New Project

Casapinka has a new pattern. We have Ravelry codes for the pattern if you purchase the yarn to make Noncho. The yarn purchase must be made between now and Sunday evening - May 2 - before 8pm EST to make sure I have enough time to email you the code.

When you make your purchase online please leave a comment in the notes that you are making Noncho. We will email you a code to download the pattern. 

From Casapinka

This DK pattern is in lieu of a Casapinka LYS Day pattern since many LYS’ weren’t aware (and I wasn’t in time) of LYS Day this year. It is instead a celebration of National Bubble Tea Day, April 30!

How it works 
When you buy yarn to make Noncho from an LYS on through Saturday, May 1, you will receive an individual code from the LYS (not from me - please don’t email me!) to redeem. It MUST BE REDEEMED by Sunday night 11:59 Pacific Daylight time when it expires. Codes will not be activated until April 30 at 8am EDT.

Please support your LYS’ and spread the word!! It will also be for individual sale and a fingering weight version will also be available but the yarn amounts are not yet determined (the fingering weight one was an afterthought and is finishing up in testing.)

Note - all sizes are 17” long (See schematic.) If you think you would like it longer, buy more yarn and just continue with the same increases.

You can see the yardages for the pattern on Ravelry. These are for DK weight yarn. I don’t know the fingering weight yardages yet - keep checking on Ravelry. 

When you place your order, please make sure that your email is correct. If the pattern isn’t downloaded by Sunday May 2 at 11:59 PDT then you will have to purchase it. Casapinka is a stickler for rules - she is giving the pattern for free so we must respect that.

What yarn to use?? You can use a wool like Tosh DK or you could go a summery yarn like Rowan Denim Revive. It just depends on the season you want to knit for. Here is a link to all our DK weight yarns.

My tax return is finished. Two days early. And I get a refund of about $50. 🎉🎉 It’s time for a celebration and right now that means starting a new project. I’m going to cast on Nightshift using the new colours of Dream State. I am also going to knit it on one size larger needle - I have read on Ravelry that a few people have done it and the shawl is a bit bigger.

We have progress on our addition.

Tonight would have been a perfect evening to eat outside - unfortunately we don’t have a table and chairs yet. We’re waiting to purchase these. It’s one of those things that you want to see in person. And you want to sit in the chairs to make sure that they are comfortable.
