Hello Lucy, I've been following your blog for the last year more or less, specially about crocheting. But I can say I'm an admirer of your work and the sweet way you show your life and family.
Thanks for your kindness through your words in your blog. It's an inspiration to everyone.

Hi Lucy!

Greetings from the Philippines! I've been following your blog since late last year, and your crochet projects has inspired me to take up the hobby again. I've been working on my own ripple blanket, and my target is to have it in 100 unique colors by the time I have my own baby (not preggers ATM so I have extra time to do it lolz).

I'm also extra envious you're able to acquire lots of high-quality yarns where you are. Most of the local yarns here are of so-so quality, so I have to buy mine at a specialty yarn shops at a premium.

In any case, keep up the good work and much happiness to you and your family!


I'd just like to thank you. My friend started me off with crochet on Sunday and pointed me in the direction of your blog. I have now completed 4 Summer Flower Granny Squares in the only wool I had in the house when I started, and today I went out and bought 6 new balls of wool to start a blanket for my god-daughter's first birthday in April. I'm already addicted. I couldn't have done it without you – your instructions are so easy to follow: thank you, thank you, thank you. x


Yet again, many thanks for such amazing photos and wonderful inspiration. I've just caught up with your Little Squares for a ziggy-zaggy blanket. I can't find a tutorial for either the squares or the zig-zag joining up. Any chance of a tutorial some time on these? I'm going to try to work out the Little Squares from your photos, but may come a bit unstuck on the ziz-zag joins so a tutorial would be super. Sorry to ask as I know you already have a bundle of projects you want to start.

Have been admiring your colourful crochet creations and enjoying your ideas and beautiful photographs; I am a crocheter from way back but I'm having trouble with the Regatta pattern (no.94) from Jan Eaton's Ripple Stitch Patterns book - I just can't seem to get past the start of the second row.
Can you help? Thanks!


You truly are an inspiration! About a yr ago, I came across your blog when one of my neices recommended your crocheted snowflakes to her sister. I checked them out too! I was very impressed with all you accomplished, esp with having young children. At the time, I was wondering how to use up a bunch of scrap yarn I had, and being a knitter, thought to knit them into something. After seeing your granny squares and other creations, I decided to use up the scrap by making granny squares. Which I did. Your instructions for crocheting the squares tog was a real timesaver, as well as looking very neat. I finished the afghan this spring. While I was making it, my 12 yr old daughter decided to have a go as well. She crocheted a rainbow granny (red, orange, yellow...); then made 8 more and put them tog as a big square. Then she went around and around with cream and blue until it was bed-sized, and finished it off with a lacy border that she invented. So, thank you for your hard work, your inspiration, your love of colour and of life.

I am impressed!!! I have just discovered the hooks this year (about 3/4's of the way through the year) and I have to say that I love them thus far. You have achieved so much - and with very small people under foot no less :D

Wow! You did an amazing amount of crochet this year---it would be so impressive even without having a new baby to take care of. Your photos are wonderful and such a day brightener. (love to see a calendar of them!) Wishing you and your family a wonderful New Year!

Not bad at all. I think maybe you're making this thing up about having 3 kids, and you just get next door's in to model with your blankets :)

What a lovely colourful post on another dreary foggy cold wet day! Thank you for sharing all your handmade lovelies. I salute you for getting so much finished with a small baby around! I can't believe Baby B is going to be one in a few days - this past year has just whizzed by.

Wishing you and your family a very happy and hooky 2011!
