Lucy's Sunburst DK Blanket pattern is half-price this week.
You'll cast-on from the centre, then might want to keep knitting forever!
This very soothing doubleknit project has none of the normal hurry-up-to-finish pressure. It's just something lovely to knit on, whenever you need it.
This pattern may be worked full size for blanket or partway only for a chairpad or placemat.
My accompanying eight-part Tutorial, in which all of the techniques are demonstrated in detail, is half-price this week, as well!
The Sunburst DK Blanket is half-price ($3.75)
until November 23,
Happy DK Stitches!
Lucy added several new items to the website last month!
Her beautiful centre-out double-knit Pyramid Blanket was inspired by the lovely sets of gradient dyed Casbah yarns created by Handmaiden in Halifax. The workshop-in-a-pattern features a full written pattern with photos, Stitch-Maps charts, diagrams and fourteen video links.
Lucy also added an altogether different type of pattern to the website in June: her original rug designs are available for purchase at the website now! Hand-drawn on primitive linen with sewn raw edges, these patterns will keep the creative juices flowing!
And finally, we have added another pattern designed by our creative friend Julia Watt! The Snaking Cables Sweater is a seam-free, top-down sweater featuring an intricate, all-over cable pattern with integrated bust and hip darts to flatter the fuller figure.
Check them out: your summer project awaits!
Our old mailing list software has become dated and unmaintainable, and we have decided to move over to MailChimp. In order to make this happen, we ask that you please sign up afresh if you would like to continue receiving Lucy's Spun Yarn newsletter. Just send us an email at email@example.com and we'll add you to the new mailing list, we do not want to lose you!
Bundles are collections of pdf patterns, patterns plus tutorials or eBooks and related patterns which we will be offering at a reduced price. Some will be permanent, but watch for our Limited Time Offers, as well. This section is always growing, so please check back often!
We've created a special Bundle for those knitters with some extra yarn in their stash and a need to "give back"!
These straightforward patterns are infinitely suitable. Whether you're considering a homeless shelter, a care facility or a family in need, donating one or more projects made from these patterns will be perfect!
Our only request is a photo of your finished project in our Ravelry Neatby Knitters Group. Let's see how many socks, scarves and hats we can make for those less fortunate!

If you use a different password for each site you log in to, should your email or lucyneatby.com password get hacked, your bank account will not also be hacked. Thieves are used to people being lazy and re-using their passwords!

The Sea Lettuce Scarf is still our most popular pattern, ever. Have you tried it yet? It's a lot of fun to knit, and not difficult. We have seen it made in almost every kind of yarn, and it always looks gorgeous and often incredibly dramatic. Knit in silk, it has a life of its own!
For some high-tech fun, check out the latest addition to the Notebook tabs: QR Codes. Generate a knitting pattern for a QR Code that can be read by a smartphone. Deliver a link or a personal message. (Be warned, the longer the message, the more complex the chart.) How about "I love you" on a scarf? Or "I am a geek!" on an iPad case?
"Lucy's designs are so tempting -- knit, learn, have fun, knit some more, learn some more,
admire the design, learn, knit, admire the colours you've chosen ...
until you have something amazing that's a Lucy-and-you creation."
