Knitted Village of Mersham

The forty ladies of the Afternoon Club in Mersham, England, knitted a complete replica of their village over the course of 23 years. There are flowers in the gardens and cars on the roads to capture a slice of community life. The project will be sold in pieces to benefit the local hall.

We’ve already seen San Francisco made out of Jell-O and the Farnsworth House made out of gingerbread, both of which were impressive, labor-intensive projects. This village took 23 years to make, and multiple knitters. It’s really mind-boggling.

Via Boing Boing, with special thanks to Matt Hunter Ross for pointing it out to me.
