Ann + Kay have a unique way of giving you the confidence you need to make it your own! This module will awaken the designer lurking inside you.
Release that work-in-progress guilt and free yourself to cast on as much as you like, make what feels good and simply enjoy the process. The joy is in the making!
If two of the world's top yarn curators say you can make that fair isle sweater, you can...and you will! Knitters of all levels will relate and expand how they approach their project queue.
Too often, we save "the good yarn" for when we are "good enough." Let Kay + Ann give you the permission you need to explore a wider variety of fibers and rethink your yarn collection.
You'll laugh, you'll relate and you'll laugh some more as Ann + Kay get you energized, empowered and prepare to knit 👏 all 👏 the👏 things!
With backgrounds in publishing and law, Ann Shayne and Kay Gardiner combined their love of knitting and words, going from bloggers to best-selling pattern book authors to creating Modern Daily Knitting: a place where knitters can find inspiration in projects, yarn and all things fiber, daily.
Their Knit Stars Season 3 Masterclass marked the first time that Ann and Kay let film cameras into their world - and the Knit Stars universe instantly fell in love with them! They share an insatiable curiosity for emerging designers, patterns, yarns and techniques. Beyond that, their style is equal parts deadpan, hilarious and relatable.
Like a great novel, you'll find yourself never wanting this workshop to end. And the best part? You own it, so you can return to it again and again, any time your spirits need lifting and your creative mojo needs a reboot.
As Ann and Kay debunk each myth, they provide pattern names that can help you overcome these limiting beliefs. Explore patterns that are Ann and Kay approved with a simple and beautifully formatted PDF.
I'm Shelley Brander, the founder of Knit Stars, and I know how it can feel to be alone in your creative passion. For my first few decades as a knitter, I was on my own! When, at age 35, I pivoted from my broadcast production career and opened a local yarn store, I saw firsthand how one great teacher can truly change your knitting life.
I created Knit Stars to bring the best teaching to knitters and crocheters around the globe. I used to be afraid to fly, but now I travel to remote locations around the world, taking you directly into the homes and studios of the most brilliant designers and difference-makers.
Now in its 9th year, Knit Stars has become a learning platform like no other. With feature-film quality production, documentary yarn stories combined with workshops you own and can return to again and again. Knit Stars gives us all a place to grow - in confidence and connection.
I personally invite you to join us. Wherever you are in your journey, you truly deserve the Knit Stars Masterclass experience. You and your creativity are worth it!
Watching Ann & Kay now. Their messages are perfectly timed for me! Their message reinforcing that knitting is your hobby, not your job, strikes such a familiar chord! And I love all the samples they've shown. Now I'm all fired up about log cabin. I realize it's the perfect method for an odd sized table cover I've been searching for!

"It was lovely to have Ann and Kay of [Modern Daily Knitting] come to my living room this afternoon to share our joy of knitting! I missed my knitting group meeting this week because of a bad cold - this more than made up for it.
And thank you Knit Stars for the pacing. After two sessions of lots of swatching, it was great just to visit, make new friends, see lots of beautiful knits, and be inspired.
If you haven't already, make MDK web site a regular destination."
