I recently became a Plucky Knitter devotee. I stayed away for a long time because the infamous blog updates made me anxious: there's a limited number of skeins, and a million Plucky Knitter fans--they sell out in a manner of minutes, so you better know what you want right away. The Etsy updates are another beast entirely.
But I was eventually successful and ordered my first set of Plucky yarns in September, arriving in October. Plucky Feet is a very tightly-plied yarn, perfect for socks but better for lacy shawls (which is what I have planned!). The fall colors already make me excited for next fall, when I can wear an autumnal Kalimna shawl or Raven's Nest Shawl.
I was able to order in an October update as well, but this time I wanted to try Plucky Single, a merino/silk fingering-weight blend. Again--it will make beautiful shawls! (A twenty-first century woman can never have enough shawls.) I know I want to make an Ooh La Lace shawlette from the French Laundry skein, of course, but I'm going to wait to decide on the others. They're all so beautiful and I haven't worked with silk. I'm excited to see how that blocks out.
I ordered a gradient set in the update last week and have a few things planned for that: a striped shawl, a gradient Ashburn. The colors are so vibrant and unique, I can't say no. The worst part is waiting for the yarn to arrive.
