Bought the yarn from Wool Warehouse to do this project whilst waiting for an operation. Now back home and its the perfect thing for me to do whilst recuperating. Absolutely love your patterns Lucy. I am making the lap blanket size and will donate the finished article to our local hospital. They have put a shout out for knitted or crocheted lap blankets that can be machine washed. Want to make the coastal one next.

Dear Lucy,
I have always enjoyed your crochet creations and color celebrations on your blog, but I think you have truly outdone yourself with this Dahlia colour collection and the spike stitch pattern that captures the spirit of these flowers. This is the first CAL I have ever wanted to participate in and it required a Herculean effort to not order my own Dahlia pack immediately. (Truly the only thing that stopped me is the three bundles of yarn for the three afghans I dreamed in the heady days of shopping the Christmas sales!) Thank you so much for sharing everyone else's lovely adventures with your beautiful palette. Once I finish my three afghans, I intend to be one of the "late bloomers" in this pattern. --Jennifer K.

Really enjoying this CAL - this is my first project but won’t be my last - thank you Lucy


Your color pairings make me so happy! I love love love looking at what you come up with!


I'm not a knitter nor a crocheter(?) but I wanted to know where You found the neat large-ring handled basket tote(?) in the very last picture in this article. I like Dahlias and have some in my flowerbed - They are one of my fav flowers and I always consider getting more!! :) b


You continue to come up with new, fresh, exciting color combinations. Love your work and I'm enjoying my dahlia blanket.

Hello my dear friend Lucy!! I enjoyed your blog today and was so pleased and surprised to see you added my iPhone wallpaper photo.. I had so much fun doing that. And this Dahlia blanket is making my winter so happy and bright! You simply are a crochet rock star and I'm so glad I found you. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Hi Lucy, I am so enjoying working on my Dahlia blanket! I knew I would never "keep up" but that doesn't matter at all. I'm just finishing Part One and I am so excited for the pale yellows :). And the spike stitch is wonderful - I love it. Thanks for sharing all the gorgeous blankets people are making and, as always, thank you for all your work and beautiful photos.


As I don’t live in the UK I regret that I cannot order and probably use the beautiful seed catalog. Each week is a great delight to brighten the Winter days. The colors make me happy. An afterthought last week we had you sweet and sour vegetables with sausage. It is my go to recipe when I am rushed and don;t know what to cook. Thanks for the blanket and also the recipe.

You know Deirdre there's one in every crowd - group. I've truly enjoyed the beauty of this CAL. Each CAL gets better and better , it's obvious that you put a lot of thought , time and love into them. Amazingly Beautiful !!!!


I really love seeing everyone's interpretations, it must be such a thrill for you to see as well. I adore the texture of crochet as well, it's such a tactile thing. Dahlias are wonderful aren't they, I always dream about growing a lot more of them. Time to get out that catalogue... CJ xx

Thank you for sharing other’s interpretation of your designs. Could you please explain to Angela that this is perfectly acceptable and not a breach of copyright. She has caused great upset and offence in Friends of Attic 24.


So enjoying the cal Lucy, the colours are gorgeous and as you say bringing much brightness in these gloomy days and relaxing crochet to wind down. Thank you for all the work you put into this for us to enjoy. Love Jane x
