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!

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…
Bases available:
  • Cachet
  • Crew
  • Feet
  • Groovy
  • Groovy, Baby!
  • Oxford 1.0

It’s Sign-up Time! – Plucky Classics & Plucky Luxe Club

It’s that time!  Time for a new round of both Plucky Classics and Plucky Luxe!

Sign-ups begin right here on the Plucky Blog beginning with Classics on Monday, July 24 – Wednesday, July 26, 2017 followed by Plucky Luxe, Thursday, July 27 – Friday, July 28, 2017.

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!

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.

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!

You guys…thank you so much for all of the Fine Print and Footprint love!  We are so excited to offer these two new beauties across all.the.bases!  Well, almost all of the bases, but trust us, there’s sure to be something for everyone!  It’s no secret that Hayley and I have a deep love for neutrals with a twist, and without a doubt, these two check all of the boxes!

Fine Print:  Layers of gray, from the lightest dove gray to the broodiest charcoal speckles, with hints of broody blue sprinkled for good measure (because, blue!).  If you love gray as much as I do, this is a must for your collection.

Foot Print:  Layers of beige, caramel and the slightest hint of gray with bits of chocolate brown, creamy pink and orange sprinkled in.  Warm, creamy neutral lovers, this is your jam!

Available Colors:

Wondering what to pair with these exceptional neutrals?  Mystery kits will be available!  There will be a button to purchase either a Fine Print or Footprint 3 skein mystery kit by base.  Each kit will include Fine Print or Footprint, along with 2 coordinating colors.  If mystery kits aren’t your thing, no worries!  We have a selection of five additional colorways available in this sale that coordinate beautifully for all of your colorwork plans.  Here’s are a few of our favorite pairings…

Anniversary Shindig!

Plucky Knitter Tenth Anniversary Celebration

Friday and Saturday, October 27 – 28, 2017
Amway Grand Plaza Hotel, Grand Rapids, Michigan

 

Remember this?  Well, it’s time to let you in on every little detail, and we hope you are as excited as we are!!!

This is a weekend that has been 10 years in the making! Its solid foundation is rooted in past events, so while it’s not quite an open house at our studio (that seems eons ago) or a retreat in Holland (City Flats, you were great), or the campfires we shared while Glamping (Islandwood you still have piece of our hearts), it does have the best bits from each of these, like…knitting with mimosa’s, fashion shows and karaoke!  Toss all that in with our favorite parts of the past few Shindigs and this year we have no words other than ‘Party’ to describe what we have in store for you!

We hope you will allow us to share our love of what we do with the folks we do it for! And that’s YOU! Please join us as we celebrate 10 years of laughter, love, adventures in color, unruly hair, crazy dogs and wonderful friendships!!

Without you, our dear Plucky friends, we would not have this beautiful community to celebrate, so whether you join us in person or in spirit, our 10th Anniversary Party promises to have fun in store for everyone!

Warmly,
Sarah, Hayley, Lorilee & The Crew

800 Yard Dash

On your mark. Get set. KNIT!!!

We’ve been teasing this week, and now it’s time for the big reveal!  Hayley and I are thrilled to be collaborating once again with our dear pal, Jill (aka Knitterella), and it’s no surprise that she has designed yet another show-stopper.  Introducing the 800 Yard Dash!


Worsted Version Size A, shown in Scholar 1.0 in colors
Cassidy (MC), Splendor (CC1) and Feather Duster (CC2).

________

Fingering Version Size A, shown in Primo Fingering in colors
Oatmeal (MC), Small Batch No. 028 (CC1) and Wanderlust (CC2).

Worsted Version Size B, shown in Groovy Baby (held double) in colors
Fantoosh (MC), Umber (CC1) and Loafers (CC2).
________

With it’s easy to memorize textured sections and stripes (who doesn’t love to knit stripes?!), this modern triangular shawl is all about  texture, stripes, and color, and it’s as fun to knit as it is to wear!  Did we mention that it is written for two sizes AND two weights of yarn? Options galore!

This pattern includes instructions for a standard sized shawl and a generously sized blanket shawl, plus, an option for fingering or worsted weight.  Hayley and I have had the best time putting together color options for this kit, and we hope you love them as much as we do!

Kits offered! 

 

But, we haven’t spilled all of the beans yet! With this kit, we are positively giddy that it’s time to introduce a base that we have fallen head over heels for….Groovy, Baby!!!  This unique fingering weight base has all the things we know and love about Groovy…100% Cashmere in a single ply with that binder that gives it the most fantastic texture, and it knits up as light and lofty as a feather!

