This Woman's Knitting Might Make You Actually Vote

This is a good yarn.

Pat Wilson, who lives in the seaside town of Deal in Kent, spent hours knitting little party leaders that sit in his house window.

"The bodies and clothes (didn't take) too long but getting the expressions can take a LONG time and plenty of midnight oil gets burnt getting it JUST right," she told BuzzFeed News. "I don't always succeed but hopefully most get pretty close."


Wilson told BuzzFeed News that after all this painstaking effort her needles will start working on the coming royal baby:

"Planned next (not forgetting a new royal baby due any day) is an Alice in Wonderland window in November (my favourite childhood book) to coincide with the 150th anniversary of its publication."
