A first-of-its-kind knitting event is being held in Joensuu, Finland on July 11. The first ever Heavy Metal World Knitting Championships combines Finland’s love for heavy metal music (there are 50 heavy metal bands per 100,000 Finnish citizens) and needlework. To enter the competition, knitters are required to submit a video of them knitting along to the song Fight Or Die by Joensuu thrash metal band Maniac Abductor (free download available here). The 15 most engaging performances will be invited to the World Championships.
