Crazy but cool! I noted that it was made by a group of knitters!
Well, that's neat! If they sell it, the proceeds will prolly fund their charity. Most knitter groups seem to work on big projects for their favorite charity.

My LYS was working on a PINK "Great American Aran Arghan" for the Breast Cancer Research charity.

Thanks for posting this most interesting knitted village!!!

I liked how some of the cars were almost as big as the buildings they were in front of.

Well a Mini-Cooper or a SmartCar would otherwise require micro-knitting, wouldn't it?

Or perhaps those cars were misshaped Hummers?
