mellowknee - the knitty gritty

Melanie (aka mellowknee) is rad. Rad to the R-A-D. She also owns a really cute pet rat, to the R -A - T, but that is another story.

In her shop on Etsy one can find hats, scarves, wristbands and awesome knitted bows, which are the perfect accessories for chasing white rabbits down holes.

I met Melanie through the Asheville Etsy Group. She works at the Asheville Free Book Exchange, where I volunteer at times and organized a craft show there last holiday season. She also has offered to share her knowledge and skills involved in making plarn - yarn from plastic grocery bags! Did I mention
she is rad?

Melanie has done a fair amount of chasing herself. She traveled up and down the east coast in kayaks, trains and cars, relying on the kindness of not-so strangers. She stayed in NC, because it is "the most beautiful place" she has ever seen.

We surely are glad to have this gal, and her beautiful work!
