Hey there! I'm Krista and I'll be your instructor!
I have been clicking away non-stop since I first learned to knit in my early twenties.
Holding the title for LA's Fastest Knitter, I have built a solid reputation as the knitter to go to when a piece is needed "yesterday."
I launched the KnitsyKnits brand in October 2014 and haven't looked back since. When we made the big decision to become nomads in 2019, I wanted to go beyond knitting and also talk about my other passion - travel. So, I rebranded to Explore with Knitsy in December 2020.
Knitting for costume and fashion designers has allowed me to create some pretty fun knit and crochet pieces for film, TV, and commercials. Some of my projects include The Mindy Project, TAG the movie, Annabelle: Coming Home, and many other projects (some are still hush hush!).
With a teaching credential and a strong love for knitting, it was only natural that I transition into teaching the craft that I am truly passionate about. I have been teaching for over ten years and love sharing my love (and secrets!) with other fiber enthusiasts.
My husband, our cat Phinny, and I now live and travel in an RV full time with lots of international excursions. I love visiting yarn shops, fiber farms, and meeting fellow knitters along our travels.
When you Learn with Knitsy, your knitting skills will truly ROCK!
