I'm not much of an expert, but I did manage to make a Debbie Bliss button. Is it fair to post Debbie Bliss projects I've already completed? I think I'll start with one of those, but then I'm planning to knit an adult Debbie Bliss sweater. I usually knit baby ones, but I think I'm ready for a bigger challenge.

I knitted the felted bag from the Debbie Bliss Home book. There are some great patterns in the book, and I would definitely knit this bag again, maybe tweak it a little to make the handles a litttle thicker. I do love it though and I have had a lot of compliments on it...which is always nice.
This is it before felting..

After felting...

And this is it lined.

There are other photos on my blog if you want to have a look!

I am new here after finishing my first Debbie Bliss knit a few weeks ago. It's a baby shrug from Simply Baby. Details on my blog. (To go straight to the post click here.) With my sister's permission I'll soon post a photo or two of my niece wearing it. She happened to be wearing a complimenting light blue dress the day of the party, and it matched perfectly! I'm looking forward to trying some of the other patterns in the book but am intrigued also by many other Debbie Bliss books. Has anyone tried any of the patterns from Celtic Knits?
