    I have just had my first Granddaughter and have knitted lots of Debbie Bliss patterns and yarn. Her patterns are classic with a modern twist and the yarns are so soft. My daughter in law tells me she is the talk of her NCT group in her knits. So winning some more will be put to immediate use ! Love Debbie Bliss especially for babies.

  4. Kirsten Wills says:

    Last chance to win this time. 🙂

  12. Jane says:

    I love Debbie Bliss’ designs for their practicality but with that edge that makes them rise above the ordinary and her yarn is just so lovely to use.

  17. sheila bound says:

    Debbie Bliss gives me the inspiration I need when knitting for my baby nephew,

  18. Lisette says:

    Debbie Bliss books helped me transform from a garter stitch scarf maker to a knitter that will not only take on challenging projects, but also teaches knitting. Looking back on my favorite Debbie Bliss projects, the teddy bear comes clearly to mind. I made them for my niece and nephew many, many Christmases ago when every other toy product from China came with a recall notice. I love that bear!

  19. Kelly lanini says:

    My very most favorite yarn is Debbie bliss baby casmerino. I use it as often as I can. Not only do I use it for my baby projects I also use it to make boobs. My mother had a mastectomy a few years ago and did not like the prosthesis. I found the titbit pattern (free on line) and have been supplying her with soft, comfortable and washable boobies ever since.

  20. Marianne Kitsios says:

    Like you say, we left the best for last. Debbie Bliss is the best! Who would not like this gift for Christmas. I can only dream about it, a SIGNED book from the BEST!!!

  21. Ruth Heaton says:

    As a newbie knitter this year, and without my own children or children in the family, I have to admit to not having used Debbie Bliss yet. However, my. Niece has announced she is pregnant, and winning this wool, would let me try something more adventurous than baby blankets and introduce me to what looks like the softest most irresistible wool there is

  22. Beryl Cartner says:

    Everything she does is just so yummy

  23. Wendy-Jane Walton says:

    I love Debbie Bliss patterns and yarns, so lovely to knit with.

  24. Mary Alderton says:

I have several favorites that are unisex, a striped hoody, several that have a square neck opening and button at the shoulder, a collared pullover. I am making a blanket by using remnants from all the garments that I made for my twin grand children which brings back memories of all the sweaters they have worn to date.
