Speaker Bio
Krista Ann has been knitting nearly non-stop since the day she first picked up the needles. She holds the title for LA's Fastest Knitter and has built a solid reputation as the knitter to go to when a piece is needed 'yesterday.' She launched her KnitsyKnits brand and website in October 2014 and has been enjoying working with many creative people. In 2020, she rebranded to the lifestyle brand Explore with Knitsy to include her love of travel and photography. Lately, she has been knitting for fashion designers and stylists, as well as working on tight deadlines to create custom pieces for costume designers (most recently, she has designed and knit many pieces for Mindy Kaling to wear on Hulu's The Mindy Project, and pieces for the movies Tag and Annabelle 3). She has developed many of her own unique techniques that she incorporates into her pieces to be sure the quality and finishing meets the high standards of the industry. Her first book, Knits That Rock vol: 1, is out and available on her website. She loves a challenge and really enjoys sharing her skills and knowledge with others!
