A Big Welcome to the Designer of Field Guide No. 10!
We’ve been sitting on this secret for so long.
We started sitting on it in Nashville, in the heat and humidity of midsummer.
We kept sitting on it in New York, in the deep freeze of winter.
We’re tired of sitting on it! It’s time to hatch this secret!
But First: A Few Facts About the Designer of MDK Field Guide No. 10
She has inimitable style that inspires knitters all over the world.
She is the leader of the most devoted band of test-knitters we know.
She is the designer of the March Mayhem 2018 Champion pattern, the Humulus pullover.
She is the pride of her small town in Germany.
She is the one and only . . .
Now you understand why we were so excited.
Field Guide No. 10 launches a week from tomorrow, on Friday, March 8. We have tremendous plans for fun with this very special Field Guide. We can’t wait to share the theme, the yarns, the whole megillah.
It’s especially fitting that we will be launching a Field Guide full of Isabell Kraemer’s designs at the same time as we enter into our annual wild and wacky pseudo-sporting competition known as MDK March Mayhem, the Tournament of Knitting Patterns. Isabell took the crown last year with her chic, wearable pullover, Humulus.
While we peruse this year’s bracket of 64 MDK March Mayhem patterns, dreaming and voting for our favorites, we can also be scheming up our cast-on plans for Isabell’s designs in Field Guide No. 10.
It’s going to be so fun.
If you are just now hearing the name Isabell Kraemer for the first time, you have an excellent adventure, and a lot of stylish sweater-ogling, ahead of you.
If you’re already an Isabell Kraemer fan, settle in and wait for the fun to begin next week.
