  • Woo hoo! Can’t wait! I’m so happy I signed up for the 2020 subscription. No FOMO here!

    • Was just thinking the same thing. Whoop Whoop!!

  • I’m bursting with excitement to see Jeanette’s designs! Whoop!

    • Oh gosh, I would normally be choosing an MDK Firld Guide bundle of my very own, but I am on a point in my life where I am culling my library! Baking books, cook books and…yes knitting books. That crazy book purchase at Tolt or at Fancy Tiger Craft where you were overcome by yarn fumes and grabbed that book to put in with ALL the yarn you are buying.

  • So exciting! I can’t wait to see all of the designs!

  • I’m a fan of Jeanette’s patterns and am excited about the next Field Guide. I can’t get the subscription because I have #14 in my collection and I don’t need duplicates. I can’t wait for this one! Congratulations Jeanette!

  • Oh Ann, I feel your FOMO So excited to see FG#15!!!

  • Yay! So excited to see this and so soon! Thanks MDK for making the 2020 subscription available!!

  • I love her work and am so excited. Can’t wait for this to launch

  • More good news from Modern Daily Knitting. Jeanette is the best! Thank you, ladies.

  • MDK rocks! (Fist pumping in the air) I’m so excited for this! I’ve been following Jeanette since her Rowan days and am a fan! Good job ladies and thank you so much!


  • This is happy news. I took Jeanette’s in bead knitting at VKLive in New York. I found her a charming and adept teacher. I love her designs, her style, and her quirky glasses.

  • brava! i cannot wait.

  • This is so wonderful! I adore Jeanette’s work and cannot wait to see what she’s designed for her field guide. She has such an original vision.

  • Funny story — Jeanette was my first “star sighting” at VKLive NY (my first VKLive). And I actually squealed “You’re my first star sighting!”
    I was in the phone with my daughter at the time. “Oh, God, Mom.” See, you can still embarrass your kids into their 30s!
    Alas, I didn’t get to see my MDK ladies, but maybe next time!

  • MDK field guides are the new Calgon take me away Of the pandemic. Anxiously awaiting Jeanette debut

    • So true.

  • August 7th! It’s circled in red on my little desk calendar, and I have an alert on my phone! I’m ready! And as others have said, I’m very glad that I have subscribed for the 2020 Field Guides.
    What a wonderful intro to Jeanette Sloan. Thank you so very much. I’ve said this many times, but it bears repeating: you ladies are THE BEST!

  • GREAT choice!

  • Yay! Can’t wait to get it! 🙂 MORE PROJECTS to add to my queue! Yippee!

  • I absolutely can’t wait. I hope there’s a section of bead knitting. I was going to take a class but Covid struck and life changed. I love love these field guides. They are just the right size.

  • I’m so curious to find out what the theme of this field guide will be. I’ll be waiting in anticipation!

  • Do you have a teaser for the next mdk…great to see a project….deb

  • Love love love!!! So excited to see Jeanette Sloan’s new patterns, and I love her website!

  • This is so amazing!!!

  • Hello, In one of your newsletters I found the pattern Juniper Wings by Carol Feller. I fell in love with this pattern but am having trouble locating the yarn, WalkCollection Cottage Merino. I located some in UK at Tangled Yarn, but they cannot ship due to Covid. Do you have any ideas?

  • OMG I remember 50 years ago- VKLive in NYC is a n annual trek for us. Hoping it’s back on in 2021. It’s easy to see how creativity would flourish; sensory overload then surrounded by the beautiful scenery of the Hudson Valley. Cannot wait to see the results:)!! I’m not always the first to buy them, but I’ve managed to keep all those Field Guides on my bookshelf- or even better: in and out of project bags:)!

  • Looking forward to this. Jennifer lives one Metro stop away from my Mother.

  • I’ve seen previous field guides available on Ravelry – as in you could purchase the individual patterns from within the field guide. Will this option be available again with this field guide? Also are you still affilicated with or using Ravelry? There has been some negativity around that site recently so wasn’t sure if you’re still a presence there.
