Take the time you need. Our thoughts are with you.

Hello. Reading your post reminded me of The Nightspinners by Kate Perry. The spiders in the story create the most wonderful fabric, square by square. I've been collecting kidsilk haze for a while to make my own version of it.

hi lucy, your colors make me so very happy! they would even make me look forward to the end of summer to have such a blankie! i was thinking about your summer weight yarn dilemma, and i would suggest you look at Knitpicks curio yarn http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/Curio__D5420245.html. it is lace weight cotton, considered crochet thread, and you could make a light, airy granny with it! sigh! i have used this in multiple strands on my knitting machine for sweaters and it is a lovely quality yarn. have a happy day, karen


you are my inspiration and i love your blog so,so much. Thank you for your creativity and happiness!!



Thank you so much for sharing your joie de vivre, your little people and your lovely view with all of us. As a city girl, living near Los Angeles, CA, your life seems so idyllic and peaceful - compared to my constant hustley-bustley life here (tho, I LOVE it!!). Your studio and home are filled with such love.

You are an inspiration, Lucy, and I feel like you're a friend, even though we've never met. Thank you and continued blessings to your family! <3

Hi Lucy, I would love to share a photo of my baby bunting with you. Can you tell me where I can place the photo. It came out great and the pattern was easy to follow.

Hi Lucy,
It's always about the simple things in life that can mean so much and make us smile and stop in our tracks. Lovely as always.
Thanks Lucy. X


Dear Lucy, LOving your stories of life as always.. and the beautiful pictures you share, that we can relate to our lives... and chuckle a bit...
I also was thinking of making a light weight summer blanket... : I bought the very light weight baby yarn ( which is perfect for summer) I was also thinking a granny stitch as well... to give it an airy feeling, rather then a heavy stitch...
Anxious to see what you have come up with.... Patti


Look at that spiders' webs.
I like late summer, but not early autumn...
Nice post.


As always, a pleasure to visit your blog, Lucy!
I do not think that happens, but someday I'd like to visit your corner of Wool! hahahaha!!!!!
I love too your blanket! LOVE IT!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of family, joy and creativity!


Today is the National Day of Catalonia, my country.
At 17:14 hours in BARCELONA. We hope the world will listen us.
There will be a V, with the following meaning:
VOTE (votar in catalan) , WILL (voluntat in catalan) and VICTORY (victòria en catalan) .
We, the Catalans, hopefully one day we can celebrate our Independence Day.
Above all we are a peaceful people.
Thans for sharing, Lucy!
Have a nice day!


I would like to contact you about The British Knitting Awards 2014

Many thanks


Lucy hi!
I love the picture of the spiders webs.The perfection of Nature never ceases to amaze us. I also love strawberries but we have them fresh only in spring and early summer in Greece, so I now really miss them.


I like King Cole Bamboo cotton as it's not too heavy.


I. Am. Moving. To. Yorkshire.
Enough said.

Lucy, I really enjoy reading your blog. I was just reading some news stories and feeling really down about the state of the world, and thought I needed to read something light and happy. I'm so glad I clicked over to your blog. I scrolled back through a few recent posts I had missed, and one line of yours stuck out to me as quite inspiring. On Summer's End, you wrote, "It was a truly gorgeous family holiday, the sort where everything just kind of went right and stacks of happy memories were made." I love that! :) It made me smile.

There is a lovely, soft yarn manufactured by Plymouth called Jeanee Worsted. It is 50% cotton, 50% acrylic and it is so very soft and lovely! It comes in many summery colors as well!.


i have used fingering weight Palette yarn from Knitpicks for several ripple ghans that do not weigh too much. it's 100 per cent wool. i don't know of a fingering weight cotton yarn with as wide a range of colors. but the fingering weight, as i say, has produced very large afghans that don't weigh 300 lbs. for me.

I love that you appreciate nature and all that it offers. I don't think it's ridiculous at all. I love you sharing it with us too.
Have a wonderful day.

Judith - in Ontario

I really enjoy all your posts. I hope you will soon settle into a "new" routine which will embrace your future. Just a thought:- we read about "Little B" but have not seen very much about Little Lady and Little Man (who must be more Large than Little by now. Anything you might care to share?


I love this time of year too Lucy. We have evergreen Cotoneaster plants that grow along our garage wall. One of those plants that's just there as you pass by it. I so enjoy how it changes during the year from being covered in snow and frost, then spring and summer and the masses of bees that arrive on those pretty flowers, then follows spiders webs in the dew of autumn and the birds eating all the red berries that follows the flowers. Lovely just lovely.

I love september the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness and what I call gentle weather not too hot and not too cold don't like the nights pulling in though or the darker mornings

Angela-Southern USA

Life's joy is in the simple things. That's one of the things I admire the most about you Lucy. I agree with the other ladies, cotton, bamboo, or alpaca blend. I look forward to the progression of it. Simple things of enjoyment here this week: watching the kitty play with it's reflection in a pail of water, late hatched baby chicks, sunflowers blooming, gentle breezes. Have a great day Lucy!x
