Another FREE Casapinka Shawl (and Kits)
For anyone who swooped a lovely shawl set and free pattern for LYS Day in late April (as well as for those that may have missed out) the designer Casapinka is at it again, offering a free shawl pattern with purchase of sets, and I have paired it with another of our spring showcase yarns: this time the spectacular Earl Grey Fiber Company which we just celebrated with a Canadian launch earlier this week!
The Casapinka kitty, Sharon from HR, is at it again this time with the Hug Shot, a celebration to hug your kitty/dog/loved one this weekend. Check out this gorgeous bright version knit by the designer:
Although I don’t have as bright of an option as this sample shawl, the Earl Grey Darjeeling Sock is a crisp-twist 75merino/25nylon base with a depth of classic, almost antique-finished colourways that would make a gorgeous Hug Shot!
Here are four colour pairings that I would suggest putting together to give this stripey shawl the mellow, almost blended definition that the designer intended:
Casapinka has offered to support LYS (local yarn stores)’s efforts to keep the fibre community thriving by giving each store free codes this weekend to gift customers free with purchase. As such, we will gift a FREE copy of Casapinka‘s Hug Shot shawl pattern to anyone who purchases any two 100g fingering or sock weight skeins TODAY or TOMORROW by emailing a coupon code which can be redeemed up to midnight Pacific time on Sunday (June 14th).
And to further encourage anyone to try out our newest launched spring yarn we will offer 10% off ALL FINGERING WEIGHT yarn for today and tomorrow only with coupon code HUGSHOT. You do not have to pair up the above colourways, but if you want to make a kit up the Blues, Red, Rust or Neutrals paired above you just need ONE of each of the two mentioned colourways in italics above in the Darjeeling base!
We have had a casual knit-along for Casapinka’s Breathe and Hope shawl in our Baaad Anna’s Ravelry page, and I will open it up to anyone who wants to join in for the Hug Shot shawl as well. I will pop in randomly over the next few months with prizes! I have just finished my own version of the Breathe and Hope shawl and hope to add the Hug Shot shawl onto my needles sometime soon. In the meantime, feel free to show off your yarn combos that you plan to use!
