About Me

How is your Jil Eaton Merino holding up? I have a bunch of it and wanted to make a blanket, probably a ripple and wondered just how pilly/picky it got over time. Thanks!


A gorgeous blanket! By the way, when oh when are you going to publish a book????


I love the baby blanket

Fruitful Fusion

It's so nice to catch up with your blog after being away. And hello, what's this? A bump? CONGRATULATIONS Lucy!!!!


I love your stuff love love love it. and was actually going to ask your advice on just this very thing, making a ripple baby blanket. I was curious how you would change the sizing and approx. how much yarn you would use! Any info would be wonderful and congratulations on baby24


That sure is a beautiful bright blanket - Enjoy the product of your labours.


Love your baby ripple, I am due a few weeks before you and think I might have to finally give the ripple blanket a go...:)

Congrats, beautiful belly by the way :)


had a bit of a smile to myself at this... both my boys have zigzaggy scars on their chins! the oldest one has higgledy piggledy hairs growing out of his now, as the healing was a bit haphazard too!
I'm sure it heal really fast!


it's gorgeous Lucy, and so exciting to hear the news of the baby - congratulations xxxx

It's lovely! What a lucky baby - it's a real heirloom.

Love, Love, Love it!


Beautiful blanket Lucy! I love the colors, and it looks soooo cosy.


First, thank you soooo much for the kind words on my blogg, I'm so glad you could read a litle though the google-thingy eventhough i don't trust it to give a exakt translation.
But now to the important part:
The babyripple is beautiful! and so happy! I really like when Baby blankets are strong in colour. When I make baby-blankets for me I go for quieter colours couse I like that but when I make them for actual babies I always go for the strong funny, laughing out loud colours. Babies love them!
thanks again for the comment I know it's silly but I 'm a little new in this Blogg place and it means so much to me, more than I though. I did do a little dance...


the baby ripple is just beautiful! I'm curious about your new colorful projekt. Have a great weekend.Regards from Sweden


Beautiful blanket for a beautiful baby so excited for you
Bikes children and hospitals go together me thinks...l remember it well hehe
Big smile and a tear of joy in my eye...love the way you write thanks x

Wow I found your blog doing a Google image search and I'm definately adding you to my bookmarks and links list!
So inspiring with your bright and fun, funky colours! I've recently been picking up my crochet hook after many years and you have inspired me to make a...something...something bright and colourful :)

I loved your colors!


this is soooooooo gorgeous!!!!!! I love the colours!!!!! wow!


Bought some wonderfully coloured wool while on holiday. Your blog is such an inspiration. Thank you for making me dig out my crochet hooks again. Can't believe how much I'd missed using them. Brought back many happy memories of my husband buying zipped wallet containing every size of hook imaginable.
I have that wallet at the ready!

PS Loving the baby ripple.

So excited for you!!!


you are truly gifted indeed. I discovered your blog via Dorset Cereal...

since then I have the crochet bug... I have already taught myself to knit...now I am teaching myself crochet. You have the most user friendly and clear tutorials I have found and the things you make are beautiful... I have just made my first four granny squares for my first afghan and I used your tutorial... it is really good. I have also read how you join the squares etc... now I just need to get busy and make some more squares to join up... I can't wait until it is finished... thanks again!!!


Love the blanket and all that it stands for. That bump is so beautifully smooth - it's amazing that there's a jumble of arms and legs underneath it! Glad Little Lady is ok now.


Beautiful colours - that is going to be one very lucky baby. glad to hear that Little Lady is okay - I think as Mums we feel these bumps more than our little ones. Best wishes, Pj


I love your baby blanket! And I also adore the flower you photographed with it.


Lucy what beautiful work once again your colors always fall together so nicely I hope Little Lady is doing fine
One question for you what do you do with the tails at the ends of the rows do you work them in as you go or weave them back with a needle afterwards what do you find to be best so they don't come popping through Thanks and have a wonderful day Judy
