"The Secret Life of Cats (and dogz)"

Cost depends on the 4 skeins of fingering yarn you choose to use.  

What FUN!!  Casapinka's latest KAL required 4 skeins of fingering weight yarn. 

The KAL officially ran from Dec. 1 - 25 with the goal of knitting one section per day with a glass of wine or hot apple cider in hand, BUT there are really no deadlines.  The point was to just have FUN!  The project is knit on US 6 needles. This is a rectangular shawl with 25 sections - and also has directions to make it an infinity cowl or a scarf with flared ends.  Beginners are welcome!  

Let us help you put together 4 of your favorite colors for this fun project using Malabrigo Sock, Manos del Uruguay Alegria, Dream in Color Smooshy Sock, or any other fingering weight yarn we have in stock.  We love this creative process!!


Call (573) 443-1299 or hurry in to get yours soon!  This project is a great way to try out and learn new patterns and techniques!

"Little Lulu" Sweater by Casapinka

"Little Lulu" is like a pretty sweatshirt that you knit. This delightful pattern by Casapinka is designed to be worn with 4-8 inches of positive ease so you can wear it with yoga pants or jeans.  "Little Lulu" is knit in the round from the bottom up with the eyelet pattern in front and back. 

Little Lulu is designed to be worn with 4-8” / 10-20.5 cm of positive ease; pick the size that is closest between 4 and 8” / 10 and 20.5 cm larger than your actual bust measurement. If you fall between sizes, it’s best to go down a size. Shown in Size 2 with 6” positive ease.  If you wish to make it longer you will want to buy a bit more yarn. 

We have chosen Rowan "Moordale" DK for you to use for this sweater.  The picture shows me in the "Little Lulu" I made using Moordale in the Beetroot color.  The yarn was great to work with and is so very warm!  I can help you with this sweater if you'd like to make it!  :-)  Vickie

Rowan Moordale DK-weight yarn is a combination of the finest British blueface leicester wool and alpaca, creating a yarn that is gorgeously soft and naturally heathered with a gentle halo to keep you warm and snuggly!  Moordale consists of 70% wool and 30% alpaca, with 251 yd /100 g skein.

"Hug Shot" by Casapinka

The "Hug Shot" assymetric shawl was supposed to be in honor of International Hug Your Pet Weekend (a made up holiday by Sharon – Casapinka's Cat – From Security).  If you don’t know who that is, you might want to walk away now. Things are not always professional, but they are lighthearted. Sharon does, indeed, allow dogs to participate in this holiday weekend.  This is a very straightforward, easy to knit shawl.  I REALLY enjoyed making mine

This shawl requires 2 contrasting skeins of fingering weight yarn, approximately 380 yds of each color.  I chose 2 of my favorite colors – Red & Blue! 

**If you would like for us to help you pick out 2 skeins of yarn for this shawl in Malabrigo Sock or Manos del Uruguay Alegria, give us a call at (573) 443-1299 or come by to see us.  :-)
