Hi Lucy!
I am looking forward to the CAL in January. Tonight I ordered my Sweetpea pack from WW. Looking forward to starting the new year with a new project!
Been a follower of your blog for many years from the USA. :) Marianne

I'm new to your CAL's Lucy. Could you let me know what size crochet hook will be needed for the sweet pea CAL.

Jan Buckley

I think I need to join in with this CAL. The colours in the yarn pack are devine and the pattern is gorgeous.

Hi Wool arrived today - fabulous. Cant wait to try
crocheting. Think I can do it, always wanted to. Was
inspired by the beautiful colours.


I love your yarn packs!! I’ve bought 4 and now this one!! I love using them for in the round patterns as every color blends nicely!! Can’t wait to get mine!!

Cheryl Thoms

Just placed my order for the yarn pack. Can't wait for the CAL. Love the colors

I know that you talked about it before but what calendar do you use?


Love this call 🥰🥰😍😍😍 You mentioned you want tent so see our blankets
Maybe if you start a Facebook group you can see it
I’m making the cost ripple now but I want to start this lovely call in January 😍😍
I hope I gave you a good tip
Kind regards


It would be great to join - but yarn pack is out of order now.. so I set my notification and I'm waiting for yarns to be available in the store :)

Hi Lucy, My yarn pack arrived yesterday. I've never done a CAL before, although I've been knitting and crocheting for 58 years! (Learned at age 8 years). I've bought your packs before and made my mum in law the Coast Ripple. I'm now going to make her the Sweet Pea ready for her 86th birthday next May. I love your blog, been following it for years. Keep up the good work xxxx


I’ve got my pack, well, when I say got, I mean winging its way to me with the nice people of Royal Mail! I’ve never done a CAL before so I’m excited about this one. My Grandad used to grow sweet peas so it will remind me of him. I’ve also put the moorland pack on my Christmas list. I missed this because I got somewhat distracted from crochet for a time by our two kittens who liked to run off with my yarn, but I love love LOVE the colours! Thanks Lucy xx.

Sorry, skip this one. Still working on cal 2017....


Yey, another amazing CAL to look forward to from Aus. I have requested notification for yarn . It is going to be sooooo beautiful. Thank you so much.


Yarn pack was back in stock this morning and I ordered mine. I still have 2 blankets in progress, the cotton ripple and another. Love your colors and patterns!


Are you planning to do a King Cole cotton pack for this blanket?

Crafty Cath

I want to do the beautiful sweet pea blanket!!! I love those bright spring colours - so fresh and exhilarating, but I haven't started the Moorland one yet!!! I want to do the woodland one and the cupcake one too! I want/need them all....I also want to give up work so I can do them. I'm sure my partner will understand after all he gets to snuggle up in them;). I love the practice closed granny squares you make so they are so neat :)

Angie D.

I love everything about this post and the way you are inspired by nature. Your projects are always so harmonious in color and design. I would love to subscribe to your blog but for some reason when I click on the subscribe button it takes to my news app.


Absolutely stunning and perfectly sweet pea colors. As I might have mentioned in another post, this makes me think of my aunt who had varying success (year to year) with her sweet peas also. But she loved them none the less and when they grew well they were magical.

Another gorgeous colorful blanket!!! The fragrance at that show must have been glorious! Have a great day!xxxxxxxxxx

sandra dorey

I LOVE the colours and the pattern - another gorgeous blanket to make in January!
An idea has been nagging away at me - so here goes.
I'm wondering about having an Attic24 Sweet Pea gathering in February for anyone who is making the blanket and would like to meet up in either West Bay or Bridport (Dorset, UK), venue to be decided once I know how many are interested. Some people might like to make a weekend of it and explore the area.
My idea is that we meet in a Cafe or Hotel for coffee and crochet on Sunday 3rd of February. Anyone interested?
Hope this is ok with you Lucy - if you have any misgivings at all let me know.


Just beautiful! But please do tell us where you bought the sweet pea seedlings from...

Joy Teale

I just love sweet peas and I would have had my nose in every bunch if I had been at the show.They might have asked me to leave! I have ordered my yarn and look forward to its arrival in Australia. This will be my first blanket and I was thinking about doing the Cosy Stripe as I am a very new crocheter. But if your CAL really is easy then maybe that's what I will do. I love reading your blogs Lucy and looking at the beautiful photographs.


Your story and photos are so lovely! I am looking forward to this, as I am closing in on the home stretch of my first blanket, Cosy Stripe. I had a feeling I might not get an order in this time, but Wool Warehouse is great and I will place my order soon! The colors for this blanket are so sweet!

Donna Philpott

Beautiful colors & pattern. So I'm planning to follow along with the CAL & that WILL brighten up the cold winter months! My First CAL & I'm excited! I've got my name on the waiting list for the sweetpea pack & I think it will be there Nov.29, so everyone who wants one should let Wool Warehouse know!

Teresa Kasner

Hi Lucy, well, this one speaks to me, I love the Springy, Summery colors. I went to WW and.. they're SOLD OUT of these packs! I will try to order again on Friday. Good job to sell out.. don't they know how much you're loved to have been prepared for lots of sales? LOL! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
