Your square is gorgeous, and your blog is as inspirational as always! I totally GET the feeling of being too excited by a craft idea to fall asleep! Don't you love when inspiration strikes?


Oh yes oh yes oh yes, i think you've given me the inspiration for the blanket i'm going to make DD. I made a stripey wavey blanket for my DS who loves it to peices and everyone knows, you can't give to one, you have to give to the other child too hee hee, I'd love to incorporate your wheels design! Cant wait! XO


wow, that is really fantastic, i can not wait till you share the pattern, as i was reading i said i am going to crochet one, but i guess i can wait. I love your ripple blanket pattern, easy simple and relaxing to crochet, i am in process of making one...check out my blog to see...http://monikarosecrochets.blogspot.com/

Perfect square, great colours as always - well done you! Your enthusiasm is infectious... This could be the Granny for me (hopefully when you do the tut:-) - Thanks so much for sharing xx


That Square looks really COOL!!! I can't wait to try it when you post on how to make it!!! Please keep us posted!!! :-)


Lucy, I like your square much better. I made a couple of the original wagon wheels, from the photo you posted and agree that there are too many holes. I have just made a small square, again from the photo,with what I had infront of me at the time, which was some embroidery floss! It was easy, fast and it turned out rather pretty!

Love-love-loving the new granny squares... I'm looking forward to see what kind of yarn in which colors you're going to use.

Yes Lucy, I much prefer your lovely square design with less holes and it will be firmer for a blanket. I'm looking forward to finding out how you made it :o)

Oooooh is lurrverly!


Love the new granny wheel squares!


I do like your version better.

Not sure How I found you - possibly from Ravelry, but I love your work. I am so sick of doing cable crochet that I want to bury myself in Grannies. YOU are proof of why grannies are not the boring things we all grew up with. Yay!


Love love LOVE your new square! much nicer than the previous one from the book in my opinion!
and the allusion to "someone who gets it" made me really smile because I get exactly the same treatment at home :)


Gorgeous. Have you seen this yarn?http://www.woolaballoo.com/knitting-yarns/biggan-design/64-shades-of-dk-8-ply-merino-first-cross.html

I haven't seen it in the flesh yet but there are so many gorgeous colours - it makes me think of you when I look at all those shades. May be worth considering for your new blanket.

I think your square is pretty and looks easy to make. I think it will make a beautiful blanket. I love the choice of colors that you used for your squares (I like the colors on all your projects that you have shared).

The Wagon Wheel Granny square seems to need some work on the square part to leave the holes out. If one is wanting to make a square with a wagon wheel design inside - the wagon wheel looks good. I like the spokes and center of the wheel but I do not like the big holes for the rows that form the square either.


I love the way you said you'd stay up all night if you could, it would have taken me taken me all night just to do those! Absolutely lovely :-)

OOh !!!!!!! LOve it!!!!!! Woo hoo! I have the book that the original came from and LOVE your version- I hated the holes in the corner! I cant wait for the tutorial! thanks!


Hi, how amazing, I like your version very much better, and your use of colour, inspiring! Thanks for sharing glad everything is going well with you and the family. Love your blog!Anne


Love your new square! Looking forward to the pattern :)


Wow, Lucy, that is SUCH a good job! This is exactly what I was looking for in a blanket I have been dreaming about lately. Very very clever, and I admire your desire to create new, simplified patterns for "old" favorites!
I'm excited to see the tutorial, woohoo!

Love the new square!It's just right for granny place mats I have been wanting to make.
My husband doesn't get the crafty excitement either.
He just gives me the your a dumb flounder look.Can't wait to see more of your good work.


Wow Lucy you've done it again! I have crocheted the wagon wheel squares before but yours are so much nicer. I can't wait to have a go when you get the instructions posted.
By the way,I can't believe Baby B is seven weeks old already.
