It’s finally here – salad season is upon us! I can’t wait to make the first batch of Morzo Orzo for the year! Do you have a favorite salad recipe for this time of the year?

 



 

Hayley and I are about to hit the road again, this time we’re headed to NYC for a trunk show at Annie’s! We would be delighted to meet any and all that can make it out to see us! We have started the slow pack, and we’re bringing along some fabulous new colorways (Empire, High Line, Succulent, Endless Summer, Bingo, Bada Bing to name a few), plus, some old favorites. Now, the eternal question – what knitting and shoes to bring?


 

Black River Blanket Shawl. This is my kind of knit! Miles and miles of stockinette because sometimes you just want to cast-on and go! It’s all I can do to stop myself from binge knitting another… gray perhaps?

Mix n’ Match!

 

Mix n’ Match!

I LOVE to mix and match!  Dishes, glassware, linens, throw pillows, texture, and pattern. I could go on.  And on.  But, when it comes to mixing and matching yarn, well that’s when it gets especially fun!  I never cease to be entertained by the endless combinations of mixing both colors and bases.  There has been some wonderful pattern inspiration popping up on Ravelry this week that you may be eyeing, we sure are!  So, we thought it would be a splendid idea to have an update where you get to have all the fun, and mix and match ‘til your heart’s content!

 

 

Here are just a few of the patterns that have caught our eye this week as well as a few of the Mix N’ Match combos we love!

Fellas and Friends!

The boys are back in town!

Whether it’s for us gals who can’t get enough of all the neutral/Tomboy inspired colors, or if you are looking for the perfect color to knit for your Fella, or if you’re a Fella who knits….these colors are for you!  We love the tonal semi-solids on their own, but we adore how they play so nicely with the broodier Small Batch colors (Stuart, Frasier and Hamish…I’m looking at you!).  We’ve brought out some of the oldie but goodie Fellas, as well as a few light/bright colorways that accent the Fellas beautifully and, don’t forget that there will be the brand new Mystery guy included as well!


 

In other VERY exciting news, with this update we saying hello to a brand spanking new (somewhat limited edition at this time) base…introducing, Plucky Halo! Buttery soft with the most luscious halo you ever did see, its 215 yards of fingering (leaning toward the heavy fingering weight spectrum) weight 100% Cashmere per 60 gram skein. For all the lovers of old school Plucky 2 ply lace and 4 ply fingering Cashmeres…. it’s similar, but oh so much better!!

Save the Date!

I can hardly believe it’s true. It’s almost here… Plucky’s 10th Anniversary!!

It turns out time actually does fly by when you’re having the time of your life. I could bore you to tears with story after story of all that has transpired since this all started 10 years ago. There are so many memories whirling around in my head (not to mention the entire Plucky Crew’s laundry list!), but, for now, I’ll spare you the details because this message is about what makes Plucky what it is…and that’s YOU!

So, please, let me just say…thank YOU!!! Thank you for all, and I mean ALL that you, our dear customers and friends, have done to bring us this far. Never could I have imagined when I started dyeing yarn in my tiny kitchen ten years ago, that Plucky would grow to what it has become today. It truly has been an amazing decade, and my gratitude simply cannot be captured in mere words. I am beyond grateful to you, and the incomparable Plucky Crew, for joining me on this incredible adventure!

To show our appreciate and to celebrate, we have loads of fun stuffed up our sleeves! For starters, you are cordially invited to come and celebrate with us at the Plucky 10th Anniversary Party, October 27-29, at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Please save the date because this party is for you, and what a party it will be!! This celebration will have some elements from past Plucky events that we’ve all come to know and love, including, of course, collaborating with our friend Lorilee, as well as some new surprises we think you’ll really enjoy.

I hope that as many as possible will be able to join us for a weekend full of fun, memories (and making new ones!) and of course, knitting! We’ll be sharing more details in the weeks ahead, so stay tuned!

Please allow me to say, one more time, thank you! If the past 10 years are any indication, I can’t wait to see what the next 10 years of our adventures together will be!
