Instant Gratification!

IG 8-21 update

Hello there!

Something tells me this Friday would be the perfect time for an Instant Gratification update. I know that many of you are unable to attend the Shindig (we will miss you!) and I want to make sure as many of you as possible can join in the fun of the Shindig and have the yarn your hearts desire for the Plucktober festivities.

I love Instant Gratification updates as there truly is something for everyone and the project possibilities – they are simply endless. There will be mystery kits, tasting menus and, of course, some fantastic onesie-twosies and sweater quantities of your favorite Plucky bases.

So, please join us for an update in the Plucky ETSY shop, Friday, August 21st at 9:00 am EDT, filled with just about everything you can imagine – and maybe even a couple of our newest Shindig colorways will be available!

A note about the shipping of IG update:
The update is all ready-to-ship items. It is an assortment of goodies already dyed and available to ship. While the yarn is ready-to-ship, it does take us 24-48 hours to administer the shipping process to then print labels and begin shipping. Friday’s update will begin shipping on Tuesday, August 25th. Also, please note that the mystery kits and tastings menus will ship Monday, August 31st.

As per usual with Etsy updates there will be product that goes live right at the appointed time but I will be posting things as I go. If you have not yet found our update thread in Ravelry we have a great time chatting about the update while it’s happening.

If you are new to Plucky, please be sure to read through the “New to Plucky FAQ” thread for a full explanation of how the updates work.  Also, please feel free to pop into the “Your Plucky Concierge” thread and ask away.  We’re happy to help!

 

Project Spectrum, Eye Candy Friday & Things I Love ~

things-i-love-use.jpg

Not sure if this qualifies for Eye Candy Friday, Project Spectrum or just a random post. Let’s say it’s all three – shall we?

Project Spectrum  – Generally I am not a fan of purple (as in purple to wear) however, I do like purple accents on various things and I think it is a brilliant  accompaniment  to  all  the rich  Fall colors that I am so fond of. The purple beads pictured belong to Plucky girl (she is patiently waiting for me to fix the clasp for her, but in the meantime they reside in my Bauer fan bowl. Which just happens to be the happiest of oranges).

The boots? Well, let’s just say I will wear these boots until they can no longer be re-soled and they fall off my feet. Not only are they the best color, they are comfy and go with everything (at least I make them go with everything) and they have sentimental value – a gift from Mr. Plucky. Got to love Kenneth Cole. This Fall will be their third season and they are just getting broken in. I love them.

It’s harvest time in the Plucky container gardens – the yellow tomatoes are on. These, however, look a bit more orange to me (must have been left the on the vine a tad too long). Looking forward to having these sliced for lunch today.

It is absured how happy this new creamer has made me today. Caramel – Love. Hazelnut – Love. Together = Coffee Bliss.

 Well, off to the dye pot to dye some yarns to go with Project Spectrum – Thank you, Lolly, for the inspiration.
