Wind-powered knitting machine

With the power of the wind, a knitting machine knits from the outside towards the inside of a building. The knitted material is harvested from time to time and rounded-off in individually packaged scarves. Each scarf has its own label which tells you in how much time it has been knitted and on which date.

Fascinating idea.
It’s amazing that so little energy can produce such a large amount of knitting!

You kiddin’? While the idea is cool, the execution is that you have an antique circular sock machine outdoors exposed to the weather?
