Hello, Sweet Lucy! I love this blanket, and I think I'm actually going to give it a try when you post your pattern...it looks like I could maybe do it! Did you see this pattern?:
I like yours better with the zig-zaggy effect...Happy weekend!xoxox.

Yay - beautiful photos as usual and good colours too. My most recent opped granny square stripe blanket is here which gives a heart shape and the clusters have been split.

and another over here opped nearly a year ago with about 4 triple trebles I think..


Just to give your creative mind another workout ;P


Nice and beautiful colors :-)

Do you want to win a great silk shawl?


It's wonderful. I was looking for something different, so I'll keep a close eye on this...

Hey Kiddo-

I must be getting seriously old...he-he... I know I looked here before, but couldn't for the life of me remember if I commented. Don't want you to think I have forgotten about you. I stop by almost daily for my dose of Hobbit. So, to be perfectly seriously, you could hook a straight line in your colors and we would all be drooling like Little B..... chuckle-chuckle..... I do love this idea. Isn't it amazing where this stuff comes from. Out of the blue. Glad to see you mind is back in full swing again.

Keep us posted,
Kate - The Garden Bell

Dear Lucy,
First of all, sorry for my English, but I really need to comment after this post. I said to my husband that you have revolutionized my crochet concept. Using simple stitches and many colors, you gave me a gift for all my life. I used to search something like this.
I don’t know if you understand me very well, but I would like say this words. Thank you for your job and your creativity!

I'm just checking in after a couple of days off my usual blog curcuit. My, my, but you have been a busy bee! I love, love, love the granny stripes! I love, love, love the yarn recommendation for the Rico creative cotton. Why can't we find colors like that in the States? Well, I will email the yarn shop and see how much the international shipping would cost. Maybe I can squeeze it out of the budget. For those yummy colors, I think it will be worth it. Thanks for the recommendation. And I cannot wait for your stripes tutorial.


Quel joli blog ! Et que de magnifiques créations au crochet ! Very, very, very beautiful ^^

G'day Lucy from Western Australia. Today I was reading the June edition of Australian Notebook Magazine and on a page titled 'inspiration' a few web-sites are listed and your blog is one of them! Your blog makes me "heart-skippy" to use a phrase of yours so a well-deserved recognition. Congratulations!


LOOKS GREAT LUCY! Your so clever and smart too!!! Robbie :-)


Love your granny stripe idea. I have just finished a blanket which has a slight variation. It is a two treble block and instead of trebling in the gap between the blocks, treble in between the trebles. With each row a different colour you get a zig zaggy look. Plus it is denser than a granny and warmer. I am sorry I don't have a photo (or the techological know how to post one) Julia

Oooh yes! I'm quite into the stripy crochet look at the moment - can't wait for your tutorial


Haven't popped in for a while...and here I find you with a new little blessing! How wonderful... :) love your new stripey granny... I hope you'll do a tutorial soon! Blessings, Kate~

I wanted to thank you for the link to my flickr photo. I recently had a surge in comments and wasn't sure why, but I see the crochet master herself sent a few people my way. Thank you.

This is the first time that I've looked at you blog and it is FANTASTIC!!! So much colour and vibrancy! What a cheer up of my day!


I CANT wait for the tutorial, this is sooo beautiful


Oh fun, dear Lucy! You're an inspiration.


Another blanket started. I've created my own pattern looking at your swatches. I love how it is coming together. Thanks again for the wonderful inspiration!!! :)

I can't wait for the granny stripes tutorial from your Creative Mind....it is EXACTLY what I need to use up all my odds and ends of wonderful soft yarn. Your projects are inspiring and actually DO-able.

And I am so in love with your new caravan. Please post pictures of the renovation in progress!
