Another great question from a reader up on the blog today. Sarah asked if I had to pick one Debbie Bliss book (only one!) what would it be? Mmmmmm tricky question because I have a few favourites. First of all my all time favourite and go to book is Baby Knits for Beginners. So many great patterns and my favourite raglan sleeve cardigan is in there which is a gorgeous present for a new baby and a great unisex cardigan.
But I couldn’t just stop at one. Next I said it would have to be Essential Kids. I’ve made the party shrug and super cute doll from the book and it’s a great book for once you’ve moved past baby and toddler knits because your little ones are growing up.
And in the end my lovely reader Sarah picked up Essential Baby. Good choice.
And a little tip that I’ve shared before but will share again. If you’re umming and ahhing over a book just pop over to Ravelry. Put the authors name and book title into pattern search or just the book title will do and it should appear and then if you click on ‘view all patterns’ then it will bring up most or all of the patterns in the book if you are lucky and you can see other people’s projects using that pattern. Very handy if you are buying a book over the net and haven’t flicked through it. Here is an example for Simply Baby.
