About the Designer: Artesanitarium
The Artesanitarium is a magical kingdom full of imagination, inspiration and twisted beauty. It is run by Annina, the Queen of Cables. She has over 100 designs under her belt, and more are coming. She gets inspired by fantasy, sci-fi, architecture, and mythology. Her designs always have some kind of extra twist in them.
The Artesanitarium is located in the snowy parts of Northern Europe so most of the designs are for what some call “heavier yarn” but in the Artesanitarium, it’s just “yarn”. The Queen wants to enable everyone to knit beautiful feminine things, regardless of the thickness of the yarn or needles.
Visit her web site, her Ravelry name is Artesanity and her Instagram is @artesanitarium.
