News: English Ladies Knit Entire Village

English Ladies Knit Entire Village

According to the UK's Daily Mail, a group of ladies have lovingly knitted their entire village.

"...A small group of very twinkly ladies started 23 years ago with a couple of cottages and some pigs, and ended up creating more than 60 properties, complete with wheelie bins, outdoor loos, gas tanks, cars in the driveways and even a smart red telephone box."

That's right, everything, even the church gravestones. Knitter Margaret Goldup says, "The lady who did the church knitted most of the graves when she was on a sunbathing holiday in Spain, which gave the other guests a bit of a jolt."

The village is true to scale, thanks to knitter Sheila Stead's late husband, Ron Stead. Ron surveyed the village, photographing all the properties, and ultimately producing accurate cardboard templates of each building.

Check out some photos of the knitted buildings with their paired sources below.
