10,000 New Knitters

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 Auntie Zaza’s Fiber Works.

Here’s how it works:

A free knitting kit will be given to you at the time of the event.

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. 

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.

If you're an established knitter who would like volunteer to teach someone to knit, or if you have any questions, please contact us at 508-238-2000, ext. 3, or sign-up HERE.

Kits are limited to 15 new knitters; if you'd like to learn to knit, please register below.
