I just found your website and am thrilled. I wonder if you can help me find a pattern for a lovely afghan that I have pictured. It was done long ago and I would love to have the pattern. If you think you can help me, I will be happy to send you a snapshot of this beautiful piece.


Love your creations! I wish you could decorate MY house. :)
Greetings from Guatemala City.


robin for everyones stocking. Fab lucy how do yo make time to post all this inspiring stuff?


I'm so excited that I have found your lovely blog. It is so interesting to hear about the day to day lives of people who live in such a different country to mine. Where your outlook is all greenery and Autumn colours and misty grey skies mine is, more often than not, bright blue skies and blistering sun and brown, brown grass.
You have inspired me to get on to my blog and tell the world whay MY world is like.


I can not believe you can crochet a 5-round granny in 11 minutes!!! I have been crocheting for 30ish years and I can't crochet that fast!
Love the crochet birds - will be trying that once your tutorial is up.

The baby granny is really coming along. Love the colors. And the little birdies are to cute.


Great! I like very much your blanket. it's really beautiful!


Woo-hoo you've been to Ilkley!
You should have said, I would have come and had a coffee with you ( I live all of ten minutes walk from Asquiths -- and the wool shop)


I am always very pleased to read your post, and when I saw the little bird, I was very excited an I wanted to do the same. It was not very easy, but yesterday night it was finished. You can see it on my blog ... where I write a lot of good things about "Attic24". See you later.


I recently discovered your blog and am so glad that I did.

I love crocheting and your WiP are very inspiring! I love the colors you used. I'm currently working on a granny square afghan, but your photos make me want to start up a ripple blanket. They're so pretty.

Oh, and I remember being very confused by WiP as well!


It all looks absolutely lovely. That book is great! No plans for more little ones here, but I may have to get the book for hand-made presents! Hope you and hubby had a wonderful fire & dinner.

You make me smile haha! i to had trouble working out what WIP ment but with all the blogs i read it did not take me long. lovely post, that fire sounds good i would love a open fire soooo cosy mmm. Happy hooking!


Your blog is the first thing I look at! Can't wait to see the finished robin too. I sometimes call WiPs UFOs (unfinished objects!!)If brown feels odd just look on it as chocolate- yummy.


Lucy ~ your WIPs are looking good! I love the baby blanket it looks just right for snuggling and will be gorgeaous when it is finished. Like everyone else I am excited about the little birdie tutorial and can't wait to get started on a few birdies of my own. Am also looking forward to seeing your little robin too. Hope you managed to get all your houseworky tasks done before your husband got in ~ I'm the same I sit down 'wasting time' crocheting and blogging and then run around like a mad woman trying to get all the chores done and make it look like I have been very busy in the house all day. I am so sure that I am going to get caught out one of these days! :O)


I love your blog!


Hi, Lucy!
That´s a light, gorgeous post to read!! I enjoyed it a lot! (and if YOU didn´t know what WIP was, imagine ME, a Brazilian person... rsrsrsrs)
Your posts became a daily lecture to me and fulls me with inspiration and happinness! :)
I´ve done my first ripple and I´m very glad with it; I also made the circle scarf and the hanging bird!!! Thanks a lot for you generosity in sharing your ideas! :o)


loving your baby blanket, the colours may be softer, but it still sings! so inspired by you to try a join-as-you-go granny blanket or two for my girls. can't wait to see your robin!


Hi Lucy, just a little note from down here in Australia to tell you I love your blog!..really enjoy reading it each day..love all of your bright creations and all the best with the new bubby!



ur blankie look gorgeous as always. here are some other terms to share;
KIV = Keep in view;
KIM = keep in mind;
OOM = Out of mind (lol..)

i also liked the phrase "important but not urgent", trying to delay the work, lol..


Thank you Lucy. Your posts always give me a giggle and a hit of colour just when that is what I need.


Oh, those are cute little birds. I need to make them too.


I love the photo of the shop, it looks so very warm and inviting. I think some of the best shots are those where the light is not right!!!
The bump blanket looks wonderful


Oh your baby blanket looks soo lovely- I do hope when you have time to post the instructions to this blanket on your blog. I find yours more clearer than some of the books :)
You have inspired me to make a granny square blanket (as per your instructions) and I am enjoying it heaps! Thank you soo mucg - hope you have a great day!


Lucy, I haven't been in blog-land for awhile - and have to say that I have missed reading your blog. I love looking at your photos - always something bright and cheery. I wish my crochet skills were as efficient as yours - but it seems to take me forever to finish a project...so I have LOTS of WIP's!! Can't wait to see that blanket when it's finished.


Oh dear. I just discovered your blog (thanks to Alicia P.) & I am simply smitten with the crochet all around your house. It inspires me to spread my handknit goodness around the house!
