Hello from Deatsville, Alabama in The U.S.A. I'm a beginner to the Crochet World and just haven't got picking out my yarn down. Thank you for sharing your own indecision in this.

I am oooohing and aaaahing at your yarn and my mouth is salivating! haha! I recently started teaching myself how to crochet this summer and I cannot get enough of all the wonderful vibrant colors! I love your blog so much, I love being in your attic! <3 Have a wonderful day!!!


I am officially jealous. I want a local yarnshop, too.
Very pretty, those colours.

my website

That list includes: Plumas, Butte, Lassen, Shasta, Sierra, Tehama and Yuba counties my website when looking for your house loan there could be some terms used which you are certainly not acquainted with.

Thanks for posting all this "Eye Candy".........beautiful..........


If you don't mind how much did you spend on the yarn in total.? I love the colors.

It's funny, but once you said it was the pink it really stood out amongst the other colours, and I'd got it totally wrong, lol! I love your new colours and they all look great together. Looking forward to your post about how you choose your colours - I definitely need some help on that score! :)


Ooh, picking colours and making it work is such a skill. (I haven't got it!) Enjoy the 'hooky' and I look forward to seeing the work in progress. x

Thanks for all colors ! It's a pleasure for me to regulary visit your blog...

Hoping all is well with you and your lovely family Lucy. Haven't heard from you all week, and as you did hint that 'things' would be moving along, I have become a trifle concerned at no words having appeared.
Wishing you all love and wellness
Mo xhugx


Oh my, look at all that yarn! I love it, and I love all the colours you chose!


It's always such a joy to pop by here Lucy! I hope that you have the most super duper weekend and the sun stays shining your way!

Much Love

Ahem....I've been jazzed all week....just waiting.....to see....the new blanket projet revealed........as well as the new photos of completed projects.....

I'm desperate for new BIG poject...well, not really, still weaving in the ends on a king size blanket made of four GIGANTIC grany squares, and am only on stipe number 5 of my granny stripe blanket....and making the heck out of boot toppers.....but you get the point! SPILL, DEAR LUCY!!

You were very good to GO BACK to the wool shop! I tend to get into a bit of a frezy in wool shops. I come out breathless and broke. Often I have bought wool that will never be knitted. You are an example to us all!! love your blog by the way

Ohhh Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino is just bliss. I love the colour range and have been building a little (BIG) colour collection of my own! Can't wait to see what you are making with them. I have another stash waiting to be made into some african flowers too. So lovely to crochet with.


Yummy yarn !!!! makes every heart jump with excitement !!! And talking about excitement...Im waiting for the Postman to arrive with a selection of Debbie Bliss Andes ! Im gonna make myself the lovely japanese flowers scarf !!! cant wait ! I got the same colours as yours but changed only one...Im so crazy that I also bought a lime green coat, cos it looks so good against it !!! I spent about 2 or 3 hours looking for a pattern on the net, it's quite a gem to find, but I did in the end !!

How wonderful colours and a huge work!!!! :)


Would you share the color names and the pattern you are going to use? It would be a fun crochet-along. Love your blog!


love the red you have added

Colors always seem to stump me. I am continually amazed at how colors are chosen... Except for the first row of stitches, color is the most important decision in a blanket (and it always terrifies me). Can't wait to hear more about how you pick the colors and see what this yarn turns into.

Oh so jealous of your yarn store - I'm in Texas, only have local craft stores with minimal yarn selections. Probably would spend more than I have in one like yours! Love your blog - it inspires me in so many ways. Thank you for always sharing your love of life with all of us.

Love your color selection. But your yarn basket is what really caught my eye. Is the pattern your own or did you find it someplace? I would love to make one :)


ok- really the yarn is beautiful, but can you please address the amazing red shoes in the previous post- from my research, it seems that you bought them from tina at the quiet home- but... what brand are those lovely, magical red shoes- I covet them deeply- please address this very necessary bit of data in a future post
with gratitude

Ooooo what a beautiful shop, my local craft shop (Vibes and Scribes here in Cork) does an amazing selection of yarn I love nothing better than a visit to fondle the goodness. Cripes they must think I'm a nutter.....

I would love to know more about the bag they are in. Did I miss a tutorial on that one - it's adorable.


I'm interested to know roughly how many balls it will take to crochet a single blanket. Using a basic stripped pattern.
