You guys! I am having the best time watching the photos of your WIPs and FOs from All Bundled Up pop up in the group!  It delights me to no end to see how you have embraced the patterns from ABU and are making them your own.  So many of you have been really stretching your skills, reaching for things that just a short time ago were not in your knitting repertoire.

Fair Isle is a case in point. Last January, I decided to expand my knitting repertoire and try my hand at stranded knitting. I had always been a little intimated by it (those floats!) but knew I had to jump in with “both hands” so to speak!  At first it felt a little weird and it was slow going. But, I’m glad to say I did it. And now it thrills me no end to see so many of you doing the very same thing! Your Northport’s are amazing! If you are still on the fence about trying out Fair Isle knitting and haven’t quite worked up the courage to start a Northport, may I suggest that you start out and test your skills with Amaryllis. This is the perfect starting point! Amaryllis is worked in a worsted weight yarn and is less than 20 rows of colorwork. That’s totally doable, knits up lightening fast and the results are great! In fact, I love the knit so much that I’m thinking of making a third one in Scholar.

And the color possibilities – they are endless! It’s Friday – are looking for a quick instant gratification weekend project?! Amaryllis is just the ticket! Happy weekend everyone!

 

 

 

ABU – The Update!


Shop Update, Sunday, January 11th, 8:00 pm EST & Monday, January 12th 9:00 am EST

This Sunday’s Blog Update is going to be so fun because it will be driven by what you have asked for. Not only will it be full to the brim with the bases and the colors you have asked for, it will also have kit offerings.You were kind enough to vote in a poll in our group on Ravelry and tell me the color kits you wanted to see in an update this weekend! And, the wishlist thread has been on fire. Thank you for taking the time let me know what you want.  So, let’s talk about a couple of our top vote getters!
Your enthusiasm for Sugarloaf has really put a smile on my face. This cowl is such an unexpected mix of lace and ribs, knit in a bulky weight yarn, then all tied together with the pop of a third color.  Because you voted in our poll in the Plucky group on Ravelry for Sugarloaf kits (kits available in SNUG only), I have put together some combos that I think will look smashing. But, I am pretty sure that you have some color combo ideas too!  A Sugarloaf kit in Snug may be the starting point for you.  Or, maybe you are thinking of using a different base?  Maybe going down a couple of needle sizes and casting on extra stitches?  I couldn’t agree more!A few Sugarloaf Options (and of course a mystery option!) as follows:





Once I began to post teaser photos, before the actual launch of All Bundled Up, it became apparent that Frostline was going to be a favorite. And, that was before the thermometer took a nose dive this week! Wrapping yourself in a worsted weight shawl is one of the best ways I know of to ward off a chill!  You might choose a subtle and sophisticated gradient for your Frostline kit, or something eye popping and guaranteed to brighten the dreariest winter day.

Please join us for this two part update on Sunday, January 11th, at 8:00 p.m. Eastern on the Plucky Blog and again Monday morning, January 12th at 9:00 a.m. Eastern as we bring you a pre-order update, filled with your favorite bases and colors.  And, yes, some new colors too!  Shown above are a sampling of the kits, and there will be more to come. Keep an eye on the Update & Announcement thread as I continue to add collages and post the final colorway list for the update.
