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!

The Anniversary Update!!! 🎉 🎉 🎉

The Anniversary Update!!

It’s finally time for the main event!!  While it’s true that we have festivities planned for the entire month of June (and maybe even a few sneaking into July – you know, the after party!), the highlight of this special month is always the Anniversary Update!  I truly cannot believe Plucky is celebrating its 10th anniversary! When I started this journey, I never expected it to be the crazy ride it’s been, and I’m sincerely grateful every.single.day that all of us here at Plucky have the privilege of being a part of the fiber arts community. To show our gratitude, June is the month we celebrate you!  Without all of you, the last 10 years would not have been possible!

Let’s get this party started, shall we?!  We are thrilled to present three brand new colorways!  Introducing, Grumpy Goat, Totally Tubular and Small Batch No. 029!

Grumpy Goat:  Tonally variegated with shades ranging from creamy off white to light silvery gray.  A mash-up of Twill and Wintry Mix in one skein!

Totally Tubular:  Predominately speckled with shades of gray with the best little bits of neon pink, yellow, green and aqua.  Super cute!!

Small Batch No. 029:  Any purple lovers in the house?  We made this one just for you!  Distinct, delicate speckles of purple, ranging from lavender to eggplant.

Just for Giggles

 

Just For Giggles!!!

When things go a bit sideways, sometimes, a good laugh is just what the Dr. ordered.  After the website/tech issues this past week, we all decided that we could use a few giggles around these parts!  So, let’s say we try this again, shall we?  Introducing…Just For Giggles and Laugh Out Loud!!!

 

 

___

 

Just For Giggles:  Shades of hot pink, neon yellow-orange, royal blue, aqua and green.
If all things bright (and we mean BRIGHT!) make your heart go pitter-patter, this one’s for you!!

 

Laugh Out Loud:  Shades of hot pink, light neon yellow, aqua and orange, with the best little bits of charcoal to bring them all together.  It’s bright, but with the volume turned down, perfect for anyone wanting to dip their pinky toe into the bright side of the lake!

And one more thing! We are ridiculously excited to release a new base with this update…Sweater Aran!!!  You guys. SWEATER ARAN!!! It’s the big brother to Plucky Sweater and Plucky Feet, and oh boy, are we smitten!  With a blend of 90.10 Merino/Nylon and 185 yards per 115 gram skein ($25), this workhorse yarn is perfect for blankets and knits for the kiddos, and because of the tight twist and plumpness, the stitch definition is off the charts with this one!

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!

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!

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.

Fellas and Friends!

The boys are back in town!

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!

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!

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!!

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!

Small Batch = BIG FUN!

 

 

 

SmallBatch-CLUB-Logo-5

 

 

Drum roll please…We are thrilled to announce the newest offering in the lineup of Plucky Clubs, the Small Batch Club!

We love clubs and we love Small Batch so we thought it was high time to smoosh the two together!  Whether using them as an unexpected pop with more tonal or semi-solid colors, or letting them shine all on their own, we adore the added dose of fun and whimsy that Small Batch brings to our knitting.  For each new offering of the Small Batch Club, we will be creating a brand new mystery Small Batch colorway.  But, that’s not all!  One thing that makes Small Batch so special is that each skein is created to complement existing Plucky colors, forming a cohesive palette in each skein.  So, to take the guesswork out of all of your colorwork plans we will also be offering  coordinating colors  that will complement the Small Batch mystery skeins – let the plotting begin!

 

smallbatchbigfun-collage-new

 

The Small Batch = Big Fun club will be similar to our Gray Club, Blues and Fellas clubs. You do not need to subscribe. This will give you the opportunity to order as many skeins of the mystery Small Batch, in the bases you choose, as well as coordinating/complementary colors for your planned projects. If you haven’t already tried it, this might be just the chance you have been waiting for to take a skein of SB for a test drive!

 

We have also selected some amazing project photos from knitters who have used Small Batch yarns in their projects. If any of these delightful finished pieces are calling to you, each pattern can be found in the Ravelry data base…
• Morrison v.1
• Morrison v.2
• Margot Hat….great in SB with a solid accent
• Jimmies
• Goldfinch
• Quicksilver
• Dendros
• Therapy
• Leverett
• Upward
• Light Rain
• Bolinas

 

Here is a current list of bases offered…
• Bello
• Bello Worsted
• Bulky
• Cachet
• Cashmere
• Feet
• Primo Aran
• Primo Fingering
• Primo Sport
• Primo Worsted
• Rustic
• Single
• Snug Fingering
• Snug Worsted

 

Please join us on Sunday, November 13th at 8:00 PM EST and Monday, November 14th at 9:00 AM EST on the Plucky Blog, for our very first Small Batch Club Update.  When the Update goes live, you will find drop down menus for selecting the brand new mystery SB color, in your choice of bases, as well as the supporting colors and bases that Hayley and I have selected.

LAST CHANCE FOR FALL, QPP!

lastchancefallqpp-promo-2

EXTRA! EXTRA! Last Chance!!!

Last chance for Fall, the Fall QPP that is! And, how’s this for exciting news?!  Primo Fingering and Feet are back in the house!  Perhaps you all heard the collective and resounding “WOOHOO!” coming from the Plucky barn this week when that delivery arrived.  We could not be more thrilled to offer the Fall QPP for the last time this season with Feet and Primo Fingering as available base options.  It has to be said, all of these colors truly sing on both of these bases!  We are also pleased to offer all of the newest Small Batch options, including Color Tour, which perfectly compliments all of the colors in the Fall QPP.

And, if this isn’t exciting enough, we have seven brand new colors to release for the return of Feet and Primo Fingering!  All of them work beautifully together and are fun additions to pair with your favorite Fall QPP colors.

Plucky Reserve!

shop-100616-320x518

Have you had an opportunity to take look at the Plucky Reserve lately? It’s getting really interesting over there! And, it promises to be a VERY lively place over the next few days!

