Like a Lamb Update

In like a lion, out like a lamb…  March.  In like a lion, out like a lamb and gone in a flash. Here at Plucky we’re so excited to be wrapping up this whirlwind of a month by bringing back Tweed (plus a few friends…Hello, Cormo and Rambo!).  If you have yet to try this fabulous new base, now’s your chance!  Why do we love Tweed so much?  This outstanding yarn has equal amounts wool and superwash wool.  This balance allows the yarn to take on the best characteristics of both.  It dyes up beautifully even and has lovely body.  And, those gorgeous little tweedy bits have been carefully curated so they won’t overpower our beautiful colors.  If you ask us, it’s pretty much perfect all the way around!

Retirement Party – Part 1!

 

You Are Cordially Invited!

It’s a retirement party to end all retirement parties! You may have heard us mention a time or two over that last several months that we’re working on a new website. While it hasn’t been all sunshine and roses, ice cream and cookies, or prosecco and cashmere, it’s definitely been a labor of love, and we can’t wait for the big reveal! This journey has taken us on a walk down memory lane along the way, going through all of the colors from the last 11 (and a half!) years, and what a walk it’s been! Each weekend in March will feature a list of colorways taking their final bow on the Plucky stage. In addition to the list of retirees, each update will feature colorways invited as party guests to round out the color list. So, what are we waiting for?! Let’s get this party started!

Grays are so Dreamy Update!

The Dreamboat Shawl and a Gray Mystery!

Ah, gray…you’re ever so dreamy. It’s that time, again. Time for a new gray mystery! This mystery offering has brought us some fabulous grays through the years…Hi-Ho Silver, It’s a Twister, Chimney Sweep, and the list goes on. What will the mystery gray be this time around?!

 

Available Colors:

Along with all this fun, we are pleased as punch to introduce you to Dreamboat!  Dreamboat is a gorgeous trifecta of texture, ruffle, and stripes! The body of this shawl is worked from the top down in a simple knit-purl textured motif and ends with a whimsical set of stripes. All of this is brought together with the most adorable ruffle you ever did see. It’s generous size makes it perfect for draping over the shoulders and arms to ward off a chill, while the light and airy texture of Yakkity keeps it easy to wrap around the neck, too.

Dreamboat is shown above in Yakkity in colors Old Mill (MC) and Sockeye (CC).

Customer Appreciation Update – Part Two!

 

Who’s ready for a Customer Appreciation Part Two update?!  Well, we certainly are!  You guys are just simply the best!  To say we were bowled over by your wishes is an understatement, and it warms our hearts to continue ticking things off the wishlist for you!

With this go ‘round we are delighted to be bringing you The Cowl!  There is nothing more satisfying than an easy-to-knit, beautiful-to-wear, luxuriously soft accessory. The Cowl made its appearance at VKLive in NYC and due to overwhelmingly popular demand, here is the “recipe” for this chic little piece. Held triple-stranded with one worsted weight and two fingering weight yarns, the possibilities are truly endless. Subtle shaping is achieved using three different needle sizes and our sample was knit until we ran out of yarn, so have fun with this little cowl!  The pattern is free and oh so gratifying to knit…cowls for everyone!

 

Shown above are The Cowl Kits No 1, No 3, and No 10.

Also, if you missed it, we are proud to direct your attention to the Spring issue of Interweave Knits.  Anne Jones’s Geranium Shawl is a featured design.  To celebrate this stunner we are including both Bello Fingering and Fantoosh if you would like to knit your own!

Customer Appreciation

 

The reception we received in New York was beyond our wildest imaginings and even the polar vortex we came home to has not dulled the glow. Our hearts are overflowing…but dare we say, our brains are a bit numb!  So we hoped we could enlist you guys to help us plan this next update. We want to know what you would like to see! What bases, what colorways and dare we say, is there a mystery kit option you can’t live without?! We know we want to include the Boogie Woogie Wrap, maybe Cashmere Sport and we are thinking Monday and Tuesday for the update. But beyond that, we need your help!

