Mannequin Monday – Silver Spoons

 

Hey, hey, hey! It’s Mannequin Monday!

And today’s pick is…

Silver Spoons!

This triangular shawl uses texture to tell the classic and timeless story of Silver Spoons. You might choose the elegant and understated look of antique silver spoons, using a single color on a decadent yarn. But, if you like your spoons a bit more shabby chic, with a side order of funky fun, go for a pair of colors. Be brave and pick something surprising for the border! Life is always better when you have a Silver Spoon!

One-color version shown is color Kindred Spirits on Cachet. The two-color version is color Barkcloth (MC) and Fiona (CC) on Cachet.

Spotlight on PINKS & ORANGES!

We’re Turning on the Spotlight!

It’s time for our next Spotlight Update!  For this one we’re putting the spotlight on Pinks and Oranges!  It’s true I tend to gravitate towards all the grays with a healthy dose of green and blue thrown in for good measure, but, a good pink is really hard to beat and boy, do we have a plethora of them to choose from in Plucky-land!  We’ve paired the pinks with a fantastic selection of oranges…how much more Summery and juicy can you get?!  And, of course, there’s a handful of neutrals to round out the palette.  In addition to all of this excitement, we’re pleased to present three brand new colorways…POG, Clementine, and Blackboard (speaking of a new neutral)!
