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

Have a lovely weekend,

Wow - they're great. I so wish I could crochet! :0(

Argh! Me wantie, TOO! But I haven't any nice soft wool, so I guess that's an excuse to go buy some. And then I will have to use it for another project, too. hee!


Oh and they're great!!!! they do seem easy peasy!!!

And that coat of yours... I still dream of it!!!!!!!!

Take care of yourself and the little one!!!

You have such talent! I'd seen them in the Joules magazine as well and had an attack of the Wanties, as you so charmingly put it. At this rate, I may even have to learn to crochet myself!


They are so so pretty - love the colours! Well done :)


Oh my gosh! Those are gorgeous!! You continue to amaze me!
Darn, I wish I could crochet!!
Thanks so much for sharing...I LOVE them!


Things can be that simple!
And brilliant!


Oh, I wantie now too :) Love how yours turned out. Must dig through my yarn now...


I had been thinking about knitting myself some fingerless gloves, but these are so nice, I might have to give it a go. Thanks for the inspiration.


oh they are lovely. I have I knitted but they are just one colour. I must make some stripey ones.


I'm been whipping up wrist warmers for my co-workers' for Christmas! Poor dears work in an ice box. But yours I like even more. In fact, I LOVE! I've gotta get me some too. Thank again, Lucy, for the great inspiration.


Lucy ~ they are fantastic!Well Done! I somehow had a feeling that the little stripy sneaky peak that you showed us yesterday was finger mittens after you had mentioned them a couple of weeks ago. They are lovely and go very nicely with your Boden coat too. I made a start on a little ripple scarf yesterday so can see myself making mittens next. I hope you have a very lovely weekend :O)


That's so funny, I have been hankering after exactly the same things, not just because I think they look cool but I thought they'd be great for my arthritic wrists. I too decided they might be fun to make and just within my skill capacity! I'm just packing my knitting (crochet) bag for our holiday this week and I think it might just have to be my project. Love yours, they look brill.

P.S. We're staying in Pickering, my geography is horrendous but I do know it's Yorkshire so I shall look out for a stripey wristy warmer wearing lady, it might be you!


Lovely!! I was so inspired by your October-calendar-turning photo that I crochet myself some wrist warmers. I loved them so much I put them up in my Etsy shop (I'm even putting my shoe on in the picture). Yours are wonderful- I love the stripes!!


I do love wrist-warmers. I think they look really good (they don't keep your hands so warm but you can keep them on while doing stuff which is great); am loving the srippyness and colours of yours. I knitted some to match a scarf I made early spring-time. They were both cotton and where the scarf is fine the wrist-warmers went baggy and bobbley. I did love them though, it was my patten (v simple but who cares?) and I was so proud. Then I set them on fire and singed them along with a chunk of my hair because I wore them indoors admiring them and forgot the cooker was on. Never-mind. I still wore them after that though, but I think now they are squashed in a bag somewhere. I need me some Autumn ones now. Fingery ones for winter are I think beyond me to make.

I honestly prefer yours to the Joules ones - the length is better and I like the crochet patten better than the knitted rib. Prefer the chunkier texture too from your wool. Not to mention the colour blends and the edging around the thumbs and tops. Just everything really! Little people versions of yours or similar will be so cute.

I've got no money either and I buy from charity shops too. I find so much lovely stuff and although I don't think it's always very cheap I like giving things a home and I really really like what I get. There never used to be so much nice stuff! I've always bought books but now I find it really exciting looking at everything - in fact I got a new jumper today and want to make a very thin crochet scarf to wear with it. I have my favourite shops and they are like little treasure troves.


Oh my god Lucy these are gorgeous!!!!! And now I know how to finish off my not nearly so impressive knitted wrist warmers. You are pure genius! You might even see Mr T sporting a pair on Monday! Cx


I never thought there was anybody out there like me who thought clothes were too expensive and everything else too (being a Scot and watching my money). I now buy everything I possibly can on Ebay.I read your blog every day as I did when I was recently in Florida on holiday- (and yes I bought clothes there and Debbie Bliss yarn at 1/2 the UK price)- Denise


OOh Lucy the wristwarmers are brilliant - wear some shop bought ones when I am at the computer - but I am going to make some like yours this weekend - great idea and they look FAB. You must write a book one day! PS I like to call my second-hand stuff "pre-loved" sound cute dont you think x


they look so great!I've wanted wrist warmers for so long! you just made is sound unbelievably simple, I'm going to attempt a pair later tonight. Thanks for the inspiration :)


So colourful & cheerful, and superbly executed too. I likie very muchie - good work Lucy! And well done you for not giving into the WANTies ;o)


Hi Lucy,
I am so excited because I have been looking for a pattern for wrist warmers for quite a while. I love yours!! Thank you so much!!
Have a great weekend,

Wendy Wager

Oh wow, Lucy - I've been churning out knitted wrist-warmers for my Oxfam shop and when I just saw how much you wanted some, I was going to offer to make some for you in any colours you liked, but those crocheted ones are fantastic. Clever, creative you! Actually, the imminent postal strike might have made my plan impossible, but seeing your catalogue pictures made me realise how popular mine might be. I made most of them in Sirdar Crofter; not up to Rowan standard, but I'm funding them myself and it is wonderfully soft and produces an impressive Fairisle effect with no effort! have a good weekend x


Ooh, lovely! I'm planning on making some as c-word presents this year.
