1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Baby Bobble Sweater on: June 20, 2007 10:18:05 AM
Here is the Debbie Bliss Baby Bobble Sweater from her Cotton Knits book.  I have been working on it on and off for quite awhile and just finished it a few weeks ago for my younger daughter.  Because Mollypops turned out to be really long, I put an extra row of bobbles on the bottom and on the sleeves to lengthen them a little.  I did that by picking up stitches so that I wouldn't have to frog the whole thing.
I used some Debbie Bliss yarn, cotton/wool blend that I found during one of Webs big sales.  I think it was actually the recommended yarn.
Thanks for looking!

2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Mermaid T-shirt on: May 15, 2007 07:19:10 AM
Hello!  Here are links to my first attempt at embroidery.  I wanted to learn how to embroider so I could finish a knitted dress for my daughter.  Now, I don't know why I waited so long, I want to embroider everything!
I checked out the beautiful projects and helpful hints in this forum and was totally inspired.  I took a birthday invitation my daughter received, traced it, transferred it to the t-shirt, and used tear away stabilizer.  I was mostly happy with how it turned out, except I wish my satin stitch was more even on the edges and that the bottom of her face didn't look like a beard!
Thank you for looking and for inspiring!

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Debbie Bliss Embroidered Dress on: April 20, 2007 11:54:11 AM
Hello Everyone- In my yet to be finished pile is the child's embroidered dress by Debbie Bliss.  I made it in the recommended yarn, a cotton, but have been unable to complete the embroidery.  I've tried different size needles, different embroidery threads and have checked out Nicky Epstein's embellishment book, all to no avail.  It may be that I am just lame and cannot embroider.  Does anyone know of any good websites or books or can offer some advice of their own?  Luckily, I gave birth to another daughter since it won't fit my oldest!  The clock is ticking though....Thanks!
