Best one yet. "That's where you keep your treats and treasures!"


I laughed so hard. So hard. And I am miserably ill so that just made me cough horribly, but it was totally worth it!@n


I fucked up my makeup laugh crying at this.


@DullHypothesis The dancing in the swants was the end for me.


@DullHypothesis Or the posing!! So great.


@DullHypothesis the greatest of all compliments (and sacrifices). Thank you.


this is beautiful


also it is possibly the best use ever of the phrase "there has got to be a better way to do this"

up cubed

I <3 everything about this.

I cannot condone wearing various items of clothing on body parts for which they were not intended, BUT

Karen Brewer also invented wearing sweaters as pants in the Super Special "Snowbound" and went around singing about her sweater-pants in....I don't know, 1992?

I don't even want to know how smart I could be if I didn't have bits of Baby-sitters Club trivia clogging up my brain. That and every single detail of the American Girl canon.


@The Lady of Shalott Also the hilarious Regretsy Skants. Which I would link to but the Regretsy archive is gone. Nooooooooo!!!!


@The Lady of Shalott Honestly, you should be impressed that you remember what BSC book Karen's sweater-pants came from. There will come a day, one day, when that'll come in handy. You won't know when, you won't know how, but suddenly... BSC trivia time. With cited answers.


I'm a knitter, and I've never really "gotten" Stephen West. This turned out about how I would have expected.

@themegnapkin FUCKING STEPHEN WEST, AMIRITE?!?!?! Can't handle it.


Yep — Best one yet! Great seeing you at Ab's wedding, Katy!


If I change my name to Katy or Katie or Catey or some variation thereof, can I be best friends with these totally awesome ladies????


@MarianTheLibrarian Me too! I'll be K-8-E!!

Also, thinking of cutting my hair to Katie / Katy length. Love both your hair(s) and the visor!!


@Legal I just cut my wig to this length and am really enjoying it. Shoulder-length hair: fully endorsed by Katy/Katie!

@MarianTheLibrarian MORE FRIENDS MORE FRIENDS! Ok, sure!


I NEVER watch videos (I'm just a reading and writing person... I do like tv and movies but I just never go on You Tube) BUT you guys are the besssst! I couldn't stop laughing at my desk.

I'm gonna watch it again right now.


@Mariajoseh ooh thank you, that is a good compliment!


I have the stomach flu and I laughed so hard at this video, I threw up a little.

Worth it.


@totallyunoriginal thank you for barfing at our video! Also though maybe get some pedialyte at the market or something?


this makes me want to skype-craft with my far away friends. so good.

victorian rose

The swantics aside, I want friends like this.


I love, LOVE that the soundtrack is "'Swonderful" (and everything else about this video)


I've Subscribed to their YouTube channel, so I can watch it once here and then again from the subscription, where I've got the series stored. All the thumbs up. My only comment would be No Boys Allowed!! (But with love)

Best line: "I just sat down and sewed myself into 'em." Amazing!


A good story about two friends.