As the yarn and all the remaining swag from Glamping arrives back in the barn (we subscribe to the ‘go big or go home’ and the ‘all that and the kitchen sink’ mentality when prepping for a show), we are inventorying and stocking it into the Reserve. We hope you will check regularly because this is going to be a constantly changing scene! Here you will find your favorite scummies, brights, tonals, greys, and SBs across so many of the Plucky bases. But, keep looking because there will also be mystery kits, project bags, Fringe Field bags, coffee mugs, pens, and on and on! About the only thing you won’t find will be a little black and white dog named Ox! He’s not leaving my side, nor I his. So glad to be home with my pups!

Please remember, items from the Reserve Shop are all ready to ship. Your Plucktober/vember project might be right there, waiting for you!

Groovy Update

groovyupdatepromo-1-web

 

Groovy, Baby!
The leaves are turning, the nights are chilly, and we are in full Plucktober celebration mode!  This year is extra special because we all have a bit more time to join in on all the fun KAL’s.  Plucktober is spilling in to Pluckvember and as part of the festivities we are introducing a brand new Plucky base!  We hope you will join us in giving Groovy, our newest Plucky base, its very own welcome party.

Anyone who came Glamping with us has already had a chance to fall head over heels for Groovy.  Now, it’s time to introduce this scrumptious aran weight, 100% cashmere base (195 yards, $62 per skein) to the rest of the world. In the skein, the yarn has a slightly crimped appearance, that when knit yields an incredibly lofty and lighter-than-air fabric that has a glimmer all its own.  Groovy is beyond perfect for your most luxurious knitting!

Please join us on the PLUCKY BLOG tomorrow, Wednesday, October 12th at NOON EDT and then again at 8 PM EDT.
And how’s this for exciting?!? Your Groovy orders will be shipping Thursday/Friday NEXT WEEK!

We hope you find a Groovy kinda love!

And, be sure to check out our newest base, Cambridge. This is the bulky version of Scholar and Oxford and is featured in the Oxbow blanket, Oh Deer pillow, and the stunning Rendezvous Peak cardigan by Amy Miller. Cambridge is available as a 1.0 version and a 2.0, just like his baby brothers, Scholar and Oxford. The 1.0 mutes the colors a bit, giving a more heathered and subdued look, and 2.0 is a much more vibrant take on the same color.

QPP Fall 2016 Update

QuintessentialFallPlucky-Logo

Friday, September 9th at 8PM EDT and AGAIN on Sunday, September 11th at 8PM EDT on the Plucky Blog

Fall. Sweater, flannel and boot weather, the lake quieting down, chilly nights and of course soup, stew and homemade bread season…I am really looking forward to all of these!  And, I can’t think of a better way to spur on our anticipation than a full out, autumnal QPP (Quintessential Plucky Palette)!
QuintessentialFallUpdate-2016-12ColorCollage

 

On Thursday, and again on Friday, we hope you will join us for the debut offering of the entireQPP FALL 2016 collection. Hayley and I have put our heads together to create a range of autumnal colors that we feel will be perfect for your change-of-season projects (and Plucktober/Glamping from Home projects!).  Each individual color in this season’s QPP has been developed to pair beautifully with all the other colors from within the collection.  If a multi colored piece is on your knitting radar this fall, choosing various colors from within the QPP Fall 2016 collection will make selecting your combos a snap!

Now is the time to plan your Plucktober/Glamping from Home projects, too!   And, just a hint, but we may have a few new patterns up our sleeves that will be positively smashing in autumn colors.

 

ComingSoon-BlanketPattern_5692

 

For this Update, you will find drop down menus for the QPP Fall 2016 colors and bases, as well as additional new colors and a few established favorites that will form the basis for the update. This is a pre-order Update and your yarn will ship during the first week of October.

In this Update, each of the QPP Fall 2016 colors will be available as single skeins (or as many as you like of the colors that speak to you), letting you mix and match in preparation for fall sweaters, hats, cowls, gift knitting, Plucktober projects, and of course, the upcoming projects that I’ve had up my sleeve for a while now.  There will also be an option to purchase the entire QPP Fall 2016 collection as one kit!  But, just like the very first summer QPP, these colors will be offered for a limited time and in limited quantities. They will not be part of the regularly offered Plucky color library!

s Just a few of the other new colorways to be available….

The Gradient Update

GraidentUpdate-Logo-Aug2016

Sunday, August 14th at 8 p.m. EDT
& Monday, August 15th at 9 a.m. EDT on the Blog

Who (besides me!) thinks it’s time to update and expand some Plucky gradient possibilities?  Since the last time we held a GRADIENT UPDATE, we have added a slew of awesome new colors and bases, making building gradients  S O. M U C H . F U N !!!

Hayley and I are putting our heads together to tweak/fine tune/construct/invent/create and generally paint the town with gradient combos!  And, as always, you can expect that Plucky gradients will be a whole lot more than simply taking one color and fading it out…fading it out… fading it out.  We love a gradient with a twist!  And, gradients might be just the ticket for some ideas we have up our sleeve for VIRTUAL GLAMPERS and super fun PLUCKTOBER ’16 projects.

A glimpse of gradients offered…

GradientCollages-GroupsOf4-1 GradientCollages-GroupsOf4-2 GradientCollages-GroupsOf4-3 GradientCollages-GroupsOf4-4 GradientCollages-GroupsOf4-5 GradientCollages-GroupsOf4-6 GradientCollages-GroupsOf4-7


Please join us on the Plucky Blog on Sunday, August 14th at 8:00 p.m. EDT and again on Monday morning the 15th at 9:00 a.m. EDT.  There you will find listings for gradients as well as an option to purchase single skeins (in multiples if you wish) in the following bases:

Bello Worsted
Dandy
Primo Fingering
Primo Sport
Rustic
Scholar 2.0
Single
Snug Fingering
Snug Worsted
Spiffy

We will be bringing back some previously offered gradients, some brand new gradients, and several fun and eye-popping combos that simply make us happy!  In addition to the collages shown above, we will be adding more as the update draws near, so be sure to keep an eye on the locked Update News & Announcements Thread.  Building gradients is like trying to eat just one potato chip…. we just can’t stop!

