Dear knitter,

Welcome to your Saturday!

Have you heard our big news? This week we revealed the designer for the next MDK Field Guide—our 26th!—which will launch soon. Quick—go find out who it is! We’re thrilled with knitters’ response to our happy announcement.

Subscribers get first access to each new Field Guide, and we ship subscriber copies two weeks before the official launch date. If you haven’t yet, it’s time to subscribe to the MDK Field Guides for 2024—so many benefits, including 10% savings on every MDK full-price item, all year long. And you’ll have our deep gratitude for supporting everything that MDK does.

Meanwhile . . .

We had a big time on MDK this week.

It’s always great to receive a new letter from our man in Paris, Franklin Habit, and this one was beautiful.

Do your yoke sweaters suffer from bubbling in the back? Patty Lyons has excellent fixes for that perplexing problem, for a yoke that fits.

Crispy and full of umami: Sarah Ross pulled a brilliant brussels preparation from the recipe file.

Our beautiful Botanica knitalong is in the books, while continuing on into eternity. We celebrated the projects that took the prizes.

Tasers! Flashbacks! Puppets! DG Strong catches up with the new season of a favorite grim comedy.

As ever, we thank you all for supporting MDK through thick and thin. Every morning, we bring the best writers, teachers, and knitting to you, free of charge. This is only possible because of your purchases from the MDK Shop—thank you!

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.

Your Journal, Your Way

At the start of a new year—or anytime, really—we recommend the online course that made keeping a journal a joyful mainstay of our lives: Felicity Ford’s self-paced bullet journaling course. Use MDK’s affiliate link and this code: MODERNDAILYKNITSONIK—to enroll for 10 percent off! (Thanks, Felix!)

Did you miss our Zoom with Felix this week? Fear not: here’s the recording. To get the most out of it, bring a sheet of paper, a writing implement, and extras to add to your fun: stickers, colored pencils, rubber stamps, tape. Heck, get out the watercolors—whatever gets you excited.

Need a journal? As promised, we’ve got new colors of the Felix-approved bullet journal, the mighty Leuchtturm 1917, right here.

Stunning Shima Shima

Save 25% on Olga Buraya-Kefelian’s Shima Shima Wrap Kit. Knit up stripes in Woolfolk Tynd—one of the softest, drapiest yarns—in garter stitch blocks that combine the main color brilliantly with three gradients.

Support What You Love

Did you know there’s an easy way to support all the free daily fun at MDK? Subscribing to the three MDK Field Guides we will publish in 2024 is a powerful way to keep us going.
