One day in the spring of senior year, I was talking with my good friends Matt and Phil while wasting time at pep band.  Somehow out of this conversation came a discussion of MST3K, and subsequently "Manos, The Hands of Fate," which is just about the worst movie ever made (besides maybe Gigli), but still tends to be their favorite of the parodies.  Seriously, I know at least one guy in the movie killed himself before the premiere, maybe more. Well anyways, I had just finished knitting a scarf, and while thinking of those bizarre, giant hands of fate, I put the two and two together.
Phil would be the recipient, as Matt was too man to wear a scarf apparently.
Unfortunately, I am a huge procrastinator, and I didn't get myself to make it until this past winter break.  Well, he wouldn't have worn it in the summer anyways, right?!

If you are missing out on Manos and need some reference, here ya go: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0060666/

Here we go:

The scarf!

With Phil!

Basically just fleece, my sewing machine, and a bit of appliqueing.  Now back to the studies!

Oh. My. That is DEFINITELY the worst movie ever!!! (Yes, I've seen the MST3K. I'm surprised Crow didn't kill himself.) But funny scarf.

a resting place for overachievers.

lol, that is just hilarious.
nice scarf!
incidentally, the manos remind me of my elementary school's logo. which was a hand with really long and skinny fingers.

hahah, oh god, Manos is as terrible as your scarf is rockin!

(also, there were a LOT of shameful deaths after Manos premiered. Read the IMDB trivia page!)

wow, this is completely kickass.  i've been subjected (sometimes unwillingly) to hours of MST3K by my former roommate, and i did a double take when i saw the manos hands.  i love people who craft obscure movie references.

thanks also for the link to the trivia on imdb.  great stuff.
