Australia wins back the Back to Back Trophy

The Spinning Knitwits team competing at Tocal Agricultural College, Paterson, NSW handspun and knitted a jumper from sheep’s back to theirs in just over six hours to win this years International Back to Back Wool Challenge.

Only Five minutes and Five Seconds separated them from the Toronto Spiders competing in Canada but not enough to break the Guinness world record time of 4 hours, 51 minutes and 14 seconds, held by the Merriwa Jumbucks
Toronto had a five minute penalty so in reality, the margin was just five seconds.

Fourteen teams of blade shearers, handspinners and knitters entered at
twelve different venues around the world in the fifteenth Challenge, completed on Saturday 13th June 2009.

Each team consisted of a blade shearer, a country of origin sheep and seven
handspinners (with spinning wheels) and knitters who follow the identical
Challenge rules and pattern to knit the adult size jumper.

A team from Free State, South Africa competed for the first time at Bloemfontein.
Fourteen teams from six different countries competed in this years Challenge.

Each team not only promoted wool world wide but raised substantial
funds for Cancer Research.

Countries competing this year included Australia, Canada, Japan, UK, South Africa and the Czech Republic.

First :- Newcastle Spinning Knitwits, Tocal, NSW 6 hours 3 minutes 20 seconds.

Second:- Toronto Spiders, Toronto, Ontario, Canada 6 hours 8 minutes 25 seconds.