Old Meets New

Old Meets New!

Hayley and I have been busy coming up with new colorways and we are thrilled to share the newest batch of repeatable colorways with you!  These beauties (on a few assorted bases) will be headed to NYC with us next weekend, but, we have to share with the class…so, a  Blogupdate is in order!

In addition to the new kids, we dusted off the old recipe book and found some vintage Plucky colors, and we think it’s high time that they came out to play again! Grady’s Grouse… neutral, warm and broody…yes, please!  Sweet Nothings…vibrant, jewel toned perfection…purple lovers unite!

A few words about our new colorways:

Empire –  Shades of mid-gray with light greenish gray undertones.  More gray/less aqua than Maelstrom.

Bada Bing –  Deep shades of maroon and burgundy with hints of charcoal.  Darker than Full Bodied Red and less purple leaning than Garnet Martini.  Cooler, less red leaning than Cabaret. Think broody black cherry!

Endless Summer –  Periwinkle undertones with the loveliest blurple shading. Less purple/more blue than Southern Summer.

Succulent – Tonally variegated with shades of cool mid-green, navy and charcoal. There is not really anything to compare this to. Succulent is in a class by itself.

Bingo –  Delicate yet zippy and zingy! Peachy pink undertones with strawberry pink shading.  More pink/brighter than Hudson. Much more coral leaning than Petticoat.

Cantina –  Juicy, saturated shades of coral and peach with a hint of a pink undertone. Darker, more saturated than At the Copa. Lighter/brighter than Punchy. Festive!

Frond –  Spring green in a skein! Yellow leaning, bright fern green. Think mid-century Palm Springs.  Not as bright as Chlorophyll and lighter/brighter than Splendor.

High Line – Inky and tonally variegated mid-navy blue with silvery undertones.  Lighter, with more gray undertones than Good Jeans.  Not as “bright” Dive Bar.

It’s finally here – salad season is upon us! I can’t wait to make the first batch of Morzo Orzo for the year! Do you have a favorite salad recipe for this time of the year?

 



 

Hayley and I are about to hit the road again, this time we’re headed to NYC for a trunk show at Annie’s! We would be delighted to meet any and all that can make it out to see us! We have started the slow pack, and we’re bringing along some fabulous new colorways (Empire, High Line, Succulent, Endless Summer, Bingo, Bada Bing to name a few), plus, some old favorites. Now, the eternal question – what knitting and shoes to bring?


 

Black River Blanket Shawl. This is my kind of knit! Miles and miles of stockinette because sometimes you just want to cast-on and go! It’s all I can do to stop myself from binge knitting another… gray perhaps?

Mix n’ Match!

 

Mix n’ Match!

I LOVE to mix and match!  Dishes, glassware, linens, throw pillows, texture, and pattern. I could go on.  And on.  But, when it comes to mixing and matching yarn, well that’s when it gets especially fun!  I never cease to be entertained by the endless combinations of mixing both colors and bases.  There has been some wonderful pattern inspiration popping up on Ravelry this week that you may be eyeing, we sure are!  So, we thought it would be a splendid idea to have an update where you get to have all the fun, and mix and match ‘til your heart’s content!

 

 

Here are just a few of the patterns that have caught our eye this week as well as a few of the Mix N’ Match combos we love!

Fellas and Friends!

The boys are back in town!

Whether it’s for us gals who can’t get enough of all the neutral/Tomboy inspired colors, or if you are looking for the perfect color to knit for your Fella, or if you’re a Fella who knits….these colors are for you!  We love the tonal semi-solids on their own, but we adore how they play so nicely with the broodier Small Batch colors (Stuart, Frasier and Hamish…I’m looking at you!).  We’ve brought out some of the oldie but goodie Fellas, as well as a few light/bright colorways that accent the Fellas beautifully and, don’t forget that there will be the brand new Mystery guy included as well!

Save the Date!

I can hardly believe it’s true. It’s almost here… Plucky’s 10th Anniversary!!

It turns out time actually does fly by when you’re having the time of your life. I could bore you to tears with story after story of all that has transpired since this all started 10 years ago. There are so many memories whirling around in my head (not to mention the entire Plucky Crew’s laundry list!), but, for now, I’ll spare you the details because this message is about what makes Plucky what it is…and that’s YOU!

