25000 Tuques: An update

Huffington Post Québec came to film at our Knit Night last Thursday where customers were  avidly knitting hats for the 25000Tuques campaign. The article and video can be found here (disponible en français seulement / available in French only).

Our tuque bin is filling up and we’re just about to start a new one. Wow, you guys are awesome! If you plan to donate a hat, please note that we’ve been given a tentative deadline of January 3rd for delivery of our collected tuques.  At that point, organizers will do a cross-country count of all of the hats knit in service of this wonderful initiative. We’ll be sure to report back with that number early in the new year🙂

We’ve been honoured to be a small part of the process and have been gratified to see that this initiative has inspired knitters of all ages to become involved.  Even Lisa’s son, Gianluca (age 9), and my son, Tristan (age 11), were keen to get in on the action and worked hard to knit up their first hats. It was so rewarding to see the pride they took in the accomplishment. We definitely see more hat knitting in their future.
