  7. Ya know, you two are strange, funny, odd….but it WORKS! Rock on!

  8. What a hoot!!! I’m not sure how you all kept a straight (and very expressive) face through that delightful yet heartbreaking song. I understand the need to credit your makeup artist but you forgot to credit wardrobe.
    I’m going to watch it again!

  9. Well, my mistake was watching that at work…
    Well played, ladies, and priceless!

    ***walks away hummin’ “Pardon me, I didn’t knit that for you….”***

  12. Oh, no, I’m having flashbacks to Saturday nights, circa 1969, being forced to watch the Porter Waggoner show with my folks! We won’t even talk about Hee Haw. On the other hand, this look really works for you two! May you guys could make it permanent?

  13. Best. Book. Promotion.
    Ever! What a great start to
    this blah old hump day.

  14. Good Lord, ladies, you are KUKY! What a funny way to start my day.

  15. That. Is. Awesome.

  16. I am cryin for you dears because yer video ain’t playing on my computer. Went to You Tube and could not find it. If you can — help! Jo

  17. I have managed to pick myself up of the floor. Barely. Wow is that funny/cool/awesome!

  18. Oh my, I have found my new soul sisters. Can’t wait to send the link to my daughter and son to give them a further terrifying glimpse into what knitters can become. I LOVE it! And my children will be mortified. So what else is new?

  20. Love.it!

  21. That was fantastic!!! We never knew the two of you had such good voices. Thanks for making me smile early this morning. lol

  22. I’ve watched it like three times already and posted it to my blog and my hair’s still wet. Later I might have to transcribe the lyrics while tears quietly run down my cheeks, but for now I’d better dry my hair. Thank you for the October surprise. xox

  23. Wow!! That is some spectacular Nashville-ing. Love it!

  24. Oh. My. Gosh. I love the outfits, the hair, the makeup, (the EARRINGS!) the close-up during the spoken interlude, and the look into the distance at the end. You just made my morning.

  25. Hilarious!!!!!! I especially like the Sarah Palin influenced hair. [I haven't decided whether she is a cone head or whether that's a nuclear war head on her noggin...pointed at Russia, of course.]
    I think you should forward your video to the Boss and see if he would be interested in booking you as an opening act for his next tour. LOL

  26. Brava! Encore!!!!

  27. too funny ya’ll!
    love them earrings

  28. America’s Got Talent here y’all come! Yee haw! Fortunately I didn’t set off the sprinkler system at work with my lighter.(You know I had it lit to sway along with the music.)

  29. I love you guys! That is totally brilliant.
    Will you be singing it at your book promotion appearances??

  30. Your kids are gonna kill you, I swear! For me, utter hilarity. You two are too funny. ‘I was swatchin’ but it grew’ too much.
    Excellent voices ladies. The whole bit was weird, wacky and wonderful!

  31. WOW! Love it, ladies!
    I’m going to be singing your tune all day…

  32. Mercy. This absolutely made my day! I wanna be you guys when I grow up.

  33. Ladies (and Merle) you are indeed spreading joy through the knitting world. Thank you.

  34. Ladies (and Merle) you are indeed spreading joy through the knitting world. Thank you.

  35. Oh. My. God.
    Tour dates please.

  36. It’s a bright new day in country music! Bring on the Mason-Dixon Singers and watch the fans come running. :)

  37. Pardon me, but maybe because I live in San Francisco, home of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, but you two look like a couple of knitting trannies. What a hoot!

  38. Great song, great presentation! Thanks for that. But I need a clue: Kay? Ann? Left? Right? Ann? Kay? Thanks!

  39. Well, that said it all! Bravo!

  40. Woo-hoo!! Rock on girls! Y’all have captured the best of so many worlds. This is totally priceless! Totally fun! All this time, I thought you were only knitters! Ha!

  41. OMG – that was the best!!! I seriously needed that today!!

  42. Love it – love everything about it – the outfits, the hair, the lyrics! “Row by row, stitch by stitch I was scratching an itch!” Woo Hoo!!!

  43. OMG! Just played this at work and actually spit coffee on my monitor I was laughing so hard!
    Joyce OMG! Just played this at work and actually spit coffee on my monitor I was laughing so hard!
    Joyce <= Deep in the heart of Dixie, in Alabama

  44. Simply wonderful! Brava!

  45. Marvelous! And you know, the outfits and hair would work equally well for a B-52’s send-up! Hmmmm… You ARE living in your own Private Dishcloth!

