I just love how cozy everything looks in front of the fireplace- wish I had one!

I love all the work you ever do and share. i was wondering if you(or anyone reading this) could recommend a book that works on adding an edge to a blanket. I'm new to crochet and I have a hard time with corners. I don't know how to do them and my work curls. Thank you.

Just found your blog as recommended by my DIL. It is lovely and i have featured you on my blog today. Your designs are so fresh and new they warm my heart.


Loving your blog, reading the entries is sooooo soothing.


Many thanks for your tutos discovered via Pinterest.

Il love all the details you are giving and the numerous photos.

So, meantime, the english is not so natural for me, I feel that I can realise without troubles your nice projects.

Bravo from a village in France,



Hi Lucy

I am so glad to find your site! I am new to crocheting and thought I would start with BeaG's heart and decorate it with flowers then I found your teeny tinies and loved them especially as you explain how to do the stich and no confusion with UK & US terms.

I will be working on it this week and will post in Rav when it is done

Thank you for your interesting inspiring and helpfull site

Lucy, your such an inspiration! I'm going to attempt my first ever granny square blanket. I went out today and bought my wool, just need to get going. Eek! Here I go!


Hi Lucy!
Anyway I could get your mailing address to send you a little something? Please email me at [email protected] if that is possible. Thanks!


I wish we were getting more snow in Colorado! I waited through the hottest summer on record.
I gave the granny stripe a go, but didn't like the ends. Been crocheting for a long time, but you have inspired me to use a wider variety of brighter colors in my afghans.
Happy crocheting!

Thank you for the lemon cake receipe, I am told I am a good cake maker, but lemon drizzle cake has always been a disaster for me. Tried your receipe instant hit. xx


What a lovely set of images. I'm thinking of making a patchwork blanket for my mum using stylecraft. Not sure if I can buy it locally so am thinking of ordering from the internet but a bit worried about choosing the colours that way. Can't wait to see your ideas!

I know right? I just saw some of these from this site called https://www.kigu.me just the other day and it was a huge dose of creativity added to my collection. I'm sure that you guys can also find something in there that will genuinely interest you.

It's so pretty!!! And I love the comment about the B&B!! :o) I always get so much joy out of reading your blog!!!


I have just spent a lovely couple of hours trawling
a huge number of blogs devoted to crochet, and I am
utterly amazed to note the huge influence you have on so many creative and talented people. Thankyou for all that you do, and for being responsible my own foray into the joy that is hooky!! It has taken me thirty five years of stopping and starting, and only when I came across your clear instruction was I finally able to succeed! Much love. Marguerite xxx


I'm a knitter/sewer/crafter/home baker who's just learnt to crochet - age 55!
I love your gorgeous blankets and decorations, did you ever post the pattern for your scarf - worn with the fab Boden coat? I've searched the blog with no luck.


Just wanted to say that I made your lemon drizzle cake the other week and it was to DIE for - it went super fast! I'm making it again this weekend for the in-laws - fingers crossed it works as well!!

The Vintage Folk Painter

The question I would like to ask Lucy, is this - how on earth did you get to lunchtime without lighting the fire?
I went right along with you on your walk to the park and back, and could (virtually) feel the cold and wet soaking into the bones, and then back to the flat, and - no fire!

But you made up for it with the coffee and cake - thankyou, I love lemon.


Lucy Schowalter

Hi Lucy, I love your blog, the area you live looks like from the tv series: Last of the Summer Wine - which i love, and i love your wooly creations, i am sending greetings from the very cold Canadian prairies, keep cozy in your blankets :), Lucy


I so enjoy your blog. I have a love for yarn and color, too. :-)

Lemon "anything" is my favorite! I'd like to bake the Lemon Drizzle cake ... but I don't know what caster sugar is. Does it have another name?

Wishing you a day of joy!


I don't post a lot of comments due to time constraints, but I read every blog post you publish. I LOVE your blog and it never fails to inspire me. From crochet to recipes to family life to your daily activities--love it all. LOVE LOVE LOVE all the pics too. THANK YOU for the time and effort you put into everything you share here. I am still crocheting and loving every minute thanks to you--you inspired me to take it up and I am so happy I did. There are a lot of people out here in blog land that think you are the best.


Such a beautiful wintry landscape, and a cozy colourful homecoming! I especially love the bucket of coal beside the fire :-)


I found this little poem (not sure who it's by) and it made me think of your lovely little gang of creative souls meeting at the cafe-

I will gather my friends together
To stitch in the morning light
And the warmth of the work and the friendship
Will comfort me all through the night.

(Maybe stitch should be knit/ crochet)
