Why I should never challenge my wife to anything…

Largely because she’s awesome.

Last Saturday, she finished off a hand-knitted Dalek, which was pretty awesome all of itself. For those that care, our youngest now insists on taking it to bed with him. I’m sure he’ll grow up to be a fine, well adjusted young man. Or ruler of the universe. Either one is fine by me.

In cheeky fashion, I quipped at her that “Daleks are dead easy. Bet you can’t do Davros!”

So what did she do? Answers after the jump…
