The 360 Knitting clock was designed and made by artist Siren Elise Wilhelmsen in 2010. It knits twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week with no rest. After exactly 365 days, the clock has knitted a scarf measuring two-meters in length and runs out of thread on it’s spool. This clock was created to make a physical representation of time, and when the spool is replaced each year it symbolizes the future that is not yet created.


2. During WWI, Knitting scarves was a patriotic war duty


While many went off to war, it was seen as the patriotic duty of those left behind to knit scarves, hats, and gloves for the soldiers stationed in cold areas. This saved the lives of many men in the army, since they had no other method of getting warm and dry clothes.
