COMMUTING GONE CRAFT
Meine Mutter ist Pendlerin im Münchner Umland. Und begeisterte Strickerin. 2018 hat sie einen “Bahn-Verspätungsschal” gestrickt. Pro Tag zwei Reihen: Grau bei unter 5 Minuten, rosa bei 5 bis 30 Minuten Verspätung, rot bei Verspätung auf beiden Fahrten oder einmal über 30 Minuten. pic.twitter.com/PpGJiiU8AS— Sara Weber (@sara__weber) January 6, 2019
Temperature blankets can be a big and logistical commitment, so one German woman applied the idea to something she was already doing each day: commuting. The three-color scarf depicts her train delays for each day of 2018. She knit two rows each day – one row for the morning and one row for the evening commute – using grey to document 5 minutes delayed, pink to document 5-30 minutes delayed, and red to document over 30 minutes delayed. While we shudder at the 6-week red period of over 30+ minute delays, we’re thankful she had her knitting.
CO: Afternoon in Lisbon

The rectangular, two-color, fingering weight shawl features classic garter stripes and an eye-catching mosaic motif inspired by the ceramic tiles in Lisbon. Pick two semi-solid skeins in high contrast colors to create a timeless shawl that you will wear on the regular.
