I have literally just finished the last border round of the beautiful Summer Harmony blanket (so enjoyed this one) and it feels very appropriate to turn to the lovely wintery-feel yuletide next! Never done a square blanket before like this one, excited to watch it grow over the next few months! Have bought one for a friend too, I think she is going to do the stripes version! Thank you Lucy!

Lucy! I just love your pattern and colors together! But I’m not a big granny square lover. So…I’m going to try and use your Yuletide crochet pattern in the stripes. It just compliments the theme andI love the mini hearts it makes. I’ll let you know how I do. I’m feeling brave and confident. Lynn


Your blanket looks lovely

Hello Lucy, I just love your blog and am getting ready to start the Yuletide blanket! I ordered my yarn on day one and am so glad they delivered it pretty fast. Because I live in Honolulu we see no snow and is always warm. So I am very happy you created this blanket to give me my wonderful feelings for the Yultide. Thank you so much Lucy!

Belle journée de Solstice d'automne pour demain, bises


I'm so happy I placed my order day one! I can hardly wait for it's arrival. I showed my husband the blanket, and he's excited for me to bring it to life in our house. Thanks for being such a wonderful resource as well as a friend. Even though you don't actually know me. I feel like I know you and I think you're pretty awesome!

Bravo pour ta nouvelle création, généralement des couleurs de printemps, d'été mais cette dernière couverture est festive avec des odeurs de sapin, d'oranges......d'hiver d'où l'envie de la réaliser et de se lover dedans pour se réchauffer. Bises


A beautiful Yuletide blanket with colours of the season. I love it. My crochet hook has been idle for a while, maybe it's time to pick it up again. Thank you for your inspiration xx


Thank you very much Lucy for a wonderful colourful blanket in the round. I can't wait to get started on this latest creation. I am one of those crocheters who prefer to work in the round rather than in rows!! Your photo tutorials are always helpful and I appreciate all your time and effort making everything so straight forward.
I always look forward to reading your blog and seeing your photographs. I am a lover of Yorkshire, the coast and the south west of our beautiful country. I am grateful, too, for your honesty in sharing your daily experiences with us. Your positivity and creativity, even when times are tough, shine through.
Thank you so much. You are an inspiration. Take care. Jx

Hi Lucy, I absolutely love the stripie pattern. The more I look at it the more I want to start it but I'm afraid its the UFO Christmas bits first. I shall look forward to begining it in the new year.
Hope you are enjoying the nice bit of sunshine we are having at the moment, I'm just south of Leeds.


Dear Lucy, thank you for the valuable content you offer on your site and for your courage in sharing your recent experiences with the dreaded 'M'. It is horrendous in the devastating effects it brings and there is a wide variety for all of us, though many are common. As people share we are informed but also feel supported - we cope better, even though we can't change it. I have resorted to herbal remedies, supplements, diet change, melatonin etc. but even though they bring relief, it is an effort coping and some things are never the same, it is a grieving process too, over the loss of strength and function! I value your positivity and joy in artistic and natural things, I enjoy them too and your posts are lifting - but just so your realistic sharing too. Glad you are feeling more your own happy and positive self. Always enjoy your posts and photographs - what a lot of work. Only just caught up with the last few months - we have had a hectic year in education, as a teacher I have never worked so hard - but hopefully we are nearing the light at the end of the tunnel!


My favourite colour combination so far!! really lovely, thank you for sharing this. And hats off to Wool Warehouse who got my wool delivered within 24 hours!


Congratulations on such an amazing pattern and colourway! I love how you have taken the time to provide sequence charts etc for different styles of Yuletide blankets. That's what is so wonderful about your blankets. Each one is about the stitch, but mostly about the unique colourway you create and also the story of those colours. Imagine a moorland blanket colourway in a Yuletide square or vice versa! You've got such an amazing eye and brain for designing these beautiful pieces that its no wonder you have such a massive following! Xox


I'm not surprised the blanket has done so well, it's lovely and I think everyone is looking for something warm and comforting and homey for the winter. Hope you have a good weekend. CJ xx


Thank you so much Lucy, can’t wait to start this lovely blanket. Thank you for sharing your creative mind and wonderful world of colour. Never has it been more needed!
All best wishes to you for a happy healthy and colourful autumn xx
