Baby knitting ad

This ad was in my Sunday paper's magazine.
A baby knitting.
I couldn't understand what the ad was about so I have just looked up the web address and as far as I can make out, it is for baby car seats!!
I think it's a bit of a slight against us young and trendy knitters!!
What do you think??

Aprica or something like that. The website is www.laythemflat.co.uk
There is a movie but I couldnt access it.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've just seen the movie. A kid enters the room from the LHS after a ball. You just see what sounds like a zimmerframe coming across the room, with a baby pushing it. The baby is dressed up like an old man and is making very slow progress with a squeaking walker to get to the ball. The tag line goes - don't let your baby get old ahead of time. Which I guess is the reference to the baby knitting aswell. So, who wants to email the marketing company and let them know how out of step they are!

Old before my time?!?!?!? Obviously they don't know that knitting is the key to long and youthful life! It's the new yoga, don't they know!

I think we should send a joint email to them with pictures of our knitting group asking if we look old before our time, and refer them to the world wide web of bloggers also!! In fact I'm going to post about it on the UK Handknitters board also

Ok, just looking at the page out of a magazine without know what it's about is funny. Not belly laughing funny but funny. It's hip to knit. It's no longer for grandmas only. Infact, I havent' come across a grandma knitting in yrs. Just all of us knitting bloggers. I am 40 yrs old, my bloggers are 20's up to maybe 48 yr old.

Not exactly young or trendy but have knitted for decades and it should not be associated with being old or boring ..it is an art ,beautiful ,wonderful things are created .Anyone of any age can do it........you are quite right.
