Just finished the coast blanket. Thank you for the pattern.


Hello, Lucy!
My name is Caroline,28, and I live in Germany. I really do love love love your homepage and your beautiful works and patterns! I owe it to you, that I'm crocheting my very first ripple blanket at this moment in blue tones and I'm really happy because it looks good, even though it yet just has 22 rows.
Thank you for being a very inspirating woman!
kind regards, Caro


I love the blanket and really enjoy your blog. You are so inspiring -- every time I pop-in, it puts a smile on my face! I sincerely appreciate all the information and helpful tips - I just completed my first crocheted afghan and it is completely because of your blog. I am so happy for you, with the Attic 24 store - it is well deserved! I wish you every success!


I feel very happy because it has reached your wool Barcelona. In my blog I show pictures of my package. Congratulations on your blog.


That's beautiful Lucy - those colors are so coastal!
Love seeing all the different ways you have chosen to photograph it.
I'v got a ripple on my hook at the moment - in mint choc chip colors - I'm a bit apprehensive about the border but now I have seen how a simple border works on yours I think I will go with that option too.
Hope you are enjoying a warm september, here in the alps ours is much warmer than our August was.
Kindest regards from Chamonix


Beautiful Lucy, the blanket is gorgeous. Still working my way through my own ripple blanket for Doris caravan. Karen x


Hi Lucy, I would like to say how much I love your blog and patterns, I hope it is ok that I have mentioned you on my Facebook page www.facebook.com/awibblyworld along with a link to this beautiful blanket. xx


Hi Lucy. Wow! What a beautiful blanket... Perfect for memories of Dorset! Very jealous of your holidays, every place you photographed holds very special memories for me, lovely family camping holidays in Highlends End campsite when our children were small. Happy days, I'm from Yorkshire too, so lovely memories there as well. I've just re learned to crochet and so going to start on something for Autumn with inspiration from you. Thank you.
Have a great day. Jane


The kit has arrived at Murcia, Spain! It's very hot here (40ºC), but I can't wait to begin with the blanket... I love this colours! Congratulations!

Oh it was wonderful to discover this post ! My god daughter just got a new big girl bed and I promised her a blanket. And here comes this beautiful pattern ! I ordered the yarn with more girly colors and I was so happy to find it here in the Netherlands !


My Coastal Ripple pack arrived yesterday! It's my first ever attempt at a ripple (only mastered the granny square earlier this year) and I'm very nervous. But mostly excited! Thank you for sharing your patterns and being such an inspiration.


Hello Lucy,
Have you by any chance mapped out the color scheme of the bottom blanket in your first photo? I am a knitter who is now teaching myself to crochet so that I can make this blanket (amoung other things)
Please, if you have this information, I would be very grateful!
I love reading your blog!
Kind regards,

Hi Lucy, yes I thought you might be going, mix up with the rail tickets and they were all sent to me, gut feeling lol.
Look forward to meeting you too. Thanks these two patterns were favourites of mine too....all the others will be released some time later I think....lots more to come.
See you at the show then. X

A gorgeous blanket and your photos along the beach and sea walls are lovely! Very Kaffe Fasset, I think!

Dear Lucy,
Oh I do like this blanket very much. The colors are so soothing, I think I just found my Christmas present! My crochet has been put on hold while I finish knitting socks, but it will resume soon. My birthday is tomorrow and I already ordered the Attic 24 color pack for the granny stripe blanket, so I really can't quite justify two in one month.
Little Lady did a wonderful job of taking your photo.


Missing your posts and pictures and hoping all is well with you x


Gorgeous pictures! I just finished my first ripple blanket a few days ago.
Thank you for the inspiration.


THANK YOU for posting the color sequence you used. Wonderful. Gorgeous, as always.


You really do have the most amazing way with color. This blanket is utterly gorgeous. :)


Well. I have just recieved your coastal pack ofyarn with an additional eight colours. I am in awe of the yarn. Your are so correct about it being so yummy and smooshy. I love it and cannot wait to get working with it. I have not found anything quite as nice here in Australia that is acrylic. Maybe in city yarn shops but I live in country town. By the way it took just eight days to arrive on my doorstep...I will be getting some more for sure. Many thanks for your yarn information. Happy hooking. Lee


Adore this! do you have a sneaky quick way of turning your yarn into balls? I so prefer it to yarn cakes! Thanks! Zoë
