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

Looking forward to seeing your next post tomorrow.

So good. :-D


I'm a Spanish follower of your blog. Everything in it is so nice that I check it every day. Congratulations for your creativity and "colourfulness".
(I'm also addicted to crochet, but I haven't got a blog yet)


well done, can't wait to see it. I'm still working on my random ripple but it's coming on well if a wee bit slowly and I haven't such a good excuse as you. I'll be back tomorrow to have a peak.

It looks amazing Lucy, but oh how I know those feelings - of night time hooky that is as during the day, well let's just say 'I can forget it!!'

take care,

Nina xxx

Fantastic work Lucy! Well done you!


Oeh, can´t wait to see your Granny Stripes!! I´m also making one, but it takes a lot of time and I can´t do one thing at a time so I´m also making an amigurumi, flowers and a Ipod case... where is the time...??

I am so enjoying rippling along at the moment but your stripes are gorgeous.
Has anyone got a spare finger I have been stuck on 35 followers for ages-- Can you remember that feeling!
Kindest Regards Linda


Wow wow wow....it's gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous!!!!! x


I love it, fab colours! Well done.


I know the feeling of trying to crochet with a little one on your lap. My 24 (almost) week old daughter has a great fascination with the yarn and crochet hook and loves to give it a good yank! My main knitting and crochet time is in the evening too, usually after 9 once she has gone to bed. Just going to start the edge now of my crochet bag (going to check the shell pattern again!) and then it will be only the finishing touches. Thanks for the great pattern. x


Looks fantastic.
Need to make one.
Can't wait to see it all x

Love the picture with Little B's fingers grabbing the bright, colorful yarn. Oh, my, that must be a trick to do any hooking with him around!! It looks fabulous, though!




Good work!! I have just mastered your neat ripple pattern, you are right, so many others are uber-complicated. Made even easier with lots of brill photos. Thank you for the colour!!


Congratualtions Lucy and I shall come back to see the pictures. I am up to about 60 rows and i bought a little more wool today. This is my practice blanket for the car. I have some cotton wool waiting for the next attempt. I do love the colours that you have used. Many thanks for your email concerning the amount of wool to use.

You abSOLutely know how I feel about this one. I'm up to my elbows in your glorious colors here. Finally, decided which direction to take.

You know everything does come FULL Circle in our lives, whether we are ready for it or not. It never stops amazing me what world that one little google search did to change the direction of my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and for making it soooooo much easier to go out in 95 degrees to water and then fix dinner.....seriously, who wants to cook and eat, when I much prefer doing a couple more circles of friends.

Can't wait for the big reveal!!! It's always so exciting when a project is finally finished.


Hi Lucy,
I hope you can direct me on how to make this gorgeous blanket....only with US directions! LOVE it!!!


Looking forward to the big reveal!
The colours are brilliant. :)

Oooooh what a sight! Yummy, scrummy, oodles of gorgeousness. Oh I know too well the feelings of frustration at wanting to get something finished, but the kiddiwops, just seek the utmost attention! You feel frustrated at their demands, then guilty at feeling frustrated, as, quite rightly, they should be top of the list.....but sometimes it's just sooooo hard! Especially when you are totally loving what you are working on. It's like a drug, a fix, that feeling of nearing the end and seeing it in all its glory. Ahhhhhhhh.

My three year old llikes to ask for things as soon as I sit down and pick up a hook. I try to get him to help choose and put colours together to keep him occupied, although his favourite pastime is wrapping all the yarn around his toy car wheels and getting it all tangled! Boys will be boys!

Well, I am sure that the big ta-dah reveal will be awesome and I am totally looking forward to it! Sleep well if you can! Love Vanessa xxxxxxxx

P.s.....I joined Ravelry. I don't know how you do it Lucy? Wow, it seems a little overwhelming to a newbie, although I realise I cold quickly get very consumed by it. hummmmm, I think I may be in fear of being lynched by Social Services for complete neglect to the bears. Could become addictive! ha ha! Nighty night! x
