Christmas Gifting

In 2009 one of my favorite movies came out, Sherlock Holmes, with Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. I am a complete Holmes fan, but not a purist so this action-packed  adaptation of the classic detective story was perfect.

As a costumer I loved the movie as well. I especially loved the scarf Dr. Watson appeared in right at the beginning. The brown and blue one striped with grey. It was long and warm and looked like a costume piece that could easily get slipped into the modern wardrobe.

So I started knitting. And because I’m such a speed knitter it only took me until last week to complete. I’ve been on a kick of finishing projects lately and all this scarf was waiting on was 20 minutes to weave in the ends of all the yarn.

As I was preparing to list it for sale in my Etsy shop my dashing 18 year old brother walked up and caught a glimpse. He pointed to the Christmas list he had just posted which said “1. Unique Scarf”.

It’s sure unique! I made him pretend he hadn’t seen it and quickly wrapped it up and dropped it under the tree.
Merry Christmas!

That is such a cool scarf! Good job finishing it up! And I love that movie too! I've only read one of the Sherlock Holmes stories so far but it was good!
