my name is cosette cornelius-bates, although most people call me cosy. i am a full time fiber artist living in pittsburgh, pa. i have a fine arts background that turned very easily into fiber art when given the chance. i like making things and find myself right at home with the colors and textures of all things woolie. i spin, knit, dye, recycle, embellish, design, and teach. i can often be found hawking my wares at yarn shows, at my studio (see below) and through the cosymakes shop. my independent patterns are available in my ravelry pattern shop, the rest can be found in my book Knit One, Embellish Too: Hats, Mittens, and Scarves with a Twist.
i’m hoping that my future holds much more designing, teaching, knitting, dyeing, spinning, and recycling. thanks for visiting my blog and i hope you enjoy it.
