I love these! I purchased the oatmeal color and they're great. These would be awesome Christmas gifts as well. Very comfy and cozy.

Handmade. Custom.

Hello! I live with my family in middle America, in a small city along the lake. I'm a professional creative. I spend my days designing spaces, and I dabble in any number of passing and long lasting creative pursuits in the remaining hours of the day. My most frequent efforts in the past few years have revolved around knitting, crochet, sewing and writing. In the past decade they have included bookmaking, soapmaking, furniture building, upholstery, gardening and probably more. There's very little I wouldn't like to try! I just love the idea of creating something tangible that wasn't there before.

I started my shop, Cozy Cape Cottage, in 2012 when several members of a mothers group took interest in some of my handknits. I'd dabbled with Etsy in the past but never made much of it, so this felt like a good opportunity to try it again.

Why Cozy Cape Cottage? I feel like it works for me on a number of levels. I didn't want a name that was specific to knitting because I know myself and that my interests were likely to stretch and grow. I wanted to be able to include sewn items under the same name, and who knows, maybe someday I'll be painting or trying out pottery. I didn't want to simply use my name, so I looked to my home. Ours is a cape cod style house, and we actively work to make it our home. Cozy because, well, it is, but we don't mind living small, and I liked the correlation between knitted items and warmth as well. Cottage was both an alliterative device as well as a reference to cottage industry. And that's how I landed at Cozy Cape Cottage.

Hi there! My name is Kim, and I'm the sole maker behind Cozy Cape Cottage. I've been knitting and crocheting for over a decade, and sewing for a decade and then some! I'm formally trained as an architect, so my designs carry with them both utilitarian purpose with a precise and artful execution.

I opened my shop after some wonderful ladies in a mothers group made enough custom requests that it became difficult to navigate payment and deliveries myself, so opening an Etsy shop took care of a lot of the coordination and let me focus on simply making things. I'm still excited and humbled each time someone new finds my shop and likes what I'm working on!
