Quick Knits + A New Pattern!

It’s here!  You know, that time of year when you can’t get projects off the needles fast enough.  Whether it’s a hat in a day or a fabulously chunky wrap that practically knits itself (for you, or those special knit-worthy loved ones in your life), we are all about instant gratification.  Speaking of quick knits, we’re delighted to present the Fruit Stripe Hat!!

Fruit Stripe Hat: Sometimes there’s just nothing better than a quick knit and this quick knit combines some of our favorite things!  Marling, stripes and ribbing?  Yes, please!  It’s the perfect opportunity to showcase some of your favorite Plucky bases, too.  So, get creative with the marls and those eye-catching contrast stripes!

 

Need some pattern inspiration?  Here are some of our favorites:

Mannequin Monday – Druthers

 

Hey, hey, hey! It’s Mannequin Monday!

And today’s pick is…Druthers!

 

There is something extra special about today’s Mannequin Monday… Druthers was originally released in 2017 as a exclusive Plucky Kit, and today the pattern is now available for download!!

 

Peanut butter and jelly. Tom and Jerry. Bread and butter. Lucy and Ethel. All classic pairings! But, if we had our druthers, there’s a pairing that begs to be added to that list…texture and stripes! Introducing, Druthers! We are completely smitten with this little beauty and what’s not to love?! This one checks all of the boxes for us…fabulous texture sections, super fun blocks of stripes, and endless possibilities for 3 color pairings! Add to all of this your favorite fingering base, and, well…you do the math!

 

Awe! Look at baby Phoebe!!

Sample show in knit in colors Peninsula, Happy Glamper and Bespoke. Sample at top of post is in colors Morticia, Grimace, and Sketch.

The Cormo Update!

 

Plucky Cormo

The beauty of Fall is upon us along with its distinct temperament. What a great contrast it seems to be — the unwelcoming, cold air outside with the indoor coziness that beckons us to our favorite comfy chair and the warmth of a crackling fireplace.

This time of year is the perfect time to knit, and lately I find myself becoming reacquainted (and highly entertained!) with cables. All that glorious texture!

 

Quadri Hat, shown in Plucky Cormo in color Like, Toad-ally.

___

Crosstown Hat, shown in Plucky Cormo in color Twill.

___

What better time than now to offer our new Cormo base in the following six colors that stand on their own or work together beautifully as a color palette:

Twill - Primo Sport

Twill. If ever there was a neutral to hover the line between warm and cool, it’s Twill. The perfect neutral to show off all the intricate cables. Twill, always and forever.

___

Starlet - Cachet

Starlet. Just the right amount drama (and just how I like my drama) in this gorgeously broody red.

___

In A Jif. The quintessential camel – but nothing flat at all about this color. Nuanced neutral at its best.

___

Like, Toad-ally. Toad is totally the perfect dark and broody green. It, too,  hovers that line of warm and cool and flatters so many skin tones. Toad, how I love thee.

___

Dive Bar - Cashmere

Dive Bar. A bright and deep navy blue.

___

 

Sticky Toffee. As delicious to knit with as the dessert namesake is to eat!

___

In addition to our new Cormo, we offering a selection of bases that really bring out the very best in each of the colorways offered. 

Bases Available:

  • Beauregard
  • Cambridge 1.0
  • Cachet
  • Cormo

Coziness

 

November has a character all its own. The leaves falling at a rapid clip and the unmistakably earthy scent that is late autumn. The nostalgia that it brings, I can’t quite put into words. It’s easy to enjoy the smell of a burning fire and watching children (or those child at heart) rake up a pile of leaves shortly before cheerfully jumping in, with pups, of course. We revel in the chill of the air and broody skies until we are enticed by the warm comforts that await us indoors.

Lately (honestly, always this time of year) I find myself wrapped up in one (or several) of my handknits as I curl up on the sofa, pups at my side, a warm drink and, of course, knitting in hand. Not much can compare to the feeling – it inspires within me the desire to knit and create something of comfort, coziness and beauty that aspires to capture those special characteristics of everything Fall.

 

Sweater pattern, Watson Corners. Knit in Oxford & Cashmere (held together) both in colors Wintry Mix.

Hat pattern, Quadri. Knit with Cormo in color Like, Toad-ally.

 

 

 

We have a special update for you coming soon….

 

Warmest Regards,
