The history of the scarf began to wind up in early January: Weber said that her mother regularly travels from home to the city and knits a scarf. A woman knitted two rows a day, selecting wool by color depending on the size of the train’s lateness: if it was less than five minutes late or arrived on time, she chose gray wool; when delayed from 5 to 30 minutes – pink; and if the delay exceeded 30 minutes or the train was late in traveling both there and back, the rows were red.
