Oh what a lovely story.....it took me back twenty years. So nice that you didn't freak out and helped him finish his buns. He'll remember that when he's a big man. The bunting is amazing. I've hardly knitted since I got the link to your blog from facilececile. I've made three table mats and finally mastered the perfect circle technique.....so pleased with myself.


I would love a pattern for the bunting also - I know it is simple but just do not know how to begin. Do you work from the point and increase or do you work from the top downward and decrease. Don't laugh at my silly question!!

The Fairy Glade

Hi have made some garlands and can now feel the need for some bunting as a second project to be done in conjunction with above. Fingers have this strange itchy sensation! Vision slightly glazed, silly grin on lips, man person not amused...oh joy! Need another tutorial...pretty please! Dev X


How gorgeous that your boy made buns all on his own! If my girl attempted anything in the kitchen on her own I would know immediately that she had been possessed!

The bunting is gorgeous too!

Sounds to me like that little boy is just a chip off the old block really :o)


Hi, I discovered your lovely blog two weeks ago, and can't stop coming to see your new posts. I must say I'm a huge fan, I ran buy some cotton last week and began my own hexagon blanket (75 hexs now ^^), and now I am so thrilled by your new blanket that I have already bought some wool to begin a blooming cheerful granny blanket!! Every day Im looking forward to see the next post full of lovely stories. Thank you for sharing so well your love of crochet and making us want to learn!!
All my best!


I am just loving your blog, having learnt to crochet at xmas with a Rowan crochet book! Your blankets are so inspiring, I have today ordered a selection of bright colours from Debbie Bliss to start my own pieced blanket.

Love the buttoned bunting and the cakes look absolutely scrummy!

I will be back for more... thankyou!


What a wonderful story.Those cupcakes looks
very delicious.And your bunting for the bad is fantastic.Really a great idea!!!!!!!!!
Your blog is wonderful!!!!
Greetings Regina


Thank you for your colour injection today. Those buns are just too precious. And the bunting - love it. The buttons are just perfect. I tried to have a go at crochet last night and had to admit defeat. Might have to make it my project of the week in order to get over my craft block!


Thx for sharing your lovely Saturday! Deborah at Webajeb


I remember 'baking' at about the same age as your 'little man'! Your crochet bunting is a delight! Rachaelxo

Ooh, what a deightful surprise to pull up your blog on this grey, dreary Monday morning and be greeted by cheerful colors, adorable story of the dear son and a dreamy landscape of hills overlooking small town. I can now joyfully begin my day!!


What a great story, so so sweet, I have all this to look forward to. And yes, i too adore the finishing touches to the bunting, you clever thing! x


I loved the story of the buns and could just imagine it happening. Your bunting is beautiful. I posted about my hexagon blanket today, following your tutorial. Very clear, thank you!


what a priceless story about your son! one to share with his girlfriends when he starts to bring them home!
loving that bunting!


A kinder gentler Gordon Ramsay in the making, perhaps? It's remarkable that he remembered all the key ingredients


Well, once again, you've made my day. Your enthusiasm, sweet motherhood, photography and incredible color sense.....your lovely stories of children and your devotion to your yarns (both stories and crochet) are absolutely captivating and motivating. I live in the US in Southern Oregon. I'm 63 in body and 23 in mind and am trying to keep up with all your projects. I've made your bag and a zillion flowers, making scarves with them mostly. I've tried your hexes and am determined to make some throws out of them for watching TV and hooking up a storm. Thank you so much. You've supplied exactly what I've been needing to make it through this long, cold winter. I'd love to send you some pics of things you've inspired. Blessings, Moonie


A fabulous, colourful post ...well done to the chef too ;-)


I think you must be the fastest crocheter EVER!!! The crochet bunting looks delightful as does the Summer Garden work in progress blanket. Oh I love the story of your little boy and his bun mixture. He so loves his Mum he wanted to make buns like Mum makes. You have a good un there!

Oooh, what a delightful joy on this grey Monday morning to pull up your blog and find a new post!! Made my day . . . the funny story of the dear son, jolly bunting, dreamy green hills and small town. I made your Lemon Drizzle Cake yesterday, and the family LOVED it!! It was literally gone in 5 minutes!! Okay, there are 7 of us . . . maybe I'd better make two next time!!

elizabeth of course

Oh the bunting is adorable! Almost as sweet as a little boy tryign so darn hard. What a cute little thing he must be. And the blanket is coming together very nicely! All that colour is making me think I need to go pick up my hook!


HOW I adore your bunting!!! what a great idea!!! and it looks so easy when you do it!!!
I might steal your idea for when I redo my work-studio area (I keep meaning to..... but it's all such a mess!!!!!!!!)

Your Little Guy story sends me reminders of my own kids when they were so young, excited over what they create and so proud too!!!

What moments to treasure, and I see you do!!!!

All my best!!!


PS yes, those two blankets will sit very nicely together!!!!!!


I have just discovered your blog and absolutely love it! I love your use of colour and the bunting is fab!


What a sweet, sweet post, Lucy. I adore how you can take a simple weekend and weave it into a glorious little story....a Lucy 'yarn' so to speak. The buns, bunting, and blankies are yummy, colorful, and total eye candy. Thanks for your sunshine today.


Okay Lucy, how about a bunting pattern for this Kansas Granny.........perhaps a link?
