  • Ann and Kay, you are nd we not amazing me.

    • Silly phone! *NEVER NOT! Never not amazing.

      I adore the wigs, by the way.

      • They’re not real hair? Oh, man! ;-p

  • WonderfulCheers!

  • Props for working Dylan Thomas into that amazing poem!

  • Bravo! You nailed this one! ( and with shout-out to Hamilton, too)

    Happy New Knitting!

  • Just too much fun!!!

  • I loved the video! Hilarious
    May 2017 be kind to everyone. Knit bravely on, sisters and brothers!

  • Great way to finish a year & segway into the next. Now this silly song is stuck in my head. .. thx for keeping knitting fun!

  • Oh, ladies! A Euroflax vermilion log-cabin-ed blanket-load of thanks. Wonderful!

  • That video was my favorite thing you all did. To this day, when I see one of the sweaters I knit for my husband ages ago, I start humming your song. I can’t even recall the lyrics to the original song; that’s how much they have been supplanted by yours! Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us in 2017. Happy New Year to you and Ann and lots of X’s and O’s! Judy

    • Dear Judy,
      It’s an original song so if you hear it on the radio, let us know so we can sue. (We keep hoping Taylor Swift picks it up.)
      BLESSINGS UPON THE HOUSE OF JUDY,

  • Thanks for all you bring to our art–
    Laughter, knitting, lotsa heart!
    Happy New Year!!!

    • I see what you did there!

  • Roger Angell’s ninety-six, he’d sure be proud of you two chicks. (Sorry, it’s early…)

    • Love it!

  • You two are the best! Happy New Year dearies, and keep on keeping on.

  • Brilliant. I’d have loved to have been at that filming/photoshoot. Love you all xo.

  • I’ve found my tribe. The poem– funny and link filled–and the video–perf. Thank you and Happy New Year.

  • You and Ann are among my first computer stops every day, right after the news and weather, and you always make me feel good. The work you have done this year on MDK is amazing, and I love the new look. Have a Happy New Year!

  • That video is just tooooo funny. Loved it. You need to do more. lol

  • I am so glad I found MDK! You make me smile and inspire me so much. Wishing everyone the best in 2017!

  • I can’t help but see a distinct Britney Spears lookalike in Ann.That is if Britney had a better stylist!

  • “Pardon me, I didn’t knit that for you…”
    I loved you then, Ann & Kay,
    I still do-o-o-o!
    If the year ahead is fun,
    It’s because of what you’ve done
    With MDK. Happy New Year to yoooooooou!

  • Love you, love you, love you. All good wishes for 2017!

  • If there is one positive thing
    to be gleaned from 2016,
    it’s a new appreciation
    for fun and libation.

    Hadn’t seen that video. It is fabulous!!!! Love you two ladies and all those to whom you pay tribute. Onward and (hopefully, some form of) upward!

    • [[Virtually clinking libations]]
      [[smiling bravely]]

  • Love it! You made my day!

  • I just love y’all. Really. Happy New Year. May all our crises be small ones that can be solved with wool.

  • That video still makes me laugh out loud! I’m surprised that you haven’t received your Grand Old Opry invite yet. Thanks for being part of my knitting world & best wishes for a happy new year!

  • Already, you’ve cheered me up! I almost swooned when a man asked me if I was knitting basketweave. I was!

  • How can I apply to citizenship
    To Mason-Dixon Knit-public?
    2016 broke my heart
    Visible mending must make it right
    Bonne année, mes chères amies
    Your site is my fave WIP!

  • Kudos to those who came up with a poem
    We’ll all hope–a better new year for ’em.
    MDK brings us cheer
    Maybe we’ve got nothing to fear but fear?

  • I loved the video. Love the rhymes. Thanks for a great 2016, and such good times. Wishing you both the best of health, lots of knitting and much happiness in 2017. (My rhyming when uncaffeinated only extends so far lol).

  • 2016 was a difficult year, but MDK was such a bright spot in the middle of all of it. Thanks for all your hard work and for bringing new contributors and great writing to the new site. Happiest of New Years to you!!

  • You have no idea how this delighted Roger!

  • Dear Kay and Ann, you two and all your happenings have been a bright star for many to follow in the murkiness of 2016. Not only for your own adventures, but also for all the wonderful links to other people, creations, books, TVs shows and music that I would never come across otherwise.
    All the best for 2017 and here’s hoping it pleasantly surprises us all.

  • Wonderful! Wishing all of you a plethora of knitting and a very Happy new Year! love you both dearly and the joy, learning and love this MDK blog sends everyday!

  • I love you guys. I love your creativity, your humor, your compassion, your talents and the load of really cool friends you guys have. My daily dose of MDK is back and I very much appreciate it. Very best wishes to you both in 2017!

  • 🙂 brilliant! cheers! happy new year!

  • WOOOOOOOO!!!!!! (Fan girl shriek)

  • Thanks to all the MDK team and in particular Ann and Kay for this work of art, and also for all the fun.

  • HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! what a wonderful way to start… yall are SO creative and inspiring!

  • You have made me chortle in my joy. And not for the first time.
    Happy New Year (so to speak) and all the veriest of best to you, Ann and Kay, in the year that may be ahead.
    Thank you for handing out free tickets to the MDK fun-ride! I never get tired of this thing.
    xoxo

  • Oh, good heavens, the persistence of the holidays and the refusal of children’s schools to resume prior to New Year has meant that I missed this great hilarity. I DID NOT KNIT THAT FOR YOU was the best thing ever. Thank you for the reminder. Happy New Year, you nutty knitters! ❤️,
