So many x’s & o’s,

Hello, Phoebe!

 

Hello Phoebe!!

Please join us in welcoming the latest addition to the family of Plucky bases…introducing, Phoebe!! Why do we love Phoebe? How much time do you have?! Named after one of the precious new Plucky pups, Phoebe couldn’t be a better match. Just like its namesake, Phoebe is incredibly soft with loads of personality. Don’t blame us if all you want to do is snuggle up and pet it!

 

 

 

With its unique twist (we’re talking just the slightest crimp here, think Groovy Baby’s little sister), Phoebe can be worked on a wide range of needles to achieve a family of different fabrics, all soft with drape, but with a fabulous range in fluidity. Comprised of 100% Cashmere (230 yards/60g skein, fingering weight), you’ll positively luxuriate in the buttery softness as you knit with Phoebe.

Halo Worsted & Friends!

Halo Worsted.
Three new colorways.
Cambridge(s), Snug Bulky & Nifty on sale.

That is some pretty kicky news right there and we happen to think that this is an outstanding way (and just what the Dr. ordered) to celebrate the fact that we are over half-way through February!

You’ve told us how much you love Halo Worsted, and we absolutely concur! If there’s a project you’ve been swooning over that demands some Halo Worsted, now’s the time to scoop it up!

Now, about those new colorways… Spice Girls, Deja Blue and Classic Vinyl – these are just a few of the brand-new colors we will be releasing at Stitches West next week!  We decided it was simply a must to release these a little early because they are just too good

on Halo Worsted (and others too, of course!) to keep them under wraps until then.

 

 

Bases Offered:

  • Cambridge DISCONTINUED & Sale Priced at $16
  • Cambridge 2.0  DISCONTINUED & Sale Priced at $16
  • Feet
  • Halo Worsted

Plucky Essentials…NOW OPEN!

 

Plucky Essentials…NOW OPEN!

Plucky 24/7?!? We are over the moon (thrilled I tell you, THRILLED) to offer you the opportunity to get Plucky day or night…all time zones rejoice!  Plucky Essentials is a palette of colors and bases that will always be available in the Reserve Shop for those times when inspiration strikes but your stash just won’t do.  With a mix of neutrals and colors that pop, there’s a little something for everyone!

9 colors. 5 bases. Stash enhancement made easy! 

 

Bases Offered:

  • Primo Fingering
  • Primo Sport
  • Sweater Aran
  • Trusty
  • Trusty Fingering

Helpful Information:

  • Plucky Essentials will be available in the Plucky Reserve shop.  Your order will ship according to Reserve guidelines, within 4 business days.
  • The Essentials base and color list will rotate seasonally/occasionally, you know, when the mood strikes to change the color mix up a bit!

Introducing…SOLO!!

Solo!

It’s finally time to let you in on this little Solo secret, and we couldn’t be happier to shout it from the rooftops!  If you adored Single, the wait is over. This is for you!  And for the Traveler lovers among us, this is right up your alley as well!

With the fiber content of the old Plucky Single (80.20 merino silk) and the twist of Plucky Traveler, and 475 yards per skein (WOW!), Solo has something for everyone!

 

With its lovely tight twist, Solo is up to the task of making textures stand out.  Knit-purl combinations, slipped stitches and other simple textures take center stage in this base.  And for the crocheters among us, Solo is phenomenal for making all those treble stitches pop.  The merino content keeps it sturdy and long lasting, while the silk provides a soft hand, an elegant sheen and the perfect amount of drape.  Solo really comes alive after a good soak, it softens up beautifully while at the same time maintains its body.  We’ve selected a list of colors that we think positively shine on Solo, including two brand new colorways.  Meet Baby Love and Metro!!

 

Baby Love:  Cool and vibrant.  Light in tone, while at the same time lively and vivid.  More saturated than Holland Mint, lighter/brighter than Petal Pusher.

 

 

Metro:  Cool, steely, sage-leaning blue/gray. Lighter and much more blue/gray leaning than Table Setting and Banquette.  Cooler, less brown leaning than Sage Advice.

Sky’s The Limit MKAL!

 

Sky’s the Limit!

The sky is the limit when it comes to options for knitting this biased rectangular wrap! This stylish, cozy (and oh so wearble) piece can be knit with one color, multi-color, or mixed bases. The choice is all yours!

Hayley and I have both cast-on this brand-new pattern, and we’d sure love to have you join us in a Mystery KAL as we work on this beauty to wear at Stitches West!

Did we mention that this Mystery KAL is like none other? There is one, and only one clue so everyone is free to work at their own pace. How fun is that?! So, whether you choose to stash dive, or let us put a Mystery Kit together for you (in Reserve now!), we hope you will join us and cast-on and join the fun!

Collaboration Yarn Kits

We adore working with other designers and count it such a privilege to do so!  In conjunction with the release of a few of our latest collaborations, we are delighted to announce a brand-new program for pre-ordering yarn to knit these lovely patterns!

 

In the sneak peek of Joji Locatelli and Veera Valimaki’s latest volume of Interpretations #5, you will spot a brand new custom colorway created especially for this brilliant collection!  Pewter is a neutral with the volume turned up just a tad, staying soft enough in hue to let the stitches and cables shine.  With lovely shades of light to mid gray, and the perfect amount of delicate blue speckles, it’s a gray and blue lovers dream!

We are pleased to offer pre-orders of Pewter on Bello Worsted for a limited time. These pre-orders will ship the week of February 26th, just in time to cast on as the pattern is released!

By Hand Serial’s latest Lookbook, #5 features a stunning visual tour of our own great state of Michigan!  We were not only thrilled, but also incredibly honored to be included with the talented group of makers featured in this issue.  We are pleased to offer pre-orders for Oredock and Leland Bluestone for a limited time!
Oredock  By Jill Zielinski
This shawl’s bold graphics are reminiscent of the architectural lines of the Upper Peninsula’s Oredock, an engineering marvel build more than a century ago on the shore of Lake Superior. It’s the perfect project to experiment with mixing different Plucky colors and bases!

LeLand Bluestone  By Andrea Hungerford
This is the perfect top for those days when it’s not cold enough to pull out the heavy sweaters yet, but there’s a chill in the air and it feels good to pull on something soft and warm. The double-stranded yarn makes this piece incredibly soft, and gives it a beautiful drape.
