Hi Lucy

I love your blog, I want to make everything. I'm more of a knitter but I am crazy about Japanese Amigurumi, so I am fairly new to crocheting. You have tutorials of all sorts, but how do you make a 'basic granny square'. There are many DIFFERENT and confusing tutorials online. I just love your clear concise instructions and photos, so would really appreciate a tutorial for a basic granny square.

Love Salma x


well, i just ordered my wool...i'll have to send you a pic of my ;Hexi croched.. Monet pond cushion' that i made under your inspiration.. i love reading your blog,. you've inspired me.. Love Libby


Hope you don't mind, I made a link on my blog to yours for the flat circle tutorial. I used it to make a pillow and I love how it turned out. I have never commented before, but enjoy reading your blog very much. Cheers.


Wonderful colours....
Hope you are having a great weekend


The cherry blossom is beautiful, and Elmer is a perfect match for your squares! ;-) Jane


i love love love the little red ripply purse with a hook ine it! i am deffinitely going to make one for myself when exams are over the summer holidays begin!

Question: did you make the ripple clutch in your yarn bag?

You have inspired me so much. I love the way you use color. I recently moved to a new apt and I want to decorate it with lots of color. I want cheery, happy color. I just made your little birdie and he came out so cute, definately making more and bought lots of colors of yarn to make the hexagon throw. I live in south florida so everything I do is in cotton or cotton blends. I bought all these colors from Knitpicks in their sportweight, because they didnt have much of a selection in the dk weight.


Hey how r u. please visit this website www.edascrochetroom.wordpress.com you inspired me


i'm just learning to crochet... do you sew or crochet your squares together. i tried to crochet mine using dc but failed completely. any advice would be super dooper! thanks

Your new colours are beautiful!

Your colours are just gorgeous and are enough to brighten up anyone's day!


Oh Lucy! All your out-and-about photos make it look like you live in one of the prettiest places in the world!

Ooo, I loooove that colourful elephant. He's gorgeous!

Your pics always make me want to add more colour to my life. Brilliant.



Loving those granny squares - the three tonal outside rounds with the contrasting centres. Recently did something along those lines myself for a bunting...great minds and all that, hahaha!

Am planning to get some of that yarn myself once it's back in stock...wonder if they'll be able to manufacture it fast enough...??!!


Love your colourful photos. They bring lots of sunshine to my heart on a rainy day here in Denmark. Have a great weekend, too. :)

Hi Lucy,
Just wanted to let you know that your blog is mentioned in the June issue of 'Notebook:' magazine here in Australia.
It is referred to on a page (p.115) entitled 'Winter Cosy', and says 'A little ray of winter sunshine in this blog about home, baking and crochet'.
So ... three cheers from Australia!


Dear Attic24, you have helped my friend and I with our new crochet obsession...we want all your blankets and all your yarn....You are to us one of our crochet godesses


I dont know where I may have seen it, but isnt there a story about a patchwork elephant ? He is so cute !!I think baby thought so too.


How funny to imagine you and Little B both squealing over things that make you happy.


Just delightful Lucy! The row of blossoming trees are such a lovely spring image - it even reminds me of the beautiful cherry blossoms of Japan! Did I spy a hooky ripple case amongst your yarn? I am very tempted to try one of my own! enjoy your weekend
