another man scarf

Hello there, I just wanted to direct you to another lovely Man Scarf that was brought to my attention recently! I’m so happy people are finding my notes helpful in bringing smiles to the faces of men in their lives :)

And I like the colour of this one – it reminds of me of the “snow” you get on TV after the programme is finished (is it called “snow” in English too?). Thank you Where the nodding violets grow for sharing!

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.

  1. It is called snow in English too. I know exactly what you mean, it does look like the tv snow. That has triggered a memory of the TV station playing the national anthem at the end of the programmes and then getting the snow. You would know then that it was definitely time for bed. TV just goes on for most of the night now and you don’t get the snow quite so much. Shame.

    • Ah yes, the “definitely time for bed” feeling – I know what you mean! For some reason I have always been super-attracted to knits that remind me of the snow, even before I was a knitter. So I really love your scarf!

  2. Yay for man scarves!

    Every language I know calls that TV phenomenon “snow”. It’s one of those funny, truly global (as far as I know) things.

  3. Hehehe, snow :) It does look like that! Did you know that a small part of that ‘snow’ signal is remnants of the Big Bang?! Scary!

    On a less scary note, en excerpt from Wikipedia: In Sweden, Denmark and Hungary the phenomenon is often called myrornas krig in Swedish, myrekrig in Danish and hangyák háborúja in Hungarian, which translate to “war of the ants” or sometimes hangyafoci which means “ant soccer”, and in Romanian, purici, which translates into “fleas”.
