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 because she is awesome :)


Congratulations to the LL and you!

Knitting is just single crochet - but with two needles !

Being a knitter, I think of Crochet as just knitting, but with one needle.

(Anything to get my head around things LOL!)


Aw, bless her. My "little girl" was 23 before I finally managed to convince her to knit. And then she chose a cardigan in 4 ply mohair! :-D It's still waiting to be finished, although she has completed lots of other projects meanwhile. If only there had been a lovely book like that all those years ago. What a very proud Mummy you should be. Well done Little Lady. Jude.x


What a sweet story! Congratulations for Daughter and for Mom also :)


Awww! and wow! what a clever little girl, you'll be making a quilt together in no time Lucy! xx


That´s so sweet - and she´s WAY ahead of me! :-D


I love this, such a clever girl. Her purse is fab, I could do with something similar to keep my lip gloss in!


I'm a knitter through and through and never not have some sort of knitting with me wherever I go, so it warms my heart to see your little lady learning the craft...my niece turns 6 in June and has been bugging me for at least 2 years to learn 'the knit sticks' as she calls them...I think her time is coming to. keep up the knit sticks!


Aaaaaw, this post made me :) So sweet!!! I hope that when we have children, I'll be able to do crafty things with them.

Mary Grace McNamara

That's something she will never forget for as long as she lives! Her purse turned out just beautiful and I am sure she will be knitting up a storm before long! Good for her, and good for you too for not letting your dislike of knitting hold her back! What a pair you two will make in the yarn shops!


Melissa Langer

oh my gosh!
she did an amazing job!
her stitches are perfect!
your post gave me goosebumps!
what a wonderful family you are!

Andrea at Apples and Pears

Wow! Well done Little Lady!!! My mum taught me to knit when I was around that age and I am so thankful that she did. I have enjoyed a long, long love affair with all things yarn. The little purse is really, really good :)

Lynda M O

Very cool, Lucy. My mom taught me to knit at about that age and I still remember the day. She knit Barbie clothes for us by the tote case full: business suits, bikini, countless cardigans and pants, skirts, turtleneck sweaters.... Your daughter is well on her way to being a lifelong fiber-lover.


Ah bless Lucy that is so sweet. What a clever little girl.
Love Carole from Rossendale xxx


Oh how sweet, bless her. I remember when I was taught how to knit by my nan. I remember when and where! It's not something I do now, sewing is my thing taught to me by my mum.
Well done you for teaching her.....she will remember that when she is older and look back with fond memories too x


What a lovely child! She makes crafts very well already!!

Thanks for sharing!


I taught my son how to knit when he was seven. He picked it up very quickly and made a beautiful scarf. But then we were stuck for other simple things for him to make so his enthusiasm waned :(
Now that winter is coming, hopefully we can find another project and get him started again. I love the purse - so cute.


Well done to both of you. That is the most lovely story. I hope to teach my little neice and maybe my son lots of crafty pursuits as they grow older, you're little one has learnt a life long skill that will hopefully bring her much happiness.


Brilliant job Little Lady! Well done. I taught the children next door to knit over the summer - they wanted to make scarves and I love it when they knock on the door and ask if they can come in and do their knitting! I thought it cool that the little lad aged 11 wanted to knit! Its great passing it on to the next generation of crafters xx

Claire Smith

Ooooh Lucy, that takes me back to when I was 6 and my great auntie Ellie taught me how to kniw. It was a little red egg cosy.

I thought I was soooo clever.

Well done LL fabulous job, this is the start, how exciting and that owl is to cute, am sure dad is going to love it.


hi! im a 12 year old girl who just love to knitt and crochet, i just have to LL knitting looks really good! the first thing i knitted was a blanket (it look alot worse than LL purse) and now i knitt and chrochet all the time. hope LL has fun knitting!! (it sounds like she will..)

boo textiles

what a wonderful post. I can't imagine how proud you are and how happy your daughter is. I loved learning to knit and I'm a real advocate for passing on homemaking and craft skills. They are sooo rewarding and soooo useful. Thanks for sharing. xx


Such a beautiful post Lucy, and well done to you both. Little Lady has done a fabulous job and just between you and me, I think her knitting is better than mine. :)
Thank you for sharing.
Anne xx


You can tell that she has got your talent. Very clever girl who did a great job! Love the book! (oh, and your blog too (-; )


Brilliant! Well Done Her!! She should be very, very proud of herself! Cx
