I love your colour selection Lucy! Am just starting a baby blanket in Sweet Pea trellis pattern, but am going be challenged by just doing it in white !!!
Easy enough pattern with great explanations and diagrams. Just hope I don't get too bored with just the white !
Thanks so much


Thank you for sharing. I am legally blind and it will take me a little longer, to do the pattern. I see a little in each eye, Love the pattern. Marlene

Hi Lucy- I am a bit behind as I was traveling but I am just finishing the last row ! And I wanted to let you know how delighted I am with it.... straight and perfect! It feels like a tiny miracle. I just don't know how you do it! I took some pics of my blanket while I was camping in the autonomous tent at Treebones resort in Big Sur California 2 weeks ago- I have no facebook but would love to send it along to you if you are interested. It looks beautiful against the rough windy wet weather and storming sea.
looking forward to meeting you in person in France

I'm ashamed to admit I missed this Cal but I'm still going to have a go. If you need two yarn packs for the double bed size, will I need three packs for a king size bed?


Can anyone figure out how to do the Colorwash in a baby blanket size? I would like to make it for twin babies. Thanks


Hi Lucy I have followed your web site for years and i love how you make it so easy to understand your patterns i have purchased the sweet pea pack but cannot start to do till i have my plaster cast and bandages off .
i have tried to subscribe to you web site but it comes up as letters and numbers i don'y know another way to subscribe to you

Ahhh I love the pictures people have sent to show their lovely blankets. Thank you for sharing your lovely blankets with us. I know exactly what you mean about loving your bed. I have the cosy stripe blanket on my bed. Reminds me of old fashioned blankets and sheets. It's too easy to have a duvet these days but maybe when I have completed all of your blankets I will treat myself to some crisp cotton sheets!! (and get my other half to launder them all!!!) Love your Tilly cat :)

They are all so lovely!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


I have loved reading your posts and seeing all the gorgeous photos of the various blankets that are being made.
I am currently working on my take of the Hydrangea blanket, doing rows of 4 instead of 2, (I love the colours so much I wanted to see more of them). It's taking a while as I have other projects on the go!

My SP yarn pack is on its way ....the colours are gorgeous and the plan is to start in Summer! Thank you so much for all your hard work!!

Been following the CAL even though I am not doing it. I have enough WIPs in my cupboard to last a few years.
Love the colours and all the different ways people have used them.
Might do something with the SP colours in a couple of years when my other blankets are finished.
Thanks Lucy


I’m already planning to make another Colorwash for a friend and I want to make the Posey. I am so enjoying the colors and so are my friends. They love to see my progress each week. The colors just sing! This CAL is so much fun to be a part of! Thank you Lucy!


So many lovely photos! I've got my yarn packs but waited to see blankets before making my choice on which to make. I made my choice. :)

I'm a bit behind this week but I know it's okay.. this has been a spectacular CAL to be a part of. The colors just sing to me and are like a harbinger of spring. I'm about to pick my "Team Rogue Sample Repeat" and work on it right now as a big snowstorm in closing in on us. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Just wanted to say Lucy how much I am loving this blanket - the colours are divine. I have made all your previous blankets, some now reside in new homes, some are still with me, but this has to be my new favourite! I am making it for my dear sister who is in a dark place right now, so hope it will bring her some happiness and hope. Thank you for your clear and detailed instructions - your attention to detail is much appreciated.


Beautiful, beautiful, wow!ň

My granddaughter's birthday is 2/25. Is there anyway I can get hints about the border so I can have it done by the 25th? I'm thinking you might be doing the same border as the cupcake blanket, only with more colors. Any hints?

Amy B

Thank you, Lucy! I finished the last part early and felt so bereft and empty-handed, I started another Moorland (!)Early this morning (CA time)I enjoyed setting up my next stage before I go to work. A meditative start to the day.

Susan B

Thank you so much for this CAL Lucy, it is the very first one where I've kept up! I'm making the colourwash but bought an extra kit, and can't wait to use it! Thanks to Lucy for adding the photos and all the hookers for their inspiration, you are all so creative!

Mary W

Feels the same as when you have been reading a great book and then it ends - empty. Hope you fill the void, again!


I am so in love with my colourwash wanted to do as was different and everyone who has seen it so far says how pretty it is. The stitch is really relaxing as you say definitely will do another in this stitch. Thankyou soo much am feeling sad its finishing but ho hum next Jan there will be another on my hook he he

Susan Smith