Warmly,
Sarah

Plucky Playlist Club

PluckyPlaylist-LOGO

Friday, August 5th at Noon EDT
& Sunday, August 7th at 8:00 p.m. EDT on the Blog

 

Mixed tapes. Remember those? If you’re a child of the 80’s they were huge! Back in the day, if you were anything like me, you’d wait by the radio for hours at a time waiting with bated breath for your favorite songs to come on, hit record and hope no one made any sudden loud noises to ruin your recording!

Fast forward to today, and you can download your favorite tunes and save them to a playlist.  The possibilities are endless. Do your tastes run to top 40, R&B, oldies, classic rock, and country mixed with a dash of hip-hop? Or maybe you prefer a little Waylon and Elton paired with some Prince, P!NK and a dash of Seger?  Come to think of it, this is beginning to sound a little bit like my personal playlist and knitting! Mixing those bases and colors adds spice to my knitting – it’s my knitting playlist!

Please join us on Friday, August 5th at Noon EDT and again on Sunday, August 7th at 8:00 p.m. EDT as we put together our Plucky Playlist Club.  Just like a mixed tape, you will find a “Side A” mystery color and a “Side B” mystery color.  This means you will have four choices.  You can select only Side A, or only Side B, or both Side A and AND Side B, or you could select the entire cassette tape, containing both mystery colors and a third color that will coordinate with both SIDE A and SIDE B. If you choose the cassette, you will receive one skein of each mystery color and one skein (from the existing Plucky color catalogue) that will coordinate/accent both Side Aand Side B.   Mix it up!  Dare to mix the bases.  There are no rules here!

WHAT: PLUCKY PLAYLIST CLUB
Your choice!

  1. A single track (A or B); One skein of either SIDE A or SIDE B, on the base you select
  2. Both tracks (side A and side B); One skein of SIDE A on the base(s) of your choiceand one skein of SIDE B on the base(s) of your choice,
  3. Bonus Track; Two brand new, coordinating mystery colors, with a third color that will coordinate/accent with both mystery colors.  Mix it up!

WHERE: On the Plucky Blog
WHEN:  Friday, August 5th at Noon EDT and again at Sunday, August 7th at 8:00 p.m. EDT
SPECIAL REQUESTS: Please drop in to the WISHLIST Thread!

Quintessential Plucky!

QuintessentialSummerPlucky-Logo-1

A QUINTESSENTIAL SUMMER UPDATE!

Sunday, June 26th 8:00 PM EDT at the Plucky Blog

 

YARN-QuintessentialPlucky

 

Although you may have been living with sweltering spring weather, served up with a side of sizzle, now it’s officially summer!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

 

Help us celebrate summer with a Quintessential Summer Update.  In this Update you will find our nine color, 2016 Quintessential Plucky Palette (QPP), plus one more mystery summer neutral. The Mystery color will pair perfectly with any and all of the colors in our “QPP Kit”.  You will be able to order as many skeins of the mystery neutral as you need!

 

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Deep End. Modified.

 

On Sunday, on the Plucky blog, you will find drop down menus allowing you to choose the base for your QPP Kit.  Each kit will contain one skein of each of the nine 2016 Quintessential Summer colors, all on the same base.  Or, you may choose a 10, 11, or 12 skein kit.  This will give you the opportunity to select one of the nine QPP colors as your main color. In other words, if you choose a 12 skein QPP kit, will get the all 9 QPP colors and then you choose, say, Castaway as your additional 3 skeins. All right there in the same button. No need to contact customer service. Easy peasy puddin’ pie!

 

JuneAnniversaryMystery-GLAM

 

If you would like just the Anniversary Mystery color, you will also find an additional button(s) for choosing the mystery color, in the quantity you need and on the base you select. The mystery colorway – you can choose as many single skeins as your heart desires.

 

QuintessentialSummerUpdate-062616-TenColorCollage

For this Update, we have chosen bases that are light and breezy and perfect for a summer tee, a swingy tank or something light to slip around your shoulders. If you’re looking for a summer project, check out these links to patterns that we think are perfect for summertime knitting and crocheting!

We’re also including some fun, new swag with this update.  Once you’ve ordered your QPP Kit, you might need a bag to hold them all!  We thought it would be fun to design a project bag that would be big enough to hold your Quintessential summer projects and would be easy to find when you are ready to start your next project. These bags will also be featured in the update, with their own drop down menu for selecting the number of bags you want.

QuintessentialSummerPlucky-ProjectBag-AD2

Please join us for this pre-order update on June 26th at 8:00 PM EDT on the Plucky Blog,as we embrace the colors and textures of summer.  And, what a happy coincidence that we are still celebrating our anniversary month. That means more Golden Tickets!
If you are new to Plucky or have never participated in a Blog Update, we invite you to read our FAQ page, found HERE. You can also visit our blog post on How To Shop A Plucky Updatefor valuable information and tips.

We hope that you will be inspired to mix-n-match all the Plucky colors and bases as you celebrate your personal vision of summer.

Warmly,

The Anniversary IG Update

Plucky In An Instant!

Today, June 20th at 8:00 p.m. EDT and Tomorrow, June 21st at 10:00 a.m. EDT in the Plucky ETSY Shop!

 

And just like that… peony season is over. Let the summer fun begin!
IGUpdate-Graphic-1-1

 

In addition to all the dyeing, drying, tagging and shipping duties, you can add a whole lot of counting skeins to our last couple of weeks. We’ve been setting aside a smorgasbord of choices to offer as we continue our Anniversary Month festivities. So that means we are now ready for a ridiculously festive IG Update over in the good old Etsy shop. But where is the Reserve you might be wondering… oh it will be back! But first… the Anniversary IG promises to be very special.

