BBC Sherlock Hoopla!

Happy Sherlock Day!
Today is a day I've been waiting for since 2012.
Just about 2 years ago Sherlock Holmes jumped off a building to save his friends.

I'm getting a bit sentimental...
Today is my Superbowl.
(Usually my Superbowl is Oscar Day, but I'm making an exception this year!)

Like yesterday's Basil Kindle Sleeve post this Hoopla was also made for my partner, Camezzo,
in the Sherlock Swap of early 2013.

I decided to do a study in texture (Study in Pink) to spice up the silhouette.

My Sherlockian Plan tonight is to watch the heck out of it.
Since I'm DVR'ing it as well I'm going to watch the heck out of it 
a second time to bask in the glory and maybe pick up some missed things
 from the first watching.

I'm going to do some face stretches as I'm sure I'll have a 
grin on my face for 3 hours straight.

I suppose I'll go to sleep next, then wake up...
and watch it again!

Never mind me, my favorite show has been on hiatus for 2 years.

Basil of Baker Street Kindle Sleeve!

In honor of the US Premiere of BBC Sherlock
(Tomorrow night at 9pm!!!)
I'd like to share for your viewing pleasure...

The Basil of Baker Street Kindle pouch!

This was made for a Sherlock Holmes Swap which occurred in January 2012.
Optimal usage of my brown fabric marker!

Apart from the newer Sherlocks, 
(BBC I love/ Elementary I watch if desperate for a Sherlockian fix)
I always get a smidge of Steampunkery feel.

Here's the lining...

Tomorrow is Sherlock Day.
I may not be able to contain myself!!!

Not your usual Slythrin Hat!

Here's a hat made for the Potter Swap.
Slytherin was my partner's house, so a hat she'd need for 
those cold weather Quidditch Matches!

The pattern was from Charmed Knits and the yarn was from a sweater I 
unraveled years ago just to see if I could.

I wonder if there's a Slytherin Cheer...

You might be good at Potions
You might be good at runes
But when it comes to Quidditch
We kick you in the BROOM!
Say what?
We kick you in the BROOM!
We can't hear you
Go cry in your COMMON ROOM!

No Sew Respite Scarves!

Far too often we take on projects that seem to drag on forever...
and ever.

Every once in a while I like to feel crazy accomplished in the shortest time imaginable.

Today I made 2 no sew scarves for the kids,
aren't I amazing?!!?

Will was the instigator of this particular neckwear as he requested a "Luigi" scarf.
He wanted a knitted one and is still under the impression it is indeed....knit.
I'm going to let him go on thinking that.
(He's totally sucking his fingers under that scarf!)

My pal, Melissa supplied the fleece. 
They were scraps from a Scout project for her troop and she was nice enough to 
pass the fleecie goodness to me.
Even more than that, she didn't want Miss Mogan to go "new scarf-less" so 
she included some sassy pink fleece too!

THANKS MELISSA, you're the Hanx to my Scolari!!!
