  • Soak basin bundle

    • That caught my eye too – currently I use a big, vintage, enamelled basin. 6 scents of Soak is really appealing!

      • Love all the felted tweed!!

        • The set from Thistle Farms, because of all the good things they do.

        • So do I! All the colors to make the blanket in #13 guide, Master Class! Oh, Santa, please please!!!

        • so hard to choose.. the serving set? The field guide subscription? The felted tweed bundle for cityscape?..

      • I would be thrilled with any of the felted tweed bundles. They would be a source of hours of fun.

    • Love everything in the shop and I like that it’s out nice and early. Time to shop and time to order!

    • Ombré Marino Lace

  • The 2022 tea towel

  • Love the felt bags!

  • MDK field guide subscription!

    • Field Guide Collection

      • So many gorgeous things. I love the felted tweed kits.

  • Cheese and cracker tray!

  • MDK field guide subscription

  • The Stars and Flowers Transparencies bookbecause I can play with color and design when I am away from my knitting.

  • I love the Lotta Jansdotter ornaments and the MDK Windup coffee!

    • Felted creatures, but amaryllis kit is a very close second

  • The cracker tray!

  • The easy-care bird and birdhouse.

  • Oh, those Yarn & Whiskey African Print bags❣️ Also the adorable Calendar Tea Towel…how to decide???

  • The Flower Stitch Markers!

  • Amaryllis kit ♥️

  • Soak basin bundle!

  • The workshop apron!

  • The swatch gauge – this tool has reduced my fear of gauge mishaps, which has conduced to more courageous knitting. Yay!

  • Enamelware

  • I’m torn between the enamelware trays and the bento bags. They both would bring joy to my day.

  • The coffee. Without a “cup of ambition,” little knitting gets completed in my house.

  • My favorite: the hand carved cracker Trey.

  • Field guide subscription!!

  • That’s like asking which one of my children I love best! They are all so beautiful I ordered the soap and lotion sets as gifts for others ( ok I got an idea citrate one for me). I love the tea towels I’ve ordered those before they wear beautifully. And I was very tempted by the amaryllis kit they are so pretty!

    • It was supposed to say (ok I got an extra one for me) my typing teacher would not be happy that I didn’t proof read

    • There are so many wonderful things that it’s hard to choose just one! The Field Guide subscription sounds delightful!

    • This is a hard one I’d say a tie between the window stars kit with all that translucent color or the clover needle felting steek tools as I’ve been too scared to try steeking!

  • Oh i love anything that looks like a bag !! But, the African print bags are my favorites.

  • All those Felted Tweed pages make my heart go pitterpat!!

  • My favorite thing is the tea towel … but now I also have my eye on the apron, the cheese and cracker tray and the Pull From the Tangle print.

  • The creatures felting kit!

  • The 2002 tea towel (considering making strips of the 2001 towel to weave into a memory bowl for the plague years)

    • 2022! 2021! Just too early yet to think and type

  • The soak basin bundle would be my favorite thing. What a clever thing–makes a decidedly dreary task a whole lot happier.

  • I love the bright colors in the potholder loop kit.

  • I’m rather partial to the cracker tray!

  • I love the enamelwear

  • There are so many cool items it is hard to pick a favorite. My most favorite is the soaking basin.

  • Bornn enamelware looks so cool!

  • The Shop is spectacular this year; I think my favorites are the Yarn and Whiskey bags.

  • I bought the Turkish towels, but they are for a gift. My favorite thing in the holiday shop is the Kiki Mariko rug kit. Nicely done shop this year!

  • The Mariko rug kit is lovely

  • Window stars kit!

  • Felt bags!

  • Love felted bags! Have several that I use frequently!

  • The Lotta Jansdotter trio couldn’t BE more beautiful, yet it gets some serious competition from the wooden cracker set.

  • REALLY?? I can only pick one favorite? After my quick look through the book I’d say ‘the tray’, ‘Turkish tea towels’, ALL the field guides, and Barnyard knits to just name a few:)

  • I’m going to give my least favorite, which is the coffee… (not a coffee drinker). Everything else is on my favorite list!

