Norwegian TV is broadcasting a marathon session of making a sweater.  From shearing the sheep to spinning the yarn to knitting, all in 5 hours.






It’s not clear why this is presumed humorous to many online writers. Maybe they’ve never enjoyed watching someone spin yarn and knit a sweater? Or done it themselves?

One of the TV stations in New York City used to broadcast a burning yule log during the Christmas holidays.  Is it so far fetched to still enjoy the simpler things on television?

What do you think? Is this just funny, or a serious and welcome return to simpler activities?
