Oh how I love to come home and read a new post from you!!! I think your socks are so pretty and coming along fast :) It never feels that fast when I knit socks, but I do love them. I am hoping to go kayaking later today, and enjoy some outdoors as well. Thank you for sharing your "simple life" and encouraging us all to see the beauty in our own lives.

Thanks for this lovely blog post! I'm really enjoying all your Blogtober posts.


Hi Lucy, I decided to give knitted socks a go recently. I tried one popular pattern but made a real hash of it using DPN’s. I found a afterthought heel pattern and switched to circular needles ( Knitpro 40cm 2.75 ) and have now knitted 3 pairs for my daughters. I think I might be hooked.


Lovely as ever !
I did my first pair of socks last year the winwick ones the pattern was easy to follow but took me ages to get used to the circular needle, but once you get the knack its great.
You walkies are so beautiful, love your photos.
Well today its roast and crochet pumpkins yay !


I use magic loop for socks, the best discovery ever, so easy!
Gabriella, check out crafternoon treats blog, she has loads of crochet bags…not trying to take you away from Lucy, but Lucy has posted masses of ‘how to’ recently, she sure deserves a break😂


Oh my goodness! I have caught up!!
Now to do some crocheting. :-)


I keep looking for walks like you have, but all I find are sports grounds. Boring places to walk.
Funny, you found the recommended size circular needle too big. I found it too fiddly. Then I saw a woman making socks on a long length circular needle and I was intrigued. She kindly shared how she used it. There are plenty of youtube videos on it too. I use a 100cm length circular knitting needle for all my in the round knitting now. Still have my double pointed needles.


I’m really enjoying reading your Blogtober Lucy, it’s something I look forward to every morning while having my first cup of tea for the day. I really love all of the pictures you take and share with all of us who read your blog.
I have a question for you in regards to that cute little Granny Josephine bag that you made a while ago,will you be posting a tutorial on how to make it some time in the near future? As I think it would be a lovely project to do.
Looking forward to reading your next post.🙂


This sounded like such a satisfying Saturday. Mine was fairly similar but I was lucky enough to have my regular 'caffeine & crochet catch up with my crochet friends. But over Zoom! It's normally every month in person as many of the crew travel from places all over the western side of Melbourne, but during lockdown we've been enjoying it fortinghtly and even have some newer friends join us from Brisbane and Tasmania. You've reminded me of the sad looking leek in my fridge so there might be a soup in my future today...

Your daily missives are so heart-warming and fill me with such a special, loving joy that I don't want October to end! It is indeed a pleasure to be as a little bird on your shoulder, moving about your day, seeing what you see.

I know what time this writing craft takes, and I am so appreciative of what you are doing. As someone who has only recently discovered the blogosphere, and doesn't subscribe to any of the "social" sites, I guess I'm quite late to the party! As such, I hope you will continue to share your days with us for a long time to come.

I must also thank you (and Wool Warehouse) for making your exquisite Aria Blanket Yarn Kit so easily had. I have mine at the ready (I swear it arrived within days of my order, and all the way to the US Pacific Northwest!) to begin and brighten the first cold, wintry days ahead.

My very best to you.


It is so lovely where you live, I enjoy your pictures so much. I am not a fan of cleaning the house, it has to be done. Oh well. Who cares eh? I had a lovely day, my bonus daughter married, 12 weeks pregnant. Felt great to see her happy. Driving over pitch-black country roads back home.

Looks like you have had a pretty perfect Saturday :). I have finished my day off with someYuletide time and a cuddle from the kitty whilst I drink my final cup of tea. I love your blogs they make me feel restful and relaxed. Living in rural areas certainly is a blessing to be cherished.


Envy your walks and small village living and also the cooler temperature. It is 90 Fahrenheit here today and very humid. I am ready for cooler temperatures and would really enjoy living where I could walk to stores and cafe and just a pleasant woodland walk. I am reading Christine’s blog which is very enjoyable also. My grandchildren are going through the problems that you have with Little Lady. Somehow it all works out. You are doing a great job at mothering. Love and support is what it takes.


You really do live in such a lovely spot, I love how close the countryside is to the town. Lots of beautiful old buildings too. CJ xx

Nothing to warm you as autumn draws in better than leek and potato...I had some last night.
My grateful moment of the day started as a disaster! Having just had a new kitchen fitted (pale oak doors), I came home with 2.5l of quick drying white satinwood, and dropped it. Oh...OH NO! Paint everywhere! Quickly changing out of my best paint streaked trousers, I spied my neighbours in their garden, and called for help. Tim and Lindsay shot round with old towels and other useful items. 'Got a dustpan?' asked Tim, and promptly scooped up the worst of it into my washing up bowl, while I scrubbed my new cupboards with hot soapy water and a washing up brush. 2hrs later, you'd have to look closely to see anything had happened. Tin of paint £36...wonderful neighbours, priceless!


We walked that same route through the woods at the beginning of the week when we were in skipton for a couple of days. First time we've been there. What a beautiful place you live in.

Sounds like a lovely day! The yarn colors in your socks are so cheerful, and I find myself searching for the brand...Thanks for sharing your weekend.
