Dr Who?

I haven't watched the program for years - decades, in fact, but I just made two Dr Who scarves - sort of.

Two weeks ago, I went out to the shed at the back of my lot, and discovered the Dr Who scarf I had made for Dominic 25-30 years ago. I thought he had taken it with him when he moved back to NJ. He tells me that I made another one for him, as well, and he has that one. Anyway, the one here had significant mouse damage.
I brought it into the house and washed it, then started making another scarf from the yarn as I unraveled it. The original scarf was 15 inches wide and about 12 feet long. I decided to make the new one 10 inches wide and no longer than 8 feet. It turned out to be about 7 feet, because I came to another bit of mouse damage at that point. Then I started a second scarf from the rest of the old one. It is 7 1/2 inches wide and not quite 5 feet long. I now have a bunch of little balls of yarn (up to 2 yards each) that I want to do something with. Maybe I'll put them together and make a hat.
