Introducing…Halo Worsted

 

 

Hello Halo Worsted!

Soft, light, buttery, squishy, lofty.  When it comes to describing a yarn base, any one of these words are music to our ears.  When all of them describe one base of yarn perfectly, well, that’s just about as good as it gets for us!  When Halo Worsted finally arrived at the barn, the collective sighs of “oooh’s” and “ahhh’s” could be heard near and far!

 

Halo Worsted, $40 for 115 yards of 100% Cashmere per 60 gram skein.  It knits up light as a feather, and of course, has that luscious halo that we all know and love!  For all of you that loved the old 8-ply Plucky Aran Cashmere base, I’m here to tell you this one is for you…but, even better!!

To celebrate the launch of Halo Worsted, we are so pleased to release a brand-new unisex hat pattern! Introducing, Lennox. Lennox is FREE with the purchase of 2 skeins of yarn in this update, any base!!!  Five different options for this simple-to-knit hat! Two sizes available for worsted weight yarns, and three sizes available for fingering weight yarns – your choice! This quick-knit makes the perfect gift for all your loved ones. All climates, rejoice! Simple and classic, Lennox is the perfect hat for guys and gals alike, we dare you to knit just one. It’s just not possible. Now comes the hard part…what color?! Oh, or #mixthosebases perhaps? A stripe version? Someone stop me. Please.

Another Plucky Surprise!!!

 

THANK YOU!!!

First of all, thank you guys SO much for joining us this past Friday!  Was that fun, or what?!  In fact, it was so fun, we think the weekend festivities need to continue on through Monday to ease us right on into the week after a long holiday weekend!

What can you expect to see?  Here’s just a few things we have up our sleeves and who knows what else:

FREE SHIPPING on all DOMESTIC orders
and FREE SHIPPING on orders of
$75 or more INTERNATIONALLY!!!

_______

 

 

  • Winter QPP!  With winter right around the corner, it’s that time, again.  Time to pre-order your favorites from this palette!  How fun will these colors be on some of the new bases?!  Hibernation and Parka…I’m looking at you!
_______

  • Luxe Club sign-ups!  Yep, that’s right!  Friday was Classics and now it’s Luxe’s turn!  If seeing the last few installments of this Club has given you a case of the “I really gotta have that”, now’s your chance!  Remember, the Luxe Club lets you have a little bit of luxury delivered to your door every 2 months, with the payments broken up affordably into 2 payments.
_______
  • One hit wonders!  Yes, there will be one hits across the bases from fingering weight on up!  Plus, Bungalow One Hits!
Just like this past Friday, please keep your eyes peeled to Instagram, Ravelry (Locked Announcement thread, the fast moving Update thread and Wishlist thread – Hayley, Seth and I will be chit chatting away and helping and granting as many wishes as we possibly can, in real time!) beginning Monday, November 27th 9:00 a.m. EST, going throughout the day.

An important note: Since all of the yarn available in Monday’s update (and all other subsequent Ready To Ship or Instant Gratification updates) has been carefully inventoried, dyed, and is ready to be shipped, we will no longer be able to accommodate requests for cancellations or changes of orders.  Please be absolutely certain that you fully intend to purchase and receive any yarn you check-out with from the update.  It is administratively very difficult and impedes shipping times to allow for these changes. Thank you for your understanding!

If there is something else you’d love to see in this update? Please hop on over to the Wishlist Thread on Ravelry!  We’re happy to grant as many wishes as we possibly can!

Warmly and with our sincere thanks,

Plucky’s Instant Gratification!

 

Exciting Times!!!

It seems every year, right about this time, all of us catch the “Gotta Have & MUST Knit It Now” fever. You know, quick knits for ourselves and for the special people in our lives. After all, we cannot have our nearest and dearest walking around with cold noggins, necks and hands can we?! Good news, we are ready to help!

Please join us on Friday, November 24th beginning at 9:00 a.m. Eastern and going throughout the day, on the Plucky BLOG and in the Plucky RESERVE for an update to beat all updates! A ready-to-ship update that includes three brand new colorways (see below), mysteries, one hit wonders, pre-orders, swag, kits and who knows what else!??!? And, because we want to thank you for being so wonderful, we are offering FREE SHIPPING on everything $50 or more domestically and $75 or more for our international friends! You guys deserve it! So, whether you are planning on a single color project, craving a mystery or are getting ready to cast on all the hats, I hope you’ll find something in this update that will keep you snug and cozy (see what I did there? Ha!) through the end of the year and beyond!