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
We have lots of onsies and twosies of so so many colors, across practically all of the bases. There will be some SQs (sweater quantities) and maybe even some mystery kits. Ummm, am I forgetting anything…? Oh yes! We have OHWs (one hit wonders) and you know how I like to get crazy with that… but only on the most special of occasions!

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

In case you’re new to Plucky, IG stands for Instant Gratification.  That means that the yarn is dyed and ready to ship to you. When the IG begins, you will find us in our Etsy Shop, loading, loading, loading the shelves with Plucky goodness.  When you see something you like, you QUICKLY pop it into your shopping cart.  Your yarn will head straight to our Plucky Shipping tables and be headed out the door in a matter of days!  But, you must be quick because cartjacking is not for the faint of heart.

 


Please join us in the ETSY Shop this evening, Monday, June 20th at 8:00 p.m. EDT andtomorrow, June 21st beginning at approximately 10:00 a.m. EDT and going while supplies last.  Inventory will continue to be loaded, over several hours.  Our IGs can be pretty interactive.  Once the Etsy shop opens, we invite you to join us in the UPDATE thread to let us know if there is something you are looking for.  If we have it, we will do our best to get it into the Etsy shop for you.

This is going to be fun!

Happy Monday!

Dendros Wrap: A Plucky Exclusive Kit With Michele Wang

Dendros

Wednesday, June 15th Noon EDT & 8:00 p.m. EDT

Our month long anniversary celebration continues with a brand new wrap from Michele Wang!

 

Dendros-2

 

We are so beyond excited to share this gorgeous wrap.  Those with a keen eye may recall a teaser photo I posted a few weeks ago from a whirlwind stop out where the buffalo roam.  While hiking, I came across a lovely old fence and it seemed the perfect place to stretch Dendros across the top rail, showing the entire length and subtlety of Michele’s design.

 

Sarah-Dendros-Collage2

 

Knit from the center out, Dendros has a fresh and contemporary look, and is a perfect unisex piece. You will have a world of choices, whether you choose a quiet gradient or a complimentary grouping of four colors!  We are very excited to offer Dendros as a Plucky exclusive kit.

The Dendros Update will offer you a drop down menu from which you will choose the base and color group that speaks to you.  Each kit will be priced to include one digital pattern and the yarn you selected. Shipping price is not included.  And, since it is our anniversary month, I think we should include more Golden Tickets!

 

PK-GoldenTicket-2016-SAMPLE
This is a pre-order update and will begin shipping July 18th.  The digital pattern will be sent to your email address approximately 48 hours after the Update closes. Should you purchase mulitple Dendros kits, Michelle has graciously offered to help you gift your extra patterns to the recipient(s) of your choice.   Dendros will remain a Plucky exclusive design until December.  If you are new to Plucky, you might find it helpful to view our tutorial on how to shop a Blog update!

9 Years Already?! The Anniversary Update

 PluckyAnniversaryLogo-9th-BLUE

Thursday, June 2, at 8:00 PM, EDT
Sunday, June 5, at 8:00 PM, EDT AND
Monday, June 6, at 12:00 Noon, EDT on the Blog!

 

Nine years?  If I might paraphrase, whoever wrote “Do something you love and you will never work a day in your life” must have had me in mind. From outgrowing my kitchen stove and now in our very own ‘new to us old barn’…. well it’s been a crazy ride is all I can say! We have just finished our second year at the barn, established workable traffic patterns and it finally feels like we are settled in. Now we have the room to add more custom bases, create more colorways, develop Plucky patterns, interact with fabulous designers and warehouse all the fun and funky props that go into the Shindig (Glamping this year!) and traveling marketplaces. Back in the day, we had PODs out in the parking lot and, let me tell you, crawling around, trying to find anything was a real challenge! It goes without saying that if you were looking for those great wire baskets that always travel to shows with us, you can bet your last dollar that they were buried in the very back of a POD!  But, enough history.

June is the month in which we celebrate you!  Without you, these last nine years would not have been filled with such community, creativity, laughing, learning and growth. We have made plans to celebrate your amazing support ALL MONTH LONG!
Those of you who have been on board with us a while, well, you know that we like to go extra festive with an Anniversary update that includes free shippingA N Y W H E R E!!! This is our way of thanking you for your continued support and friendship – to our friends far and wide.

FreeShipping-AnnUpdate

I hope you will flood the Wishlist Thread, in our Ravelry group, with all your special requests. We want to help you find everything you have been waiting for.  And, to make it even more celebratory, we will debut some brand new color ways in the Anniversary Update as well as some of your favorite (and ours) oldies!

Colors available so far:

Quintessential Plucky, Summer Edition Kits

I have the official word… Quintessential Plucky, Summer Edition Kits are a go! This special 9-skein collection will only be available as an Anniversary special in tonight & tomorrow’s update!

Thank you so much for your love of this collection. It really is special to us and we want to keep it special for you, too! We built the collection to work together, to truly summarize what is Plucky and what sums up summer for us when we think of Plucky colors. This kit may come out to play again but it was meant to be and will remain a special collection for special occasions, and we hope you enjoy playing with it in your projects.

Just to reiterate, they will only be available as a kit and not as individual skeins. We receive so many requests for blanket kits and shawl kits for various patterns that this will be perfect for implementing! Use the kit in its entirety in one large project or in multiple combinations for various projects. Every color was designed to work with any of the others in the collection – you can’t go wrong with this set in your hands!

This Anniversary update will happen over three days on the Plucky Blog and at three time points!  We want to be sure that no matter where you live, you will be able to find a day and time that works for you. So, please join us for a THREE part update on the blog – Thursday, June 2, at 8:00 PM, EDT; Sunday, June 5, at 8:00 PM, EDT; and again on Monday, June 6, at12:00 Noon, EDT!  This update will be a pre-order update, and the list of colors and bases will be HUGE.  We have already begun tracking the wish list thread, listening to your requests and ideas.  Over the next few days, we will incorporate as many of those wishes as we can into the final list.  It has been great fun to read your posts and some of you even took the time to weigh in on some great wishes that were in addition to color and base.  Way to think outside the box. You have been heard!

