tight, as well precise. Any error or yarn split sticks out like a sore thumb.  Working in such small rounds is never easy, and adding in color changes adds another layer of difficulty.  The other frustrating thing was having to buy 200 yards worth of yarn when I needed less than one to finish the project.  Over all, I’m very happy with how these screwdrivers came out.
