Family Knits
by Debbie Bliss

Another book from Debbie Bliss with some of things you come to expect from her – clean layout, beautiful photos and classic patterns.

This book has 25 projects for kids, adults, and the home. The patterns are broken up into three sections – beach, picnic, and country – the background of the photos.

My quibble with this book lies in pictures. They are beautiful but sometimes it’s at the expense of showing the garments clearly. Like the collage with the cute kid below (hint – he’s not the one wearing a knit project). And some photos are pure art, i.e., a picture of a swing with no knitting project in sight. That’s nice and all but I didn’t buy an art book, I bought a knitting book!

Two of the patterns I loved were a cotton jacket and a rib and cable cardigan. I like classic pieces with just a bit of detail to make them special.

Despite my quibble with some of the pictures, this is still a good book with solid projects. If you are a Debbie Bliss fan, this is another winner.