 

 

Now, about those new colorways!

 


 

At Last:  At last, indeed!  The Twill of pinks, it goes with almost everything!  Yes, that’s right – pink as a neutral!  Not too warm (but warm), not too cool (not really cool, but looks amazing with all the cool toned colors).  Rose gold lovers amongst us?  We think this fits the bill quite nicely!  Warmer and much darker than Dreamy.  Plie’ and Pink-a-Boo are much cooler and rosy toned.  Melba and Bellini are much warmer and coral/orange leaning.  Warmer than Pink Pony.

______

 


 

Torch Song: Our unrequited love runs deep for this one!  Deep, broody shades of burgundy, chocolate, charcoal and black.  Not as purple leaning as Bada Bing, more burgundy, less red leaning than Starlet. More variegated than Cabaret.

______


Sticker Book: This one comes with a dose of nostalgia, and takes us right back to the 80’s and our Lisa Frank loving days!  Shades of teal and turquoise highlighted with even brighter bits of teal.  More turquoise, slightly darker and more variegated than Technicolor Teal.

_____

 

 

Hayley and I have picked a selection of our favorite SB colors from this past year, plus a few of yours.  Surprise…the Scotland colors were the big favorites!  Eton Mess, Tartan, Hamish, Highlander, Stuart, and Nessie! There will be a button on the Plucky blog to pre-order on the following bases: Primo Fingering, Bello Worsted, Groovy, Groovy, Baby, Sophisticate, Trusty and Trusty Fingering!

Pretty In Pink! New Club!

 

Pretty in Pink…a yarn club!
Pink.  Hot pink, neon pink, soft baby pink, coral pink, purple-y pink.  I love them all!  While it’s true that it’s not necessarily my go to for an entire garment, I find that pink is the perfect thing to make color work pop.  It’s just so good with a wide range of other colors…warm and cool neutrals, scummy colors, blues, greens, aquas…and the list goes on!  Pink. It can be a neutral in my world!

November Colors of the Month!

 

November Colors of the Month!

For November’s first Color of the Month offering, we decided to go with something old, something new, and something sentimental.  The official Color of the Month for November is, of course, Skies of November…an oldie, but oh, such a goodie!  For purely sentimental reasons, and because it’s fantastic paired with Skies, we had to offer Sammy Sammerson.  A tribute my dear old pal, Sam, who left us last week after almost 14 wonderful years of being constantly by my side.

It’s The Shindig After Party!

 

Well…we made it back to the barn after what was the most ah-mazing weekend!  We truly can’t thank all of you enough for traveling far and wide to help us celebrate Plucky’s 10thAnniversary!!  But, you know us…we couldn’t let the party stop there!  The truck is unloaded and the boxes are unpacked.  It’s time to keep the party going on Reserve!

 





Boy, oh boy, did we unpack some fantastic things!  For starters…Shooter sets in 3 brand new color combos (along with some old favorites)!  With the purchase of a Shooter set, we are delighted to offer a code for our brand new shawl pattern, The Shooters Shawl!  This shawl uses 2 skeins of your favorite fingering weight base as the main color with 1 shooter set. We introduced a slew of new colorways at the Shindig, and yep, you guessed it, some of them will be making their way onto Reserve across bases, too.




And now, for the really big news!!  We are over the moon to present you with 2 of the 3 brand new bases that made their debut this past weekend!  Introducing, Trusty Fingering…yep, Trusty’s little sister (375 yards 100% Merino SW) and Snazzy (195 yards, 80.20 Merino. Cashmere)…Aran weight and oh, so squishable!  While it’s true that a sampling came back home with us, you can be sure they will all be coming out to play at a Blog update soon!

Introducing Plucky Knitter’s 2017 Fall Collection: Coming Home

 

You’re Invited to a Very Special Update!

