Finland hosted the first ever Heavy Metal Knitting Contest

Heavy Metal and knitting seem to be part of two completely different worlds but in Finland the number of both Heavy Metal enthusiasts and knitters appear to be extraordinarily high. That's why a competition, combining both activities was organised.

Participants could be seen knitting on stage while a Heavy Metal band played in the background, offering a spectacular show. In the end Giga Body Metal from Japan showed the most convincing ''Heavyknittinghood'' and won the competition.

Watch the video to see the curious but outstanding performances.
