5.0 out of 5 stars Does exactly what it says on the tin, 17 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Blankets, Bears and Bootees (Paperback)
I find Debbie Bliss books very comforting and reassuring to work from - you always know exactly what you're going to get. The designs are classic and chic and always beautiful, the instructions are well laid out (very glad that each line of pattern comes with the number of stitches in brackets, so you know you're on track), and the diagrams are clear and helpful.

This book contains 25 lovely patterns, and as you would guess from the title there are 7 blankets, 7 bootees, and for 'bears' there's a big and little teddy bear, a rabbit, a mouse in striped dress (so cute) and a little bird. There's also a pretty triangle edge top which matches one of the bootee patterns, a striped cardigan to match the striped bootees, Fairisle hangers, building blocks, a memory book and a big bird cushion / beanbag (amazing).

It's lovely that some of the patterns are themed with others - eg the rabbit and bootees with blanket stitch detail match one of the blankets, there's a striped blanket to match the toy mouse's striped dress, and more. The 7 bootees are all different and give you a great choice. All of these would make lovely gifts and there's a range of skills and time taken, so you can find something to whip up in a weekend or a larger project, depending on what you want. I've made the mouse in striped dress so far and it was really simple and quick, and turned out gorgeous.

Special mention goes to the teddy blanket and teddy slippers, which have a teddy bear face knitted on them! Really cute.

All in all a wonderful book, with lots of lovely patterns.
