Knitting Inspiration - Gradation. Not exactly an ombre, although those are nice too, but more like a gradation of texture or pattern or motif. In spite of the practically balmy weather that seems to have followed in the wake of the snowpocalypse, I’m not really feeling vibrant colors yet. At the moment I’m drawn to soft, muted, luminous hues and undyed fibers, subtle contrast, cleverly understated construction and stitch patterns. Sort of like the knitting equivalent of a lull between storms.

oh my god, you tried
"Recently, I was asked to proofread Gary Russell’s marvellous Doctor Who: The Encyclopedia. And under C for Cruciform, he’d written that this was seized by the Daleks… on Gallifrey! No, I said to him! Oh no! NO!!! And he reacted with genuine surprise, cos he’d honestly assumed from the Master’s speech ("I was there when the Dalek Emperor took control of the Cruciform") that this Cruciform, whatever it is, was on the Time Lord’s home planet.
Now, in my fevered thoughts, I happen to know exactly what the Cruciform was, and what it did (and it’s more terrible than I can say, of a scale and ferocity that’s absolutely untransmittable on primetime BBC One, or anywhere, come to that; the Time War wasn’t just spaceships and super-zooming battles, it was a disgusting, horrific, temporal hell). And bless Gary, he was lovely about it, and amended the entry.
But I’ve spent a good while since, thinking that I was wrong. That if Gary thinks it was Gallifreyan, then he’s got every right to think so. It’s not mine any more! And I’ve got no plans to show a Cruciform at work - not unless we ever get a Lord of the Rings-size budget (anyone? No? Please? Hush, Phil, be quiet) so nothing’s about to appear on screen that would contradict Gary’s theory.
And yet, and yet… I’m still glad we changed the entry, cos while you can argue forever about bleedin’ canonicity and its sources, the Encyclopedia’s status as an official BBC book, sanctioned by the production office, would have given the Gallifrey theory more weight. It would have become that awful thing, a fact. And that’s taking it away from you. It’s taking away the choice. The Master’s fleeting reference to the Cruciform had 7.5 million viewers; that allows for 7.5 million different versions of the Cruciform to exist. And actually… isn’t that brilliant? Isn’t that the best thing an idea can do, go anywhere, be anything, for anyone?
The Golden Age, the Cruciform, the Fall of Arcadia, the Church of the Tin Vagabond, all of ‘em. They’re yours. Just as I’ve treasured my own versions of Ancient Silurian Civilisation, and the origin of the Great Intelligence, and whatever-happened-to-the-rest-of-the-Zygons, for years and years and years. I think that’s Doctor Who’s greatest legacy - an imagination that goes way beyond the screen, and all the way into your head, where it’s yours, forever.”
from which edition of the DWM does this come from?!
Jacqueline Rayner, (author of The Stone Rose), DWM 471
… she also goes over the best Doctor Who moments in her family’s opinion of 2013: the discovery of lost episodes, seeing Paul McGann in Night of the Doctor, and An Adventure in Space and Time.
Meaning that she managed to write an entire article about the best of 2013 Doctor Who without mentioning a single canon episode or the 50th anniversary, and fangirls over s8 because Capaldi is hot as opposed to the scripts—that is actually all sorts of awesome. Moffat must be steaaming XD I fully approve of this.
