One more thing today.

I just came across a link to a British Knitted Village. This incredible model was made by an Afternoon Club. I'm not exactly sure what that is, but I'm guessing it's a lot of older ladies getting together and knitting crazy cool things.

The entire project took over 23 years to complete by the 40 members of the club. Each of the buildings in their town of Mersham, near Ashford, is included and the details they included are absolutely countless. Now that they're all finished, the pieces will be auctioned off and all proceeds will go towards their local town hall.


  1. This is awesome! I think there's a market here. You know how some people buy paintings of their own house? What about a knitted model? Much cooler.

  2. That's exactly what I was thinking. Well, expect for the fact that it took them 23 YEARS to complete the whole thing. Hopefully they only worked on it at Afternoon CLub designated meeting times.

    I think this is what my parents are getting from me next Christmas though. haha.
