The volume of your output is astounding, my 11yr old (knitting in her hands) and I are amazed. You are inspirational. (And you could be earning a well deserved living out of your designs.)

Stunning! What a glorious array of colours. The Blooming Flower Cushion is my favourite.


What a delicious yarnfest!

Wow, I'm almost speechless. I love everything. You have been a busy ferret, well done. You are right to be so proud. If I could achieve a a 5th of that I would be happy!

With so many followers and so many wishing for the Happy Flower Tutorial - it's time you started charging for your inspiration.Is it very difficult to set up a paypal account (the method used for selling knitting patterns)so at least we can send a few quid for your trouble? After all, yarn doesn't grow on trees!! Lovely to see your Secret Things.


Wow! You've done so much, and it's ALL beautiful!! Happy Hooky New Year to you :)

Lovely lovely lovely :o)

Inspired by your circles scarf ta-dah I am currently hooking myself a scarf, but instead of cirles I'm using your hexi tutorial in 3 shades of the gorgeous Debbie Bliss Andes yarn that I treated myself to using some cash I was given as an Xmas gift.

I've been in a frenzy of inspiration from your lovely tutorials since finding the Attic & look forward to much more in 2012.

you make such lovely things!


Lucy, we have desperate need of the pattern for the happy flower to make as Easter decorations!! Please if you could write this as soon as possible, it would be fab!! Great blog and great crochet designs, many thanks for sharing with us.


I just found your blog and love it! I've already made the tiny hearts, so cute! I wanted to know what kind of yarn do you use? Do you have a pst about that?


Congrats on the Debbie Stroller commission. This is an oh-so-cute baby blanket. I recall you were being secretive about someting around then, but I thought is was a line of Lucy yarn!

I'm a marketing professional, and I'm availabe to represent you over here in the colonies!! :) You are siting on goldmine, my dear.


You really are a rock star! I love the Wall Flower...Happy 2012!

I love your blog Lucy and everything you create! I'm an aspiring crafter and your posts and gorgeous photos cheer me up on my morning commute. I'm looking forward to seeing your creations in 2012! I really hope that I can learn to crochet in 2012. Your posts always motivate me to give it a go.

Keep posting your wonderful posts. x

I love how your colour choices have changed slightly since 2010.
Will be keeping an eye out for new patterns if you get chance, love what you've done this year, I think I've used quite afew of your patterns for baby stuff I've made recently, hank you so much & happy new year xx


Congrats Lucy! all lovely and beautiful projects to be proud of!


I just love reading your blog. It makes me wish I had been more like you when my children were young. Alas, it is too late for me and mine are grown up now. Enjoy your children while they still live with you and before they all moe away.


You need to write a book (crochet, that is) :)

I've just finished my continuous Granny Square blanket for our king size bed (PHEW!!!) and am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my first yarny goodness order from Deramore's so I can start on my Granny Stripe blanket.

Thanks for all the wonderful inspiration and I'm so looking forward to the tutorials you're going to be doing:)

Your work is beautiful Lucy I love every single thing you make. I do love your Happy flower I can just see one of those hanging on my wall, I hope that you will have time to post the pattern for us. I can't wait to see your 2012 makes :)

Deb McDonnell

You are sunshine personified! I really appreciated your ripple pattern instructions and would love more tutorials. They've been so helpful to so many. xxx

All gorgeous- the Japanese Flower scarf is beautiful and still a favourite- but the Happy Flower is pretty damn wonderful too!


Wow, such impressive accomplishments! I' m still working on my Japanese flower shawl that I started shortly after you posted about it. I've done some sewing, and made some burlap banners in between the crocheting, not to mention being a full time teacher! I get compliments on it any time I work on it in public. I also love the ripple pillow!
Blessings from Texas,


Incredible :0 If I had made just one of those I'd be proud - you must be bursting. When is someone going to commission a book from you?!


All I have to say Lucy is S-T-U-N-I-N-G
Love Tracy xx
