We may be elbow deep in packing boxes and chaos, but today is a very special day for us. This marks our seventh anniversary as The Plucky Knitter.
Back in June of 2007 when I sold that first skein of yarn, I never imagined that it would snowball into the creative and exciting business that Plucky is today. So much has changed along the way, but the one thing that will never change is my steadfast, unending commitment to serving you. I’m honored, humbled and thrilled that you share my passion for unique, luxurious, high quality bases and hand dyed color. You inspire me (us!) and I am in awe of your talent and devotion to our craft and the works of wearable art you create with Plucky. I never take for granted the energy, time and passion that you (we) all give to our art form.
So let’s have a party! Not a party to celebrate us, but to celebrate you – our Plucky pals! You are more than customers. You are our friends. Your friendship and acceptance of our ideas, vision and creative work are what has taken Plucky all the way from dyeing in my tiny kitchen to well, here ….. just getting settled into our ‘new to us but still crusty, old and lacking in charm, but we’re getting there’ barn. Hayley and I want to thank you for opening your hearts and joining us on this incredible journey – the whole crew thanks you!
Now, how about some fun prizes? Of course there will some SQs in awesome bases, Plucky tee’s and sweatshirts but would anybody like to win a Plucky tote or a clutch? And, just for fun, I going to part with that fantastically fun basket of my swatch yarns!
OK. Here is our fun anniversary contest……tell us how you spent the summer when you were seven years old. Did you have an adventure at camp? Did your family take an interesting trip? Did you spend every glorious day in a tree house with your best friend? I am going to start a “My seven-year-old summer” thread in Ravelery for you to post your stories. Or, go the blog and post in the comments section. You can also post on our Facebook page. Then we will pick our favorite summertime tales and award prizes to those that tickle our funny bone or tug at our hearts. Let us hear from you!
Comments will be open until Thursday at Noon Eastern.
