Pussyhat Global Virtual March

Join us for the Pussyhat Global Virtual March on 8.3.17! 

As female entrepreneurs & official Pussyhat Project allies, we are doing our part to stand up for human rights and spread the word about the Pussyhat movement. In honor of International Women's Day, we will stand with knitters around the world & take part in the Pussyhat Global Virtual March on Wednesday 8th of March, 2017. 💪🏻

1.  In preparation for the March 8th virtual march, we'll be hosting a "knit in" at ILO on Saturday 4.3 from 15-17.00. Come hang out & knit Pussyhats with us. You can knit a hat for yourself, or knit Pussyhats to donate for others to wear.  

ILO is an official drop off point for Pussyhat donations (see: https://www.pussyhatproject.com/locations/). You can knit as many hats as you would like and mail or drop them off or mail them to ILO (Asemakatu 12, 24100, Salo, Finland) for someone else to wear.

**If you are in need of a donated Pussyhat for yourself or a loved one, please email us at hello@iloyarn.fi. We will add you to our waiting list and we will be in touch if we receive a donated hat we can give you on March 8th!

What an unbelievable experience we have had this New Years. It was a completely emotional weekend as my husband, Ville/Darude, not only performed for 130,000 fellow Finns at the SUOMI 100 opening party on New Years Eve at the citizens square in Helsinki, he wore our SUOMI 100 - Mittens on the main stage as the clock struck midnight!!