It seems like just yesterday. It was a hot day in June, I was standing in my kitchen over boiling pots filled with yarn, then, I blinked, and a decade went by! How did that happen?!  We’re not only celebrating Plucky’s 10th Anniversary, but, also…drum roll, please…our 2017 Fall Collection: Coming Home!

Fall has finally arrived in Michigan, and, with it, I’m so excited to share our latest collection! Coming Home will give you a glimpse into our part of the world, Western Michigan. All of the photography for the collection took place here, in and around our hometown. Our side of the state is known for its woodlands, lakes and rivers, and, at this time of year it absolutely shines! Inspiration is truly in abundance, from weathered buildings filled to the brim with character to the natural beauty of the landscapes that surround us.  We hope you are as excited for this peek into our part of the world as we are in providing you with a little tour!

 

 

Traditionally, our collections have been collaborative ones and this one is no different. Hayley provided invaluable support throughout this project, and, of course, our fellow Michigander and pal, Jill Zielinski has once again joined us in contributing designs.  In addition, this year, I am so proud to include Michele Wang as a part of the creative team!  My deepest thanks to all of you lovely ladies!

 

 

From the perfect Fall accessories, to fabulous sweaters that will become staples in your wardrobe, this collection has something for everyone!  Without further ado, we are absolutely delighted to present you with 13 new designs! So, grab your coffee, tea, or mulled cider (I’ll be having a mimosa!) and join in Coming Home with Plucky.

 

 

And, how’s this for exciting?!  There will be a blog update centered around the collection on Friday at Noon EDT, with a second part on Sunday at 8 PM EDT!

 

 

These types of updates can be especially fast moving, but, of course, we want to help as many as we can! Therefore, we will be starting a Collection NO CHAT Thread where you can post your questions, and, Hayley and I will answer. There will absolutely still be the regular Update Chatter Thread where we can talk about all things updates, this thread will just be for the Collection Update this weekend.

 

 

We have put together a smashing list of colors and bases for this special update, but, we wanted you to have time to view the collection and let us know what your wishes are! The WISHLIST Thread will be reviewed before EACH update time!

It’s Fall QPP Time, Part 2!!!

It’s time for the re-release of the Fall QPP and this time, for a little extra fun, the color(s) of the month for October will be added to the mix.

Please note: If you have your heart set on Fall QPP colors in the quantities you want, this is the time. While there may be a few QPP colors in the marketplace at the Shindig, we have not dyed across the colors and bases for the QPP like we did last year for the Glamping with Plucky event.

But, you might be wondering, what you to knit?!

Back To School Update

 

Back To School!

It’s Here!! Back to School season is upon us!  It’s that magical time of year.  Dry, crisp, cool air…the slightest change in the leaves…and, best of all, around these parts it’s time for all the knitwear!  So, my friends, it’s time to get your knit on!!  To inspire you, we’ve put together a spectacular lineup of colorways, including two new Small Batch colors!

 

 

Ok, are you ready for the a big reveal?!  We are so happy to be welcoming Spiffy Lace to the Plucky lineup!  Holey moley, you guys, this stuff is ah-mazing!  With a blend of 63.37 Cashmere and Silk, and 765 yards, it’s buttery soft, yet has that touch of silk to give it the loveliest sheen and the perfect amount of structure.  It positively begs to be knit into lacy shawls and whisper soft sweaters.  Then, there’s my personal favorite way to use it…hold it with other bases and make a truly custom fabric where it’s all about the texture!

IG (Instand Gratification) Guidelines

 

Yarn available in an IG (Instant Gratification) update is on hand and ready to ship. This means we are not be able to accommodate changes to orders once they have been placed. Likewise, we would respectfully ask that you not place an order then request it to be canceled. IG’s happen in real time and if you have removed an item from the sale, it is no longer available for someone else.

Due to the nature of IG update’s (yarn we have on hand and that is ready to ship) it may be possible that multiple skein orders will not match as closely as those that are dyed to order. We will do our best, but please know that if ordering several of the same skeins, there is a chance of receiving different dye lots.

One last note! Unfortunately, there is a possibility that we may make an error in counting, entering and packaging these orders. If we do, please know that we will refund that item immediately upon discovery and/or will be sure to let you know if we might be able to offer a substitution! 

