Hello Lucy, thank you for your beautiful blog. I really enjoy reading about you, J and the Little People and your daily life. I was wondering if there was a link or any information about those lovely mittens you knitted. I clicked on Knitting and scrolled through but couldn’t see them. I’m currently knitting my first pair of Winwick mum’s socks based on your recommendation and am enjoying it. I’ve also crocheted your Granny Stripe Blanket and loved that, and have made a Cowl Neck Poncho similar to yours that I remember reading about ages ago. ( I found a Simone Francis pattern that was similar). Anyway, I would like to knit some mittens at some stage and I liked the look of yours. But no bother re pattern really, I know you put so much time into blog and and don’t want to create any unnecessary follow up, but if there’s a quick & easy link that would be wonderful. Thank you again for your blog, I cannot even tell you how much I enjoy it & how much comfort it brings me. Xxxxxxxxxxx


Your walks and woods are breathtaking! Thanks for sharing your photos of such beautiful surroundings. It's provides a bit of an escape for me as well.


Came to know about you in a group today. Just visited your fb page ...

Amazingly beautiful..
Feel to make a ripple..
Would love to try your ripple know how..
Thank you so much

Ah Lucy! I can just close my eyes and see, or smell whatever you blog about! It's so amazing how you capture the essence when you blog and photograph! Thank you so much for this gift of blogtober! It is so appreciated.
Stay safe & joyful holidays and wintertide!


The colours of Granny are so joyful and serene at the same time. I recently made a granny square vest which I think I wanted to be colourful and serene, but turned out to be super kaleidoscopic! I'm now trying to figure out how I'm going to wear it as I don't quite have the wardrobe to match!
But you know, there's nothing quite like a granny square. I just wish I had your eye for colour!

I'm glad Granny J 'held it together'...made me chuckle. Needing a bit of yarn therapy myself at the moment as the reality has bitten of another winter nearly upon us, and this year with all the ongoing difficulties of the pandemic alongside. I've really enjoyed the blog this month xx


Love the post and hearing about Granny Josephine. Look forward to seeing her finished.

Love a ta-dah! moment, can't wait😀


She’s looking great. The left over squares could be lined with some extra fabric and sewn into the lining as a patch pocket.
I love a day when you don’t have stuff to do. Today is one for me. It’s stir fry for dinner so all I need to do is eat and crochet. Perfect for a rainy day.


Love your posts! Almost wish I wasn’t vegetarian!!! 💕

Can you tell me the name of your slow cooker book please. recipes sound amazing xx


Lovely post as always Lucy, thank you. We often holiday in your area ( not this year sadly) and stay in our little caravan, not too far away from the farm shop.
We are so looking forward to returning next year. Your words and photos are almost as good as a visit.


Your granny bag is going to be fabulous Lucy. Lucky you had written pattern for your half squares my brain would fizzle lol
Lovely walk pictures so beautiful there and will have a trip again one year again.


You have totally made my month. I really don't want Blogtober to end. Thank you so very much for bringing your wonderful countryside/town/home into our lives each day this month.

I rather like the slightly shorter Granny bag, Lucy. And you know any leftover granny squares from the taller version don't have to go to waste. Perhaps a small pocket for notions?

I love seeing your photos of the countryside and your village.


Looking forward to your ta-dah Granny Josephine moment. She looks lovely already.


The blanket mistyping made me laugh, my fingers do the same things sometimes, racing ahead of me and thinking they know what I'm about to say. Well done on tackling the bag, it is going to be lovely. CJ xx

Granny is looking grand!

Jo Hyde

have enjoyed your daily blog so much, fear I will get withdrawal symptoms when you stop! however you have a life and its not to prop us all up during this dreary covid time but thank you anyway!!


I've so enjoyed reading these posts, though I've not been commenting as you've so many readers & a little old lady here in Oz just doesn't count. The little snippets of your life & the amazing Yorkshire scenery are something to look forward to when I open my laptop. Thank you so much. Take care, stay safe & huggles from down under.
