Tardis Socks

My cousin / best friend is a major fan of the Dr. Who TV show so for her birthday, I decided to make her some Tardis socks. I don't watch the show myself but from what I understand, the Tardis is a time machine disquised as a British Police Box which translates pretty well into the world of socks.

I am really happy with how they came out... both because I had less than a week to make them so I was rusing just a bit and because they are my first fair isle project. I was really hesitate to attempt fair isle since intarsia was a miserable trauma for me but these really weren't that bad to knit. In fact the fair isle was so low stress that I am already considering a pair of space invader socks for my brother in law's Christmas gift.

Anyway, I hope she likes these socks and I hope you do too.
