Hi Lucy,
you are really funny. I see that you spent a very interesting and productive Thursday. Your "audience" must have been very helpful.

I really like your colours, this blanket makes me in a good mood:O)

Have a nice week!

Oooh, I am loving this. Just adorable having Little B's hand grabbing, pulling, scrunching. I remember those days. It's a wonder you can get a whole row done . . . ever! So sweet.


your 'blanket to be' looks beautiful! I tried some of your summer garden granny squares. I love making them and especially the way to join them while I'm am crocheting. Thanks for the tutorial with all the very clear photo's. And you made some very beautiful pictures of all those houses too. Like houses as an object for quilts etc.too.

I just wanted to leave a quick note to say what an inspirational blog! I'm new to this but love your writing and the photographs are beautiful. The blanket looks lovely! Would it be ok to add you to my friend list? I love the Knit & Natter idea - I'm going to see if there's anything like that near me in Hertfordshire. I'll definitely be popping by again, Helen x

Love the stripes!!! I am working on a baby blanket at the moment, but in the back of my mind I am planning my granny strips!!!


It's great that you went ahead and had tea instead of just giving up. Fight for the bright spots in your day. I pray that Little Lady is feeling better and that next week you can go and natter to your heart's content. We all need friend time.


Beautiful colours for your granny stripe, it's looking really lovely. I have been inspired by you to start one too, but it's slow going. Have a lovely week.


Hello !! Kind wave from France ! talking about your blog today on mine. I love your colours and way of life. I LOVE the british countryside......

Dear Lucy,
I discovered your blog on ravelry through some dutch crocheters last month, and I fell in love immediately! You are so positive and loving and creative, that you are really inspiring a lot of people. It's a joy to read your story's. Meanwhile I had the chance to snuggle into your crochet patterns, that I truly adore, and I made some of your famous cookies for the little ones. I live in Belgium and I'm as well a mother of 3 children, 2 young lady's (8 en 5) en 1 little boy from almost 2, and I love to crochet and care for my little family.
Thank you for all those lovely images!


Granny Stripes are coming on a treat! Hope Little Lady is on the mend x


I can not get over the richness of the colors you use. What yarn is this?

I just love reading your blog and i am currently working on my own blanket. My hooky hands are not as fast as yours so progress is a bit slow, but thankyou for your great instructions i can crochet at last thanks to you.

Hello from Austria!
You are a great artist! The colours are so brightly, everything looks so brightly. Your baby (the little foot and hand) seems so sweet. We are grandparents for a short time of a 4 months Little Milo. I often visit your blog, thank you for all your instructions. The "granny fever" has also caught me.
Kind regard, Sabine

Is this the perfect post? Colour, cakes and chubby little fingers and toes! Well, it gets my vote because it made me smile and be glad for you.

Late Saturday night and I finally have a minute to breathe. I don't know how you do it. Baked goodies and star in you cafe, come on. Can you bottle it up and send me some of your energy. I always get a little recharged after a visit here. Still waiting for my Lucy Pack, I'm glad I'm not still sitting on the stoop having a beer or two. I'm be smashed. I think they got way more orders than they imagined they were going to get. Didn't they know the following you have over here in HobbitLand.

Just finished a Rose Pillow with my dyed yarn. Should have up by Monday. Just was informed a surprise day with the MIL all day tomorrow. Doesn't she know I have better things to do like post and read blogs on a Sunday. I also have to figure out my next project. Oh, me, Oh my. What to do next?

Off to slumberland,


Hi Lucy,
I'm marveling at yet another inspiring post...everything looks so yummy, especially the baby hands and feet. Now I'm on the hunt for a fairy cake recipe. How do you get the star pattern in your coffee?


Hi Lucy! I'm another of your French fans, your blog is pure bliss! I just love it!


I am a very very regular reader of your blog , i open it everyday and have it on my side bar too , so whenever you have a new post i know it immediately.
You really write so well, keep up the good work and also inspiring bloggers like me...


It's beautiful! I like the colour!


Hi Lucy
Love your blog. Did I miss the instructions for the Granny stripe blanket.
It looks lovely cant wait to start one. Thanks for always making my day...Jackie


I re-taught myself how to crochet after discovering your blog ... I had six ball of yarn stashed away to make some granny squares (my second love) but started your granny stripes instead. In this morning's paper that same yarn is on sale at Michael's , so this is my lucky day. Thanks so much for the picture on what to do with all of those pesky ends ... I look forward to the next step - finishing this lovely blanket.

P.S. you should see the looks I get from everyone while I crochet this to and from work on the BUS! good fun!


I love the Granny Stripe blanket. My little lad saw me looking at it, and has decided he'd like one for his bed. I taught myself to crochet after discovering your blog, so a huge thank you to you!

I decided to respond to your request for a 'Crochet Along' and so, here I am, making a Granny Stripes blanket as a gift for a good friend of mine who is having her third baby in July!
Mine is all-white, done in a fantastic soft angora yarn (chain of 120). I've completed 32 rows so far, and I'm planning to crochet at least twice as much!
