Dear Lucy hope you enjoyed your knit and natter time! You are very honest in your
posts and reading others comments about life with a new baby it is good to see the
support network. It brought back a
memory of when my eldest son was 3
months old. I was downstairs(he fast asleep upstairs) when I heard loud bawling.
I raced upstairs in panic leant over the cot, he immediately stopped and gave
me the most enormous grin as though
to say," Where were you then?" Thats when I knew there was more to it than
feeding& changing etc...
Now he is 26 and on Sunday he is bringing his girlfriend for dinner to meet
us for the first time. I just hope she likes us!
Love Sarah west mids.

Hi ya there,
Have been reading your blog for the last 3 nights, totally loving your work. I'm a knitter but after looking at your beautiful crochet am going to knuckle down and start learning! I have 3 kids 5,3 and 1 year. So very busy also but feel that the touch of yarn is so relaxing after a day with them. Loving the boden coat, i have it in the red!! Thank for inspiring me. Love the wool you got sent by jill eaton such a shame you can't get it over here.
Thanks again, best be off to feed my mini 1


Hi Lucy, this is the very first time that i have left you a comment! i LOVE your blog sooooo much. anyway back to the reason for my very first comment, guess what? i have just made my very first garden granny square, i learnt to hold the hook and yarn yesterday and today a granny square....amazing! and it is all thanks to you. i am soooo beside myself with excitement this evening...thankyou, thankyou, thankyou.
I have been enjoying your lovely colouful blog, and have been going back to read ALL your previous posts, you have inspired me no end.
i wish i had left a comment much sooner as you have given me much pleasure and inspiration but was a little shy.
by the way CONGRATULATIONS on your little baby boy, i loved the little photo of him, ahhh, makes me very broody.
hope knit and natter was fun and relaxing.
thankyou so much again for my new found hobby, if i wasn't for you i would never have tried crochet and i think i'm ganna love it.
kind wishes


Hello, I'm thrilled to have discovered your completely gorgeous blog via mumsnet. LOVE your sense of colour, apparently undimmed in the new baby haze! Will def be back as a frequent visitor. (Your mosaics are glorious, btw.) Blessings to you and yours.


I just have to say that you have the most beautiful view I've ever seen! What a great place to sit and crochet!


Found your blog shortly before giving birth to my 3rd child, on December 31... I love it! Thanks for sharing your creativity. . . I love reading your baby posts too -- I'm right there with you... All the way in Pennsylvania, USA -- but right there with you.

Hoping you get some sleep tonight!

Hey honey! Thinking of you! Loving the calender review. Our fave this year is the Countryfile calender - another very cute squirrel in there too! t.x


Oh I SO remember that utter muddledness and constant decision-making that goes with a new born ... and yes, my mantra too is "this too shall pass" ... it's the only way to stay sane sometimes! Enjoy your time at Knit and Knatter :o)

Lucy, I am new to your site and already I'm "hooked"! My soon to be daughter in law told me to check your site out for your flowers and leaves pattern, as she's opening a baby store in Nashville, TN. (she's marrying my baby who's 24!) Your site is absolutely beautiful, full of vibrant colors, incredible photos and the easiest instructions I've ever come across. I really think you should publish a book! I'm a craft junkie and she's got me crocheting little hats with clip on flowers. Enjoy all your days with your new baby boy as I honestly have no idea where the last 24 years have gone!


Hi. I love your work. Have you made a pattern for your circle and/or flower scarf? If y, I would love to know where to access it. I was up in the wee hours looking for it last night. I am going to try my hand at crocheting TODAY - - forget my chores list! Thank you!


Hope you enjoyed your crochet, coffee and chat. I don't think you should be worried about baby B, afterall, who can resist a new baby. Take care.

Hope you get to have a lovely coffee, crafty time - I am sure there will be no shortage of people willing to have a cuddle! :D


so lovely !!!


I have just discovered your blog as I have developed a love for crochet too, my friend bought me a day course to learn and now I am addicted, loving your colourful work. My little boy has just turned one and clearly remember the hours of constant crying with colic, hard work but the best year of my life. Definatley take him to the coffee shop I am sure he will gets loads of cuddles and make you feel more normal again. I know it helped me to get out and about when he was small.

Glad to see you are doing well. Everytime I have a cuppa tea, I think of you.

Cheers. xoxoxo


Hi Lucy! I love the idea of many calendars - I always end up throwing out my freebies, but of course, why not just use them as eye-candy? Brilliant idea. By the way, I remember from ages ago that you might fancy making a patchwork quilt (although I realise you might be a tad busy at the moment!!). But if you do, can I recommend Alicia Paulson's Ollalieberry quilt pattern - I've just made it myself (have a look on my blog if you have a mo!) and it's a perfect 'starter' quilt with spectacular results. Just one for future ref!

Erin @ SYL: Slipcover Your Life

Can't wait to get started!!!

Also, just added Attic24 to my blogroll! Can't believe I hadn't discovered you until now!


Hope you enjoyed knit and knatter x
