  • Way to rock us into 2018! Happy New Year, all!

  • Bravissimo!!! Your emails always make my day. Thank you for being you. Wishing you a wonderful 2018.

  • 2017, a dog’s breakfast indeed. But the knitting has been first-rate! Many thanks to both of you for all your hard work on MDK, the very best part of my morning routine. Happy New Year to all.

  • Fantissimo! I always ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ those photos. I think that last one iof Ann may be my favorite. Your video must be eligible for some kind if award. Grammy? Thanks for a great MDK year & Happy 2018!

  • Pardon me . . . . you guys are the best! Goodbye 2017 (finally!), hello 2018 with more to enjoy from MDK!!

Thank you for all the work you do to make my every day visit to your blog a fiber delight! I look forward to sharing another year with you and wish you all the best. (:

  • You have been the little bit of sunshine in an otherwise dreary year.
    I look forward to your posts with my first cup of coffee each and every day!
    Keep ’em coming and a great big Thank You!

  • Thank you! I like all the links in your poem, as there were some people and projects that I needed to remind myself of. Others, like the song, are unforgettable! I now know it well enough to sing along to the chorus and some of the verses. (Though some of the notes are a bit low for this soprano.) I especially love the gin-drinking and glasses-wearing outtakes. Happy 2018!

  • Thank you, thank you, thank you for brightening each and every day. Y’all are hilarious, fun, kind, intelligent, and thoughtful all wrapped up in a beautiful little package called MDK! Cheers to 2018!

  • You both make knitting amazing. Happy New Year!

  • Love this and have found MDK to be a wonderful port in the storm this year. Thank you.

  • Your “Pardon Me” inspires me every year as I pen my lyrics for my SSK songs. #stillwaitingforthealbum

  • I love you girls! Happy New Year and here’s to a lot more knitting in 2018!

  • Love the Angell and Frazier-inspired poem! And, as I was cruising through the aisles of the grocery this afternoon, I realized that I was singing to myself “Row by row, stitch by sti-i-tch, I was scratchin’ that itch…” Luckily, I passed unnoticed in the pre-NYEve hub-bub.

  • Wishing you all a wonderful 2018! Merci beaucoup, et bonne année!

  • I caught my breath for a moment. But alas is WAS too good to be true. There is no sequel. I do love the original “i didn’t knit that for you” but isn’t it time for another one?

  • Oh my stash, I almost missed this! (Busy day, and a late check in.)
    Ian Frazier rocked it this year, but you two gave him fantastic competition. Let me tell
    you for the last time in ‘17, I ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ to hear your ‘voices.’
    (I’m a long time follower, so the song, great as it is, was familiar.)
    Hope to see you in a couple of weeks at Vogue Live! ( A bit disappointed that there’s no early walk in the park, now that I’ve got a place in the city, but I’ll show up wherever you gather.)

  • HAHAHA!!!! Loved the song- of course, it will be in my head ALL DAY, so thanks for that!!! Really, though, you two are amazing! Thanks for a fun and knitted year!

  • Brilliant! I read Ian Frazier’s ode last night, and loved it. We read it aloud around the table. You two can give him a run for his money!! Thank you for many great years of reading and knitting, and for your wonderful site. Happy New Year!

  • That video is evergreen. Makes me chuckle every time

  • Yes yes yes! Another video is overdue! So fun, so timeless! Bring back bouffants, they are amazing! Thanks so much for starting my day with happiness, so glad you’re who you are!

  • Not sure which I like most: your great (daily! however do you manage that!) writing, or the inspiring and creative ideas. Both writing and ideas accompanied by morning coffee are a great start to my day. Thank you and best wishes for a happy new year.

  • I love you!
