Debbie Bliss Welcomes Spring

If you are searching for that elusive ray of sunshine this week, its right here, tucked inside the latest issue of Debbie Bliss’s knitting magazine, with thirty-three bright and cheery designs, each one a shining beacon of Spring.  The roaring twenties twirl to life with a smoking hot bejewelled turban gracing the cover, and sleek long-waisted flapper styles roused from F. Scott Fitzgerald’s, The Great Gatsby  (watch for the highly-anticipated movie remake to hit theatres in late May).  Debbie’s dreamy storyline is set on a grand estate complete  with sparkling fountains, lavish interiors, and an occasional afternoon game of croquet.  Candy-coloured sweater sets, nostalgic picnic and garden party attire in Debbie’s signature palette are a visual delight for the senses.  In this jam-packed issue, possibly the only thing missing is a scratch ‘n’ sniff strip for that almost-forgotten fragrance of Spring to waft over us.
