Hi Lucy!
I have wanted to crochet a poncho since I taught myself to crochet 12 months ago. My first project was a big colorful granny throw.
Could you please blog on how you started your poncho and some basics for those of us who want to join along?
Thank you,


Merry Christmas. Your website is inspirational and I want to make so many of your things but I am just learning to crochet. Can you offer any advice for sore left hand when crocheting? It takes me agesvto make one granny square and my hand aches after. Any advice greatly recieved. Thank you Angela xxxx

Hi, Lucy!
I am always thrilled with your choice of colors on your wonderful projects that you share with us out here.
I am at the beginning of a Granny Stripe Afghan; how do you choose the series of colors that you do? I have collected my yarns and am poised with crochet hook in hand.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Years! pj stitches!

Finding time to relax at this time of year is wonderful! Despite the busy-ness, I found a couple of hours to experiment with your snowflake pattern and jazz up my Christmas jumper :)

Oh my goodness I want a wearable blanket too, it looks gorgeous - like a rainbow! Your wreath looks fab! I'm looking forward to making some lls's thank you for your wonderful patterns :-) Jo xx


You live in such a pretty town. Love the window in the apothecary shop.


Hello Lovely Lucy...it's such a joy to visit you blog at the end of the day...you are my 'therapy'. LOL I might have to stop the Lucy daffodils to do the Lucy stars! Hugs, MO


magnifique blog


Oh, I love Lucy's red coat! I HAVE recently pictured similar projects. Your inspiration could be confirmation that I need to make it so.


Lovely blog as always. I saw something in the Sunday Times Style magazine which reminded me of you. I have never seen you crochet lampshades , but perhaps it's a project that could capture your imagination. They are hanging pendant lights, called Dot light by melanieporter.co.uk. Check it out.

Hi, I am completely in love with your blog and i'm finding it such an inspiration in starting my own :) Plus i love that while it's so hot here every day (i live in Australia) i get to go on the internet everyday and look at beautiful pictures of chilly gorgeous England. I was curious as to what camera you use as all the colours in your photos are always so vivid.

Dorothy Griffiths

Wonderful images as always Lucy, I do love your wreath it is just magic. Such a busy time of the year but so much to look at and think about. A fab post which I really enjoyed. Have a wonderful week ahead. Big Christmas hugs

Sandra Licher

Lovely colorful decorations! The shop window is gorgeous....I wish we had those types of shops here. Your crochet is looking like a poncho! Is it?

Rachael Iddon

Oh my, I went into that shop after I came to visit you and it was MAD!!! Such a little shop and soooo many people in it! It was still lovely to visit it though. You've reminded me that I bought a couple of (very cut price) wreaths that I intended to customise. Better add them to the 'to do' list. Happy festive decorating.
