Just found your site. Love your work and the colors.
Do you have pattern for your sweet flowers and any special technique or tips on how you join your granny squares, being different sizes and all.

Thanks for the inspiration.

Lucy! Greetings from the rainy coast of Washington state, US! I'm in love, maybe obsessed, with the sweet flower granny square blanky! I embarked on my own version (I never follow recipes or patterns, as much as I love them...) a couple of weeks ago. All the colors swirling together forming little stacks of goodness on my coffee table is fantastic! Thank you for sharing your beautiful corner of the world! <3 Nancy

I've ordered the yarn and it should arrive any day now. Please share your flower pattern so I can get started!
You have such a natural eye for color and design! People like you and Yvestown, Sarah London and the Japanese crochet books are what the US ought to be offering. We seem to be stuck and lacking zing in patterns and color choices.

just a note Lucy to tell you how much I am enjoying following your hooky excursions. I am now totally obsessed with color combinations--a trick I use is to go to a fabric store and find a fabric which appeals, then scrutinize the colors used. I'm starting a 'Marine Colors'( turquoise, aqua, light greens, and teals) blanket for myself and will be making others for the family as well.

Here in the U.S., we don't have access to the Stylecraft yarn. Pity--such great colors. Ours here tend to be either screamingly saturated, or dusty as in 'Dusty Rose' 'Dusty Blue', etc. Have had to patch together several brands to get the colors I want, am still missing a good light true violet. Anybody know of one? (Acrylic)

A tip when knotting together colors: get the knot close (or not) then tug sharply on both ends of the last color used; the shape of the knot changes and the new color can then be slid right down snug up against the last round. Do the reverse if you are frogging--no need to untie a knot, just slide the new color down and off.

Thanks again for bringing such joy to the crochet world. There are hundreds out there creating heirlooms that will be collectible in years to come! I raise my glass (Zinfandel) to you!

Lucy--Your wonderful blog has inspired me to learn to crochet. My baby girl turns 18 this month and is headed off to college this coming fall and I would love to try my hand at the sweet flower granny afghan quilt. I know that this pattern is your own creation-- I would be much appreciative if you would share your pattern for this lovely creation. Many thanks.

Love your color combinations Lucy, and am trying my hand at a granny square blanket to donate to the local hospital. When my hubby was there for two weeks, it was so great to get one of the hand crocheted throws for his bed. It lent such a cheery brightness to a dull room.

I'd love to see how you make the little leaves on the underside of this granny flower, too. Will you share it with us once your blanket is finished? I hope so! Thank you dear, for the color inspiration and general cheer of your blog. It has lit some dull days here. ooxx

Hi Lucy,
I was wondering if you were going to possibly share your pattern for this. It is simply adorable. I have started to make the hexagon throw. It is going fairly well after I got the hang of it.

Thanx so much for this. Love your creativity and it is making it easier for me to learn how to crochet.

Lucy - wish you lived a bit nearer and I could join your group - ale and woolling - bliss! Also wish my B would sleep for more than 30 mins a day - barely enough time to make a cuppa - and now I'm posting comments in the middle of the night. My blanketing will never get done!
