Sharon Show MKAL
August 21, 2020 @ 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
An event every week that begins at 3:00 PM on Friday, repeating until September 11, 2020
Casapinka has a new MKAL!
The Sharon Show Begins August 7
If you aren’t familiar with Casapinka, Sharon from Security is her sassy kitten that doesn’t take any nonsense from Jean in I.T.!
Only the schematic for color planning is available now! The Sharon Show is an MKAL that was designed mostly by Sharon From Security, her cat and employee. If you have ANY inclination to being serious, or easily irritated by foolishness or cat knitting designers, please step away, and do not do this MKAL. This is about fun. This is about forgetting we are in a frigging pandemic.
Starts August 7. Runs for 6 weeks, one clue per week.
Shape Straight up rectangle.
Skill Level 2 levels. 1. Absolute beginning shawl knitter, and a more typical Casapinka pattern that is 2. Advanced Beginner. Do not expect anything too difficult and do expect a lot of Netflix knitting. Life is too stressful now for anything else. If this is your first MKAL, don’t worry!
Requires 4 skeins of fingering weight yarn. Testing is not finished but final amounts will be announced next week. Likely 325-350 yards each. It is more important to get colors that are different: the black and white trick phone trick does not tell you this…read below and then really look at them (2 diff shades of the same color are fine, it’s the variegated and speckled you need to follow the guidelines for.)
Choosing ColorsPLEASE SEE HERE about how to choose colors. One variegated yarn is ok but pay special attention to the guide for speckled and variegated yarns and how to tell if they will work. We have put together some kits that we think will work if you are starting from scratch. If you are going to look through your stash and maybe need to add a skein or two, let us know what you have and we would love to help you pick compliments!
How it works One Clue per week is sent out (every Friday) for 6 weeks. There will be a spoiler and a non-spoiler thread in the Casapinka Group. We are going to get together on Zoom at 3:00 EST to dive into the clue and see what is happening.
