Purl Jam: Finland’s Heavy Metal Knitting Championship

I saw this today and had to share it with you.  Finland has hosted the first Heavy Metal Knitting Championship.  According to an AP News feed, participants shared a common goal: “to showcase their knitting skills while dancing to heavy metal music in the most outlandish way possible.”  There were participants from nine countries, including the US, Japan, and Russia.  The winning team, from Japan, featured sumo wrestlers and crazy heavy metal knitting.  Watch it and smile:

I am still on holiday, where I am not doing much knitting, but am enjoying beautiful weather, friends, food, and scenery.  Perhaps next year I should holiday in Finland and get Doug and the girls to accompany me in some heavy metal knitting?
