Hello! My name is Hilde Smith and I am super excited to begin working at Little Knitty. I am very impressed with Jen’s vision for the shop and the community and I look forward to being a part of her team.
I grew up in Minnesota. I earned a degree in microbiology at the University of MInnesota where I met my husband. I worked in the Microbiological Teaching Labs at the University of Minnesota for 5 years, then became a stay-at-home mom when my daughter was born.
We moved to Washington 22 years ago. I have a son in college studying to become an entomologist and my daughter is grown and just beginning a music teaching career. I started knitting about 12 years ago when my daughter wanted to learn.(Remember the Fun Fur craze?)
I now love knitting and want to learn everything I can about this hobby I’ve become so passionate about. I’ve knit hats, mittens, sweaters, stuffed animals, socks and shawls. I’ve tried double knitting, brioche, stranded colorwork, lace, and recently worked a steek into a Norwegian cardigan. I love figuring out the mechanics behind every stitch, and learning how different stitches work. This helps when it comes time to fix those inevitable mistakes! I may not always understand every stitch, but I sure do like to try.
My other interests include sewing, embroidery, baking, traveling, and hiking. I look forward to meeting everyone and serving the yarn arts community. I hope to learn a lot from all of you, too!
Maribel is the amazing talented artist behind Rainier Roses Yarn Co. We are so thrilled to have her as one of our A Little Knitty Team Members!
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.
Info about Teresa coming soon!
Info about Melinda coming soon!
Hello my name is Rowan, I’m currently 18 and was the former president of my High School’s Knitting and Poetry Club. I’ve always enjoyed various forms of Art whether it’s Drawing, Crochet, Rainbow Loom, and many other things like Pottery and Literature. I have various hobbies and have learned a lot of things during my life that I now bring with me. My long-term ambitions include discovering more about myself as a person. I want to pursue art as a career, and working with A Little Knitty is one of the most exciting ways for me to develop and grow as an artist. I began knitting at a young age and then picked up on the rainbow loom, which some of you may be familiar with and have enjoyed in recent years, which quickly evolved into what I now enjoy with all my heart: Crochet. I Crochet clothing most of the time but sometimes I make small Amigurumi Plushies for my loved ones. Having an idea and bringing it to life brings me joy nothing else can ever bring me, the process of watching your creation come to life is something I want to share with everyone around me. The bliss of tying off your last stitch and admiring your efforts and hours of work is what keeps me passionate about Crochet and other forms of Art. I'm excited to teach and hopefully inspire anyone interested in beginning their own artistic journey; it all starts with practice, and I'm honored to be one of the people who can help you learn more about yarn and all the things you can create with it. I look forward to meeting you all and I’m sure we’ll have a wonderful time growing our skills as Artists. :)
Rowan will begin in September 2023 leading our Kids Klub and we hope to have her begin teaching private lessons and classes as well!
Here's a little of what people are saying....
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
Lovely little yarn shop with high quality yarns and notions. Owner was VERY helpful with yarn selection for a pattern I was looking for. If I lived in the area, I'd definitely be taking classes and spending time there! - Lauren Bowling
