Have you ever thought about teaching us how to knit socks. I do knit but haven’t been very successful making socks. You are such a great teacher, I know you could teach us all how to master them. Thank you

I am glad someone had a lovely, controlled summer. In north Texas we had 100+ degrees F. most of the summer. It has been miserable. Many days 110 so too hot to go walking or anything else. I enjoy your blog very much. I have Scottish ancestors and to see Northern England is very interesting. Take care. Linda


Such a beautiful place where you live! I live in Texas, USA where nothing is ever that amazing emerald green. The heat was really extreme this past summer and lives on even now. I just want to sink into those luscious green pictures and stay a while. Thank you for sharing your beautiful pictures!


Such a cosy and relaxing post to read, I could feel your happiness.

Lovely to hear you enjoyed visiting the Isle of Wight. I grew up there (in Ryde by that very beach!) and visit a few times a year. Thanks for sharing :)

Winwick Mum

Lovely post, it was great to see your photos! That sock yarn is really nice too, I do like those stripes! :) xx


What a beautiful post, thank you so much for it! I love to virtually travel through your blog posts, since I love crochet, gardens, the coast... even your day-to-day life looks very inspiring for me!
Wishing you a cozy, nice autumn.

I'm glad you enjoyed the Isle of Wight. I grew up there and love going back home. We last went in May but it already seems so long ago! Looking forward to your new blanket.

Ali Farthing

Greetings from the Isle of Wight ! So glad you made it over and the sun shone for you , your coastal blanket has adorned many a beach over here 😊 hopefully you’ll visit us again some day x


Thanks again for your beautiful pictures and lovely post. I would love to walk where you live. It’s all asphalt and concrete with highways everywhere. Hardly anyone walks, it’s not safe with all the cars and no paths. But I love your posts, keep them coming.


Which sock yarn is that please? Great blog, thanks for sharing.x


The Isle of Wight looks gorgeous. And that's a very southern Australian looking beach. It reminds me of the beaches around here at Sorrento! It's currently 12.40am here as I watch the live broadcast of the Queens funeral. Such a magnificent spectacle for an amazing lady! How many different types of guards are there with all of the different helmets? But I digress. Loving the summer photos. Warm weather is starting to appear here now. Thanks for your post!

Charlotte Hodge Thomas

Aw, Luce! Lovely to read this and your take on visiting me on the Isle of Wight... It was SO lovely spending long overdue time with you. Already looking forward to the next time XXX


So nice to visit your country through your eyes. I always have to look up the places you name on the map and put it in perspective relative to the whole country. It's quite a delightful geography lesson. Here, the summer hasn't been quite so pleasant -- with its blazing hot temperatures -- so I haven't crocheted in over two months. I am very much looking foward to the cooler weather of autumn so that I can finish the two blankets already in progress, and start on the ones still in my head. Thank you for sharing your adventures. I do so enjoy hearing about them.


Hi Lucy i have been trying for a long time to subscribe to your web page for newsletters but no luck hope you can help me out with the problem.


Lucy. What needles are you knitting your socks with? I use double ended ones but like the idea of working with a circular needle.


How lovely…..a Lucy post with the Isle of Wight in it. We lived there for 14 years and I miss it so much! We lived at Seaview and it looks from the photos like you walked round that way to end up in Ryde. Priory Bay was my favourite beach and we lived 5 minutes walk away from it.
Were you there for the Fort Walk?


Hey Lucy. I was just wondering what blanket pattern is on the couch/chair where your cat is sitting??


I won't be telling my Mother that you've had a Mr.Whippy🍦 - she'd be ever so jealous! I love the colour of those socks!🧦 All mine are black, which I must say is a little boring. It's strangely cold down here, it's not usually at this time, but then I s'pose it's been a strange year all round. Take care.

As usual, it is a treat indeed to discover something new from you, Lucy. My crochet friend in New Zealand had sent me a photo of your Fireside blanket 3 days ago, and I couldn't figure out how it was she had such an inside scoop. Glad to be "in the loop" now, too! Welcome home, happiness to you and your family.


Hi Lucy, I’m so glad you’ve had a lovely summer and really happy to see your post again. The Isle of Wight is somewhere I’d love to visit and hope to do so one day soon, so really enjoyed your gorgeous photos (as always). Can’t wait for the wonderfully named ‘Fireside’ blanket, am imagining cosy crackling log fires already and really looking forward to getting back to crocheting again, especially with those stunning colours. Hope your health is more on an even keel now, take care, love and hugs to you. Becki xxx ☺️🥰


What a lovely post and glad to see it pop up as so many of my blogpals have been absent of late. Loving all those beautiful photos of places you've been & a trip to the Isle of Wight tops it all. Glad you enjoyed & I look forward to seeing the new blanket. I've recently been given my late birthday/mothers day present from DD & it is one of your lovely wool packs, so will be enjoying some crochet times soon. Thanks for sharing your late summer snaps, take care & hugs from down under.
