Dear Debbie Bliss KAL Members,
Carolyn has graciously allowed me to become an administrator for this blog site. My name is Kathy and I live in California where the hot sunny climate makes Debbie Bliss yarn perfect to work with. To celebrate, I wanted to offer as a gift 6 skeins of brand new Debbie Bliss baby Cashmerino yarn in her classic robin's egg blue to the first person who comments to this post! Be sure to send me an email to with your mailing information after you leave your post.

More surprises coming in the future!

Hello, I just wanted to introduce myself as someone new to the Debbie Bliss KAL. I thought I'd post a photo of a Fair Isle hat I made using some Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino and pattern from her book, Family Knits. I try to collect all her Fair Isle patterns and admire every single one. Two years ago I found a copy of her "Traditional Knitting from the Scottish and Irish Isles" and even though I haven't tried one pattern, I just love looking at the photos. Here is one on my blog at Cherry Blossom Hill. I also thought you might be interested in seeing a link to a new Debbie Bliss book, Design It, Knit It: Secrets from the Designer's Studio (release date tbd).
