Lisa Hoffman, knitwear designer and knitting teacher, lives in New York City with her husband, Andrew. She has three grown children living near and far.
Her recent book Faerie Knitting, co-authored with her cousin novelist Alice Hoffman, has been #1 on Amazon.com for knitting. They are currently on a multi-city tour promoting the book and enjoying meeting knitters, writers, readers, and fans of both knitting and fairy tales.
Lisa Hoffman's designs have been published in Vogue Knitting, Interweave Knits and Knitwear Magazines. She has designed projects for Artyarns, Be Sweet, Blue Sky Alpaca, Long Island Livestock, Tahki Stacy Charles and Vijay Fibers. She has projects published in books including Alice Hoffman's Survival Lessons, Vogue Knitting: Mittens and Gloves, Iris Schreier's One + One series, and 60 Quick Baby Blankets, among others. She has original patterns for sale on her Ravelry.com site Lisa Hoffman Knitting. She currently works and teaches knitting classes in New York City.
"With my designing, I love to create patterns that are interesting to work, but are easier than they seem. With my students, I encourage them to learn something new with each project, to build their skills and their confidence, and take responsibility for their own knitting."
