  1. I’ve just listened to your interview on Fiber Story TV and couldn’t wait to get to work to subscribe to Holla Knits. Your laugh is infectious. I almost wish I was in Chicago so I could take every one of your classes and sit in the
    coffee shops and bars and knit with you. And I’m not even close to your age.
    And even though I am way older, I love the designs I’m seeing on your sites. Looking very forward to the release in April and after that. Thanks for a fantastic interview. I have a 30 minute drive to and from work, which is when I listen to podcasts. It felt as though I had two knitting friends in the car with me. It was totally a fun ride. Knit on.

  2. Hi!
    I love your bombshell shorts! They’re really adorable and I’m planning to buy them as soon as I get my paychecks! 🙂
    Is it possible if you make a pattern for a cable shorts, though?
    Something like this: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-MjlfG49cxcU/Trw6c3KrfsI/AAAAAAAABek/tRC5g0c8-yg/s1600/1%2Bcable%2Bknit%2Bshorts%2Bstolen%2Bgirlfriends%2Bclub.png

    I really love this shorts and would love to make these myself!!! I WILL DEFINITELY BUY THE PATTERN FOR YOU OMG.
    Please email me at doubleoxm@hotmail.com if you are going to do it!

    Thank you for reading!

    • Ohh yeah those thick cables are cute, too! You can absolutely modify the pattern to accommodate the extra cables you want to include in your shorts! You can just use Katie Canavan’s pattern as a reference. I can’t wait to see what you come up with! Thanks again!

  4. Sure wish your patterns where available via the Ravely LYS service – I’d love to be able to share them with my customers.

    • Hi Sarah,

      They aren’t available as Ravelry LYS downloads because they aren’t available as Ravelry downloads, but I’m happy to sell you patterns at a bulk rate discount if you’re interested. Just let me know what you’re thinking and I’m happy to help.

  7. Hi Allyson!
    I’m trying to purchase some of your patterns but every pattern I click on just basically refreshes the page – every time! I’m starting to get extremely frustrated… 😒

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you kindly!
