What fantastic yarnbombing!!! So glad that you had such a great time! xx


I love the yarn bombing and gypsy caravans, how lucky to time your break just right. Your Connievan photos have brought back many happy memories from my own childhood holidays, how lovely that you are making those memories for your own family.

It sounds like a lovely break, albeit a bit wet and windy. I love the colours of all the kayaks pulled up onto the bank and the multi-colouredness that is Connievan's interior. Thanks for sharing your week.
P.S. I sincerely hope the cake tin was empty pre-puking?!

The little white knitted cottage at the old Victorian Pier reminds me very much of my own knitted Mysteria Lane Cottages. You can see them here:

We just opened the bakery in our knitted Lane :)


So you just happened to take Connie to a yarn bombing holiday spot hmmm? A likely story :)


thank you

Thank you so much for letting us into your life. I always stop what I am doing to read your blog. It is so peaceful. Would loved to have joined you in the cafe to do a bit of crochet but bringing the motor home into Skipton is difficult. We are at Bolton Abbey this week. Hope weather improves. You are right when you say crochet and caravanning go together. Easy to people watch from the window while the crochet hook is whizzing along. Can't wait on next blanket pattern and next blog. Thank you again.


What a lovely half term week you had Lucy. Your sweet flower granny blanket is gorgeous and typically Lucy with all those mixtures of colour and I love it. Connievan looks so lovely and cosy with all your beautiful coloured blankets and sweet little curtains. You were also near the lovely seaside which you adore - so glad you had a good hooky restful week. I am just going to start pinning my winter wreath together - oooohhh I feel a bit nervous!! xx lots of love Joy xx


Thanks for the walk! :)


What a dreamy holiday Lucy, I've enjoyed your pics from every single one of them, your caravan shots are so happy and cheerful, the blankets amazing and welcoming xxoxoxo


I love caravans and I would really like to spend some time on one. It looks really cosy and all the crochet blankets you have used, make it even more beautiful.
Thank you for sharing the photos of your holidays!


So lovely, I just love camping, last night my son was building a nomada shelter for school and I start saying how I miss camping, when the summer comes that´s one thing I must do, otherwise it doesn´t feel like summer to me. Wonderfull landscape, such a cosy caravan. Thank you for these postcards.


Glad you all had such an excellent time Luce ☺ Connievan is looking wonderful and so very cosy! The yarnbombing is ace! Glad you got to see that. See you soon missus, loads of love xxx


Looks a lovely holiday. Sometimes I think you remember the wet and windy holidays more than the sunny ones because you do more. Looking forward to the coastal walk post. We stayed near Robin's Hood Bay one ferocious October half term and walked along the coastal path before dropping down to the beach to look for jet. Suddenly the tide came in very quickly (it was our first morning and foolishly we hadn't acquainted ourselves with the state of the tide) and we had to beat a very hasty retreat up a near vertical and very crumbly cliff-face, my husband carrying our three-year old and me helping our six-year old. It was a bit sweaty but we survived and did lots of other fun things including cycling along the disused train line with fabulous views and visiting Jorvik in York, where the children analysed Viking poo! It is amazing what you remember of family holidays isn't, this one was in 1999 but right now it feels like yesterday.


What a lovely little break...you're creating some fabulous memories for your little brood! :) xxx


Hi, Lucy, I live in Marske, a short walk along the beach from Saltburn, you've made me look at it with new eyes, I love your blogs ,thank you Elaine

Such a wonderful holiday. I would love to do some of the stunning walks in this area. Maybe this year we will take our caravan there. Lovely to see the special memories being created with your family.


what a lovely holiday. It makes me want to go there!

Pam Wilson

Thanks for sharing this with us,it looks like you had a marvellous time with all of your photos.I remember when you were first making the things for your van and shared the excitement with us. Lovely memories, again thanks.

A lovely post. It is great to see a photo of Runswick Bay, one of my favourite books as a girl was set in Runswick Bay. Your caravan looks so cosy. Ours became past use and we haven't been able to afford another but maybe one day we will get back to it :-) It sounds like the perfect holiday, lots of fun family time, meals at the caravan and some crochet thrown in :-)


What a beautiful spot. I love that yarn bombing!!!

Winwick Mum

Of all of your lovely photos, I got a real sense of the wind in your last one. I can hear that sea breeze in my ears - fabulous! xx


Oh what a lovely break. I can imagine how delicious the iced bun was eaten outside somewhere so pretty. Sometimes things are just perfection aren't they. The yarn bombing is brilliant, such a great theme as well, one of my favourites. It's good when the littlest one keeps up with all the physical things isn't it. My smallest has always thrown his whole self into keeping up with the rest of us, walking, cycling, playing sports, he really does put his entire self into not being left behind. Have a good week Lucy. CJ xx


Just wonderful Lucy...your joy shines from very word and picture. Looks fabulous.
