Plucky, Plucky, Plucky (The Plucky Knitter, That Is)


Six months or so I stumbled across a yarn brand I had never head of before, The Plucky Knitter.  The colors looked intriguing, the prices looked high.  But, as I kept seeing mention of this yarn in patterns I was looking at or projects I came across, I started to read more.

The dyer was experienced and reliable.  She had developed such a following over time that she was having yarns custom milled for her.  And the yarns themselves were wonderful blends — merino and cashmere, merino and silk, and a few with yak or other wonderous fibers mixed in.


And, then, of course, I shopped.

The yarn is sold in a clever way, through blog updates that center around color, fiber, new pattern, and other themes.  There is a bit of a carnival atmosphere and it's almost as fun to shop as it is to open the boxes when they arrive!


I'm planning to knit a shawl in one of the yarns I've just received as my first Plucky project.  But I can tell just from looking and fondling this yarn that I'm hooked.

  1. Sounds fun. See…this is another reason why your blog is so great. I get your email updates and it helps me stay in the loop of what’s awesome out there these days. With 5 little boys (3 homeschooling), I just don’t have time to wander around online like I used to and I’m so out of the loop on what is out there for knitters anymore. This yarn looks beautiful! How often do these blog events happen? And is it crazy like the old days at hyena cart where you had to sit there refreshing your page with your finger on a BIN button in hopes that you might be the first to refresh and snag the item? This looks like something that I might want to request Christmas money to get something for myself this year.

  2. I think one reason I like it so much is it has a bit of a feeling of the hyena cart frenzy, and I have such mad stalking skills from those days that I always seem to get what I’m after!
    Good luck with the little guys. Amazing how one day you can barely find time to brush your teeth between teaching kids to tie their shoes and read and the next thing you know, you’re discussing law school and college choices with them, and finding you actually have time on your hands to knit again!
