My First Post


I have been a regular lurker on other blogs for over a year now and am finally going to start my own. Perhaps I have something of interest to share, perhaps not.... we will just have to see...

Coming up with a name, that's tough. However, I have been referred to as plucky (among other names). According the Websters Dictionary it means "spirited or brave" - so there you have it.... The Plucky Knitter it is!



Right now I am obsessed with hand warmers and neck warmers (Feather and Fan neck warmer from Knit 2 Together by Mel Clark and Tracey Ullman. I have made six of these - they make fabulous gifts. This one is knit in Jemima Cashmere from Dee at Posh Yarn in the UK - I love Dee's yarn!!! Seriously, if you have not visited Dee you MUST go to her site today! She is having a sale on Sunday and let me tell you, it goes fast and is so worth it).

Then next on the list is socks. I shudder to think how much has been spent on Koigu , Sweet Georgia Yarn, Yarn Pirate sock yarn~ the list goes on) in the last couple weeks. But, that is another story all together....

Then there is all the knitting for babies. I just love the look on the parents face when they see you have put so much care into making something for their new little one... and you just have to love the speed of knitting baby items. Talk about instant gratification! (The sweater shown in the Baby Kimono Sweater from Mason Dixon Knitting and the hat is from Last Minute Knitted gifts - Rowan All Seasons Cotton). Many more hats to come, especially since I just received Itty Bitty Baby Hats by Susan B. Anderson - such fun!

The Posh Yarn colorway is Twilight. Just too pretty, if there is such a thing.
