Jaded commuters will relate to this ‘rail delay scarf’


Was your train delayed this morning? Are you perhaps reading this story on a delayed train? Then you, reader, will love this scarf.

For the past year, a woman in Germany has been documenting her commute through knitting. She knits two rows per day and chooses her yarn color based on how delayed her train is. Her daughter, journalist Sara Weber, tweeted an explanation of the key on Sunday: gray for delays less than five minutes, pink for five to 30 minutes, and red for 30 minutes or more.

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 Minutenpic.twitter.com/PpGJiiU8AS