  46. Lawsy, I predict this will be in the top 100 country western charts in no time. too marvelous.
    Now I have an earworm. “Pardon me, I didn’t knit that for youuuuuu…..”
    /diane

  47. Will you be a mah funeral y’all. You see I just died laughing.
    Beautiful! Brava!!! Molto benne, tutti frutti!

  48. Oh my gosh! Didn’t know you guys were talented singers as well! Love it:)

  49. Whoa! That was the best thing I’ve seen today. =)

  50. L. O. L.

  51. P.E.R.F.E.C.T.

  52. That’s right up there with my favorite knitting animation. Loved it.

  53. Hilarious! I’m sure glad I now have an office with a door instead of a cubicle. Now no one hears the giggles and chortles while my foot taps along with the music. Otherwise, the guys in white coats would be here soon. lol

  54. Oh, marvellous! Love the red wig, the whole lot. Hoo-ey!

  55. I just peed in my pants!
    You better wear those wigs at Rhinebeck

  56. Will you be performing at YarnCon? lol

  57. Wonderful!! Wonderful!! I laughed and laughed. The hair, the gowns! Oh, my! You hit the mark with this one1 Brilliant marketing! And, you two can really sing. Thanks so much for the best laugh in a long time. I love your books, and now your song!

  58. MULTI-talented!

  59. Good Gawd!! I just spewed coffee all over my keyboard. :)

  60. MULTI-talented!

  61. Hilarious!! You two are amazing… and that song definitely shows the creative talents of Mr. Hazard! What a hoot!!

  62. OMG that was awesome! Thanks for brightening my day — I needed it!

  63. Bravo. Really. Just … bravo!

  64. That is so great!! Awesome job!!!!

  65. FANTASTIC! You made my day. And just think, it will live on the internet forever! Well, maybe you don’t want to think about that too much.
    Knit on ladies.

  66. Oh, my!!! THAT was wonderful! Writers, knitters extrordinaire, and now singers/actors… what’s next? Fantastic job ladies… that was the biggest smile I’ve had so far today (and that’s saying a lot!) Thank you!
    P.S. How many takes did it take to get through that without cracking up? :)

  67. Two words:
    RING TONE!

  68. Too fabulous! And such talented voices to boot! Thank you for the laughs! The hair, the makeup, the dresses were so over the top, it was wonderful! Pardon me for saying it but you two looked like dragqueens!!!! (I hope you take that as a compliment!)

  69. OMG, that was FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!
    I feel like I’m back in 1968… or 73?…
    Have you two ever worn that much makeup ever? ever?
    Fabulous!!!
    Karen P.

  70. OMG…this was too fabulous!

  71. Just awesome! haha!

  72. Just awesome! haha!

  73. That was AWESOME, ladies! :)

  74. OMG, you girls are a hoot! I can only hope your next book comes with a CD…

  75. And ya’ll name checked Elizabeth Zimmerman. Genius! *applause*
    Nearly in tears on my lunchbreak here…

  76. Oh, wow, this is just too, too fantastic!! Thank you so much!

  77. You gals R.O.C.K…..that was a HOOT! You should be the play of the day on YouTube! When’s the album coming out? Will you be singing also at book signings? We’re lining up already! Thanks for the smile today!

  78. YOU GALS ROCK!!! Truly inspiring. and brilliant. and hilarious.

  79. wait…this wasn’t serious?

  80. Oh please, tell me I can download that song somewhere!

  81. That may be the best thing I’ve ever seen, in a life time of amazing-seen-things.

  82. Words fail me.

  83. Bless your hearts! I love it. I have not stopped laughing yet. What’s even better, ya’ll can actually sing. Thank you for the entertainment.
    Also, love, love, love the new book. My biggest problem is trying to decide what project to do first.

  84. (Wild Applause from internetland)
    You ladies are fabulous! I’m VERY impressed with the singing (who knew!) and I’m waiting for the album! You’ve created a whole new musical genre, “Fiber Arts”. :-)

  85. That is some REALLY big hair.

  86. This video should come with a warning label, cause it hurts when I laugh that hard! Y’all are hotter’n a two-dollar pistol shootin’ uphill! Thanks for being you!

