Oh, I just saw, that you have recently become a contributor to Simply Crochet!! Congrats!!!! It is your "fault" that I had to subscribe the magazine ;-) Oh, I think I am kind of addicted to books and magazines containing crochet :-) Unfortunately I am currently a bit short of time to work on all my projects I have in my head ;-)


I'm eager to learn the little lacy stars!! Thought you'd write it in this post, when I saw you had updated the blog =(

Oh this is going to be fantastic! I was thinking of a poncho idea, maybe just a basic granny square type thing, but this is sooo much better. Can't wait to see how it turns out! :D

Love the start of your colourful poncho. Angie has a lovely one to in granny squares. Definitely looks very popular. Liz x


I love it...can't wait for the pattern...have been on the hunt for a gorgeous crocheted poncho...very nice!!!


Ich würde auch sooo gerne mal so was Schönes häkeln!


All looks good - the poncho, the adorable flowers, and the cake! Yum! Tis the season for sweets (and carrot cake is a healthy one)! I'm going to go have my blueberry coffee cake for breakfast - getting my antioxidants!

Just fab - it'll be like wrapping yourself up in a hug which is what I do every morning when I wrap myself up in my ripple blanket for half an hour's quiet meditation before the chaos of the day starts! xx


Beautiful, cheerful and makes me smile, like always. It looks so warm and bright, the right thing for the winter. And please please please write us a pattern :)...please


I love the pattern.
I just finished the crochet bag and I started another one.Thank you for the tutorial!


it's going to be lovely! I always get up and put on a wool poncho and a scarf. it feels so much better than sloping around in a dressing gown! Look forward to seeing just how big and blanket like you make it! Heather x


Remember Lucy... you can never be unhappy in a poncho!


Ahhhhh I love it Lucy. I have a real passion/obsession for shawls and have about 9 now, all crocheted. Have you seen the wonderful Annette's Nordic Shawl from My Rose Valley Blog? It's beautiful, and purchasing her pattern is on my list of things to do in the new year. There is nothing nicer than being wrapped around in a portable blanket on these chilly days.

I wanted to say also that I hope that you and your Family have the most Super Christmas and New Year, and I cannot wait to hear and see what you get up to in 2014!

Take care and much love

It's going to look wonderful Lucy, full of colour and fun. Love the little flowers as well. Your crochet is stunning.


Hi Lucy, I just wanted to tell you how happy your blog always makes me. I'm in my last year of high school (I'm in America, not sure what year that translates to... anyway I'm 17). I'm stressed and worried all the time and going to your blog always makes me calmer and happier and inspires me to experiment with my own crochet. I've never commented on here before, and I figured it was about time. Thank you. <3

Hi Lucy,It's going to be wonderful and I really love the word "wearable blanket" so much better than poncho!!! Have a fab day!!!


Lucy, You will be so protected within this beautiful rainbow and all the beautiful people will come to see you shining in it. Have you ever seen the photo of Paul McCartney from the Beatles in his granny square vest?.....mmm.....now this IS yummy!


Love it! I must admit, though, I was in Christmas mode when I was looking at the photos and thought it might be a tree skirt for around the base of your Christmas tree...but I think it's a gorgeous poncho!


Colorlicious as always! Is there going to be a pattern posted on this? Say yes, please!

Love your bright colors, I want to fill my house with the same brightness.

Just love your vibrant colours and beautiful work, you so inspire me! Linda


can't wait to see the results. Love the colors.


it's sooooooooo lovely, Lucy .... :) I wish I had more time this month so I can make one for me. Sadly, I can grab my hook and yarn after Christmas... :(


A few years back these were very popular with the teenagers. So my Mom made one for my daughter, but it turned out a little gawdy, so she refused to wear it. This one was a patriotic red, white, and blue. I decided that I would wear it. But I have to admit that I dont like the fringe she put on it. I prefer them without fringe. But seeing yours makes me want to make one for myself. I'm not really good at following patterns, but I think I can estimate. :) Yours is looking great!


I love those cute little flowers. And a cover up for the cold winter sounds like a great idea.
I also went to the ripple blanket. I first saw it a while ago, and I bought lots of yarn to make one. I do believe that I will start on that in the new year.


Really lovely Lucy :)
