Krista Ann has been clicking away non-stop since she first learned to knit in her early twenties.
Holding the title for LA's Fastest Knitter, she has built a solid reputation as the knitter to go to when a piece is needed "yesterday."
She launched the KnitsyKnits brand in October 2014 with not a lot of idea where it would take her. When she and her husband made the big decision to become nomads in 2019, she wanted to go beyond knitting and also talk about her other passion - travel. So, she rebranded to Explore with Knitsy in December 2020.
Knitting for costume and fashion designers has allowed her to create some pretty fun knit and crochet pieces for film, TV, and commercials. Some of her 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 she transitioned into teaching the art form that she is truly passionate about. She has been teaching for over ten years and loves sharing her love (and secrets!) for all things knitting with other fiber enthusiasts.
She lives with her husband and cat, Phinny, in an RV full time so they can travel all the time. She enjoys visiting yarn shops, fiber farms, and meeting fellow knitters along their travels.
When you learn with Knitsy, your knitting skills will truly ROCK!Instagram: @knitsyknits