 

PK-GoldenTicket-2016-SAMPLE
Golden Tickets?  YES!  They were so much fun last year that it just seemed like a good idea to print more. Lots more! We have fine-tuned the tickets this year and details will be printed directly on the tickets and we’ll post them on our blog and Ravelry as well. We will randomly be packing dozens and dozens (and dozens!) of tickets that will be redeemed for prizes! You might find a ticket for a sweater quantity of yarn, a color kit, a Plucky swag item, a ticket to place an order for Plucky any old time you feel like it (again, full details to be featured on the ticket and at the blog!), and many other prizes. Some of the Golden Ticket prizes will even be included with your anniversary update order! No need to redeem… your prize just magically appears in your shipment.  This year too, they’ll be readily visible and no hunting behind the labels to see if you’ve won – you will know upon opening your shipment!
AnniversaryUpdate-KitButtons-Mystery

The full list of colorways (so far) and bases available can be found here and please join us in theUpdate Chatter thread in the Plucky group where we will be chatting away. But, after all these years, there is still one thing that has never changed – our commitment to you, and our commitment to the best possible fibers and colorways, so that your craft can be unique, personal and always classic with a twist. You are a source of inspiration and creativity, and words truly can’t express our appreciation. What an exciting journey this has been and continues to be…. and there’s more to come!

Warmly,

Plucky Fellas Club

PluckyFellas-2016-CLUB-LOGO

 

It’s time for the next installment of the Plucky Fellas Club!

All the Plucky Fellas colors are fella/guy/tomboy inspired, perfect for socks, sweaters or accessories we neutral loving guys and gals just love to wear.

~What will you find? Loads of neutrals with a kick, all on your choice of base(s) available below. And, we always spice it up a bit with a few special colors that will help the Fellas sing!

~This time, however – since we usually say “you’re not invited” to what some might consider more girly colors – we are going to add a few of our favorite lights and brights, as well as three colorways of our new Small Batch collection to accent the Fellas existing colorways, AND the new Fellas mystery colorway!

~If a Small Batch color is on your ‘must’ list, you will be able to order it as a single skein in your chosen amount. We have built a collage for each so that you can see the colors that we think pair beautifully with each. All the colorways shown will be sold as individual skeins.

All colorways available in this update are shown in the collages below:

Warmly,

Plucky Classics, A Yarn Club

It’s Sign-Up Time!

A Brand New Plucky Classics

This time it’s different!

Sign-ups begin Thursday, May 5 at 9:00 a.m. EDT, right here on the Plucky Blog
We are super excited to open up the Plucky Classics subscription program for another round. We want to give everyone a chance to sign-up for something new, add to their existing subscription, or give the Classics program a whirl for the very first time!

It’s an exciting round to join as we’re changing up Classics, in a VERY big way!

Although we are saying farewell to Sweater from the line-up, we’re bringing in Crew, Oxford (original), Rustic, Scholar (original), SNUG (bulky), Sophisticate, AND Traveler (sport).  Phew!!  We’ve never had this big of a shake-up to Classics and we hope you are as excited about it as we are!

There may be months where we choose to draw from the same inspiration, but an entirely different colorway specifically for the bases of Crew, Oxford, Scholar, and Traveler. These four bases due to their unique fiber content/properties, take the dye differently than the others but you can be assured we’ll choose a colorway that make their uniqueness positively sing. And they will be inspired by the same ‘Classic’.

For those who aren’t really sure why we call it Classics, let me give you a little background. Hayley and I love old movies. The Classics. Or, at least those that we consider to be classics! Our idea of a perfect evening is to slip an old movie into the DVD player, make some popcorn, sit back with our knitting and lose ourselves in a movie. But, it’s not just the oldies that we consider Classics. Who doesn’t love a cheezy 80’s or a 90’s disaster movie?  Our tastes are eclectic, to say the least.  And, it’s from our personal list of classic movies that we draw our inspiration for the Classics subscription colors. Won’t you watch and knit with us?

Here is how the Plucky Classics subscription works:

If you are already a Classics subscriber, and you don’t want to change a thing with your current selection, you are golden and don’t need to do a thing! Your subscription will continue on in the same manner.

  1. Sign-ups go live Thursday, May 5 at 9:00 a.m. EDT on the Plucky Blog and will remain open as long as spots remain available.
  2. Upon enrollment (the date you subscribe, beginning Thursday, May 5), you will have the payment for your yarn deducted from your Paypal account. Subsequent payments will continue to be deducted, on the same date every other month, until you cancel your subscription.
  3. At the end of every month following the deduction (June), your Classics order will be shipped to you. You will continue to receive yarn, every other month, until you cancel your subscription (June, August, October and so on).
  4. The base and quantity you choose will be your subscription until you (or we) cancel your subscription. You may cancel your subscription at any time.
  5. Bases available are: Primo Aran, Primo Fingering, Primo Sport, Primo Worsted, Bello, Bello Worsted, Single, Feet, Trusty, SNUG Worsted, SNUG Fingering, SNUG (bulky), Crew, Oxford (original), Rustic, Scholar (original), Sophisticate, Traveler (sport) and Plucky Cashmere and Cachet! A quick run-down of yarn details can be found on our website here.
  6. The Classics color each month is a surprise colorway and may be the same across all bases.There may be months where we choose to draw from the same inspiration, but an entirely different colorway specifically for the bases of Crew, Oxford, Scholar, and Traveler! These four bases due to their unique fiber content/properties, take the dye differently than the others but you can be assured we’ll choose a colorway that make their uniqueness positively sing.
  7. If you would like a subscription for more than one base, you will need to make an additional subscription.
  8. Pricing, including shipping costs can be viewed here.  Please be sure to choose the appropriate selection (U.S. or International) based on your shipping address.