So, please, let me just say…thank YOU!!! Thank you for all, and I mean ALL that you, our dear customers and friends, have done to bring us this far. Never could I have imagined when I started dyeing yarn in my tiny kitchen ten years ago, that Plucky would grow to what it has become today. It truly has been an amazing decade, and my gratitude simply cannot be captured in mere words. I am beyond grateful to you, and the incomparable Plucky Crew, for joining me on this incredible adventure!

To show our appreciate and to celebrate, we have loads of fun stuffed up our sleeves! For starters, you are cordially invited to come and celebrate with us at the Plucky 10th Anniversary Party, October 27-29, at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Please save the date because this party is for you, and what a party it will be!! This celebration will have some elements from past Plucky events that we’ve all come to know and love, including, of course, collaborating with our friend Lorilee, as well as some new surprises we think you’ll really enjoy.

I hope that as many as possible will be able to join us for a weekend full of fun, memories (and making new ones!) and of course, knitting! We’ll be sharing more details in the weeks ahead, so stay tuned!

Please allow me to say, one more time, thank you! If the past 10 years are any indication, I can’t wait to see what the next 10 years of our adventures together will be!

The Nifty Update!

The Nifty Update!

Is anyone else out there scratching their head, wondering how it is possible that it’s nearly April?!  The arrival of Spring (break!) has us jonesing for light and airy knits, and let me tell you; we have a positively brilliant brand spanking new base to share with you!

  
We are delighted to introduce the newest base in the Plucky lineup….Nifty!  Nifty is a beautiful 4 ply fingering weight yarn, comprised of a blend of 60% Merino, 30% Cashmere and 10% Nettle Fiber, with 310 yds per 115 g skein.  Nifty is priced at $30 USD/skein. The merino/cashmere blend keeps it oh so soft and provides a lovely drape, while the small amount of nettle fiber gives the tiniest bit of sheen and textural finish to your fabric.  This unique base is simply perfect for all of your Spring and Summer knits! We’re rounding out the update with a handful of our other favorite bases for warm weather knits and a selection of colorways that we love for Spring and how they translate onto the various fibers.


If you find yourself in need of some pattern inspiration, we’ve got you covered, these patterns caught our eye and we think they’d be splendid in Nifty!

Happy Friday one and all! Hayley and I have returned from our adventures across the pond, and what an adventure it was…full of inspiration (castles, lochs and plaid, oh my!), visits with fiber friends old and new, and a fantastic class with Justyna…Eastern uncrossed knitting…who knew?! Our minds are still blown!

 

(image source) 

It’s time. Time let you in on a little secret. The last couple of months I have been sleeping on a silk pillow case, and I’m here to tell you…it’s a game changer! I admit, I was skeptical…could it really be that great? Yes!! It’s made a huge difference in the bed head (really helps with the frizz factor on my curly hair) situation, not to mention how fantastic my face feels! I also use this one (different price point and works very well). And, I almost forgot. They stay cool. Don’t you just love a cool pillow case?!

After what feels like a decades long search, I have found the perfect (for me) Spring travel coat. Great price point. Packs lightly. Fits over everything. Repels rain. This coat definitely checks all the boxes. I think you will love it!


(Tartan on Cashmere)

 

 


My travel knitting for this trip was
Barlow, and I cannot recommend this pattern highly enough! Great texture and fun stripes keep the knitting interesting, while at the same time being easy as steak pie and hobnobs for TV or conversation knitting. And it flew off the needles!

For the Love of Scotland Update

 

Hayley and I are so excited to be attending Edin Yarn Fest this weekend!  Although we are not attending EYF as vendors, we are just as thrilled to be attending as knitters and students! I’m sure it’s no surprise that we have been daydreaming about all things Scottish. Before we even set foot in mainland Scotland (Shetland already has a piece of our heart) we’ve been inspired by all things green, gray, dark, and broody. And, be still my heart, the plaids!

So, that can only mean one thing! We are happy to bring to you an update full of sixteen (SIXTEEN!) new “Small Batch” colorways inspired by Scotland. This Sunday evening, March 12th at 6:00 PM EDT (don’t forget, we spring forward this weekend here in the States!) on the Plucky Blog you will find a host of Small Batch Scotland inspired yarns on assorted bases. If you are new to our Small Batch yarn, please take a moment to read about it on our blog!

We’ve enjoyed seeing many of our Plucky friends attending EYF as well as meeting and making new ones! If you see us through the weekend, please stop and say, “Hello”!

Meet our newest Small Batch colorways!

