A Little Knitty began in 2008 when Jen began selling baby hats to friends after she created a few hats for her newborn son. Over the years she attended many craft shows where she sold the finished hats. As demand increased for the hats, her little hands just couldn't keep up. Knitters began asking for her one of a kind patterns, so she started publishing them in 2014. It was the first time she recognized that although she loved everything about knitting, her passion was in designing, dreaming, testing, inspiring and teaching!
She now distributes patterns on Ravelry & PixieFaire and opened A Little Knitty Yarn Shop (Her dream come true) in Downtown Auburn, Washington in 2016.
Jen lives in Auburn, Washington with her Husband, Brian and their two kids, Nolan & Piper. When she isn't knitting, you can find her off on adventures with her family (with yarn in tow!). She has a strange affinity for cake decorating videos (despite the fact that she cannot bake to save her life) and loves Thai food!
Hi! My name is Kris Brock and I’m so happy to be joining the team at A Little Knitty. I love to knit and have a passion for yarn so this is a good spot for me!
I grew up in CA but have lived in WA for 27 years. My husband and I raised 2 sons here in Auburn and we love this community. I was a para-educator in the Auburn School District for 10 years and continue to work in the district as a part-time substitute teacher.
Along with knitting, I love to cross stitch, read, cook, and especially travel with my husband, Steve. Knitting is always with me, especially on planes, and I have made a variety of things including sweaters, shawls, Christmas stockings, socks, gnomes, and many many baby blankets that I like to donate.
I still have a lot to learn about knitting but I love to be challenged and try new patterns and yarns. I want to learn how to crochet and weave. I am always encouraged when I hear about other people's projects, so please share them with me when you come into the shop.
Super friendly and I know I can always ask Jen to help when I hit a 'snag' in my project. - Denise Scarboro
I totally adore A Little Knitty! The selection of yarn is varied and high quality in a wide range of prices, and Jen is so friendly and nice and will help you to select patterns and yarn. She has a good selection of patterns, and her own original patterns are well written and easy to understand, too. - Karen Harbaugh
What a wonderful little store! Jen is so kind and helpful. She has a thoughtful selection of yarns with samples and patterns for inspiration. I highly recommend stopping in to enjoy the store and support a great local business. - Shelli Bordeaux
