Hi Lucy! I have been following your blog for a year or so now and have been so inspired by your work! I have made a couple of baby blankets based on the Summer Garden Granny square and have gotten rave reviews! I am going to try post links to the photos I took, which are on facebook, don't know if you'll be able to see them or not, let's give it a go:

I actually made these to use up leftovers from other projects and I don't have any babies to give them to - I was wondering how you feel about people selling items made from your patterns. Is that okay with you or do you prefer that we not?

Hello,
first of all I must tell you how much I appreciate your blog and how inspired I always get after a visit. Thank you! I just finished a bag inpired by you, and a few days back I learned how to ripple, so much fun! I´m planning one ripple project and one granny-square project. Found a shop today actually, in my hometown, selling Rowan yarn and OH, MY, GOD! I´m in love. Must buy lots and lots for my blankie.

Hi Lucy.

I finally finished my crochet bag from your pattern (which I started in February!! Pesky life getting in the way of things again). You can see it here
on my blog or in my flickr group.

I love your blog. A total inspiration and your patterns have saved my crochet sanity!!

Thank you.

I have been following your blog for a little while now and love your photos and cheery chatter. I wish I had your eye for colour! Here is my very small effort, although I am a little disappointed with the photo. The colours just aren't the same as the real thing! Keep up the good work!

hey Lucy-
I hope this isn't a repeat- but I wanted to let you know that I did a post showing the bag I made with your pattern. Please go here-http://suppliesoverflowing.blogspot.com/

and scroll down to see it. If you scroll further down, you will see an older post where I introduced it.
I do love the bag- and I have gotten compliments on it.
Thank you for the directions, and for providing the extra help that I required.

Why don't you create a flickr group for things inspired by your blog? Then we could all add our pics?

I haven't crocheted much in the last 3 years since i got bit by the quilting bug but i'm so glad i found your blog as i am loving every. single. little. stitch. of my Attic24 inspired flower blanket. I was planning on finishing it on my holidays in June but think i'm too far along now as i can't leave it alone!! Never mind, will come with something else for my hols.

Hi Lucy - I've never commented here before, but have been a regular lurker for a long time. I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful blog, beautiful crafting, lovely photos, and for giving me the confidence to give crocheting a try. The result of my latest attempts are here:http://www.flickr.com/photos/kittywrinkle/3555513105/

Thanks again.

Kitty :-) x

Kris

Dear Lucy! I found your blog by "accident", when I was desperatly searching the web for chrochet patterns that was easy to understand. You see, I'm Norwegian, and there's not a lot of good norewgian chrochet patterns. Anyway I had just (almost finished) a granny blanket, and was looking for something differnt to chochet...and then .amazingly I found your blog :-)) No I have to peek in here every day. Love your colours, and I love that you so willingly share your own patterns with us. Thank you.

Anyway, I have never posted on the web before, but here are a photo of a ripple blanket just started

Hi Lucy,

I came across your blog via your Hexagon How-to via Ravelry, I believe. You know, via web surfing.

I'm making said Hexagon afghan in brights and black, for a friend. Her mother was a knitter and when she passed away, my friend gave me some of her yarn. I'm making a Hexagon afghan for her using her mother's yarn.

I've set up a page at http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Redisforpassion/hexagon-how-to and will send you pics when done.

Thanks for sharing. And for embracing color and pattern so fully.

Hi Lucy

Hi Lucy,

Thank you, thank you!! I just finished a granny square baby blanket, learning from your tutorials. I've wanted to learn for some time, and your instructions were so clear, I can't thank you enough!! Before last week, I had only crocheted a chain, and now, my little one has a new, colorful blanket :-)

Really, truly, you're an inspiration!

Thanks again, and here's my blog address, including tonight's post with pics of the blanket ;-)

Cheers!!

G'day Lucy
I've been following your blog for a month or too... long enough to get myself a bit of a yarn stash [again...].
I came by your place originally for the Art Quilting style of things but you soon got me crocheting again & I even 'blamed' you for it on one of my entries... ha ha - like I need someone to 'make' me return to my old craft love.
Of course that lead me to looking for some patterns [free of course on the net] ohhh how the Angels heard me for I found heaps & heaps of interesting stuff... just ask Google & it will find... Now I'm mad about Hyperbloic Crochet... will it ever end... I do hope you have the time to pop on over to my place I'd love to hear from you... OOroo... Bethel of Bethania

Hi Lucy,
I'm Kate from Texas in the USA. I've been crocheting for years, but you and your absolutely charming blog have led me out of the dull world of pastels and earth tones!

I don't know why I never put such amazing colors together before...but you have opened up a whole new world to me.

You are so adorable in the way you express yourself and let us into your life. I could just hug the stuffings out of you and kiss you right on the cheek!

You make me feel so happy just reading your blog... thank you, sweet girl. Kate
