Did you experience some wacky weather last week? Or maybe you totally dodged the weather bullet? Regardless, we hope you were able to find some relaxing time to think, plot and plan for some deep winter knitting (or to dream about spring projects!). Maybe you’ve been searching for patterns and scrolling through the Plucky app, looking for just the right combination of texture and colors. Did your favorites list and your queue grow more than just a little bit? Speaking of favorites, thank you so much for your thread in the Ravelry group noting your top Plucky favorites! We’ve loved reading what old and new colorways comprise your Top 10. So much so, that this update is for you and promises to include some old and new favorite Plucky colorways of all time
In case you haven’t quite decided what to cast on next, may we offer some of our latest favorites as possibilities for your consideration?
First up, Buccaneer. This one has quickly jumped to the top of my favorites – to knit and to wear! There are so many color combinations to be had here…And, if you haven’t considered it yet, Hayley says The Knitter’s Dude “is the most fantastic pattern!” You can check hers out in the Plucky App as an Ox Mystery Match. It’s simply beautiful and Scholar works SO well for this design. Trelly Hernandez released A Plucky Penny hat this week that would be so fun to #mixthosebases for an accessory big on color and texture!
A few other favorites I don’t want you to miss: Nordic Wind (I think I need one in Snug Worsted now, too! Or maybe a mix of bases…hmm), Warm Sheep (mine is so cozy and warm), andThaliah (a perfectly relaxing yet engaging knit).
Here’s the list of bases you can expect to see so far!:
This Update will be split into two parts. Please join us on Sunday, January 31st at 8:00 PM EST and again on Monday, February 1st at 9:00 AM EST. We have a great list of bases and I am very happy to report that Bello and Single are back! They will all be available, as well our brand new base, Lodge, in both fingering and worsted weight. Lodge joins Crew as a perfect year round, all seasons blend!
Keep an eye on the Update chatter thread as Hayley and I put together color combos for Buccaneer and do our best to help you find the perfect color selection for you from this update. And, as we always do, we will be watching the Wishlist thread to help us round out the final colorways to be offered. The final list of colorways and bases will be posted in the locked Update News and Announcement thread.
