4.0 out of 5 stars Blissful knitting!, 20 Oct. 2010
This review is from: The Knitter's Year (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well, the wife lives knitting but scrunched up her nose at the thought of a Debbie Bliss book. Her experience of Debbie Bliss yarns was (admittedly limited) that they were mostly man-made fibres you wouldn't want to knit with anywhere near a naked flame!

So this book came as a great surprise. The yarns are of course all by Debbie Bliss but not a man made fibre in site! There are no suggestions for substitutions (disappointing) but the patterns are all very stylish and have been listed by other reviewers. There is a good mixture of long and short projects, easy and more challenging, and of the twee and not-so-twee. So there is something for everyone.

Another disappointment was that the winter patterns are almost exclusively Christmassy so the book is not particularly good as a present for those living in the Southern Hemisphere.

Overall, the wife is very happy with the book and she is very much looking forward to a year of Blissful knitting ahead!
