Ruth is a passionate knitter and teacher. She uplifts ever aspect of knitting to show how important even the most mundane. I like how she allows each knitter the space to question and learn comfortably. No fair judge approach from her! String theory is lucky to have her at this upcoming weekend workshop. I wished I lived closer to attend.
