What will you find inside? Ask Rosy is a column that answers your knitting questions. Read an interview by Mia Pejcinovic about Debbie. See what Debbie has to say about her studio and working from home. She has been involved in the Save the Children Fund and enjoys charity work. Kate Haxell has an interesting article Knit in fashion: the 1980s about fashion styles and how knitting wove its way through that decade.
Enjoy Debbie's trip to Mexico with her daughter Nell. They are off to visit distributors of Debbie's yarn, Lorena Salas and Alberto Bremer. Travel along with them as the make their stops in Monterey and Mexico City.
The Gatsby era was the early '20s but the fashions are timeless. Get some helpful hints in Couture Stitches. Start with an up-close view on easy beading used on the beaded clutch. Pretty Pleats will walk you through the technique for the dropped waist dress. Then there is the Eyelet Rib for the twisted rib cardigan with pockets and shawl collar for you to master.
The same goes for the '50s when picnics where all the rage. Spread out a knit checkerboard blanket and an intarsia cherry pillow to go with the a drawstring flask "thermos", a caddy for cutlery and some fried chicken and chocolate cake. Knit yourself a modern vintage look crew neck short sleeve, pullover style sweater with or without stripes. The only thing missing is the poodle skirt.
Debbie is also known for her children's knits and there are plenty of country looks to enjoy. Waistcoat is an adorable little boy's vest that can be casual or for dress. The Sleeveless Dress worked in eco baby in the cowslip color is too cute not to knit. There are designs for newborn to seven years.
These are only some of the 33 patterns within the magazine. I am curious as to what knitting styles this decade will be remembered for. This magazine would be perfect sticking out of an Easter basket.
