I came back for another look at your gorgeous crochet review and have fallen in love with the spotty squares...off to see if I can find/work out how to make them!

Dear Lucy, Thank you so much for the inspiration. I just completed my very first granny square project, based on your blog. I have uploaded images of my completed project. I did not follow your pattern for the Debbie Stoller project as you will see no 2 squares are the same, but it certainly was inspired by your layout of the squares. So I would say it is a heavily modified pattern, based on your pattern. Thanks again for your creativity and here is the completed project. http://www.ravelry.com/projects/xhappyx/15-color-granny-square-blanket

Found your blog through Pinterest and am sooo enjoying looking at all your beautiful things: LOVE the colors you use!! I am pinning one of these and posting it in my blog (if that's okay: if not, please let me know, and I will remove it and ad another.) Thanks so much!!!


Love all this crochet!!!
As always, you're so inspiring!
Can't wait to see you sharing all the secret projects you've made.


Sooooooooo woooooooooooonderful works!!!!!!!!!!!


As a 'newbie' to crochet I find your blog sooooo inspirational. I have learnt such a lot from your excellent tutorials and I agree with the person who said you have a book in there! Where do I sign up to lobby for it???? In the meantime, I'm looking forward to the pattern for the Happy Flower which is quite fab.


Wonderful! As a stay at home Mumma of only 2, I can't believe how much you accomplish!


Wow, what a great record of projects. Thanks for sharing.
I love how colorful your work is. If I were to line all mine up for the year, it would be a study in neutrals, which I love...........but it would make for some boring pictures!


You make such beautiful projects!!!

Please, please, please post a tea cozie pattern.





Can't wait for the 'Happy Flower' (April) tutorial! I started learnign to crochet this time last year and have become absolutely obsessive, just finished an 'advanced' class recently. Your blog has been so inspirational and I too spend too much time and money in *that* shop in Ilkley! Thanks for such a lovely blog. Anna


mais c'est un rêve chez toi !!! est ce que toutes ces jolies choses sont en vente ????? tu as une boutique en ligne ????


i love your creativity... they are so beautiful. have a wonderful 2012.

Such delightful work, Ms Lucy. Isn't it a treat to see it all lined up in colorful photos, though?

I have to admit that I glean all sorts of inspiration for projects on your blog (and reminders to sip my tea!) and have done up ripples and squares and have even made a dozen projects with the Japanese flowers... I am most coveting your crocheted yarn basket. I am in the middle of a Very Important Project right now, but it is my next go. (If you mention how you made yours in your archives, I haven't found it. Have you?)

Happy New Year!


I love the April flower.

A pattern would be great, and I now have a crocheting friend to help me.

It will be on my to do list for this year.

Crochet is something I'd like to do this year.


You are so incredibly, ridiculously talented! It is absolutely amazing to me that you are able to accomplish so much while managing the shenanigans of three little people. Looking forward what's in store for 2012!


I do love your hooky makes and all the colours you use, you offer some great inspiration x


I found your blog just a couple of days ago. Your work is so beautiful and vibrant.
I have just ordered lots of yarn to make a scarf from you spot squares. Can't wait.
I learned to crochet as a child but only ever crocheted blankets in the form of a gigantic granny square.
You have inspired me!
Thank you


I so enjoyed reading over your post - it was rather like sitting down with a bowl of my favourite lollies! :)
Quick question... have you hooked up any babies clothing before for your little peeps? I'm due to have my 3rd in June (winter for us), and since I'm a bit slow with a hook and needles, I need to start now. If you have any suggestions, please give me a yell. :)

Lucy, you have done so much colourful hooky business this last year. I only started crocheting just before #2 arrived 7 months ago, so you are an inspiration to me. {when I was in labour I bounced on a birthing ball while crocheting a fancy flower granny square - a brilliant distraction!}. I look foward to visiting your colourful home and learning new hooky projects again this year.

As I was visiting your 2009/10 crochet posts, I wondered if you might be able to find time to post about yarns you have used? - how they have stood up to little people use, how they have worn in the wash, favourites, etc?

May your 2012 be merry, sunshiny bright and colourful in every way.

Wonderful finishes, I'm looking forward to the spotty squares tutorial!


happy hooky 2012


Oh mercy me!!! That is a gorgeous eye-full, right there. What a beautiful hooky year you had. :)
