Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

It barely seems possible that we find ourselves quickly nearing the end of 2016, and oh what a year it has been!  “Thank you” feels insufficient in expressing what you all mean to us, because we absolutely could not do what we do without you!  We never take for granted that you have choices when it comes to purchasing yarn, and we are truly thankful to all of you for choosing Plucky and loyally supporting our small family business.  Without fail, you are there for us, whether it be through your friendship and camaraderie in our Ravelry group, shopping updates, knitting along with us, coming out to see us at trunk shows, or traveling far and wide to Shindig and Glamp!  Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to you, our dear customers and friends, as we look back at our adventures in 2016 and look ahead to 2017.

So many x’s and o’s from all of us, to all of you and, again, thank you all so very, very much!

P.S. We are excited to announce our first event of 2017! Hayley and I will be joining Meg and her team at Haus of Yarn for a Plucky Knitter trunk show in Nashville, TN on Saturday, January 14, 2017. We fell in love with the Music City in 2015 and we can’t wait to get back! We hope you’ll stop by to say “Hello!”, check out our newest colorways, knit a little, and chat a bit with us on Saturday, January 14, 2017 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm CT.

Flash Sale!

flashsalegraphic-promo-1-3

 

It’s our last sale of the year, and we are going out with a bang!  For this sale, we will be filling the shelves in Reserve to the brim with some especially nifty options, just for you!

So, without further ado, here’s all you need to know! 

As a thank you to all of you, this flash sale will feature FREE SHIPPING on everything.  What does everything include?!  Well for starters, we are positively giddy to offer Cachet, (our Aran weight 100% Cashmere; and just between us, it makes the most velvety soft fabric we’ve everfelt!) at the very special price of $54 per skein.  If your knitting plans have you in need of a workhorse yarn, we have that too!  Rustic will be available for $13 per skein.  This will be your last chance at Rustic, as it is to be discontinued.  We are also happy to offer a smattering of Sweater and Cozy! Imagine our delight when we organized the barn and found a box of Sweater!  Sweater and Cozy will be offered at their regular price of $25 per skein. We have selected a cohesive color palette for all of the bases, perfect for all of your colorwork plans. So mix and match with abandon!

Cozy and Cachet will be available in the following colorways:

Rustic and Sweater will be available in the following colorways:

Keep and eye on Ox and his mystery matches in the Plucky App! He’s got some great ideas for knitting up your Rustic, Cachet, Sweater and Cozy!

And…because we just can’t help ourselves, we’ll have more One Hit Wonders!  All fingering, sport, DK, Worsted and Aran (across all Plucky bases, except Cashmere and Cachet) will be $15/skeinCashmere and Cachet OHW’s will be $40/skein.

Please note:  For this offering of one hit wonders, we will not be able to take requests and you may receive any of the Plucky bases. But, we guarantee they will be fun and help expand your base and color repertoire!

Thank you so very much for, well, everything. It is our sincere pleasure to serve you. We look forward to having you join us beginning Thursday, December 15th through the weekend, while supplies last in the Reserve for our last sale of 2016!

xo,

Sarah

Snug as a Bug Club!

snugasabug-logo-updatedcolors

 

Snug.  Whether it’s fingering, worsted or bulky, when we need to up our comfy, cozy knitting game, it’s the first thing to hit the needles!  There’s something truly exceptional about all of the Snug bases, from the plump sproingy twist to the way it takes the color, we’ve been in deep smit since the first time we felt it.  We are delighted to offer the latest installment of the Snug as a Bug Club!  Just like our first offering of this club, this quick ship pre-order update will feature two brand new mystery colors that are guaranteed to coordinate beautifully together, along with a full list of other colorways that Hayley and I adore on Snug. If you choose one skein, you will receive one of the two mystery colors; with two skeins of the mystery option, you will receive both colors.

Winter has finally decided it’s ready to come to town, and what an entrance it’s making!! Here’s hoping your weekend plans include a healthy dose of knitting and watching the snow fly!

It’s happened to all of us…our favorite pair of jeans are broken in perfectly, and then it happens. You know, when a very well meaning member of the family beats you to the washer and puts them in the dryer…nooooo!! This article is a lifesaver!

It’s no secret that I’ve professed my love and adoration for these muffins. They.are.so.good. That is of course, if by good you mean pretty much amazing. We thought it would be fun to put a seasonal twist on them and Cranberry Clementine Muffins were born.

It’s here…that time of year when it’s you vs. the elements. Sometimes a big clunky boot is just a bit too much. These boots are an all around great everyday boot! I love that they have a somewhat hidden side zipper for easy on/off. No muss to fuss with the laces. Plus, they keep your feet nice and dry and are super cute with hand knit socks, too!

 

We are so excited about the two latest Plucky Knitter designs. They are fun, easy to knit and oh so fetching! Bunny Hill (a club exclusive!) and Season Pass are our gift to you with the purchase of a seven skein kit at the Snug As A Bug update, coming this Sunday!

Hello, sweets! We’ve found ourselves at the end of another week with an entire weekend ahead of us. So, let’s get started, shall we?

Whether I’m in need of entertainment, inspiration (knitting, cooking, baking and otherwise), distraction or a daily dose of cuteness, these IG feeds never disappoint!

Are Hayley and I the only ones whose lips never stop peeling, cracking or splitting starting now thru oh, about April?  We’ve decided to conduct a test. Which one will FINALLY make it stop?! Do you guys have a favorite for this time of year?

It’s December, and that means it’s almost time for new calendars! I know, I know; these days most people keep track of their schedules on their phones, computers or tablets. I can’t help it. I just love the real deal! Rifle Paper Co. is always a favorite and Snow & Graham has some super cute options, too! And this one from School House Electric is going to hang right over my desk in 2017.

Same story, different day. I want to cast on all.of.the.things! I’m especially all about the instant gratification of Aran and Bulky weight knits this time of year. A hat in a day or a shawl in a weekend? Yes, please!  Decemberist and I have a date this weekend! Groovy and Spiffy held double in Fuzzy Slippers.

It’s Groovy being Cozy!

itsgroovybeingcozy-promo-1-1

We’ve fallen head over heals for Groovy, you too?  Well, guess what?!  It’s back in the house, and we couldn’t be more elated!  What makes Groovy so exquisite, you ask?  With its light and lofty hand, this 100% Aran weight cashmere makes some of the most luxurious fabric you can imagine.  Perfect for warding off those falling temperatures!

And then, there’s Cozy.  It’s a long time favorite, with a very loyal following and with good reason!  This velvety soft, DK weight Merino/Camel blend is perfect for both accessories and sweaters.  Hayley and I have selected a palette of colors that sing on both of these bases, including two new colorways.  We are pleased to introduce Winter Wonderland and Stone Cold!
