Snuggling up with Comfy Cozy

A couple of weeks ago I was looking for a scarf.  I cannot knit at all but desperately was trying to find something that fit exactly what I was looking for.  I wanted a scarf that had chunky yarn, was soft, not too bulky, and beautiful.  I came across this fabulous Etsy shop The Comfy Cozy, and fell in love.  Turns out, designer Chelsea, had created the perfect knit pieces I had been searching for so I immediately contacted her!

Chelsea's shop is very new and couldn't wait to tell more people about her beautiful products and friendly prices!  Here's how she got started..."A friend taught me to knit my freshman year of college but I didn't stick with it. I wanted a new scarf for the winter but wasn't really finding anything simple and chunky and warm- which is what I wanted. I decided to pull out my old knitting needles and try to knit one. I picked the perfect color/weight of yarn for my scarf that I had been looking for in stores but wasn't able to find. I knit a simple twisted circle scarf and added some fat wooden buttons I had set aside from an old sweater. I have been wearing it almost everyday since!"

"My sister fell in love with it and asked me to make her one, once her friends saw it, they wanted one. One thing led to another and I took the plunge and opened my Etsy shop. It has been so much fun hunting to super soft beautiful yarns and I am always scouring second hand shops for old sweaters that have interesting buttons that I can use."
