Lucy hi from Australia. In simply crochet issue 15 I notice you have a lovely crochet Heart with a flower (mauve colour) shown. I woul like to but the pattern from you. Can you tell me where I can buy it.

Kind regards



Hi I have watched your site from time 2 time. Love how bright and happy everything is. I said something like that first time. I saw a post of yours from Bloglovin that I get but couldn't there or here get to comment on your beautiful parcel of yarn. Yes thats what makes me happy too. Oh my family too naturally. Wanted to become a member of your site group but only got mumbo jumbo. Love, love your red boots. Red was my favourite colour when younger and still love it but pastel mostly look best these days as I'm granny. Still a bit of bright to make me less boring. I'd always buy red shoes and wish I could wear boots like yours but feet not too good, so I'm envious. Keep crafty and happy. Meme

Hi Lucy, I cam across this on Pintrest yesterday and thought about you and your pom poms, this may help in future: http://www.flaxandtwine.com/2013/03/making-pompoms-in-bulk.html


Ooh! That weather certainly does look grey and cold. I hope your little one gets his sledge - it's such fun playing in the snow! I love the colours of your flowers - they really brighten up a winter's day. And as for your pompoms... ;)


I am not sure if you are still making pom poms, but here is an interesting way to do it in batches. Hope this helps, cheers, Monika


No snow for me please - but I think your little one is right - it's going to be soon. Your poncho is gorgeous.

Lucy I can not say enough how much I love reading your blog. You truly are an inspiration. As I have said before you should write a book, with patterns and happy tadaah moments. It would be a best seller. xxx

Lizy Tish

What a nice day! Can't wait to see the finished poncho.

As lLittle B wishes for snow, we are wishing for a cool change . Very hot here in Melb Australia at the moment. Your blog lifts my day as I see the beautiful colors and creations taking place. Thankyou for sharing your world and opening my eyes to the beauty of everyday things.
I think your blogs and photos put together into a journal type book would be lovely. Xx


I love your blog. It is wonderfull.

Hi Lucy it has been freezing here today but no snow - your poncho looks scrumptious and I can't wait to see you in it. Have a fabulous weekend, big hugs,


Your year sounds like it will be very exciting Lucy. I can't wait to see the finished poncho. It will be done just in time for the snow. I bought a couple of sledges a while back, and I think that's why it hasn't snowed so far...


Looking forward to the poncho ta da moment, sounds like it's pretty imminent. Looks like I've missed out on the Pom Pom making :( Liz x


Snow would be really great :) I bought a pom pom maker with some Christmas money and I've never looked back so easy to create now :)

Just found your website - all your wonderful blankets are so inspirational. It's got me reaching for my hook rather than my needles for a bit! Just ordered the Attic24 kit from wool warehouse - can't wait!
Your poncho looks divine - pls pls pls can we have the pattern and wool details and I will lay down my needles and hook for Britain!!! What an inspiration you are. Keep hooking. :-)

Chris Vanhie

I love opening my facebook page to see your blog and all the colours. We have lots of snow here in my part of the world and the weather man is calling for more tomorrow. Thank you for making the a gray January less so.


Oh I can hardly wait to see the poncho! I just love everything you do :)


Hi Lucy,
this evening i will also enjoy your Artisan Bread. Yesterday i mixed all the things togehter and put them near the fireplace. Now it's in the oven. I'm very excited about the result. Mmmh...
P.S: Your poncho looks cosy and beautiful.

Greetings from snow-covered Germany.

I want to make your NEAT RIPPLE PATTERN blanket/afghan. I had purchased 7 skeins of brightly colored Jarol Heritage Classic DK Wool Rich when I was in Leeds, England, several years ago. I was told how to access your pattern and that would be enough yarn. I want to finally start crocheting it, but I don't know how many chains to make to start it. Each skein is 100 g, 245 m. Can you possibly tell me how many chains to make? I appreciate any help you can give me.


more wonderful colour on your lovely blog, Lucy. Best wishes for your coming year! i know you will do well. x

Jo Navin

Oh and I can't wait to see your poncho Ta-dah, it looks stunning even when it's folded :-) xx

Jo Navin

I'm so glad you're having a lovely day, I wish you luck with your exciting adventures - we're all rooting for you (funny term but you know what I mean). I'm currently enjoying the heady aroma of three pink hyacinths and the anticipation of my simply crochet magazine, (complete with your article) plopping through my letterbox. I do hope Little B gets his snow :-) Jo xx.

Beth Orphan

I've been thoroughly enjoying your blog for a while now. Your happy, upbeat stories make me smile and of course I love your colourful crochet projects. Thanks for being so generous with your time and efforts.

That feels like a wonderful day :) . I've just found your blog, having 'found' crocheting again just last week. I haven't crocheted since I was very young (ahem... quite some time ago ;) ). Now I'm just going to have a wee wander around your lovely blog and make myself feel at home with you :)