  87. Absolutely brilliant.

  88. That’s AWESOME!

  89. OMG –
    “Par-don me, I didn’t knit that for you-ou”
    is now stuck in my head.
    “Row by row, stitch by stitch, I’m just scratching an itch…”
    Y’all are just gorgeous . . . ! And for 3 solid minutes, I didn’t think about the financial bailout or Mrs. Palin. Bless your hearts.

  90. Oh my word! I think it could have used a brief Merle Hazard cameo, though, just to suck people in. He could never, of course, hold a candle to the two of y’all, but a new act was never hurt by association with a famous artist. Today YouTube, tomorrow The Opry!

  91. Unbelievable y’all!

  92. OK, I had a good, righteous snit going on and you two ruined it! That is very funny. I wasn’t sure if it was The Porter Waggoner show, or Hee Haw, or Statler Brothers, or even Lawrence Welk (I spent MANY Saturday evenings with the Grandparents in my childhood), but you two were certainly channeling something.
    So, how many layers of eyeshadow to get those particular shades?

  93. Who knew that knitting and Loretta Lynn/Tammy Wynette duos were all the rage? I am a Southern girl transplanted in Germany and you brought back such sweet, sweet memories. Excuse me while I go fix the sweet tea and get my Ball Band warshrag going. You ladies are the best!

  94. Who knew that knitting and Loretta Lynn/Tammy Wynette duos were all the rage? I am a Southern girl transplanted in Germany and you brought back such sweet, sweet memories. Excuse me while I go fix the sweet tea and get my Ball Band warshrag going. You ladies are the best!

  95. Wow, utterly fantastic! You ladies are awesome, what a great birthday surprise! All my knitterly country song longings satisfied in one fell swoop. Not to mention those wigs are fabulous!
    Thanks for posting it.

  96. Fabulous.

  97. That video gave the the chuckle I really needed today. Tnank you.

  98. Ab fab! You are two brave ladies! A classic.

  99. omg that was hilarious! where’d you get the groovy threads? just great!

  100. Oh Mah Lord. Reminds me of watching Hee Haw on the weekends. Those outfits, wigs and makeup. Ladies, you sure are sumthin!

  101. Yesterday I was given your book as a late birthday present(hooray!)and I really love it. Today I discover that Mason-Dixon Knitting is the gift that keeps on giving.. The song! The hair! The make-up! The Divas!!! Bravo!
    Is there no end to your hairspray, er, I mean talent?

  102. “….I’m just scratching an itch…” Who said knitters weren’t the coolest cats around?
    I could tell you’ve been practicing–your harmony is spot on.

  103. OMG, OMG, OMG!!! You ladies brought tears to my eyes. Um, because it was so heartfelt and bee-u-ti-ful!!!!! Wish I had knitting friends who didn’t already read this blog so I could send it to ‘em!
    When’s the album coming out?

  104. You never cease to amaze. What a treat.
    xxxxxxx

  105. Totally totally awesome. polly

  106. Now that song is in my head –

  107. Is there no end to your talents? The knitting, the designing, the writing, the public speaking, and now THIS! In contrast, I feel pretty good about myself if I take a shower before noon. May need to raise the bar a bit…

  108. I was going to suggest that your book-signing tour include a stop in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. But, after seeing this video, perhaps an engagement at Billy Bob’s Texas would be more appropriate!
    Bless your hearts,
    Mary G. in Texas

  109. I really shouldn’t have watched where I work (in a church), ’cause I fell out on the floor in laughter. I disrupted Wednesday night sermon preparations!!! This too much!!! Scratching that itch!!! LOL!

  110. I really shouldn’t have watched where I work (in a church), ’cause I fell out on the floor in laughter. I disrupted Wednesday night sermon preparations!!! This too much!!! Scratching that itch!!! LOL!

  111. Y’all are too much! And, I really shouldn’t have hit the play button here where I work (in a church). I laughed so hard that I disrupted Wednesday night sermon preparations! How did you two keep straight faces under the weight of that hair?!? That’s for brightening up my day!

  112. Holy F****** S***. That is awesome.

  113. Why, y’all clean up prettier than two speckled pups. And those hairstyles are sumpin I reckon I see right offen but you put the shine on it and that’s for sure. Ya bring a tear t’ma eye, ya do, the way you bring knittin’ to such a proud moment. And voices like the very angels too. Dang Girls, ya look ready for the prom! My punktuatin’s slim to none so hope y’all can figer this out.
    Proud, proud moment for knittin’ history.