Plucky Classics is a great (and fun!) way to ensure you get a regular dose of Plucky yarn, especially if you find it difficult to make the updates (time zones, work schedules, etc.). Sign-up and yarn will magically appear in your mailbox every other month. Easy Peasy!

Please note: multiple orders will be combined for shipping, domestic and international.
Values for customs documents will be completed in accordance with the pricing shown on your PayPal receipt (i.e. One skein Primo Worsted shipped internationally will reflect a value of $33.00, etc. for customs). Again, thank you!

If you are new to Plucky we invite you to read all about our Blog Updates in the FAQs found HERE. Also, be sure to sign up for our eNewsletter and go to our Plucky Knitter app so you are always up-to-date on events and news.

 

Warmly,

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.
ReadyToShip-050116-Sign

**An important note!:  Since all of the yarn available in Tuesday’s update (and all other subsequent RTS or IG updates) has been carefully inventoried and dyed, we will no longer be able to accommodate requests for cancellations or changes of orders.  Please be 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.The update will ship on Monday, May 9th. Thank you for your understanding!

Sophisticated Traveler – KIT UPDATE

SophisticatedTraveler-PROMO

I am so excited about Cassie Munksgard’s newest design, the Sophisticated Traveler Shawl, and to be able to offer it in kit form as a Plucky exclusive! You might know Cassie as Firedancer41dmb, on Ravelry and in the The Plucky Knitters group. Cassie brings us a shawl that is the perfect shoulder season wrap. The time of year when the air is still a bit chilly, yet there is the risk of encountering unexpected air conditioning, is fast approaching! You will want to be ready for it all with at least one Sophisticated Traveler. The generous size of this shawl allows you to wear it in a variety of ways, wrapped around you for warmth or casually tossed over your shoulders for the perfect accessory.

 

SophisticatedTraveler-Pattern-Collage-2

 

Though generous in size, this shawl is so light and airy and is written with two options for mixing bases (#mixthosebases)!  Using two different weights and fibers, each knit separately in some sections and then held together in others, gives you three different textures throughout the shawl. The pink version shown above was knit in Traveler Sport and Sophisticate in the colorway, Bellini. The different fiber content of the two bases lends itself perfectly to a subtle, tonal color change as well!  This is the perfect opportunity to dip your toes into mixing those bases. Cassie and Plucky have taken the guesswork out of what to mix together for you!

 

SophisticateTraveler-Splendor_2532

 

Shown in Splendor, this sample was knit with three skeins of Cashmere and one skein of Sophisticate.  You may have spied it in my pic on my own travels just a few weeks ago!  The grey version mixed two skeins of Oxford 2.0 in Brume with one skein of Plucky Lace.  We’ve put together some incredible possibilities for mixing your favorite Plucky sport weight with Sophisticate or your favorite Plucky fingering weight with Lace!

 

SophisticateTraveler-Brume_2531

Please join us on the Plucky Blog, Friday, April 15th, at 12:00 noon, EDT.  You will find an option to choose either the sport/sophisticate version or the fingering/lace combo.  Once you choose the base, you will find drop down menus to choose your color combination. Each combo will be a tonal selection with the exception of mystery kits.  So, if you choose Campari in the Cashmere/Sophisticate combo, you’ll receive 3 skeins of Cashmere and 1 skein of Sophisticate each in the colorway Campari.  If you’re an adventurous traveler however, perhaps one of our mystery kits may be an option for you?  The mystery kits may be tonal OR the bases may be contrasting colorways Hayley and I think will be perfect for playing together in this pattern.  If you’d like a tonal or contrasting mystery kit, there will be a button for each. As always, you can leave us a note in PayPal prior to check-out if you have a preference for colors or bases.  We’ll do our best to accommodate your request!

Let the planning begin with a few collages of the colorways that Hayley and I think will be positively smashing as Sophisticated Travelers!

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.

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.

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!

Plucky Reserve – A NEW Way to Shop Plucky Yarn

______________

  PRESENTING…

PLUCKY RESERVE

______________

We are so excited to announce something new here at Plucky! Beginning this Friday, February 5th, 2016 we present to you Plucky Reserve. We have listened to you and so appreciate your feedback. For some time now, we have diligently been working behind the scenes to provide a new way to have Plucky available…another buying style that expands the availability for our diverse customer base. One of our greatest priorities has been to find a way to reach those of you who might find the blog updates inconvenient or Etsy sales a little too invigorating. And, to all of you…sometimes you just want a skein of insert your favorite base or color here. All these things have led us to the addition of our new shop – Plucky Reserve!

Part of the fun of Plucky Reserve is that it will be ever-changing! The quantities, bases, and colorways available will be ever changing – you never know what hidden gems you may find in the shop!

Within the Plucky Reserve shop, you will be able to see the bases, the colors and the number of skeins available. We will restock the shop as inventory permits and our hope is that you will check back often to see what we have posted. Who knows what surprises you’ll find!

The offering will be similar (though not exactly) to the way in which Plucky Swag is offered in the Plucky website. We are now ready to build upon that shopping experience with the addition of a constantly changing selection of yarns.

So, let’s say it’s sometime Friday, Saturday, etc., and you are in your pajamas watching the Late Late Show. Just out of curiosity you decide to take a little peek into the Plucky Reserve shop. And, well lookie there! Three skeins of High Cotton on Sweater in stock, and that is exactly what you have been looking for! Woohoo! Or, you might be new to Plucky yarns and be delighted to quietly purchase a lone skein on a base you have been thinking about trying. Here is that opportunity!

A few important items to keep in mind…

Plucky Reserve will not replace our pre-order blog updates, Classics, other clubs or even RTS (Ready To Ship) updates – it’s just a new way to shop! These updates are still the best way to get exactly what you want! We absolutely love to custom dye just for you in the quantities you need – for those projects you’ve had in mind and to make sure you have the quantity, colorway, and base your heart desires for that perfect Plucky project!

