Behold the Inaugural Heavy Metal Knitting World Championship


Finland held the first-ever Heavy Metal Knitting World Championship, and it was about as bizarre as you'd expect. Competitors are on stage knitting and dancing while a heavy metal band performs behind them.

It's part cosplay too, because they're all wearing crazy costumes. The winners came all the way from Japan and featured a couple of sumo wrestlers and a "knitting man" wearing a traditional Japanese kimono.
