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

How generous you are - I have been reading your blog for a while and been loving the colourfulness of the hexagons. I did look at the tutorials you mentioned previously but couldn't really follow them. Yours is very clear and the photos really help. The bright and cheerful colours really help to brighten up things with the dull damp weather we are having. Your eye for colour is obvious. I have recently discovered clover crochet hooks when I began a ripple blanket and think they are much more comfortable to use than conventional metal. Not sure if you've tried them. Anyway I have a stash of Rowan DK cotton that I have been wondering what to do with. Now I know. Thanks again for your bright and inspiring blog!!!


As always, fab photo's Lucy. Yes, I've been seduced by all the crochet blankets. I could resist no longer, and started a granny square one this week! I'm hoping to post about it this week. Thanks for the tutorial. Keep hooking. Fi x

Good grief! I feel quite drunk after all that and need a cup of tea and a sit down! That flickr site is just scrummy but I like your pics best! Those colours are amazing! t.x


Thanks for the tutorial. I must give this a go.


Thank you so much for your generosity, Lucy! I've been admiring your blog for a few months already but never felt quite confident enough to leave a comment. But as you remain to brighten up my days with your lovely coloured crochets, tempting recipes, cordially "every day stories" and so many other things I think it's about time to say "Thank you so much" at last.


Your hexagons are just gorgeous...I wish I knew what all that meant though! I love crochet but just buy other peoples..I really must learn one of these days; it looks so satisfying.
I agree with you completely about lentils by the way! They're very underrated...I'll defintely add your bake to my lentil recipes


Thanks so much for sharing this with us. I'm going to give it a go this afternoon. I'll be back to let you know how I get on!! I love your blog & get quite excited everytime I see a new post...thanks for cheering as all up :) x

These are beautiful. I love the colours. You are so talented.


Obrigada Lucy!!
Você me encoraja a fazer coisas lindas de crochê.
Visito seu blog todos os dias e o tenho em meus favoritos.


Lucy, thank you for this wonderfully detailed explanation and the great photos! it comes at a perfect time. i've been busily making my circles (just slightly different than yours, i made up my own version by experimenting) and am about ready to start the hexing/joining. you & Alex (moonstitches) are so generous to guide us through.


I opened your post this morning and was greeted with this magical carousel of beautiful colored hexagons. They're beautiful, Lucy. You make it look so easy.

Thank you for writing that all out. When I want to learn how to do one I'll know where to come (it's on my To Do List but, y'know....).


Lucy - The hexagons are beautiful and colorful. Thank you so much for sharing. I can't wait to get started.


I love these, I'll be linking to this!


Righto, in other words, gulp! Don't know if I'm up to this just yet but I rattled off another jam pot cover last night - Ian still doesn't get them! Thanks so much for the lesson in hexagons, blogland is going to go heaxagon mad!

Thank you! I'm new to crochet, but I think after reading all of your info and the links you've provided, I can do it :)


Hey Lucy, I've made a hexagan...take a look at my blog & give me any tips...thanks x


I am definitely inspired by these and, in fact, by all of your projects!! Thanks.
