The First-Ever Heavy Metal Knitting Championship Took Place

 

Not sure what took so long for this competition to be put together but we are better off for having it. Finland just hosted the very first Heavy Metal Knitting World Championships last week.

That’s correct, knitters from around the world competed for the crown. The competition saw participants from nine countries, including the United States, Japan, and Russia, put on inspired performances full of theatrics, passion and drama and the jury struggled to agree upon a winner.

The premise is simple, get on stage in front of a heavy metal band, dance and knit while they play behind you. The audience then votes and you crown a champion.

It was a Japanese performance by the five-person Giga Body Metal team that clinched the title with a show featuring crazy sumo wrestlers and a man dressed in a traditional Japanese kimono.

Organizers have already said they will be back next year for the second Heavy Metal Knitting Championship.
