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

Your so lucky. The book is gorgeous and addictive by the looks of it. Hey, has baby been good and let you have some free time!


i have the wanties now...


dm anderson

This is a Japanese yarn company who has a ton of free patterns. The blue dots are the crochet patterns. Be warned, you will lose yourself here.


Those first few photos look like they could be from Attic24!! Definitely gorgeous! I'm going to hunt down a copy of that book...

I've been working on a few birds to make a mobile. Thank you for the tutorial(s), the birds are super cute!

That's it then.Now we are lost in Japan !! Thanks Lucy.
Just love it.
Kindest Regards Linda


Want. It. Now. I'm going to have to get it to go with the one Gail's mentioned that should be with me in a couple of weeks.


There is always something truly beautiful about all Japanese craft books. I have a couple Zakka sewing books at the moment and I just look through them and drool. Also very simple, but oh so beautiful.

ohh could you post how you neatly join the rounds because no matter how i try to tidy up that slip stitch at the end of the round it always pulls and looks messy

Gorgeous hexagon!!! Can't wait to see more!


haha lucy hi :) ive seen quite a few similarities between you and I and the latest being the newest japanese crochet book you've found on etsy! I absolutely love the cover, can only imagine what is inside. ♥


lol , i was so excited i forgot to mention that i had fav'd that book a while ago, just so i could drool over it. do get it so we can have a peek inside ;)


Ooooo - I LURVE the crochet covered hangers!!! Now I want this book!!


Hello - been reading your lovely blog for a long time now but always stayed in the shadows admiring your crochet but when I saw that photo with the baskets of yarn my heart actually physically ached - I know exactly how you feel (I keep scrolling up as I'm typing this to look at it!!!)

Mary Brockmeyer

I've never really been tempted to crochet all those fiddly little bits,(your pattern excluded from that comment) but that afghan - OOOH - I'm ready. Is there a way to share that pattern without infringing on copyright?


love the book, want to do the hexagon quilt.


I cannot find the right words to express what I feel when I look at these stunning pictures.
A feast for the eyes.

Oooh, gorgeous. I want to make those coat hangers....... so pretty.


That book looks so inspirational. I can't wait to see what you make from it. I fancy having a go at those crochet covered hangers. I may have to get that book!!! Thank you for letting us have a peep inside! x


I am always blown away by Japanese crochet! Thanks for sharing.


Well Lucy you have done it again!!! I want the book, I want to make the hangers and the hexies. First I have to get the book! I would absolutely like to know how to read the diagrams...just knowing the symbols would be so helpful. I am going straight to the web sites to order. THANKS, Robbie : )


Oh Yes a georgeos book right in your alley. Same colors and style if you asked mee. Liked the hexieblanket. Lovely.


Well done for the find. I must admit I'd never be brave enough to buy a book in a foreign language ... let alone a different alphabet! Japan never struck me as having a crochet culture either! I mean can you crochet a kimono??!!!
Looking forward to seeing yout take on the makes


So, I've never really cared for crocheted hangers, but those are so fabulous! I totally want some!


Drooooool.... It looks wonderful and I love your hexagon. If you do find a better way of joining the rounds I would love to know as mine are messy too. :)
