You had me at BJÖRK.

alala said...

No worries. We're mostly harmless, despite the abundance of pointy sticks.

April said...

Please tell me he was mispronouncing her name on purpose.

besshaile said...

Oh la! thank you for making my day - heck - my week.

Still laughing

Anea said...

Even a while after having watched that, I keep hearing "BJOOOOOOORRRKKKKK!" in my head. In that voice. >_>

Mary said...

That's my kind of weird.

Rachel P. said...

Ha, I was just listening to "B-jörk" today. Too funny.

lincannon said...

You had me laughing the whole time B-Jork!!!! HaHa way to cute was anyone being a b-jerk?

Miranda Gabrielle said...

LOL - that's great! I'm sharing! :)

Seanna Lea said...

That was awesome. I just spent the last minute giggling like Mad Margaret. So wonderfully kooky.

Renee said...

Ok, what about us crocheters?

Jules said...

Now I'm going to spend the next week (at LEAST) shouting "B-JOOOOORK!" and no one will know why.

This means it's up to you and Stephen to come bust me out of the loony bin when my husband has me committed. :)

O...M...G

it must have been the air there in iceland...yeah, that's it.

(backs away slowly)

Linda Walsh said...

Okay, he loves Bjork. Grand. Now, let's get back to the important stuff...THE LATEST SWEATER, please and thank you.

Sandy said...

I want to go with you guys next time. Besides, I'm going to be yelling BJOOOOORK and nobody is going to get it! I have to go next time!

Kat said...

At the risk of offending B-JÖÖÖÖÖÖRK! fans, I'm seriously disappointed that Björk was not harmed in the making of this PSA. ;)

WonderMike said...

I have no memory of this. I think I need memory repression therapy. BJÖRK!!!!

Ted said...

Who was it heard laughing in the background after you asked "You know this is going on YouTube?"

Robin said...

Yep. Totally weird. Totally, totally weird, but what other way is there to be but totally, awesomely, knitastically weird? :D)

Kristen said...

I wouldn't have knitters any other way but weird!

Ruby said...

Loved it. Thanks for sharing the Bjork movie....

Watercolor said...

ahahhaahaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!

FiberQat said...

oh heavens my abs hurt....

Now Stephen will be assaulted by the entire BMFA crew going "BJORRRRRRK!" You are evil Franklin. I love you.

Redford Phyl said...

Laughing too hard to type! Even made me produce a very unladylike snort.

Rogue Butterfly said...

No words to express how epically awesome this is.

Rachael said...

Thank you. I needed that.

Kat Knits! said...

tatheOMFG!!!! Gonna probably randomly say that in a store or at work sometime this week...

Ragga said...

Love your weirdness and totally understand that the road trip in Iceland drove you to this level of madness!

Anonymous said...

hhhhmmmm.

We're you guys just coming off of some of Iceland's famous libations?

Kath's Yarns said...

Strange, I did not laugh - perhaps because that seems like normal behavior to me! Besides, I'm a big Stephen fan after the flash mob last summer at Sock Summit. I also took his class, which was very good (I tried to take yours but it filled up too fast).

Deb G. said...

Love. How perfectly awesome!

Kate (KnitsInClass) said...

Hmmm... maybe I should be a little bit worried about myself...

Lista said...

My one-year-old son found this to be the funniest thing ever. Clearly, I need to get the boy a set of needles and some nice yarn, because we have a future knitter on our hands!

Peppermint Mocha Mama said...

I'm gonna do that all day now... "Be-jooooooork"... Love it!

kristy said...

Darn thing won't let me peek at it, grumble, moan , bitch,complain.

Mel said...

I had the misfortune of watching this just before bed. Do you realize how hard it is to fall asleep while saying "b'jork!" in your head?

Carrie#K said...

What's so weird about that?

=Tamar said...

Still giggling madly. Going out to dinner with non-knitters. This is going to be difficult.

Lester's Mama said...

LMAO!
Thanks

zenriver said...

You should send this to BJÖRK, she would love it!

knittinggolfer said...

yes, to know stephen is to love him.
too funny, thanks for sharing!

RodPrjónar said...

Hahaha! I had totally forgotten about this!! It is brilliant!

Yvonne said...

Great! All my sweaters ever say is, "You know, that was supposed to be a purl stitch". And they never even tell me that until several rows later.

kathy b said...

so cute. Thanks for the smile Franklin

Anonymous said...

I had to put down my tea, or risk it going on the keyboard. The look on his face, after you casually mention, "You know this is going on YouTube, right?" Priceless....

Nartian knits said...

Oh, Stephen. We love you, but now I'm forever going to mispronounce her name in my head.

Jo said...

*dies of the giggles*

That was AWESOME!! And hysterically funny!!!

Gail said...

You crack me up!

Hoping for an "encore" tomorrow in NYC.

Mya said...

My cat was very concerned with the sweater's singing (I might have had the volume up too loud). :)

akqguy said...

Yes, but we're a proud bunch of wierdos

SharonO said...

Ah, rather like puppeteers.

Peggy said...

I'm so glad I came to the comments. I had no idea what the sweater was saying. I'm assuming the sweater is not Icelandic, because his pronunciation is, uh, poor.

cpeezers said...

That was awesome. My 4 year old came over to see what I was listening today. He is now wandering around the house saying BJÖRK over and over and over. Singing it. Saying it. Mimicking the exact pronunciation.

Miss Knotty said...

I have to say, I saw this the day you posted it up, and as I was ambling through the older posts, I came upon it again. It holds up. I laughed and laughed, a second time. Aaah Stephen, I hope your sweater someday gets to meet B-jork!

Amanda Lyn said...

Oh my god. That was the most awkward sounding video to play in the office this afternoon. Hilarious!

Cody said...

It won't really have success, I consider so.

I had a very identical issue with my device attached steek (my first and probably not the last). I ran out of my row, though not quite as far as the yoke routine. It created for a drunk drift about of a meat, but it still proved helpful well enough to create a awesome cardigan. Of course, I should have selected it out and tried again.
