Hi Lucy, I’m looking forward to doing the woodland cal once my wool has arrived. I haven’t crochet for years so been practising with odd wool that I have. I also self taught so I don’t know when through the back or the front of the loop means.

HAPPY NEW YEAR LUCY to you and your family...

Thanking you again for all your wonderful uplifting blogs and of course including your photographs and most of all, for taking the time to give us all those terrific patterns..

Must try to get back to my crochet..I have been doing a bit of knitting recently..

Happy New Year Lucy! Thank you for such a lovely wintery Christmassy post. I do miss having Christmas in the winter, though it almost felt like winter last night with the storm that hit Auckland, albeit with the humidity and no snow. Looking forward to your next post. Hugs Rose x

Oh your wonderful colours so beautiful. Where can I find your sock pattern my little niece would love rainbow socks too.


Thank you for inspiring me yet again, and apparently you have inspired others in my part of the USA. I fell in love with the rainbow sock yarn from WYS, looked it up on the web site of my trusty local yarn shop last night, and found that they had six in stock. When I went to purchase it this morning I got the last one. Your happy influence spreads far and wide. :)

Happy New Year Lucy, I did enjoy your post, and especially agree with the enjoyment you get when meeting up with like minded crafty friends, I too meet twice weekly at our craft place and so look fwd to it. I look fwd to all your 2018 posts, best wishes, Carolyn.

Happy New Year Lucy, hope the little (and now not so little) peeps are on the mend. I've been housebound since 4th Dec and still not well enough to crochet :-(
I've just caught up with the story of your studio, the beautiful stained glass window on the way to your room was in the door of my smallest bedroom of the house I had for 35 years. When ill health and widowhood forced me to move I replaced the door and 5 years later it's still standing in my bathroom leaning against the wall.
I need to move again due to health and the door will come with me in the hope I'll find somewhere to use it. In the meantime it will remind me of you as well as my previous life.
Do you still share with Tracey?

Happy New Year to you and yours Lucy.....good health and happiness in 2018. Keep writing your lovely blogs,they are always a joy.

Bless you, Lucy, your Christmas looks perfect, though I'm sorry to hear that the little ones were poorly.

Happy New Year!
Love Debbie xx


Lucy, my 6 year old grandson is into Lego Ninjago. His aunties thought it would be a good idea to give him the Destiny Bounty ship for Christmas. The set is over 2000 pieces and took my daughter 8 hours on Christmas Day to make it but his face when it was complete was so worth it. She swears that next year he’s getting books! Looking forward to your CAL and wish you a happy new year.

Looking at the lovely things you hang on your mantelpiece makes me wish I had a fireplace :)


Happy New Year Lucy, I am so exited to be starting my first CAL ever especially as its with you


Blwyddyn Newydd Dda, Lucy! Your snow pictures from last Friday are lovely - we were heading back from Bridlington to Blackpool that day, over Saddleworth moor on the motorway, which was not a pleasant trip! The snow filled clouds made it so dark at 3pm that it felt like the middle of the night, and the conditions had me gripping the steering wheel so hard, it's amazing that I didn't leave hand prints! However, we got back safe and sound, and it's good to know that the snow looked pretty somewhere, even if it didn't fill me with joy as we travelled :-)


Happy new year to you Lucy and all your wonderful peeps that follow you,feels like a big family.When I finish my log cabin blanket I’ll be crocheting some of your gorgeous leaves.Look forward to more inspiration 😘😎


Happy New Year to you and your lovely family, Lucy. I'm all ready to start the Woodland CAL tomorrow, and have just finished your crochet bag to store it in. My New Year resolution is to visit your group at Cooper's one day, if that's ok. I am just outside York so not too far away but, will wait for the longer days and lighter mornings x

I'm all set for the Woodland CAL! I'm so excited too.. it's my first CAL with you. This design and colors grabbed me and I jumped right on board. I'm glad you had such a nice cozy Christmas. I was curious what grown up things your older kids wanted. See you on Friday!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Happy New Year!! Waiting (not so) patiently for Friday so I can start the Woodland blanket. Desperately hoping I get on better with this one than the Moorland Lol. Your tension and mine are truly at opposite poles :) Having said that once I'd gone DOWN 2 hook sizes and reconciled myself to needing considerably more stitches to get the right size I made 2 Moorland blankets as presents and they were very well received :). But the colours for the Woodland are soooooooo gorgeous I want this one to work straight away so I can keep it for myself. Anyway glad you had a good quiet Christmas, so did we, and thanks for all the inspiration. Love O. xx

Crafty Cath

Happy New Year! I love the wintry photos, the cosy fireplace and the rainbow socks! Wish I could join you in the CAL but must finish 4 blankets first....my NY resolution. Have a peaceful and relaxing year :)


Thanks for this lovely blog in the New Year, hope it will be a good one for you and your beloved.x


Happy New Year to you and your family Lucy xx Not forgetting Tilly too! She sounds a bit like my Smudge.. she's a look don't touch kinda gal !! Lovely seeing your out and about photos and what a bonus for the children getting snow! Best wishes for 2018 & Happy creating. Gez xx


Happy new year to you too. Hope Groot hasn't gone up the Hoover!
We went to the West Bay Wallow on Boxing Day and thought of you. Freezing...but lots raised for charity. Are you going to show us this year's planner...please!


Loved sharing Christmas with you, Lucy. Your decorations are so festive and beautiful. BTW, our cat is EXACTLY like yours - mostly independent and not very interested in us except when he WANTS a few minutes of attention ... or food/treats. I guess it's in their DNA. Happy New Year! Wishing you good health and much happiness from the San Francisco Bay Area. LOVE reading your blog and viewing your gorgeous pictures.

i love rum paradise, i have the double knit i'm planning for socks, after i've knitted slipper socks for my 24 yo son at his request! i also showed him how to knit when he was home for christmas and he knitted a chunky cowl for himself and now his flatmates have asked if he could knit one for them too! this knitting lark is addictive!


I always love your Christmas posts as Christmas really is "the most wonderful time of the year" for me. We amazingly had a white Christmas here for the first time in nine years! It was magical and just what we needed. Thank you for sharing your life with us here in blogland.
I hope 2018 is a year of much joy, healing and happiness for you and your family.

Christy Hinkle

Happy New Year! to you also. I am getting very excited for the CAL starting on Friday...my yarn came earlier this week...I have been crocheting your original big floppy yarn bag. Should be done by Friday so I can have all the wonderful colored yarn ready to crochet.Love your pictures and writing. See you on Friday.
