Kristy Childress

I taught myself how to knit while working at a coffee shop in the middle of Wyoming, and spinning has also been taking up a bit of my time for the last couple of years.

After finishing my BFA in painting and drawing at the University of Minnesota, I moved back to my homestate of Indiana where I’m working my way through a few sketchbooks of designs, knitting & spinning up some new stock for local craft fairs, and building up my portfolios of both the art and craft objects that I create.

i like:
cats, stripes, wool, squirrels, history, books, coffee, art, things that smell good, walking.. I also have a trunk full of Malabrigo that I can’t quite close anymore.
