Designers Merel Karhof and Emiel Steenhuizen thought up this device, which isn't actually available in stores. They call it the Wind Knitting Factory, and they've installed it in South Kensington Station, London. Their machine creates a continuous tube of knitting -- it's like a giant version of those the wooden knitting spools I used to play with as a kid. (They're apparently called knitting nancies and you can still buy them).
This knitting machine is not to be confused with a crane-powered knitting machine that Neatoramanauts might recall from a while back, where artist Dave Cole used two construction excavators and gigantic knitting needles to knit an American flag-- this one is ever so much more Earth-friendly! Link
