wind knitting factory

Wind turns the windmill, which runs the giant spool-type knitting device, which lets a tube of knitting flow down into building as it is created, and lengths are cut off to become scarfs.  Love thinking about this.  More info here

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.
