absolutely stunning work of art!!

I just love this......

Cheers to u!!


I just found this beautiful Summer Garden Square. I am a novice at crochet (do more knitting these days) and cannot even guess at how many skeins of Rowan Pure Wool DK you needed of those 13 colors. Do you have an estimate? Thanks for your help.

LUCY, you inspire me to be a better crochet'er... through the years I only been able to accomplish HUGE squares. This time I took your advice and made several small ones for a blanket for my sister...
I have almost completed it, wip using the slip stich join method you so awesomely shared with us...I am planning on using the shell border you have described here and I am unable to find the tut you said you had done...

Eight rows of Grannying.

Three rows of shell edging.

Measures 95cm square.

I really appreciate your effort in making your creations public for the world to share...
They are all so beautiful, I aspire to have your talent!

Happy New Year

L*O*V*E your yarney goodness, yes from all the way in Lindon Land (that would be Lindon, Utah, USA). I am currently working on the hex blankey and I had used one color for the circles,looks like beautiful pok-a-dots of red, blue, green, yellow and orange. It is turning into my favorite blanket, but truth be told, I can not be satisfied till I make another with all the colors of the rainbow like yours. From one addict to another, Thank you and keep them coming1


Lucy, absolutely gorgeous - will you post the pattern for the edging? I'd love to add it to my own summer garden afghan! I'm trying to decipher what it looks like in the photo, but I'm sure it would be all wonky if I tried to duplicate it myself. :-) Now that I'm just about done with big blue summer garden afghan, I think my rocking chair needs a smaller touch of color - just like this one! Hugs from Colorado USA!

I simply love your color choice for your lovely crochet pieces of art!!!! I just started a few months ago and I´m totally in love with it!!! :) I must do a little every single day and I´m also working on two projects at the same time!

Bye bye and thank you so much for sharing your inspiring work with us!!!

Magnifique !!!!!!!


That throw is Just Gorgeous!!! I've just started my own modest summer garden granny afghan, though as soon as I started it, my little lady (3 yr old KJ) announced it was JUST FOR HER, and began counting squares as soon as I started on the centers, so I sense I'll be making more than one, lol!!! I love the idea of 10 x 10 squares with that fabulous border -- I think I will follow suit for KJ's afghan, since she's on the short side any way, lol, and then make a larger one for our sofa -- it's got a nice yet subdued floral slipcover, and needs a punch of some "Attic24 colours"!!! Then of course it will need some cheery round crocheted pillows... Oh Lucy you will keep me busy all summer long, thanks! Will post pics on my blog as I progress, and send them to you ;-) Cheers from Colorado! :-)


Lucy your throw is absolutely fabulous!!!!!!!
I can just imagine you dancing around the room
Thank you for sharing with us

I've been a silent reader and unconditonal lover of your blog for the last few months now but today I felt I had to comment. At present I am also make a granny square blanket although mine is nowhere near finished. I've, so far, made 34 sqaures and I have about another 300 to go! I too adore crochet and was astounded to see how similar our tastes in colour, style, interiors (and alcoholic beverages! tee hee) were when I first started to enjoy reading the goings on at Attic24. You inspire me on a daily basis and I just want to thank you for that. I will be starting up my own blog in the next few months, will post my link here and hope that you drop by to take a look.
Again, thank you for putting a little bit of colourful sunshine in to my days.
Stacey :)
P.S Blanket is scrumptious!


I just love it just love it its gorgeous girl


That is truly B_E_A_U_T_I_F_U_L!!!!

Beauty! Am trying the join as you go technique you posted and it really is fantastic.....thanks so much for the inspiring photos and sharing your craft. You are a bright spot in this world.....!!!


This is so beautiful. You do such great work and then take the time to share with all us viewers. I love it so much I went right out and purchased the yarn. I purchased one of each of the colors you had listed is that correct? I can't wait till it comes and I get started. Love your blog.


Not for the first time do I wish I could crochet. Wish you lived next door so you could show me how! I can't do the hooky thing, just the pointy needley thing!


The colors you chose are so vibrant and lovely. It will truly be an heirloom someday. Thanks for showing this.
