Purl Jam: The Heavy Metal Knitting Championship

Heavy metal and knitting fo together like peas and carrots. This past weekend, Joensuu, Finand hosted the world's first heavy metal knitting championship. Read about it at Stuff. 
With stage names such as Woolfumes, Bunny Bandit and 9'' Needles, the participants shared a simple goal: to showcase their knitting skills while dancing to heavy metal music in the most outlandish way possible.

"It's ridiculous but it's so much fun,'' said Heather McLaren, an engineering PhD student who travelled from Scotland for a shot at the 'world title'. "When I saw there was a combination of heavy metal and knitting, I thought 'that's my niche.'''
