Remember when travel was a thing?

Well, it’s not much of a thing right now, at least not here in the United States. The big plan for my upcoming vacation is to vacate out of my office, and vacate into the other room for a week of popsicle-enhanced knitflixing.

But it hasn’t always been this way, and we hope it won’t always be this way.

For now, we have wonderful armchair traveling to do. Here are three perfect trips from MDK’s archive of travel pieces.

The Near

Last summer, Cristina Shiffman showed us around her home town, Chicago. Not everyone would remember the Art Institute with a dishcloth tribute, but Cristina did.

The Far

Just one year ago, Ann went to Iceland, land o’ lava. That was so 2019! I wish she hadn’t put her business in the street and told everybody how she didn’t knit a stitch the whole time she was there. But that’s Ann: honest. It really looks like it was a great time.

The Farther

Our newest contributor, Solène Le Roux, took us on a fascinating trip to the Finistère region of Brittany, France. It’s a lovely, yarny getaway with a knowledgeable local guide, so vivid you can taste the crêpes.


  • I just bought my first lopapeysa and lopi yarn from etsy, and am dreaming of combining the two, new cardigan perhaps. I dream of going to Iceland also, and have mentioned this to Boyfriend and coworkers already! We knitters will triumph!❤

  • Knitflixing!!! A new verb!

  • This is how I am traveling these days.

    • Wow, that’s a rabbit hole and a half! Thanks for sharing, I will never be bored again 😀

  • The comments on your Brittany article inspired me to inspire my chef sister who is staying with me right now to whip up a batch of Kouign Amann pastries. Best. Pastry. Ever. Salty and sugary and flaky crispy all at once….
    I love all the things I learn here!

    • Best. Cake. Ever. I need a sister like yours <3.

    • I remember when that was a Technical Challenge on Great British Bake Off! They’ve stayed in my head as one of the most tempting things I’ve ever seen.

    • Oh stop Martha! Too tempting!
