Veera’s super cute and clever Stripe Study.

It’s about time~

For something new on the needles.

  • Pretty Peacock – Primo Fingering
  • Barely Birch – Merino SW Fingering (more than likely will be the main color).
  • Stripe Study Shawl

Know what else it’s about time for? A shop update, that’s what – It’s been ages!

Sneak-Up in the shop tomorrow, Wednesday, March 23rd beginning sort of bright and early-ish and going throughout the day. There will be all kinds of goodies, including sweater quantities, onesies twosies, Smocked Slouch kits, a few pre-orders, cashmere and more.

Salted Caramels

Burke Candy – Salted Caramels (the dark chocolate were the first to go). A gift from a Ktmay12. Thank you Katie!

Madison or bust ~

getting ready to go~

Last minute prep for the show today – then packing up later this evening and headed out first thing in the morning to Madison. Then, after a whirlwind weekend it will be back to business as usual. And I, for one, (as much as I love going out to shows and meeting everyone) am looking forward to that!

Just wanted to pop in and say hi, have a great weekend and looking forward to being back in the forums in full force next week – with more dyeing (catch-up and dyeing ahead), a shop update (no, make that TWO) and just getting my ducks back in a row. Oh, and maybe knit a few rows (been working on a little secret knitting and now that that is finished it’s on to a new project).

See you next week!

pom pom's!

hittin' the road

Maile Sweater– The parade of test knits continues and I’m completely blown away by each and every one of them. This darling little cardigan is knit out of Primo fingering – taking less than one skein (newborn/3 months).

Smocked Slouch & a Shop Update too~

A one skein project? Smocked stitch? Slouchy hat? What’s not to love?!

I’m so excited to be able to share with you Jill’s new (and first ever) pattern. Can you believe it’s her first pattern?!

How can you get Jill’s adorable new pattern and the Plucky Primo to go along with it? For a limited time the Smocked Slouch pattern will be sold as a kit through my etsy store which brings me to… a shop update on Sunday, March 6th, 8:00 p.m. Eastern.  The hat patterns will be sold as kits (one pattern and one skein of Primo worsted in your choice of a Plucky repeatables colorway).

Well done Jill!
