Ruth Cross

Ruth Cross is a knitwear designer in the UK. I found her through the Selvedge website, which always has lovely products in gorgeous photos! I like the neutrals in her design, it's so soothing. Her stitches are luxurious and textural. I really wish I could touch everything in her collection. Please go visit her site, it's amazing! Here's a link to Selvedge, too. I'm really lucky in that the CCS library gets subscriptions to magazines, including this one, so that we students don't have to. She makes me want to knit!

I think I must have one of these for my french press! It will encourage me to use it a bit more... I've been slacking.

I like the idea and the texture of this necklace. I think I would be more inclined to make one that was larger so it was more like a necklace/scarf/cowl.

I love that stitch on the top. I would like to know what it is. Anyone know??

I've always liked mug and to-go cup cozies, but here's some new, sophisticated inspiration. I've always thought that texture and yarn quality is crucial. At least with me, I would be tempted to use my cozy (instead of the paper ones) more often if it feels amazing. It's a little reward for doing well.

A neutral, grown-up monster case! Love it!

This sachet has inspired me to become expert at cables! I did the ring cable last night. It's a really simple cable, but doing it gives me the rhythm and I don't need a pattern to do it now. Yay.
