Finland, the most metal of all nations (there is approximately 1 metal band per 2,000 people), held a competition among the greatest headbanging knitters of the world. With guitars, drums, needles, and yarn, these metalheads tapped into the dark river that flows through every human soul. Stuff reports:
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 a great release,'' said Elise Schut, a 35-year-old nurse from Michigan who performed with her 71-year-old mother and 64-year-old family friend, Beth Everson, who added that "knitting is such a meditative activity but now it's energetic and heart pumping".
