Welcome to Plucktober 2018 — a month long celebration of all things Plucky — the yarn, the patterns, the camaraderie, the knitting, the FUN!
And….. hold on to your hats you guys because this year we are beyond thrilled to be kicking off the festivities with a special in-person shopping event! That’s right, the Plucky H2 Shop will be open on Saturday, September 29th from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm EDT for shopping, a sit-n-knit, and tutorial demonstrations.
This year we will have six new patterns designed specifically for Plucktober. With a fabulous mix of hats, mitts, shawls/wraps, plus a new sweater, there’s a little something for one and all! Plus, the announcement of the second sweater in the #upyoursweatergame series! There will be special Knit-a-longs (KAL’s) for all of these patterns.
We will also have general Stitch-a-longs (SAL’s), where you can knit (or crochet or machine knit) any pattern you’d like. Our categories this year will be:
• Accessories (hats, mitts, cowls, scarves, shawls, socks)
• Baby/Kids/Home/Living (baby or children’s garments, blankets, decorative items)
• Machine knitting
• Finish Those WIPs
Q: When does Plucktober start and end?
A: Plucktober runs September 29th – October 31st . Cast on for all KAL’s/SAL’s begins September 29th, at 10:00 AM EDT (official kick-off at H2 Pop-Up) and ends October 31st at 11:59 PM (your time zone).
Q: How do I participate in the SAL’s?
A: Each individual KAL/SAL will have its own (stickied) discussion thread, in our Ravelry Group, with rules posted at the top. When you have finished your project, post pictures of your finished objects on Instagram with the hashtag #plucktober2018, or tag your project on Ravelry with plucktober2018. Prizes will be given out for each category. Only FO’s (finished objects) that are 100% in Plucky yarn will be eligible.
Be sure to stay up-to-date on all announcements for Plucktober and the Pop-Up over on the official Ravelry thread, PLUCKTOBER 2018 OFFICIAL THREAD.
This is going to be great fun, we hope you’ll join us!
