Talk About Knitting on the Town....

You all really need to go and look at this incredible article from The Daily Mail- it features a group of ladies from Mersham, Kent who have spent years knitting the entire village! The pictures of the knitted buildings are compared against their real life counterparts, and the details are incredible. Go look!

Wow! That is such a cool idea. There's a lot of interesting knit-replicas I've seen floating around on the internet (knit motorcycle, coral reef, etc...) but this one is my favourite. Thanks for the link :)

Wow, the bus shelter and the cricket team are my favourite bits in that village. It's such a cute idea, go ladies.

I LOVED reading that - thank you so much for posting! Gives me a goal for my later years...how I would love to join a group knitting a village! This is my favorite quote from the article:

'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'

HA!
