Dr. Watson's Scarf

Over the holiday break, I had a chance to see Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and one of the surprise highlights for me was Dr. Watson's scarf. Turns out I wasn't alone. There's a thread devoted to making the scarf on Ravelry and one ambitious knitter is auctioning off her own version of the scarf on eBay.  

And while it's certainly a fine scarf (don't get me wrong), my reaction to the movie wasn't that I wanted to knit one.  Small Spoiler Alert: In one scene Watson stands by calmly as his personal items are lifted by a tribe of gypsies... until they take the scarf made by his fiancee.

Yes, I'm such a dweeb that my first thought was, "He's ready to fight for the knitwear!" And while I'm still a Sherlock/Robert Downey Jr girl, for one moment there you could classify me as Team Watson.

  1. I knew about that scarf so long before the movie came out that it isn't even funny.
    I was delighted to find that his fiance made it for him, though. ;)
