May Etchenson from County Antrim in beautiful Northern Ireland once had a great idea – to knit a model of her own house.
The woman loves to knit, so she took up this curious project. But that was only the beginning.
May showed her friends the resulting house (she is a member of a circle of knitters), made in great detail.
After that, the women decided to go further and by joint efforts to knit the whole village of Clochmills, where they live.
Meeting every Wednesday, they gradually realized their unusual plan.
The result was a full layout of the city, including all the main objects: the post office, pubs and shops, as well as the old shirt factory and the flax mill, around which the village grew.
And also a playground and garden plots with planted cauliflower.
Mrs. Etchenson’s husband, Edgar, helped the enthusiasts find funds to buy fabrics and tools. The model of the village is made of knitted fabric.
This outstanding work of knitting art has already been seen by one and a half thousand people (with a village population of only 1 thousand).
The happy creators of this masterpiece want to raise £3,000 to donate the proceeds to a charity.
We wish these lovely ladies further success in this noble cause!
