The gifted loved knitting and was part of a circle of knitters, so she started this curious project. In fact, this is only the beginning of the wonderful initiative. The woman came with her amazing resulting home created with all the details.

The creation was well received by her friends and relatives, so she decided to go far. So, with a group of women, they tried to knit the whole village of Clochmills, which is their hometown. Thus, the women met every Wednesday to pursue their unusual but sunny project. The result was approved by all the inhabitants of the village.
