James' Knit Notes

Turning frustration into a charitable gift.

Over the past year, knitting commuter Claudia Weber recorded the daily train delays between her home in the Bavarian countryside and Munich. Each night she knitted two rows of stitches on a scarf using grey for delays under five minutes, pink for up to 30 minutes and red for more than a half-hour. At the end of the year her daughter, Sara, posted a picture on Twitter. It received 23,000 likes and requests from international news media for interviews. Then the scarf was placed on eBay to raise money for a German charity that provides assistance to people at train stations. To read Palko Karasz’s full story from The New York Times, click here:
