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!

It’s time for Plucktober 2018!!!

 

Welcome to Plucktober 2018 — a month long celebration of all things Plucky — the yarn, the patterns, the camaraderie, the knitting, the FUN!

And….. hold on to your hats you guys because this year we are beyond thrilled to be kicking off the festivities with a special in-person shopping event!  That’s right, the Plucky H2 Shop will be open on Saturday, September 29th from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm EDT for shopping, a sit-n-knit, and tutorial demonstrations.

This year we will have six new patterns designed specifically for Plucktober. With a fabulous mix of hats, mitts, shawls/wraps, plus a new sweater, there’s a little something for one and all!  Plus, the announcement of the second sweater in the #upyoursweatergame series! There will be special Knit-a-longs (KAL’s) for all of these patterns.

We will also have general Stitch-a-longs (SAL’s), where you can knit (or crochet or machine knit) any pattern you’d like. Our categories this year will be:
• Accessories (hats, mitts, cowls, scarves, shawls, socks)
• Baby/Kids/Home/Living (baby or children’s garments, blankets, decorative items)
• Garments

• Finish Those WIPs

FAQs

A: Plucktober runs September 29th – October 31st . Cast on for all KAL’s/SAL’s begins September 29th, at 10:00 AM EDT (official kick-off at H2 Pop-Up) and ends October 31st at 11:59 PM (your time zone).

Q: How do I participate in the SAL’s?
A: Each individual KAL/SAL will have its own (stickied) discussion thread, in our Ravelry Group, with rules posted at the top. When you have finished your project, post pictures of your finished objects on Instagram with the hashtag #plucktober2018, or tag your project on Ravelry with plucktober2018.  Prizes will be given out for each category. Only FO’s (finished objects) that are 100% in Plucky yarn will be eligible.

Be sure to stay up-to-date on all announcements for Plucktober and the Pop-Up over on the official Ravelry thread, PLUCKTOBER 2018 OFFICIAL THREAD.

Plucky Essentials…NOW OPEN!

 

Plucky Essentials…NOW OPEN!

Plucky 24/7?!? We are over the moon (thrilled I tell you, THRILLED) to offer you the opportunity to get Plucky day or night…all time zones rejoice!  Plucky Essentials is a palette of colors and bases that will always be available in the Reserve Shop for those times when inspiration strikes but your stash just won’t do.  With a mix of neutrals and colors that pop, there’s a little something for everyone!

9 colors. 5 bases. Stash enhancement made easy!

Introducing…SOLO!!

Solo!

It’s finally time to let you in on this little Solo secret, and we couldn’t be happier to shout it from the rooftops!  If you adored Single, the wait is over. This is for you!  And for the Traveler lovers among us, this is right up your alley as well!

With the fiber content of the old Plucky Single (80.20 merino silk) and the twist of Plucky Traveler, and 475 yards per skein (WOW!), Solo has something for everyone!

 

With its lovely tight twist, Solo is up to the task of making textures stand out.  Knit-purl combinations, slipped stitches and other simple textures take center stage in this base.  And for the crocheters among us, Solo is phenomenal for making all those treble stitches 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 really comes alive after a good soak, it softens up beautifully while at the same time maintains its body.  We’ve selected a list of colors that we think positively shine on Solo, including two brand new colorways.  Meet Baby Love and Metro!!

 

Baby Love:  Cool and vibrant.  Light in tone, while at the same time lively and vivid.  More saturated than Holland Mint, lighter/brighter than Petal Pusher.

 

 

Metro:  Cool, steely, sage-leaning blue/gray. Lighter and much more blue/gray leaning than Table Setting and Banquette.  Cooler, less brown leaning than Sage Advice.

Introducing Plucky Knitter Capsule No. 1!  This focused collection of six patterns is just what we all need to get us through this last stretch of Winter. With a fabulous mix of colorwork, cables and texture, there’s sure to be something for everyone!

As with previous collections, this is truly a collaborative effort and I could not be more grateful to my partners in crime! My heartfelt thanks go out to Hayley, Jill and Michele for their talent, time and dedication. We only hope that you enjoy knitting this collection as much as we did creating it. Now for the big question…what will be the first thing to hit your needles?!

 

 

To Celebrate the launch of this capsule collection release we are offering patterns and the yarn at the same time!

  • Be Steel My Heart: Steely. Smokey. Inky. Blue-ish. Charcoal-esque. Neutral with a twist that is magical with Royal Icing. Slightly more blue than Gumshoe, but still charcoal leaning.

 

 

 

 

  • Royal Icing: Shades of light pink with subtle icy lavender undertones. Slightly lighter & much more cool leaning than Cloche. Leaning more lavender than Dreamy.

The Best Of, 2007-2017!

The Best of 2007-2017!

Well, almost all of them!  To say that there have been a lot of favorites (both yours and ours) throughout the last 10 years is quite an understatement!  Putting this list together was a very trippy trip down memory lane, with so many “oh, I love that one!” and “what about this one?!” We could have gone on and on. And on.  We dove deep down into the archives, and we hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane as much we did.

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,
pluckysignature-sarah-smaller

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!

It’s Fall QPP Part 2!!!

