a mind blowing gingerbread house

Wow! This amazing gingerbread house is not only life size, but knit entirely by hand. The outside of this delectable wool cottage is covered in hand knit candies and the inside is full of all kinds of delightful knit treasures.

The amount of work is astounding. Knit plates, chairs, toys, walls – everything!

Masterminded by British artist Alison Murray, the house incorporates the work of 1,000 individual knitters (including young knitters!). It was created in 2007 as a fundraiser for a local childrens hospital.

Doesn’t it all look sweet enough to eat?