Please use the WishList thread in our Ravelry group to let us know what you would like to see. It is, after all, because of you that we do what we do! We will be sending out an announcement on Saturday to get the ball rolling and as long as Seth will let us add to the dye list, we will!

It’s Tweed Time!

Plucky Knitter, Tweed (44% wool, 44% superwash wool, 12% viscose) 225 yds / 205 m — $25 a skein

It’s Tweed Time!

We are thrilled to finally be releasing pre-orders of Plucky Tweed!!  This outstanding base has equal amounts wool and superwash wool. This balance allows the yarn to take on the best characteristics of both. It dyes up beautifully, evenly, and has lovely body. And we’ve carefully curated the tweedy bits so that they wouldn’t overpower our beautiful colors.

It’s always exciting when something TRULY new comes along.  Plucky Tweed is just what I had been waiting for.  It creates fabric that is breathable, a little bit rustic (in the best way!), and with a touch of texture.  When I first met Tweed, it instantly spoke to me as the perfect choice for a new technique that I wanted to try.  And, that’s how the PB&J hat was a born!  One-round totally jogless stripes are demystified in the PB&J pattern.  So, let’s go make a sandwich!

Meet Rambouillet:  Rambouillet Wool is an exquisite, fine wool and we couldn’t resist creating a fingering weight yarn with this beautiful fiber. A closely-related breed to the Merino sheep, the wool from the Rambouillet sheep is similar with a micron count between 18-24. The fiber has a lot of crimp giving “Rambo” it’s characteristic springiness and elasticity.

P B & J: For many of us, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is true comfort food. It’s a school lunch, after school snack, late night treat, and everything in between. Here is a hat that lets you fill your sandwich with what ever suits your fancy. We paired In A Jif as our peanut butter with colors that spoke to our taste buds…Henley (as our Strawberry) and Good Jeans (as our Blueberry). And, drum roll please, this pattern contains clearly written instructions for seamless/jogless one-row stripes. You’ll have a new hat AND a new skill!!! Let your own taste buds build your PB&J hat. Delish!

Winter Brights Update!

Pattern in above photo is Terra mitts, from designer La Maison Rililie.

But first, we need your help…. Hayley and I have a bit of decision fatigue with the lead up to VKL (what size and color balloons, which twine, how many twinkle lights, do we bring these samples or those samples, and on and on) so we need your help deciding what colors and bases to offer because we want to be sure to offer just what your hearts desire.

Wow – you guys really knocked our socks off with your love for our new colorways! Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts!

Coming Attractions Update!

And now, let us present to you: Coming Attractions!

We’re peeling back the curtain a bit to reveal a different look that we are so pleased to present, and we just couldn’t wait any longer!  While you will always find tried and true Plucky semi-solids and tonal colorways, we’re taking our fun very seriously these days with some new and unique dyeing techniques.  Think smudgy variegated colors with a hint of speckle thrown in. We’re excited to present these new colorways as a sneak peek of what’s to come.  2019 is going to be full of new colorways, new bases, new places, new subscription offerings, and new pattern capsules. Who KNEW?! Oh, and speaking of new bases…

Introducing a new member to our family of bases at Plucky Knitter – SOLO DK!  Because we love Solo just as much as you do, we couldn’t help but think we needed to add another weight and thought DK would be the perfect addition! Just like its fingering weight sister, Solo DK is a 80/20 Merino/Silk blend. It also has a lovely twist making knit-purl textures, slipped-stitches and other simple textures truly sing.  And crocheters rejoice! Solo DK is also perfect for making all those beautifully textured treble stitches really 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 DK really comes alive after a good soak, it softens up beautifully while at the same time maintains its body. Solo DK is 115 grams and 275 yards, $28 per skein.

Here are some great pattern suggestions for Solo DK to inspire you:

• Carbeth Cardigan
• Plumpy
• Textured Shawl Recipe
• Syncopation Adoration Cowl
• A Twist To It

Winter Whites Update!

 

Winter Whites!

Fresh, white snow is nothing short of pure magic. The chill of winter is often associated with a stoic, rigid nature of being. However, once you step out and gaze at the horizon, you’ll be filled with awe at the enchanting whimsy that fills the air and the surrounding gorgeous white aesthetic.

