Brilliant brilliant idea!!
Gonna treat myself to a pack now - fewer calories than an egg!

And fantastic idea re the commission arrangement, we all have bills to pay and you really should get some reward from all the work you put into promoting the craft of hooky.

Love the bag and the cushion Lucy. I've bought the wool pack and I'm more than thrilled that you get something from it as you give us so much. And check out the price, thats less than £2 a ball AND you get buttons!!! Thanks Lucy xxx


Hi Lucy.
love your blog and you have basically taught me how to crochet this year! I went to high school in your town and love seeing the pics you post as I live in not quite so beautiful stoke now and get homesick when I see them! You must have really boosted sales cos they are out of stock of the chunky yarn now! Well done you!!! And thanks for your fab blog xxx


Lucy that is fab news I am so pleased your infectious love of colour and crochet are earning you some pennies too. I know all your many fans will be thrilled for you as your blog bring happy sunshine in to your days. X


Hello. Lucy
The bag is so beautiful.
Always looking to learn. ^^
Thank you.


I absolutely love your bag, but more than that I love the tone of your Blog, the love you have for your home and family, and the amazing pictures of your house! Thanks for Blogging!


Ah I can't help but be a bit happier when I see your projects. They are always so colourfull and cheerfull. - Thank you for sharing.


Have ordered my pack, can't wait to get started. What a clever idea, you always use such great colours.


Wow! Sold out already! x


Absolutely love it Luce and well done you on getting a commission deal. xx

Hi Lucy. Have been working on the bag you posted 6 years ago. Almost done and I love it! Also made your lemon drizzle cake to take to my knitting/crochet group. It was a hit here in the USA.!

Dorothy Grifffiths

Lovely Lucy I adore your bag, have always wanted one myself and wanted to make one. Until I came to your wonderful workshop I didn't have the confidence - well I have taken the bull by the horn and ordered the yarn - thank you so much for the fabulous pattern/tutorial, you are a star Lucy.
Sending you lots of loves and hugs and Happy Easter


This must have been a very popular and successful collaboration with the Wool Warehouse as I just went to get a pack and they are out of stock!!!

Bravo Lucy!!

Allie Cat

Squeeee ordered mine yesterday and it arrived today! :-) Putting my obsessive sock knitting aside for a wee while to make this and a baby blanket for my Niece who's baby is due in September. Thanks for the pack, fab idea! Xxxx


I've tried so hard to resist... But I've failed!! Very happy to support your inspiring and always entertaining blog though, I'm glad you're making a bit of money out of my powerlessness to resist!!

Areri Chris

very nice Lucy, love the colour combo - can I ask would you recommend this yarn for making blankets? I really want to make one for my baby due in August. I thought maybe if I go for a chunky yarn option it will be nice for winter.


Hi Lucy, I LOVE your new bag and I'm so glad you are getting a reward for all your hard work and generous sharing of your creativity.
in fact I think Stylecraft themselves ought to pay you commission....you have certainly done a lot to popularise their yarn :0)


Ooh Lucy, I love it!!!

We've just decided on a spontaneous seaside trip this weekend so I've been having a think about an in-car crochet project as it's quite a lengthy drive. I think you've just given me a super idea. (The clothes and wash bags will be stuffed in at the last minute! I have my priorities right, non?)

Hoorah re the commission, I should absolutely think so too! WW is lucky to be associated with you.

Hi Lucy. Going to make this one. Have recently completed your bigger version and have put into Zippystitch to have a lining and fabric stabiliser put in it. Am picking up on Saturday. Cannot wait to see it. I am just no good at working out sewing pattern ideas so have left to those who can. Good idea to use the chunky. I would love you to do a pattern for a granny bag with round plastic handles. Hope you have a wonderful Easter!

Love the bag, it's gorgeous and that yarn looks dreamy to work with. Congratulations on your collaboration with Wool Warehouse too - you most certainly deserve to earn a little something for all your hard work and generosity with free patterns!

You always inspire me to try something new. I am getting tired of blankets. Good for you on earning a commission. You always give so generously.


Very yummy and perfect in every way, and the bag is gorgeous too!


Absolutely beautiful and fun bag! And congratulations on your deal with Woolhouse, I am truly happy for you, you deserve it so much!! :-) xxxx
