I'm Melody, a twenty something French lady & fiber enthusiast.
I currently live & work in Riga, Latvia where I have been established for the past few years.
I am a self-taught knitter, and for a as long as I've been able to hold the two knitting sticks, I have been obsessed. Yarn is oxygen for my hands, and I truly believe that knitting is my language. If you come for a cup of tea, don't be surprised if you find some threads or wooly fluff here and there. My practice is a lifestyle!
I started working for myself in 2015 after publishing my first knitting pattern, and I haven't looked back since then. Creating knitting pattern is both challenging and rewarding. It takes time and dedication.
My work is a personal practice and autobiographical to some extent. It is inspired & influenced by so many things like nature, minimalism, folklore, wabi-sabi & shibui and ecology.
My designs are modern & simple. I like to work with different textures, simple and "little" stitches. My colour palette is not so eclectic: I'm a neutral lover at heart so subtle & muted colours are my favourites. I work with natural fibers exclusively.
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 & raise children. Embracing this creative life has been the most fulfilling thing that I have ever done, and I feel so grateful & blessed to be able to share my journey and work with this amazing online community of fiber fanatics.
When I’m not knitting, cuddling yarn or taking photographs, you can find me walking in the woods, foraging for wild food or dreaming of growing my own veggies.
