It gives me such pleasure to see everyone out there making things! In decades past you had to make it, or you had nothing. I know this desire to "make" & "create" things is alive and well in so many of us.

I have a long time love affair with sweet peas. Partly due to a three day arts & crafts celebration is our area called the Sweet Pea Festival. You can read about it if interested at sweetpeafestival.org. Many forms of art are displayed, performed, for sale - and yes, there is a sweet pea flower show!

Your sweet pea CAL posts have been just beautiful and so fun to read.

Hi Lucy,
This is my first CAL and am so enjoying the trellis stitch and colourwash combo.

Am inspired to work another in posy.

Well done to everyone! I love the creativity of this community! The hedgehogs are very cute and I'm tempted to start one myself. xxxxxxxxxxxx

I assume that last week was the final week for the throw size blanket and I need to unpull the last row and redo it to create the even edge. Looking forward to the instructions for the borders.


Can't believe we're nearing the end. Is there a border after part 6 stripes please?


Evening have you any suggestions how I can shorten the length for the colour wash baby blanket I read that it's easier with the posy but I love the colour wash one just wounded how. Angela


So many of these projects are amazing, but I especially love the Blooming Flower cushion made with the Sweet Pea colors. It's such a perfect design fit for the color palette! Both soothing and cheerful at the same time.


Wow! This is amazing. I love the wreath and the "A walk in the Garden" cushion! :)
Thanks for the inspiration.

Like your blog very much-very inspiring! I noticed the triangle blamket posted by Liz - would it be possible to tell me the link either to her site or for the pattern? I would appreciate it very much.

The other problem with a stripey blanket is that if you make a mistake, there can be a lot to undo to get back to it. I have just started working again on my Woodland blanket at about row 30 after breaking my wrist last spring; crochet is the last of my crafts that I can do comfortably.
I love the Sweet Pea colours as my Dad grew them competitively and their perfume is the scent of summer to me, but I think I will make a second colour wash blanket with the pack.

This is coming together so beautifully and I'm loving seeing all of the different projects. This is my first CAL and I'm really enjoying it...even if it's a bit hot under it in 40+C temperatures! Perfect accompaniment to watching test cricket on the TV.

Teresa Kasner

I loved each and every photo you shared of all your and other's projects using your inspired and colorful Sweet Pea colors! I'm a bit behind on my blanket as we got a new puppy a week ago and I missed some time hooking due to doggie things. But I am taking this day to catch up!! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Crafty Cath

Wow amazing clever people! Thanks for sharing :) I'm inspired to complete my UFO's so I can start the sweet pea blanket too. I want to make all of them!! Love those hedgehogs and the cushions and everything!!!


I love the progress photos . All so different.

charlotte m.

I am always amazed at people's creativity with these things. Such beautiful works. I am so loving this group of crafty folk.


LOVE the hedgehogs!!

Nancy MacMillan

What an amazingly stunning collection of work! Well done everyone, so lovely!!!


Lucy, we are in the middle of a polar vortex here in Michigan. So bitter cold. What a joy it is to see your posts. So full of color. I love color! So fun and inspirational. I've got to get the yarn out and start making things again. Beautiful work, everyone! I like coming here, it's like a safe beautiful place among all the trolling and ugly found elsewhere on the internet.

Nina Kellock

There are some incredibly talented, imaginative hookers out there, such colour and variety of projects is truly stunning. As is the inordinate amount of time and effort you put into showing us Lucy, not to mention how long it must take to do all the weekly CAL posts. I am sure it is well-appreciated by all your 'fans', and rightly so. You have inspired this old lady a lot, reinvigorated my love of crochet, so thank you for that.

Marinda Jansen van Rensburg

Thank you so much for including my pincushion pattern! I am loving the sweet pea colour story.

And oh my gosh, Sharon's little felt hedgehog is just a cuteness overload crocheting his own blanket!

Julie Caisey

Gorgeous crochet

Sharon, (How She Felt)

Thank you so much for including my little needle felt hedgehog. The colours of the sweetpea blanket have been giving me so much inspiration. I had started the year off feeling very deflated and I was struggling to get motivated with my felting work. It seems I just needed to take a little time with the crochet hook to get the creativity flowing again. Seeing all the different versions and everyone's progress is lighting up my Facebook feed every time I go online with the blankets being shared in the moorland group too.
Thank you so much Lucy for creating a wonderful escape! Xx

sandra dorey

This post is so DELICIOUS! Seeing all those amazing projects - what a gorgeous gallery of delights you have curated Lucy. Your colour mix is so very inspiring.
Thanks so much for including my little jacket There is a free pattern for the Pixie hat on my blog.
I will certainly take loads of photos on Sunday.


It just keeps getting more beautiful with each stripe!! Glad you included the final row instructions. I am going to end at row 72, which will be 6 feet long. I'm only 5'1" so 6 feet plus the border is big enough for me!!
And my blankets are all sofa blankets.
