Unknitting the Unravelled Sleeve of Care
December 19, 2012 10:14 AM Subscribe
A 22-year old student, Imogen Hedges of London's Kingston University, has invented an unknitting machine
to ravel knitted items and wind the yarn into skeins for re-use. I do have my doubts about how much time this machine would actually save, but the machine, which is made out of a bicycle, is a very clever contraption and a lot of fun to watch in action, and its facility for steaming the yarn as it winds it is ingenius.
