Finland Hosted the World’s First Heavy Metal Knitting World Championship and It Was as Weird as It Sounds
Heavy metal and knitting have always been natural companions — it’s just that no one has ever thought to combine them. Not until now, that is. On July 11, Joensuu, Finland, hosted the first-ever Heavy Metal Knitting World Championship, and if you’re new to the competition, the rules are pretty simple: Knit while listening to heavy metal. The competition attracted around 200 people from around the world, primarily fans of heavy metal and knitting.
