Lucky me! I found your blog as a result of a search for *crochet flowers* to use as embellishments on my hand-made cards - your Teeny Tiny ones are perfect!

BUT just look at all the other wonderful treasures I've found here! It could be a bad thing, though, as I not only have an addiction to patterened paper and cardstock, but also to fabrics and yarns, all of which are bursting from their storage bins!

Oooo, I can't wait to give your Granny Stripes a try. And YES - I *can* picture them in a big, comfy, yummy blanket! :-) - Susan in Pennsylvania, USA


Came across this while trolling the internet early Thursday morning. I absolutely love this! I cannot wait to incorporate it in my next project. Thank you!

Oh Lucy, you are just so great. I have been following your blog for a while but have never left a comment because I can't quite sum up in words how much delight you bring me. Even now, no words can do the job. I just think you are ace. I have started my own blog now and you are in the very first post with a link back to you. I hadn't worked out how to trackback then though. Thank you Lucy for being so "Lucy" and so amazing. x


Just love it all!

Am now addicted to crochet!

Thanks so much lucy x


Lucy, oh Lucy... Discovered crochet 6 days ago, and like many before me, thanks my lucky star for finding you on the www. I still haven't got the tension right yet, but I haven't stopped for the past 6 days (dinner, what dinner? Kids? husband?)... And tonight (well, it's 2am now...) I have RIPPLED!!!! Oh Lucy... Thank you ;-)


Granny stripes! Great idea from you! Perfect.


Hi Lucy!
I posted a pic with the pattern of this granny stripe stitch, you can see it at my photostream on Flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/lauralrf/4636855328/
I made the blanket following this pattern and it worked fine for me.
Thanks for inspire us!!!


Hi Lucy!!!
I got it!!!! I've just finished my crochet bag!!!
A thousand thanks for your tutorials. I didn't know anything about crocheting last october and your tutorials were great help!! I can't believe it!!
If you like you can visit my blog and have a look at it!!
Thanks again from Barcelona!!


Hi Lucy - stripes are looking good, and loving the caravan shots! I've sent you a pm on Rav re a possible magazine article - just thought I'd let you know here in case you aren't Ravelling often (busy mom and all that!)

This is so cute and colourful! I have a lot of pregnant friends at the moment and this would be great for a quick gift. Looking forward to the tutorial!

I love it! I am making a granny chevron blanket and I love it. The pattern works up super fast and doesn't take too much yarn.

saw it and thought of your blog

Claudia Mansur

dear Lucy! I found a graphic of a Granny Stripes. How can i send it to you???
Thank you for sharing with us all your beatiful work!


Please! Post the tutorial! Take pity on those who stumble without help in the granny region of things!


Hello Lucy, actually I wanted to send you the link to pickles but I have seen I am not the first. Several others have already told you. You see, when we read about crochet patterns elsewhere we just think of you!! Have fun! Greetings from Germany.


tres jolie blog j'adore ce que tu fais...biz...sabrina de region parisienne.


Since I saw this I've been thinking about this over and over and over. I'm currently in the middle of a zillion crochet projects - but I can't get this out of my head! It is so lovely!!! I hope you do a tutorial soon!! Or I'm going to be trying to figure this out - probably without much luck! I love your blog - brightens my day when I see all your crochet goodies and bright colors. Thanks!

Sara GL

I am new to your blog and am so glad I found it! Your color work is so inspiring! I went to sleep with colors dancing in my head!! I've been mostly a knitter for years. I love to crochet but don't usually like the finished item - now I am inspired to crochet again - granny, here I come!
One reason I gave up on granny squares was that I found it impossible to hide the yarn ends without them sneaking out - have you any secrets for that issue?
Looking forward to your pattern for granny stripes.



I saw this granny blanket.....


I have just finished a blanket with some granny stripes, which I started about 10 years ago. The problem was also for me to get the edges right and I have to confess that my edges are really wonky. I should have swatched like you before, or even better, have waited for your tutorial. (And I only now realised that I have an instruction already at home for a long time and never noticed it - the Jan Eaton book which I own. Oh my, so so silly of me)
But what I wanted to tell you actually is, that I just started a Ripple blanket with your tutorial and it´s fantastically written, so very easy for me to follow, especially love your explanation of mountains and valleys. Thank you so very much for this tutorial, thank you so much for having such a creativ mind and above all for having such a wonderful gorgeous lovely generous and inspiring blog.
With the very best wishes from me and my hook,


Wonderful. I am going to start one right away! Just sat milk tankering catching up with your blog. I only have 4 other projects on the go but this looks like too much fun not to try at once........well done Lucy inspirational as ever