  • The window bird feeder!

  • Apron

  • My favorite “thing” you say? If “thing” was plural rather than singular I’d have no problem. But, one thing? Impossible! One thing per page would be more like it! I really love the Soak Basin Bundle, the Bento Bags and those adorable stitch markers! I know, that’s three things but choosing just one thing is just too much to ask!

  • For sure the field guide subscription!

  • The tea towel. Need to check to see if it is back in stock.

  • So many amazing things in the shop — revolution basket or revolution tray may be my favorites, but then any one (or twenty one) of your yarns might be my favorites too.

  • I think the window bird feeder is a great idea. Entertainment for kids, adults, and pets

  • African print bags – so beautiful and colorful.

  • Those adorable flower stitch markers!

  • I keep looking at the tynd yarn. It is beautiful. Oh, and the bird feeder. Lovely.

  • I love the Confident Knitting Bundle!

  • Tea towel

  • The 2022 Field Guide subscription. Happiness all year long!

  • Loome tools. I love the whole set!

  • Love the Amaryllis Kits! But also the “cool little things” ornaments.

  • The ornaments!

  • The amaryllis kit, of course!

  • Totally the Soak Basin Bundle. And yarn. Any yarn

  • The sheep ornament!

  • The African print bags

  • I’ve been wanting the watercowl dark kit forever BUT the African print bags are so very tempting.

  • I love that you brought the Thistle Farms set to the online shop, but most importantly brought the business the attention it needs

  • Hard to decide on just one the sheep and lama ornaments are adorable, MDK subscription would be lovely! So many beautiful things to choose!

  • Woolly Creature Felting Kit! I’d really like to give this a try. 🙂

  • Love the print bags.

  • Mmmmmmmmm, I love the Field Guides, they don’t take up much room and they are the gift that keeps on giving

  • Yarn and Whiskey African print bags

  • Ooh! So much in this shop- 1) the llama ornament 2) the Amaryllis — pick me — 3) the wooden cracker tray – just to name a few.

  • I want all the things! But if I had to choose just one I would get the hand care duo set. I love that it is a business to empower others .

  • I’m a sucker for potholder loops. Potholders were my first foray into the fiber arts—and entrepreneurship. I sold them door to door: 15 cents apiece or two for a quarter!

  • I am looking forward to a great gift from my daughters for Christmas!! am getting the whole darn Field Guide Collection plus #19!!

  • Thistle soap and lotion

    • The Thistle Farm soap and lotion set. I’m combining it with a pair of thrummed mittens for a Christmas gift for my niece.

  • Soak basin bundle…after slight incident with blocked kitchen sink

  • White tweed sock yarn is my fave

  • For sure … the field guide collection.

  • I love the Hatch Print!!

  • I would love to try the MDK Wind Up Blend and have a lovely tea towel.

  • Love the oh so pretty enamelware trays, Yarn and Whiskey project bags and Turkish towels. What I bought were the practical and useful book holder, needle felting tools and the cheese and cracker tray (to give as a gift).

  • Tulip interchangeable needle set — love the case, too.

  • Turkish cotton towels and tge Barnyard knits yarn

  • I love the bird feeder

  • I love a roomy tote like the felted City tote or the mustard yellow tote with the happy colorful screen print that comes in the Beginner Skill Set. Filled with the field guild and happy coloryarn to make the Stranded Throw in teal, pinks and yellows.

  • The window bird feeder. I’m planning to buy one to give my daughter for Christmas. She’s 4 and will love having birds come right to her bedroom window!

  • Amaryllis kit!

  • The tray basket

  • Wooly creatures felting kit.

  • The enamelware is lovely.

  • Canvas Workshop Apron…with those deep pockets!

  • So many field guides are calling! I’d have to add to my collection along with a bundle of yarn.

  • I am split between the amaryllis kit and the tea towel… but then their is all the yarn!

  • The window transparencies – for my granddaughter’s holiday gift. Oh – and the color pens.

