Springtime Bliss!

 Spring & Summer Bliss!

Spring has sprung...
 and my favorite new magazine of the season,
is the Debbie Bliss spring/summer 2011 knitting magazine. 

Here's a look at some of my favorites from Debbie's magazine:

 Nell's Banana Muffins

One of my favorite features of Debbie's magazine is,
The Blissfull Life

Each season, The Blissfull Life is filled with Debbie's hand-picked selection of vintage collectibles, crafty treats and baked recipes.  This issue features her daughter Nell's Banana Muffins.  I love making Banana Muffins and can't wait to try Nell's which have chocolate chips and icing.  Yummy!

I had the extreme pleasure of meeting Debbie and her daughter Nell last August on their Northwest tour.  In chatting with Debbie she was so humble about her Blissful Life section.  I told her how much we knitters love that glimpse into her Blissful Life!

 The Rose Cardigan

The magazine says it best "Spring is in the air"!

I love flowers and pretty floral knits so I just love the issue's Fabulous Florals.  

The Rose Cardigan above is knit in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino with intarsia roses.  Wouldn't this be perfect to wear to a tea or garden party? 

 Crew Neck Rose Cardigan

The intarsia rose motif and mother-of-pearl buttons give this classic crew neck cardigan such vintage-flair.  It's knit in Debbie's Rialto yarn, an extra fine merino. 

This is a cardigan I would like to knit someday!

 Lace Stole

If you're in love with lace, you'll love the feature called,  A Fine Romance.  These pretty lace patterns feature Debbie's new kid mohair/silk blend yarn, Angel.  I can't wait to knit one of the lace designs, like the leaf lace stole above and try her new Angel yarn.

Lace Capelet

The lace capelet (on the cover) is perhaps my favorite pattern in the magazine.  I love knitting capelets.  This design can be knit in 2 to 3 balls of Debbie's Angel yarn.  It's in my knitting que!

There are so many wonderful features
and patterns in this magazine..

aww...Springtime Bliss!

The lacey stole is fabulous! I've heard Debbie Bliss speak on a panel, and she was very witty.

Hi Lisette,
I must go get that magazine because I love to make banana nut muffins, too. I hope all is well with you. Been to Knitique lately??
