It’s a big day here at MDK. After months of keeping a delicious secret all to ourselves, we are thrilled to reveal the designer whose work will grace the next MDK Field Guide.
Joji burst onto the stage more than 10 years ago, when she published her first design, a cardigan that she modeled herself. Since that first leap, Joji has continued to forge her vision, which has unfolded in hundreds of designs, made by thousands of knitters, each one fueled by Joji’s curiosity. To complement the knits, she has expanded her enterprise to include leather bags and accessories designed with the particular needs of knitters in mind.
We’ve knitted and admired Joji’s work for years. Early in the life of MDK, Joji—known for hiking the world’s mountains, deserts, and forests—joined us and a group of early-rising knitters for a wintery (and slightly sedate) stroll through Central Park. We might have nursed a small dream that one day we would be working with Joji on a Field Guide—we’re nothing if not ambitious. Today, we’re pinching ourselves that it’s no longer a dream.
To our joy, we all will have the chance to dive into Joji’s vision in Field Guide No. 22, launching three weeks from today, on September 16.