  • I’ve been dreaming of owning one of those felt bags for years!

  • Hand care duo-the product and the mission

  • Love watching the flower grow so fast and tall! Great for impatient little gardeners

  • It’s so hard to choose! The hand care duo is a top contender, I did go to their site and purchased several of my Christmas gifts. Love the mission and want to support women in need. The ornament trio is really lovely and the African print bags! I’m a sucker for a pretty bag.

  • Can’t decide between the Revolution Tray or Kaffe’s book. Both would be lovely.

  • All the Revolution items – especially the tray

  • Hard to choose, but hand soaps win.

  • The canvas work apron and 5he tweed yarn.

  • Hard to pick a favorite, but I love the Thistle Farms items and am delighted to know purchasing them will assist women in need.

  • Most definitely the Field Guide Tote. I live in Canada so I’m pretty sure the Amaryllis can’t be sent to me so on the off chance I do win, please send it to Becca Stevens at Thistle Farms to thank her for all the wonderful work she does.

  • Window stars!

  • The Knitters Tote

  • My favorite, oh there are too many! So I’ll go with the 52 Weeks of Shawls.

  • African print bags are lovey.

  • Loving those pewter sheep ornaments……

  • I would have to say the potholder loops… But that calendar tea towel does it for me too!

  • The Field Guide subscription!

  • Oh my goodness. So hard to choose, there are sooo many wonderful things! I’d say first things first: coffee;) and there’s the Enamelware, the hand care kit, bentu bag…and of course the amaryllis kit!

  • I love the apron!

  • Field guides in a Tote!!

  • I love the knitters Tote

  • The loom, all the glorious colours of yarn, and the pin “The year of the Dickie”, because I am to knit 2 dickies for Christmas gifts. Functional, warm dickies for farmers who work in the cold and, in my part of Canada, a cold, snowy one is being predicted.

  • Why can I only pick one? Whyyyyy? Because I like the Knitters tote, and the tea towel, and the garter shawl bundle, and and and!

  • Soak basin bundle!

    • The African print bags for me.

  • The linen 2022 towels. Make great gifts for friends

  • As a gift giver I love the tea towel, enamelware, tray, and paper stars. As a knitter, the interchangeable s and the white tweed sock yarn.

  • On this brisk Sunday morning in Georgia, the Amaryllis bulbs are what inspire me. But I always end up staring at those Freia lace ball colors until my jaw goes slack and the dog becomes concerned.

  • Anything from Thistle Town!!

  • It’s very hard to say but….wooden serving tray and spoon- beautiful

  • African print bags!!

  • Wow such cool stuff. The field guide collection is my best pick but those Turkish towels are lovely. Thanks for such a wonderful collection!

  • It was difficult to narrow it down to one favorite thing … the winner is Lotta Jansdotter’s ornaments.

  • White Tweed Sock 🙂

  • Too many things to choose a favorite! The Hatch Show print and the coffee are great little surprises in the look book, and yet, I covet the knitters tote most of all.

  • The watering can. I’ve been looking for just the right one.

  • I covet the Tulip interchangeable needle kit! Someday it will be mine!

  • I would really enjoy the field guid collection!

  • My eye was riveted to the enamelware.

  • Handcare duo

  • The Woolly Creatures Felting kit…which I had to purchase of course. So many great things to choose from though!

  • 2022 tea towel, coffee to go in the ballband mug I already have, adorable watering can … I can’t stop!

  • The Yarn&Whiskey African print bags! I bought two, red black is my favorite. They are bigger than I thought (a good thing) but did not contain yarn or whiskey (a bad thing).

  • Probably the most difficult decision of my week, but I must pick the Revolution tote. I look at it weekly!

  • If I have to choose just one, then it would have to be the vintage scarf kit!

  • so hard to choose. the pens

  • I love the tea towel, window stars, and the African bags!

  • Easy peasy answer response — The Field Guide Bundle.

  • I have my eye on the Hand Care Duo, just can’t decide on the scent.

