Chief Knitting Officer and Founder of Sh*t That I Knit, Christina Fagan Pardy learned how to knit as a 10-year-old (from her mom Katie Fagan) and kept up the habit. While at Skidmore College, Christina launched the blog www.shitthatiknit.com as a way to share the photos of her knits with her friends and family. After graduation, she frequently sold one-off hats to friends and started to sell through her website. After attending SOWA Market in Boston with her mom in 2014, the business started picking up steam and she quit her 9-5 in 2015 to pursue it fulltime. Today, Christina and her team employ 170 women in Lima, Peru to knit all of her designs. Her hats have been seen in Real Simple and InStyle, and celebrities like Katie Couric, Sarah Jessica Parker, Hilaria Baldwin, and Kristin Cavallari are champions of the brand. In the spring of 2019, STIK was seen on the front page of the Boston Globe for doing nearly a million dollar in sales by utilizing the power of Instagram marketing. Christina lives in Beacon Hill with her husband and right around the corner from her parents, she loves chasing all of the people in her hats around the hill to take photos for her Instagram series, #STIKinthewild.