Meet a few our newest Small Batch…

We are having a blast expanding our catalog of Small Batch colorways!  The latest additions, inspired by Scotland, will be available for pre-order here on the blog on Sunday, March 12 at 6:00 p.m. EDT!  We thought it would be a good idea to refresh a previous informative blog post about these special, unique pieces of art.  We hope you enjoy and have as much fun with them as we have with development and knitting with them!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Can we talk a little bit about Small Batch?!

We decided on the name ‘Small Batch’ because it was the perfect description of how these skeins of art come about. They are done in very small batches with each and every skein having the various colors applied one at a time. It’s a time-consuming and labor intensive process but one that we’ve come to love! It allows us to bring you our art in every skein, making for fun and truly unique projects!

Something we ask you to please bear in mind (and this is true for hand-dyed yarn aside from Small Batch) is that no one skein will be exactly like another. As an example, one skein of Small Batch may have more green speckles or be more saturated with all of the colors comprising that particular Small Batch colorway, while another from the same ‘batch’ may have less saturation, be more speckled or have more blue than the one that was created directly beside it. Again, it’s just the nature of hand-dyed, artisan yarn and each skein is truly unique.

What you may see in a glamour shot or a project pic of a Small Batch may be very close to what you receive or it may be very different in its placement of colors on the skein. These differences are not quality issues. True Small Batch, or hand-dyed yarn, is inherently unique to each skein and it would be next to impossible to replicate every speckle of each colorway represented in a skein of Small Batch. Often times, skeins that appear significantly different from one another in the skein, may look more matched once they are wound (happens to me all the time) and the opposite may also be true.

Please know that if you order more than one skein of the same Small Batch colorway, on the same base, we always do our best to provide you the closest matches possible, just as we do with multiples of our traditional colorways. We simply ask that you keep in mind the unique characteristics that make Small Batch what it is and know that each skein is one-of-a-kind!

You are unique, your knits are one of a kind and so is your small batch!

Thank you so much!

Blue Grey Club Update

Raise your hand if you love gray/grey/gris…and blue!

I LOVE gray.  Oh, I know what you’re saying.  “But, it’s just gray.” Let me tell you; it’s not only one shade of gray, it’s all.of.the.grays. Cool, clear grays; broody, layered grays; grays with the slightest hint of another color; and my latest obsession, gray with speckles!  But, do you know what I adore almost as much as gray?  Yep, you guessed it; blue!  If I’m not knitting with gray, it’s a good bet that some shade of blue has found its way on to my needles.  So, I think it’s high time for the latest Blues and Grays Club offering!  Along with a handful of our favorite club offerings from the past, we’ve put together a laundry list of coordinating and contrasting colors from the Plucky repeatables catalog.  There’s something for everyone here!  And, don’t forget about the mystery option for both gray AND blue!!

Bye, bye Tuscadero, and Hello, Loch!

Phew!  We’ve made it through February!  Why is it that the shortest month of the year somehow seems to last the longest?  I, for one, could not be more thrilled to be turning the calendar page over to March.  To celebrate, let’s say we have a little party in Reserve! For starters, we’ll be having one last hoorah for Tuscadero, PLUS; we will be offering Loch on special for a limited time, too! That’s right; today in Reserve is your chance to get two different colorways at 17% off!

Winter QPP Re-Release & Sweater is BACK!

Smitten with Sweater…
Sweater is back, you guys. SWEATER is BACK!!!  We are especially excited that this tried and true base has returned in time to join the Winter QPP party as it winds down. There’s something for everyone with this collection; from frosty blues (Polar Dip, I love you!) and greens to icy pinks (Parka, anyone?) and yellows, PLUS two fabulous neutrals that have stolen our hearts…Old Man Winter, I’m looking at you!

With its lovely twist, crisp stitch definition, and the gorgeous way it takes color, Sweater is a brilliant choice for everything from sweaters (of course!) to hats, socks, blankets, and, it is absolutely fantastic for kids knits. Then, to top it all off, we are delighted to introduce you to two brand new colorways, Good Jeans and Avocado Toast!

The Islander Update


We all have one.  You know, your desert island knit.  For some people, it’s socks, others, sweaters.  Well, if we were stranded on a desert island, which is not sounding half bad right now, this knit would be on our needles!  Introducing The Islander!  Knit in your favorite heavy fingering/sport weight yarn, with stripes and simple lace, the knitting is so engaging. This easy to wear shawl has unique shaping that allows it to drape beautifully over the shoulders, while at the same time wraps oh so perfectly around the neck.

We have had the best time putting together kit options for you, and we hope you love them as much as we do!
