Treehouse Mitts - Knitting

The Threehouse mitts and hat have been inspired by the woodsy state of Oregon. I imagined spending some time in the middle of a pine forest, dwelling in a treehouse, sitting on the windowsill with pillow around me, a cup of tea, some knitting, and the sound of the wood burning in the stove.

The treehouse mitts and hat are very simple and wearable accessories for a cosy night next to the bonfire, a walk in the woods or nature dreaming for city folks. The hat and the mittens both features twitted stitches that symbolises the forest that dream off so very often.

Mandarine's

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.
