  • Everything is wonderful. I am wondering if changes have been made to the Kiki Mariko Rug or if it is the same as in your book? I think it is going to be at the top of my 2021 project list.

    • We made a slight change so the edges are nicer.

  • I missed Saturday’s Virtual Open House on Zoom @ 2pm (driving home from the mountains). Was it recorded and viewable for watching for those that missed it?❤

  • I love the fact that the Potholder Loom Design book is already sold out. Nostalgia is a powerful motivator!

  • I want to be sure I am right, that there is no kit for the picket fence blanket. We just need to do the math and order quantities from the pattern?

    • Hi there! It’s a bit simpler than that, in a way. One Freia Yarn Bomb and one set of minikins gets you a Picket Fence Blanket. Because the gauge is smaller, you knit more squares. MDK reader Katherine had the briliant idea of doing this and we were smitten with her blanket using a Squid Ink Yarn Bomb and a box of minikins in Neutral Zone (that’s the blanket in the photos, which she kindly lent to us). I’m casting on soon and I will surely write all about it as I go.

  • I am reading your posts from Australia and I’m wondering if your shop is open to overseas shoppers. I love getting Snippets every week and I would love to put in an order!

    • Hello, Australia! We do ship to Australia. At times during this pandemic, the shipping times have been very long–weeks–but it has been a bit better recently. It is worrisome to ship so far in these times but we do offer it.

      • How about us Kiwis just over the ditch? Do you ship to NZ yet?

  • Didn’t Ann make a non-repeating Mariko rug some while back? How did that finally felt up? I’d love to see her FO.

  • Love that rug! What are the finished dimensions?

    • 30 inches by 40 inches. The quantities in the kit get you that, but of course if you are doing it from stash you can make it the size your yarn allows.
