In Stores Now..the New Debbie Bliss Knitting Magazine!

The Fall Knitting Magazines have arrived!

There is nothing I like better than sitting down with a new magazine and a cuppa tea!

The Fall/Winter 2009 Debbie Bliss Knitting Magazine

I love knitting magazines! I lucked out and picked up the new Fall/Winter 2009 Debbie Bliss Knitting Magazine the moment it hit the shelf at my local Barnes & Noble!

Here's a sneak peak at the new Debbie Bliss magazine! 
I think this issue could be her best one yet!

The Need for Tweed!

Tweed is all the rage for fall and I am ready to jump on the tweed bandwagon! Sweater season is very short in California so I plan on knitting some tweed accessories to get "my need for tweed"! I really like the cable knit tweed tote in Debbie's new Donegal Chunky Tweed yarn. Wouldn't it make a perfect fall weekend "getaway" bag?

Putting on the Ritz!

Who doesn't love getting all "dolled up" and Puttin' on the Ritz?! This magazine feature has four dressy sweater jackets all appropriate for taking tea at The Ritz London or your next formal affair!

Fall for Fair Isle!

I've always adored Fair Isle knits! According to this article, I can master Fair Isle colorwork in two hues (colors) with just a little practice. I am ready to try Fair Isle! I think I will start with a Fair Isle beret!

Britannia Rules!

It's no secret...I'm a big British fan!

I love my British ancestry, Union Jacks, British traditions, tea and scones, British puddings, British china (Spode, Wedgwood, Burleigh & Emma Bridgewater), British Style (Laura Ashley, Cath Kidston, & Trisha Guild) and ,of course, British knitwear designers Louisa Harding, Kim Hargreaves and Debbie Bliss!

Fabulous Brit Knits!

I love this "Britannia Rules" magazine feature with all the great Brit Knits! I think the Union Jack pillow, Tartan Tea Cozy and Fair Isle Hot Water Bottle Cover are all fab!

I am really inspired now to knit for fall and winter. I just wish our sweater season was longer here in California than just a few months!

Have you picked up the new Debbie Bliss Magazine yet? 
As always...
I'd love to hear what your favorites are in the new issue!

I can't stand it. We still don't have it here in Oklahoma but hopefully by the end of the week! Thanks for the sneak peak!

Hi Ruth,
I hope you can find it soon!
You will love Debbie's daughter Nell's recipe!

Maybe that vendor night is done (for this year :-), we can all sit down a relax more often for tea and magazines! Thanks for the great insight to this wonderful magazine. I'm really looking forward to the one I'm getting on October 15th...

I am British and recently traced my ancestry back to Fair Isle in the Shetland Isles. I have always loved Aran and Fair Isle knitting and am about to start a Fair Isle beret. It is a fantastic way to preserve our heritage with something that is alive and that gives such pleasure! x
