I thought some of you might find it interesting to see a short video of the knitting clock in action. I'm simulating multiple days here, one complete rotation (day) at a time, with a short pause in between.

This is a lot louder than the final clock will be, because I'm using faster and more powerful double steps for these steps. The actual on-the-hour stitches will use quieter, slower, microsteps.

@kyle This is really cool!
That's an HDMI port inside isn't it 😉

@golemwire Thanks! Yeah, the stepper motor is being controlled by an old Raspberry Pi I had lying around + an Adafruit Motor Hat.
