These are busy, great days here at MDK. A lot of seeds planted months ago are sprouting just now, and Kay and I are out in the yard with such happiness (and mud boots, and mukluks—so much crazy spring weather), watching it all come to life. We have a lot of fun ahead for you in the coming weeks and months.
This Friday, we’ll launch Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 6.
I’m looking at a copy right now—it is just so beautiful.
The elegance of this Field Guide has everything to do with the designer whose work is featured.
We’re delighted to share the news that the designer for Field Guide No. 6 is Amy Christoffers.
She has been one of our favorite designers ever since we caught sight of one of her first designs, the Acer Cardigan, back in 2010. Right out of the gate, Amy showed a distinctive sensibility—combining classic silhouettes with modern twists—that really dazzled us.
With hundreds of designs, Amy has explored the intersection of texture, structure, color, and style. There is something so irresistible about her patterns. She knows what makes a project fun to knit. And she is fearless when it comes to working with new techniques.
It was completely unsurprising when she was tapped to become Design Director of Berroco Yarns. They are lucky to have her.
And we are lucky that she found time to work on this new Field Guide with us. I think you’re going to be as inspired by her work as we are.
And by inspired, I mean eager to cast on.
The big launch comes on Friday. What’s the theme for this Field Guide? We’ll let you know soon! (If by chance you have an idea about it, please keep it on the down low!)
P.S. We’re excited that so many of you are joining us on our Knit Stars adventure this fall. Welcome! For more information, and to sign up for the earlybird deal, here you go.
