SOLD OUT. Thank you so much for joining us this evening!
Has stranded color work been on your to-learn list? One of our favorite designers, Amy Miller, brings us a straightforward beginner’s colorwork pattern for a hat and scarf that would be the perfect introduction to this technique. Here is your chance to dip your toe in the water if you haven’t done colorwork before. For those already familiar with the technique, this is a very simple knit with eye-popping possibilities!
We have put kits together with color combos that can be soft and muted or loud and funky. Let’s have some fun!
Each kit will contain the pattern, your choice of one of (4) bases – Bello Fingering, Primo Fingering, Plucky Feet or Plucky Single – and the color combo of your choice. Each kit, regardless of base is (5) skeins total – (3) MC and (1) each of CC1 and CC2.
Shipping is already included in the price of the kits shown below – the cost is the same for U.S. and international shipments. Please note: Multiple kit purchases for international buyers will be combined and we will be unable to send these separately.
All prices shown in USD, include yarn, the exclusive On the Dot accessory pattern and flat rate shipping. The pattern PDF will be emailed to kit purchasers within 24-48 hours after the update has completed to the email associated with the PayPal account used to complete your purchase. The pattern will not be available as an immediate Ravelry download nor will hard copies of the pattern be sent with the yarn. Yarn for the kits will ship the week of June 2, 2014. And again, multiple kit purchases for international buyers will be combined and we will be unable to send these separately.
We hope you enjoy On the Dot and we can’t wait to see the color combo you choose!
Thank you very much and have a great day~
Sarah and The Plucky Crew
Whether you lived the 60s and 70s or just heard it from your parents, who doesn’t smile when they think of lava lamps, Sonny and Cher, Macramé and bell bottoms. Then there’s color. Nothing says 60’s and 70’s/hippie chic better than color. Psychedelic colors. Earth tones. Mellow yellows, oranges and limes. Explosive and vibrant colors all melting into each other.
We have taken the psychedelic 60’s & 70’s and given it a modern twist. The colors will still be lively and fun or mellow and moody on their own, but will play nicely with today’s neutrals. In fact, how about mixing some Hippie Chic with a dash of an unexpected bright, a scummy green or one of the Blues or Gray Club offerings? There are no rules. Let it be, let it be. I can feel the love!
With the Hippie Chic Club you purchase your desired quantity and base at the time of the update, and then when you receive your yarn the color is a surprise! When it is decided that the Hippie Chic Club will again be offered, you would then decide if you want to purchase another installment and do so. There is no recurring payment or commitment beyond what you manually purchase each time the yarn is offered. The main thing to remember is that you will be surprised when you see it because a picture of the colorway(s) won’t be released prior to it shipping to you.
What is it?: Hippie Chic Club – just like the Knittin’ The Blues & the Just The Grey’s club.
When: This week, Thursday, April 17th at Noon AND at 6:00 p.m. Eastern on the Plucky Blog.
Bases Available: Feet, Primo Fingering, Primo Worsted & Single
This will be fun!
It’s always a good day when we can multi-task. You know how it works. Pushing the grocery cart and texting. Or getting your hair done, a mani & a pedi … at the same time (a gal can dream!). This update (this Sunday, April 13th at 8:00 pm Eastern here on the Plucky Blog), I thought it would be fun to put one color family in the spotlight and build gradient possibilities – at the same time!
So I pulled all the Plucky aquas from our list of repeatables and have placed them into one eye popping (for the aqua lovers) line up. In addition to picking up the color(s) that speak to your love for all things aqua, this will give you the opportunity to build your own gradient with the exact number of skeins you want. For some of us, three shades of aqua will be the perfect fit for a project we have in mind. But there are others who would may not want to stop at three and have ideas for a more graduated gradient, needing at least five shades. And, just for good measure, I have carefully selected a few neutrals that work beautifully with our April Aquas. Jack of All Trades, of course, and so many others. So, here is your roadmap – where will it take you?
Please note that while the update on Sunday will feature the Plucky aqua’s, that won’t be all! Here’s a list of all the colorways and bases available.
