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

It's so beautiful love your work You inspired me to learn to crochet last year and now I can't stop. Do you have a complete pattern for your BB blanket for a beginner like me. Thank you agin xxxxx

Jodi Fuller

Tasha

Wow i love those colors of that blanket very pretty

Lizzie

What a stunner! Thank you for these gorgeous pictures and the lovely blog overall. I just discovered it yesterday (October 2014), and the photos are good medicine for me just now. I am deeply inspired. As soon as I'm done with the Halloween costumes for the kiddos, I'll be whipping out the old crochet hooks and binging on colorful yarn. Thank you for the inspiration!

Do you have a pattern please? Do you have any other crochet blanket/afghan/samplers/motif patterns? I'm in hospital now 8 weeks and there's no wifi so I can't look up internet other than on phone a small amount. I've been asked to crochet blankets for 22 different babies children and adults and I'm a beginner crocheter so don't know any sites to look up other than ravelry. As I've to provide these blankets for free and my crochet stuff has all been stolen out of hospital including all my crochet books I'm looking for free patterns.
If there's any you cld email me I'd really appreciate any help.
Are any of your patterns available on pdf to download?
I've not had yarn in over 6 months and I only learnt crochet 7 months ago but I'm a fast learner and I pick patterns up quickly. I have done tge shell stitch and original granny squares so am looking something newand challenging.
My crochet books were a luxury but now all my stuff has been stolen including wool I'd just bought I need to try and rebuild my collection so if you know of anyone selling second hand crochet items in the uk let me know please.

I just saw your BB on Pinterest. I recently made a small granny lap throw out of yarn scraps a friend gave me. I have a few questions. You said you used 14 colors. But you said you had 44 balls of yarn. Since that isn't divided evenly by 14, idid you get extras of the colors you used to go around the granny squares? I don't want to sink a lot of money into it and discover that I don't have enough of a particular color to go around the blanket. How did you figure out how much to get of each color? I hope you will answer soon because I would love to make one for my daughter's twin sized bed, maybe for Christmas but if not by then, maybe for her birthday in June. Your blanket is beautiful.

Congratulations! You have a great imagination and taste in choosing colors

Hi! It's literally YEARS after you posted about BB and here I am in July of 2013 just discovering it for the first time. IT'S BEAUTIFUL. I, too, revel in the pleasure you must have felt upon completion. And people who ask "Where'd you get the cool big blanket?" and you nonchalantly replying "Oh, that big beautiful, colorful, warm and clever blanket? I did. I made it. No big whoop." Anyway. I love the internet at moments like this. I hope BB and you are still enjoying each other. Cheers, Clementine

Hello! You inspired me. Thanks, Dina Souza/ BR.

Julie

The selection of red yarns make all the cooler shades of yarn sparkle. Someday, I hope you will write a post about how you choose color combinations.

Fiona Martin

I have just found your blog and love it. Not only the ideas and pics for crochet projects - which are lovely- but the fact that you enjoy your life so much and find joy in so much others would, quite frankly, sneer at. So many young women are not happy and too obsessed with becoming this or that and you show how wonderful it is being a wife and mother and doing that job well. Wonderful .. All the best to you.

Liz

Hi Lucy I have been working my way through some of your beautiful tutorials and now I have started my own blog. I felt it was only right that I let you know I have made a Homage to Attic24 in the crochet page of my blog. If you would like to see it its at http://lizzys-sweet-things.blogspot.co.uk/p/crochet.html
Keep up the great and inspirational work!

rachel

Jackie

I love this blanket!! I love the colors you choose and how you arrange them. Makes me want to start another big project! Thanks for sharing!

Shendel

I started one today. Thank you for sharing your designs, I love all of them. Cheers from Brazil...

Stphanie

I have been cruising (hehe I always laugh when I say that... its my daughters name) your blog for a good half day now on and off as I have just picked up my first crochet hook!! I am liking it already and am really excited about the new prospect of a new craft addiction. Thank you for having a list of tutorials on your blog. I have listed a few (a lot) on my blog to try but I need to get the new language imbedded in my brain first before I leap too far a head of myself. Thanks for listening!!