So much inspiration can be derived from the magical icy scape and so with that in mind, we thought this Friday would be a great time to feature a collection of whites, neutrals and other winter inspired colorways! Please join us Friday, December 14th, starting at noon EST and then going thru the weekend, while supplies last for a celebration of all things Winter and White!

Long Johns, Henley, and Waffles Update!

Meet Long Johns, Henley, and Waffles!

We’ve turned another page on the calendar and the last one for 2018. Wow, how did that happen?! With the arrival of December comes a brand new 3-skein color kit.  Introducing, Long Johns! This set has us all swooning, plotting and planning at the barn. In addition to this fabulous 3-color option, we are thrilled to offer two brand new colors as single skeins to go with this show stopper, Henley and Waffles! Plus, Winter Halo will be making an appearance because it’s just so fabulous as an addition to this set.

 

Long Johns set:  A shaded silvery gray (think a cousin of Winter Halo), not too cool and not too warm, with speckles of charcoal, dark camel, red-orange and green plus a mid-toned shade of camel with coordinating speckles of charcoal, dark camel, red-orange and green all comes together with a lovely dark, yet bright poppy red.

___

Henley:  A burst of happiness!  This mid-toned bright orange-leaning red complements a variety of skin tones and looks fabulous with many other colorways.  Brighter with more of an orange undertone than Sockeye.  More red-leaning than Punchy or Campari.
___
Waffles:  Shades of golden caramel-y brown mingle with hints of mocha and dark walnut.  Darker and just slightly cooler than In a Jif, lighter and more golden than Smokey the Bear.

Quick Knits + A New Pattern!

The Cormo Update!

 

Plucky Cormo

The beauty of Fall is upon us along with its distinct temperament. What a great contrast it seems to be — the unwelcoming, cold air outside with the indoor coziness that beckons us to our favorite comfy chair and the warmth of a crackling fireplace.

This time of year is the perfect time to knit, and lately I find myself becoming reacquainted (and highly entertained!) with cables. All that glorious texture!

 

Quadri Hat, shown in Plucky Cormo in color Like, Toad-ally.

___

Crosstown Hat, shown in Plucky Cormo in color Twill.

___

What better time than now to offer our new Cormo base in the following six colors that stand on their own or work together beautifully as a color palette:

Twill - Primo Sport

Twill. If ever there was a neutral to hover the line between warm and cool, it’s Twill. The perfect neutral to show off all the intricate cables. Twill, always and forever.

___

Starlet - Cachet

Starlet. Just the right amount drama (and just how I like my drama) in this gorgeously broody red.

___

In A Jif. The quintessential camel – but nothing flat at all about this color. Nuanced neutral at its best.

___

Like, Toad-ally. Toad is totally the perfect dark and broody green. It, too,  hovers that line of warm and cool and flatters so many skin tones. Toad, how I love thee.

___

Dive Bar - Cashmere

Dive Bar. A bright and deep navy blue.

___

 

Sticky Toffee. As delicious to knit with as the dessert namesake is to eat!

___

In addition to our new Cormo, we offering a selection of bases that really bring out the very best in each of the colorways offered.

Skies of November & Barely Birch Update

 

I find few things comparable to the beauty of a Michigan Fall and those broody skies we see this time of year. This welcomed time is full of ample excuses (the weather from those broody skies for example!) for having a warm cup of something in hand at all times while cozying up to the fire with knitting that you just can’t seem to put down. As makers, we take great pleasure in the feeling of contentedness we receive as we surround ourselves (and those we love) in wraps, hats, blankets, and sweaters that we have made with our own two hands.

 

 

While we bask in our love of all things autumn, we would like to invite you to join us over on the blog Thursday, November 1st and Friday, November 2nd (while supplies last!) for a Skies of November & Barely Birch update, and to celebrate the changing of the seasons, everything is 15% off!
In addition to being able to get both of these broody offerings we will also have 3 and 5 skein mysteries that include one or both of the sale colorways ~ it’s your choice! We love making mystery kits for you!

