Meet the Maker: Since 2007 "Sassy Girl" Lorajean Kelley has brought her unique sense of color and humor to hand-dyed yarn fiber, allowing knitters and crocheters from coast to coast to craft with her exciting palette of colors. Based here in Portland, Lorajean is also a full-time mom to three and can often be found knitting at school board meetings. Her favorite curse word is "shitake mushrooms."
