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

Good for you Lucy! Little B looks absolutely gorgeous. Have a great weekend - I will be making a Union Jack cushion for my sister-in-laws birthday. Wish me luck, I am better with wool than fabric!

Oh bless him. I have two teenage boys (phew) and i breast fed them both. I really miss the bonding that babies crave.


Well I did all kinds of things (or tried to) while nursing my babe, but crochet was never one of them! Mainly because I had't learnt then, but I can't imagine doing it anyhow! The little squares are looking good!


Yay for Multitasking! Twas the only way I got any yarn time in when my second wee one came along. Thank goodness we women were made for Multitasking, eh?


What a lovely afternoon this looks to be:) And oh, how it makes me long for another baby! I have a photo of myself "multitasking" too: baby lying on my chest while I knit a sweater for her. It was a nice afternoon:) Be well!

I don't know how you do it Lucy, but I'm mighty glad you do - how amazing you sre to keep everyone happy and content :-)
Gorgeous photos and Little B - just too cute - it made my heart skip - Thanks so much and have a happy weekend xx


Milk tanker and hooker - female stereotypes redefined!:-D

Well done you for carving out some time for yourself, and thank you for keeping up with the blog, my heart skips when I log on and see a new post.

The Garden Bell - Kate

You think you are funny tempting us with just the top of his adorable head...Luc, Luc, Luc...you crack my up my side hurts so much from laughing. I totally get it and love it.

You are just whipping those grannies up. Perfect, as I'm ready for you to get done with this and start us on a one of those sweater charms. I've been having dreams about it since seeing your posting. I can't wait. Already, eyeing up the stash.

So, what better way to spend an afternoon, then being a Milk Tanker Hooker.... or M.T.H. for short for me....

Have a peaceful M.T.H. weekend and can't wait for your next WIP as we continue on the blankie.

Hugs and Wishes,
Kate - The Garden Bell


Just saying "hi!" Good job. Blessings to you.


Well done! Looking forward to seeing the finished blankie soon with Little B wrapped up in it! Have a lovely weekend

Aah....wonderful picture of peace and contentment....and more wonderful squares...do you know what I sat down and did this afternoon....I went through your blog and wrote down your colour choices...I have the worst problem putting colour together...with yarn....inks and gouache for calligraphy is one thing...wool is another...how is that for pathetic....so I've taken inspiration from you, I hope you don't mind - where, oh where do you get these gorgeous colours...when I search at our awful wool shop there is nothing like this....drat. We need a real wool shop where I can stroke and drool....thanks for all your inspiration through fantastic colours...you have a good weekend too. I am starting a cobweb shawl.....all the same colour!! Kind regards from Northern Ireland to Northern England.

Luckily we can multi-task!!! The photo remind me so much of me when I had our second one. Planned in advance for when it was feeding time so that I can have a crocheting time in my day - the feeling of contentness!!! Glad you got some enjoyment of the new blankie that's almost in sight. Have a good weekend and as always thank you for your lovely blog! Cxxx


I am SO impressed. I remember being proud that I could read a book and feed at the same time. He's such a little poppet.


Your Little B is just adorable. Your pillow is also quite cute too. Love the color combos you choose. Thank you for all of your insipiration and free (I still can't believe it - FREE) instructions. I am just finishing up a ripple blanket (inspired by you) and a flower pillow top (also inspired by you). I am going to try your ripple pattern next and am also going to try join as I go hexies. Thank you! :)

Petit Filoux

Oh how lovely!! Multitasking, that's what it's all about!! x


You are so clever, and seem so content... lucky baby!
Thanks for sharing all the vintage images with us this week- such nostalgia! I was making granny square afghans when that book was published.
Saw some even older hooky magic in the movie Bright Star by Jane Campion last night- early 1800's tiny, tiny intricate squares made into cardigan/wraps on two of the women - just wonderful.

I'm so glad you are a multi-taker because I look forward to seeing what you are crocheting next!! What kind of yarn do you like working with best?? I'm up for trying something new. When you sit down to crochet all these little ones, do you crochet, for instance, all the blue then go on to another color and crochet all them, etc., etc. ?


I used to do that too! Except it wasn't with crochet, I did hand sewing. :)


Your soooooo creative in more ways than one, ha ha

Love Carole from Rossendale xxxxxxxxx
