This week the Geek-A-Long honors the impact Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had on modern forensic science. Doyle was a medical doctor, though he rarely practiced. However, his short stories featuring the infamous Sherlock Holmes allowed him to explore his passion for forensics.

For Doyle’s square we decided to use fingerprinting as a representation of forensic science. I LOVE how it turned out. I know I tell you most weeks that “this is one of my favorite squares…”, and that is always true. I love most of them, and at least like all of them. But this is my actual favorite square on the 2015 blanket and it was one of the first ones we designed for it.
