I'm loving these stars but i was wondering whether they would fix together well to create a blanket? Maybe a project idea to try out? I love the idea of a starry blanket :)


Hi Lucy,

I am a big fan of yours! I'd like to call myself a beginner with crocheting. The very first big project I have taken up is to crochet a bag like yours.

Is there some way i can follow your blog and add you into my list?

Love and regards,


Hi there, I love all your lovely crochet, I also crochet, you are so inspiring, I also live in North England (Lancashire)


I LOVE your blog! Your yarn is all so bright, colorful and pretty! What brand do you use and what fiber content? I'm having trouble finding yarn that I love to use. Thanks!


love these stars and i keep giving them a try. still not getting it. i seem to be missing something. but then again, i only crochet scarves. however i have mastered your mini flowers


Hi Lucy,

I discovered you a few weeks ago, having been pointed this way by a post on a web forum. I love your amazing creativity and your happiness and delight in everyday life, keep it up and all the best!

vanessa @ do you mind if i knit

Thanks so much for the link to the pattern Lucy, what a great find these are! Yours look truly gorgeous. And your bump! You look fit to burst, I'm surprised you can manage to do anything, you must be so looking forward to the moment you meet the newest member of your family. I had a look at your link to your mat, which was very interesting, as it uses yarn, which I have plenty of, instead of cutting up woollens, which is time consuming and painful on my hands and wrists. Maybe I'll look into that when I'm done on my rag rug latest, for which I'm still cutting up rags. Anyway, hope you're well? Love Vanessa xxx


Lovely stars! I too love that middle-of-the-night feeling :)


oh, I am so like you! as soon as I saw these I had to grab some fun colors and start making a bunch. Then I ran around the house joyfuly exclaiming "look at my stars look at my stars!" then are now hanging beautifully in the kitchen :) Thank you for celebrating color and joy in life,


Wow! That is just the kind of pattern I was dreaming of but failed to find! Thank you so much for the link x


those are so beautiful Lucy, i love them, love them...
i see you have a your pretty flowers planted..cant wait to see that also..

Lucy, I love your blog, sooo inspiring, and you have such a lovely disposition! I've just started my own blog www.sparkyfizz.typepad.com and I'm terrified! Wondered if you would do me the honour of taking a look and giving me some constructive criticism, if you can find some time please?? I've put you on my favourites list. Long may you continue....


Love this idea! Thank you so much for the link - I've already made many in red and white for a holiday garland across the mantel. Thanks again.


Dear Lucy,

Thank you for brightening my day with your artworks and blog. Very inspiring!
The photos, especially at flickr, look great. I was wondering what camera do you use?

Lucy your stars are lovely & so typical of the Lucy style that we all love... dohope Bump24 let you get some well deserved rest over the w/e... OOroo... B


Lucy Lucy Lucy, You made me smile...I just love your blog. I did go over to the Royal Sisters, and already made two stars. Thanks for sharing and I hope you get some rest now. Alaska

Becky Cochran

Lucy will you a tutorial on the stars? I so enjoy your blogs and tutorials, hope you and the bump are doing well. Stay warm and cozy!


You have mentioned rowan cotton on several projects - and that it has been discontinued. I love working with cotton but I have trouble understanding the weights and guages.

What weight do you use for most of your projects. ----sport, fingering - worsted ------
What brand do you now love.....
I want to find one brand that I can afford, and be able to keep a stock of.

jan coyle

thank you very much......just when I thought it was safe to put away the hooks along comes another just gotta do project and more blogs and links to boot. Definately a stash buster and a way to get all those little balls of yarns I just can't bear to throw away all used up. I have some gorgeous bits of leftover feathers in a sparkly winter white and some rainbow coloured eyelash. I see lots and lots of sparkly stars are in my future.
