Collaboration with La Casita in Brooklyn




When I arrived in NYC last September, I heard rumours of a new yarn shop in Brooklyn called La Casita. I had heard nothing but good about this shop and people raved about it's friendliness and happy energy.

Of course I had to find out myself and made the trek to La Casita's in mid November. 


All the good things I'd heard about this shop proved to be true and then some. When I first entered this shop I was greeted with such warmth and genuine friendliness, I felt I got wrapped up in a hand knitted cashmere blanket. 

Enthusiastic spirit

After my first visit, I have returned weekly and almost every Sunday you can find me at La Casita's knitting away at their cafe.


There is a happy, friendly and warm energy omnipresent in this incredibly sweet little yarn shop.

La Casita is owned by two sassy young ladies called Jennifer and Amanda. Their enthusiastic spirit is simply contagious!

Hannah, a very talented artist and designer who works at La Casita, has an equally enthusiastic spirit and her curiosity for my patterns made me feel comfortable enough to show off my designs. The reaction was more than I could have hoped for!


I am very happy to announce that La Casita has decided to offer several of my patterns for sale at their shop. 

They have made me so happy... I want to hug and squeeze them!

Yarn shop La Casita in Brooklyn is at this moment the only yarn shop in NYC that offers my patterns. Hurray!

And just so you know, these patterns are also available on Ravelry

I am very thankful

Words cannot express how thankful I am with this collaboration.


Thank you Jennifer, Amanda, Hannah and Tracy for welcoming me with such warmth and for giving me the opportunity to display and offer my work!

Let me leave you tonight with some pictures I took at La Casita's. I wish you could feel the friendliness and warmth through your computer screen... hopefully my words and pictures are able to give you a glimpse!

Should you ever travel to NYC, please pay this yarn shop a visit. It is very easy to reach from Manhattan and you will experience the much more tranquil Brooklyn energy. It is really worth your while going to La Casita's! I can personally attest to that.

Thank you for reading and until the next entry!

Congratulations on both!!  Looks like the New Year is going to be a busy and exciting one for you. :-)I had to come back and add this: I was thinking about you walking home from the shop and could just see you floating along above the sidewalk - on cloud nine! :-)
