Coming Attractions Update – Part Two!

 

Wow – you guys really knocked our socks off with your love for our new colorways! Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts! These last few weeks we have put in more than a few long days to get that ready for you and we could not be happier with the overwhelming response! Who knew Aunt Bootsie was such a rock star?!

Ok, so…we know we said we were going to be dark until the 2nd, but, what if we had Just.One.More. ‘Last Call’ for the year? And so as to not leave anyone out, let’s bring the Lumberjack, Denim Bar and Long Johns sets to the party too, shall we?!

We invite you to join us on the blog Friday December 28th, starting at noon EST and going thru the weekend (while supplies last).

Please note that Sarah & Hayley will not be online again until the 2nd of January. Our IG TV will have a video about the new colors (named “Swatches! 12-21-18”) recorded and saved for your viewing pleasure and we hope you will help each other out with color, base and pattern questions!

Gratitude 

Gratitude

As I look back on the past year, there’s one emotion that stands out from all of the others, and that is “gratitude.”

At the top of my list of things I’m grateful for… well, it’s you. I am so grateful for the wonderful knitting community of which we are parts of a greater whole, for our shared passion for personal creativity, and also for the sheer joy of knitting that we experience together.  Words truly can’t adequately express my feelings of unending gratitude for the opportunity to serve you and to, hopefully, enhance your knitting, crocheting and crafting experience!

This is not to say that life is always easy, which we can attest to at Plucky. Life is filled with infinite ups and downs for all of us. As much as we strive to do our very best, we’ve made some mistakes along the way. It’s easy to be grateful for all of the obvious wonderful things in our lives. But, oh how difficult we find it to be grateful for challenges that come our way and the lasting lessons that aren’t quite as gentle as we wish they were. Nevertheless, we can find blessings in those tough situations that add wisdom to our lives and make us better going forward.

Thank you, dear friends, for sharing in our journey and being one of the biggest positives in my life. We have come together in unique and wonderful ways, we have inspired each other and in turn are inspired. Together we create lasting and loving expressions of our individual creativity and, with that, a special bond that I deeply value.

The Plucky Crew and I look forward to serving you in 2019!

With my heartfelt gratitude,

Sarah

 

 

Coming Attractions Update!

And now, let us present to you: Coming Attractions!

We’re peeling back the curtain a bit to reveal a different look that we are so pleased to present, and we just couldn’t wait any longer!  While you will always find tried and true Plucky semi-solids and tonal colorways, we’re taking our fun very seriously these days with some new and unique dyeing techniques.  Think smudgy variegated colors with a hint of speckle thrown in. We’re excited to present these new colorways as a sneak peek of what’s to come.  2019 is going to be full of new colorways, new bases, new places, new subscription offerings, and new pattern capsules. Who KNEW?! Oh, and speaking of new bases…

Introducing a new member to our family of bases at Plucky Knitter – SOLO DK!  Because we love Solo just as much as you do, we couldn’t help but think we needed to add another weight and thought DK would be the perfect addition! Just like its fingering weight sister, Solo DK is a 80/20 Merino/Silk blend. It also has a lovely twist making knit-purl textures, slipped-stitches and other simple textures truly sing.  And crocheters rejoice! Solo DK is also perfect for making all those beautifully textured treble stitches really 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 DK really comes alive after a good soak, it softens up beautifully while at the same time maintains its body. Solo DK is 115 grams and 275 yards, $28 per skein.

Here are some great pattern suggestions for Solo DK to inspire you:

• Carbeth Cardigan
• Plumpy
• Textured Shawl Recipe
• Syncopation Adoration Cowl
• A Twist To It

Knit Night!

 

We are excited to announce that we are starting a monthly Knit Night!

Pack up your Plucky yarn and join us for knitting, camaraderie, and a few limited shopping opportunities! The first Knit Night will be on January 14, 2019, from 5:30 PM – 8:00 PM

Also, please mark your calendars for future Knit Nights that will be held on the 2nd Monday of every month.

We can’t wait to see you!  ~ Plucky H2 117 S. Jefferson St. Hastings, MI 49058

Good Morning!

my Netflix binge this weekend 😉

Good morning!

