Almost Instant Ready-To-Ship Update!

 

ReadyToShip-050116-TITLE

It’s Spring, or rather, supposed to be Spring. But the weather here sure has us craving our flip-flops and light weight wraps rather than the rain boots and parkas we can’t seem to put away for good!  The weather, albeit damp and cold, is a great reason to knit one more hat, cast on for the perfect summer cardigan (it will be coming, right?!), or to just snuggle up under an ever-growing granny square or knitted afghan!

To help see us and our knitting needles through the current cold spell, we’ve kept the dye pots warm and have put together a thoughtfully curated list of bases and colorways.  Whether you’re wrapping up the quick, heavier weight accessories, or can’t stop dreaming about the perfect sweater or wrap to toss in your beach bag for when the sun goes down, we have something here for you and it’s ready to head your way! That’s right – ready-to-ship! Tuesday, May 3 at Noon EDT, we’ll have an Almost Instant/Ready-To-Ship Update, featuring 15 gorgeous colors on 15 of our favorite Plucky bases.

 

WaitingForSpring-ReadyToShip-Collage-2

 

Every one of the colorways will be available on each of the following bases:

  • Cashmere – Campfire Confessions, Dreamy, Enchantment – all just too much (in the very best way) on cashmere! 
  • Crew – You know how I feel about Morticia on Crew! 
  • Crewbie – See above and it’s Spring! 
  • Feet – Feet is always a good idea!
  • Lace – It’s Spring! Time for lace! 
  • Ox 2.0
  • Primo Fingering
  • Primo Sport
  • Primo Worsted
  • Rustic – the way it takes the colors…the sheen and on a workhorse yarn to boot! 
  • Scholar 2.0 – you asked for it! 
  • Single
  • Snug Fingering
  • Sophisticate
  • Traveler
And just for fun, we’ll have MYSTERY options available. These will be total mysteries – you may get a base or colorway not noted above and they will ship at the same time as all other orders. If you have any specific wishes (bases or colorways), please be sure to leave us a note, we love to grant wishes (or get as close as we can)!
ReadyToShip-MysteryKits
Do you see something you’ve been waiting for?  Or maybe one of the new colorways is just what you had in mind?  We hope you will join us on Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at Noon EDT at the Plucky Blog.

The Dreamy Update!

A Very Dreamy Ready-To-Ship Update!

The very thought of Spring arriving (hopefully for good!) inspired a brand new colorway…Dreamy! And what better reason to offer you a ready-to-ship update next Tuesday! Hayley and I are especially excited about this, and we’ve put together a springy list of colorways and bases. Honey Do, CC Bloom and Ogre are so ridiculously cute together! And then Bleu, Ogre, CC – Gah! I love it! Bleu, The Hills Are Alive and Dreamy – oh my stars! And you know I love the combination of Classic Rock, Dreamy, Ogre and Gris. In fact, I just knit up that exact combination of colors in my Grannie Annie.

So many other wonderful combos to choose from in this dreamy update. The bases available have been carefully chosen to pair beautifully with the colors available.
Colors Available:


Bases Available: 
Bello Worsted
Cachet
Feet
Lodge Fingering
Lodge Worsted
Primo Fingering
Snug Fingering
Spiffy – Whoohooo! Spiffy is back for a limited time! 
Traveler Sport
Trusty
We are so excited Spiffy is back for a limited engagement! With a blend of 60% cashmere and 40% silk, Spiffy truly lives up to its name. This sport weight yarn brings tons of texture to your stitches. Spiffy is wonderfully soft, yet the silk gives it structure and strength as well, making it a terrific choice for lacy shawls and whisper soft sweaters. It will also mix beautifully with other bases to create that truly custom fabric you have been looking for.

Lodge will be available on both weights (worsted and fingering). Lodge is a blend of 60% merino, 20% cotton, 10% linen and 10% silk, making it an wonderful choice for all climates. Some lovely sweaters and accessories have already been knit up and people are falling in love!

Please join us on Tuesday, March 22nd at 12:00 P.M. EDT on the blog for our very dreamy ready-to-ship update! Please note: this update will ship Monday, March 28th.

Saving the Best for Last – The Last IG of 2015 is Here!

Can it really be mid-December next week? I keep hearing it, seeing it, and saying it, but I still have a hard time believing it. While we’ve been at the barn with shipping, dyeing and designing, time has been marching right along!

In between packing and shipping over the last few months, we’ve been taking inventory, pulling out some oldies that are certainly goodies and setting them aside for you. I’ve been holding back some fun, saving up for a special time and that time is now – it’s time to pull it all out for our very last IG Update of 2015 (can you believe it?)!

And, to make this update an extra special and fun time, we’re making it a two-part update so as many as possible can join in on the fun! We hope you’ll join us on Friday, December 11th at 9:00 a.m. EST and again on Sunday, December 13th at 7:00 p.m. EST in the Plucky Knitter Etsy Shop!