  114. I am blown away by how good you are! Blown a-way!

  115. Oh My God!!! That is the MOST hilarious thing in the world!!!!

  116. You know, I didn’t laugh the first time because it was so danged GOOD! The second time, though, I snorted Mountain Dew right out my nose!

  117. The costumes, the hairstylin’, the jewels, the sparkly eyeshadah, the choreography!!! Why you sure done us knitters proud! I’ll bet if Minnie Purl :) was still around she’d a whipped off her hat with the price tags and put on a handknit and with a big “HOOOW-DEEEE” would a dragged you on up to the main stage of the Grand Old Opry. She’d a had you croonin’ right along with Porter and Dolly. (Ann, do you and Dolly use the same stylist?) Dang, you gals make me proud to be a MDK-er.

  118. Y’all made my day! Thankee!!

  119. Oh. My. Wonderful! Thank you for this.

  120. OMG I ’bout peed my pants!!! Too funny ladies!!!

  121. They knit! They publish! They sing! They rock…make that… TWANG! HEE-Haw!!
    :)

  122. Yay-hoo! I just might have to wing over to Chicago this weekend to hug your necks, that video is so superb! XXO

  123. Fabulous! You two never cease to amaze me. Thanks for sharing!

  124. Step aside, Tammy and Loretta. Robby and I LOVE it!!!

  125. I keep coming back again and again to see it and it never fails to put a huge smile on my face. It sure seems as though you had a lot of fun with it and your fans have had a great time watchng it. Thanks!!

  126. How were you not laughing through that? Was the hair so painful you could keep straight faces? Bless your hearts.

  127. Words fail me.
    But in a good way.

  128. Such talent even for Country singing!
    way to go!

  129. I really wondered who was *really* singing b/c it was so good, y’all! Then the spoken part…and I knew it was fo’ reals! Shelby is hollerin’ “Mo'” so I have to play it again.
    Good gravy, this is a classic.

  130. Nuttin’ to say that hasn’t been said already .. but HEE HAW! Ya’ll made my day and ya need to be with roy and buck just a pickin and a grinnin … As has been said, DANG good voices, jest purrfect in evry way. And love how you worked EZ in there! The balls of yarn on the mantle … And, like the rest … that song is running through my mind …
    oh – and I agree RING TONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  131. How did you not laugh???
    Lovely voices. What DO your children think? (or are they accustomed to such behavior from their mothers?)

  132. Hilarious!

  133. Standing ovation!!! Encore!!! for the performance and the book!

  134. Standing ovation! Encore, encore!!! for the performance and the book.

  135. I just spit tea all over my monitor. Really. You gals are my heroes.

  136. That’s a scream! Thanks for the laugh. It was needed today!

  137. I knew you all were talented, but I didn’t know how talented.
    Loved the lyrics. Loved the costumes. When is the variety show?
    Amy

  138. har har har. luv it, gals.

  139. har har har. luv it, gals.

  140. Is that a Teeny Project Runway contestant on the mantle? (Watched this a few times too many.)

  141. OMG Y’all are a hoot! (And you really do sing beautifully) Thank you so much for the wonderful day brightener . I can’t wait for one of my kids to complain about me singing or knitting too much, so I can show them this!

  142. mehital is just danceing
    on the barge going down the river
    tours jours gai tours jours gai

  143. OMG! This is the best video EVER!!! Ya’ll rule!!!

  144. I have found my true calling in life: I’M GONNA BE A GROUPIE!!!!!

  145. You made my day, my week and maybe the month — even though it’s only October 1 this is going to be hard to top. Thank you, thank you.

  146. Thank you! Best video ever.
    PS Love the stash on the mantel. I hadn’t thought to use my mantel space efficiently. Heck my whole mantel is open for storage.

  147. Okay, am I the only one who think Ann looks a little like pre-breakdown Britney Spears?? I totally dare her to do a remake of the “Oops, I Did It Again” video!
    What a great video! Thanks, ladies!!!

  148. Great singing! I completely admire your ability to do that without snorting, laughing, and crying hysterically at your own wit–a problem I frequently have.

  149. you are certifiable (and that IS a compliment). I love it.

