Hi Lucy, I have been following your instructions and seem to have quite a bit of yarn leftover, am I right in thinking you have a cunning plan to use those ones up at the end? If not ,I think I've gone wonky somewhere. It's a fab blanket to do and I'm doing the colour wash as well as doing a hydrangea blanket in your coastal colours.
Thanks once again
Tracey

I am finding it difficult to find the pattern instructions for the colourwash blanket.

Ann

Hiya. What’s the best way to hide a join in the wool? I don’t want to pull back to the beginning of a row. Or leave the knot making the blanket slightly bulky at the knot. Thank you

Ruth McNally

I have purchased your yarn pack,just checking that this is enough yarn to complete the colourwash version of the cal ?

Cheryl Jones

Hello
I've chosen the colourwash pattern and am doing the king size blanket. I'm worried as i did a swatch which came out very slighty bigger ( no problem there as I figured I would just buy more yarn if needed), however I've finished the pistachio rows and still have more than a ball of yarn left..... what am i doing wrong...or is it used in the border later?
Lovely stitch!!

Waiting for my yarn, I'll catch on when it arrives. It will be My blanket, the first one I will make for me. Can't wait to start it!

Serena

Hello Lucy,
Thank you so much for this beautiful pattern, I’d love to do the colour wash, and when I looked at the Sweetpea pack, it did not say if it was also the colour wash.

I don’t want to order the wrong one. As I’d make a double bed size.
Does the same pack work for both?

IM

I saw a typo referring to' Sweep Pea' which made me think we should be called "Sweepeas'.

Karen m

I was going suggest the collective noun should be sweet pea bunch....but someone recommended, sweet pea podders and that's brilliant!

Hi,
Just wanted to say "Hi" as I stumbled on your blog when researching Temperature Blankets.
I love your Sweet Pea Colour Palette - truly stunning!
Unfortunately I wont join in your CAL as I have started my Temperature Crochet - although I realise it'll be loooong so I am attempting a scarf to begin. Added - I want to mark the temp change thro the day so 8am temp, 12noon temp and max temp. All in a row.
I am inspired by different stitches and techniques so am toying with idea of a different pattern per month - I may work some of your trellis for Month of Feb. I love your ripples and will have a ripple month in the temperate colours I have selected.
Good luck with CAL - I am excited to see its progress! X

Anne

The group name could be "Posies" or "Petals"

So Looking forward to joining in on this Sweet Pea crochet along. Thank you Lucy for your creations, stunning colourways and generous sharing of your pattern designs.

Marian

Oh my goodness. I may have to make both. They are beautiful, Lucy. I can’t wait to get started. I am looking forward to the challenge of keeping up with the CAL, week by week. I am assuming an average of about 3 colours per day should cover it and allow time to keep on top of sewing in the ends. All knitting projects have been completed and who needs to do housework anyway? (It is overrated in my book)

Une belle année neuve en perspective !? Merci pour toutes ces explications

Amy Davis

Hi. This will be my first CAL and I’m so excited. The colors of the yarn are stunning and I immediately fell in love with them. I haven’t decided what size I’m doing so I bought two sets of yarn just in case. I am going to practice and get my gauge figured out so I’m ready on January 4!!

Carolyn Reed

Mornings licy
I have just had my yarn delivered and hooks arriving tomorrow. I am a utter beginner to crochet (very experienced knitter) so hoping my creative capabilities transfer well! I think I’m going with the ‘colour wash’ effect. It appeals to my eye.
I think you should call us ‘peaties’! Can’t wait for next Friday.

PAT BERRETT

Hello all just joined, this is my first crochet cal and am so excited. Just ordered my pack can't make up my mind wether too order another.
I am so pleased to be joining everyone on this project, Thank You Lucy for found this lovely blog.
Pat another sweet pea powder.

Barbara

Hello Lucy,

I'm new to your site and am anxious to start with the Sweet Pea CAL! I have one question, would this be suitable doubled? I have a difficult time with smaller hooks. I thought about ordering 2 packs and then following the pattern as instructed. Thank you so much! Can hardly wait to get started. xo ~Barbara

Josephine

Royal Mail did a wonderful job. UK to US in 6 days, with the holiday rush. My pack arrived on Christmas Eve. I’ve never done a CAL, but I thought it would be a wonderful way to keep me on track with a project so it doesn’t languish in my WIP bag. Thanks Lucy — looking forward to getting started!

Lisa Smallridge

I received my Sweet Pea yarn pack in Australia very quickly, thank you!. The colours are gorgeous! Like "Anne Dearle" above, I like your initial layout of colours graduating from greens up to the purples. (The initial photo with the sweet peas on top). To me, this is the most life-like, and very calming to look at. I would like to try that version, (even though the other designs are pretty, too). Our Summer here is very changeable, with lots of stretches of cool, rainy weather, so I'm looking forward to starting my Sweet Pea on 4 January. Lisa from Melbourne, 21Dec18

Marlen

This will be a wedding gift for very dear friends of us, who are getting married in April. Just a quick question: I am thinking of doing the colour wash version, but with the cosy stripes from one of your previous blankets. Would that still work with the border pattern? Thank you so much for all the work, that you put into this. Have a lovely Christmas and see you in the new year, ready for some hooky action :)

Donna

I just ordered my kit. Looking forward to doing this. It will be my first CAL. The yarn is stunning. I am attracted to these colors. Looks like a lot of fun.
Also, I have tried to subscribe to your blog but it won't accept the information. Something is broken?

Karyn

Call them Sweeties ? Perhaps. I've made two moorlands and just finished the coastal ripple and love it. Thanks for the crochet colour! Enjoy your opportunity to nest, we hardly ever have dreadful weather here and I miss the opportunity to say 'No, the weather is too dreadful, I'll stay inside and crochet! ' Happy Christmas!

Julie

My 12 year old says we should be the Pea podders :-)
Can't wait to start. This one will be a gift for daughter, she has fallen in love with the colourwash scheme.

henriet

The last few weeks my internet security gives me a warning about your website. Could there be anything that needs checking? Do others get warnings?
Lovely sweet pea colours!

Susan Smith

DD & I both love the new rug & will think about ordering in the New Year & start a bit later than others, as it is summer here in Oz. I'm actually using up the scraps from 2 of your other packs I've bought over the years & am making a giant granny square, which I'll possibly donate in winter to a charity. Thanks for hosting the CALs, your wonderful blog & providing us with beautiful soothing rhythmic patterns. Take care & a very Merry Christmas to you & your family.
