We've all been practising our social distancing and are hunkering down for the time being. Unfortunately, the office will be closed during the next two weeks while we self-isolate. While we are still happy to take your orders, they will not be filled until we are back in person
In the meantime, we will be offering Lucy's Video Downloads at a reduced price! The first title is Lucy's Brand New Knitter, which will be sold for $1CAD for the duration!
This title will take you step by step through the process of learning to knit, with an emphasis on building a solid base of knowledge and understanding, so that you will feel in control and ready to experiment.
Check back often, as more of the Learn With Lucy Video Download titles get reduced to half-price,
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!
Play it smart: do not use the same password for different sites, and always monitor your credit card statements.
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!

To enjoy the membership extras: Register, enjoy! Your NOTEBOOK is your personal place on our site, where all your patterns, videos and eBooks are always on tap, always in the latest version.
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."