  150. Okay, am I the only one who think Ann looks a little like pre-breakdown Britney Spears?? I totally dare her to do a remake of the “Oops, I Did It Again” video!
    I think it should be “Oops, I KNIT It Again.”
    Love the video, y’all. Bless your hearts.

  151. Ha, ha, ha–best You Tube video ever! My 16yo (knitting & CW music fan) daughter enjoyed it too. We’re loving the new book, I received it as a birthday gift last week. Thanks for all the inspiration and a great laugh today!

  152. Thank you so much! I just love it. I had to wait until I got home to watch. Our computers at work block YouTube. It was worth the wait. When is the concert tour? And yes, I agree, Ann had a Britney look to her. But a better voice.

  153. What a treat! I wish I had someone to share this with!

  154. Oh…my…gosh! I am going to have to watch that again and again to pick up all the nuances in facial expressions! You are too funny!
    I love it! Thanks!

  155. OMG —- I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!! this is better than Christmas morning!

  156. You girls are a scream! Love the look at the end!

  157. One of the finest comedians from the Saturday Night Live crew said the mark of a real comic talent is her ability not to break character– although we love to see people cracking up, I have to agree! Y’all held onto that song and them wigs tighter than white on rice! Good goin girls!
    This is the best blog in the entire world. Period.

  158. Awesome ladies!! You just made my night! (and gave me a new earworm!)

  159. I am screaming with laugher – even more so since my husband, who overheard the song, is now doing the dishes and singing the tune!

  160. You girls are HYSTERICAL!!! What a treat…and almost as good as your new book…love, love, LOVE the mitered kitchen towel! Thanks for the cheer!

  161. Yes, Ring Tones….set it up right away…the chorus and the “stitch by stitch” part esp. Rappers and Rock singers make serious money w/ Ring Tones. and so should you!!

  162. yes…RING TONES for sure. Rappers and Rock stars make a ton of money on these…and knitters should do too. Plus I LOVE the “stitch by stitch” part. A perfect ring tone.

  163. Whoo Hoo! *Please* wear those gowns to accept your Grammies. How many takes before you both got through it without cracking up?

  164. Funniest thing I’ve seen and heard in ages. I’m personally requesting an encore performance when you two are at Joseph-Beth next week.

  165. Too funny!! (Your talents just keep bursting out. Who knew?)

  166. That was fantastic! I so flashback to when I was a kid and my dad made me listen to Lynn Anderson!

  167. Oh my, that was sooooo funny!! I almost fell off the couch laughing so hard! The hair is just perfect! he he he he

  168. Oh my, that was sooooo funny!! I almost fell off the couch laughing so hard! The hair is just perfect! he he he he

  169. Oh my, that was sooooo funny!! I almost fell off the couch laughing so hard! The hair is just perfect! he he he he

  170. What a hoot….how can anyone watch that and not post a comment! Really now, ya’ll have really great voices. How DID you keep a straight face?

  171. Kay. I have known you for 17 years. And, until today, i thought i had seen it all from you, including the night we laughed our butts off in the pool with Maya. But this. THIS takes the cake.
    I bow to you.

  172. Good Lord!!!!
    HAHA!
    Erin

  173. Ya know, sometimes life sucks and you think,”What the hell is going on around here?” and then something GREAT like your u-tube video comes along and we all have something to smile about and feel grateful for!!!! Awesome job ladies… and BTW, congrats on the 2nd book!!!!!

  174. Oh. My. Gosh. I simply can’t stop laughing! That reminds me of old Grand Ol’ Opry shows from when I was a kid. Either that or Hee-Haw.

  175. Oh. My. Gosh. I simply can’t stop laughing! That reminds me of old Grand Ol’ Opry shows from when I was a kid. Either that or Hee-Haw.

  176. Is there NOTHING the two of you can’t do???!!!
    Rock on!

  177. Ladies!
    You’re stars!!!!
    I especially liked the voice over and the HAIR!!!!
    Thanks!!!

  178. LOOOOVE IT!

  179. Another fine production by Merle Hazard! Who knew how perfect country music with knitting as the theme would be? Of course it would be a tragic love story! Y’all made my day.

  180. Another fine Merle Hazard Production! Who knew country music with knitting as the theme would work so perfectly? Of course it had to be a tragic love story!
    Y’all made my day.

