Casapinka Noncho Kits for You

Bronwyn (Casapinka) has done it again – another fun pattern for celebrating Local Yarn Shop Day (but this year, celebrating National Bubble Tea Day!) The Noncho is a fun, cozy knit to wear out on cooler spring days, to pull on in the evenings when you’re feeling a bit chilly, or to cozy up in bed when you’re reading and your shoulders are cold! We have some beautiful Casapinka Noncho Kits ready for you, because you know how we love to play with color combinations around here.

This pattern is free with the purchase of yarn to make it from your local (or online local) yarn shop. The offer is good on yarn purchased today, April 28th, through Saturday evening, May 1, 2021. We will process your order and then will email you a coupon code to get the pattern free on Ravelry.

CaMaRose and Malabrigo Rasta

Happy Monday! Is it Spring where you are? Are you seeing flowers blooming? Because here, we’re getting 6-12 inches of snow tonight. Dear Colorado.

Anyway, we have a new yarn company with two new bases for you today, as well as re-stocks (including, finally, more Rasta!). We just added in:

CaMaRose Yaku 4/16 – This new-to-us yarn comes from Denmark, and we are delighted to add it in here at the shop. Yaku is a 100% Superwash Merino fingering weight, with a soft hand and sturdy ply, giving you wonderful stitch definition. 

CaMaRose Pimabomuld 2/8 – You all have been asking for a fingering weight cotton for a long time, and we were delighted to find this one. These balls come with 219 yards per skein in a 100% Pima Cotton base. Try it for summer tanks and sweaters, baby blankets and sweaters, soft washcloths, and anything for people who stay away from wool.

Walcot Opus – this sport weight yarn is 70% Falkland Merino (a big rustic) and 30% Baby Alpaca (which adds a perfect touch of tempering). 

Stonehedge Fiber Mill Shepherd’s Wool Worsted – We love this yarn, spun and dyed in Michigan. 100% wool (not superwash), and wonderful for sweaters and winter accessories.

Malabrigo Rasta – Super Bulky, fun for hats and cowls, mitts and scarves, in so many of Malabrigo’s unique and beautiful colors!

Our last Yarn Update included:

New Website Coming Soon!

In case you’re not on our regular Loopy Monthly Email List, I wanted to let you know that we are getting a new website (SOON!) and we are simplifying our Loopy Rewards program. You’ll still be earning points for purchases (and now, for referrals and birthdays), as well as any of our challenges that you participate in. Those can be traded in for Loopy credits (cash towards future purchases). If you have current credit in your account, those will be transferred over to the new site. We are ending the Loopy Reward Store, so if you have points and have had your eye on something in the Reward Store, please purchase those by Thursday morning, April 22 so we can get that out to you. All unused Reward Store points will convert to Loopy credit on the new site. We sent this info out last week to the Monthly List.

Have a great week!

Spring Knitting with JulieSpins

Happy April Monday! I hope you had a nice Easter weekend and are ready for some beautiful spring knitting. We have just the thing.

JulieSpins Euro Fingering 820

These oversized Euro Fingering 820 skeins are great for larger shawls and sweaters (less color matching between skeins). This is the last batch that Julie is able to get on the Euro 820 base. We are looking into some 600 yard options as possibilities in the future. But if you like the 800+ yard skeins, now is the time to get them!

Pattern ideas: V-Neck BoxyCloudsley (Rav), Woolshia Shawl (Rav), Summer Sorrel (Rav)

We’ll be sharing Monday News each week (and I’m going to try to figure out how to add it to our Instagram, too. I think there is a way to do that.) Note – Live at Five is mountain time.
