In recognition of Pride Month, we have a special new kit in the shop. The ShannaJean Club is a collaboration between designer Shannon Squire and dyer Lorajean Kelley of Knitted Wit. Their adorable June kit features one full skein of Knitted Wit Fingering (400 yards) and a set of rainbow-colored Sixlet Gumballs mini-skeins (45 yards each; 270 yards total).
The kit comes in two color options (Shannon and Lorajean), and each kit is $58. Kits are available in our online shop.
Lorajean colorway: a full skein of Fingering in Black Rock Candy, paired with Gumballs in: Liberally-Bleeding Heart, Sweet Potato Pie, Pollen, Oscar the Grouch, Not the Tealest, & Clematis.
Shannon colorway: a full skein of Fingering in Bespeckled Silver, paired with Gumballs in: Haute Pink, Glazed Over Carrots, Moonglow, Cat Eyes, Aquamarine, & Foxglove.
Shannon has designed a cute cowlette just for this kit called “In Season, ” available June 1. The pattern can be purchased separately from the kit on Ravelry (kit is YARN ONLY). If this cowlette isn’t your style, Shannon has an amazing collection of other patterns created specifically for Knitted Wit rainbow mini-skeins.
We’re kicking off a month-long KAL using the June ShannaJean kit on Saturday, June 6 at 11 am CT, when Shannon and Lorajean will join our Open Stitch to knit along with us and talk about their collaboration on the club, their annual National Parks yarns and make-along, and more. Make In Season or any of Shannon’s mini-skein patterns using the kit and join in the KAL! Support and chat for the KAL will be provided during our regular Saturday Open Stitch times in June. Register here to join the weekly Open Stitch mailing list, or register here to get Zoom login information for just the chat with Shannon and Lorajean.
