You're so awesome! I do not think I've read something like this before. So great to discover someone with some original thoughts on this subject matter. Really.. thank you for starting this up. This website is something that is needed on the internet, someone with a bit of originality!


is there a list of the Drops colours you have in the photo? I had a look on the wool wearhouse website and the colours seem to be a little differnt to your photo. Your ones seem to match realy well.

Strange I should stumble upon your blog today. I love crocheting (and already have many ideas from your blog!), AND my mum ( http://www.lindacalvert.co.uk/ceramics/index.html ) used to share a studio with Ken. He is a lovely bloke, and one of his big bowls is all I eat out of!


Hello there, sweet little person!

I would like to join with a few triangles...
...but i´m not an computer-person, so i have no idéa how it will happen

I´m a soon 50 year young girl from sweden, now living in south germany, who always, to my boyfriends very often anger :( , must crochet, knit, embrodery, paint, somethingelse, and ofcourse my hatmaking (my profession), Blythe-doll collecting, and so on, just about always must and have something in my hands. Simply, i love it, don´t want to live without it, and it makes me healthier!

Soooo, how can this all come tru and happen?
Please let me know! Thank you for a fab and so inspiering blog!!

Wishing you warm weather & a lovely weekend!
Hugs! / Liz


Dear Lucy, I came originally for the crochet inspiration; I keep coming back for the lovely colourful bits and bobs - your flowers and jugs (and the GPs of course). I've started taking a leaf out of your book and buying myself lovely flowers, mostly tulips at the moment. I've started my own 'jug hunt'. Haven't found any yet but enjoying the search. Can't wait for Yarndale!

Precious Crafts

Seeing all your lovely pieces, I believe I must start 'making notes of the colour codes' as you do. I am so awful at choosing colours! :D


Dear Lucy,I should like to send you an e-mail. LISE.

Jane Denholm

I have found just the fabric for you - 'put a lid on it' by Michael Miller. It is covered in jugs, mugs etc just like the ceramics in your post. I have just ordered a metre ( and some caravan fabric) from Ditto Fabrics in Brighton.


Thank you so much for showing this beautiful prorcelain, in some days I'm in Beaumaris, I will visit the shop and I'm shure, that I buy some plates!

Glad you're feeling back on track. I have a 'Ken' biught mine off the man himself 2 yrs ago now at the Bovey Tracey Craft Fair (a yearly event down here in Devon) Mine is the green bird. It's on my mantle now as I type :) I think you'd like Hannah Turners work too.Enjoy the long w/end x


Those Ken pieces are so much fun! I see why you like them! Also, those colorful yarns look fun to play with as well. Thanks for another delightful post.


Pretty and organised, sounds good to me. Our guinea pigs are also doing a splendid job of munching our little patch of grass (and dandylions!) Bring on the sunshine!!!

The Drops Paris yarn looks wonderful - but I'd want all the colours you have neatly set out and having priced it up that would be a hefty chunk of my spare/available cash!

So - I'll just have to live vicariously and enjoy whatever you create with it and show on your blog! :-)

Lucy, I enjoy your blog sooo much! I think your sense of color and style is very much like mine. I get constant inspiration from your pictures and your world. I have crocheted garlands everywhere, thanks to you. Spring here in Indiana looks like spring there. Thanks again, an avid reader, Debby P.

Ken's ceramic looks wonderful! I'm in love with it!! Liefs Else X


Thoroughly cheered me up, this has


Tools? Sticks? Bits of string? Sounds like the boy will be a crocheter or knitter in no time ;)

Sue Hall

Hello Lucy,
I have been enjoying your blog greatly. I have some vintage crochet hooks going free, would you like them for a box frame display? Some are tiny and were used to mend stockings in the 1930s . I am happy to post them to you, would like to find a good home for them! My website is www.greenstarquilts.com
Kind regards,
Sue Hall


I've been ready your blog from scratch (such joyful colour everywhere!) and I'm up to the part where Little B is still tiny and trying to grab your crochet all the time. It's hard to believe he's making love hearts with tools now! Time flies! Thank you for sharing your journey with us, truly lovely reading.


Thank you for such a cheery blog. You are an inspiration to someonbe who has just learnt how to crochet. Thank you for the link to the wool Warehouse, I shall certainly shop there as they have such a huge range for my sock knitting and now my granny stitch blankets.


Lovely post and pics as always...:). Love ken! Would love to hear more about the wee chick(?) Sitting next to ken on the shelf?


just had a quick peep at the drops yarn -colours look lovely. I've been tempted x

Hi Lucy, I'll be interested to hear how you got on with the Paris Drops yarn because I bought a couple of balls and really struggled with it being splitty... I was a very new crocheter at the time though and had to keep undoing so re-crocheting probably made it more splitty each time? Anyway, thanks for your lovely colourful pics as always!

Ali Dufty

The few days of warmth and sunshine have been VERY welcome this week .It certainly does wonders for lifting spirits!!! It's funny how quickly we can forget the loooong UK Winter / Spring . Your wee little piggies must be loving their newfound freedom too !!
The Drops 'Paris' cotton is a favourite of mine for my cotton cushions !!! . It seems to hold together nicely and not be too 'strandy' like some brands , if ya know what I mean !! AND a nice colour range to boot !! :) you will love working with them and no doubt be whipping up a creative gem very soon ??!!
Have a lovely weekend. Ali

Gina Affery

I use Drops yarn a lot, especially Drops Muskat which comes in a range of beautiful colours. I also use Drops Saffran. Drops Muskat is my favourite because the yarn has a glossy shine to it.
Love your blog!
