With joy, we herald a batch of designs from the Doyenne of Des Moines, the Incredible Iowan, the designer who launched 18,000 Gaptastic Cowls.
The one and only Jen Geigley, take a bow. Welcome to MDK!
We’re thrilled to have you as the featured designer for MDK Field Guide No. 12.
Jen is many things: knitter, author, knitwear pattern designer, graphic designer, and knitting instructor. A modern sensibility, a ton of love in everything she makes—we’re gobsmacked by the world she is creating.
You can see Jen’s work in many publications, and most exquisitely in her six pattern collections she created herself, from start to finish: Weekend, Everyday, Visions, Visions Kids, Luna, and Chroma. Originally trained in the arts, she creates her own patterns, illustrations, schematics, and graphic design. She also designs for Quail Studio, and she has recently become a designer for Rowan Yarns.
Among the surprises of Jen, she’s a fan of metal and punk. We can’t wait to hear what she comes up with for her MDK Field Guide No. 12 playlist.
It’s going to be an amazing season of knitting.
THERE WILL BE PIE.
We’ve already had a ton of fun with Jen, who has worked for months with our Field Guide creative director Melanie Falick. This is a Field Guide that makes us so happy. In fact, Ann opened up the first proofs and literally burst into tears when she saw this Field Guide.
What’s the Theme?
All will be revealed with Field Guide No. 12 launches on Friday, September 6. Please clear your calendar of all obligations for the next four months—we’re going to be knitting our heads off with the marvelous Jen Geigley. Can’t wait to show you everything she’s been up to.
