I won a free Debbie Bliss book over at Susan B. Anderson’s blog–love it! (Susan’s blog and the book.) The book is called Design It, Knit It: Babies and it contains some beautiful patterns but also encourages you to do some designing of your own. Last night I started Elias’ Christmas sweater from the book. Pattern is Shawl-Collar Jacket.
I wanted to do his in Scandinavian colors, so I chose navy blue, teal, white, and chocolate brown. I think it will be perfect when it is done…I’m rather excited! 24 rows done and so far so good.
I count on some of my other knitting books so I don’t make any errors. This time is no exception, and another Debbie Bliss book called Simply Baby: 20 Special Handknits for Baby’s First Two Years is helping me through. Wonderful pictures in her books.
If you are on the fence about giving knitting a try, check out Debbie Bliss or Susan B. Anderson. Fall is the perfect time to try it. (Don’t blame me when you become addicted.)
