Karen’s a lady with very expensive taste—and we’re not just talkin’ top shelf ice cream and fancy beer here. She fell in love with a Dolce & Gabbana cardigan that she could never afford, so asked her mom to teach her to knit one herself. (For the record, her first piece was not a runway-ready sweater, but charmingly uneven beanie—she was hooked nonetheless.) Her “a lovely addiction” blossomed from there, as did her line of chunky, colorful knits. They’re the kind of cold-weather companions that you will not want to take off. Like even when you get indoors. Or get in bed. (No judgments here.)
