Hi guys! Thank you Thank you Thank you for playing along with Crazy Eights today. We had high hopes of being able to keep this up for the duration but it’s just not going to be possible. However, by really narrowing the focus of the update and scraping the bottom of the barrel so to speak, we were able to eek out a little extra to try something new and see if we could accommodate more people. Please be sure to sign up for our enewsletter, follow us on Facebook, or join our Ravelry group for details on the next update!

Our game of Crazy Eights has been so much fun! It has also been a great way for us to hear what floats your boat. Oh the things we have learned! We had over 800 responses and many of them carried multiple color votes. As we have been tabulating the entries, let me just say that we were always happy to come upon any list of multiple colors that was in alphabetical order!

Now, a word about the colors that made the top eight. We did use our dyer’s prerogative to be sure that our eight colors all played well together. So what ended up happening is we have a Scummy/Muted Team and a Brights Team. It just seemed logical to have two teams made up of four players each. You know all games need a referee, so I took the two top neutral colors and made them the umpires!

Crazy-Eights-Brights

Crazy-Eights-muted-scum

Crazy-Eights-Neutrals

Bases – now this was a REAL tough one. Because we are trying something new and want to include as many as possible for as long as possible I have chosen the bases as follows:

Trusty
Lace
Bello Worsted
Traveler Aran (due to recent changes in how we handle TA, I am particularly happy with how Tuscadero, Bohemian, Jazz Hands, Wintry Mix, Morticia, Chocolate Crinkle and Ogre will play on TA!)
Scholar
Feet
Bello Fingering
Traveler Sport

Please note: This is a pre-order update and will ship according to our pre-order policies, volume and capacity.

Thank you so much for participating and casting your votes in the CRAZY EIGHTS thread and for joining us for today’s update!

Warmest Regards,
Sarah and the Plucky Crew

crazy eights

I have a plan for something super crazy and fun for our next update.

I’m still working out the details, BUT….I could use some help in picking the colors. All I am going to reveal at the moment is that I want you all to help us choose EIGHT colors for a Crazy EIGHTS Sale.

What is your dream color? Please head on over and use the brand new CRAZY EIGHTS thread and cast your vote. On Friday afternoon Hayley and I will tabulate the votes and come up with the EIGHT winning colors. I would have set up a poll, but then I would be choosing the colorways to pick from (not that Hayley and I won’t add our two cents, you can be sure we will!).

So, use your best powers of persuasion to gather votes for your favorite. Earburn your mother/sister/daughter/son/neighbor/babysitter/boss/DH, whom ever you can convince them to vote for YOUR favorite.

The update will be at NOON on Saturday 8/30 (get it, 8th month of the year!) and run for eight hours or until inventory and production time that we have set aside for this is exhausted.

Won’t you join us for a game of Crazy Eights!

Save the date!

It has been enthusiastically suggested by our pals in the Plucky group that our Plucky Classics colorways need to return for a limited engagement party. I have a soft spot for the Classics colorways so they didn’t have to twist my arm too hard!
