Can you please clarify if '1 dc in;' is a typo? Many thanks!

Whenever I need a pick-me-up I come to your blog. You are so incredibly talented with your ability to make colour sing. Thank you so much for all of your hard work and willingness to share. The border is absolutely perfect and I know it's going to be absolutely smashing!


Hi Lucy, I've been following your blog for a little while now and I really love it and all your wonderful creations, they're really inspiring and I'm always really excited to see what you are thinking of creating next. I've only just started crocheting but with your brilliant picture tutorials I have been able to follow them and I made your Cozy blanket and a have had a go at making lots of your other things too. Thank you. For all your effort and thought that goes into your blog, for when you feel like writing it and for even when you don't! it is very much appreciated. I made your Summer Harmony blanket with your CAL ( a little behind admittedly!) and really enjoyed making the squares of the fabulous colours you put together but wondered if you might be able to help me with a colour dilemma I have!! Instead of making the blanket up in the colour wash way, I wanted to do it the first 'random' way you had thought of but now don't really know which colour to use for the sixth round before I do your border colours! I have had a go at trying to put some colours with it but can't seem to get them to go together, but with your experience I thought you might be able to suggest some colours for me please ( I always really like your combinations)any advice would be very gratefully received . Sorry this is so long but I wasn't sure how else to get in touch as it's the first time I've written to you! Thanks once again Lucy and I hope you don't fall asleep trying to read this mahoosive message!!!!! Becki :)


I'm sitting this CAL out, out of sheer laziness. I've been working on another very "ends" intensive blanket, so I just couldn't bring myself to join this time. But it's FABULOUS as are all of your blankets Lucy. I love it!! Maybe one day when the dust settles in my life I will attempt it. I do hope you are coping a little better with your loss. My mum has been gone 5 years now and this is the first year I feel I have really reached an acceptance point. Best wishes for you. Off to look through your list of projects to see if you ever wrote a pattern for that lovely little fish needle holder with the beads. I love that thing!! ;)


Really loving that border - it will be lovely and wide and will set off the blanket perfectly. The finished blanket will be absolutely beautiful xxxx Kathryn


Still working on my square but have a question. Do you change hook sizes every other row through all 17 rows of border or just the second row??

Annie Brodrick

Thank You, Lucy ♥︎ You are an inspiration!!!


Love it 😊


Bellissima, complimenti! Grazie per la condivisione.

Love it Luce, your colour blending is beautiful. I have bought the pack & my 1st go at making one of yours ... can't wait to start, wish me luck!!

Lots of love from your stitchy friend,
Katie B x x x


nice one amazing blog


Oh my I really have taken on a big big task but am determined to see it through. The blanket is just so lovely how can I not. Just 14 of the first two colours finished still a long way to go, I'm pleased to say they are pretty even in size, quite an achievement for novice. Like Nichole Mays patchwork quilting is my thing, however it is having to play second fiddle for the time being. I will continue to follow you Lucy even tho your blanket is nearly finished you bring such pleasure with each post.


Lucy as always this blanket is beautiful. Cheers for Sydney

Teresa Kasner

That is one eye-poppingly gorgeous and colorful blanket! And what an amazing border! It must surely be one of the biggest ones you've made! Bravo, my friend! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Thank you. I am a little slow but still going. Too many family commitments to keep up this week, but haven't stopped. As always a great border for a blanket.

Susan Smith

Now that is looking absolutely cracking. You get the squares joined so nicely. I'm joining squares at the moment & they are higgledy piggledy, but I hope that the border will make it look OK & a good press maybe. Love seeing how you work through your pattern designing. Thanks, have a good week & take care.


It's lovely, just perfect for a summer day on the beach, I shall look forward to seeing in situ. Have a wonderful time. CJ xx


Looks lovely. Beautiful colours as always. Cathy x

Nicole Mays

I am really enjoying this project. It is so happy and fun to do. I learned to crochet many, many years ago and made a lot of items. Then I learned to knit and that took over. Then I learned to quilt and that is my current and main passion, with some knitting thrown in once in a while. I've been following you for a year or so and have been drooling over the beautiful blankets and other items you've been making. When I saw you start this project I finally broke down and ordered the yarn and like I said, am having the greatest time. Thank you for this fund project and all you do.

Miriam Ayala

I agree with Jan I would love to see what you see when you come up with something either a border or a new project. Well done Lucy thanks

Angela-Southern USA

Love the deep border! I agree, with colorful squares a deep border sets it off nicely. I look forward to seeing photos of it on the beach.x

Daffy Suburbia

Stunning as ever - looking forward to seeing it finished. Hope you get some sun to use it in.

Jan Legge

You are amazing! I would love to see the colours you see through your eyes just for a day! This blanket is just stunning and your borders look truely scrumptious!
