Please welcome the newest members of the DrFrankKnits small model family: The Daleks! Watch out, though. They just might EXTERMINATE you with cuteness!
I think I will work on making these available for sale in the near future. They stand on their own, so they’d make a great desk ornament – but I’ll probably offer them with an option of a keychain as well. They’re a little over 3 inches tall.
I made a larger Dalek model some time ago, but the endless bobbles on the lower section drove me nuts … so this smaller model with a seed-stitch type lower section is much more doable.
In truth, I’ve only seen a handful of the older Doctor Who episodes, so I’m not the greatest authority on the subject. I’ve always thought that I should be a rabid fan of the show, but never seemed to get caught up in it. However, I know the show continues to be very popular so I’m going to try to make a point to catch some of the newer stuff soon!
I hope the tiny Daleks made your day – keep an eye out here for more news and information on these and other cute softies!
