Hi Lucy,

I've been a follower of your blog for some time now, not often commenting as I am sure that my comment will get lost amist the hundreds of others that you get each post!

Any hoo, here goes: I'd really really REALLY love to learn to crochet and I'm not very good with online tutorial thingys, so I was wondering if there was a book, or something you'd recommend me getting, to get me started and what kind of size hook and wool 'n stuff I would need, and what I would be best of starting with. SO MANY QUESTIONS! Eeek. If you don't have time to answer then that is OK, I understand, but I thought I would ask.

Your pictures are GORGEOUS!

And congratulations on your pregnancy. If you want to know what life is like with three (I think my elder two are the same-ish ages as your two Little People) have a look at my blog - although it's not as interesting as yours, I'm afraid! :o)

Best wishes, Nicola xx

I will definitely add some of my Attic 24 creations! I discovered the beauty of crochet about 2 years ago and then found your inspirational blog....aaaaaaah, love, love, love it...thank you!


Everything is just beautiful! And the colours..ah lovely. I specially love the blanket with the small flowers. Do you mind sharing that pattern or "how to". Kind regards from


Wow! What beautiful beautiful work you do! I love it! The colors and patterns are fantastic!

How very fun! I love perusing flickr as well - I usually subscribe to the feed and go there first in my reader, for a quick pick me up! I'm inspired to start - Thank you!!


love to see all of the colorful crochet all in one pic! so pretty!


How fabulous, I am sure when I started reading your blog you had just started your hooky hobby.......what a lovely pile of confections! Rachaelxo


Oh Lucy, how gorgeous they all look, piled up together! I have a confession to make: until I spied your creations, and some of Yarnstorm's, I never ever liked crochet. No sirree! But your stuff is so gorgeous I'm itching to pick up a hook and start some myself. I'm afraid it'll be too hard though :( Anyway, thank you for all the colourful and inspiring pictures :)


Gorgeous colours, I'm so jealous! I've yet to get to grips with crochet. I've tried a few times but it still seems like witch craft to me!



Hello Lucy, just discovered this, have you seen it? George


Goodness, all I have to do is get that crochet hook going. I've done one afghan, inspired by you, I can't stop now!


Your works are so much colourfull that it is a real happiness to contemplate them. You are really true when you say that it is a great pleasure to see handmade thing in a room. I share this point of view and attach more importance to handmade things than to bought items.
Colour makes life happier !!
Thank you


how very very cool off to join up now


There is something magical about what you do. I use a lot of color in my art, but other than that I dress in black and have a house in very 'safe' colors. But the absolutely love the way you combine colors and pattern and love and I can't get enough of your blog. Have a happy day!


What a feast for the eyes, the colours are gorgeous. I especially like the granny sqare cushion with the flowers on it. Look forward to more inspiration tomorrow.


Well done Lucy your colourful world is spreading out to all of us. I have just finished a version of BB - just have to sign up to flickr to see if I can display it!! Have a lovely colourful day

Hi Lucy - hope the tangle is unravelling a little. Thanks for your beautiful colourful pictures - they warm the cockles. My first 'baby' has just been delivered to University for his first year and I'm suffering withdrawal symptoms!
PLease can you tell me where you got your lovely stripy crockery? My boy would love it. Thanks Lucy.
