I’m Melody a twenty-something French lady, living close to the woods in Riga, Latvia.

A few years ago, right before moving to China, I decided to teach myself how to knit by watching videos online. I barely touched my pointy stitcks during the two years that I spent there, but right after coming back to France, I got completely hooked.

My new hobby quickly reached the point where it became an obsession. When I first started, I didn’t know anything about fibre, and how important it was to work with good tools and materials. After a few years of practice, I became a proud yarn “snob”, using natural yarns exclusively, with a preference for naturally dyed yarns with high sheepy content.

I wake up every morning with the goal of owning a piece of land, somewhere in rural France, where I’ll be able to keep working with yarn and fiber while growing a vegetable garden, and share my journey and work with this amazing online community.
