Melissa Lund is the founder of the Wales Street Knits podcast, the Wales Street Design blog, and the hand-dyer behind Wales Street Yarns.  She has been knitting most of her life and over the years has thankfully progressed from those early projects that look like pieces of chewed string.  Here, you'll find a selection of lovely, lovingly hand-dyed yarns with colors that tell a story, as well as somewhat intermittent blog posts about DIY-ing all of the things.

In her non-knitting life, Melissa plays the french horn and the oud, lifts heavy things, and makes up impromptu cat songs.  Originally from Chicago, she now lives in an 1880s fixer-upper in Boston with her husband Frank and their two cats, Roscoe and Anouk.
