Dear knitter,

Welcome to your Saturday!

Are you wandering around the house in a hot chocolate-induced haze? We sure hope so! We’ve got our feet up, with no plans to budge except for a glass of bubbles to ring in the New Year.

While you’re relaxing, we invite you to take a peek at our epic Year End Sale, where you’ll find savings of up to 50% on things we absolutely love.

We’re so grateful to everyone who has let us know that MDK is an important part of their knitting life. Thank you for keeping us going by shopping with us—we appreciate your support more than we can say.

Here’s an easy way to show the love: subscribe to the MDK Field Guides for 2024—so many benefits, and special holiday pricing that ends on January 1!

Meanwhile . . .

We had a big time on MDK this week.

What we got in our stockings: the Beatles’ 1963 Christmas record for their fan club. We were too young then, but we’re lifetime members now.

Ever think about packing your knitting in a camper van and roaming the backroads? Judy Nichols is doing just that. 

Samantha Brunson asked Instagram for crafty resolutions for the new year, and boy did folks deliver.

All things must pass, including our super special holiday price for subscribing to the MDK Field Guides of 2024. Future you will be so happy to get mailbox joy throughout next year, and you’ll be supporting MDK the whole year through. (Thank you!)

Long, easeful rows, with a spicy moment of colorwork: that’s Kay’s Blossom Stripe Shawl.

DG’s Knit to This: the perfect movie for the holidays.

As we head into a brand-new year, we thank you all for supporting MDK throughout 2023. With knitting, there is never a shortage of joy to share, so we’re excited about all the fun ahead in 2024.

Questions? Email us anytime at, and you’ll get a prompt personal response from a real live MDK person.

Stay healthy, take care of each other, and knit on.

Those Pencils

  • Just before Christmas, my daughter-in-law asked for advice about learning to knit. She lives across the country (and they weren’t coming home for the holidays) so of course I offered to be available for any questions — and I sent her a Skill Set Box of Joy! It arrived the day after Christmas, and she sent me a photo of her first project a day later — a little catnip toy from a recent Knitty magazine. It really was a box of joy — to me, to her, and probably to Tony and Cinda, their cats.

    Highly recommend. Also, I just managed to get the sale price with subscriber’s early access. Happy New Year everyone!
