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

Some Plucky Knitter yarn came in the mail just in time to convince me that I didn’t REALLY need anything this month when she did updates. It was a near thing, I can tell you. But, to stave off my yarn spending (for now), let us reflect on these new puppies.

Singin' the Blues
I’m going to make these Scoundrel socks with this lovely blue. The pattern, by Hunter Hammersen, will be out this fall.

Wintry Mix
I don’t know what this Wintry Mix Primo Fingering will grow up to be, but I sure do like the cut of its jib. The funny thing is that when these beauties came in the mail, I was a little disappointed. The colors looked a little flat, you see. Then, I took them out of the plastic packaging and ohhhhhh. False alarm. They are gorgeous.

Speaking of Plucky Knitter, I’ve just started knitting Linaria Bipartita Socks – pattern by Hunter Hammersen (try to act surprised) in Plucky Knitter’s Primo Fingering – colorway Elegant Elephant on my super pointy Sig. Arts needles. Ain’t life grand?!?

Ps. To see what other folks are working on, go check out Tami’s Amis and Small Things Yarn Along (I just finished reading Vampire Academy on my Nook – it was a bit slow for me. I have yet to decide if I’ll read the next one to see what happens or just Google a summary and call it good.).

The Husband and I celebrated twelve years of wedded bliss in August. He bought me yarn. That is to say that I used the Pay Pal account to buy myself some delicious Plucky Knitter yarn during a couple of her sales and mentioned it in passing to The Husband. I could not believe how fast their stuff sells out!…until it arrived in the mail and then understanding dawned. Gorgeous!

From left, may I introduce: Elegant Elephant, Flying Atlas, Oz, and Barn Door Primo Fingering along with Peep Toes Primo Sport ( Primo = merino, cashmere, nylon). Silk and linen are the traditional materials for 12 years. Close enough!

The Husband has a hard time keeping up with which yarn and pattern shops I purchase from, so I get questions like “Who is Violently Dom?”. That’s what Hunter Hammersen’s patterns and books show up as and it stumps him every time. This time, the question was, “Who is Plucky Knitter and why do they have all my money?” I just grinned and said, “That’s the yarn you bought me for our anniversary.” Ain’t love grand?!
Ps. Plucky Knitter has lovely customer service too; the first package arrived with a note letting me know that the Peep Toes would be following shortly.
