German industrial designer Siren Elise Wilhelmsen has created the ‘365’ knitting clock.
The designer’s objective was to make time tangible and visible.Â The clock features a 48-needle knitting machine.Â Working clockwise, of course, each day it works a round, and over a year, creates aÂ 2m-long scarf.
The clock was exhibited at the DMY International Design Festival in Berlin in June.

The Jumpers & Jazz Festival kicks off July 15 in Queensland, Australia. The festival is a charming and eclectic mix of jazz and textile sculpture. There are contests for both yarn-bombing and sweaters. 150 trees are slated to be decorated, and there’s a wide range of musical gigs to enjoy over the two-week festival.
While we’re on the topic of yarnbombing, Knitta, Please
has been spotted around NYC, working their yarny magic.
And more great yarnbombing here and here.

Brilliant knitterly tool pointed out by a reader: printable rulers! Basic ones
and more sophisticated ones
. Print them out and laminate them or cover them in tape. They’re light, and they don’t take up too much room in your knitting bag.
