A Note about Holli: Holli’s passion for knitting has spanned a lifetime, from learning to knit as a child to her arts degree majoring in textiles and jewelry, and a solid 15+ years of design and teaching experience. Her work has appeared in industry leading publications including Vogue Knitting, Interweave Knits, Amirisu and Twist Collective, as well as in her Ravelry shop and book Tempest, published in collaboration with Sweet Georgia Yarns. Holli feels strongly about fine craftsmanship, believing that while there’s more than one right way to do things, it’s important to do it right! To this end, she teaches skills that enable knitters to feel justified pride in their finished objects, while accommodating different knitting styles and preferences. Students leave her workshops with an arsenal of valuable techniques, deep understanding of the choices to be make in knitting, and new confidence.
