They Knit the Queen

So I was feeling pretty good about finishing a pair of socks over the weekend--having taken just under 2 months--when I saw this today:

They knit the Queen of England as she appeared on her coronation day in 1953.  PLUS 60 villagers to recreate scenes of the times.  I truly hope a museum snaps these up and they go on display forever.  AND that they include how much knitting time it took, because that's my first question.  Do you think they started the day after?
