Video about Althea Crome, the miniaturist who knitted Coraline's sweater and gloves for the movie http://danceswithwool.wordpress.com/2009/02/05/miniature-knitter/
great video. shame it was not a bit longer. would have liked to find out a bit more about yarn/thread etc used.
I read in my local paper (Detroit Free Press) that the Father in the movie originally had a University of Michigan (maize and blue) sweater that was replaced with a Michigan State University (green and white) sweater!

By googling "miniature knitting" you can find a lot of really amazing work also by other miniaturists
