A Clock That Knits by Siren Elise Wilhelmsen

November 8, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Siren Elise Wilhelmsen has designed a clock that literally knits time.

Every passing of a half hour is marked by the knitting of a mesh, a full day is registered as one round around the clock and a year results in a 2-m-long [6′ 5″] scarf. After one year they yarn has to be replaced with a new one and a new year can be knitted.

Elise has some other cool concepts. (via fastco)
