About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

Hi there Lucy,
Your blanket is gorgeous!!!
Very inspiring in fact.
As I said once before the colours you choose are so pretty.
You look very comfy in your new blanket...or is it old now...tee hee...with all the mileage it has on it? LOL

Fantastic! What a work of art to snuggle under. And your young man has obviously got an artistic eye because that is a great portrait of his Mum.

Jennifer

Love the blanket. Beautiful photo of you, just lovely. It is good to see the face that chatters to us in such a friendly relaxed way. I have just finished my ripple. It is a lovely feeling isn't it To walk past a room and see it, go and stare, touch it and that satisfies till next time.

Patricia

Hello again. Just re the ripple again. What ply is the wool you used and what size crochet hook did you use?

Gill

I love your ripple blanket Lucy, just stunning, what a great choice of colours. I've finally come close to finishing my Granny square blanket this week and am tempted to start a ripple blanket next now!BTW I thought the photo was of a daughter you hadn't mentioned yet!! Lovely to see the face behind the blog.

Chris

The ripple turned out so lovely! And you're right- a family heirloom with all those wonderful memories hooked into it (and those to come) make it priceless!

Alva

Alice

Sorry this is a bit late but that ripple blanket just looks amazing!! Well done!! And you look fantastic too - I think that length of hair really suits you!

What a gorgeous blanket and what a pretty lady!!

Kali

Oh Luce, it's gorgeous..to die for..scrumptious..delectable!
As you can tell I love it!

Gem

Wow, this looks amazing! I really want to make a ripple now but think I'd better finish the crochet projects I already have on the go (3 and counting....) before starting any more! The picture of you is great too - you look very relaxed :)

Jennifer

OMG your blanke is beautiful! And you are too! You are darling! I am so jealous of that blanket. I really want to start but no NOTHING about crochet. You are so inspiring. As I've told you before you have one of the BEST blogs. I want to come over for tea!!! Jennifer

Sian Kneller

Gosh, you look so young! How can you be married with kiddie winkles and look so fab!?

Rebecca

My gosh, this is just gorgeous, the colours work together beautifully. I am desperately trying to master crochet at the moment and in need of a ripple blanket. I love your version.

Meredith

I just found your blog recently through Flickr and I just love your crochet! It's so pretty and the colors you choose are so lovely. This blanket is great inspiration. I'm currently finishing up a granny blanket for my hubby (3 years in the making!) and then I think I'm going to give the ripple a go perhaps. Thanks for your inspiration!

Woow Lucy You look the real young English Rose here ... love your crochet blanket ... OOroo ... Bethel

Annabel Burton

Stunning blanket and the colours are just amazing - I love to crochet too and there is nothing more satisfying that snuggling up with a colourful blanket when it's dreary outside. Your stuff is the best I have seen x

Dee

Hi Lucy...what a beautiful piece of loveliness you have crocheted. Just love it.
Can you tell me what size crochet hook you used for this project? I follow your blog and your talent...keep up the good work...you are an inspiration.
Blessings,
Dee

Sarita

Help! I'm trying to follow your ripple pattern but I'm having trouble with the foundation chain. You say to use multiples of 14 plus 3 for turning. The size I want comes up to 210 (14 x 16) plus 3 for turning = 213 total starting chains...right? But...when I look at the stats for your ripple blanket, you say you started with 219 chains? What am I missing? I greatly appreciate your time and assistance...:) And, although I've never commented before, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your blog. I come back multiple times a day because I just can't get enough...:)
Hugs, Sarita in Oregon (a fellow Libra too!)

Hi Lucy,
Your blog is great! Britt and you gave me back the zest of creating with crochet or craft in general. And baking? Oh my God! How very nice!!!!!!!
Thanks a lot for your love and everything else.

Dear Lucy,
I truly admire your work in general and this ripple afghan in particular ever since I bumped into your blog via flickr some 1.5 years ago. It gives me so much joy and inspiration seeing your beautiful crafts, flowers, pastries etc. I totally fell in love with this blanket, desperately wanting to make one myself and I've been gazing my eyes out for hours and hours trying to figure out what colours exactly you used. I hope I am not too demanding asking you to share this info with me. You said it is mainly Rowan Cashsoft DK and two Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK yarns. I think I have identified most of the colours but I'm not quite sure about some of them. Did you use 3 balls per colour? I would really really appreciate your help here. Since there is not one single shop selling these Rowan and Debbie Bliss yarns where I live, I would be really thankful for your advice before I order them online. If you really don't mind and if you could find the time, please let me know. (I could send you the yarn list I made via email so it would be less work for you, but I couldn’t find an email-address on your blog). You can reach me at flowersandyarns@yahoo.de. Thank you so much in advance and I hope to hear from you!! K xxx

This blanket is so wonderful! <3 I spent the last three hours rummaging through your foto stream at flickr and I'm absolutely delighted by your bright, colourful, gorgeous home. Really great, one can literally see the joy you have in crocheting and baking and making everything so comfortable.