  • color explosion throw kit

  • The wonderful tempting colors in the yarn bundles.

  • Wooden serving sets

  • The cracker serving tray! Or the pink enamelware dish!

  • I love the window bird feeder. I bought 2; one for me and one for my young neighbors

  • I love the woolly creature felting kit!

  • Cheese and cracker tray.

  • This seems boring but I love the Soak Basin Tub. I always just use the sink and it doesn’t work great.

  • I’d love a calendar towel- I “saved” it in my basket too long! ☹️

  • For me, the most beautiful items are the African print bags, but since I have more than 30 knitting bags, I can’t buy any. The most exciting items is the hand care duo because it has such a heartwarming story behind it. I can’t wait to try them out and give them as gifts!

  • Anything to do with yarn.

  • Hard, hard choice. But eventually I settled on the village scarf kit. So much fun.

  • The Bornn Enamelware is exquisite!

  • Always, yarn glorious yarn.
    But the ornaments are pretty cool too. Who doesn’t need a pewter sheep.

    • Lama.

  • The soak basin bundle for me, too. No more sink-scouring before hand!

  • The felted tweed. I love that yarn.

  • I really like the blue enamelware

  • The knitter’s tote! someday….

  • The Printed bags grabbed my attention…and then I saw the cracker tray…

  • Soak basin bundle!

  • Oh my! So many wonderful things!
    Turkish towels and window stars – love!

  • I want it all! I particularly love the dark watercolor cowl kit!,,,

  • Flower Stitch Markers, Wooden Serving Sets and enamel wear

  • First, a big compliment to the graphic designer and creative director – a gorgeous design for the holiday guide. I like the canvas apron for keeping up with this and that in its pockets as I move from project to project around the house.

  • Wooly Creature felting kit! (Followed by Window Stars)

  • I like the African print project bags and the one stop making marls kit.

  • The calendar tea towel reminds me of my mom’s collection that started in the ‘70s.

  • I dream of owning the field guide tote with all of the fiend guides in it!

  • Only one favorite? Impossible! Kiki Mariko has been on my wish list forever and the stranded stipe throw li stump and now the adorable enamel trays.

  • I love the sheep and llama ornaments. So cute! I do love all the felted tweed. Wouldn’t mind having every color!

  • The sheep ornament!

  • The llama ornament!

  • The hand soap and lotion set. I love what the company is doing and that you featured them in your holiday shop n

  • It is the knitter’s tote for sure!!

  • How is a person meant to choose just one? For me it’s the Potholder Loom and kit, which is going to make lots of holiday season long joy for me plus potholders to give as gifts to everyone else

  • Yarn and whiskey bags!!

  • So always yarn. All the yarn. Beyond that I love the amaryllis and the enamel pin is so cute and inspired.

  • The Rowan Felted Tweed bundles!

  • Sheep ornament.

  • Hand Care Duo! Love Thistle Farms mission & success rate. I am trying to focus my giving this year on groups helping women and children.

  • My favorite thing in the look book? That’s hard – I will go with what I was immediately drawn to: the enamel trays.

  • Yarn and whiskey African print bags!

  • Coffee and the cheese and cracker tray because snacks are a necessity when knitting and I don’t see a wine offering yet( did I just miss it?). Yarn goes without saying. I may need one of those African cloth bags to dress up that yarn.

  • Just one!? I love any of the yarns, the tea towel and the window stars.

  • I love, love the MDK dickie/swarf pin!

  • hand care

  • Did I fail to mention i got a pin for myself and was so impressed with the lotions and their mission, I went to their website and ordered a wonderful mug from them?

  • I covet the window bird feeder and any of the Turkish towels.

  • The field guide collection (and the window bird feeder so I can do two things I love at once!)

  • I love the cityscape scarf set!! The colors are gorgeous!

  • Soak basin bundle

  • I have been imagining the wooden spoon cracker holder in my daughter’s kitchen ever since I saw it! Love it!

  • soak basin bundle (although it was very hard to choose!)

  • All of the items are great! My favorite this year is the llama ornament, to go with the sheep ornament I bought last year.

