Windy with a chance of scarves

Using wind power is talked about as an alternative for generating energy to be delivered to homes and businesses, but what about putting the wind to use knitting?

The Wind Knitting Factory is an art project that harnesses the wind to power an old knitting machine and whip out a scarf in supposedly a couple of hours. (This page has a short video of the machine in operation.)

This isn't particularly practical, especially with the limited knitting it can do, but it's a charming idea executed in a creative way. That's enough for me.
