Was just wondering, each part comes out on Fridays. Why does part 8 come out on Sunday? The 25th February is a Sunday.


Brilliant colourwork Lucy - so uplifting.
As to the pesky half balls of wool - I have tamed them in the past by reinstating the ball band and adding an elastic band, which can be tightened as the ball gets thinner. You should then be able to continue pulling the yarn from the middle.
Hope this helps,

Dear Lucy,
I have followed your blog for over a decade and I think that I have once before posted a comment to you.
I live in France and have encouraged many friends to follow you.
I finally finished your Coast blanket and took some 'arty' pictures of it as you would. My friends have encouraged me to send you a photo which I'd love to do only I am not sure how I could send it.
Also, I am visiting Skipton next week and will be making a pilgrimage to Coopers (sadly not on Friday morning when I would be sure to see you!).

I love your posts, no matter the project, season, pallet or topic. Inspiration by scroll. Thank you.


Wow! I really love all the flowery versions...but...might Blossom and Bluebells be the name of your next blanket?? Cx


Ach, so! Meine Fortschritte habe ich hier festgehalten:


Thanks for showing my photo from last week! Perry and David Peter are beside themselves with excitement!


I really look forward to the Friday CAL posts! They are always so full of colour and incredibly inspiring photos! The variation of patterns using the your colours is always really surprising and exciting, and the way that different colour choices create different moods within the same pattern is quite inspiring and educational! I'm loving the Vintage Flower Hexagons! Roll on next week!!💐

This CAL is really helping me to beat the winter blues! I decided this blanket would be specially for use in my campervan, for those chilly evenings or just snuggling up in bed with a morning cuppa. I've been doing my colourwash stripes through these dark evenings, dreaming of summertime camping adventures! xx


Wow such a feast of gloriously uplifting colour 🏳️‍🌈 I’ve resisted so far because I need to finish some WiPs but the sunshine positivity will definitely start in my house soon! So many lovely versions and starting late gives the advantage of considering all the different possibilities ☺️ thank you!

I love seeing all the different variations…such beautiful work! Since I’m doing the lap blanket, I started a retro daisy blanket from link you shared. Now I’d like to give one of the other flower patterns a try that you’ve shown today. What does one do with so many blankets? 🙄🧶❤️


Gorgeous! I’m not doing this CAL, but I love reading about it, and seeing all the beautiful blankets in all their variety. 😍
