I love the cupcake pretty colors in your new blanket! I just ordered some pastel-y colors also and will look forward to seeing how yours works out. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Greetings Lucy,

This is Srikala. A very prosperous happy new year to you and your family.We had met once, in the Yarndale 2015.

I made a granny square blanket. But as the rows increased, the four corners were not inline with the middle. the corners were sagging very much and finally my granny square blanket wasn't a square at all. However, when I see yours, its of perfect shape as desired.

Would you please advise me in this regard how to make a perfect granny square blanket? do I need to block it or flip it the wrong side facing me or change the sides to start off a new row??

Thanks much,


What a brilliant post, so lovely to hear a little about your process for choosing colours. My favourite is the cottage mixture I think. I can exactly imagine the pretty cottage garden that inspired you. CJ xx


It is great seeing your blankets like this. I have done the original granny strip and have 2 of the sunny parks but after 4 squares it was not my cup so tea. Will do a granny strip and wonder if I could do the cosy strip with the other pack. My daughters gave me 2 packs of the coast and I have started a king size ripple. Really want to do them all except the sunny squares. Love the cupcake colors


A lovely, soft colour palette, so different from your usual, but still very Lucy! Each time you show us a new blanket, I think, "This is my favourite." Truth is, they're all gorgeous in different ways. Thanks for all the colour at a gloomy time of year!


Really looking forward to this pack becoming available. The colours are so pretty. I wish I could put colours together so well, but I lack the confidence. I don't find adult colouring relaxing, because I worry about my choice of colour being wrong. Keep on doing what you are doing it is so inspiring.
I hope you continue to feel better


I love the colours . Almost finished the Sunny log cabin. Addicted to your blankets.
Waiting for april to see them in the shop.
So much pleasure time by hooking , relaxing and coming in harmony with my thoughts.


You have an amazing talent and a keen eye for color! Thank you and lovely work! :)


I was looking at your cupcake pinterest board and thought that any of them would be beautiful to serve at a wedding instead of a wedding cake. I love coming to your blog to see all the color. On a dark winter's day, it is uplifting. Wish I lived near you.


Oh Lucy you've done it again, those beautiful pastel colours! How can I resist, I'll have to hurry and finish the cosy blanket I'm making, had the kit for Christmas, hope you are feeling more like your old self, keep on writing if you can, I'll keep on reading, love your blog so much, look after yourself, enjoy all that colour.

Love all your blankets especially the harmony one. I use pegs to play with colour too but they don't always make to the blanket stage just enjoy the playing. Look forward to your next chat . Enjoy your fireside Sarah @motherbirdmakes


I've just finished the harmony blanket, thank you! Your blog and the blanket have been great therapy for me this winter. I just don't know which blanket to choose for my next project!

Lucy, this is one of my all-time favourite posts on your blog. It's a huge treat to see your various colour palettes altogether like this and particularly fun to see how your choices are changing as time goes on. Wonderful. More than a year ago, when you were inviting people to crochet along with you on your coast ripple, I committed to starting my own, but said I'd do it in deep reds and blues. I finished it! I'm not on instagram but you can see it here: http://shintanglestudio.typepad.com/blog/2015/10/firewater-crocheted-throw.html. My blanket is certainly not your palette, but I would never have done it had I not been inspired by your lovely seaside hues. I really, really hope that sometime you will show us your scrapbook pages.


Love all your blankets! Made a few bags, and am halfway through a blanket.....
I've recently found a magazine (in country New South Wales!) I hadn't seen before, called Daphne's Diary (http://www.daphnesdiary.com/en/) which has a mix of colours that I find very appealing... reading through your comments I think I need to pick out the colours (maybe I'll even need to make some colour pegs!) and see where that takes me.....

Susan Smith

Wow, wow, wow!!! All so gorgeous and a feast for the eyes and senses. Take care.


Your colours resonate, but most importantly, and most heartfelt-ly, you resonate ... "I tend to live life with eyes and heart wide, wide open, seeking pleasure in my surroundings and soaking up inspiration wherever I can find it. I just love the thread of colourfulness that runs through my days, it makes me very very very happy" xxxx


Such beautiful cupcake colours, I am always so excited when you start a new blanket Lucy! I would love to see you do another 'squares' blanket like the harmony but maybe in warmer colours with a red base?


There is so much pleasure to be had in the planning of a creative project, I think - almost as much as the actual doing of the project for me!


Is there a place on this blog where you disguss in depth the making of your color pegs.

Kathy Wolfe

Love,love,love it can't wait to make this one. love your eye for color

Jo Bleaden

I also love choosing colours and have been inspired in similar ways. I must thank you for introducing me to Stylecraft a few years ago. It has made blanket making so much more affordable and paved the way for infinite possibilities x


Those cakes look so delicious! Your colour combinations are always really inspiring.


I love the way you put the colours together, enjoyed this post. There comes a day I will make one of those blankets of you ;>D


I'm in love, love, love with the pastel(cupcake)colors!! I finished the Cottage blanket last year and the Coast blanket last week so I'll be anxiously awaiting this yarn pack so I can start a new blanket.
