Hi Lucy,
I'm so pleased to hear that your health problems can be resolved. It's such a worry when things aren't right. You take care and slow down. If you rest and recover now, especially through the tough winter months, you will bounce back full of your usual bright array of colours in the spring xx I look forward to seeing your inspirational crochet ideas and projects.
I love your Attic 24 wool packs, your colour blending is sublime. My best friend taught me to crochet last Easter and I can honestly say I'm addicted. I owe so much to you and my friend. Crochet is such a peaceful pastime, I love it.
Take care of yourself

I love your choice of colors!


A great year here. As always I've thoroughly enjoyed reading along, but I feel I need to put a request in, can Connievan please be featured this year? Maybe something can be made with her in mind? Perhaps.
I look forward to my 4th Yarndale and soaking up all the goodness within it.
Keep on keeping on, I do love this so.
Happy 2016 to all. X

Just wonderful! I'd forgotten about the wintery wreath...love it and I think I will work on one for myself. I've started a granny stitch multi-colored stripy shawl/wrap (which is going to be a big one) using the Special by Stylecraft double knit yarn from your series of colors. I love the ryhthm of the stitch and the colors are Lucy colors, which make me happy. :) Thx for the inspiration and sharing, m'dear. All the best for 2016!!! MO

Fabulous,as always. You really are a great ambassador for the world of crochet,and so generous with your time and creativity. I'm sure I 'm not the only one who became inspired to start crocheting again after reading your blog (a few years ago now!) and you are still inspiring with your enthusiasm and general upbeatness (is that a word?) today. So a heartfelt thank you for all the hours you put into your blog, to show us all such beautiful crochet and best wishes for 2016. Dette


absolutely beautiful work!
I always find inspiration when I read your writings and see your lovely work - THANK YOU!

I love your blog! But when I try to subscribe I get just a blank screen, until I refresh and then get back to the blog itself. I do receive some of your posts through Bloglovin, but not in my chosen blogs, just in the second section, of ones that might interest me. I don't want to miss any--please help me get definitely subscribed. Thanks, and happy 2016!


It's all beautiful, but I love the winter wreath. That's a work of art.


I love your crochet year in review. love your blog

You did say that you would consider making a yarn pack available for the beautiful summery pastel blanket from 2008, but using Stylecraft yarn this time. Oh please please do it!

Oh, my goodness, Lucy....you are truly an inspiration! I don't know how you do it....ALL THE LOVELY CROCHET PROJECTS, children, home....you are a super-woman!!! I've made several of your blankets and have several more waiting to be crocheted, and the reason I love doing your things is because of the clear and concise tutorials you provide....which make it so easy to understand. Thank you...thank you....thank you!!!! Happy New Year!


Wow! I loved seeing all that in one place! Thanks for the beauty and inspiration. Now that I see that winter wreath again, I just might have to make it. The colours are wintry without being dull - so fresh.

Annette in Canada

Thanks for always being there when I could use an inspiring read or just to let me know what you are up to/feeling at the moment, there on the other side of the ocean! Your colourful blogs always put a smile on my face. Your family is so lucky to have you!


Enjoyed seeing so much of your work in one post. The Winter Wreath is one of my favourites. Thank you for inspiring us all!
