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

Your blankets are beautiful. What a clever girl you are. Enjoying your blog just so much!!!


You, Lucy, are a happy hooker! (teeheehee)

I love love love the granny square blanket. I'd like to learn how to crochet and make it but it looks intimidating. What's a good first project? I really want a blankey.


Carrot cake duly made last night; gorgeous! Thank you so much for a terrific recipe; I always use wholemeal flour, so I added extra milk and it came out beautifully. Actually, we had an attic 24 feast yesterday; sweet potato fish cakes for dinner and carrot cake for late afters.


your blanket is gorgeous... that alone would make me so happy .. to make something that beautiful.
i have carrots awaiting transformation a la attic24... just need a pocket of time to get going...
happy monday xx

My Auntie Pat use to make the zig zag blankets and when I see one I remember her and holidays as a child in Curridge near Newbury.
I really must sit down and try crocheting one myself.
Your hexagons are fab, what a wonderful mixture of colours.
Keep going coz the finished article will be amazing.
Cheers Alex


ok enough ! if you don't stop showing me gorgeous crochetty blankets I'm going to turn up on the attics doorstep and not leave until you show me how to crochet!!!!!!!


Hi there again
I love all your blankets, and your blog and your CHEERFULNESS!!! Could you put a link in the sidebar, or somewhere, with the details of what yarns and hooks you have used for your various blankets. I know you have put it in the blog somewhere, but I can't find it....
Thanks to you for your happiness!
Love Amanda


PS Is there any way of making half hexagons to straighten out the edges of the blanket or do they have to remain castellated at the top and bottom?


Lovely blankets Lucy. The granny squares do it for me though every time!


your crochet always looks so neat and perfect, and such beautiful colours, I am just learning to crochet myself, what size hook do you use to make those hexagons? and what type of wool, could you tell me please, your blankets are so pretty Lucy.


All those colors look amazing together! I think the granny squares are too difficult to crochet, at least for me, because it takes major concentration. It's funny you mentioned your thrift store jumper. (sweater) I, too, have a stripy colorful one I bought at a thrift store 2 years ago and I wear it constantly. It's so cold this morning that I have it on right now with my PJ's.


Well I don't have stripey sleeves to make me smile today but your post had definitely made me smile. Actually your posts always make me smile because they're always so lovely and chattery, like having a good gossip with a friend. The hexagon blanket is looking fab! How many times am I going to wish to myself that I could crochet?! It's going to look great when it's finished. Enjoy the rest of your fidgitty, wooly, stripey, happy day!


Seu blog é muito lindo!!
Você tem esquema dessas mantas coloridas? Elas são maravilhosas!!


Love your hexagons! There's nothing like a colourful blanket... I'm quite a fan of hexagons myself. Found a pattern for them here once: http://sunshinescreations.vintagethreads.com/2007/08/j-is-for.html


great photos! in cafe tomorrow if you get chance to pop in for a capo!

Gorgeous. I wish I had talent like that.


Love those beautiful and cozy looking works of art.

Oh those colours! 4 pictures up would make the most wonderful screen saver! it would make me smile every time I peeked it! Oh the lure of a new project! So tempting! t.xx


As always, I love your colours. I was so happy when I noticed you used the word 'jumper'. In Australia we say 'jumper' as well.
Yours is the only blog that I have seen that word used. Most say 'sweater'
an American term. So anyway yaaaaay for 'jumper'. I love it.


What Fantastic blankets you make. I love your jumper too. I love reading your posts, your sound like my cup of tea.

Hello again,
I truly love you use of color. It really brings light into ones spirit. When I finish with my afghan, I want to try and use the colors you use. Mine are so plain and bland. Could you, as someone earlier suggested if you could mention the yarns and colors for your projects?


love love love your crocheted afghans puts me to shame I shoud be making my own too.


I'm in love with all those colours, beautiful beautiful hexagons, I can see why you're addicted!

I remember you were wearing that gorgeous jumper when you came to visit................ and I remember thinking how beautiful it was............... and how expensive it looked!
The blanket is going to be fantastic................ it already looks lovely..............
