Anna’s Story

Anna lives in a village in the south-east of Sweden, and she has been knitting for as long as she can remember. During the day, Anna works as a Software Quality Engineer, and at nighttime she runs her small creative biz where she does designing and technical editing as well as teaching and arranging knitting retreats. Anna uses her logical skills to write her patterns in a way that shall be easy to follow for both experienced and new knitters.

Anna also wrote an article for Issue 3 describing the business relationship and friendship between Gro @moodsofcolors, of Moods of Colours and herself.⁣ This article clears up some of the questions around how and why collaborations work when two like minds meet and join in a supportive and creative environment.⁣
