Another Plucky Surprise!!!

 

THANK YOU!!!

First of all, thank you guys SO much for joining us this past Friday!  Was that fun, or what?!  In fact, it was so fun, we think the weekend festivities need to continue on through Monday to ease us right on into the week after a long holiday weekend!

What can you expect to see?  Here’s just a few things we have up our sleeves and who knows what else:

FREE SHIPPING on all DOMESTIC orders
and FREE SHIPPING on orders of
$75 or more INTERNATIONALLY!!!

_______

 

 

  • Winter QPP!  With winter right around the corner, it’s that time, again.  Time to pre-order your favorites from this palette!  How fun will these colors be on some of the new bases?!  Hibernation and Parka…I’m looking at you!
_______

  • Luxe Club sign-ups!  Yep, that’s right!  Friday was Classics and now it’s Luxe’s turn!  If seeing the last few installments of this Club has given you a case of the “I really gotta have that”, now’s your chance!  Remember, the Luxe Club lets you have a little bit of luxury delivered to your door every 2 months, with the payments broken up affordably into 2 payments.
_______
  • One hit wonders!  Yes, there will be one hits across the bases from fingering weight on up!  Plus, Bungalow One Hits!
Just like this past Friday, please keep your eyes peeled to Instagram, Ravelry (Locked Announcement thread, the fast moving Update thread and Wishlist thread – Hayley, Seth and I will be chit chatting away and helping and granting as many wishes as we possibly can, in real time!) beginning Monday, November 27th 9:00 a.m. EST, going throughout the day.

An important note: Since all of the yarn available in Monday’s update (and all other subsequent Ready To Ship or Instant Gratification updates) has been carefully inventoried, dyed, and is ready to be shipped, we will no longer be able to accommodate requests for cancellations or changes of orders.  Please be absolutely certain that you fully intend to purchase and receive any yarn you check-out with from the update.  It is administratively very difficult and impedes shipping times to allow for these changes. Thank you for your understanding!

If there is something else you’d love to see in this update? Please hop on over to the Wishlist Thread on Ravelry!  We’re happy to grant as many wishes as we possibly can!

Warmly and with our sincere thanks,
pluckysignature-sarah-smaller

Plucky’s Instant Gratification!

 

Exciting Times!!!

It seems every year, right about this time, all of us catch the “Gotta Have & MUST Knit It Now” fever. You know, quick knits for ourselves and for the special people in our lives. After all, we cannot have our nearest and dearest walking around with cold noggins, necks and hands can we?! Good news, we are ready to help!

Please join us on Friday, November 24th beginning at 9:00 a.m. Eastern and going throughout the day, on the Plucky BLOG and in the Plucky RESERVE for an update to beat all updates! A ready-to-ship update that includes three brand new colorways (see below), mysteries, one hit wonders, pre-orders, swag, kits and who knows what else!??!? And, because we want to thank you for being so wonderful, we are offering FREE SHIPPING on everything $50 or more domestically and $75 or more for our international friends! You guys deserve it! So, whether you are planning on a single color project, craving a mystery or are getting ready to cast on all the hats, I hope you’ll find something in this update that will keep you snug and cozy (see what I did there? Ha!) through the end of the year and beyond!

 

 

Now, about those new colorways!

 


 

At Last:  At last, indeed!  The Twill of pinks, it goes with almost everything!  Yes, that’s right – pink as a neutral!  Not too warm (but warm), not too cool (not really cool, but looks amazing with all the cool toned colors).  Rose gold lovers amongst us?  We think this fits the bill quite nicely!  Warmer and much darker than Dreamy.  Plie’ and Pink-a-Boo are much cooler and rosy toned.  Melba and Bellini are much warmer and coral/orange leaning.  Warmer than Pink Pony.

______

 


 

Torch Song: Our unrequited love runs deep for this one!  Deep, broody shades of burgundy, chocolate, charcoal and black.  Not as purple leaning as Bada Bing, more burgundy, less red leaning than Starlet. More variegated than Cabaret.

______


Sticker Book: This one comes with a dose of nostalgia, and takes us right back to the 80’s and our Lisa Frank loving days!  Shades of teal and turquoise highlighted with even brighter bits of teal.  More turquoise, slightly darker and more variegated than Technicolor Teal.

_____

 

 

Hayley and I have picked a selection of our favorite SB colors from this past year, plus a few of yours.  Surprise…the Scotland colors were the big favorites!  Eton Mess, Tartan, Hamish, Highlander, Stuart, and Nessie! There will be a button on the Plucky blog to pre-order on the following bases: Primo Fingering, Bello Worsted, Groovy, Groovy, Baby, Sophisticate, Trusty and Trusty Fingering!

Pretty In Pink! New Club!

 

Pretty in Pink…a yarn club!
Pink.  Hot pink, neon pink, soft baby pink, coral pink, purple-y pink.  I love them all!  While it’s true that it’s not necessarily my go to for an entire garment, I find that pink is the perfect thing to make color work pop.  It’s just so good with a wide range of other colors…warm and cool neutrals, scummy colors, blues, greens, aquas…and the list goes on!  Pink. It can be a neutral in my world!

With this very first installment of the Plucky Pretty In Pink club, we are pleased to offer a selection of some of our favorite pinks, along with some colors that we think are fantastic paired with pink!  And, of course, a brand new mystery pink!!

November Colors of the Month!

 

November Colors of the Month!

For November’s first Color of the Month offering, we decided to go with something old, something new, and something sentimental.  The official Color of the Month for November is, of course, Skies of November…an oldie, but oh, such a goodie!  For purely sentimental reasons, and because it’s fantastic paired with Skies, we had to offer Sammy Sammerson.  A tribute my dear old pal, Sam, who left us last week after almost 14 wonderful years of being constantly by my side.