Instant Gratification In The Reserve!

 

Woohoo!! An IG Update is hitting the Reserve!

Don’t we all love a bit of instant gratification once in a while?!  Well, this Friday, August 11th is your chance to get Plucky in an instant! You might be wondering how is this different from shopping the Reserve any other time – well, for starters, it’s more interactive. I will be taking requests and adding things in (as I am able – inventory permitting) in real time as we go through the morning and early afternoon. It’s so fun! The inspiration we all get from each other and, well, for sure you guys inspire me with you endlessly creative ideas on how and where to use your Plucky! How festive is that?!?

 


There is sure to be something for everyone with this sale!  We’ve been setting aside a fantastic array of choices, and there will be everything from onesies and twosies across the bases, to sweater quantities, to mystery kits – What the Fade anybody!?!  We even have a few of the bases that have not been able to come out and play at the last few updates…Sophisticate, Bello, Bello Worsted and Cashmere, we are talking about you!!!


 

Helpful Information:

  • Please join us this Friday, August 11th starting at 10:00am, EDT, and going through the afternoon in the Reserve Shop!
  • These orders will ship within 1-4 business days.

Selvedge – August Color Of The Month!

And just like that it’s August and the color of the month is…. Selvedge!

Because, what doesn’t look great with a pair of jeans?!!?

So let’s kick of this last (‘sniff sniff) month of Summer with an eye toward Fall. TomorrowTuesday, August 1st there will be a pre-order update featuring Selvedge and friends! The update will begin and end on the 7’s! 7:00 a.m. EDT to 7:00 p.m. EDT to accommodate as many of you as possible! And, just for fun (and because mysteries are so fun) we will be offering three skein mystery kits from this update. Leave us a message in the notes of your order and we will do our best to accommodate your wishes!

Like Toad-ally! Update

I know that’s not a toad, we’re just using some artistic license here 😉

 

 

We’re Like, Toad-ally in Love!!

If there is one thing you should know about me when it comes to yarn (besides my undying love for all things gray), it’s that I completely adore neutrals with a twist, and green comes in at a very close second to my love of gray!  So, you can imagine how much I love, really LOVELike, Toad-ally!  It’s all I can do not to cast on everything with this beauty, including colorwork!  I love this earthy, deep, broody neutral with delicate colors like Plie’, or with brights like Keep It Classy!  Along with Like, Toad-ally, we have a line-up of brand new colors that we can’t get enough of!!

 



 

Beginning with this update, we are delighted to offer a new service!  We will be providing (posting to Ravelry and the Plucky Instagram feed) pictures of new colorways, not only on Primo, but also on some of the bases that can change the colors up a bit…think Snugs, Cashmere, Oxford/Scholars/Crews.  Not only will there be a picture of it in skein form, but also a knitted swatch so you can really see the nuances. We hope you love it and find it to be helpful!

See examples of swatches below…

  • Cachet
  • Crew

We are super excited to open up our subscription clubs!  This time we’re starting afresh with the ability to use the new My Account feature on our website. We want to give everyone a chance to sign-up for something new or give Plucky Classics or Luxe a whirl for the very first time!

We’re saying goodbye to a few bases from the previous rounds but we’ve rounded out the options between the clubs with new bases that have quickly become Plucky favorites.

 

For those who may be contemplating Plucky Classics, let me give you a little background. Hayley and I love old movies. The Classics. Or, at least those that we consider to be classics! Our idea of a perfect evening is to slip an old movie into the DVD player, make some popcorn, sit back with our knitting and lose ourselves in a movie. But, it’s not just the oldies that we consider Classics. Who doesn’t love a cheesy 80’s or a 90’s disaster movie?  Our tastes are eclectic, to say the least.  And, it’s from our personal list of classic movies that we draw our inspiration for the Classics subscription colorways.

Sign up for your Plucky Classics in July and payments will automatically continue, every-other-month. Your first shipment will be sent by the end of August. Payments and shipments will continue in this manner until cancelled.

 

 

And what about Plucky Luxe? Does it work the same as Classics? Well, yes…and no! Plucky Luxe gives you an opportunity to have regularly scheduled doses of luxury cashmere and special cashmere blend bases arriving at your door, but on a budget plan!

