Knitting in the Movies: Miniature Knitter for Coraline

It’s called “microknitting” , and Althea Crome has hit the big time as knitter of Coraline’s tiny sweater and gloves for the movie based on Neil Gaimon’s fantasy novel. Althea is a full sized adult human who knits miniatures. Her work is painstaking and positively amazing! Seeing this video has lit a fire under me to get out there ASAP to see Coraline, unusual for me because I generally wait for the DVD release. Maybe I’ll take my mom…

    Coraline is a wonderful movie! I’m completely fascinated by all the behind the scenes work, but the movie it’s self is terrific. You’ll become an instant fan of Neil Gaiman and Coraline!
