The chunkier the better….nautical rope like these hardy reels in Monaco are positively inspiring…



Oliver Messel’s terracotta tiles on the kitchen floors of Fustic are essentially one dimensional cable knit.  Really ravishing…not to mention practical.


Last winter Benetton had these cable knit props which got me thinking about WAYS to use cable knit…obviously looking for the less obvious.


An early pic from my digital library (hence unidentified)…this clever artist was doing some charming things with knits – do let me know if you can identify it!


Then in the fall Nicky and I spotted this Tricot Knitting Effect wallpaper by Koziel which comes in grisailles and sepia. 


Anthropology has been on the knit wagon this year too so you may be familiar with their knit candles…they are a delight.  Alas it’s all a bit trendy but I DO find a good knit hard to ignore.
