Melissa Rose Caines spent the first 8 years of her life watching her Irish Grandmother knit. It wasn’t until Graduate School 14 years later in Dublin, Ireland that a friend taught her continental-style knitting on the same needles and yarn given to her by her Grandmother. Melissa immigrated to Vancouver, Canada in 2007, where her son was born in 2008. Early life with a child kept her busy and constantly knitting! Since 2011, Melissa has been inspiring beginner to advanced knitters with her classes at Three Bags Full and has a penchant for colour work, steeking, working with traditional wools from Iceland and The Shetland Isles and studying the different ways knitters knit and purl around the world. Having learned as an adult, Melissa is aware of the trials and tribulations adults face when incorporating new techniques into their knitting toolbox and brings a warm sense of humour and steady patience to her classes and workshops.
