Designer ~ Karen from A Crooked Sixpence

Her Shop ~ A Crooked Sixpence, Her Crochet Shop ~ Emma Lamb, Her Crafting Supply Shop ~ Sixpence Supplies

"Hi, my name is Karen. I live and work in County Durham in the northeast of England U.K.with my husband Dave. I have been knitting since I was a child, which is more years than I care to admit.

I enjoy working with Aran patterns and I am looking into the history of these designs. At the moment I am working with pure wool which I have recently sourced in Scotland, a beautiful traditional yarn in a variety of interesting colours.

I also enjoy card crafting which I have been doing for the past several years. Seeing the pleasure people get when receiving one of my creations, gives me a real buzz."


  1. Karen, your work is stunning! I can't imagine the time it must take to create each piece. :)

  2. I swoon over Karen' shop all the time! She's so talented!

  3. Karen's shop is new to me but, I love it! These items look so cozy and warm. I think I need to take up knitting.


Thanks so much for your comments. Your thoughts, opinions, and ideas are important to me!
