Norwegian designer Siren Elise Wilhelmsen has made a clock that knits. In fact, knitting stitch by stitch is how the clock represents the passage of time. In a year the clock knits one two-meter-long scarf. Wilhelmsen calls the clock "365."
"Now the past can be carried out in the future and the upcoming year is hiding in a new spool of thread, still unknitted," writes Wilhelmsen on her Web site.
If the clock knitted just a little bit faster, this would be perfect. Not to mention the solution to all of my holiday-present needs.
