Hi Lucy ,just wanted to tell you about my granny square blanket,that I am making to be raffled for charity in November. I have used lots of my remaining bits and bobs of yarn. I then bought Parma violet a royal purple to do alternate rows 4&5 and sew together and border. Love granny pattern can almost do it with your eyes shut and it reminds me of my nan who taught me and who I miss. X


Oh my, I'm working on my own Granny Stripe and I'm totally addicted! Thanks for the pattern sooooo much! But what made me go ohhh and ahhhh were Little B's chubby little hands and feet! I miss those from babydom! Adorable!


Aww very sweet little B pics!

Charming post and lovely comments. What a joy to read.

I've just started crochet after a 45yr hiatus and you've given me the impetus to give it a wholehearted go.

Hy Lucy
I love your cupcakes.

This blanket is so incredibly cheerful, can’t believe it, so harmonious despite all those colours from all around the colour wheel, cold and warm. Love it! Can see myself making something similar…

Haven't been on your blog for ages as my life is hectic. But I have loved catching up on your progress with the fabo Granny Stripe, this afternoon. Thank you you gave me a laugh with your Home K&N. Take care x x

Hi There!
Absolutely love your blog. Since you ended this post with dealing with loose ends(!) a subject that is actually preventing me to attempt multi color granny squares and that lovely african flower of yours! How on earth do I deal with all those loose ends on multi colored squares! Please point me anywhere for the answer! TQ very much and HUGS!


stunning as ever x


I love your blog, Lucy! It is my guilty little pleasure I allow myself when the wee ones are napping. Beautiful blanket!


Hi Lucy, Ive got some pictures of my caravan ive just shabby chic ed!Thick you will love them, tried to send email but was bounced back where can i send them to you?


The blanket is very nice. The edges are like picture perfect.Is there any trick to keep each row the same size as the previous one? I usually got challenged on that part.

Lucy, My daughter and I so enjoy reading your blog. We like to quote you at especially happy moments- "heart-skippy goodness"! Thankyou for posting pictures of your beautiful countryside and vacations, along with your happy crochet. We also bought a Japanese crochet book. We have a market in Portland, Oregon, that sells Japanese books & food.
Every time we read a new update on your blog it feels like we are on a vacation in England with you! You have become a dear friend to us! xx


LOVE your granny stripes!

Just started my own, and love it so far! SO quick and easy after the first 2 rows!

Thank you for the inspiration!

Your blog just makes me smile and smile, and smile again. Your world of color is delightful and your excitement at life itself is uplifting. Would love to have the recipe for your "Fairy Cakes" or where to get it if it's already posted somewhere. Definitely my kind of taste delight! :-)

With all your busyness I'm surprised you even manage to make a stitch let alone as many as you do! You put an idle woman to shame.

Linda Ashworth

Gorgeous! Looks good enough to eat.


Dear Lucy,

I've been failing monstrously with ripply patterns in books and things that I liked, I really don't know why I didn't try yours first. I've been reading your blog for over a year now and I just wanted to say thank you. Thanks a million! Your step by step photo tutorials and tips and drawings and bits are really truly helpful. I started making my ripply practice blanket with a disgusting variegated yarn, but I have the hang of it now. I think I might even be ready to shop for colours.
Thank you again for your amazingly awesome crocheting magic =D

You're bloggy bits have even inspired me to start making a baby granny for my first nephew who will be joining the land of the breathing sometime in October. Hopefully I finish it by then.



this is the web..the living green wall was great ..it smelled very lush and tropical..the recycled chandeliers were fab-u-lous..but hey i think our lifestyle is pretty cool too!


good on you for creating your own knit n natter..i created my own knit in public day on sat 12.6.10..however it was a tad early..6.30am on the train to london!!!by hey i enjoyed it guilt free knitting for 2 hours..the sox are well on the way!!!

Love your work. Beautiful colors and design, so uplifting.
I just finished my first granny blanket and now I don't know what to do...but found your beautiful blog and inspired to continue crocheting something pretty.
Have a lovely monday.

So lovely! Have you ever made a blanket like this out of cotton yarn? I just got a bunch of lovely cotton stuff from someone and haven't crocheted in a while. This makes me want to give knitting a rest and make a granny strip blanket of my own but I dearly love the cotton.