  181. Who knew y’all could sing so purty? Hoo-ee mama, that was nice!
    LOL!!!!!!!
    Thanks for making my day!

  182. OMG sis, You look like Grandma Frampton! and Ann is a dead ringer for Tammy Wynette. I’m laughing hysterically.

  183. Y’all are too amazing for words! You should include a music CD (“Knitting Songs We Have Loved”? “Cold Heart, Warm Sweater”???) with the next book!!!!

  184. Fantastic! and Hilarious! And for me this was the perfect day to have seen it.
    Thanks for sharing your wit charm and talents!

  185. GAH! AHHHHHHHH! If you’re not coming to San Francisco on your book tour, what about your concert tour?!?! That was absolutely FREAKING FABULOUS! Handspun! I had my face in my hands. Evoking the name of EZ in a country song. Ann, Kay, your brilliance never ceases.

  186. Being out of bed at 4:30 am because I can’t sleep anymore, this is exactly what I needed! What a hoot… I hope you’s gals make the top 40! and yes, I would certainly buy the record….

  187. Being out of bed at 4:30 am because I can’t sleep anymore, this is exactly what I needed! What a hoot… I hope you’s gals make the top 40! and yes, I would certainly buy the record….

  188. good LAWRD!
    i cannot count the many ways in which i love this. you guys totally rule. like, totally.

  189. OMG. October started out as a major bitch. Thankfully I think this may have trumped that. I’m still laughing and was mindsinging the chorus when I went to sleep.

  190. Un-freakin-believeable!
    Woot! I love me some crazy knitters, you rock!

  191. O.M.G.!!!!! Awesomely funny!!! LMAO!!!

  192. O.M.G.!!!!! Awesomely funny!!! LMAO!!!

  193. Brilliant, just brilliant! Thank you all so much, what a HOOT!

  194. and the winner is………… MASON DIXON KNITTING!

  195. Love it!

  196. That made my day! You guys are awesome!

  197. I must pile on – that made my day! Your talents certainly run deep. Love it!!

  198. Its all been said but I’ll say it again – fantabulous!! You ladies are too much.

  199. Its all been said but I’ll say it again – fantabulous!! You ladies are too much.

  200. Its all been said but I’ll say it again – fantabulous!! You ladies are too much.

  201. Hilarious! You realize though, that knitters who recognize you will demand that you break out in song on the spot. You might want to buy some of those big celebrity sunglasses and baggy clothes to avoid the knitting paparatzzi!

  202. I MUST have the name of your hairdresser!!!

  203. Y’all are too much sometimes!
    Amazing and thanks.

  204. You guys are great! I’m going to miss you in St.Paul (I’ll be at Disney) but I think you should do this live at the event. The Yarnery Family singers will be there too, but you can’t have too much knitting music!

  205. Buck, Roy and the whole Hee-Haw gang would be proud.

  206. Very funny indeed.
    Very.
    I like the Zimmerman reference.
    much love, y’all —
    (you once knew me from “Creating Text(iles)” — Hi!)

  207. Too funny – and you gals have great voices!

  208. Oh! The hidden talents! Oh! The memories of Hee Haw! Oh! Agents must be calling by now!
    ;)

  209. I can see why y’all didn’t participate in Amerca’s Got Talent — you’re waaaaay to big for those rookies! Seriously, loved it all and the reference to EZ was brilliant!

  210. Brava!!! LOVE the hair!

  211. I do believe you ladies made up for a lifetime of avoiding synthetics in just one wig/dress combo. And I loved the mantel also – you may finally have inspired me to get August’s UFO off my dining table.
    I will be hearing the chorus in my head all day.
    So is Merle gonna sing about the bailout any time soon, or is it just too bad to be funny about?

  212. Cannot believe you did that! Wow. You are some kind of crazy ladies. And you sing great, too!
    See you at Knitty City on the 16th!

    See you at Knitty City on the 16th!

  214. Hooting and hollering over here. You are both just too much. How do you come up with this stuff? OK. You knit. You blog. You write. You are so funny. You’re oh-so-creative. AND YOU SING BEAUTIFULLY!!! Is there anything you DON’T DO?
    Please keep up the hilarious antics. You keep us so entertained.
    Love & Kisses (from a project runway crazy fan)

  215. There simply are.no.words!

  216. I can’t get the song out of my head. Love the makeup, the hair, the yarn in the background, and you as country singers. Awesome. You have wonderful imaginations. Can I come and play with you some time? :)

  217. Oh my, you’re fabulous!

  218. So, this morning one of my students came in and said, “Have you seem Mrs. Shayn’e video?”
    Uh, no.
    Now I have.
    Though the hair and makeup are astounding, it’s the RED RED dresses that got to me. And the talking part of the song.
    Dang, yer funny.

