Rustic, organic, urban, natural–a collection of unique knitted accessories. Enjoy a clean, sophisticated take on knitting with Rustic Modern Knits. Yumiko Alexander's collection of 23 knitted accessories takes its inspiration from the natural world. Her knitted headbands, shawls, wraps, mitts, hats, and more all reflect her interest in nature's beauty–verdant leaves, flowers, shells, waves, and colors inspired by sunsets and stone. Versatile knitting designs allow a shawl to become a scarf or a cape by making just a few slight adjustments. Stitch patterns and easy techniques have central focus here, as the silhouettes or shapes are kept simple to emphasize the knitted fabric. Yumiko's knitting designs are fashion-forward but never trendy--they exist in a sphere all their own. Despite or perhaps because of their organic and rustic feel, they are very much at home in a cosmopolitan setting, and should appeal to knitters looking for beautiful and unique knitting projects to wear.

The 21st century has seen rural residential architecture take ideas from both the Modern Bauhaus design movement and the ever-popular Shingle Style. The result is a style that borrows from vernacular forms and materials, but uses them in new ways. Issues of sustainability and energy conservation are also key to contemporary country house design. Orienting windows to capture heat in winter, but protect the house from the sun in summer is an ongoing design objective. The modern country house is a hybrid of several ingenious ideas blended together to create a modern, sustainable and highly liveable architecture that respects the past and looks forward into the future.
