Katherine the Great
I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

Hi, my name is Katie and I’m addicted to Plucky Knitter yarn. After joining the Plucky group on ravelry, it turns out I have a less serious problem then some folks, so…. I should get more.

Plucky Knitter Stash

The Husband is my favorite enabler and I got Plucky yarn for our anniversary again this year…just in time for Plucktember, that time of year when Plucky fans strategize and knit knit knit with Plucky yarn. There are competitions and random drawings and a good time is had by all. The idea of Plucktember lining up with a September Hunter Hammersen Polyommatus corydon KAL inspired me to buy some chocolate colored sport-weight yarn and knit up this beauty.

Yarn: Chocolate Crinkle Plucky Knitter Primo Sport (75% Wool, 20% Cashmere, 5% Nylon)

Primo feels great whilst knitting and against my face. Happy Plucktember!

  2. How pretty! I just bought my first Plucky Knitter and am already knitting it. I’m hoping I will finish in time to call it a Plucktember knit.
