Sh*t That I Knit Pops Up at SheVillage
If you’ve been following JUGS, you might be familiar with Christina Fagan and her company, Sh*t That I Knit (STIK). To recap, Fagan left her sales job at the age of 25 to start knitting professionally back in 2015 when she not only caught the attention of JUGS but was also featured in Forbes! Fast forward to 2018, STIK has evolved into a mission conscious business, caught the attention of celebrities (hey, SJP and Kristin Cavallari!), and this winter, STIK has its first-ever Boston based pop-up!
Wait, What is is Sh*t That I Knit?
STIK was founded in Boston yet employs Peruvian women in Lima, Peru to knit high-quality Peruvian Merino Wool and Baby Alpaca knitwear. Thanks to STIK, these women are able to work from home and provide for their families.
What’s Going on in the Seaport?
From now until January 1, 2019, STIK has a pop-up as part of She-Village at The Current. She-Village is the first installment of pop-ups at The Current, which is a permanent pop-up village in the Seaport District. She-Village is a six-month installment of women-founded companies, which is currently hosting STIK, Brass, The Giving Keys, and many other companies.
The STIK pop-up has things for everyone on your list - family, friends, significant others, kids - you name ‘em! From hats to neckwear to wraps, each item is hand-dyed and made with care. The pop-up is even offering custom gift-wrapping and monogrammed knitwear!
Oh, and if you like the knitwear, feel free to spread some holiday cheer and thank the women who make it all happen.
Stay warm and have a great holiday season!
