In love with lace

That's pretty much the subject of the new Debbie Bliss Knitting magazine for Spring/Summer 2011. And with her new lace weight kid mohair and silk blend, it's no wonder! We've had other fibers like this in the past - in fact at one time we carried 3 different ones, in a total of over 30 colors. For various reasons (price increases, wanting to deal with other companies, etc) we discontinued all 3 over time.

But now we are carrying
Debbie Bliss Angel and it's just beautiful. We are so glad to have this fiber blend back in stock. The colors are so soothing (although we have a few brighter ones on order) and there are some really great patterns for this yarn. In addition to a lot of good information on lace knitting, the magazine actually has quite a few great patterns for this yarn. This beautiful bolero ties with a tiny bow:
And this simple stockinette stitch bell-shaped tunic has a sumptuous scallop-edged lace border. Lace novices will love to practice with this quick lace chevron-stitch scarf: This drapey stole has breathtaking patterning:This cardigan with blackberry stitch bands is knit on larger needles and is extra light: Part capelet, part shrug, this is worked from the neck down: This simple shrug has a surprise lace paneling on the back: And this boat neck top with fern lace patterning is simple, but makes a statement.There are also lots of other non-lace weight patterns in this magazine. Come on in and take a look!
