I totally love this and cant wait to start. Silly question tho. Did you join in the new colours as you went or tie each row off so that you could carry them around and do the rounds as you went???? (I hope this made sense) Thanks so much for adding colour to my day simply by looking at your site... :-)

just found your web site by accident, there is no words to describe your talent, your home must be a ray of sunshine, all the best in designing more outstanding items rhonda from oz


I've almost finished this blanket. I'm making one for my baby that is due in June. I just don't know how to do the shell stitch. Can anyone tell me how? Thanks!


Just curious, how many skeins did it take to complete this?


absolutely love it!


I was browsing for crocheted hexagons to make a blanket.
Wow!!!! I am inspired and can't wait to start my version once my big holiday is over and I can buy the wool
Thank you so much for the inspiration

An absolutely beautiful blankie - gorgeous and happy, and I can see it is already well loved.


Beautiful hexagon blanket! And the ripple and the granny too! Just love all that colour!


ooo that is lovely! what yarn did you use?

Kelly Bassett

I have fallen in love with this blanket!! I'm new here and was wondering if you had a pattern for this beauty and the specific colors you used that you could share with me?? Please e-mail me at [email protected]
Thank you so much.. it's beautiful! --I'm a color junkie myself!


Oh my, that is a gorgeous blanket! And so is the granny square and the pillows are lovely too.


LOVE IT! you should be proud!!


I love, love, love this!!!! Did you also use some of the Rowan All Seasons colors? I am not seeing all of the colors in the 4ply cotton that you have in your blanket. I have some Christmas money coming and I would like to do this afghan for myself.

About how many of each color did you order?

Again, fabulous afghan. Actually, I love all the bright colored items I'm seeing here on your blog.



Absolutely beautiful, well done and I can't wait to see what the next 7 months will bring!

Hi Lucy

Thanks for your comment. If I am honest the old comments have been far and few between so am very glad to hear from you in such a positive manner! I dont know what I am doing wrong! The blanket by the way looks fantastic. It has made me chuckle over the weekend that the person I think is most wishing the C word to be quite far away actually had her Christmas come early with the Boden sale!!!!!!!! Hope it looks fab when you get it!

Love Emma xxxxx


So beautiful...the colours are a joy

Lucy - Just had an email from Boden about their sale. Those lovely cord coats are only £50.00 now. Thought you might be interested! Karenx


Somehow I have found your blog, but can not remember how, as I have been looking at your lovely photos for so long. The colours in your blankets are so gorgous it is making want to find my old crochet hook and start making my own. Thank you for the inspiration.


gorgeous blanket, love the happy colors you use.
that's on my list of things I would like to do... haven't gotten that brave yet though.
Have a great Sunday!!!
