Shown in Plucky Bello. After Dark, Fondant, Milk Maid & Tiny Bubbles
I am so excited to be able to share with you the newest design from Gina House (a.k.a. SleepyEyes) and her first design for Plucky. When photos for the Camilla Shawl arrived in the studio, my mind began to race with the color and base possibilities. Knit in a single color, Camilla will be subtle yet dramatic. Or, you may want to play with multiple colors (3, 4, or even bind off with a 5th color perhaps?!), accentuating the lace. Whichever fingering base you choose, your Camilla will be gorgeous!
And what is better than debuting a new kit? How about a new kit AND a new custom Plucky base?! OXFORD is in the house and would be a fantastic choice for your Camilla Shawl.
If you choose Oxford for your Camilla, your finished shawl will be a light and lofty, blocking out a bit larger than if you knit it in one of the other fingering bases. And the juxtaposition of the more rustic (but still very luxurious – 25% cashmere after all!) spin of Oxford and the ladylike Camilla – well I just think it’s a match made in pattern/yarny heaven!
The Camilla kit will be offered on Thursday, July 24th at Noon Eastern on the Plucky Blog. Seth (good old Seth!) will set up drop down menus for all of the Plucky fingering bases (Feet, Primo Fingering, Bello, Single and Oxford) and I will be putting together the color options for him to set up as well.
Pay no attention to my dyeing attire, just had to show Camilla + Oxford in all their glory – Thank you Gina for such a lovely design!
Please keep an eye on the locked color thread for kit choices and pricing and be sure to post your thoughts in the Wishlist thread. We will email you the pattern within 48 hours of your purchase of a kit.
Thank you and happy knitting everybody!
P.S. Please note: Not all color combinations will be available across every base. The kits will be chosen based on how each individual base takes color. There will be kit offerings that are available in Primo Fingering, Feet, Single & Bello only. THEN there will be kits available in all bases, INCLUDING Oxford. They will be marked accordingly.
