Kristin has been drawing her whole life for fun, and is inspired by her environment. Living in Florida surrounded by nature, the beautiful flowers, sun, sea, and creatures provide the ever-present and ever-changing examples of beauty for her inspiration. Perhaps paradoxically, she also loves geometry and symmetry and is inspired by Mandalas, traditional Henna designs and Moroccan tiles.
From humble beginnings learning to knit and crochet while pregnant with her son 14 years ago, Kristin has been involved in nearly every aspect of the fiber industry. The crochet expert on "Knitting Daily TV" for 10 seasons, she is also a sought-after teacher, instructor and guest presenter at yarn shops and industry events. Kristin has been a knit and crochet designer for over 11 years, and is the best-selling author of 11 how-to craft books and counting. This powerhouse has increased her brand dramatically over the past year to include Kristin Omdahl Yarns, a growing yarn company including yarns that Kristin dyes herself.
About a year ago Kristin began designing fabrics, and is now also creating more "home dec" designs. Incorporating fabric into her new designs will be the next step.
