sure the temptation is beautiful strong ... I have some wool that waits to be used and that I had taken for too complex pogetti that have turned into a weight instead of a joy

Hi Lucy,
Voted for you, as always. I've been following your blog avidly since the neat ripple blanket (not sure how long that is, but I suspect it's a very long time). I love the pattern here, as I'm a big fan of Feather and Fan or Old Shale patterns. I plan to knit one as a baby blanket, although my little one is now 8 months and growing far too fast for my knitting or crochet skills to keep up. I am working on a neat ripple blanket, to be his 'Story Blanket' for when he's old enough to read.
Anyway, I love this pattern and most of the colour pack, but the blues don't work for me. I love autumn colours and warmth, though, so I'll take the pallet, with the brown and greys and possibly delete the two blues. I'd like to add a few colours back in their place, in particular, another autumn yellow. Do you have any recommendations, as you have the colours in front of you and my monitor isn't always the best at colour choice. Or would the mustard colour do? I think autumn yellow leaves can be quite bright. I'm already planning a garter stitch blanket (squishes knitted blanket you can make, and it's so easy, just knit stitch all the way - definitely TV knitting) in nautical colours, so there's already a lot of blue in my conservatory (blanket land). I may, of course, change my mind when I order the pack after Xmas, and decide to random-stripe the blues, but I can't tell. My husband may have an actual fit if I order any more yarn before Xmas, so I will have to wait ;-).
Keep inspiring us! Love, Christina xxx

I voted for you in the contest! I am happy you're using a 4mm hook as it's my favorite size to use. I have a sterling silver hook made by Celtic Swan Forge in Washington State, USA. I am so looking forward to the Woodland Blanket CAL. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


My vote is in. Good luck. Love your patterns and love the wool you use. It's a pity I can't buy it in Australia but getting it sent from UK not too much trouble and the delivery time is excellent, I'm just impatient. Have a wonderful Christmas - I envy your cool weather. It is heading for the high 30s today here and everyone is melting.


Dear Lucy, I have not been commenting for a long time but I have been following you for almost eight years. This Christmas, the Reyes Magos will bring me the Woodland blanket and I am very excited to share this project with all of you. I love the color chosen and I know I will enjoy it a lot. Thank you very much for sharing. A hug from southern Spain.


Hi Lucy. Looking forward to this as loved doing the last blanket. Might it be possible to see a pic of the whole blanket to get an idea if what it looks like In it’s entirety? Thanks

Hola Lucy, me encanta todo tu blog, aqui en costa rica solo tenemos dos estaciones definidas que es el invierno y verano, pero en la parte alta de costa rica si hace un poco de frio durante el año, yo vivo en esa parte por eso me encanta tejer mantas. te felicito, ya vote tambien.

Corinna Mazzotta

Oh Lucy I can't tell you how thankful I am that you are also doing a random stripe order pattern!!
I love, love, love the colours of the Woodland blanket, but I don't like the idea of the colour story as much as I did with the Moorland (I don't want all the blues together), so I wanted to do a random blanket more like the Coastal Ripple which is my favourite so far. But... I tried and tried to come up with a random order & failed spectacularly! :-) So glad you have done the hard work for me as it was driving me mad trying to get it to look random!
Hubby has bought me the pack for Christmas so I'm really looking forward to making a blanket in all my colours!
Vote all done - hope you win! Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year and I can't wait for the CAL. xx




Vote done, what a beautiful blanket you have for us here today, love the colors and I will love to make one for myself.


Think I voted for you Lucy. I love this blog. I thought the British Craft Awards site very badly designed for voting. So, as I said, I hope I voted for you but it was a strange site.

On the Knitting Paradise Forum this morning,


there was a discussion that the Stylecraft Special DK has changed the weight of some of it's colors and that some of the colors themselves have also changed from previous skeins. It appears they are changing color by color, so soon all the skeins will be the new lighter weight. If you are buying skeins individually, instead of a pack, you might possibly run into trouble.

Can't wait to begin! Ordered my yarn pack today.

I clicked on 'comment feed' to subscribe but it doesn't seem to work. What am I doing wrong?

Jan Macdonald

I am so excited to know I’m going to make this wonderful autumn blanket with your expert help. I’m a crochet novice and I now have my pack of wool from Wool Watehouse waiting for 5th January. My Christmas present to myself. My silly question is picking up your tutorial as I usually follow you through your Facebook notices and then they are gone and I can’t find them again. How can I be sure to find you on the fifth and be able to keep finding you and the forthcoming pattern? I’m sure this is a naive question. Sorry.

Catriona Mason

Done, with pleasure. Catriona

Jo Kneale

I am so tempted by the Woodland CAL... for the CAL social as much as anything else! I actually have a blanket made in autumn colours already, but this stitch pattern looks so cute. Can I join the Facebook group even if I don't join in?


Love your design for this blanket, but pleased to have the random stripes option - thank you.

hi lucy, i have commented here a couple of times but have been following this blog for almost 7 whole years. I am from India. My interest in crochet started when i was pregnant with my son and i accidentally stumbled on your blog and there has been no looking back ever since. i have tried my hand at few crochet projects. bag, cushion cover etc. all credits to you for your continuous and colourful inspiration.i guess i was always a craft person but my general aesthetic sense has improved ever since i started following your blog. i feel limited by the kind of things i can do with crochet since my country is a tropical place and we hardly have well defined winters (south india to be more precise) and hence wool is not a most sought after fabric. but i keep telling myself that crochet can be an inspiration to so many things and one can try and play around materials other than wool. but i always hope i will atleast be able to complete one blankets from your tutorials one day (even if just a baby blanket). do keep the colourful inspirations and observations coming for people like me.thoroughly love your work!!!!!!! good luck for your nomination on the british craft award. you truly deserve it!!!!

Ingrid Meecham

I too am hoping for a woodland blanket size packet under the tree! If not I will be ordering on Boxing Day! Can't wait.


Voted for your beautiful blog, I love the inspiration you give with the colours. I have leapt and bought the yarn pack giving myself the challenge to make a blanket next year. I have NEVER picked up a crochet hook, rather nervous! Looking forward to having a go!


you have my vote from Italy

Jane Hansford

So pleased that you are giving instructions for random stripe as I too would prefer that. You have so much better a sense of colour and design than I have and I appreciate you sharing your talents as you do (definitely not hiding your light under a bushel basket!), thank you. I love the colours, a very kind friend gave me the pack for my birthday present, and cannot wait to get started on 5 January.


Hi Lucy, is there any chance you could let us know which colour yarn we will be starting on on January 5th? I am going away and will not have enough space in my suitcase to take all the wool, but one or two skeins will be fine and I would still like to start on the 5th...


I’m super new to crotchet and I’m actually taking a class as a birthday present in January. I’m going to buy the yarn pack and I want this to be my first project. I’m so pleased that it all stays on your blog so I can go at my own pace. It’s lovely to feel a part of such a wonderful community. I’m really excited. Thank you so much.
