About Kristin

This is one of my favorite photos! It is a product shot of Sweet Clara Crochet Top and Crystal Chain Necklace (both free patterns) featuring Be So Fine and Be So Sporty Yarns. But what you don't see is that my son is taking the photo and we are dodging the cottonmouth snakes slithering in the hot gravel behind me! There was only a short window of time before the summer afternoon storms rolled in, and we were trying to get the shot without a snake disaster!

From humble beginnings learning to knit and crochet while pregnant with her son 16 years ago, Kristin has been involved in nearly every aspect of the fiber industry.  She was the crochet expert on “Knitting Daily TV” for 10 seasons and now is the host of a popular YouTube Channel where she teaches knitting and crochet, interacts with her audience with regular questions and answers, and so much more.

This powerhouse has increased her brand dramatically over the past couple of years to include Kristin Omdahl Yarns, a growing yarn company including yarns that Kristin dyes herself. Kristin has been designing for over 15 years. She is the best-selling author of 13 how-to craft books and offers hundreds of free patterns on her website supporting her beautiful yarns. 

She hosts a local knitting and crochet club weekly where she donates her time to teaching her community to be more crafty. She is also a sought-after teacher, instructor and guest presenter at yarn shops and industry events. 

She creates fresh and thoughtful food recipes as well as all natural body care products, and shares her recipes and the healing purposes behind the formulas. Sewing, furniture making, DIY makeovers, drawing, painting, you name it. If you can make it with your hands, Kristin is probably dabbling in it and sharing her tips & tricks along the way!

You can see Kristin knitting and crocheting in public at south Florida tennis tournaments. You can't miss her, she is the beaming and proud, #1 fan of her tennis superstar son.

And a portion of every sale funds her charity Project Kristin Cares, helping people affected by domestic violence. Stay tuned for what Kristin's cooking up next!
