Dear friends and fellow constant knitters:
As we’ve mentioned, since last autumn we’ve been up to our elbows in plans for our new website, which is still on schedule to launch in late September.
We have a question for you.
We’re making a brand-new series of little books that will explore the big world of knitting.
Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guides will be small in format, beautiful to look at, and fun to knit from. Every two months or so, a new volume will explore a theme and a set of three patterns, from designers we all love. And it will include stories and surprises along the way.
A dream team is at work on this project. Leading the way as Editor and Creative Director is legendary editor/author Melanie Falick. Sara Remington is taking the (gorgeous) photographs, and Will Brady is creating the elegant graphic design. Sue McCain is the technical editor. Designers:
Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 1
Mary Jane Mucklestone
Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 2
Michele Rose Orne
Every pattern we explore is a project we’re eager to knit. That’s how we pick what to include. The yarns we feature each have something great about them. These yarns will be available to buy on MasonDixonKnitting.com as kits, often in unique, limited colorways.
We’re about to set a print order for Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 1, and we don’t know how many to print. New projects are so . . . new. So here’s our question:
Would you like to reserve a copy?
If this sounds like fun, please reserve your copy here.
When you reserve a copy now, you’ll be among the first to receive it in early October. The price is yet to be set, but it won’t be more than $20. No payment is necessary to reserve your copy today—and you’re not making a commitment now to buy a copy. It’s just a huge help to hear from you if you’re interested.
Thanks for considering this. We can’t wait to knit along with you when the first Field Guide arrives.
Kay and Ann
