Working at home or huddled together in cafés, women of all ages across Spain have furiously knitted hundreds of blankets to send to war-torn Syria before cold weather begins following an online appeal for help.
Due to the success they have had with recent "slow-TV" epics like a 12-hour prime-time show of a burning fireplace and a solid 13-hours of shearing and knitting, Norway's NRK broadcaster has come up with its next slow epic.
Earlier in the year, Norway offered a 12-hour, prime-time show on local TV of a burning fireplace. Now they have gone one stage further, and will be offering an evening-long program featuring a group of eight people knitting. What could be more cosy?
