I saw the 'Museum of the Moon' when it was in Lichfield cathedral a few weeks ago. Pretty awesome :-)


Hi Lucy, thank you for your wonderful meanderings through your beautiful countryside. Wondering what stitch/pattern you used for the fireside stripe blanket. I love the way the colours blend and have received my yarn. I am from country Queensland in Australia and it is always a joy to see the ‘cool’ happenings in your part of the world around this time of the year. May you and your family have a joy-filled Christmas.

Your photos always inspire me, especially the cosy ones of your open fire, your lovely blankets, the pretty canal boats and kitty of course. Please don't feel under pressure to blog! I love your designs and one day I am going to give up work and make them all!! Take care of yourself and keep warm :)


Love your pumpkin carving in Mexican Day of the Dead style


I am think I am possibly the only person who doesn't like hand-knitted socks! I find them unbelievably uncomfortable, like cheese graters for the feet. I don't mind knitting them, just not the wearing.
I haven't seen the moon installation but we did have the earth one in our council offices, I found it very disappointing, you could only see Antarctica from where we could stand! There's a gallery all around the area used, but the public weren't allowed on it.

I'd been taking a daily peek to see if there might be another post, then it dawned on me: It's Christmas. Lucy's rightfully engaged in holiday prep.! And then. . here you are, brightening all of our days! It is not lost on me how much time these take, which makes them all the more dear. Just like you!


Another lovely post & mentioning Bolton Abbey, our first port of call after a long flight from Oz, made me want to come over & see family & friends again.
Your socks are lovely & wow, what a great job you did on that pumpkin. Enjoy the lead up to Christmas & stay toasty warm. Our weather is playing very silly with a few hot days, then back to cold, wet & windy....strange. Take care & hugs.

It's so good to have you back!Yorkshire was my home county and I do love to see your photos.

Thank you Lucy for opening your window today. I enjoy a glimpse into your creative mind. Yikes, 15,000 steps a day. I only wish I could do that. But with your beautiful town and countryside, the scenery would make the distance fly by. Also, thank you for your beautiful crochet.


It's hard to believe all those wonderful blog posts after so many years. I really appreciate being able to read them and see a part of the world so unlike where I live. Those canal boats alway grab my attention; your pumpkin remind me of the popular Day of the Dead images here in California; I love your socks and wonderful crochet afghans and mats and have made quite a few of each of them. Thank you again for sharing yourself with us.


How lovely! I love seeing photos of your village, it looks like such a lovely place to be 😍. I’ve been admiring that sock yarn for a very long time now but have struggled to find it. Maybe it’s time to finally get some now! Thank you for another beautiful post Lucy xx

I love seeing your world and what you are up to. I'm on the other side of the world in Queensland Australia. Your village is a delight and so many of the places you visit I would love to see. Thankyou Lucy, for inspiring ing me to crochet, it was your penchant for colour that matched my own and made want to make my own blankets.
Take care of you and yours. Suexx


Wonderful post as always. You really brighten my days. Big hugs. X

🥰 SOO happy to hear from you & that you're muddling along, like most of us. The seasons' changing really do affect me, & sounds like it does you too (SAD, in name & effect!) Love, as always, seeing your doings & happenings - so different to my solitary life. Love your projects, your musings & your modesty. Stay happy & healthy, hugs xxx Kristine, Sydney ❤️


Thank you for opening your window! You are quite right not to reproach yourself for missing a few weeks, you always come back to it. And it’s always lovely to see a new post.It’s lovely to share the changing seasons with you too. I saw the Museum of the Moon in Wells Cathedral in Somerset, amazing. There’s another exhibition called Gaia, with the earth being represented.
Enjoy the frosty mornings!


Hello! I am happy to see you here tonight. I always enjoy visiting your cozy space.


I have come to enjoy autumn as well, after many years of not really liking it. Winter as well, which I love now. Fantastic job on that pumpkin, it's excellent. I shall look forward to seeing some seaside pictures if you decide to share them, I do love a few coastal shots. Have a lovely weekend Lucy. CJ xx


It’s amazing to think Little B is not so little anymore, I remember him when he was in your tum! Saw an amazing tutorial for crochet socks on YouTube the other day - they fold together! Glad your feet are toasty and the boots are back out. Lovely photos of autumn, I miss it too - I didn’t get out enough in the lovely weather, but we did get a lot of rain in Leeds mind you!
