“Ragga (raggaknits on Ravelry) is an Icelandic knitter, knitting instructor, knitwear designer, knitting entrepreneur, nurse and writer.
After earning a university degree in nursing and spending many years in the pharmaceutical business in sales and marketing, Ragga decided to use all her experience to pursue a career in knitting related projects inspired by all the wonderful knitters, bloggers, podcasters, designers and entrepreneurs she had gotten to know.
The turning point came when Ragga published her first book in 2008 along with Halldóra Skarphéðinsdóttir. Knitting Iceland became reality in 2009 when the first DVD came out (Prjónum saman – only out in Icelandic so far) and the first knitting tours were offered in the summer of 2010.
Today Ragga works on her knitting related projects, her writing/lecturing/workshops on sexuality and part time as a nurse in the psychiatric intensive care unit of the University Hospital of Iceland”. [From the artist’s website / Du website de l’artiste]