  • Loved the apron… and wooden spoons! I mean, how can I narrow it to just one thing??!!

  • African print bag

  • Turkish Towel!

  • The hand care duo. It took me to Thistle Farm’s website and I love the idea of gifts that give twice; a great gift that supports great humanitarian work.

  • I love the wooly creature kit. Fun to experiment and seems you can’t fail.

  • Enamelware

  • Canvas workshop apron

  • I love the book stand…have one and it is such a great item with many uses.

  • Love the enamel trays! And of course the yarn

  • The Soak Basin bundle and the African Print bags caught my eye. My absolute favorite, though, are the Field Guides. It seems that no matter what I want to make, there is a pattern and lots of ideas!

  • Bird feeder!

  • My favorite and has been for years is the knitters tote followed closely by the cotton cord bag. Someday, someday!

  • Those colorful window stars and the sheep ornament – had to pick 2.

  • I’ve always loved enamelwares, but the pewter is very nice too!

  • I am torn between the amaryllis and the wooly creatures felting kit!

  • African print bag

  • The Woolly Creature Felting Kit!

  • Wow! Everything!

  • Masterclass with the yarn. OMG. So gorgeous. And the that swatch gauge is brilliant.

  • I love the pink enamelware ❤️

  • So hard to choose. I’ve been lusting after an Akerworks gauge tool for months. Also love the basin with Soak supplies! And several of the Felted Tweed scarf kits. And…

  • Year of the dickie pin is my fave! I’m making the marled swarf yippeeee!

  • I’d love to have one of those felted tweed bundles, with all those lovely colors!

  • Wood serving set….useful…pretty…handmade….what else could you ask for?

  • I like everything, but my favorite is the hand care duo.

  • So many things! But totally coveting the calendar towel that is still not back in stock. Sigh. And the watering can is beautifully designed, I shared with some product designer friends and they love it too.

  • I love that enamelware. Maybe then I could stop borrowing all the saucers from the cupboard

  • Apologies for grazing past all the yarnie things, but my favorite item in the Holiday Shop has to be the Window Stars / Kite Paper. As the season turns toward winter and the sun sets oh-so-much earlier, I’m finding myself out on the deck looking at stars (searching for the elusive Aurora), and enjoying anything that adds soft colorful light to the world.

  • My favorite thing is The Year of The Dickie pin! I collect pins and intend to buy this for myself after I knit the swarf.

  • Oh my, so many! Generally, the item on the page before my greedy eyes. If I had to pick right this minute, I’d say The Amaryllis Kit, of course.

  • The color explosion throw kit caught my eye.

  • Oh, I’m having a hard time choosing – but those window stars look very fun – Do you need the book to make them, or is there enough info with the paper pack?

  • Thistle hand care set. I am so impressed with the mission of Thistle Farms!

  • The African Print Bags and, of course, all the Field Guides and all the yarn!

  • Ooh! What is my favorite thing in the Holiday shop. Hard to choose. You pulled off a gorgeous look book. I think that I love the spoons, but most of all, I like the Kaffe Fassett projects with the completed pieces as backgrounds, and the yarns that make the piece on top. Inspiring!

  • I would go with the first 18 field guides as favorite. But also like the swatch gauge.

  • I love all the Thistle Farms products! I’ll be buying them for sure!

  • The tea towels…..it is a whistle-while-you-work kind of thing……love dreaming of knitting while doing the dishes!

  • Potholder loom and loops.

  • The knitters tote!

  • The African print bags! A knitter can never have too many bags. These are so bright, cheerful and unique!

  • The changeable knit needle kit is on my wish list. I w9uld really like to win the amaryllis for my daughter in law.

  • The books! The new Kaffe Fassett book is calling to me loudly. I am listening.

  • Bird feeder!

  • Favorite thing inn the MDK shop is those felted bags, but truth be told, my actual favorite thing is that there IS an MDK shop. I browse, I buy, I’m HAPPY!

  • Well, that’s a tough one, but I’m going to have to say the knitter’s tote, because I’ve been longing for one for a long time.

