It’s a rough old Thanksgiving this year. We hope you all are safe and that you can bear the hard decisions and sacrifices you’ve had to make. We hope that things will be really, truly different next year, and we’re doing our best to enhance the chances that all of us will be here to see and enjoy it and dispense many overly-intense hugs.
On this day of thanks, we give thanks for you. You give us a reason to get up and at ’em every day—that reason is a deadline, and since we publish at 3:30 a.m. Central, 365 days a year, we are never short of deadlines.
We love doing this. We love the MDK team, which has expanded this year as our small business grew to be a little less small, and we needed more help. We are deeply grateful that throughout these past months, our team stayed employed, our contributors kept contributing, and our payroll and vendors got paid. This happened thanks to kind knitters who purchase the things that we put in the MDK Shop with such excitement. Your support sends ripples throughout our community, in Nashville and all over our country and world.
It’s a bit last-minute for recipes for today, but we are making our standbys, even with fewer around the table to eat them. You’ll find links to some of the great and less-great-but-beloved MDK holiday recipes in the related content below. And Jen Geigley’s step-by-step tutorial to make the stockinette pie crust up top is right here.
Stay safe, keep knitting, and take care of each other.
Ann and Kay