We couldn’t agree more! 😉

All About That Base! Ox & Scholar!

 

All About Oxford & Scholar!

Why do we love Oxford (fingering weight) and Scholar (worsted weight) so much?  How much time do you have?  From the way they take the dye to how light and lofty they are, these two beauties are perfect for everything from garments to accessories!  Scholar and Oxford (75% Merino.25% Cashmere) are woolen spun which results in a fluffier, rustic yarn that traps air so it’s lighter, warmer and blooms beautifully.  At the same time, both are perfect for stockinette, cabling and openwork due to being very evenly plied. It’s important to keep in mind that these two bases take the color in a darker, heathered way and will not appear as “clear” as the Primo’s or Solo.  The base color of the naked yarn provides a wonderful warmth and depth that gives your finished piece and lovely vintage feel.

 

Today, we did our first Live Instagram video talking about these two special bases.  If you were able to join us live, thank you so much!  We loved talking to you guys in real time and hope you enjoyed it, too! We shared a number of our favorite patterns to use with these yarns and have provided all the links below for your convenience.

Introducing Plucky Cormo + Plucktober v.2!

Hi Folks! Boy, do we have a lot of things brewing in the barn and that means we’ve got a lot to share with you! Below you’ll find details about:

• The second Plucktober Update starting this weekend.
• Three more Plucktober designs, two of which will have kits available to make purchasing easier; and if you need any help making kits from the colors available, please check out the very useful Plucky APP as well as asking for help in the Update Chatter Threadon Ravelry.

• And, last but definitely not least, our NEWEST BASE!! Introducing CORMO!!!!

____
Introducing CORMO!
Cormo, a mix of Corriedale and Merino sheep, is a beautifully bouncy, springy, and luxurious yarn. Our Cormo is milled in the USA with very minimal processing, and not superwashed to allow this beautiful fiber to really sing. This incredibly fine fiber is also sturdy making it perfect for garments and other heavy-wearing knits, and its springiness making it perfect for textures and cables.
180 yards per 100g skein

LINGER SET.  This wrap can be worn as a scarf, or a blanket cardigan thanks to two simple armholes. It’s the perfect transition piece as you’ll want to layer with this in the mornings, and throw it back on at sunset. With an adorable hat to match, what’s not to love!

Preview Photos for Linger Set:
Kits Available for Linger Set:
NOTE: Linger Kits are only available in bases shown in sample; MC is on Yakkity Aran and CCs are on Halo Worsted.

BILLET.  The eye-catching graphics that adorn this colorful set are easier to knit than you’d think! Rather than traditional stranded colorwork, slip stitches are used to create this bold effect. Using only one color at a time, the magic of mosaic knitting gives this hat and mitt set a fantastic pop of color to brighten up any day! Pattern has options for a fingering weight or DK weight set.

SPLIT CUFF PULLOVER.  Hidden details in this simple pullover make this a very special knit. A split cuff detail is achieved by simply not seaming together the cuff, and the finished look of the neckband is achieved by folding it to the inside making it doubled and so cozy!

Scum + a Duet – Version 2.0!

Twice the Fun with Scum!

It’s us, again!  Time for another installment of scumm duets!

In addition to the mystery Scummy Duet, we’re pleased to offer a smashing selection of some of our favorite scummy colorways along with a few pops of color we think complement them beautifully.  If you have non-buyer’s remorse over missing out on the last mystery Duet, now’s the time to scoop up Jean ValJean & Cosette!

Colors Available…

Another new Plucktober design…The Tuft Wrap!  So simple, but oh, so good!  Worked in your favorite Plucky DK weight, Tuft is a lovely balance of soothing stockinette with a mix of garter colorwork stripes.  Basically, potato chip knitting at its finest!  The edge trimmed in tufts of yarn is the finishing touch that brings it all together. Please note that the Tuft pattern will be released on September 29th as part of the Plucktober festivities. So you can assemble your own Tuft kit, we have provided yardage requirements. Bello DK, Primo DK, Beauregard and Yakkity are all great bases for your very own Tuft!
