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

It's gorgeous Lucy - I hope connievan appreciates it!!
Now what's next?????


Lucy, it's stunning. Absolutely perfect for your Connievan, it will be so wonderful to snuggle up with on your adventures. You are right, the edging just completes it perfectly. Well done!


Brilliant, Lucy. Now please have an extra long snuggle under it...enjoy your holiday and rest as much as you can. xxxxx


looks really good. nice work!!


Ahhhhhhhhh (big contented dreamy sigh that)it is beyond words, those colours just zing and dance and make me feel very jolly and holidayish all at once. Its perfect for your caravan, Im picturing it in my mind, yes I can see it being very at home in Connievan!
I like your new stitch too, reminds me of the crests of little waves...
As for your lovely self, you look radiant rather than worn out - perhaps that is the delight of finishing another gorgeous blanket methinks...

Much love to you

Stunningly beautiful, Lucy! (and I mean YOU, first of all, then the granny stripe!)

I hooked a scarf from your inspiration! So, thank you!


Mari from Finland

What a lovely blanket! I think I'll have to try the pattern myself.

By the way, have you heard of a Swedish designer called Gudrun Sjöden? She designs women's clothing and home collections. Very colourful! Check out her website at www.gudrunsjoden.com.


Really gorgeous, Lucy!! I love your blanket and the edge you´ve created!! I´m using this pattern for a rug and I´m anxious to show you the result!! (but it´s not finished yet... humpf!)

Linda Earnest from USA

Absolutely lovely! The librarian at the library where I volunteer on Tuesday evenings got me started on your blog. My favorite pictures is the loooonnnggg one of your blanket.


A beautiful blanket, Lucy - well done, well done, well done! I love the photos, especially the 'vertical stripes' one - it actually seems to move as I scroll down! It's been good to have you back but enjoy your break - I look forward to reading your next lot of news.

Aah, its lovely !
Very well done, to get that colourful blanket made and beautifully finished when you are so busy is a real achievement!
You may feel weary but you look very pretty, all that colour suits you.

Dear Lucy an absolutely outstandingly stunningly beautiful colourful blanket!!!!
You are as ever an amazing inspiration to us all. I have just about finished making my first ever blanket in strips of treble just need a border around the edge. Then I am determined to tackle a ripple and then there is the bag to tackle and finally the granny stripe. No doubt by then you will have come up with lots of other wonderful projects.
You are one in a million a STAR!!!
Have a great holiday and a well earned rest. Love and Hugsxxxxxxxxxxx

Lucy, your blanket is lovely. It will look right at home in your van. Have a wonderful time this weekend!


Thank you for sharing with us! You're right that it's gorgeous. I'm sure it will be right at home in connievan!
I've been lurking for awhile, enjoying reading your blog from the beginning, and wanted to say hi and how much I enjoy reading.


Lucy - your posts always make me feel so happy and excited. Thank you (again) for sharing



Lucy, What a beautiful work of art you made! Ok, so maybe acrylic has it's place afterall... lol. You may feel worn at times, but you look so at peace in your photo. Life is good, especially with yarn. Thanks for sharing.

Teresa Kasner

OH, Lucy!! What a perfect melding of colors - it's just completely fabulous! I especially love the photo of you wrapped in the blankie, you're an absolute doll. I'm working on my "Lucy Blanket" here in Oregon, USA, in the Columbia River Gorge. I'm using the Creative Cotton and it really feels NICE! I am always happy when I see a new post from you. Now... I can't wait to see photos of it in Connievan! Woo hoo!

Emma Stewart

It is lovely, I love colourful blankets and can't wait to find some time to make a snuggly all of my very own xxx


Lucy, your first Connievan blanket is absolutely lovely! I'm going to try a Granny Stripe shawl soon. Would you please consider doing a tutorial with pictures??
That would be awesome!!
Lots of love from Holland,


What a truly fab blanket! Connievan will literally glow with pride!

And I've found a shop selling that yarn near where I work too...


the blanket is lovely and the photos too.

Oh I wish I could crochet


glad to see you back!!

IMHO, acrylic is the way to go with afghans, mittens, hats, or other items that are going to get knocked about or used often. It is so very durable. and there are now some very nice selections in the acrylic field that are uber doober soft such as Hobby Lobby's "I Love This Yarn", or Micheals "Impeccable". and of course there's the tried and true Red Heart, which gets softer with each wash.

Your blankie is so nice!!
