Mannequin Monday – Lake Effect

 

Hey, hey, hey! It’s Mannequin Monday!

And today’s pick is….

Lake Effect!! Designed by Amy Miller and oh so prefect for spring!

Springtime is the perfect time to add just a dash of feminine to any look you want. It’s just a little bit “girly” and a little “lacy”… but not too much. The Lake Effect cardigan pairs with anything and everything. Worked seamlessly from the bottom up in your favorite Plucky fingering weight, this is the lace sweater of our dreams!

It’s A Duck! Part 2

 

If it knits like a worsted….

We all know the adage if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck…well then, it must be a duck!  Back in March we made the change from Primo and Bello Worsted to DK. Which now brings me to, PRIMO ARAN! You can probably guess where I’m going with this one! Primo Aran is now to be known as Primo WORSTED! To put it simply, we are renaming Primo Aran to more accurately reflect its weight, rest assured nothing else has changed.  Primo Worsted is still the same base you know and love!!

 

To mark the occasion, we are pleased to offer Primo Worsted 10% OFF across all colorways offered!  Let’s keep this worsted theme going and offer a whole slew of the Plucky worsted weights (and their friends), shall we?! We are also pleased to offer Snug on sale at $22 per skein as well as Bulky at $17 per skein. It’s still a bit chilly in some places and it’s never (ever!) too early to think ahead to fall and winter knitting!

Martin
Filament
Weathervane

Sky’s The Limit

Plucky Pop-Up Tickets

You’re Invited to a Plucky Pop-Up!!

Once again, Plucky is expanding! While we’ll still be doing all the ‘heavy-lifting’ at the Plucky Barn, we decided it was high-time we added additional space. Something ‘pretty’ and, (cough, cough), presentable. A place for Hayley and I to have our offices, host meetings, conduct photoshoots (this is where we shot Plucky Capsule No. 1), and throw special events!

Below is a schedule of events that will be taking place. Please note that some of these are ticketed events and those tickets will be sold prior to the Pop-Up weekend.

 

Order Your Plucky Pop-Up Tickets Here

Friday Evening Sit & Knit Tickets Have Sold Out

But, we are taking names for a waiting list, so please contact Customer Service to get on the list!

 

Use this button for Saturday Plucky Classics Double Feature Tickets!

 

 


 

We are SO excited for this and really hope you can come visit. If you plan to attend, please RSVP at THIS LINK. It will be so helpful to know how may be attending!

Plucky Pop-Up!

You’re Invited to a Plucky Pop-Up!!

Once again, Plucky is expanding! While we’ll still be doing all the ‘heavy-lifting’ at the Plucky Barn, we decided it was high-time we added additional space. Something ‘pretty’ and, (cough, cough), presentable. A place for Hayley and I to have our offices, host meetings, conduct photoshoots (this is where we shot Plucky Capsule No. 1), and throw special events!

We are endearingly calling our new space, Plucky H2 (“2nd Headquarters”). Plucky H2 is a two-story, brownstone located in the heart of our small town in Hastings, MI. It’s a classic building with so many charming qualities like exposed brick and tall windows. But of course, once we moved in, we Pluck’d it up!

 

Plucky H2 is not a traditional storefront or something that will have regular business hours and be open to the public. However, it will be a unique space to nurture our creativity and host special events. And to celebrate the grand opening of Plucky H2, along with our 11th Anniversary, we are hosting a Plucky Pop-Up!

The Plucky Crew, Hayley and I would love to welcome you to our small town! Please join us Friday and Saturday, June 1-2, 2018 in Hastings, Michigan for our first ever Plucky Pop-Up at our new creative space, Plucky H2.

 

 

What can you expect from the weekend (and Hastings!) you might ask? Well, for starters, Hastings is a quintessential small town for sure. It does not have all the conveniences of a big city and Plucky H2 isn’t at all like an Amway Grand (the large and ever so lovely hotel where we host the Shindig) but we do have many special things planned for you. And so does Hastings!

Expect new colors, new bases, new patterns, pop-up demonstrations from the Plucky Crew, Plucky-themed cocktails (even a special craft beer!), wine tastings, great food, lots of laughs, camaraderie, and of course PUPPIES! And did someone say KAL?!

 

 

As a bonus, Plucky H2 has a variety of delightful stores and restaurants as our neighbors. During the Pop-Up weekend some of them will be hosting special events and store specials just for your arrival. It seems everyone in town knows that our Plucky pals are coming, and they can’t wait to meet you!

Below is a schedule of events that will be taking place. Please note that some of these are ticketed events and those tickets will be sold prior to the Pop-Up weekend.

 

*Tickets for the Cocktail Event and Plucky Classics Double Feature
will go on sale, Friday, April 20th at Noon EDT on the Plucky Blog.

Mannequin Monday – Persephone

 

Hey, hey, hey! It’s Mannequin Monday!

And today’s pick is….

Persephone by Plucky Knitter. This quietly elegant triangular shawl pairs a richly textured body with a lovely lace border. Adding fringe at the end is the icing on the cake!

It’s a Scummy/Pretty in Pink Party!!

 

We have chosen a couple of fan favorites this time…the Scums and the Pinks!!  We love offering these two color families together because in our book, pinks + scums are a fabulous thing!!  In addition to the two brand-new mystery options, we are pleased to offer a smashing list of existing colorways, including past mystery offerings.  So, if there’s something you missed out on that has become a must-have, now’s the time to scoop it up!  Oh, and how could we forget?!  There’s a few gradients in the mix, too!!

And who doesn’t love a little pattern inspiration?  Our friend, Joji, has recently released a fabulous new pattern Fading Point that would be ever so lovely in one of these gradients!
