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

So happy for you! Blanket finished and gorgeous and time to sit and write about it!!! Good for you! Wishing you a lovely time away with your family, the new blankie and Connievan! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


Oh, Lucy, it's absolutely lovely!!! The whole post was well worth waiting for - I hope you enjoyed writing it as much as I enjoyed reading it. Thanks for the inspiration - I hooked right along with you and my darling, magical-happy-making Stripey Goodness is sitting right beside me as I type. Lovely. :)
Have a wonderful weekend visiting with Connievan and introducing your Granny Stripe to its new home. ~Shani xxx


Its absolutely beautiful Lucy and well worth waiting for!!


This is a colour bonaza!!

I've used stylecraft yarns for the whole time I've been crochetting - and I can safely say they are my number one :)

As for that beautiful, colourful, soft and snuggable, and bright blanket - I adore it. One of my favourite tada posts :)



Really lovely blanket, I love the border in particular.


Lucy, it is a Masterpiece!! Congratulations!

Lovely to see You, looking so happy :)

Oh Lucy it's so pretty! It reminds me of a bright stripey deck chair on a sandy beach, with blue skies and creamy ice cream, every stripe is like a little bit of holiday goodness! I am really tempted to make one too, my lys had that wool which is good as we've got a few bits left to get for bump and I should really put getting a cot over wool, unless do u think I'd get away with it we do have a nice big old drawer! He he xxx hope you have a lovely holl! Fliss xxx

such a beauty! I'm in love with your blanket, love the colours, love the edge! Lucy you're a star!

Please girl, you look beautiful!!! Question for ya: Do you block your afghans after or just let them be? I find that granny anythings generally don't need blocking as much, especially if they're just for around the house, but you never know. Was just curious!


Well that's my next project sorted :o)

Blooming gorgeous Lucy.


Beautiful! I love it! I cannot wait to finish mine!
Your soooo pretty! Your eyes are beautiful! Thanks for sharing..cannot wait to see pics in your caravan!


Aaaaaah! Your blanket is AWESOME!


That really is one beautiful blanket but then all of your crochet creations lovely.Hope you have a lovely breakand that the weather is as sunny and bright as your blanket. Chris x


FAB-U-LOUS!!! Well done Lucy, another fab blanket


Oh Lucy, it has turned out so gorgeous!!! I LOVE all the fun and happy colors in it. Thank you for sharing all about it. I am working on two ripples now based on your pattern. One is in a softer pastel color, and the other a more bold and bright color. :)


Hi Lucy - the blankie is absolutely colorific. Bask in the light of job well done!


it's so colorful and wonderful! and i'm really glad you had a good experience with acrylic... i agree with melissa that there is a wonderful selection in feel and color these days in acrylic yarn and it's definitely easier on the pocketbook! can't wait to see what you hook up next! -michelle


It's really lovely Lucy. With small children, I think acrylic yarn is the way to go. It washes beautifully, can be tumble dried without shrinking and just gets softer and more snuggly as the years go by.

I come back on the blogland after a very busy period (bridal of my daughter!) and I discover with pleasure the granny stripe. All these stripes of color are an enjoyment. Bravo for this blanket.
