Hello Lucy. I just ordered my yarn pack today, so I will be behind all the others participating in the CAL. I am really looking forward to getting started on my blanket. The colors are beautiful.

I'm loving the neat wave pattern, now I've mastered it. It was so exciting to do the grape stripe after all those greens, so I'm really looking forward to part 2. I thought I'd fall behind as I'm on holiday in February (no space to take all the yarn with me), but I've checked the schedule, and I'm away for the catch up week - result! Thank you for a lovely pattern, Lucy

Hi Lucy, it is looking beautiful and I'm tempted to do my own after I've finished using all my scraps of wool on granny squares. I've been following your blog for a few months now and realised you are a local and your face is familiar. Been racking my brains as to how I know you and wondered if you ever went to Christine's on Otley street? Keep on crocheting and inspiring. x

I finished the first 20 rows in record time; waiting for the next 20 is testing my patience! I'm making a minecraft-inspired blanket for my son at the same time to keep my mind off the wait... So very please with the colours and tutorial; great work, Lucy!

I am very impressed by your clear tutorial, Lucy. I was concerned about the long rows and possibility of mistakes meaning ripping back and/or sloping edges but am now on my tenth stripe, accurate and with neat edges despite being my first attempt.

Your suggestion to do one less turning chain, and making sure that the trebles line up, I'm sure has done the trick. Darning in the ends as I go along also means a tight neat edge.

I have now succeeded in my first resolution for 2017, my retirement year, to try something new and testing in my yarn craft.

Thank you so much

Loving this Lucy, thank you. It's my first CAL. I seem to be having an issue at row ends though... now and then I seem to run out of stitches at the end and as a consequence I have a slant forming on each side. I'm going to undo approx half of my work (I'm doing the double bed size) and see what happens. It's so lovely though, and will form the basis of redecorating our living room :-)

Sorry I could not manage to get the Moorland blanket started this week, but I would love to join it and hopefully catch up..

Awesome colour palette! Stitch choice brilliant! Tutorials really are fantastic! My first CAL- am even ahead of schedule- you're a marvel, THANK YOU!!!

Elizabeth Hill

I'm using stitch markers every 30 stitches. I'm fed up having to rip out rows, so this is making it easier to keep count.

Gee

have never crocheted anything but granny squares before and that was 40 years ago. I was inspired as colours are exactly right for my sister's living room that has a big moorland picture over the fireplace.After practising and tension samples on Saturday it now takes about an hour per stripe - this will be a labour of love!

Kat

Is it just me or does it look like there will be loads of yarn left over? I have done the 20 rows which looks like about half of the greens, and have hardly used any of the green balls. Might have enough for a cushion cover left over!
Twiddling my thumbs now till Friday...

My third blanket but my first CAL, so i'm very excited - even doing tension squares (x3) which i've never been bothered to do before - need a 5 hook. Wool pack arrived today, so looking forward to getting started later this evening. xx

Donna

I'm a little late to the party and just ordered the yarn last night. I love the colors. I'm going to practice the stitches(and converting) while I wait for the shipment to arrive in Tennessee. Thank you Lucy for all your beautiful posts full of lovely colors and peaceful, homey scenes.

Jenn

I just KNOW this will be quite relaxing once I finally get the pattern right. Sooo glad to see others having re-starts as well. Just wanna get past Lime. 😏

Great post 😀

Lucy. Thanks so much - I've had my very own Ta-Dah moment today! I bought my lovely pack of wool before Christmas (as a pressie to me) and have been stroking it with quiet anticipation of 6 Jan. Well, your blog duly arrived and the wool came out of the stroking cupboard and into the lounge. After a few false starts (practice runs) I've finally got the hang of it. I've never followed a crochet pattern before (all those symbols send my eyes a-rolling), but thanks to your very clear instructions and the lovely photos, I've managed it. Ta-Dah!!!. I'm up to the 6th stripe now and feeling very pleased with myself. Thanks so much. Hope you are feeling better now and enjoying your time back at the Attic. Jean.x

Jackie

Finally got to the first row of grape which is really exciting after all those greens and browns. I did get a bit tired of lime. 😄

Dee

Hi -
Thank you so much for this beautiful CAL.
I am starting today and have two of the packs in hand. Just to confirm (this is my first CAL so I want to make sure I am understanding correctly how to double) - the only thing differences in this first part is to start with 351 chains and also to add two rows (after instruction #18 - which would be in place of rows 35-36 - shifting rows 35-36 to 37-38) - so I would end up with 40 completed rows instead of 38 - is this correct?
Thank you,
D.

Diane Haithwaite

A huge thank you Lucy. I love this pattern. It gives a gorgeous texture and your colours are beautiful as always.

laura

had a stormy weekend here in Northern California and it was the perfect project- all 20 colors done- can't wait til Friday! It is a wonderful thing - people making the same pattern all over the world with great delight and joy! I cant put into words how exciting that idea is - Thank you to all who are my new crochet pals- happy to be on the blanket journey with you all!

This blanket looks gorgeous!! I love the colours :) Hope you're feeling much better now. xxx

Need to finish a pair of socks for my SIL birthday on 14 January and then will start blanket. Last year I purchased 2 packs of sunny and after 3 squares did not like it and did not finish. I am using the sunny for my blanket ant the stripe order for the granny blanket. Then I can justify purchasing the Moorland pack as there are 2 single beds in that room. Have done my tension square and am ready to start. Thanks, Lucy.

Jan

Thank you Lucy...this is my first CAL...asked for the yarn pack for Christmas...I live in a little village at the foot of the North York Moors on the east side...this blanket will be just perfect for my little cottage...just love the colours. I started as soon as you posted on Friday and I finished the 20th row this afternoon so I now have all week to deal with those pesky ends before the next post! cant wait...xxxx

Sassa Frohloff

Hello Lucy,
Thanks for your work. It is my first CAL.
Could you please check the colour of row 3 and 4. At the pictures it seems not to be Meadow although the pattern tells it. I think Meadow is choosen in row 5 and 6 and row 3 and 4 is a darker colour.

Michele Morris

I was a couple of days late starting on my blanket and had a little trouble getting the hang of the pattern when doing my tension pieces. (Needed two.) I kept losing track of where I was in the ten stitch repeat until I started counting it as "double 1,double 2,half 1,half 2, treble 1,treble 2, half 3, half 4, double 3, double 4." Problem solved and now my blanket has begun. Just about to start on the first khaki row.
