coming up

The Plucky etsy shop will be filled to the brim tomorrow, Thursday, April 21st – a sneak-update will be going through the day tomorrow starting at approximately 11:00 a.m. Eastern and continue through the afternoon.

While we’re at it, how about I share with you the update schedule for the rest of the month?

1. Small sneak-up on Thursday, April 21st
2. Sneak-up Monday, April 25th
3. Scheduled update Sunday, May 1st (close enough to April, right?)

Please note, in addition to colorwork kits, primo fingering weight pre-orders and Smocked Slouch kits, there will be quite a number of sale skeins making an appearance as well and, don’t forget, free shipping too!

Liz M.  “I’ll be flinging open my windows and enjoying the warm weather (well, warm for the upper Midwest)! Which reminds me, I need to shop for some new blinds for those windows — something else to do this weekend.”

Thanks, everyone, for playing along. Who knew tangled yarn was so popular? There is no shortage of tangles to be had around here so I think this needs to be a monthly feature of the blog. More to come in May!

best weather

In the spirit of flinging windows open to let in the warm spring breezes here is a light and refreshing cocktail. My no-name summer drink of choice.

  • 1.5 shots peach or citrus flavored vodka
  • 1 can Squirt (or citrus flavored soda – diet or regular)
  • ice

Enjoy~

Thea and I have been at it again – Narragansett, the much anticipated second installment of the Moody Broody Grey club is ready!

The Narragansett pullover is knit from the top down (so you can easily alter the fit as you go – don’t you just love that?), with fitted 3/4 length sleeves and a wide boat neck for a vintage vibe.  Width, length and sleeve choice can  easily be modified and the knitting is a breeze, with just enough detail to keep you busy.

Knit up in Plucky Primo Worsted, Merino Lite or MCN Lite in a moody shade of grayish blue (the kit will be available in Narragansett Gray, Barely Birch, Dark & Stormy and Map Room) to echo a cloudy day at the beach, it is the perfect sweater to throw on with a tank or tee (even a button down would be cute), your favorite jeans and head off to a pre-summer picnic, bbq, a walk on the beach or just sit outside and watch the flowers bloom.
