Whenever I show up at MDK World Headquarters, it’s a thrill to see what everybody is knitting during our team Zooms and lunch breaks and such.
Really though, the thrill is that people are knitting. It’s not just me and Ann and our weird little knitting ways anymore, it’s a bunch of people with weird little knitting ways.
When people learn to knit, it ignites a wonderful crafty curiosity. They venture out to explore all the things there are to knit, and they come back with beautiful surprises. Their finds then ignite another knitter’s curiosity, and the chain of inspiration is unbroken. It’s the thing I love most about knitting—it’s always new. There’s always something exciting to knit, someone is always showing me something wonderful that I hadn’t even thought of.
If you piled up all of Team MDK’s knitting on a table, I’m pretty sure I could match each project with its knitter. Knitting personality is a thing, and it shows itself very early in a knitter’s journey.
