The Stitch Marker is On

I’m playing catchup on some posts and wanted to share one of the goodies I got for my birthday. In addition to this adorable cupcake, that is.

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the show Sherlock and have been a bit of an evangelist to recruit new fans. It’s become a running joke whenever anyone talks about TV shows in my immediate vicinity: “Hey, you know what’s a good show? Sherlock.” Fine. But seriously, you do need to watch it.

For my birthday, my husband got me a set of Sherlock stitch markers on Etsy in honor of my fandom. I love them.

My fellow fans will recognize the references and that trademark Sherlock stare. The game is on.

Out and About

I went out for a quick shopping trip today, and found this crocheted skirt. It wasn’t flattering on me, but I thought the design was interesting.

The bottom edge was especially pretty. I bet I could make something like this if I had the inclination…

Here’s a closeup of the main stitch pattern:

I also enjoyed this sign… well, they’re not wrong.

And finally, HobLob attempted to put me in the Christmas spirit, but I wasn’t into it.
