I’m Karen and I’m a forty-something mum to five wonderful children, and wife to an amazing man.
Growing up I was always very creative, but not with crochet hooks or knitting needles or anything like that. My creativity came in the form of words. Wherever you happened to find me on any given day, I generally had a pen and paper pad in hand.
Then a new love affair began and my writing (quite unintentionally) went by the wayside.
You see, I had babies and I fell totally head over heels in love. Smiles.
While I was pregnant I “found” knitting again after not doing it throughout my teenage years. It was slow and painful mostly but I did manage to create a handful of gorgeous garments and blankets for my little angels.
Over the years I tried and failed miserably to learn to crochet. No matter what I tried, I simply couldn’t do it. I felt so sad because I had always adored all things crochet and I used to ooh and aah whenever I saw a lovely crocheted item in all of it’s wonderful glory.
Then one day, I just happened to come across a wonderful little book one day called “Stich n Bitch Crochet – The Happy Hooker.” And you know what? I have never looked back since! I now happily crochet and knit! 🙂
These days, I am in love with all things yarny – whether it is creating the beautiful yarns to work with, or knitting or crocheting or even sitting creating a lovely woven wrap or scarf, at my loom.
I hope that my blog brings you a little something to make you smile, and that in some small way my creations brighten your day.