 

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. To us, this QPP embodies all things Fall, and of course, as with other QPP’s, each color is designed to mix and match with other colors in the collection – like Garanimals (ha!!) for knitting and crocheting!  And since you gave them so much love last time, we are pleased to include Time Change, Crisps & Crumbles, Needle in a Haystack, and Bonfire Season again!!

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.

It’s Going To Be One BIG PARTY!!!

We can’t believe the Plucky 10th Anniversary Celebration is just two short weeks away!

We are so excited as we count down the days to when we will see so many of you. It is going to be one BIG party that includes knitting with mimosas, fashion shows, karaoke and has been 10 years in the making.

The reserved spots may have sold out, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still come! Even if you weren’t able to get a full entry as an official Shindigger, you can still book a room at the Amway Grand Plaza or drop by for lots of great free events (see full schedule of events for registered and non-registered guests HERE) including a mimosa bar;  coffee, tea & pastry buffet; and the Plucky Marketplace. Toss in all the favorite parts of the past few Shindigs and this year, we have no words other than One Big 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 for everyone!

Mad Fusion!

Mad Fusion!

We are delighted to introduce the latest Plucky Knitter Designs pattern…Mad Fusion!!  Anything goes with this beauty, so, the only rule is to have fun and mix those bases with wild abandon!!  This garter triangle shawl, knit on size US 13 needles (with the yarn held double, or triple, depending on what bases you decide to mix) from the bottom up is quick, mindless knitting at its finest.  The squish factor is off the charts with this one, and the finished piece is oh so wearable!  Get this on your needles ASAP and trust us, your Fall wardrobe will thank you!

 

Mad Fusion, shown in Yakpaca (held double) in colorway Going Grey.

Mad Fusion, shown in Yakpaca & Spiffy (held double) in colorway Pinstripe & Bespoke.

 

In celebration of the release of this pattern, we are thrilled to offer this pattern FREE with the purchase of any amount of Yakpaca!  Of course, you can decide to hold it double, like we did, OR, hold it with another yarn in your stash.  We are quite smitten with our sample in Yakpaca and Spiffy…so luxurious!

 

In addition to Yakpaca, the Plucky Reserve shop will be full to the gills with some of the last of the Bungalow, and yep, it’s on sale for $18/skein, so now’s the time to stock up!

 

 

Helpful Information:

  • Please join us in the Plucky Reserve, Friday, August 25th, starting at 10:00 am EDTand going while supplies last.
  • This update will ship according to Reserve guidelines, within 1-4 business days.
  • Please note:  Mad Fusion is free with the purchase of any amount of Yakpaca, however, to knit the pattern as written and to gauge, you will need 5 skeins.

 

Warmly,

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!

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!

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!

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!

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”!

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!!

Can We Talk A Little About Small Batch?!

Meet our newest Small Batch…

 

 

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!

New!! Yakpaca!

Yakpaca-Logo-1

A very happy Friday of Super Bowl weekend to one and all! I have something kind of exciting to share with you!

First things first. Reserve will be getting a little maintenance (this being the first step in an ongoing process) early next week, so we will be shutting the doors for a few days starting Monday.

But, before that happens, we have something pretty fabulous to share with you this weekend! Bungalow is in the house…..think sweater quantities across the colors, woohoo!! We adore this special, limited edition yarn. Reserve will be stocked this weekend with Bungalow, while supplies last. Anyone thinking spring knits? Get your Bungalow!

 

Bungalow Palette

Now. Drumrolll!!! We are unveiling something BRAND NEW this weekend on Reserve….introducing, Yakpaca!! This 50.50 yak/alpaca worsted weight yarn (our swatches produced 5sts/inch on a size US 8 needle) is really special.

Yakpaca. It’s pretty much everything, and more! Light, lofty and breathable with a fabulous hand and next to skin softness. It’s absolute perfection for sweaters, shawls, wraps, and smaller accessories like hats and mitts.

Hayley has already cast on for Loulou with it, and I am totally smitten with my Corner Brook! Yakpaca plays so nicely when it’s time to mix those bases! I’m mixing Yakpaca with Groovy for my Corner Brook and it’s just.so.good.

yakpaca name edit AD

 

Yakpaca ($29 per 250 yards per skein) is available in the following palette of natural colors: Beatnik (black! Still needs photo), Pinstripe, Nailhead, Going Gray, Paneling, Band Wagon, Bobbin, and Pitchfork. FYI. These colorways are exclusive to Yakpaca only. Thank you!

Happy Friday friends,

It’s Groovy being Cozy!

itsgroovybeingcozy-promo-1-1

We’ve fallen head over heals for Groovy, you too?  Well, guess what?!  It’s back in the house, and we couldn’t be more elated!  What makes Groovy so exquisite, you ask?  With its light and lofty hand, this 100% Aran weight cashmere makes some of the most luxurious fabric you can imagine.  Perfect for warding off those falling temperatures!

And then, there’s Cozy.  It’s a long time favorite, with a very loyal following and with good reason!  This velvety soft, DK weight Merino/Camel blend is perfect for both accessories and sweaters.  Hayley and I have selected a palette of colors that sing on both of these bases, including two new colorways.  We are pleased to introduce Winter Wonderland and Stone Cold!
