Dear everyone in search of a good time,
Today is the official launch for our new knitalong, the MDK Marlalong. This is the knitalong where we dig into Field Guide No. 19: Marls and play around with the effects you get by knitting with more than one strand of yarn at a time.
There’s a reason knitalongs are so popular: we get inspired by the other knitters working on similar projects, and it turns into a sweet share-and-care thing. All that motivation and intention mean you’re probably going to finish your project quickly—though truly, there’s no problem if you don’t.
You’ll find other marl-minded knitters in the MDK Lounge, where we will be sharing our projects, helping out with technical questions, and generally having a good time exploring Cecelia Campochiaro’s designs.
And watch for our upcoming Zoom seshes, where we will gather to discuss our progress and generally show off our awesome works in progress.
Thanks to the generous folks at Knitter’s Pride (follow them on Instagram!) we have a spectacular prize to offer—three, in fact! We will be awarding prizes randomly, so don’t feel like this is the Iowa State Fair and you have to be some kind of knitting freak of nature to win a prize.
Each of three winners will receive A Self Love Interchangeable Needles Gift Set by Knitter’s Pride
How to Join
It’s so easy: simply get yourself a copy of Field Guide No. 19: Marls right here, and pick out a project. You’re welcome to use your own yarns, but we can’t help but point out the juicy delights we have brought into the MDK Shop for you—all are Cecelia Campochiaro’s favorite yarns for marling.
There are five projects to choose from.
Marlogram Scarf/Cowl Superfun to work two slow gradients in a knit-purl pattern, here in Freia Ombré Merino Lace. Who knows how yours will turn out? The crazier your colors, the more fun, we are discovering.
Color Explosion Throw The project that has gripped us and won’t let go. That’s our bundle of Rowan Felted Tweed below, briefly sold out but coming back into stock any moment now. (Save 10% off single-ball price with this bundle.) Or pick your own 11 colors right now from our Felted Tweed open stock. (Pick 3 balls of 3 colors, and 2 balls of 8 colors.)
Start this very minute! WIPs and FOs also welcome. We’re going to keep the Marlalong going through the end of January, because we basically want to make every single project in Field Guide No. 19: Marls and hope you do too.
What project has caught your eye? Let us know!
