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…

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).

________
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.

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!

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!


 

In other VERY exciting news, with this update we saying hello to a brand spanking new (somewhat limited edition at this time) base…introducing, Plucky Halo! Buttery soft with the most luscious halo you ever did see, its 215 yards of fingering (leaning toward the heavy fingering weight spectrum) weight 100% Cashmere per 60 gram skein.

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!
