Moody Blues and an IG Live!

Moody Blues and an IG Live!
BLUE, oh how I love you! It’s no secret that I love all things grey and those orange-y reds, grassy greens and pink (of course!) always seems to creep into my personal knitting, but blues, they just make me happy. Aqua blues, blue ribbon blue, steely blue grays/gray blues, in fact the moodier the better! And, of course, we cannot forget the grand daddy of the them all, navy blue – that just might be my favorite blue of all – no, wait! Then there’s faded blue jean blue! See what I mean, there are just so many great blues! They can be mellow or exciting, whimsical or in your face zingy. But, one thing is for certain, they are never, ever boring. Blue is the color of the sky and the ocean. It can stand alone or work in harmony with practically any other color you can possibly imagine. Blue simply makes me smile!

We are happy to announce that we will be focusing on some of our favorite blues in this update, which will also include a brand-new mystery blue, woo-hoo! In addition, please be sure to join us for a live stream on Instagram starting at Noon on Friday, February 22nd where we will be taking your questions in real time, sharing some of our favorite blues, and chatting about adding a dose of Spring into our current projects.

Shawl shown above is pattern Hayley’s Comet and it’s knit in Bello
in colors Early Light, Narragansett Gray, Skies Of November, and Overcoat.

Going through all the blues got us thinking about past pattern offerings that featured blue and Hayley’s Comet jumped off the screen at me. I LOVE the blue version we have, but it got me thinking about another variation of this lovely shawl and low and behold it made it’s way onto my needles!  My new version is Halo held double with a little bit of broody and healthy dose of Spring. Tune in to the IG Live this Friday for the reveal!

Grays are so Dreamy Update!

The Dreamboat Shawl and a Gray Mystery!

Ah, gray…you’re ever so dreamy. It’s that time, again. Time for a new gray mystery! This mystery offering has brought us some fabulous grays through the years…Hi-Ho Silver, It’s a Twister, Chimney Sweep, and the list goes on. What will the mystery gray be this time around?!

 

Available Colors:

Along with all this fun, we are pleased as punch to introduce you to Dreamboat!  Dreamboat is a gorgeous trifecta of texture, ruffle, and stripes! The body of this shawl is worked from the top down in a simple knit-purl textured motif and ends with a whimsical set of stripes. All of this is brought together with the most adorable ruffle you ever did see. It’s generous size makes it perfect for draping over the shoulders and arms to ward off a chill, while the light and airy texture of Yakkity keeps it easy to wrap around the neck, too.

Dreamboat is shown above in Yakkity in colors Old Mill (MC) and Sockeye (CC).

Customer Appreciation Update – Part Two!

 

Who’s ready for a Customer Appreciation Part Two update?!  Well, we certainly are!  You guys are just simply the best!  To say we were bowled over by your wishes is an understatement, and it warms our hearts to continue ticking things off the wishlist for you!

With this go ‘round we are delighted to be bringing you The Cowl!  There is nothing more satisfying than an easy-to-knit, beautiful-to-wear, luxuriously soft accessory. The Cowl made its appearance at VKLive in NYC and due to overwhelmingly popular demand, here is the “recipe” for this chic little piece. Held triple-stranded with one worsted weight and two fingering weight yarns, the possibilities are truly endless. Subtle shaping is achieved using three different needle sizes and our sample was knit until we ran out of yarn, so have fun with this little cowl!  The pattern is free and oh so gratifying to knit…cowls for everyone!

 

Shown above are The Cowl Kits No 1, No 3, and No 10.

Also, if you missed it, we are proud to direct your attention to the Spring issue of Interweave Knits.  Anne Jones’s Geranium Shawl is a featured design.  To celebrate this stunner we are including both Bello Fingering and Fantoosh if you would like to knit your own!

Customer Appreciation

 

The reception we received in New York was beyond our wildest imaginings and even the polar vortex we came home to has not dulled the glow. Our hearts are overflowing…but dare we say, our brains are a bit numb!  So we hoped we could enlist you guys to help us plan this next update. We want to know what you would like to see! What bases, what colorways and dare we say, is there a mystery kit option you can’t live without?! We know we want to include the Boogie Woogie Wrap, maybe Cashmere Sport and we are thinking Monday and Tuesday for the update. But beyond that, we need your help!

Please use the WishList thread in our Ravelry group to let us know what you would like to see. It is, after all, because of you that we do what we do! We will be sending out an announcement on Saturday to get the ball rolling and as long as Seth will let us add to the dye list, we will!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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

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!

This one is giving us all the winter feels!

 

 

The shawl is easily adaptable for a one color knit, or five! The version shown above is knit in Snug Worsted and the colors are Twill, Cecilia, Good Old Days, Campari, and Scalloway.

 

 

The one color version shown here is also knit in Snug Worsted, in color Powdered Sugar.

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.

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.

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!!

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

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,

Skies of November & Barely Birch Update

 

I find few things comparable to the beauty of a Michigan Fall and those broody skies we see this time of year. This welcomed time is full of ample excuses (the weather from those broody skies for example!) for having a warm cup of something in hand at all times while cozying up to the fire with knitting that you just can’t seem to put down. As makers, we take great pleasure in the feeling of contentedness we receive as we surround ourselves (and those we love) in wraps, hats, blankets, and sweaters that we have made with our own two hands.

 

 

While we bask in our love of all things autumn, we would like to invite you to join us over on the blog Thursday, November 1st and Friday, November 2nd (while supplies last!) for a Skies of November & Barely Birch update, and to celebrate the changing of the seasons, everything is 15% off!
In addition to being able to get both of these broody offerings we will also have 3 and 5 skein mysteries that include one or both of the sale colorways ~ it’s your choice! We love making mystery kits for you!

Just The Naturals!

Hayley, Michele and I had so much fun at Rhinebeck this past weekend!  The Fall colors, delicious donuts and apple crisp a la mode, time chatting with fellow fiber-loving friends, and all the fabulous knitwear on parade made for an inspiring, delightful weekend!  There was serious sweater knitting inspiration everywhere you looked.  Since we find ourselves in high sweater knitting season, we think it would be a great idea to have a release of some of our favorite sweater bases in their natural colors. Please check it out in the Plucky Reserve!
