Dear Everybody,

This is the last post we wrote before packing up a wildly unrealistic number of knitting projects and pointing the car toward New York’s shimmering Hudson Valley, the home this weekend for two gatherings of fiber folk that we did not want to miss.

If you’re going, too, we would love to see you! Here’s where to find us.

(Today) Friday, October 14

MDK is proud to be a sponsor of Wool & Folk, the all-day party that goes from noon to 7 p.m. today at the Hutton Brickyards in Kingston. Co-founders Felicia Eve and Catherine Clark call it “a celebration of our diverse, inclusive, and extraordinary fiber community,” and we can’t wait.

On Tuesday, October 11 Kay was Felicia’s guest on IGTV live here.

We’ll be there all day, with Atlas yarn to mong (we are yarnmongers, after all) and all the visiting we can cram into seven hours.

There’s so much fun to be had at this bighearted gathering, from watching podcasters recording their shows live at the MDK Podcast Patio, to coordinating meetups with friends at the MDK Meetup Field, to scrumpy snacks from world-famous Milk Bar, the official Snack Sponsor of Wool & Folk.

Atlas loadout! We’re bringing 15 skeins of each color.

And yarn. Tons of great vendors. Including us!

If fun in a beautiful outdoor setting sounds good to you, please join us. Tickets are available here.

(Tomorrow) Saturday, October 15

Tomorrow we’re spending all day in the book barn (also known as Building B) at the New York Sheep & Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, where we’ll give a talk at 2:00. (What is our talk about? We don’t know! Please bring us your burning questions.)

We’d love to see you, so do stop by. We’ll have Field Guides, of course, and some very tantalizing samples for knitters to inspect.

Sunday, October 16

We’ve reserved Sunday for wandering, lollygagging, meandering, and otherwise soaking up the pleasures of the so-called “quiet day” of the New York Sheep & Wool Festival in Rhinebeck. If you spot us, give us a shout!

Whether we see you at the brickyards, the fairgrounds, or on the internet, we wish you a beautiful weekend of knitting.


Ann and Kay


  • Only 15 skeins of each color?? I bet they fly out of the tote bags! Have fun!

  • See you soon! So excited! Sweaters are ready!

  • Cannot wait – see you soon!

  • My first Rhinebeck visit. I will try to find you on Saturday. Love to see you guys in person!

  • Bighearted gathering. Within a bighearted craft. So wish I could be there. I would get my best haircut so as not to look goofy when I met you guys. (Not looking goofy takes an army these days LOL) Maybe, maybe next year. Have a wonderful time. Looking forward to the posts and the photos. Chloe

  • Very fond memories of my first and hopefully, not last visit to Rhinebeck in 2017. The weather was perfect and we got to meet both of you!

  • It should be epic! See you there.

  • Can’t wait to meet you all!

  • My first trip to Rhinebeck. I hope to see you!

  • Can’t wait!!! Will see you there!!!!

  • First Rhinebeck since 2018 for me! So excited, it’ll be like my very first visit. I’ll be the one in the purple and gold Birdsong sweater, until it gets too hot….

  • I wish! Have a wonderful weekend!!

  • Have a great friend and fiber-filled time!

  • Are you sure Olive and Kermit said you could take a few days off?

  • what a great cover photo of the chairs and skeins!

  • Have a great time! I am GOING to go next year And I’ll see you guys in Nashville next month!!

  • Wow, girls. Did you ever dream that knitting would have this kind of stage and that you’d be on it? Have a ball!

  • I hope to get there one day!
    Have fun, sell lots, make new friends!

  • Safe travels and happy trails! Can’t wait to hear all about it!

  • I’ll be in Rhinebeck on Sunday – I always pop down on the quiet day. My daughter (5) is an old pro, but this will be my son’s first fiber festival. Thankfully my mom is coming too, so I’ll get a little time to focus on all the yarn and fiber. Hopefully I’ll see you around!

  • “…packing up a wildly unrealistic number of knitting projects…” — hey, I resemble that remark!