How does that work you ask?! Upon enrollment, a first payment (half of the total subscription cost) will be deducted from your PayPal account or charged to your credit card. The second half will then be processed on the same date in the following month.

Your Luxe subscription will then ship in the beginning of the month following the second payment of each 2-month cycle (i.e.: Payment in July, payment in August, shipment in early September).Your Plucky Luxe subscription will continue on this payment plan and shipping schedule until cancelled.

Here is how the Plucky subscription sign-ups for Classics and Luxe will work:

  1. Sign-ups go live on Monday, July 24 for Classics, and continue through Wednesday, July 26, or until spots remain available.  Luxe sign-ups will be live on Thursday, July 27and continue through Friday, July 28, or again, until spots remain available.  Both sign-ups will be on the Plucky Blog.
  2. Upon enrollment, your first payment will be deducted from your Paypal account or charged to your credit card. Subsequent payments will continue to be deducted as follows:
    • Classics – the same date of every-other-month
    • Luxe – the same date of every month
    Subscription payments will repeat on this same schedule until the subscription is cancelled, which you will now be able to manage using the ‘My Account’ feature on our website!
  3. By the end of every month following the subscription payment, your Classics order will be shipped to you. You will continue to receive yarn, every other month, as long as payment processes and your subscription remains active. For example, subscriptions paid in July will ship by end of August. Luxe will ship the beginning of the month following the second payment of each 2-month cycle. Example: 1st subscription payment in July, 2nd payment in August, shipment in early September.
  4. The base and quantity you choose will be your subscription until you cancel your subscription. You may cancel your subscription at any time however, you may not change your subscription mid-term or sign-up for a new subscription until sign-ups open again!
  5. Bases available:
    • Classics: Bulky, Cachet, Cambridge 2.0, Cashmere, Cozy, Crew, Crewbie, Feet, Lodge Fingering, Lodge Worsted, Nifty, Oxford 2.0, Primo Aran, Primo Fingering, Primo Sport, Primo Worsted, Scholar 2.0, Sweater, Sweater Aran, Trusty
    • Luxe: Cachet, Cashmere, Groovy, Groovy, Baby!, Spiffy, Halo
  6. Pricing will be our standard per skein yarn price plus shipping to your location.
  7. You can have multiple subscriptions in ONE signup!
  8. Here is a YouTube video to show you how sign-ups work! CLICK HERE TO WATCH

Plucky Classics is a great (and fun!) way to ensure you get a regular dose of Plucky yarn, especially if you find it difficult to make the updates (time zones, work schedules, etc.). Plucky Luxe allows an opportunity to indulge in the luxury of cashmere without breaking the bank!  Sign-up and yarn will magically appear in your mailbox. Easy Peasy!

Please note: Subscriptions will be sent as they are ordered.  If you have extenuating circumstances or questions, please email us at pluckycustomerservice@gmail.com at any time with questions and we will be happy to assist you!

June #dailyplucky Winners!

Here are the #dailyplucky winners for June 2017! Congratulations and thank you so much for playing along and inspiring us daily!

It’s a Last Call Flash Sale!!!

Ok, are we the only ones who blinked, and suddenly June was over?!  We truly can’t thank you all enough for making this Anniversary month so special, and for helping us celebrate 10 years!  This Friday, we’re wrapping up the festivities and going out with a bang!

For starters, we are closing out the festivities with a re-release of It’s Your Party!, Before You Go-Go, Princess Phone, and, of course, Narragansett Gray…all at 17% off!  Plus, as a complement to this set, we are having an early release of July’s Color of the Month…Twill!  Your eyes do not deceive you, this means that you can get all five of these lovelies for 17% off on any base you choose!

With this update, the Summer QPP will be making its last appearance for the year, so, if there’s a color you need for your collection, now’s the time!

And, finally…we have a lineup of seven new colors that we are elated to introduce to you!

Beach House:  Weathered periwinkle perfection, with undertones of light cornflower.

Book Smart:  Shades of charcoal, ranging for mid to dark, with bits of purple and copper brown.

Happy Trees:  A color that would make Bob Ross proud!  Layers of green ranging from pine to chartreuse, to olive.