  219. That would be “Shayne’s”
    My fingers were laughing.

  220. Hilarious! Pardon me, but that just made my day.

  221. My face is hurting! You two are brilliant!

  222. The tune is now stuck in my head, I’ve been singing it ALL day….we need that on iTunes!

  223. I tried to post a comment this morning, but kept getting an error message – overwhelming numbers of fans jamming the e-quency perhaps? This little number will be a hot item on the innernets, for sure.
    Gosh, this thing is brilliant – perfect in every detail! Thanks so much for making so many people laugh so hard :)
    (Glad I didn’t open this at my office!)

  224. Y’all, pass the Aqua Net, will ya, it’s windy here in Chicago…

  225. I watched this yesterday and had to come back and watch it again- that d*mned song is stuck in my head. Well done!!!

  226. Y’all are multi-talented! I vote for an album!

  227. Y’all are multi-talented! I vote for an album!

  228. Is it too soon to call this video “The Citizen Cane of all knitting-humor youtube videos?” Because I firmly believe that any knitting-humor youtube video that is made from here on out will aspire to be a little bit like this video. Bravo!

  229. Well, “pardon me”, but I”m having a hard time typing while wiping the laughter tears from my eyes.
    Too flipping good, this is!

  230. i peed myself.
    thank you.

  231. Woo HOO! You guys look great. Love the hair ;) Perfect vocals!

  232. I can’t wait to see you sing that when you visit Minnesota! will there be a cd we can buy?

  233. OK
    I just listened to again with normal volume. I now appreciate the musical touches: The reverb, the crooned background vocals. I sent this link to my 86 yo mom – if this doesn’t inspire her to learn to read e mail, NOTHING will!!!

  234. my oh my. one word…. PERFECT!
    thanks ladies

  235. Ha! Y’all are a hoot!

  236. Amazing, just amazing I just love it. By the way, does Steven Colbert know that you named a sock pattern after him? If he knew and then saw this performance — you’d end up on National TV!

  237. You are both out of your minds and sing very well indeed. How did you EVER keep from cracking up? I am so impressed in every way . . .

  238. You might both be out of your minds, but you ROCKED that song! Love it.
    Love the new book too!

  240. Ha. Fergit about any more a them knittin’ books. You guys can SING!!!

  241. Righteous!

  242. I am crying from laughing so much, really you should get a Country Music award!!!!!
    Is it me or do I see a resemblance to the girls from the B52’s.. I the next single ‘Wool Shack’ is on the cards! ;-)

  243. I am crying from laughing so much. You should get a Country Music award! Is it just me or are you gals really from the B52’s, there is an uncanny resemblance? I can’t wait for the ‘Wool Shack’ single ;-))

  244. Dang I gotta go to work now – and my boss won’t approve of me playing your video over & over & over. So, I’ll have to keep singing the chorus in my head till I can get back home & watch all y’all again!
    Say HEY to Merle!

  245. BRAVA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  246. BRAVA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  247. One more time. You two are AWESOME! This is the best video I’ve seen. Who knew what talent lurked behind the yarn?

  254. Wow!! You two are amazing! What a great song – can I see if Barry can get you a recording deal down on Music Row?

  255. How did y’all keep from laughing?
    OMGosh! Funny and clever.

  256. You two are completely responsible for me wetting my pants at 8:00 on Sunday morning.
    This was the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. You guys are wonderful. (And the new book is great!)
    ROCK ON!
    K

  257. That was sooooo great!!! Not sure Merle and y’all can top this one!

    Jacinta just made me watch, and now it is stuck in my head too!
    I want more from Merle Hazard! ;)

  259. Wait until Jack White sees this…he’s gonna wanna join up with you girls!

  260. Such talent! I am speechless…

  261. i especially love how Southern the phrase ‘pardon me, i didn’t knit that for you…’ rings to me–(or how Southern I believe it to be). Genteel. and saying so much more…
