Happy Glamping At Home/Plucktovember! We know you have been waiting for the virtual party celebrating all things Plucky and we are so thankful you’ve come by to join us. We are excited to spend some time knitting and conversing with you as we make our way through Field Trip and really digging our heels into fall (are we really in the last quarter of 2016?!).

While the structure of Glamping At Home/Plucktovember has a bit of a different look and feel this year, we are nonetheless ready to have a great time with all of you! This year will have a simpler approach in years past, the dates are a little different, but thank you for understanding that pulling off events back-to-back (even online!) require time and energy. And, we’re human. We need time to recharge our batteries, too!

So, without further ado, and if you haven’t hopped in the Kickoff KAL already, we hope you’ll join us! We loved Glamping and are ready to continue the festivities we started off at Islandwood with you all at home and to see us through Plucktovember!

Additional Notes:

Plucky Reserve!

shop-100616-320x518

Have you had an opportunity to take look at the Plucky Reserve lately? It’s getting really interesting over there! And, it promises to be a VERY lively place over the next few days!

As the yarn and all the remaining swag from Glamping arrives back in the barn (we subscribe to the ‘go big or go home’ and the ‘all that and the kitchen sink’ mentality when prepping for a show), we are inventorying and stocking it into the Reserve. We hope you will check regularly because this is going to be a constantly changing scene! Here you will find your favorite scummies, brights, tonals, greys, and SBs across so many of the Plucky bases. But, keep looking because there will also be mystery kits, project bags, Fringe Field bags, coffee mugs, pens, and on and on! About the only thing you won’t find will be a little black and white dog named Ox! He’s not leaving my side, nor I his. So glad to be home with my pups!

Please remember, items from the Reserve Shop are all ready to ship. Your Plucktober/vember project might be right there, waiting for you!

Glamping At Home With Plucky 2016

glamping-wishyouwerehere-1

Happy Plucktober First! The Plucky marketplace at Islandwood was hopping yesterday and we can’t wait to meet even more of you today! We are having an incredible time with all of you official Glampers, our Day-Glamper friends (can’t wait to meet more of you today!), and those keeping up with us from home. Plucktober is definitely on our minds and although we are away from the barn with most of our hands on deck here in WA, we are officially going to start the festivities with the first Kickoff KAL to Glamping At Home 2016!

We invite you to join us by casting on a Persephone, Persephone Throw, or the Onward & Upward hats. Have you already started a Persephone or knit the Onward & Upward hats? No worries! You are included and eligible for the KAL, too.

Glamping At Home With Plucky will run from now, October 1st through November 15th. Be sure to take a look through Field Trip and start planning your projects because we’re going to be busy! Share your plans, get inspiration and encourage your fellow Plucksters in the Official Glamping At Home thread in our Ravelry group. Click HERE to find out the details of our first KAL. There will be more news to come later next week as we wrap up the in-person Glamping event and make our way back to the Plucky barn. We promise there will be great prizes in store, including official Glamping with Plucky swag bags and Shooters! To qualify for prizes, you must post a finished project page on Ravelry and use the official hashtag “glampingathome2016”.

We are having so much fun here on the island and we are thrilled that we get to extend the fun into November with you all at home!

Wish you were here!

It’s A Wrap! Plucktober 2015

Plucktober-Logo-2015-w

And, just like that, we have knit, crocheted and woven our way through the entire month of Plucktober! Thirty-one days in which we pushed ourselves toward the finish line. I hope you enjoyed every bit of it! Now that we find ourselves sitting in November (almost the end no less!), it’s time to applaud each other for all our efforts.

Personally, I would like to thank Ien and Jill for the hundreds of hours they logged organizing and administering Plucktober. They assembled an awesome group of moderators who were on top of their groups, literally 24/7! You were terrific leaders, cheerleaders and hand holders.

I hope you had fun. Whether you finished every task you set for yourself on Plucktober 1st or not, it has been great fun knitting with you all! Thank you!

Check out the photos below. Just some of the Plucktober FOs that we loved!
