It's so beautifull !!! It makes me happy to see those happy colours !!


I adore those beautiful autumnal oranges and yellows - my eye was drawn to them straight away.


Oh, what fun!

I'm working on your Coast ripple now. I must crochet looser than you bc my blanket is at least nine inches wider! 😂😂😂😂 So I'm sure I will not do all the rows and will have to hope I can do a border. I used a size G needle. Next time I'll drop to maybe F. I love the sunshine colors. May have to get those too. I have another one of your brights. Just not sure which. I love woolhouse

Oh heavens, I'm still on the cosy blanket from last year but this granny square blanket looks amazing! I love granny squares, they give great instant gratification :)


Greetings from the southeastern U. S. -

I have so many projects in progress, but I am thinking of taking my leftover yarn to make a pillow in your log cabin/courthouse steps pattern. I need a couple of pillows for my sofa.

Love your color choices!

Anne Marie

I'd love to do one of these squares but not a blanket as I've got enough now and not enough room to keep them. The colours are beautiful. I've got just the thing to use - some leftover Sublime.


I absolutely adore and love this colour scheme, it's sooo me :-)
As a eagle eyed patchworker too, I see that the placement of the centre and the strips are put together in the 'Courthouse Steps' pattern rather than the traditional Log Cabin pattern shown in the patchwork quilt. Both give a similar pattern when stitched together x


love them both well done.


The log cabin is beautiful. It's so exciting to see something different in a blanket design. I hope lots of people buy your wool packs. Thanks (as always) for sharing.


Lucy! once again fascinate me your blankets! and your post always looks so well, so well structured and you explained everything so well ... you're the queen of crocheting, without a doubt! Thank you once again for making us enjoy these bright colors! I hope that your CAL be a success! many kisses from Catalonia!


Milly said what I was going to say. While a gorgeous square, it's not a traditional log cabin. I'm glad Milly knew the variation name!

I've been working sporadically on a log cabin crocheted quilt myself. Instead of hauling all those colors along with me everywhere, I have kept each square consistent and am doing all of the crochet of one color before moving to the next. Mine is queen bed sized, so 36 squares. I'm almost done with color 4 of 8

Maybe my working along with all of you will inspire me to get a good chunk done this fall/winter!


I ordered your yarn pack this morning. All I need is another project but I'm very excited!! I don't think it will get to the US by Sunday but that's okay. Guess I'm in!!!!


My pack arrived a few days ago, and is sitting in my lounge looking all pretty....
Can't wait to start, I'm also in Australia, so will be good to have the smaller squares, don't have to have a huge big blanket on my lap while I'm doing it.
I still have the ocean, cosy and harmony on the go.
Whoops :)


lovely block, nice twist on an old favorite. And rainbow colors....should have saw that one coming. Seriously, if you use the same colors over and over again, even if you use a different pattern, the projects begin to look the same. Just sayin....


what you do inspires me and delights me ... everything is beautiful .... I ordered the wool blanket for the strip ...
I'm one of tout french fan!!!


Instead of asking Lucy to crochet with different yarn, why don't people just choose their own, if they would like something different? I have no idea why they don't anyway. Choosing your own colours is part of the fun. It does seem a shame to have so many all the same when people could be creative themselves and reflect their own personalities. Anyway, if you don't like acrylic, buy wool, cotton whatever - there is a whole lot of yarn out there! If you prefer pastels or earthy colours then use those. It really is up to us to choose our own preferences.


I am so very excited to start the Granny Stripe blanket! Your blog brings me so much joy and always puts a smile on my face. Every time I see your beautiful selected colors or your stunning outdoor photos, I am overwhelmed by the beauty surrounding you. This will be my first Granny Stripe blanket, thank you for walking me and others through the process. My appreciation from the States (Oregon)!

I sang the sunshine song to both of my babies every day. It always made them smile. The colors of this Log Cabin CAL are so beautiful. I think I am a jewel colored gal. I have already ordered and received my Sunny pack. I think I will be ordering another so I can make the granny stipe blanket as well in the beautiful sunny colors. Thank you so much for sharing your talent!


I'm in! I just love your yarn packs! Ordered mine today - its amazing that it cost me a lot less to have it shipped from England to the States than it is to buy yarn here!! Thank you Wool Warehouse and Lucy for a great yarn/pattern combo! Now to decide on which pattern.....


Looking forwards to receiving my wool pack soon, and joining in from frosty Norway!

Anne Cooke

To the person who wanted yarn with wool content: 100% acrylic is best for blanket making. Harder-wearing,easier to wash and dry,and does not felt when sat on. Many of us use these on our sofas.

Angela-Southern USA

Yep...I have that song in my head...and will probably hum/sing it all day!;P Also, isn't there a song or something with sunshine and shadow?... Anyway, those two are winners already!!! Last spring I think, I made some cushions with the log cabin design, a very fun project to crochet. I just may join in, maybe in a crib size, for a friend. Let the fun begin!
