Dear knitter,

Welcome to your Saturday!

This Saturday is extra special—it’s Small Business Saturday. Like the red panda, we try to make ourselves look big to scare off predators, but we are a small business, through and through.

To encourage you to support our small business with your holiday shopping, we’ve got a special offer.

From now through Monday, order of $250 or more and you’ll receive our super-snazzy, limited-edition knitter hat—a $50 value. While supplies last.

Read all about it here. And here’s our Holiday Shop lookbook, full of special things for pretty much anybody on your list. It’s not all knitting!

Remember: Field Guide subscribers save 10% when using the monthly subscriber coupon code we emailed at the beginning of November—easy savings.

Meanwhile . . .  

We had a big time on MDK this week.

Jazz hands—who knew? Ergonomics expert Carson Demers shared lifesaving, comfort-enhancing tips for the last-minute holiday knitting rush

Kate Atherley has sure-fire tips on picking up stitches for a border, which you can save for later, or put to immediate use on Dee Hardwicke’s stunning Cottage Throw. 

Did your favorite knitting tool make the cut for the MDK Knitting Tool Hall of Fame? If not, be sure to let Ann know in the comments. 

Max Daniels on how sometimes we have to stop chasing what feels good—to feel better.

Our Atlas Insider knows a girl who always gets what she wants—and what she wants is mom-made sweaters. 

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—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.

Holiday Open House in Nashville, with Camellia Fiber Company!

On Friday afternoon, December 8, we’ll be throwing open the doors of our beloved World Headquarters in Nashville for festive shopping and togetherness. This event is open to all. $15 holds your place and will be credited back to purchases. Get your ticket here.

This just in! Fantastic news: our fellow Nashville small business Camellia Fiber Company will be our special guest vendor for this event. If you haven’t had a chance to experience Silbia Ro’s sumptuous bases and exquisitely tender colors in real life, you’re in for a treat.


Support What You Love: It’s Subscription Season

This is the time of year when we ask you to support all the free daily fun at MDK—including everybody’s favorite pajama read, Snippets—by subscribing to the three MDK Field Guides we will publish in 2024. 

Subscribers are the wind beneath MDK’s wings, and to show our gratitude, we’ve added more benefits for 2024 subscribers. And our special holiday shop subscription price makes this an easy decision. Read all about it—and subscribe—here. And thank you. 

Stocking Time Is Now

If you’re dreaming of knitting somebody a Christmas stocking, it’s time to get going! In our New Ancestral Stocking Kit, you’ll find four jolly shades of Atlas yarn that can make two stockings if you change the order of colors on your second stocking. And—you get your very own jingle bell. (We’re wildly excited about the jingle bell.)

Try It, You’ll Like It

Try a new craft! This year’s MDK Holiday Shop is all about going places and going home—we’ve got projects, storage solutions, arts & crafts, and even snacks to keep you going. Grab a few friends for an indigo dyeing day. Spend a little time as a watercolorist. These projects are superfun and easy—even for the earliest beginner—we promise.

Indigo Dye Kit. The quickest route possible to 100% natural indigo dyeing. The good folks at Stony Creek Colors have spent a ton of time figuring out an environmentally clean, speedy way to create your very own indigo vat. You are going to love this little kit.

Become one with watercolor! We fell in love with watercolor painting this year—so much that we have two sets of watercolors for you: a very simple set and a very fine set. And we found a beautiful book that teaches mindful painting.

Good Gear

By now you know we love the little things—down to the perfect mending tin. See it all in our Holiday Shop shoppable lookbook.

Travel Sewing Kit. For mending on the go. The perfect Italian-made sewing kit with all you need for a quick fix.

Recoleta Bag. Yes, the front pocket can hold MDK Field Guides. In 5 colors, the perfect tote for your on-the-go knitting project.

Treats for You

To give or (really) to keep for yourself. A bundle of chocolate from our favorite Nashville chocolate maker, Olive and Sinclair.

The brand-new 2024 MDK Calendar Tea Towel picturing knitters doing their thing.

And the best peanut butter, like, ever.

Give a Gift Card

The dazzling gift that always fits. Is always welcome. Makes it superfun to shop at MDK. Give the MDK Gift Card to your favorite knitter—they’ll love it.
