Welcome to a new edition of MDK Gems: everybody’s favorite feature of the month, where we spotlight a beloved MDK Field Guide design and give you special savings on a yarn we think you’ll love.
For April, the yarn: Isager Tvinni.
The offer? Save 10% on all Tvinni for a short time—through Monday, April 25, use the coupon code TVINNI.
I’ve admired Isager Tvinni for years. Lambswool, in a fingering weight. Rustic versus slippery, nonsuperwash, the pride of Denmark!
The colors with an S in the name are dyed on a gray base; the others are on a white base. It’s matter of whether you prefer clear color or a heathered effect.
See all the details and all 20 colors up close at our Tvinni product page. Remember: 10% off through next Monday, coupon code TVINNI.
The Spectra Sweater
For our MDK Gems project of the month, we turn our sunbeam to the Spectra Pullover, a design by Cecelia Campochiaro that is a highlight of Field Guide No. 19: Marls.
How much of the five colors will you need? You’ll find all the size and quantity details here, on Ravelry.
I really, truly, completely loved this project. Working marls—holding two strands of yarn—is a whole new party. Combining colors with marling is my kind of catnip, and we’re hearing from other Spectra makers that this is a great pairing of pattern and yarn.
The minute I finished it, I started wearing my Spectra and kept wearing it.
I went extra wide because I was craving CozywearTM, and let me tell you, I am cozy.
The marled strands of Tvinni knit up to a lofty and very lightweight fabric, really great.
Maybe you’ve been eyeing this project and thinking wow that would be fun to make. You’re right: the side-to-side construction is cool, and the result is one you’ll wear all the time. It’s one of my favorite sweaters, ever.
Hope you’ll hop on the MDK Gems bandwagon—ask me anything about this project in the comments, and I’m happy to help. And scroll down for links to posts we’ve published about our experience with the Spectra Sweater and Tvinni.
