Dear Lucy

Just wanted to get in touch with you for the very first time. I read your posts regularly & am a fairly new hooker but have followed your hints & tips. I luv your use of colour & it cheers me up to click on your website Colour is my thing!

I do hope you are feeling better these days & you take care my love. :-)

Lucy, that ball of blue-green yarn is so lovely. What brand and color is it?


Lovely lovely colour

You take such wonderful photos of your life, Lucy. Are you able to say what the blue/green sock yarn is? It looks like a pair of socks I'd like to try knitting (you've inspired me with your sock knitting adventures).

Lovely. Looking forward to leaf pattern, thank you for all!


Hi ! I don't know if you read your comments, but I have something to tell you. I'm a french crocheter (sorry for my english.)and I love your blog, but this saturday afternoon I was at a "Fabric festival" (?not sure : "Salon du tissu" ?.. ) and how surprised I was to recognise a picture printed on a fabric : a picture of your Happy Flower Decoration ( http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/happy-flower-decoration.html ) I wanted to make sure that you are aware of the commercial use of your picture... Are you ? (I took a picture of this fabric if you need it, but I don't know the name of the brand or designer of this fabric unfortunately. )
You can contact me via my email address if you need.


No wonder you smile at that blanket it's gorgeous.

My lace shawl wool always comes in hanks. Winding wool by hand takes me back to when I was young when wool always came in hanks. My Mam & I used to take turns one holding the hank between their hand & the other winding both of us chatting. Happy memories!

Lovely colours, such a a pretty post xx


Looking forward to seeing those leaves on the twigs!


Pretty colours, just what's needed on a cold, wet, sleety morning....loving that edging, they make such a difference to a blanket don't they?


What a beautiful post! I'm a colour freak too, can't get by without it. I love your pale daffodils in the little blue jug - perfect. Have a lovely weekend!

Have just bought myself a ball winder £9.99 and the cheapest swift thingie £18 on amazon because I have got 2 skeins of ultra fine alpaca/silk to knit a special shawl for my sisters 50th birthday. The yarn is so delicate I didn't trust myself winding it by hand.
The swift and winder are a revelation. It's such fun to do. And so satisfying to have a perfect yarn cake.
Wish I'd got one years ago.
Can't wait for the blanket ta dah. Xx

looking forward to Monday to order the cupcake blanket. love the way you put the different colours together.

I think you would enjoy using a skein wound with a nostepinne (a bit like a short length of a broom handle). It would give you a very evenly wound ball of yarn that pulls from the centre.

I am looking forward to seeing your Cupcake reveal and how to make it!! Love your blog, beautiful writing and wonderful pictures of a lovely life being lived!! thank you, from Iowa Happy Spring!!


There is nothing lovelier than fresh flowers especially a surprise bouquet!
Color and texture two things that I love and inspire me!

What a colorful and happy post! What a wonderful bouquet you received.. how nice! I don't think I told you but your button pitcher inspired me so that I searched many times for one and finally found one. I think I'll pick a bouquet of lilacs from my yard today and put them in my button jug. You continue to inspire me. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Your log cabin blanket is divine, just love the pattern and the colours. Really beautiful. The flowers are exquisite too and I just adore the rose in particular. Wish you had the name if it as I would love to grow it. Each of my grandchildren has requested a blanket. I am trying to work my way through crocheting the first which comprises 48 squares - hope I live long enough!! Thanks for your great blog.


Glorious post, especially on such a gloomy day in my corner of England. Have a lovely weekend!


Colour just makes my heart sing! Thank you for sharing 😄🌻
