VERY WELL DONE LUCY on all these awards - totally well deserved. I visit family in north London from time to time in and around the areas where you were. I love it, but like you, it is nice to get home again, away from the busyness. Many thanks for your truly inspiring blogs. Annette

I visited the Show an Thursday too and thought of you as I passed the Stylecraft Stand!!! I should have waited until you arrived to thank you for the blag!


You are an absolute inspiration Lucy, and your awards are SO well-deserved, biggest congratulations!! Learning to crochet with your wonderful tutorials, so generously shared, saved my sanity and I am very grateful to you. It is so fitting that you have been recognised in this way!! And, what a great way to celebrate your birthday too!


Congratulations Lucy!! Well deserved! Thank you so much for sharing your lovely color sense and beautiful designs with the world. I'm most of the way through making your Moorland blanket with the cosy stripe design and it has truly been a pleasure. Looking forward to all you imagine in the future!

Congrats Lucy! Your awards are well and truly deserved. You have inspired and entertained me for a long time. I don't know how old LB is but I was here before he was born. I crocheted along with you and your first ripple blanket as well as subsequent ones. And yes, "There's no place like home."

A big congrats! No surprise you won so many, way to go!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


Congratulations, well done you! Loved the London photos but you're right, it is an exciting, exhausting city. Wish I were a train trip away instead of an overnight flight.


Ooooh! Is that the Lagoon stylecraft yarn pack? So pretty!

Happy belated birthday and congratulations on your well-deserved awards. It was wonderful to meet you at Yarndale! I feel the same as you about visiting London - my son lived on one of those canal boats for about a year and even that is hectic! Around the Camden and all of Central London areas they have to move them to a new mooring place every 2 weeks which takes some organising. We helped him to turn around in that 'basin' at Camden Lock - I have never had my photograph taken by so many folk whilst trying to negotiate a tricky manoeuvre in a long canal boat!! It's fun to visit but give me the peace and tranquillity of life in Yorkshire. xxx


Congratulations! I was so happy to read that you won your categories. You really deserve it. I love the look of your crochet sneak peek. I can't wait to find out what it is

Colleen Bowers

Wonderful, Lucy. You deserve all the awards, as you have done so much to promote and revive the art of crochet. We are all enjoying the ride. XX


Go you! Congratulations! You deserved every moment of glory for all the work you put in and all the pleasure we bloggy-followers get back! x!

Karen Bond

Happy belated birthday Lucy. Glad you enjoyed all that gadding about in London - but oh isn't it nice when you get home again... Absolutely LOVE your project bag by the way (bag envy here..) xx


Congratulations Lucy on your awards so enjoy your blog and your great patterns best out there am doing your ripple blanket kit from wool wearhouse along with knitted socks. Your designs are lovely and your blog is a delight to read thank you so much.Happy belated birthday for last Thursday glad you had a great birthday xx


Congratulations Lucy, that's absolutely brilliant news, and very well deserved. I'm so thrilled for you, and glad that you had a lovely couple of days in the big city too. A memorable occasion I think. Very well done you. CJ xx


Belated Birthday Wishes Lucy and Huge Congratulations on your well deserved awards!!!!

Susan Smith

Congrats, congrats, ooh, how many do I need. Anyway well done you & so rewarding for all your hard work.
I can relate to your city apprehension, as I am not a fan of large ones with crowds & always look forward to seeing sky, hills, trees & farm animals again.
The canal above has no castle, so not a bit like yours, though the narrowboats are similar. Look forward to seeing what the next year brings for you & would like to try & email with a question, but can't seem to find any sort of link. Take care.


Congratulations Lucy, what a wonderful thing to happen. Your work is inspiring and deserves the recognition you received. Being new to crochet I was not aware it is such a big thing. Should have expected it really as you has got me hooked!! (round 6 ready to go I'm amazed).


Congratulations with your birthday and with all you awards. You deserve these awards for all you inspiring work.

I wish you a great day, Margaret

Annamaria O'Brien

Congratulations!!! You truly deserve these awards! Very happy for you and grateful that you inspired me and so many other bloggers, crafters AND MOMS to create beautiful things!!!
Love and hugs! Enjoy your days!

*C*O*N*G*R*A*T*U*L*A*T*I*O*N*S*!* Lucy! All of your wins are well-deserved and I'm proud that I've been reading your blog and following along on your rise to yarny fame. I feel you are a friend and I'm proud to know you. We're at the beach in our caravan and there are "Lucy" blankets over the back of the sofa and two chairs and pillow to match. Have a super week! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Congratulations on all those wins!
I have been to the Knitting & Stitching show for the last 3 years but this year missed it. And next year I hope to visit Yarndale!
So well said about the energy in London. I absolutely love central London, so happy each time to go there.


bravo Lucy, félicitations pour tous vos jolis ouvrages.
