World's Fastest Knitter

According to the Guinness World Record's site, the world's fastest knitter is Miriam Tegels of the Netherlands, who set a world record by knitting 118 stitches in one minute back in 2006.

However, Tegels may have a serious contender in Scotland's Hazel Tindall, who in 2008 won an international knitting contest by knitting 262 stitches in three minutes.

Both these women seem like such mild, gentle types, but you just know that they're channeling some titanic aggression and drive to excel into their knitting. And I'm going to slink away and see if I can't finish the sweater I've been working on for the past month.

Coming up: the Creative Knitting Spring 2013 issue review is set to publish tomorrow!
