Oh Lucy - I know how you must be feeling. I've had loads of comments on this blanket from my fellow caravanners & at knitting club. I do however need the colour scheme for after the 1st 37 rows. It just has to be the same as yours - no other will do - ha ha! I'm going to keep mine for when we move to our smallholding in the very near future now. woohoo. I just picture it on my cottagey, farmhousey bed. My heart goes skippety skip too - you are not alone!
What will your next project be? Rainmbow crawling shoes for little B? :)
Keep up the fab work!


Lucy, your blanket looks wonderful. I find the colours you use soooo inspiring. Who said crochet was boring. Certainly not anybody who has read your wonderful blog. As a novice to crocheting, I've recently joined Ravelry and I'm just drooling at all of the wonderful designs on there.

Keep up the good work Lucy. You truly are the IKEA of the crochet world :)


I'm so hoping you still post a tutorial. I'm a knitter that has only recently learned to crochet from your blog. The only think I've ever crocheted was your ripple. I copied your tutorial and sat with them and went stitch by stitch. I'd love to make the granny stripe!!


oooh, your blanket looks divine so far! I have two granny stripes on the go right now, one for each of my girls! LOVE LOVE LOVING them, but they are going very slowly. My hook time is of an evening too - DS 17 months and DD 5 months make hooking during daylight hours tricky lol!

Looking forward to the piccies tomorrow :)


Congratulations on finishing your blanket. Looking forward to seeing the pictures. Best wishes, Pj x

Hi Lucy! Still excited for your big reveal... I know I've been loving your granny stripes, I've made plenty of mitts from them too and they're the best!
I thought I'd let you know, because I know you'll LOVE... I've conquered granny circles and am going to do my reveal of granny circle goodness tomorrow if you have a moment to pop by! Have a lovely day XX

Oh no! I am nowhere near finished with mine yet! How do you manage to complete yours so quickly, and with a little one taking up all your attention too...
Can't wait to see your finished pics hun, what are you making now?
*hugs* Heather x


OMGOSH!! That blanket is fabulicious. All of your pieces are scrumpcious beautiful. I really like dropping by.


It's so pretty!!! I would recognise your crochet anywhere!


This is just gorgeous-and I know how difficult it can be- I have 4 Wee Ones that "help" me all the time!! I'm still dreaming about your caravan though, we may need to see more delicious photos soon!!!!


ooh that looks so beautiful. I have been watching the progress of this blanket and strangley enough I brought the wool to start my very own tonight.

Just popped over here to see how to tackle the granny stripe and have found your beautiful finished article.

Well done.


Indeed, it is very gorgeous. I love your color choices and oh how very uniform your stitches are. Nicely done. I am happy just looking at it.


So beautiful! Can't wait to see more pictures!


I am amazed at how fast you are working this up, especially with your family/home life. You are awesome and such an inspiration in all you do. I can so understand how the time constraints can be so daunting. I think that there should be some way to put more hours in the day. Wouldn't that be great?! I look forward to all your pieces and can't wait to see what you come up with next. (And by the way, I do so apologize for my stupidity a few weeks ago over that pattern I was struggling with. I think the heat got to me and I can't apologize more.) Take care.


Whhhhheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!! I get so excited to see your finished projects! The colours are wonderful, I can see already that it is totally amazing!
It was only a few days ago (after our camping trip) that I thought that our tent would really benefit from a nice little camping blanket all of its very own, and I can now feel the inspiration leaping about like something demented!

Off to the woolshop then...

Have a lovely weekend, cant wait to see all your reveal pics!

Love Julia x

It's so beautifully and neatly woven. I really loved your work. Awesome.


Hi Lucy,
Glad to see you are back and waiting to see your next ta-dah. I've been learning to crochet - inspired by you and all the other clever hookers I've found in blogland. I'm struggling. It's not as easy as I thought it wuld be but I'm determined to make a little rug so I am practising every night.


Your finished blanket is stunning. I can't wait to see the photos. I am also interested in how much yarn you used for your blanket. I want to be sure to get the right amount when I start mine.


beautiful!!!!!! yay!

Hi Lucy

Thank you so much your blog is so inspiring. Enjoy the time with your little B it goes so quickly Love Vicki


I've enjoyed reading your blog and eagerly await your posts. I've been crocheting since I was a child and absolutely love it! I found your blog when I was trying to figure out the ripple blanket pattern. I'm currently working on a striped ripple one inspired by your creations. I think I will try the granny stripe one when I'm done with the ripple one. You've got me hooked on these colorful patterns. They are so easy, soothing, and sooo much fun! Hugs to you and the little kiddies from me, all the way from the US!


Yay! Glad you were able to finish your blanket. Can't wait to see pictures of it all finished. :)

I am just about finished with my Granny Stripe blanket too and I wasn't planning on giving it a border, but after looking at yours..oh my. If you have a sec, and I know that is not really funny....but can you tell us how you did the border. If it's not too much trouble. Thanks!
