Spring remains in our soul all winter long so whether you are trudging through a snow-covered landscape right now or enjoying a relaxing stroll along a sandy beach, there is good news on the horizon for most of us, we have just over forty days left of teeth-chattering weather. Along with the familiar sounds of birds chirping or the sight of the first budding leaves, the well-loved Debbie Bliss knitting magazine has quickly become a harbinger for spring, and this just-released issue (pick up a copy at your lys) is as welcome as a warm breeze, showcasing an inviting parade of light n lacy fashions, cosy home accessories in barely-there neutrals, a charming array of kid’s fashions, whimsical softies that beg to be cuddled and fun-spirited canine couture that has to be seen to be appreciated.
In this latest issue, Debbie introduces us to two new qualities, Eco Baby Prints, a splashy fun upgrade to the existing line with ten variegated shades and Delphi, a soft cotton ribbon yarn dyed-to-delight in a dozen ombre shades. Let’s have a sneak peek inside and catch a spring breeze-
