We love warmer weather, we love lighter bases and we really love this new design from Knitterella. Our great friend, Jill Zielinski, (aka Knitterella) has scored “a knitter’s trifecta”, combining Lodge fingering, an easy breezy accessory, in a three-color exclusive Plucky kit. April Snow is a great way to accessorize sleeveless tops, cropped jeans, and little summer dresses. This is a super quick, easy, and fun knit, combining intentionally dropped stitches and garter bands of color, in an airy asymmetrical shawl.
April Snow calls for Lodge Fingering and we have a great line-up of Plucky fingering weight bases for you to choose from! Although it’s not written for sport weight, can you just imagine this in pure Cashmere or with Traveler (that yak & silk..oh, the drape!)?! We think it would be gorgeous and are offering sport as an option too, should you feel intrepid and want to give it a go! Just keep in mind, it will effect your yardage (so the sport kits will each have an extra skein of MC)!
*Please keep in mind that the combos featuring Small Batch colorways will only be available on these select bases!
Hayley and I are already knee deep in planning great color combos and base options that we think will be super fun… and maybe just a wee bit unexpected! Here’s a little taste of the combos you can expect to find on Wednesday, but you never know what I might sneak in at the last minute!:
If your weekend plans include a trip to Wool and Honey, in Cedar, MI, you will find a Plucky trunk show to help celebrate their “Sweet Sixteen” anniversary. Hayley and I will be on hand (along with a very nice selection of Plucky yarns) to help you select colors for what ever you are planning and to take additional pre-orders for April Snow! We are really looking forward to saying “Hello!” to old friends and meeting lots of new friends!
Please join us on the Plucky Blog, Wednesday, May 25th, at 9:00 a.m. and again at 8:00 p.m, EDT. As per usual with our “mystery kits”, you may leave us a note in PayPal prior to check-out if you have a preference for colors or bases. We’ll do our best to accommodate your request with what we have available! If all goes well, mystery kits might ship early, depending upon what Hayley and I put together for you. You will find an option to choose your base and then drop down menus to choose your color combination. We may even sneak a few mystery kits into the update, too!
