And here I thought this was going to be about knitting WITH heavy metals like Kevlar or picture wire- you can tell what type of music I never listen to!

:smiley: meanwhile Kevlar is actually rather light weight but picture wire - I suppose if I could (and did) knit on a plane with drink straws, one could your a strong picture wire. :rolleyes:

One of the competitors, Emmy, who was wearing the denim vest, did indeed knit with wire for one part of her performance.

(Full disclosure, I was the one in purple.)