We will absolutely have a healthy dose of our current favorites, too (Snug family of bases, I’m looking at you!). Have you seen the adorable hat Knitterella released this week? Two skeins of Snug or Bulky and you are warm and stylin’ in no time. Hayley and I had so much fun this weekend playing around with some really unexpected combinations of Snug Worsted in our “Conversationalist Hat”. If you want quick and multiple knits out of your single skeins of your favorite Plucky worsted base, this is your hat! Just one 3 skein mystery worsted/aran kit will get you three hats!
There will surely be some seldom seen colorways…Do you remember Cherries On The Mall, Forward In Flats, What A Punk and Top Hat? And, kits! You guys love your kits and we love putting them together for you. It has been a while since we’ve offered pattern specific kits, but we’ll also be sure to have plenty of Mystery kits available for the Conversationalist Hat, Alpine Trail, and Bradway to offer as well!
We’ll have something for everyone in this IG. We’ll have old friends, new friends, sweater quantities, kits, and even some rare single or very limited numbers of skeins of one color on one base. We hope to see you at the update this Friday, December 11th at 9:00 a.m. EST and again on Sunday, December 13th at 7:00 p.m. EST at the Plucky Knitter Etsy Shop!

An important note:
Since all of the yarn available in Friday’s & Sunday’s update (and all other subsequent RTS or IG updates) has been carefully inventoried, dyed, and is ready to be shipped the following Tuesday, 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!

Warmly,

Snug & Cozy, and Ready-To-Ship!

The end of the year is upon us and I don’t know about you, but I still feel like there’s so much (knitting) to be done before 2015 is over!  I have grand plans for so many projects I’ve had my eye on, but they’ll be bumped into the new year. That’s okay. Right now, as the weather is making its slow turn to winter (snow would be welcome here right now, it just makes the dark, dreary days so much prettier!), I want warm, quick, knits. I want to knit with (and be) Snug & Cozy.  And, clearly you do too based on the polls for this update! We heard you loud and clear.  Snug and Cozy it is!  We’ll certainly have other options too, but Snug will be appearing in all 3 weights and Cozy will be making a rare appearance (and its last appearance for a good while!).  Here’s the best part of this update – it’s all ready to ship!!

That’s right, ready to ship!  Thursday, December 3, at the Plucky Blog, we’ll have all the Snugs, Cozy, and 6 other Plucky bases in a Ready-To-Ship Update.  Oh, and how’s this for exciting?!? This update will be offered as a two-part update, too!  You guys deserve it. Whether you’re planning a single color project or are getting ready to cast on a myriad of hats for friends and family, I hope you’ll find something in this update that will keep you Snug & Cozy through the end of the year and beyond!

Every one of the colorways will be available on each of the following bases:

  • Cozy
  • Primo Fingering
  • Primo Sport
  • Primo Worsted
  • Snug
  • Snug Fingering
  • Snug Worsted
  • Sweater
  • Traveler
  • Trusty

And just for fun, we’ll have MYSTERY options available. These will be 1-skein & 3-skein and you choose your base! As always, we’ll take your color wishes into account, so be sure to include a note for us before you check-out.  If we have it, we’ll do our best to grant your wish!

There’s bound to be something here for everyone!  We hope you will join us on Thursday, December 3, 2015 at 9 am EST and again at 8 pm at the Plucky Blog.

An important note:  Since all of the yarn available in Thursday’s update (and all other subsequent RTS or IG updates) has been carefully inventoried, dyed, and is ready to be shipped the following Tuesday, 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!

Warmly,

It’s time for a Ready-To-Ship!

It’s that time of year when we start thinking about what we need to accomplish before the year is officially done – it always seems to creep up so quickly!  Maybe you’ve promised yourself you’d knit your first sweater in 2015.  Or, perhaps you promised all of the admirers of your talents a new hat before snow flies.  Well, no need to worry, we have you covered!  We have what you need and it’ll get to you in time so you can finish your goals and follow-through on those gifts (yes, even the ones for you!) you’ve promised.  We have yarn for you and it’s ready to ship!!

That’s right – ready to ship! Friday, November 13, we’ll have a Ready-To-Ship Update, featuring 10 gorgeous colors on 10 of our favorite Plucky bases. Whether you’re planning a single color project (that first sweater you promised yourself) or are getting ready to cast on a myriad of hats for friends and family, I hope you’ll find something in this update that will keep you on track through the end of the year! The colorways were chosen so they will play beautifully with one another should colorwork be in your plans, too.

We’ll also have an option for Mystery Marled Hat Kits.  These are so much fun and we love putting together options for you!  Marled Hat is a free Plucky pattern and a quick knit so you can be sure all of those noggins are covered in style!

There’s bound to be something here for everyone!  We hope you will join us on Friday, November 13, 2015 at Noon EST at the Plucky Blog.
