New world record for fastest knitter
Hi all,

I had to post this here. A lady on another forum had a link to a "fastest knitter" challenge:

http://www.bhkc.co.uk/data/fastest.htm

This weekend, a Dutch woman took up the challenge and beat Hazel Tindall's Record of 255 stitches in 3 minutes (4mm needles with 60 stitches cast on). Her name is Miriam Tegels, and she knit 257 stitches in 3 minutes (4mm needles with 60 stitches cast on).

Apparently photos of the event will appear on this website:

Anyone here want to take up the challenge?

(PS Count me out!!!)
