Ragga is an experienced knitting instructor and has published DVDs with knitting techniques and instructions. Her second DVD was published in December 2010 – this time around it’s all about the traditional Icelandic lopi sweaters and in two languages, Icelandic and English. It’s called Knit your own Lopapeysa and can be purchased online.  The first DVDs was originally produced in Icelandic but will soon be available in English.

Raggas firm belief is that knowledlge liberates the knitter. That’s why she likes teaching the little techniques and tricks such as numerous different ways of casting on and off, different styles of increases and decreases and countless other bits and pieces that all enhance the knitter’s ability to tame the thread.

    Hæ Ragga,
    Mig langar svo að læra Rósaleppaprónið.. ég á bókina hennar Helene en er ekki nógu klár til þess að vinna úr henni ein. Þær í Nálinni á Laugarveginum sögðu mér að þið væruð stundum með námskeið í Rósaleppinu.. Ég vona að þú getir hjálpað mér!
    Með fyrirfram þökk,
    Lukka -6612616
