On the 10th of November 2018, Skacel is challenging the knitting community to create 10,000(Ten Thousand) New Knitters in one day.
Read the press release below.
Are you an established knitter who would love to share your passion?
Or, are you a person who admires all the fabulous things your knitter friends, family and co-workers are creating?
Join skacel on November 10, 2018, as we challenge the knitting community to create 10,000 New Knitters in one day! skacel will be providing FREE kits to new knitters to make a pair of fingerless mitts in partnership with established knitters and the Local Yarn Shop (LYS).
Here’s how it works:
As a new or established knitter, you can pick up a free NEW KNIT KIT from a participating LYS.
Established knitters can use this kit to teach someone how to knit on November 10th! By pairing a new knitter with a source of help, they will be more likely to finish the project and develop their skills further.
Be sure to share your experience via social media by tagging @10000NewKnitters and using #10000NewKnitters in your posts!
Future knitters (newbies) can visit a participating LYS to pick up their free kit on November 10th and receive help from the staff, or members of the knitting community.
Each kit comes with a ball of Special Edition Sueño Worsted in Natural, a pair of US8 (5mm) addi Linos straight needles and a pattern to create beginner-friendly fingerless mitts.
No LYS in your area?
Order the NEW KNIT KIT through 10000NewKnitters.com. Just pay shipping and the kit will be delivered* to your door!
Tune in on November 10th for a step-by-step video that will show how to knit this project. Viewers can pause, rewind, and access this video for free upon its release on 10000NewKnitters.com and our Facebook page.
