I have been a huge fan of Karen’s for many years now. I’ve purchased a couple of bright colourful pieces for my daughters and I receive compliments every time they are worn.
Karen lives in Canberra with her “extremely patient husband of 31 years” and their three adult children. Karen makes hand knitted items for babies and children using good quality and luxury yarns. Every single piece is hand knitted by Karen who learnt to knit from her mum when she was 4-5 years old – a skill which she has now passed on to her own daughters.
I love colour and the different ways it can be combined. I think children’s wear should be bright and fun… something that makes you smile.
“My first little colourful cardigan came about from a bag of yarn oddments which I bought at a car boot sale whilst travelling around the UK in a caravan when our youngest were only two and three.
“I then spent my evenings knitting it up into cardigans that my girls absolutely lived in as they kept them lovely and warm.”
