Autorenporträt
Anna-Karin Lundberg began knitting as a child and is a self-taught graphic and textile designer with a university degree in musicology and ethnology. She is the designer behind the Kaja Sticks collections, playfully traditional designs for handknit garments that are fun to knit and easy to wear. Historical inspiration is a common trait in Lundberg's designs, and her fascination with period costumes is reflected in her motifs, colors, shaping, and knitting technique. http://www.kajsasticks.se/en/index.htm