  • Hmmm, I like thewooly felted creatures kit which I will make for a grandchild or two or four.

  • I love the window bird feeder!

  • I love the wooden cheese and cracker tray.

  • The felt bags!!

  • I’ve been itching for the pot holder kit! Bring back crafty memories from childhood

  • My favorite thing is the Lookbook. It’s like a polished Sears Catalog and many of us can remember the thrill of sitting & wishing. Now, I can sit and look at all the fabulous items, which to choose for myself or for others. It’s just too fun.

  • How can I pick just one? I would love a Felted Tweed Bundle (Bright or Dusty), and the Tulip Interchangeable Needle Set looks awesome. But if only one thing, then Making Marls by Cecelia Campochiaro which, according to our local independent bookseller, is sadly not available in Canada.

  • The wooden serving sets – especially the cracker tray – are on my wishlist.

  • bento bag

  • Ooh, how to choose? The amaryllis, the enamelware, the African print bag… It’s all fun!

  • Definitely the pewter sheep and llama ornaments. They are going to live year round in my yarn and craft room.

  • I only get to pick one? Sigh…. the subscription for 3 guides in 2022. I’ve done it for 2 years and love the surprise each time

  • The African Print bags, the Soak basin bundle, the sheep and llama ornaments. I could go on…

  • All Thistle Farms products are my favorite things in the holiday shop. It is wonderful to use products that smell so good AND help women find a better life. Good job, MDK!

  • My favorite is the amaryllis kit!

  • So many great things! But I have to go with what I need the most: Field Guide holder-upper.
    Thanks for the chance at the give-away.

  • My favorite thing would have to be the Color Explosion Throw kit!

  • Mine was the awesome pricing to subscribe to The Field Guides and purchase some back issues!

  • Wow! This is hard! I like the enamelware, the wooden serving set and the tea towel!!

  • I like the window bird feeder. It would also entertain my cats.

  • The soap and lotion sets! Wonderful product and wonderful cause. I’ll be ordering several for gifts!

  • Having all the field guides in a bag would easily be my favorite item in the look book.

  • Oh my goodness! So many “favorite” items. I have already received my first round of orders. I love the stitch markers (magnetic), the watering can is adorable and so handy and stylish. The Yarn & Whiskey bag is stunning. The Soak basin will come in handy. So much fun!

  • I love the African print bags……

  • Flower stitch markers!

  • Dead tie between the Turkish towels and a set of bright Felted Tweed yarns. With so many other temptations too .

  • The set from Thistle Farms.

  • There are so many wonderful things. I’m going with the watering can.

  • Love those flower stitch markers, I’ve never seen any stitch markers like them!

  • There are many things but I would love to have the field guides collection. I have started my own but slow going. The minikins boxes are absolutely wonderful. I could put together a cool color way to marl for that lovely blanket in the Mdk marl field guide. All in all there is not much in the holiday shop or regular shop for that matter, that I don’t love!

  • Wooden serving sets and Felted Tweed.

  • I love the enamelware, but any of the items would be great!

  • The felt bags are tempting me.

  • I love the Field Guide Bundle in the little tote!

  • Just one favorite thing? Oh, that is so hard. How about my top ten? I’ll say the soak basin set….and …okay, just one then.

  • The new revolution tray looks like the perfect place to,l plan marls! That is my pick.

  • The subscription and those little stitch markers. So happy I got some before they ran out. The soaking tub is still haunting me.

  • The new Kiki Mariko kit color is fantastic!

  • The Lotta Jansdotter Ornament Trio – so beautiful!

  • Soak Basin Bundle and the Amaryllis Kit! Can’t choose!

  • My favorite thing is the felted tweed bundles. Someday I’ll be ready for that splurge.

  • In addition to almost any of the yarn (looking at you Barnyard Knits and Freia Minikins), I think my favorite is the Turkish towels. Or maybe the Bento bag. No wait, the enamelware. Sorry, can’t choose just one.

