Hi, I just finished my Edwardian Jacket from Debbie Bliss Simply Soft booklet. It is knit in Cashmerino Astrakhon. It is a very warm and comfy sweater so I am going to pack it away for next winter! More pictures here. Next; I have two summer-weight Debbie Bliss sweaters on the needles.

Hi There! I just joined and let me say I love Debbie Bliss! I am currently working (almost finished...woohoo!!) on the alphabet blanket from The Baby Knits Book and the intarsia baby blanket from Simply Baby. Hope to post up pics soon but there are some on my blog.

I finished this sweater for my nephew in February, but am just now posting about it. I think he looks pretty cute (but then again, I am his aunt) !
Pattern - Hooded Sweater by Debbie Bliss Special Knits
Yarn - Annie Blatt No. 4 (100% wool) Color 519 (a brick red)
Needles - US size 7, Bryspun circulars
Modifications - None except for the yarn. The pattern called for DB Cashmerino Aran which I love. But I wanted to do some stash busting and had bought this yarn last summer at the Yarn Lady Bag Sale. This was the second time I've made this sweater and for some reason I couldn't figure out the pattern for the hood. First time...not a problem. Second time, it came out backwards. Weird. I'd make it again. I think it's cute and simple. The only thing I would change is the seam at the top of the hood. If I could find a pattern for a seamless hood, I'd like it better.
I'm still working on my Rib & Cable Jacket from the Wish You Were Here book. It's been slow going because of my work schedule. The back is done, now I'm working on the front. I'll try yo post a picture in the near future.
