Behind the Scenes at Knitted Wit

So how does this magic get into the dyepots for you? There’s a whole team of sassypants individuals behind the scenes at Knitted Wit World Headquarters, dyeing yarn, twisting skeins, affixing labels, and shipping this rainbow-filled fiber all over the place.

There’s Lorajean herself, the sparkling rainbow-obsessed unicorn queen of Knitted Wit. Her focus is on creating community within the fiber arts world, and social justice and anti-racism are her everyday goals. She does literally all of the jobs, most of the days.

Next up is Sandy, Knitted Wit’s main dyer, who is creative, dependable, and an all-around fabulous part of the team. Added bonus: her pup, Hagrid, is her personal assistant, and comes to work with her every day. 

Once the yarn is dyed, Claire ensures all our skeins are ready to go by twisting and labeling each skein — she also helps make sure we are all organized and that the studio stays in tip-top shape.

Kimberly is our resident graphic designer/everything beautifier. She makes the electronic magic happen every day. She designed our logo, and almost all of our enamel pins and marketing items, AND the awesome ShannaJean Club logo!

Shannon is the Knitted Wit wordsmith, and is writing these bios currently. She writes the Knitted Wit newsletters, and is behind a lot of the KW communications. She also designs oodles of projects in KW yarn every year, and always has at least a few socks in KW Sock on the needles at any time.

We’ve got quite a team, and it makes our unicorn-loving hearts just sing to think of the love and care that goes into each part and piece of the Knitted Wit puzzle.
