It’s family bonding time at 221B Baker Street, the boys are sharing a moment.
A hat is discovered, which (of course) triggers a game of Deductions.
The most important deduction by far is this simple observation, stated by Sherlock:
“Any body who wears a hat as stupid as this isn’t in the habit of hanging around other people, is he?”
Well, it’s not a stupid hat. It’s a lovely hat.
And you are JUST the person to knit it up, wear it, and prove Sherlock wrong (for once!)
Sherlock: “I’ve written a blog on the varying tensile strengths of different natural fibers.”
Mrs. Hudson: “I’m sure there’s a crying need for that!”
Reminiscent of a golden sunset, orange red highlighted with deep pinks are mixed with creamy undertones.
Bright blue and stark scarlet streaks on a deep purple base create a dramatic and beautiful fabric.
Yellows and reds marry with shades of orange in a strong, blocky colorway with a rich life of it’s own.
Sometimes Pink & Black play nice, like on a Chanel box, but in this colorway they’ve met in a dark alley and are halfway through a rip roaring night on the town. And they might not be home for breakfast.
Strong red & pink tones on light orange base with a touch of yellow, hot – like the planet for which it was named!
A strong blue with overtones of blue/black make this an unforgettable colorway.
A mix of strong green and mid blue tones on an aqua base floats over touches of warm yellow.
Deep, rich, strong red, so full of life you can almost taste it!
A warm olive green with yellow and black overtones, excellent as a neutral or for traditional male garments.
Not just black, but a combination of colors overdyed with the darkest grey to create layers of black with unusual glints of lighter grey.
Rich orange and subtle pink tones blend onto a yellow base make a color with a bit more life than the average orange blend.
An all over yellow-green with hints of warmer yellow and deep black to liven the coolness.
Touches of warm yellow on a dark yellow base, a lovely contrast when used with more active colorways.
A creamy, deep white with warmth in the light and coolness when paired with a darker color. This is the definitive neutral, a necessity!
A Study In Pink references the myriad shades of the victim’s coat, shoes, suitcase and – most important – cell phone, blended in a vibrant, snappy colorway which would work magnificently with any neutral, or with an equally sizzling tones!
Everybody into the pool? I have to struggle to keep all of my colorways from being different shades of blue, I love the color so much! What I particularly love about THIS blue colorway, Bristol South Pool, is that it’s so changeable.