Heartbreaker:  Shades of deep dark magenta, red-violet and the slightest undertone of burgundy, all with a dark blue/black wash.  More of a pink/purple undertone than Bada Bing.

Hot Stuff:  A fiery variegated skein with shades ranging from light carrot orange to chili pepper red.

I Sea You:  A shape shifter, much like beach glass at the seaside.  Shades of warm silvery Lake Placid blue with the lightest wash of Abbey green.

Sole Mate:  Shades ranging from olive to copper brown with bits of magenta and burgundy and finished with a cool dark brown wash.

The Anniversary Update!!! 🎉 🎉 🎉

The Anniversary Update!!

It’s finally time for the main event!!  While it’s true that we have festivities planned for the entire month of June (and maybe even a few sneaking into July – you know, the after party!), the highlight of this special month is always the Anniversary Update!  I truly cannot believe Plucky is celebrating its 10th anniversary! When I started this journey, I never expected it to be the crazy ride it’s been, and I’m sincerely grateful every.single.day that all of us here at Plucky have the privilege of being a part of the fiber arts community. To show our gratitude, June is the month we celebrate you!  Without all of you, the last 10 years would not have been possible!

Let’s get this party started, shall we?!  We are thrilled to present three brand new colorways!  Introducing, Grumpy Goat, Totally Tubular and Small Batch No. 029!

Grumpy Goat:  Tonally variegated with shades ranging from creamy off white to light silvery gray.  A mash-up of Twill and Wintry Mix in one skein!

Totally Tubular:  Predominately speckled with shades of gray with the best little bits of neon pink, yellow, green and aqua.  Super cute!!

Small Batch No. 029:  Any purple lovers in the house?  We made this one just for you!  Distinct, delicate speckles of purple, ranging from lavender to eggplant.

Just for Giggles

 

Just For Giggles!!!

When things go a bit sideways, sometimes, a good laugh is just what the Dr. ordered.  After the website/tech issues this past week, we all decided that we could use a few giggles around these parts!  So, let’s say we try this again, shall we?  Introducing…Just For Giggles and Laugh Out Loud!!!

 

 

___

 

Just For Giggles:  Shades of hot pink, neon yellow-orange, royal blue, aqua and green.
If all things bright (and we mean BRIGHT!) make your heart go pitter-patter, this one’s for you!!

 

Laugh Out Loud:  Shades of hot pink, light neon yellow, aqua and orange, with the best little bits of charcoal to bring them all together.  It’s bright, but with the volume turned down, perfect for anyone wanting to dip their pinky toe into the bright side of the lake!

And one more thing! We are ridiculously excited to release a new base with this update…Sweater Aran!!!  You guys. SWEATER ARAN!!! It’s the big brother to Plucky Sweater and Plucky Feet, and oh boy, are we smitten!  With a blend of 90.10 Merino/Nylon and 185 yards per 115 gram skein ($25), this workhorse yarn is perfect for blankets and knits for the kiddos, and because of the tight twist and plumpness, the stitch definition is off the charts with this one!

Narragansett Gray Update

 

Ten Years!

Ten years.  As I type this, I can hardly believe it’s true!  This June marks 10 years since I started dyeing yarn in my little cottage kitchen and Plucky Knitter began.  While there have been changes (not to mention a few studio moves) along the way, what inspired me back then inspires me still today…an all-consuming passion for fiber, texture and, of course, color! Always color!  Along with this passion, one thing that has never changed is our dedication to and gratitude for all of you!  We quite simply cannot thank you all enough for allowing us to serve you!

In true Plucky tradition, this June, we will be kicking off the festivities to celebrate this special anniversary, and to celebrate you!!  The party starts on June 1st, when we will have FOUR colors available at 17% off from 11:00 a.m. Thursday to Noon EDT on Friday!

 

 

We are beyond excited to offer three oldies, but goodies…Narragansett Gray (the Color of the Month for June!), Before You Go-Go and Princess Phone!  All three of these colors hold a special place in our hearts, and they are equally fabulous on their own or all together!  For this offering, we are also delighted to introduce a brand new Small Batch colorway, It’s Your Party!  This little beauty features delicate speckles that perfectly accent all three!
