Heavy Metal Knitting?
25th October 2019
We all know knitting is a wonderfully quiet and meditative activity, right? It isn’t the kind of thing you would do with say, a heavy metal soundtrack pulsing behind you, would you? Well, prepare to be surprised, as the first-ever Heavy Metal Knitting World Championship has just loudly played out in eastern Finland.

‘It’s ridiculous but it’s so much fun.’
Taking up their needles, 12 finalists from around the world danced to heavy metal whilst displaying their yarncraft skills in outlandish yet creative ways. Although Japanese band Giga Body Metal took the final prize, already bands are casting on and tuning up ready for next year.