Plucky Reserve was designed with you in mind! It is the perfect opportunity for those new to Plucky who may find the blog updates a bit confusing or the fast paced Etsy Instant Gratification updates intimidating at first. It’s also for those that want to try a new base before committing to a sweater quantity, or need a quick skein (or several) to whip up a hat or give as a gifts.

Plucky Reserve yarns are not OHW’s (one hit wonders). These are all the same Plucky yarns and colors you are accustomed to.

• While it does not happen often and although there may be multiple skeins and even some sweater quantities in the same color and base, there could be slight variations due to the skeins being dyed at different times. Should you order multiples of a colorway on the same base, and there are matching skeins available, we will always do our best to send you the best matches available.

• Shipping of your Plucky Reserve yarn will be within (4) business days after placing your order. The shipping rates that you are accustomed to during our regular updates will apply.

• Due to careful inventory procedures, we will not be able to change or cancel an order once it has been placed.

• Quantities are limited and will change frequently, but you’ll be able to see precisely what is available at that particular moment. Be sure to check back often!

• Please note: There are no guarantees regarding predictability, availability, quantity, or restocking frequency. You can be sure, however, we will keep the Reserve stocked the best we can. Also, there will be no advance notice, and sales will be limited to stock on hand. And, this is exciting(!!), there may be one-of-a-kind or seasonal items in the shop as time allows.

• As with all things new, there may be a couple of hiccups along the way. Thank you for joining us as we venture into this new shopping experience. Please bear with us as we work out any kinks that may come up along the way!

We are so excited to bring you another way to experience Plucky!

As always, we are happy to help you! If you have any questions, please reference our FAQ or email us at customer service and we will do our best to serve you.

All Your Favs Update

AllYourFavsUpdate-logo

Did you experience some wacky weather last week? Or maybe you totally dodged the weather bullet?  Regardless, we hope you were able to find some relaxing time to think, plot and plan for some deep winter knitting (or to dream about spring projects!). Maybe you’ve been searching for patterns and scrolling through the Plucky app, looking for just the right combination of texture and colors. Did your favorites list and your queue grow more than just a little bit? Speaking of favorites, thank you so much for your thread in the Ravelry group noting your top Plucky favorites! We’ve loved reading what old and new colorways comprise your Top 10. So much so, that this update is for you and promises to include some old and new favorite Plucky colorways of all time

 

AllYourFavs-Collage-FINAL-NL

In case you haven’t quite decided what to cast on next, may we offer some of our latest favorites as possibilities for your consideration?

AllYourFavs-Buccanner-Collage

First up, Buccaneer. This one has quickly jumped to the top of my favorites – to knit and to wear! There are so many color combinations to be had here…And, if you haven’t considered it yet, Hayley says The Knitter’s Dude “is the most fantastic pattern!” You can check hers out in the Plucky App as an Ox Mystery Match. It’s simply beautiful and Scholar works SO well for this design. Trelly Hernandez released A Plucky Penny hat this week that would be so fun to #mixthosebases for an accessory big on color and texture!

Dude HMS

A few other favorites I don’t want you to miss: Nordic Wind (I think I need one in Snug Worsted now, too! Or maybe a mix of bases…hmm), Warm Sheep (mine is so cozy and warm), andThaliah (a perfectly relaxing yet engaging knit).

Here’s the list of bases you can expect to see so far!:

Bello
Crew
Feet
Lodge Fingering
Lodge Worsted
Primo fingering
Primo Sport
Rustic
Scholar
Scholar 2.0
Single
Snug Fingering
Snug Worsted
Traveler

This Update will be split into two parts. Please join us on Sunday, January 31st at 8:00 PM EST and again on Monday, February 1st  at 9:00 AM EST. We have a great list of bases and I am very happy to report that Bello and Single are back! They will all be available, as well our brand new base, Lodge, in both fingering and worsted weight. Lodge joins Crew as a perfect year round, all seasons blend!

Keep an eye on the Update chatter thread as Hayley and I put together color combos for Buccaneer and do our best to help you find the perfect color selection for you from this update. And, as we always do, we will be watching the Wishlist thread to help us round out the final colorways to be offered. The final list of colorways and bases will be posted in the locked Update News and Announcement thread.

It’s Spiffy! It’s Dandy! And It’s Ready-To-Ship!

SpiffyDandyLodge-Bases-3-edit-blog

Hello there!

And, we’re ready! After many, many months in development, we are very excited to share fournew bases with you. Three of these bases will be limited edition (sort of a test run) and the fourth is going to be more readily available. It is always a fun (and more than a little bit nerve wracking!) process that involves a whole lot of “back to the drawing board” moments between the mill and two very picky dyers/test knitters…Hayley and me! Happily, after months and months of work, we are ready to share with you four new bases that take the dye beautifully and just as importantly, create a fabric that we love! Our hope is that you will love them too.

Our first newbie of the year is Spiffy! 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 unbelievably 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.

Dandy is a very special blend of 58% baby suri alpaca, 14% cashmere, 14% merino and 14% nylon, all blown into a hollow core. This gives it the appearance of a single ply yarn and a fabric that glows! It will give a new dimension to bulky knits, offering a bit of sheen to the normally matte look of Plucky Bulky and Plucky Snug. As cold as this week has been, I am all for a lighter than air bulky knit that has a  little extra ‘fluff’ to it. And, dare I say, it’s sort of a ‘dressy’ bulky yarn? Yes, I think I will say that!

And now, for something super fun, a little funky and, I think, really fabulous. Our third new limited edition base is Loopdeloo! I am almost at a loss for words to describe this to you. It is a 60/25/15 blend of baby suri alpaca and cashmere that is looped in and out of a silk chain! It’s a little thin, then it’s a little plump, and then it gets thin again. It’s crazy! The resulting fabric is textured and just plain fun.  I think this will make a simple pullover sweater into something special. And, for the really adventurous, how about mixing Loopdeloo with another Plucky yarn to make stripes. Now, that would be fun!

