That's why it uses only two shades of wool, because knitting more than two 
colours takes a lot more time. Knitting one frame in two colours is easy: 
you just put the punchcard in the machine and then you drag the carriage 
left and right until the frame is done, whereas for more colours you may 
have to spend a lot of time swapping colours at each scanline... I don't 
know today's machines, but I suspect it's all the same, otherwise they'd 
have used more colours.

This music video was made in Montréal, btw.
