Hey there, I'm Melanie and in my real life I'm an IT specialist, mother of three and a semi-successful housewife. In my secret second life I design knitwear. I live with my husband and three children in Bonn, Germany, where I spend my time combining colors, shapes and textures into freewheeling designs that are uniquely my own. I've been published by yarn companies and knitting magazines large and small, and I've also self-published my own patterns and e-books. I love collaborating with creative types from all over the world.
