Wind Powered Knitting Machines

I just came across this video of a London Art students' project -- a tubular knitting machine powered by a metal windmill. The artist, Merel Karhof, then divides up the tubes and sells individual scarves with labels telling how long it took to make the 2 meter scarf.

For more information on the process and how the idea came about go here. It's such a good idea, but holds a different type of aw than something lovingly knit by hand.
