Thank you, finaly a pattern I get :) . I suck at scarfs and amigurumi but I made two of these already!

Hi! I just finished one of these little beauties, and as I were slip stitching it together it occurred to me that it would make an absolutely adorable little coin purse! If you just made the two circles and sew them together halfway. I don't know how to make it "closeable" though, any ideas? =)

Hi Lucy, I just found your website and I'm so happy about this great blog of yours! I'm new to crochet and your blog looks like just the thing to get me going with some exciting patterns. I've got some leftover Christmas coloured (variegated) yarn and was wanting to try ornaments with it. This and the star will be perfect!

Hey A-Two-Four,

Scribe here (aka TH, aka Queen of Whatever's BFF). I wanted to drop you a note to say helloo from across the pond. Your ornaments are dee-light-full and I'm surely going to make some and take all the credit... not really... but... ahem. I love your work, your colors... and your tutorials. I hope you have a loverly day, and a Merry Christmas from my yarn to yours.

Hello Lovely Lucy!
Yay, I am making a set of these for my Mum for christmas in red and natural coloured wool and I LOVE them!
thank you so much for sharing your lovely pattern, if you have time, which I'm sure you actually don't (!!!) I'm popping them on my blog.... also, I used your granny stripe pattern mixed in with my granny circle pattern to create an awesome granny tea cozy which I've been meaning to tell you about! So thank you for that inspiration too!
You have brightened so many people's lives Lucy including mine and I thank you so much for sharing your love and generosity and general you-ness around the world!
Wishing you a very merry festive season and lots and lots of love, from Alice and Raymond XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Ok...you're going to be responsible for making me go home "sick" from work right now...cough,cough...and gee, maybe a quick stop at the yarn store will help this "cough" I seem to have developed...

Denise Jenkins

You should totally bring out a book! it would be the yummiest scrummiest book ever!xxx love your blog!

Paula Neves

Hi Lucy, This is Paula from Portugal. I haven't crocheted in years but as soon as I found your blog I felt so inspired that I am now making my first afghan.
These decorations are really great. I'm planning on buying some yarn and start to make some right away.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Natasha Price

Thanks again for inspiring me. I've always been a knitter, but after gazing at your blog for several months, I was driven to learn to crochet. Your tutorials are thorough and easy to understand. I can't wait to churn out these ornaments!

Kari Lambrechts

This decoration is so great. Thank you so much for sharing. You continue to amaze me with your wonderful blog. I will be making some of these great decorations soon!

Susanne Tyree

Merry Christmas! Donation was just sent :)
Have 4 baubles in the works. Stayed up all night with my scraps of yarn (no cotton handy). The possibilities are endless on embellishing these. I have a lady on Ebay who lives in UK and I buy my baby yarn from her. It makes beautiful baby shawls. Her mum use to own a yarn shop. I think you need to open a little shop, what fun, huh?

Sherrie

You are brilliant! Thank you so much for posting these tutorials. My tree ornaments this year are mostly all homemade of yarn, ribbon, beads, and felt. I will definitely be adding a few of these as well. I love your cheerful, vibrant colors. :-) Thanks again and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! (p.s. I have to work in wool or acrylic as I have little patience for cotton - it always seems to stick on my hook - leading to much frustration and choice words!).

Susan

I am just blown away by everything you do. I look forward to every idea you have. The colors you use,your design work, your optimism, - I could gush on and on - everything is so inspiring and makes me happy. Your precise instructions and photographs have helped me to understand crochet so much better. You are a natural, perfect teacher. Thank you for all of your time and hard work. I will be making stars and baubles for the whole family!

Susanne Tyree

Thank you Lucy!! All along have thought to myself that you should sell your patterns. I will donate just as soon as I can figure out US dollars to your currency....

Wendy

Beautiful work, Lucy. Thank you so much. I have knitted for years, but I first learned to crochet. I sort of put it aside and haven't done it in a long time. Your gorgeous pictures and tutorials make me want to pick it up again.
