Shindig After Party Instant Gratification Update!

It’s time for the Shindig After Party Instant Gratification update!

As something special for all of our Plucky Friends (and especially for those who weren’t able to join us at the recent Plucky Shindig) we are happy to announce an After Party IG update that will be full of creative and fun possibilities for your cool weather knitting (winter IS coming!). Many bases and colors will be available just perfect for jumping right into Plucktober or your favorite Fall Back pattern.

I can’t even begin to tell you how excited we are to begin to see new WIPs and FOs from the Fall Back collection pop up in the threads. What a thrill! If you’re looking for a few shopping ideas, Jill(aka Knitterella) is hosting an Omena KAL in the Ravelry group for this sure-to-be-a-wardrobe-staple vest!  Or how about Michele Wang’s Quadri hat for that single skein of SNUG Worsted to ease you into building your cool weather wardrobe? And we can’t forget about the plethora of options that many amazing designers and Plucky friends are offering in the Plucktober 2015 Designer/Retailer thread.  Oh, if I remember correctly, we definitely had a few skeins of cashmere left from the Shindig and while packing, I couldn’t help but think of the possibilities for a few pairs of Burning Leaves or a Freeze Warning by Amy Miller.

It’s not truly a Plucky After Party without those mystery kits! I’m thinking Peak Color mystery kits (five color and two color kits of assorted fingering weights – #mixthosebases!!!) would be a fun addition to the update as well as 3 and 6 skein tasting menus and our other mystery offerings.

The After Party IG update will be Friday morning, September 18th at 9:00 am EDT and, because I would hate for anyone to miss out on the party, again at 8:00 pm EDT Friday evening in the Plucky ETSY Shop.  And please join us in the update chatter thread in the Plucky group on Ravelry on Friday morning (and again Friday evening) where we will be chatting away!

Shipping will begin on Tuesday, September 22nd. Please remember that it takes a little extra time to get the IG orders all out the door. Those mystery kits take us a while – we love to match them up to you as well as we possibly can – all the while trying to add in something unexpected (so fun!).
