After her first life as an ER doctor, Casapinka yearned for a creative outlet and discovered the world of blogs, She mashed together a Spanglish moniker for "pink house," combining her love of designing and knitting to create the colorful pink world we have all come to know and love. Her designs and knitalongs always rocket to the top of Ravelry's "hot right now" thanks you her on-trend aesthetic, color sense and unique brand of humor.
Casapinka is passionate about supporting small dyers and local yarn stores as well as reveling in the beauty, energy, and fulfillment that knitting brings.
"You don't have to be fast," she says. "As long as you are consistent with it, you're going to get something out of it."
Along with her head employee and snarkiest cat, Sharon from Security, Casapinka brings you an empowering, approachable, and entertaining course that is bound to leave you wanting to cast on colorwork project after colorwork project.

I'm Shelley Brander, the founder of Knit Stars, and I know how it can feel to be alone in your creative passion. For my first few decades as a knitter, I was on my own! When, at age 35, I pivoted from my broadcast production career and opened a local yarn store, I saw firsthand how one great teacher can truly change your knitting life.
I created Knit Stars to bring the best teaching to knitters and crocheters around the globe. I used to be afraid to fly, but now I travel to remote locations around the world, taking you directly into the homes and studios of the most brilliant designers and difference-makers.
Now in its 9th year, Knit Stars has become a learning platform like no other. With feature-film quality production, documentary yarn stories combined with workshops you own and can return to again and again. Knit Stars gives us all a place to grow - in confidence and connection.
I personally invite you to join us. Wherever you are in your journey, you truly deserve the Knit Stars Masterclass experience. You and your creativity are worth it!
"Working on this Casapinka pullover shawl swatch this morning is amazing. I’m loving the extra tips and the way she helps navigate nerves and see the simplicity. I can’t wait to do the other classes after I finish my Sushi and Snark!"
"I so enjoyed watching Casapinka in her element, with her staff (Sharon, Finn, Jean from IT). I’ve done a number of Casapinka projects and she never fails to teach me something new. I did get the yarn for this project, and I’ll be starting it soon. While watching I was knitting one of her other patterns for a Christmas gift (“Noncho,” also not a poncho - my second one). Lots of Sharon Snax, and I’m looking forward to enjoying her extra cowl as well! Thanks, [Casapinka]!"
