Den Store Strikkedyst

Or the Great Knitting Challenge, is a new tv show from Denmark.
It's a knitting contest and in this first episode the 8 knitters get two challenges.
Knit a baby sock in two hours and something to wear around the neck which says something about your personality (shawl, scarf, cow) in three hours. 4 of them will have to leave and 4 stays for the next challenge. Next week 8 more knitters will have the same challenges, and 4 more will stay and 4 will have to leave.
Looking forward to the next challenges to see what they will have to make.

The judges are Vithard Villumsen and Christel Seyfarth.

  1. That is awesome! I wish I had a show like that here!

  2. I've seen the Baking and Sewing contests on BBC; I would love it if they had a knitting challenge show! Hope this one gets good ratings. (Mind you, it doesn't look too dynamic with them all sitting like that...)
