Hooray! So very, very happy to hear that Yarndale 2014 is going to be happening :-)

My sister Thea & I had the best weekend ever last September and can't wait to come back again!


Well done for your brilliant article in Simply Crochet, I loved reading it. Always love perusing over your beautiful pictures in your blog posts :)


Your note pad idea is sooo much better than doing the whole thing digitally and is more true to you as well. It's just a simple but genius idea!

As always Lucy a fabulous post thank you. Before my husband became ill we visited your part of the world so often as I have always loved it so much. I am determined to get over to Yarndale this year to revisit all the fabulous places I have loved over the years. Your blog brings them back home to me. Thanks for the bread recipe as it is fab. Have a great weekend Lucy, sending you hugs and cuddles

and to keep going. Thank you so much for this and also your chocolate chip recipe is gorgeous, we all loved them :)

Hello Lucy! Love your colors and the view of your city, looks lovely! We could use some of your rain if you want to send it to the US :) Happy stitchery from Utah.

The bread looks amazing. I will have to give it a go

What a lovely column in Simply Crochet!
And your poncho/blanket to wear, is so simple but so effective!
Thank you for all the inspiration you give.


oh! I love your blog! You always inspire me.. thank you!

Made the artisan bread using your recipe but I did it wrong! I didn't have enough white flour so used rye and forgot to activate my yeast before mixing. It's a more dense loaf but still delicious, I'm really pleased! X

Love your blog and your colorful work! I posted your blog address on https://www.facebook.com/MundeleinKnitnCrochet for our knit & crochet group to see and get some inspiration!


How about hanging little pompoms all around the hem of the poncho?


Lucy: what do u think about this ones for the edge?

or this one?

Oh my goodness this iPhone has busily changed my words like homemade and hearty into nonsense. I'll leave you to guess at the sense behind the gabble and hang my head at lack of proof reading!!!


Funnily in also cooked chicken and lentils today, but with butternut and a homage chicken stock. It's a heart soup/stew.
Whenever we gave roast chicken I save the carcass with a little but if scraps of meat, pop it into my slow cooker (same as yours) cover with hot water, a quartered onion, skin on, several unpeeled chopped carrots, a bay leaf and 4-5 whole black peppercorns. Leave all on low for hours overnight. 14 this time. Then you can throw all away except your delicious stock, perfect for reducing down for soup, using in risotto and casseroles etc.
I'm not really sure how this snap! comment has turned into a recipe but we go!


I just can't wait to see that poncho all finished. It is utterly beautiful already. :)

Silly Little Sheep

I am putting Yarndale into my calendar!! I should be living in the UK permanently by then, so we might visit :) I's better start saving money for the yarns already :DDDD

I like the lentil in your curry picture, I have started eating so many more vegetarian meals since I discovered red lentil... it's wonderful!

Hi Lucy, I was just looking at the Mrs Moon website (yummy yarns!) they have a gorgeous scarf pattern (in the crochet projects section) and the edging is so pretty, it's similar to the one that Angela suggested but with longer chains to make it a bit more "dangley" (?!?) The pattern is called Richmond and I thought you might like it :-) Your poncho is gorgeous, can't wait to see the Ta-dah and to make one for myself. Xx


Truely gorgeous pictures. I too have been making pompoms - my youngest son loves to play with them.


I have read your post twice and repeatedly at you pictures. What a beautiful town, I love mine to pieces even though it is not nearly as picturesque as yours, so I understand the devotion. You have also encouraged me to pick my hooks back up as i have been behind my machine for 2 years. thanks for the post!
