I have to pass along this great animation made by artist Charlotte Blacker. She's a stop motion animator from Yorkshire. She created this little film as her graduation project for the University of Central Lancashire and it went on to win her a Royal Television Society Award.
All of the characters and backgrounds are knitted; Charlotte knitted everything with the help of her sister, mom and her grandmother, who taught her how to knit when she was a kid. :)
Good luck with all of your future endeavors, Charlotte!
