Wind-powered Knitting Factory

Wind powered knitting factory (detail) Copyright Merel Karhof
Here at knitonthenet we are usually all about the hand knitting, but this was too good to miss.
London based product designer, Merel Karhof has designed a wind-powered knitting maching which makes lovely scarves. You can see a video of it in action on her website here.
Isn't it clever? It reminds me of Rachael Matthews and Louise Harries' Louder than Bombs installation in which they had a bicycle-powered yarn mill. You can read Rachael's article about it here.
