Friday & Saturday, January 3rd & 4th
Casapinka, who says “her life is art, and so is yours,” is coming to Fuzzy Goat!
This event has been over a year in the making since we first met Casapinka at Market. She is a design crazed woman who likes pink a little too much and is a fabulous knitwear designer and even more fantastic person.
She is currently taking time off from her job as an ER doctor since they wouldn’t let her use her knitted stethoscope. She takes great pleasure in seeing what people do with her designs. (She’s also fascinated by civil aviation and says she spends too much time knitting and listening to air traffic control – waiting for the minute when TSA lets down its guard and she can yarn decorate (better not say the “b” word) an A340.)

Casapinka has developed a very fun three-hour workshop from her years spent around knitters and in local yarn stores. This workshop is for those who want practical, personal, and simple methods for choosing colors for their knitting projects. There will be no color wheel, no strict rules, but plenty of laughs and demonstrations. We all learn from each other and leave with new techniques that can be put into action immediately. The workshop lasts for two hours and the third hour is used to help people choose yarn colors for any projects they like, which often ends up with knitters helping each other with their new sense of color confidence! Materials: 3 sample-sized (10 yards or more) colors of fingering weight yarn, US 6 needle (or whatever you typically use for shawls.), 4 markers
Mosaic Stitches Workshop
The Another Brick in the Wall Shawl pattern, is an asymmetric, mosaic shawl that is excellent for teaching mosaic knitting. This is a 3 hour workshop where you will be shown different mosaic patterns as well as the one in the Another Brick in the Shawl. You will leave the workshop confident in knitting almost any mosaic pattern that comes your way. You will be shocked at how simple the technique for mosaic knitting is and wonder why you didn’t learn it sooner! Materials: 3 scrap colors of fingering weight yarn (10 yards each – bright, dark, very light color, US 6 needle (or whatever you typically use for shawls.)
Enjoy sips and bits and shop with Casapinka for any pattern you have in mind in this exclusive after-hours event.
