Update: 11/28 Ready to Ship!

THANK YOU for joining us today! We will be back soon with more yarny goodness. Have a lovely weekend!

 

Every year at this time we all seem to catch “Gotta-Have-It-Now” fever. We need quick knits for ourselves and for the special people in our lives. After all, we cannot have our sweeties walking around with cold noggins, necks and hands can we?!

PLUCKY HELP IS ON THE WAY! Please join us for a Ready To Ship update. And, because we want to thank you for being so wonderful, we are offering FREE SHIPPING on everything – no minimums! Ten colorways (vibrant, neutral, classic and my new love, Peninsula) on six of our favorite bases. And, this will also be your first opportunity to pick up one of our new Plucky totes with the brand new logo. Each bag has plenty of room for the biggest knitting project and is sturdy enough to carry just about anything you need to pack into it. This update, yarn and totes, will begin shipping on December 2nd.

Looking for some inspiration? Here are a few quick projects (some quicker than others) from my personal favorites list:

Final_Plucky-on5x5

Doesn’t it sometimes feel like good things come in three’s? I have three exciting things to share with you today. Here we go!

Ta da!!!…Introducing our new Plucky logo!

Well, here it is! Our new logo with its proud debut on our Plucky Knitter yarn. I hope you love it as much as I do! You’ll be seeing it on everything Plucky from yarn wraps to totes, t-shirts and, of course, on our website that debuts next month.

yarnbowl

As I’ve previously mentioned, our new logo symbolizes not only the somewhat whimsical, yet classic, Plucky style, but also the wonderful and treasured circle of friends who we’ve been privileged to serve over the years.

Our new logo has a different look and, at the same time, it captures the spirit and personality we’ve had since Day One when we started in 2007. So while it’s a change, we haven’t lost an ounce of what makes us Plucky! In fact, we’re more Plucky than ever!

Speaking of which…. and let’s file this under ‘It’s About Time!’ …. The Gadabout is finally ready to debut!

Gad-uh-bout. Noun. Def. A person who travels often or to many different places, especially for pleasure.

Our Plucky Gadabout cowl is just the ticket as you travel around the neighborhood or around the world. It is an open invitation to mix a multitude of bases and colors. Imagine the fun! Snug Worsted and Bello fingering? Snug Worsted and Cashmere (be still my heart!), Traveler Aran and Primo Fingering or Feet? SNUG bulky all on its own? Or, how about Scholar and Cashmere (yes, please!), or Scholar and Primo Fingering or Single?

There are no limits to what you might choose to do. And, once you have decided on the bases, you can then play with your color choices. You might want to mix two closely related colors or two that are just a smidge different (but not too different, just enough to still let those cables shine!) creating a very subtle tweed. What ever you choose, you will look fabulous in your Gadabout as you Gadabout town!

Gadabout is 25% off through the weekend using code: itsabouttime

Ready To ship 11-28

Bello Worsted too!

And for the grand finale, I’m pleased to announce a Ready to Ship update with Free Shipping this Friday at 9:00 a.m. Eastern here on the Plucky Blog!

We’re going to finish this week with a humdinger of an update! As an expression of appreciation to our wonderful customers, we will have ten colors on a variety of bases, all ready to ship and with free shipping. If you need to whip up some gifts (have some friends or family with cold noggins or necks!?) here is your chance. Or, maybe you have a knitter friend that deserves a skein (or two, or a SQ)? Look for a drop down menu on the blog on Friday, listing the ten colors and the bases that are available for each. And also available on Friday…. the new Plucky Tote bags! Please note this update will ship the week of December 1.

Update: Time for Gradients!

The colorwork/gradient update is sold out for the time being. We will be back soon with other base options. Thank you so much for stopping by!

It’s time for another round of the gradients!

Please join us for another oh-so-kicky and knock-your-socks-off Gradient Update! We are offering some brand new gradient and colorwork options as well as some of your old favorites. Hankering for some pinks? Scummy greens? Shaded plums? Something a little unexpected? I’m sure we have something just right for you!

All you have to do is first select 3 or 6 skein color kit, then choose the base that you want from the drop-down menu and then click the name of the actual gradient kit. This will bring you a pre-set group of either 3 or 6 colors, all in the base of your choice.

