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

Have a fantastic time in Dorset, I am very jealous!

Lovin the new grey colours, your choice of colours is great and I'm looking forward to seeing your holiday tadah!!

Hope you all have a lovely week away.

I hope you have a wonderful time and get lots of peaceful hookey time. I never really like greys and browns in anything, but they go together really well with those other colours. You've opened my eyes to the possibilities of darker colours! Alice xx

Love the new colour palette! I'm rather partial to a bit of grey and taupe myself :)
I've been wanting to make one of these cushions - the yarn is lovely :)
Have a happy holiday!

Have a lovely time. Love the yarn that you showed us!


It looks like you took your color choices from the boat photo! Lovely.
Have a wonderful holiday.


Yes! I discovered the joy of neutrals about a year ago, working on a baby blanket for a friend. I used a light grey as the background color for a circle-motif in jewel and pale/bright tones. I couldn't believe how the grey set those beautiful colors off, the contrast was breathtaking! This will change how you consider color schemes from now on. You'll understand more about balance and contrast.


Happy holiday in Dorset. 8 weeks time we'll be heading to Bridport with our Carrievan and I'm so longing to see that lovely sea and sky.

Can't believe you've included grey and mocha...wow....that's a change for you for sure. Have a wonderful holiday beside the sea...hope it's warmer than Northern Ireland...freezing here.....take care and safe journeying.

Karen Hillier

Have a fantastic time Lucy! Breath in a good lungful of sea air for me :)
I have a circlular cusion pad that I bought for a project but turned out to be too big - I think a bit of circular hooky could be just the thing to cover it with!! I suppose I'll have to visit the wool shop and choose some lovely new colours.....shame!!
love Karen

You Rock!


Have a marvellous holiday dear Lucy xx


Made a few of those little blossoms to add to my Easter branch and just love the way they look. Thanks so much for the directions. Have a great time by the sea.


You are so lucky to be going to the sea. I wish we had someone to visit by the sea or, even better, that we lived by the sea!!
Hope you have a great time & some good weather.
I'm hoping to get hubbie's mum to teach me to crochet, while we're away, so I can have a go at some of your projects.


Oh wow, have a splendid holiday! Even I got holiday-excited just reading this post :-) The yarn is gorgeous, I agree with the greys working really really well with the other colours. I wonder whether you're going to visit that pretty little store again in Dorset? Please take a lot of pictures! Have loads of fun! :-) xxxx


Be safe on your trip. I absolutely love the way your put together color. Oops, I have ID'd myself as American with my spelling. I'm blessed to live a handful of miles from the ocean, and I understand your delight in returning. Looking forward to your next post.

Soak in all of that salty goodness and come back refreshed and renewed... Looking forward as I do to your next post!


Take me! Take me! Take me to the sea!!!

Have a blast!
