The 365 Knitting Clock by Siren Elise Wilhelmsen is another knitting nancy based object, and it is completely different to superblues life size sitting sculpture.  Siren, a Norwegian product designer, residing in Berlin, designed this clock, measuring time through the length of the knitting. Each day one round is knitted and at the end of the year a two meter long scarf has been created. Knitting for the patient but also a very poetic way of measuring time.

I love the idea and it also makes a little shiver run down my spine.  Maybe your time is up if you miss putting in a new ball of yarn at the end of the year? It reminds me of the story of the Norns- the legendary beings spinning the thread of the fate of human kind.

  1. Hi there! Thanks so much for your comment on my pregnancy post the other and for your very generous offer of your very similar sailor maternity pattern. I'm kind of thinking maybe those styles are a bit tent-like after all, what do you think? Thanks again, I really appreciate the offer.

    All the best
