Got my yarn yesterday and couldn't wait to start...like I thought, I have a real problem changing colors....how to hold, how to connect the new color........I watched your you tube tutorial, but I just love this and want it to turn out beautiful.....had to convert some terms, but got that. I too love your color sense........can't wait to finish this and start another.......this yarn is yummy......crochets nicely. Thank you for sharing this and the Wool Warehouse. Their prices were wonderful and shipping was very swift....I'm in the US........again thanks. And any help with change of colors........but I will continue to do what I'm doing, trying real hard and loving every moment of this......Thanks again for sharing all this.......have been following you for years.......gloria g. in north Florida

Lucy, I just wanted to sincerely thank you for such a fantastic, easy peasy, fast growing, beautiful pattern! I love all of your patterns and have made several blankets from them! My favorite was the cosy stripe but now that I am working on the hydrangea pattern I believe it's now my favorite pattern with the cosy stripe running a close 2nd to it!! Have a wonderful & colorful day Lucy! :)

Leslie

Such a stunning pattern! I love the little blossoms that appear in each row, and a completely yummy color palette! I've ordered my yarn pack! Wondering: are there instructions for sizing the blanket up/down in the printed pattern? Thanks for another gorgeous project!

Lucy, I've been here quite a lot lately, but haven't left any comments. I've been staying in the States with a friend since last November and have been refreshing her knowledge of knitting and crochet. (I have been absent from my blogs for quite a long time, but am feeling ready to resume, and I hope that will be soon.)

I'll be posting one of these days with pictures, but am not sure yet when I will do thatl When I do, though, I would like to re-post this post of yours, if that's ok with you.

My friend has been working on a Cosy Stripe blanket using nine colours. She is pretty excited, too, and has also been reading many of your older posts.

I was ecwen more excited when I saw the Hydrangea blanket pattern and you are right, it's definitely easy enough for a beginner. So I purchased balls of three colours (well, I bought the yarn before I saw that the patter was up, then tried it to see if it would work) and have been working on what promises to be a very elegant blanket. When I return to BC in two weeks, my friend will be taking over this blanket and finishing it. We will Skype if she has any problems with it, so all should be well.

I can't thank you enough for your patterns; they are extremely well writen and easy to follow. I have a yar stash in my storage units (no surprise there!) and now I know what I will be doing with some of it, as I long for a blanket pile of my own.

I've had some ideas for other uses, too, and I'll let you know when I get around to trying them out.

I originally found you through Selma of the Eclectic Home and Life blog and I have talked about you and your work to many people since. I wish all this had been available back when I was working for Lewiscraft (a Canadian craft supply chain that is now out of business). My customers would have been thrilled, I think, as yarn was our mainstay.

Anyway, this is becoming a book (I'm quite bad for that) and I'll stop now. Warm hugs to you and I'm already looking forward to your next project.

I have to say I am also impressed by your crocheted basket and am making one for my friend to keep her blanket projects in. I'll be posting about that, too.

Take care of yourself and keep those photos from your walks and garden coming; I love my vicarious online life! ~ Linne

Holly

Oh wow! Those colors are amazing together. Absolutely stunning!

Kristine

Waiting on my Yarn Pack for this blanket! It's beautiful and I love how well you matched the yarn to the flowers! I've loved all your patterns but this is the first one I've purchased the yarn pack for! Can't wait for it to get here so I can get started!

Maria João Machado

So, so gorgeous!!

Jane Hansford

Now in a quandary! Just finishing the border on my sunny log cabin and have to decide whether to start on the Hydrangea or Harmony blanket. Will probably end up doing both as I can then take the Harmony with me when the Hydrangea gets too bulky. Thank you as always Lucy for making crocheting such fun!

Jan

Yippee, My pack arrived here today in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand. Can't wait to start, so love the colours.

Maggie

What size hook do you recommend using for the pattern? I've purchased it & it arrived today, but I can't seem to find the recommended sizes (other than "use a larger one for the first two rows.") Thank you! I'm really looking forward to making this, it's absolutely gorgeous.

Leah

Oh Lucy, you've done it again! Your blanket is absolutely beautiful. I can't stop looking at this gorgeous colour combo and the fact that hydrangeas are one of my faves is just the icing on the cake. I am going to have to make myself one of these blankets and soon! It's getting cold here in NZ so it's the perfect time to start another blanket project. Thank you, yet again, for being such a fabulous inspiration.

Happy Easter, Lucy, to you and your family. Wishing you a great day and much happiness.

gloria g. Walls

Such a wonderful thing to have completed! My projects never get to the end. Congratulations-it is beautiful and it is finished.

Deb

My oh my, I can't believe I have found you again my dear. I followed you years ago and somehow lost your blog. How lovely to get reacquainted. Thank you so much for your inspirations and loveliness.

Natalie Harris

Thank you ! My pack arrived today ,so pleased ,

Aimee Groshans

Lucy, I love your Hydrangea blanket. The yarn pack is on its way to Arizona, USA. Can't wait to start. I've been following your blog for years and this is my first purchase. You are so inspirational!

Thistle

It's beautiful, Lucy. I think this is my favorite color combination you've done so far.

Brenda

Hi Lucy, I love your new blanket, it is beautiful! I'm so glad you have found a love for hydrangeas - I remember a time when you didn't feel the love for these amazing flowers!
xxBrenda

Nicky

Oh my goodness what did you do? I saw the blanket and bought the yarn! I think your lovely blanket cast a spell on me....

Marjorie Sanderson

Thank you Lucy for a lovely blog which I find so inspiring your blankets make my fingers itch to crochet and your sock have help my journey with those as well with the book Super Socks by Christine Perry. At the moment I am under going chemo therapy treatment for breast cancer I can't tell you how much I look forward to both your blogs and the news of your families and the things you are making. Happy Easter and Thank you both

Wendy

Absolutely beautiful colours Lucy. I am still trying to get through the Moorland blanket so I cannot start this one (even though I desperately want to!). It gives me inspiration to sit down and finish my Moorland one.

Thanks for a lovely post to read. You are always an inspiration.

Jennifer Keast

Just loving a little run of lemon, sherbert and Spring green in the middle of the cupcake!!!

Bernadette Oconnor