Does anyone else feel like December (2018 for that matter!) has already gotten away from us?! Well, let me tell you this week is going to be one for the books! As you may have heard us mention a time or two already, 2019 is going to be full of new things, new places, new bases, new colorways, subscription offerings, and pattern capsules.

Therefore, in our continuing effort to be ready to put a fresh face on the new year we not only have a surprise update on Wednesday that will be giving you a glimpse into some 2019 offerings, we are also going to be closing out the 2018 gradient collections, the past Club (lumberjack, etc.) offerings and we will be rolling thru the bases in the Reserve! With that in mind, if you see something you love, don’t be shy, again, not all of these offerings will be back in 2019!

And please note there that if your reserve purchase is for a sweater quality and the skeins are not well matched, we will reach out prior to shipping (often even with photos!) to confirm if they will still work for your intended project.  Also, orders placed after 12:00 pm EST on Friday, December 21st, will not be shipping until we return to the barn on January 2nd.

Question: What bases might you like to see in reserve now?!?!?

Be back in a bit, I have some fun pictures to take and share with you guys!

Beau you look so great in stripes!

Winter Whites Update!

 

Winter Whites!

Fresh, white snow is nothing short of pure magic. The chill of winter is often associated with a stoic, rigid nature of being. However, once you step out and gaze at the horizon, you’ll be filled with awe at the enchanting whimsy that fills the air and the surrounding gorgeous white aesthetic.

So much inspiration can be derived from the magical icy scape and so with that in mind, we thought this Friday would be a great time to feature a collection of whites, neutrals and other winter inspired colorways! Please join us Friday, December 14th, starting at noon EST and then going thru the weekend, while supplies last for a celebration of all things Winter and White!

Long Johns, Henley, and Waffles Update!

Meet Long Johns, Henley, and Waffles!

We’ve turned another page on the calendar and the last one for 2018. Wow, how did that happen?! With the arrival of December comes a brand new 3-skein color kit.  Introducing, Long Johns! This set has us all swooning, plotting and planning at the barn. In addition to this fabulous 3-color option, we are thrilled to offer two brand new colors as single skeins to go with this show stopper, Henley and Waffles! Plus, Winter Halo will be making an appearance because it’s just so fabulous as an addition to this set.

 

Long Johns set:  A shaded silvery gray (think a cousin of Winter Halo), not too cool and not too warm, with speckles of charcoal, dark camel, red-orange and green plus a mid-toned shade of camel with coordinating speckles of charcoal, dark camel, red-orange and green all comes together with a lovely dark, yet bright poppy red.

___

Henley:  A burst of happiness!  This mid-toned bright orange-leaning red complements a variety of skin tones and looks fabulous with many other colorways.  Brighter with more of an orange undertone than Sockeye.  More red-leaning than Punchy or Campari.
___
Waffles:  Shades of golden caramel-y brown mingle with hints of mocha and dark walnut.  Darker and just slightly cooler than In a Jif, lighter and more golden than Smokey the Bear.

More surprises in Reserve!

Whew! It just never seems to slow down this time of year at the Plucky barn!

It’s been a whirlwind lately with pulling mystery kits for you plus the past few weeks the Plucky Crew and I have been busy cleaning the attic to prepare for new arrivals in 2019. Boy, did we find some treasures, and that means we’ve gathered up even more surprises for you!

Between now and the end of the year, we will be putting dyed and ready-to-ship yarn on various bases with different colorways in Reserve. And, how’s this for a throwback?!  We will also be posting items to our Etsy shop!  It’s an opportunity for you to get creative (which you’re soooo good at!) with the colors and bases offered. After all, sometimes you don’t know what you want or are wishing for till you see it, and this limited edition offering has lots of delightful surprises in store for you!

So, please check out Reserve and have fun making your selections. We think it’s the perfect time of year for quick knits for you and your loved ones.

And…please stay tuned for 2019, when we will get back to offering you our luxury yarn through our regular update format!

Warmest wishes,
Sarah
