I am just learning to crochet and your blog is wonderful. Your demonstration are really clear and precise. Thank you so much for taking the time and helping a newbie to crochet

Ditto on everything said by others !( easy way out ). I was looking for a pretty but easy granny and this is it. Flowery but not complicated. Going to grab my hook now !!!

Hello,
I'am french and I would like to know the exactly name of your yarn. It's really beautiful. I really feel like you about colours. It's "physical". I dream about them and I wake up with them... and my husband of course...
Very very beautiful work and thanks for your answer.

I love love love this blanket! And the combination of big squares mixed in is lovely!

I've been working on a summer garden granny square blanket (with some large squares mixed in like this) for... I'm sad to say... over a year. BUT I'm almost done with the squares and now I'm thinking, "Oh dear, now what?!"

So my question is... how do you decide how to stitch them together? I've laid them out so many times but I can't seem to make any decisions. Do you try to balance out the colors at all? I tried to do same-ish amounts of each color, but now I don't know what to do! Help?

teejay

what I'd like to know, is how did you determine how much of any one color you'd need? Buying the wrong amount of yarn colors can be disastrous to billfold and project!

...and thanks for discussing your color theory. I'd been looking through your posts to find it and stumbled across it. I've always thought there is something special about your work because of your color choices... have you thought of WRITING A BOOK ABOUT COLOR IN CROCHET? I think it would be very well received. Not many of us have the color education you've had and would benefit enormously, and be far more likely to end up with projects we ADORE rather than just being "satisfied" with them.

think about it will you?

Dear Lucy,hello!I really love everything you do,and truly appreciate the fact that you share your knowledge with us...We're having our 1st baby next March,and I would like to crochet a white,romantic,(probably cotton), blanket.Is it convenient for you to suggest possible "designs"?I love granny squares,but a ripple made blanket would do just fine.(I'm already crocheting your multi coloured ripple blanket,that's why I'd like a white one).Forgive me for my english,since I'm not native speaker.Thank you very much in advance!

Sandra Huwaidi

thank you so much. I made two crotchet flowers last night in about 1/2 hour. I have since looked at all your patterns. It sent shivers of excitement through me seeing all the beautiful that you have done. I am in Australia and starting school holidays. I am going out tomorrow to get more bright wool to do all your projects. Your a clever woman. Sandra

Anna

I've never commented on a blog before but now I simply had to. Stumbled upon this post looking for something I can crochet for a friend who's pregnant. (Want to make a blanket for the baby.) Blown away by the lovely dreamy happy blankets! Thank you for sharing your works and the lovely photos. I feel so inspired. /Anna, Sydney Australia

Penny Boden

The colours you use are outstanding. I am about to try your hexagons!

Lucy,

thank you!!

How lovely to see your gorgeous blankets put to good use on your sofa! And how great that you must have a very wool tolerant hubby - inspired by your fabulously colourful crochet I've started my own blanket (as I think loads of other have too!), but sadly my husband isn't so tolerant and is eyeing it suspiciously .... I think it reminds him too much of his youth!!

Good luck with your building works.

:)
