This is one ad that I didn't mind watching. I really liked the colours of the cowl the last lady was wearing.


I love the sweater under the orange waders. That's one awesome collection of knits!


That little girl's yellow hat is so great! I love the flowers at the top instead of pom poms. The Mom's cowl is pretty great too.


Yep, the one under the orange waders for sure! I love how bold & contrast-y it is. Cooool.

I agree with Jenny. And I love the woman's cowl, too. What a cool place Iceland must be.


this is delightful!


I love it -- thanks for sharing!


love this commercial. i wish more people that i know would appreciate stuff like this. at least some of us do. thanks for sharing.


Love it! When I saw it I didn't catch that it was in Iceland but I saw the knits. How could you not!


Made my day! Thanks for spreading the joy!

The third Lopapeysa. I must knit it.

Yes, I noticed the commercial too. Loved the multiple knits: the Mom is wearing not only a sweater but a knit scarf too.


I need that chart pattern for orange wader sweater NOW!!!

I liked the song so I looked up from my knitting...!!!!.... freaked, pushed record, and took dozens of pictures of my cheap TV with the cheap camera on my cheap phone (satellite costs Money and I mostly listen, because, duh, knitting). It took me over half an hour because....if you don't know why, it's because you're still an infant who won't be able to imagine such a task until you wear bifocals yourself! Thank you SO much for posting your FAR superior photos.

Just got here via a thread on Ravelry about the commercial. I've seen it a couple of times but didn't pay any attention to what is was for. I was so distracted by the scenery. And I didn't even notice the sweaters because I was so distracted by the scenery - LOL! We spent 5 days in Iceland and after a couple of days the sweaters just become part of the scenery and it's all wonderful.

But the really weird thing is - my husband has been shopping for a new printer for me so we went to Costco today to buy the one he chose, brought it home, et voila! It's the same printer. I didn't even realize the commercial was for a printer! much less for an HP that has all the features I wanted.

And Iceland is every bit as wonderful as It looks in that great commercial. Drop everything except your knitting and GO!


But what about the lyrics? I can't understand the last line--except don't I hear a faint British accent? Or Aussie? Or ???


OK,I hate to be That Person, but the Noro is Faux-ro. Rowan Tapestry or something like? Nice but the color changes are too few and too regular for Noro.

I bet if you got Ragga on this she could find out who did it in 5 minutes. Everybody doesn't know everybody else, but if they chat for 5 minutes they can figure out how they're related.

LOVE IT. xox Kay


great commercial and the song is performed by Fun Boy Three with Bananarama. They are doing a cover of T'ain't What You Do (It's the Way That You Do It).


After hearing that commercial, did anybody else sing "Hey, Macarena!"?
