Mannequin Monday – Ohra

 

Hey, hey, hey! It’s Mannequin Monday!

The Dog Walker! 

The Dog Walker!

I love accessory knitting. In fact, it’s safe to say that it is my absolute favorite – I LOVE it! #neverenoughknittedaccessories – that should be a thing!
Hats of all kinds, cowls, and the perfect chunky wrap/shawl have always been my knitting favorites. That being said, nobody appreciates a beautifully hand-knit sweater more than I do! However, while I have knit more than a sweater or two in my time as a knitter, sometimes it just seems a tad fiddly and intimidating…stitch gauge, row gauge, short rows, seaming, finishing, oy! Just let me knit a wrap! But then, I started thinking about my wardrobe staples…plaid shirts, t-shirts, jeans, boots, loafers…they all beg to be paired with sweaters. So, what I’m getting at here is that it’s high time for me to up my sweater knitting game and get a head start on fall knitting, and I’d love to take you on this journey with me!

Meet the first sweater in this #upyoursweatergame series, The Dog Walker! Knit circularly from the top-down with straightforward shaping around the neck and raglan sleeves, The Dog Walker is perfect for beginners and seasoned sweater knitters alike. Picked up stitches at the neckline create a cozy broken-rib turtleneck with matching cuffs and hem. Written for both worsted and aran weights across multiple sizes, there’s sure to be an option for everyone. We are thrilled to be having a KAL with this little beauty and hope that you will join me, Hayley, Michele, and Jill as we knit ours.  We will be documenting the process in Ravelry and on Instagram with progress pics, so be sure to follow along!

Colors Available and Ready-To-Ship!

We have picked a fabulous palette of colors that have already been dyed up across a few worsted and aran bases and are ready to ship.  There’s even an option to mix those bases and hold Yakkity or Beauregard with Lusso…I couldn’t help myself!  Oh, and how could we forget?!  With this update, we are pleased to introduce you to Yakkity Aran (available only in Sea Salt, Old Mill, and Peppercorn) and Beauregard Aran!!

 

The Dog Walker KAL will run from July 1st – August 10th.  If you haven’t already, be sure to join the Plucky Ravelry group.  We’ll have a dedicated thread with a timeline, not to mention helpful tips, tricks, camaraderie (post your photos for us to admire and enjoy!) and support.  Tell us your favorite colorways and yarn pairings and post pics of walking your dogs! On top of all of this fun, there will be yarn-y prizes!!

Plucky Pop-Up!! Thank you!

What a colorful, happy and festive blur this weekend was! Our hearts are full to bursting with gratitude that I cannot begin to adequately convey, and our tired (but very happy!) faces are still aching from all the smiling, laughing and happy tears! The enthusiasm you showed for Plucky’s new H2 was more than we dared dream.

With much love & gratitude…. 

xo,

Sarah, Hayley & the Crew

P.S. Thank you for sharing your photos – I was woefully lacking in photos from the weekend!

Home Is Where The Heart Is Update!! The Pop-Up After Party!

Home Is Where The Heart Is!

This weekend marks the first ever Plucky Pop-Up Shop at our brand-new downtown Hastings location.  We wanted to celebrate this momentous occasion with all of you, and boy, did you guys help us celebrate!  We can’t begin to thank all of you who came from near and far to see us.  This weekend also kicked off the Plucky Anniversary month of June, so let’s keep this party rolling, shall we?!  We’re delighted to offer all things Plucky Pop-Up to those of you who couldn’t join us in person…new colors, new bases, new patterns, new swag, and FREE SHIPPING!!
______

Beauregard:
Ok, we’re gonna say it…this is one of the most sumptuous yarns you’ll ever get your hands on! We’ve blended together two of the most luxurious fibers in the world, yak and cashmere.  The lofty body of the of the yak fiber perfectly balances out the soft downiness of the cashmere.  An absolute treat!  $46/skein

______

Yakkity:
Are you sensing a theme here?  You’ve no doubt noticed that we’re downright smitten with Yak, and what’s not to love?  It’s light, soft and warm like cashmere, while maintaining quite a bit of body and blooms beautifully like our beloved wool.  Simply put, it’s got loads of personality and pluck! $42/skein

______

 

 

Galore:
It’s cashmere GALORE with this not-so-little yarn baby! We are so very smitten with this limited-edition run of 100% pure cashmere. Galore boasts a whopping 670 yards of light and lofty fingering weight cashmere per skein ($115/skein), and takes color like a champ! With its generous yardage, two skeins make a fabulous (and very generous!!) sized shawl or wrap for you to wrap yourself in cashmere Galore!!

 

______

 

Twirligig:
If you ask us, this little number is absolutely a must-knit!  Its charming eyelet design and eye-catching gradient motif keeps the knitting simple, yet entertaining.  Layered over your favorite top or jacket, it’s sure to be the last thing you grab as you head out for the day!

______

 

The Beverly:
Simple yet striking lace, a whimsical striping motif, plus infinite color possibilities (hello, Gradients!) adds up to a whole lot of knitting fun!  Wear it wrapped up around your neck or effortlessly draped over your shoulders. Either way this piece is sure to be in heavy rotation.  Did we mention that there are two sizes to choose from?!  This pattern includes instructions for a 3-color small version, or a large version knit using two fingering weight Plucky Gradient sets.

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!

Weathervane
Crevasse
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.

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!

The 1-color version, shown above, is knit in Traveler Sport in color Enchantment. Below the shawl is shown again in Traveler Sport, but this version is a subtle 3-color gradient. Top of shawl to bottom, the colors are Flannel, Classic Rock, and Bespoke.

 

Be sure to follow us on Instagram for weekly knitspiration!

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!
