Knitting French News

The blog "Delit Maille" posts the news as pictures of little knitted figures. Anna, who knits and blogs, has a delightful and wry sense of humor. If you can't read French, you can learn a little about the site by reading this post from the BBC.

By the way, if you want to knit your own little figures, there are several sources to help:
Knit Your Own Royal Wedding is merely one of several useful such titles by Fiona Goble.
You might Knit Your Own Dog or Knit Your Own Cat with the help of Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne.
If you want to recreate history, try Knitted Historical Figures by Jan Messent. Jan can also give you advice on knitting animals, fairies, and gardens -- very useful if you'd like to knit up episodes of Once Upon a Time or Grimm.
If you'd like to re-create the Oscars, try Knitted Icons by Carol Meldrum.
For generic people, try Knit This Doll! by Nicki Moulton.
For slightly larger-scale figures, try Knitted Pirates, Princesses, Witches, Wizards and Fairies: With Outfits & Accessories by Annette Hefford.
