Contemporary crochet designs from our home to yours...

Describe your various creative skills...

Kim: As a mom of 4, I am always looking for ways to cut corners without sacrificing quality and style. As such I have done a bit of everything from sewing to furniture refinishing, but my passion is crocheting and designing.

I love the name. What's the story behind it?

When we researched names on the internet we were overwhelmed by the volume of Etsy shops. All of the nice whimsical names we thought up were already taken. In order to come up with something original we jokingly said that we will have to call our shop “NOT SO CUTE”. We changed up the spelling and it just seemed to stick.

When did you start to crochet and who taught you?

Kim: About 17 years ago, I was going through a divorce and I wanted something positive to focus on so I asked my aunt to teach me to crochet.

What was the inspiration behind developing your interest in crocheting?

Kim: I have always had a lot of creative energy, and I've tried my hand a lot of different crafts over the years, but crocheting will always be my favorite hobby. I think mostly because it is portable, and there is no end to the things that you can make.

What influences your style and our output, and what are your inspirations?

I would have to say that my family has been my biggest inspiration and support.

What are the most important aspects of your work?

To create practical designs that fit into our modern, busy lives.

Which project or piece of work are you most proud of?

For me it is always the ones that I struggled the most with. I've learned that mistakes are not disasters but rather they are opportunities for new ideas and growth. With that said, the projects that I'm most proud of are my Wrapped in Lace Shawl and the Simply Felted Ladies Slippers. With both of these patterns I went through a lot of trials before I came up with a fabric and design that captured my vision.

Describe your favorite working space.

Give me a comfy place to sit, a hot drink, and I'm good to go.
