Knitting machines galore since one is never enough, photo tutorials, and knits gone wild

When You Are Tired Of Knitting Sweaters, You Can Always Make A Music Video

This has to be seen by a knitter to be truly appreciated.

The Montreal band, Tricot Machine, used 720 separate pieces of intarsia knitting to produce the video for its single, Les Peaux de Lièvres.

Since I don’t speak French, I have no clue what the song is about. It is pretty cool to watch machine knitted fabric in a totally different medium.

Wow, this video is amazing. They must have knit each piece, then photographed each one and put them into a video format. 720 pieces. Wow!

Indeed, I fully agree with Pam Carlson. It is very original! You even can see the expressions on the face! Amazing!

yes The video is wonderful!

I could only aspire to knit even one some day ( just bought a singer700 memomatic used and I’m learning)

word for word translation would not make any sense in english.
It talks about the coming of the winter season. How the snow blankets the asphalt with white, and the snow flakes are partying ,dancing in the winter wind.
how people are anticipating the joys of winter

most of the scenes are of Montréal.
Cross on Mount Royal, the toboggan run in Mount Royal park an the climbing of the roof mast of the Olympic stadium.
I believe the couple depicted are the song writers
here are the French words:
T’as les joues rouge boréale
Tes couettes noires virent au blanc comme l’asphalte
Y tombe des peaux d’lièvres sur Montréal

On s’éclipse sur party
La neige crisse sous nos pieds
Les flocons dansent doucement
Dans le vent

Mais c’pas la faute du temps
Si j’frisonne
Et nos mains se repèrent
Et nos coeurs s’accelèrent

On s’dit rien et pourtant
On s’comprend
Sous les premiers murmures
De l’hiver

Le désir nous harcèle
On court par les ruelles
Ça fait tellement longtemps qu’on s’attend

La nuit s’annonce chaude et si belle

T’as les joues rouge boréale
Tes couettes noires virent au blanc comme l’asphalte
Y tombe des peaux d’lièvres sur Montréal

There is an English translation on you tube now at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dJbuBCQ5YU.
The words are as lovely as the music.
