The Scut Farkus Affair


While watching TBS’s 24-hour marathon of A Christmas Story, it hit me that this film had some of the most incredible handknits I’d seen on screen. Or at least the most. Scene after scene featured handknit items. “Holy cannoli!” I thought. “I wonder if there’s a Christmas Story group on Ravelry.” There wasn’t so I created The Scut Farkus Affair group so lovers of the best Christmas movie ever made could share patterns and laughs.

I had a hard time deciding on a name. At first I thought “I Can’t Put My Arms Down” would be hysterical, plus it had a subtle knitting connotation. “You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out” would have said it all but neither had that ring. Scut Farkus is far and away the best villain name ever thought up by the mind of man (or Jean Shepherd) so that was it.

If you’re on Ravelry and love (or even like) A Christmas Story, check out the group. Should be fun!
