Dear knitter,

Welcome to your Saturday!

There’s no better way to celebrate the start of summer than a sale.

We’ve got a great one for you. A blowout, actually. A Really Big Sale!

This is your chance to get a great deal on something you’ve had your eye on, or stock up on a yarn you love. Little treats and special somethings abound!

It’s also your chance to show support for all the free daily content on MDK. Every morning, we bring you the best writers, teachers, and travel guides we know. Beautifully presented and freely shared—and every bit funded by purchases in the MDK Shop.

If you haven’t shopped with us yet, we urge you to support what you love, and have a great shopping experience while you’re at it.

No coupon code necessary—prices have already been marked down. Scroll down to see what’s in store!

Join Us for a Launch Day Zoom with Olga!

Friday is a glorious, long-awaited day! It’s the launch of Field Guide No. 24 starring the designs of Olga Buraya-Kefelian.

We’re really looking forward to our Zoom conversation with Olga on Friday, June 2 at noon Eastern time. Sign up here to receive an email with the Zoom link.

Olga is one of the most fascinating designers we’ve ever met, so this is going to be a very juicy conversation. Bring your knitting!

Meanwhile . . .

We had a big time on MDK this week.

We were shaken and stirred—by Carol Sulcoski’s fascinating tales of knitting spies.

Fifty years of fleece fumes: jump into Jillian Moreno’s suitcase and tag along to the famed Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival.

While you’re on the East Coast, head north with ace photographer Gale Zucker, for a glowing Knitter’s Weekend in Corning, New York.

rare hybrid Kay and Ann post, in which Kay is predictable, and Ann is … un. Very much un. (Note: we are extending our MDK Gems promotion one more day so all you lollygaggers can clamber onto this bandwagon.)

We know that knitting makes us feel better—fascinating to hear Max Daniels explain exactly why that’s the case. Loving the comments on this post.

Ann’s Knit to This recommendation sparked a list of readers’ favorite Kate Winslet performances that could last you all summer. Which one’s your favorite?

Remember to enter this week’s giveaway by midnight Central time Sunday night. The prize: a plump skein of pristine sock yarn from Neighborhood Fiber Co. in the best green.
