    The article describes the knitter as Margaret Seaman, 91, and her creation as "Knittingale Hospital."
    The three-metre-square creation features four wards, including an A&E department and separate areas for men, women and children, complete with miniature beds, blankets, chairs and cupboards, all of which are knitted.

    Seaman also knitted an X-ray unit, fracture clinic, cafe, helicopter landing pad, car park and flower beds.

    The set is finished with 58 tiny woollen figures, including doctors, nurses and patients, which were created by Seaman’s friend, Jan.

    “It is a queer thing. In a time of great need, when powerful leadership is demanded, the people—confused and excited—hear only the strident voices of the audacious, and refuse to listen to the voice of wisdom which, being wise, is temperate.”
