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

I still need to make that bag! Ooooh a new WIP, I wonder....?

Fancy Elastic

ah, loving the hyacinths in the cornishware.


I am surprised you are still using grey crochet hooks - have you never seen these beauties?


It makes crocheting even more fun (if that were possible)!!

Looking forward to seeing more of your WIP...


Gorgeous pics as usual! And this bag of yarn... so yummy! Can't wait to discover what your latest project is! Already got some ideas but...?


My friend brought me lots and lots of bulbs to plant yesterday - I need a royal garden to plant them all and I only have pots on the balcony, so I've started giving some to friends. Hmmmm! Maybe I'll add some of them to my giveaway (just thinking out loud!)
These glass ornaments are so beautiful!
Take Care! Thanks for brightening my days.


Christmas must be coming if hyacinths are on sale - I must get some, I so love the scent. It is lovely to see the way that you have brought some colour to this wet, grey November day!

This is all so beautiful and a lovely start to the day! i had a technical question: What do you do with your ends when you switch colors? Do you let them hang out or do you incorporate them into the next row? How do you do it with granny squares? I always have 80 billion hanging threads when I'm done and it drives me a bit insane! Love reading your blog. I just discovered it and it is my new fave.


Such wonderful treasures! I love the hyacinths and am glad they are in a good home, rather than with me who seems to be only able to grow children. Can't wait to see more of that WIP. ~Kelly

Lucy ~ I love your three thing this time round. I don't usually get bulbs for the inside the house but this year I might just give it a try. Love the very colourful stripes in your new project too! Hope you have a very lovely weekend :O)


Beautiful, from the hyacinth's budding to the blue bowl, to the lovely paperweights (I adore) and onto the bag of yarn! And the stripey-in-progress...yes, looks too narrow for a blankie...guess I will find out eventually :-)
And what is that in the background? Looks like perhaps it is a fairly nicely lit day? Not too dreary? Looks like it's a bit brighter in the first picture :-)
Happy crocheting~!

Wow! Your color bag is delicious looking! You have the gift of color - you really do!


Must buy some hyacinths - yours look lovely - cant wait to see what the new WIP is x

Petit Filoux

Hi Lucy,
I have a stack of Rowan 4-ply Cotton, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to use them ever.
I feel weird asking but would you want me to send them to you?
my email is: ayseyetisbayraktar@gmail.com

Mmm, hyacinths love,love,love! Paperweights are gorgeous, bet they look spectacular with the sun bouncing off them. I can't use the metal crochet hooks jar my hands, so use good old clover soft touch, they are metal with nice soft warmness to hold.


I love the hyacinths, especially in that bowl. I recently found two blue and white striped jugs from Staffordshire England all the way over here in an antique/thrift store here in Wyoming. I snapped them up immediately and love them. Your paperweights are beautiful, I could stare at them for quite a while, especially the way the light hits them, and your new WIP, I wonder what it is. I do love the stripes and such beautiful colours. Have a great day Lucy!


Hello there!

I like your new photo, you look blooming! Little budding hyacinths are most necessary at this time of year, I am still trying to decide if to have pink or blue this year - a heck, why not both!! I always enjoy seeing your crochet work, it seems to lift the day no matter how dreary the weather!

Cant wait to see the new WIP unfolding!

Love Julia x

JeaLous.... I love you beautiful fresh new plant and it looks superb in your blue and white striped bowl. Can't wait to see it in full bloom.

Wow, another fun stash of yarn. Once again, some great colors. Does the yarn shop come to you now? If not, they should. But, that would only happen in HObbiT land. Amazing that you have another goodie up your sleeve. Just don't know where you are finding the time.

Love your new picture on the blog. It's the best yet. You are looking great. Now if I could just see TGB on the blogs I love....ROFL-ROFL...he-he... chuckle-chuckle... laugh-laugh.. crazy-crazy.. silly girl-silly girl...pesterieee-pesterieee.... The strange goals we set ourselves up for. Only when you are ready....

Have a great, great weekend and don't work to hard on the new adventure. Ok, work hard so we can see some of the WIP on Monday.

HuGs and HOoks,

Shelley in SC

Thanks for sharing your simple joys of the day! They always make me smile.

Anna-Karin, Sweden

See you changed your picture up in the left corner. You really look so calm and satisfied with your life in that photo. Love that!! And with your new blankie!
Oh, and I love the hyacinths, they smell so gorgeous!!
And, as usual, your yarn looks yummie!
Have a great weekend Lucy!!!
Love Anna xxx


oooooh is this your new satchel-bag WIP? how exciting!

Christine Warren

Is your WIP for your bathroom window? ;)

Riikka, Finland

Hi Lucy!! I just found your blog and I immediately fell in love with it!!! <3 Beautiful colours!!!


I know you'll not find all the colours you like, but have you ever tried the Twilleys Freedom Sincere?? it's a DK, all organic cotton, it costs a lot less than Rowan (2.2 on ebay, 2.95 in John Lewis), and it's a LUUUUV to work with that...a lot softer, feels like a cloud, you can mix and match with Rowan (I did an hexagon blanket for our Poang chair, you know the ikea curved-timber-boing-boing-chairs?)


Love your glass ornaments! They are so beautiful. Your newest crochet project is beautiful as well.
