The knitting clock project was designed to measure and register time in a three dimensional form to visualise the otherwise visible time factor, which connects us all. The project can best be described as a merge of a knitting machine and a cuckoo clock. The knitting of a mesh marks every passing of a half hour, a full day is registered in 48 meshes and a year results in a scarf approximately two metres long.

365 recently won The Time to Design competition; an international design award which focuses on the needs of young design talents in the beginning of their career. Designers from 34 countries applied, but the jury's choice was the 28 year olds project.
