map-pin RIGA, Latvia

I’m Melody a twenty-something year old 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 graduated university with a BA in international law and languages, but soonly realised that this path wasn’t for me. I completed my studies knowing that I would not find a place working in a corporate job, and decided to focus on what really mattered for me by following my dreams.
