First of all, thanks for being here. Thanks for signing up for our email list or visiting our blog or liking our silly Instagram posts or buying our knit sh*t. Thanks for supporting this dream.
I’m not sure when you showed up—maybe you knew me in middle school when I had a bowl cut and first learned how to knit? Maybe you met me and my mom at SoWa in the fall of 2014 when we sold the knit hats that we spent all summer knitting ourselves? Maybe you read about the STIK Clique that formed in February of 2015, when we assembled a group of 20-somethings in Boston to join our knitting revolution? Maybe you supported our KickStarter, which was funded in under 24 hours, and rocked one of our knit hats during the first real Sh*t That I Knit season? Maybe you’re a newbie (hi and welcome!) and have no idea what I am talking about… but you know how to read and it’s pretty evident that Sh*t That I Knit has experienced many different phases as it evolved into the company we are so proud of today.
So as we evolve further, we have some exciting updates for the Fall/Winter 2016 season:
- 1:1 Program: Give-A-Sh*t Knit Kits: This year, for every hat we sell online, we will be donating a Give-A-Sh*t Knit Kit to a young adult with cancer. These kits contain wool, needles, a pattern, and anything else a patient may need in order to complete a knitted project. Knitting has been linked to provide meditative and therapeutic benefits and it’s a great activity to take your mind off of things when you’re not doing so hot. We are excited to share our love of knitting with those who are going through a particularly sh*tty time.
- Sh*t That I Knit in PERU: We are pumped to announce that an amazing group of women in Lima, Peru will be knitting the bulk of our knit sh*t this season. What does this mean for you? Not that much, but now your purchase of a hat provides a viable income for women who have practiced in the art of knitting for generations. They are experts in the craft. And since all of our yarn is sourced in Peru, it kinda really makes sense to keep it all in one place.
- Prices: If you’ve given our website a gander recently, you’ll notice that we’ve lowered our prices. As we’ve grown, we’ve become more efficient in how we source our materials, thus making our prices dramatically lower. But this price change does NOT reflect our products’ quality. I’d argue that our merino wool is softer than ever.
- Free Shipping: Because who doesn’t love free shipping?! It’s my favorite kind.
We could not do this without all of your love and support. We value your feedback, so please drop a line if you have any questions or comments about these recent changes.
We CANNOT wait for it to be hat wearing season!!!
Christina + Everyone at STIK
