Knitters in a twist

The American Anti Defamation League has got the needle over a recently published British knitting book which features an Adolf Hitler doll. The book, by Rachael Matthews, bizarrely includes instructions on knitting figures of historical dictators and has a picture of a Hitler doll adorning its cover. "It shows a profound failure by Ms Matthews to understand the horror of Hitler's Nazi machine," raged ADL national director Abraham H Foxman.

Well, it certainly seems a bit loopy.