The 6 Skein Gradient Color Kits

The 3 Skein Gradient Color Kits

Please note: This update is a pre-order and can be expected to start shipping the week of December 19th, 2014.

Thank you for your enthusiasm for this colorwork update – I hope you see something you love!

Warmest Regards,
Sarah and the Plucky team

The More Things Change

PLCK-ChangeComing-Avatar

the more the stay the same…..

Change is in the air and it’s all about our new Plucky Knitter logo we’ll proudly debut on our yarn labels that will be featured in the next shipment to those of you who ordered from the 10/26 update. Our new logo has a different look and, at the same time, captures (even better, in my humble opinion!) the spirit and personality we’ve had since Day One. So, while it’s a change, we haven’t lost an ounce of what makes us Plucky! In fact, we’re more Plucky than ever!

Our new logo symbolizes not only the somewhat whimsical, yet classic, Plucky style, but also the wonderful and treasured circle of friends who we’ve been privileged to serve over the years. You’ll be seeing our new logo on everything Plucky…from our yarn labels to the blog to tote bags to t-shirts…you name it. Oh, and did I mention it will be all over a brand new Plucky website that will go live in December? (More to come later on that one.)

So, while you’ll see some exciting changes to our logo, I think you’ll agree we’re still the same Plucky Knitter–dedicated to hand-dyeing yarn in our unique, one-of-a-kind artisan colorways on custom luxury bases exclusively for you!

Stay tuned…. I think you’ll be tickled pink – or scummy!

Have a great day!

Update: Warren Sweater Kit

Thank you for joining us for Warren today! We are sold out for the time being. Please sign up for our enewsletter, follow us on Facebook, or join our Ravelry group for details on the next update!

A sweater kit from Amy Miller & The Plucky Knitter

Timing is everything and Amy is spot on with her newest sweater design. Warren is a classic menswear cardigan with lots of texture and detail, that is sure to become one of those “go to” pieces that serve us all so well. It is worked seamlessly from the top down, combining flat work, picked up stitches and a join under the arms to work the body in one piece. The collar and button bands are picked up and worked last.

Warren is a sweater that can double as a blazer for business casual or as season spanning outerwear when you don’t really need a heavy coat. For me, I am thinking of a Warren over jeans and a plaid shirt, all day, every day – that is until it’s time for pj’s then it’s Warren with assorted pajama’s – look how versatile!

Please join us on the Plucky Blog Monday, November 10th for a two part update at Noon Eastern and again at 8:00 P.M. Eastern as we proudly offer the Warren sweater kits.

Please note: The update on Monday is a pre-order and will ship the week of December 10th. And, as with other kits, Warren is an exclusive Plucky kit and will remain as such for the next four months. The pattern PDF will be emailed to you within 24-48 hours after the update concludes.

Thank you very much & our warmest wishes,

Plucky Classics Signups: Fall 2014

Sign-ups are closed at this time. Thank you very much!

Plucky Classics Logo NEW

It is that time again! Time to enroll in the new and improved Plucky Classics!

We are super excited to introduce our new and improved Classics Subscription. We needed to be sure that our new bases were included! So, rather than patch in the new bases to the existing program, we decided to go back to the drawing board and open up the sign ups, giving everybody the opportunity to choose anything they wanted.

Here is how the Classic Subscription works:

1. Upon enrollment (Monday, November 3rd), you will have the payment for your yarn deducted from your Paypal account. Subsequent payments will continue to be deducted, on the same date every other month, until you cancel your subscription.

2. At the end of every month following the deduction (December), your Classics order will be shipped to you. You will continue to receive yarn, every other month, until you cancel your subscription (December, February, April and so on).

3. The base and quantity you choose will be your subscription until you (or we) cancel your subscription. Bases available are: Primo Aran, Primo Fingering, Primo Sport, Primo Worsted, Bello, Bello Worsted, Single, Feet, Trusty and the BRAND NEW…. SNUG WORSTED and Plucky Cashmere! A quick run-down of yarn details can be found here.

4. The Classics color each month is a surprise colorway and is the same across all bases.

5. If you would like a subscription for more than one base, you will need to make an additional subscription. Plucky Classics is a great (and fun!) way to ensure you get a regular dose of Plucky yarn, especially if you find it difficult to make the updates (time zones, work schedules, etc.). Sign-up and yarn will magically appear in your mailbox every other month. Easy Peasy!

Plucky Classics!
