Hi, I'm Melissa! I host the knittingthestash podcast and offer lots of tutorials both here and on YouTube. I have been a teacher for over twenty years and I love helping students achieve their goals. I specialize in sweater knitting and modification, but I love knitting ALL the THINGS. What's your next knitting project, milestone, or dream? I'd love to help!

Course Content

My courses are designed to be entertaining, deep-dives into design, garment construction, and crafting history.

I release new courses throughout the year, but my full course catalog is always available. So whether you're an insatiable learner who's looking for something new . . . or a lifelong learner who wants to savor each course (new or old), I hope you'll find the right classes for you!

If you have a suggestion for a future course, I'd love to hear from you! Please email me at knittingthestash(at)
