Hello and a very happy and sunny Saturday to one and all!
I can scarcely believe that August is well underway. Time flies when you’re having fun! And boy, have we been up to some fun! We have some incredible projects for you to shop for including (but of course not limited to!) a revamp of a classic sweater, a new pattern that quickly became a smashing hit and don’t forget Plucktember (here’s another chance for you to grab an exclusive tote bag)!
Join us tomorrow, Sunday, August 11th, at 8:00 p.m. EDT, here on the Plucky blog for a pre-order update! All orders will begin to ship in accordance with our pre-order shipping policy on September 6th. We’ll have an incredible assortment of bases and colorways available for you to choose from, so start planning your fall knitting projects now! Here are a few ideas to get you started (just in case you need a few more for your queue):
Revamp of a Classic
Remember Thea’s Cassis? The perfect, casual, go-to of a cardigan for those late summer evenings when the cicadas get louder and the weather turns cooler. Here we have Cassis, Part II knit up in Primo ARAN (which means it will practically fly off the needles!). This time with long sleeves and a shorter body. Pick your favorite Plucky colorway and plan to knit that cardigan that goes everywhere with you this Fall.
Thea’s pattern is available for purchase in Ravelry. Colorway shown is Oatmeal on Plucky Knitter Primo Aran.
Did you miss out on Ann Weaver’s kit for the incredibly popular Monomania sweater? Just can’t wait for the release of the pattern to cast on from your already carefully chosen colorways from your Plucky stash? Here is your chance to purchase the pattern and put together your very own kit!
The pattern will be for sale as a stand-alone item during the update tomorrow evening. Please refer back to the last kit offering for inspiration ideas and also chat away in the color description thread or the Monomania chatter thread in the Plucky group. Ann stands ready to help put kits together with the offerings available in Sunday’s update. You may remember that the original kits were offered in Plucky Feet but just imagine the possibilities in Primo Fingering and oh, dare we say…Bello? Or, mix it up! Our fingering weight base really do play so well together.
Please note: While not all colorways from the last kit offering will be available in Sunday’s update you can get really close and/or be inspired to try something new!
Plucktember – It’s less than a month away!
Here’s your chance to order an exclusive Plucktember tote bag. These were so well received in our last update and we want to be sure that everyone who wants one has an opportunity to get one! We’ll have a button on the blog update for you to make sure you get yours.
So, what’s going to be available tomorrow? We wondered when you were going to ask! The list of colorways is a pretty impressive one with 50+ colorway options at last count, including 11 brand-spanking new ones all available on the following bases:
Primo (Fingering, Sport, Worsted, & yay! Aran is back!)
Traveler (Sport and Aran)
Thank you so very much and have a fantastic weekend!
