John Thomas: Not just a euphemism for male genitalia

Sunday, May 28th, 2006

Scandinavian loop liningsThose sex-crazed Scandinavians are at it again.

“Looped linings can also be knitted in using a ‘John Thomas,’ a short, thick length of dowelling, round which the yarn is wound at every stitch.”

From Traditional Scandinavian Knitting by Sheila McGregor (ISBN: 0486433005).

The looped linings are (of course) to provide more insulation against the cold Scandinavian winters. The amusement I get from reading about the tool they use to make that insulation: that’s just a fortunate byproduct.
