Wind-powered knitting

by Shannon on July 2, 2009

Quite possibly the coolest thing I’ve ever seen — a (what looks to be vintage) sock knitting machine powered by wind. I’ve just sent its creator an email, I desperately want to interview her for Yarn Forward, that is some seriously cool stuff! More about the project here.

ok, but what if you could create wind (i.e. air conditioning) via knitting? hmmm? for instance, all that winter knitting power gets stored up and is returned to us during nasty Ohio humid summer to cool our summer projects? yes, i am secretly a mad scientist.

Love it – harvesting knitting. 🙂 Although this may well start up my obsession with buying a sock machine – drat it all.
