    That’s hilarious! It looks like they are in a subway station.

    I love Time-Keeper-Guy in his knitwear!

  3. Andrea says:

    That’s crazy (In a good way) though it left me feeling like a fumbling 4 year old.

  4. Jennifer says:

    Yup, I’m a pokey knitter. That was fun to watch!

  5. Wannietta says:

    It’s she amazing!! I love the music too. I’ll have the privilege of meeting & knitting against her at the Speed Knitting Competition at Knit Out 2008 in MN next month.

    GO Wannietta! GO GO!

    We got your back!

    (My tiny slow knitting hands clap Real Loud! Cheers! Cheers!)

    Hee hee, this made my Monday!! My Mom is from Germany, and you should see her go….I thought she was the fastest knitter I had ever seen until I saw this!!

  8. Toby Wollin says:

    Wow. That’s just amazing. And I thought I was hot stuff because I won a contest years ago at a spinning meeting by knitting with rubber gloves on! Those hands were flying!

  9. Mary says:

    Oh my gosh — that’s amazing!

  10. Carla says:

    I can’t help but think of the gal in The Last Knit. Some of these women speed along like she did. Me? If only…

  11. Caroline says:

    But are they enjoying themselves? Do they ever stop and stroke the work and smile at how good it feels? They’re fun to watch, but I’m content to be The Knitter Who Takes 3 Months to Knit A Sock.

    Wow, that’s just amazing, hubby thought the it the camera was sped up at first.

  13. Carol says:

    OMG, that’s insane! Not looking even!

    OMG, that’s insane! Not looking even!

  15. Wanda says:

    A speed knitting event sounds fun. Not that I’m a competitor.

  16. Karen B. says:

    First she was the faster knitter in the Netherlands, now the world? She knits like the wind! I love the video and soundtrack, too.

    Gee, that was inspirational! I was trying to see what the needles of choice were. I’m an Addi-Turbo fan, but it looked like Miriam’s were the coated Aluminum.