    • I love the tea towel! And i sent an amaryllis kit to my son who just moved into his first solo apartment.

  • The enamelware trays

  • Soak basin bundle

  • 2022 tea towel

  • Garter stripe shawl bundle! I have my eye on making this for a dear friend.

  • I loooooove the Yarn & Whiskey African print bags. Beautiful!

  • Knitter’s tote! Love the red circle that pops.

  • Hello Ann! Carolyn in Jackson Hole here – we met during the wonderful Marl-o-Rama weekend a few weeks back. Love reading that the Skill Set app is a hit with the youngsters! We ramped up our middle school knitting club last week after a long COVID hiatus. One art teacher and one volunteer knitting teacher (me!) were greeted by no less than 25 6th-8th graders all eager to learn. Do you guys offer any school licenses to your software? These kids all have school-issued iPads. If you have a multi-use license option I could talk to the school about buying in! Regardless I will encourage the kids to check it out on their own personal devices

  • The paper stars! My dark days need brightening.

  • My favorites are the wooden serving sets and cracker servers.

  • Sheep ornament

  • Just too many to really choose! I really love the window bird feeder and the enamelware and the Thistle hand care and……

  • Felted tweed all the way!

  • I would so like to have Lotta Jansdotter pewter ornaments. They are lovely. And, if I can be greedy and just for fun, I’d like to play with the Wooly Creature Felting Kit, too.

  • the Revolution Tray!!

  • Love the Bento bags, flower stitch markers (never enough cute stitch markers) and the Marl Field guide and yarn to go with! Indecisive today!

  • HandCare Duo – this looks amazing!

  • The hand care duo has my name written all over it!

  • I love that you have coffee now! Knitting and coffee go together like peas and carrots!

  • I love the sheep and llama ornaments. Also, the MDK field guides.

  • Okay, what’s not to love about luscious yarns!
    Yet I find the stylish watering can drawing me in.
    Runner up is the “Year of the Dickie” pin. I would SO wear that.

  • Love the enamel ware!! And the cool ornaments.

  • Hand care duo

  • White Tweed Sock. I’m hoping it knits up as nicely in real life as it does in my imagination. I also love the Color Explosion Throw Bundle, but I bought that for myself already. Great lookbook this year!

  • My favorite are the new colors of Barnyard Knits.

  • Oh, I love the rope bags. Need to send the Hubby a link to those…

  • My favorite item in the gift book is the Confident Knitting Bundle. I have watched all the videos and plan to buy all three books soon.

  • Just one thing? If I didn’t live on the fourth floor, I’d get the bird feeder. The Confident Knitting Library is next on my list – I’ve so enjoyed the articles Jen does that I know are all packed into that set (amazing!). And I need a bigger living space so I can entertain with those wooden serving boards and have a spot to stash a bucket specifically for soaking my knits (and laying them out to block – I have to plan a day where I don’t need the kitchen table currently). And since I’m working with imaginary space and money at this point, I’m ordering at least one of everything (except the coffee) so I can enjoy it!

  • The Hatch show print!

  • The Tulip Interchangeable Needle Set has been calling my name.

  • The Revolution tray and the enamelware. I love all my field guides and would love the book rest! I want to make the scarf from the Marl field guide!!! So many great things!!

  • Haha! I’ve already shopped MDK and it was all for me!! It’s very good therapy for the pre- holiday stress I get. I did not get the Lotta Jansdotter ornaments but they are spectacular!

  • Kinda like the bird feeder thingie. Never like to turn a hungry birdie away.

  • Although it’s difficult to pick just one thing in the Holiday shop I’m just loving the African print bags. Okay I’ll admit it I’m a “bag girl”!

  • I would love all the field guides. There are so many fantastic things I can fantasize creating and perhaps a few will actually come off my needles.

  • HC Roasters MDK Windup Blend. Coffee and yarn a perfect marriage.

  • The Kite paper is calling to me…

  • The Mariko rug in Grello! And the amaryllis (almost bought one last night at Home Depot, so glad I didn’t since I am going to get one from MDK!)
