Knitter Please…Wind Powered Knitting Machine

Knitting is so boringly repetitious and requires so much manual labor to push that needle through the yarn and knit up your goodies. I say that as an observer since I’ve never actually knit anything in my life. So I guess technically I can only say that knitting is boring to watch. Maybe it’s tedious to do, I don’t know.

What I do know is that someone has put together a wind powered knitting machine which appears to be producing the world’s longest scarf. The wind turns the turbine which runs the needle through the yarn. It actually requires someone to come in and occasionally cut off a human length scarf piece and neaten up the edge but it’s mostly automatic. Speed depends upon wind speed. That’s some green knitting for ya.
