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, stay at home Mum with three young children. We live in a 100year old Victorian house in the North of England which we are slowly renovating, and here I spend my days :: mothering, decorating, crocheting, baking, sewing, crafting and gardening. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world. xxxx

I am very excited about our ripple along - can't wait to show you my progress in a bit! x

Alicia

Ooh how exciting! I can just imagine you on the phone to each other saying" ok post now!".
Can I ripple along even though I've already started? This might be just the push I need to get me finished.

Susan Matuszewska

Just feasting my eyes on this yarn-pool, absolutely addicting, don't know whether I will be able to tear myself from this sight and fix dinner tonite! ahhh, you've made my grey day bright and beautiful, xo,jo

LaceAnn

I agree with the others; How Exciting!!! You're aready off to a beautiful start. How fun too that you have a buddy working right along side you :) It sounds like you are going to have a very warm and snuggly cold-weather project this year! Also, thanks so much for sharing your color theories with us!

Looove it looove it!!!! I can't wait to start my own ripple blanket. Colours look great!! Can't wait to see the finished blanket. Again I just looove it! Nikki

Kezia

Wow, your colour combos are fabs and really work great together! Its interesting because when I look at your colours individually they are not really what I would choose but put together they are really pleasing on the eye and very vibrant! Very helpful advice about choosing the colours as well - thank you, hopefully it will encourage me to step out side of my normal colour choices. You are so inspirational;)

Jackie

Exciting rippling times ahead then! I'd love to have been able to join in with a ripple along but I have just embarked on a Blue Granny Stripe blankety journey of my own and as it is for a Christmas pressie I will just have to content myself with watching the ripply progress from the sidelines. Looking forward to seeing how you both progress though! :O)xx

Freydis Aradottir

Thank you for this post on colors and design. It makes my day bright and happy. Looking forward to see progress pictures.

This is such a great post. I love that you showed the two yarn stash selections side by side to highlight the points that you were making and the importance of taking time to choose yarn colors that are exactly right for your projects!

Libby

Lucy, thanks so much for sharing your color selction process with us all! Your colors and talents are what draw me and all of us here each day to glean inspiration. I haven't crocheted so much EVER. And it seems there is something new I want to do each time I check in to visit your Attic. LoVe your new ripple idea! 'Sigh'
MUST finish my two projects first...

Karen

I am mid ripple at the moment - it is my first and I love it. The colours are chosen by my 14 year old son who wanted it based on a red, white & blue scheme. I have managed to expand him to 8 colours - 4 blues, red, two purples and white. I tried to smuggle some pink in there too but he would have none of it. The next blanket will be for me, me, me and the colours will be all my own. Can't wait!

Liz

What a wonderful idea!!!

I'm just finishing off my granny stripe - I started this with the intention of being ready for this winter - luckily not much more to do!!!

Then I think it'll be another ripple. A ripple for us. Just have to decide on colours for when we decorate our bedroom next week, as this is where I'd like it to go!!

Kristen

Ooooh, lovelovelove! Those colors are really popping, next to each other. You have such a fantastic eye. :)

Kate

I've come over from reading Heather's post on your ripple-along and think its s great idea! I love your colour choices, a real rainbow. I'm still quite reserved on colour choices, i'm not so confident just yet. And i'm still to master the ripple, i just cannot get it right but i'm desperate to have a ripply, snuggly blanket of my own. K xx

Jude

Oh. My. Gosh. Gorgeous or what! I have so got to do a ripple blanket. Looking forward to watching this progress. Jude.x

Rainy Day Crafter

Oh, I just love your new ripple blanket - your colours are just wonderful and I love the design too. I can't wait to see more of it!

And it was so interesting to read about how you go about choosing your colours. I'm finding it amazing with the squares I'm crocheting for my blanket how sometimes colours I don't expect to go together somehow work so well, while colours I think will be great just don't work at all!

Christelle

Just restarted my Ripple, after frogging THIRTY TWO ROWS this weekend. Yes. Starting again.
Like the design, with the different widths.

Ooooh I started a Ripple last week, I might just re start my blog and ripple along with you. I am going to go and see how little thought I put into my colour selection now!!!

KahviKaneli

Oooh my...
I can't stand how beautiful colours! Again.
Inspired by You, i have started Hexagon Blanket and The Ripple Blanket.
I love doing that Ripple Blanket, hardly can do my daily work because of that...

kelli woodall

Ya know, I've never been fond of red until just recently. I quite like red and yellow together. Your ripple is very pretty so far, the red really does make it pop. Can't wait to see it done!

Mary Grace McNamara

How fun to ripple with a friend! I might just have to arrange something like that for myself! Looking forward to sharing your journey with this blanket.

MGM

not so granny

Ooo, how lovely. Feeling even guiltier about my own unfinished ripple (blogged about at the weekend) which is destined for a new life as I'll never get it to full blanket size!
