It’s Tweed Time!

Plucky Knitter, Tweed (44% wool, 44% superwash wool, 12% viscose) 225 yds / 205 m — $25 a skein

It’s Tweed Time!

We are thrilled to finally be releasing pre-orders of Plucky Tweed!!  This outstanding base has equal amounts wool and superwash wool. This balance allows the yarn to take on the best characteristics of both. It dyes up beautifully, evenly, and has lovely body. And we’ve carefully curated the tweedy bits so that they wouldn’t overpower our beautiful colors.

It’s always exciting when something TRULY new comes along.  Plucky Tweed is just what I had been waiting for.  It creates fabric that is breathable, a little bit rustic (in the best way!), and with a touch of texture.  When I first met Tweed, it instantly spoke to me as the perfect choice for a new technique that I wanted to try.  And, that’s how the PB&J hat was a born!  One-round totally jogless stripes are demystified in the PB&J pattern.  So, let’s go make a sandwich!

Thank You, VK LIVE NYC!!

We are neck deep in the Vogue Knitting Live (NYC!!!) fog, but what a fantastic fog to be in!

It’s been six years since our last (& only other Vogue). The energy was everything we remember and so much more! It was such a pleasure and absolute privilege meeting and seeing knitting friends both old and new! You have inspired us and warmed our hearts and for that (and much more) we thank you! THANK YOU so very much for an unforgettable weekend!!!

 





VK Live Online Party!

Beep beep! It’s never a dull moment at VK Live in NYC! We’re here in the middle of Times Square and you can feel the energy in the air! We’re having so much fun seeing familiar faces and making new friends and wish each and every one of you could be here with us. The next best thing?! Sharing the love of this fun and festive weekend with you online with a Plucky Blog Update!

Meet TWEED:  Our new Tweed yarn has equal amounts wool and super wash wool. This balance allows the yarn to take on the best characteristics of both. It dyes up beautifully, evenly, and has lovely body. And we’ve carefully curated the tweedy bits so that they wouldn’t overpower our beautiful colors.

Plucky Knitter Tweed (44% wool, 44% superwash wool, 12% viscose) 225 yds / 205 m
$25 a skein

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the limited quantity of Tweed after VK Live, we will be running a special pre-order update next weekend.

_____

Meet Rambouillet:  Rambouillet Wool is an exquisite, fine wool and we couldn’t resist creating a fingering weight yarn with this beautiful fiber. A closely-related breed to the Merino sheep, the wool from the Rambouillet sheep is similar with a micron count between 18-24. The fiber has a lot of crimp giving “Rambo” it’s characteristic springiness and elasticity.

Plucky Knitter Rambouillet (100% rambouillet wool) 420 yds / 384 m per 100 g
$32 a skein

We have also released a handful of new patterns! Cardigans, hats and a cowl!

Cuttin’ A Rug: Bold colorwork accents this fun hat and cowl set. Knit in your favorite Plucky Knitter worsted weight, this design knits up faster than you’d think!

Boogie Woogie Wrap: Gradient stockinette stripes are punctuated with garter bands in this simple-to-work bias wrap. Two yarns are held together to create the marled fabric, one stays constant while the other shifts across the gradient and back again.

P B & J: For many of us, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is true comfort food. It’s a school lunch, after school snack, late night treat, and everything in between. Here is a hat that lets you fill your sandwich with what ever suits your fancy. We paired In A Jif as our peanut butter with colors that spoke to our taste buds…Henley (as our Strawberry) and Good Jeans (as our Blueberry). And, drum roll please, this pattern contains clearly written instructions for seamless/jogless one-row stripes. You’ll have a new hat AND a new skill!!! Let your own taste buds build your PB&J hat. Delish!
