A lovely yarny, colourful post - Subscription re-subscribed - can't wait for my LBC xx


to VP: I think what Lucy means by the 'edge of the Moorland Blanket' is the crocheted edging that goes all around the blanket once all the stripes are finished - not anything to do with the edges when you are doing the stripes. If you are having a problem with that - getting them straight? - I imagine it is to do with not crocheting into the turning chain of the previous row when you reach the end of each row, or not doing a turning chain at the start of each row rather than crocheting into the first stitch. Lucy explains all this better than I can, with photos, on her tutorial.


I want to lie down in that box of yarny goodness!


What a wonderful day - so envious. Love the box and well done for being a contributor.


Gorgeous colors for that cotton! What an amazing way to spend your Saturday!


Ooooh, all those gorgeous, scrummy colours! So looking forward to the Little Box of Crochet dropping through the postbox and seeing what's inside. Thank you for the sneaky preview.


I'm so glad you've 'finally worked out The Edge of the Moorland Blanket', how about sharing this revelation with all of us who have BOUGHT you wool pack and are struggling with this!


ooo- never heard of the Little Box of Crochet. Thank you Lucy for telling us about this. Glad you had a day to yourself at Stylecraft - looks great fun and so social.


I LOVE Tunisian crochet! I picked it up last year and did mostly all my projects in Tunisian. I wanted a knit look but knitting needles and I just don't get along.


Hi Lucy! You're such a good girl! Not long now till the 'ungagging'! It's very hard not to spill the beans isn't it? Especially when it's such a joyous project as yours! Loads of love, Amanda xxxx


Oh, I'm not a big fan of Tunisian crochet either, but have made a couple heavy pot holders using cotton yarn and Tunisian stitch. I have the instructions on my kindle if I ever want to do it again but wouldn't ever make anything very big with it. I have to tell you my adult daughter loves your blankets and the Stylecraft yarn. I made the Cozy blanket last year and am still working on the Cupcake one, but she saw the Moorland one you are doing now and wanted me to make her one of those! She wanted her own colors though, and she picked them out from Stylecraft, lots of purples, turquoise,other blues and a few greens. The pack arrived yesterday and the yarns are just beautiful. I think I'll do it with the colors dispersed randomly throughout, but she wants the Moorland stitch pattern. I'm working on finishing the Cupcake one now, I call it my Spring blanket, but want to hurry to get to the Moorland one! I have to say I love the Stylecraft yarn for this, the price is very good and I just can't find any yarn over here as good for the price.


One of my most fav posts in a while. Thank you for sharing your trip to Stylecraft with us. What a fun day indeed!


It was a lovely day, wasn't it? I think we were all concentrating hard whilst learning Tunisian crochet. I love the colours you picked out for the Little Box of Crochet and might just have to treat myself to the box!


Delightful colours! And the Little Box of Crochet sure sounds like a lovely idea! 😊

Please tell the kind folks at Stylecraft to continue to support talented bloggers like yourself. I have lots of options for yarn, living in North Carolina, (home to some fine yarn companies and lovely sheep) but have become a fan of Stylecraft due to wonderful kits I buy of your designs and others like Jane Crowfoot. I first picked up a hook about 45 years ago and this is a real golden age of crochet design and deserving of the support of the manufacturing side of things.


What a fun day you must have had, I love the blanket lucia made. That box of yarny balls looks so inspiring. I can't wait to see what you designed.


I would love to have been there! Living in Northern France I have nothing like that here but I have now subscribed to Little crochet Box and cannot wait for the first one to arrive. My budget is tight but it had to be done. It classes as my bit of bling!


That looks like an amazing day out. Also, I had no idea there were so many crochet bloggers- I need to spend some time going and looking at everyone's sites. Joanne xoxo

I bought a Tunisian crochet hook, read a bit about it and then thought no, not for me either. Too complicated...give me a simple crochet hook and a ball of yarn and, well, happy days!!!! I'm so pleased Amanda asked you to do LBC...perfect connection really and Im looking forward to seeing your little colorful project. 🌈


Most of my favourite bloggers in one photo! Unbelievable! So glad you had a lovely day x

How lovely to spend a Saturday with a like-minded group of ladies & I can just imagine the joy of playing with all the yarn too. Lucia's rug is lovely. Will wait patiently to see what you come up with using those little balls of cotton. I must admit that the box of colour is delicious. Love, love, love. Have a good week & take care.

So pleased that you are this months designer with Little Box Of Crochet, love these little boxes coming through the post very month. My two favourite crochet "things" rolled into one. (Sorry to call you a thing).


I love the 'little box of crochet' idea,in this case I live in the wrong country lol. I was born in Hull, but now live in Christchurch, New Zealand. I love your patterns, thank you for all of the time you put into them.
