If the knitalong were a unit of time, it would be one that goes really, really fast. We’ve had a blast knitting Karida Collins’s simply stunning designs for MDK Field Guide No. 18: Beginnings, and we’ve had terrific company all the way. Thank you to everyone who jumped in and knit with us.
All good things must (officially) end, but a proper knitalong is forever. If you’re still working on your Karidalong project, or if you haven’t even cast it on just yet, don’t worry: We will be thrilled to see your projects in their own sweet time. We’ll be enjoying Karida’s timeless designs, and her stunning Organic Studio line of yarns, far into the future.
And now, it’s time for our final round of prize winners.
Martha’s pup Woody models her Everyday Cowlette, which lands jauntily on his shoulder. The yarn: Organic Studio Chunky, in the shade Oliver.
Linda’s Debut Pullover, in Organic Studio DK in Cedonia, shows off the slightly ruched effect of the swirly yoke stitchwork.
From Beth, another fantastic Debut Pullover, this time in Vrinda Shakti DK (now Laneras Deseos DK) in a shade that provides great cover for a knitting needle.
Knitalongs bring delightful surprises. For her Simple Swoncho, Jenn used sets of Jill Draper’s Windham Mini-skeins to joyful effect. We hope to see this one being worn in the wild!
More knitterly invention: MC knit up this striped version of the Diagonal Mitts and added a picot edge, to make the perfect Pride present for a beloved niece.
What are the Prizes?
Each winner will receive a Ballband Thermal Mug and Metallic Pouch in the happy mail soon, so they can accessorize in the finest MDK swag style. We think this set nails the office-to-evening versatility we used to read about in magazines, back when there were offices and evenings to dress for.
