Contest is over! We’ll announce winners later today!
All of us here at the Knit Picks office have been a fan of Allyson Dykhuizen and her blog Sweatshop of Love for quite a while now. So when she told us of her new project, we were excited to be a part of it.
Holla Knits is a fun new site, dedicated to bringing bold & challenging designs that are sure to tempt you into knitting (and wearing!) right away. The first collection for Spring/Summer was recently released and includes designs from Allyson, Katie Canavan, Emma Welford, and Lily Ubbelohde - all fantastic up & coming designers.

I got the chance to chat with Allyson recently (which you can listen to here) about Holla Knits & her designs in general. It was a lot fun for several reason but mainly because I can now pronounce her last name correctly and the fact she and I are both big baseball fans. (We didn’t include our babbling about baseball in the podcast though. Be thankful.). Take a listen and see why we all adore her around here.

One unique feature of Holla Knits’ collection is the fact that all designs include 2 different yarn suggestions – one version in an indie yarn and one version in one our yarns! We were delighted to be included & it’s always great to see different versions of the same pattern knit up.
