365-Knit


I know this has done the rounds on some blogs already but I've just found some new (to me) images and had to share. Have you seen Siren Elise Wilhelmsen's 365 Knitting Clock? Don't you love it? I'm seriously coveting this wondrous thing :)


This fabulous creation measures time by length, knitting away the minutes and the hours, and finally producing a two meter long scarf after a year has passed. 


So cool... I'm looking forward to seeing posts in the future featuring interiors filled with meters and meters of beautifully knitted yarn twirling around the furnishings :)



 Norwegian-born Wilhelmsen graduated last year as an industrial designer from the University of Arts in Berlin and has already founded her own studio. You can see more of her designs on her website and blog.

p.s. sorry... forgot to mention... all my attempts to find where I could buy such a wonder were fruitless. I don't think they've been mass produced as yet... but yes, wouldn't it be perfect to actually own one? :)

I want, I want! Where can I get one?!

So glad you shared this, as I hadn't seen it yet. I'm so taken by this simple and remarkable concept that has been so beautifully realised. What a brilliant designer.

I love it! You can actually see time - how cool is that!!!!!!!!!! BTW - maybe they should use sock yarn - it'd turn out a pretty pattern as well!