Our fourth new base is Lodge, offered in two different weights; a worsted and a fingering yarn! Lodge is a blend of 60% merino, 20% cotton, 10% linen and 10% silk, making it an easy choice for all climates. Whether it’s a bit more moderate where you live (that is definitely not Michigan at the moment!) or you enjoy four separate seasons, Lodge is perfect all year long. Personally, I’m thinking I need a new favorite sweatshirt sweater in the worsted weight, layered over a flannel shirt…and maybe a matching pair of Lodge fingering weight socks and mitts and a hat, for sure!

Please join us on Friday, January 22nd at 12:00 P.M. EST on the blog for our New Bases update!

This update will feature all of the new bases and is Ready-To-Ship! At this time, we have a limited supply of Spiffy, Dandy and Loopdeloo and have not yet decided if we will keep them in regular rotation or hold them as occasional guests. Lodge will be making more regular appearances. We have put together a list of colors that just sing on the new bases.

Colorways available:

For The Love Of Scum

SCUMMY-Logo

There’s nothing like a brand new CLUB to launch a brand new year!

I know it’s hard to believe, but there might be a few people out there who think we are all talking about a thin layer of pond algae when we profess our love for scum. But, no way, not us. We are talking about those warm, earthy colors that only nature could suggest. These colors are the moss that grow on the shady side of trees and the mushrooms that smell of the earth. Scummy colors happen when you take any color and bring it into the dusky afternoon of a forest, shaded from the brightest lights.

Which side of the coin best describes you? Are you like Hayley who absolutely glows when wearing colors like Fiona, Triple Crown, Joe Banks or Ogre right up against her face? Or are you more like me who needs to place a cooler buffer between your face and the scum’s? While Hayley looks terrific wearing something knit entirely in warm, earthy colors, I use those same colors as the accent to help my brighter, cooler and neutral colors pop.

ScummyLove-Collage-2-AScummyLove-Collage-2-BScummyLove-Collage-2-C

Please join us on Friday morning, January 8th at 9:00 am EST and again on Sunday evening, January 10th at 8:00 pm EST, as we launch our For The Love of Scum club. We will be featuring a brand new scummy mystery color that promises to be gorgeous as a stand-alone color or paired with a multitude of other Plucky colors. In addition to the mystery color, we will include lots of your favorite scummy colors and a great selection of brights and neutrals that play beautifully with their scummy color friends. A note about the Scum club…please don’t expect just versions of greens or yellows with this club – these colors come in many varieties and hues of all sorts!

The above collage and the list of bases below is a taste of what to expect for this update, but remember; the lists aren’t finished just yet! As always, we invite you to post your wishes in our Wishlist thread and be sure to keep an eye on the Update News & Announcement thread in our Ravelry Group.  Hayley and I will be posting some of our favorite mixes and combos, all focusing on scummy colors. This is also where you will find the final listings of colors and bases that will be offered in this For The Love Of Scum club update.

FAVORITES OF 2015 – Our last pre-order update of the year!

Over the years, hearing the silky voice of radio dj’s (Casey Kasem, Dick Clark, Rick Dees, etc.) as they took us on a musical journey to review the year’s Top 40 Hits always seemed the perfect way to close out a year. Hearing all of the favorites we might have forgotten about as the months brought in new releases and with that, new favorites, it was great to be reminded of a few that may have dropped off the radar!

With that in mind, we thought it would be fun to look back and see what your favorites (and ours!) and some of your most requested colorways were in 2015. This will help us put together a rocking “playlist” for our “Goodbye, 2015!” and countdown to 2016 party!  It’s the last update of the year, you guys!  It’s a little bittersweet so let’s have some fun! So, what was your favorite colorway of 2015?

This Blog Update is going to be full of your most requested colors and bases – your favorites, our favorites – and will include some of the new favorites, like Grumpy Old Sailor (he sure made an impression on all of us)! Who remembers buying a 45-rpm record (I think there’s an entire generation out there who have never even seen a 45 rpm record!) and finding something interesting on the B side?  Well, our version of the B side will be those colors and bases you post in the Wishlist thread over the next few days.

Here is a sneak peek of the colorways you can expect to see at this last update to send us off into 2016:

Here’s a taste of what to expect for bases in this update, but remember; the lists of favorite colors & bases aren’t finished just yet! Be sure to keep an eye on the Update News & Announcement thread in our Ravelry group as the weekend progresses to find out what other favorites will be added!

Another fun addition to this update will be the option to pre-order NEW Plucky Totes and Project Bags with our new collage graphic on them. You can pick from the Bases Design in grey, or the Colors Design in pink, blue or green!

Sunday, December 20th at 8:00 pm, EST
and Monday, December 21st at 9:00 am, EST at the Plucky Blog
*This Update will include FREE SHIPPING! If your order is domestic, it will ship for free. International transactions of 2 or more skeins within the same transaction will also ship for free. Unfortunately, at this time we will not be able to combine multiple international orders for free shipping. Any single skein international transactions will include shipping costs.

So, what was your personal favorite of 2015? Please help us finalize the list of colors and bases for this (and every) update. Your input in the Wishlist thread is extremely helpful! Can’t recall offhand what you may have seen in the early updates of 2015? Be sure to download the Plucky Knitter app where you will find a huge collection of photos of Plucky colors, listed by name and color family, as well as color pairings that Hayley and I find work particularly well with all of our favorites.

This will be the last pre-order update of 2015, so your purchases will ship according to usual time-frames and will be headed your way the end of the third week in January, 2016. We hope 2015 was kind to you and we thank you so much for your warmth and friendship! As a quick housekeeping note, we will be off-grid (lights out at the barn) and take a bit of down time with family and friends. Although the barn may be dark after we get all the things shipped to you we promised before year-end, you can rest assured that we are plotting an planning a fun and festive 2016!

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! 

If you are new to Plucky we invite you to read all about our Blog Updates in the FAQs found HERE. Also, be sure to sign up for our eNewsletter and go to our Plucky Knitter app so you are always up-to-date on events and news.
