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

OoooOOooo.... I really must try the joining as you go method. It's the idea of all those ends that puts me off doing a large blanket made up of little squares.

I love balling up yarn. It's so simple and yet soothing as well. :)

Just thought I would let you know, I mentioned in my blog as one of my favourite places to visit. :)


I have plans for a similar blanket for my sisters 40th next year - going to base the colours on Elmer the Elephant who she loves!!


Hi Lucy, lovely to see your latest project. As you say , such a simple pattern and so easy to work on even if you are distracted or tired. I'm still making mistakes in my ripple on occasion ...uggg.
Hope you have a relaxing holiday with plenty of hooky time.
Thanks for the link :0)

You're so restrained to wait until you finish one project before starting another. Me, I currently have about five on the go. I must learn some self-control. Good luck with the navy and dark purple!


Enjoy your holidays and your family!I am now reusing my yarn leftovers to do your Yarn Bag, and it's all bright and colourful and lively!It makes me smile! I also have to tell you i love purple, I even got married in purple, so give it a try because it is an exotic, misteryous and magical colour! ;) have fun!


I have loved lounging in bed this morning with a cup of tea catching up on your summer holidays. York and Connievan looked amazing. Alas I married a man who won't camp or caravan. With 6 children it's the holiday that would best suit our purse. Never mind. I was whisked away with you for a little while.

Your new project looks as colourful as ever. I got a crochet hook with Mollie makes maybe now is my time.

Have you ever thought of instagramming? It's micro blogging through photos. I'm addicted. You would be so so popular.

I haven't commented in months but always read your lovely blog. Thanks Lucy.

I love that blanket, seen a few others & they're so great, am looking for a new one to make up (lots of leftovers too) seems like the perfect choice!!!!
The villa is wonderful, what a location, will be like heaven :)
Have a sweet weekend

Lovely! I'm loving the simplicity of the solid grannies. It makes me wish I had done solid colors for the granny I just started. But I went big and I'm doing different colors for every round. I love balling up yarn too, mostly mine comes at the end of a project and I'm getting ready to turn my back on the yarn, for a little while anyway. I'm sure all your colorful and wonderful projects for Connie will make her the coziest Connie of all! I know I'd love to at least take a nap in all that splendor!
Hugs and love!


The blanket will be stunning even with the dark blue and the purple, for sure!!
anyway, enjoy your next holiday week in the company of your lovely family,
take care, xx Alessandra

Just wondering...How many blankets do you have?
I am sure you do not need any duvet up there! :P

take care,


It is so simple but so effective! Enjoy your holiday! see you soon!


Lovely squares! :)


What a gorgeous new project .. it will be just lovely when it is finished ... Bee x


Have a fabulous time in Craster!



I thought I'd better let you know that the link to Provence Temptations isn't working. :( Thanks,


Have a fabulous time away.

Hiya Lucy, Sometimes a new project is just the perfect thing to do especially at this time of the year. I've definitely lost a bit of my crafting mojo at the moment with the school hols so I'm going to start something new which will hopefully then give me the impetus to finish those WIPs that keep calling to me!!!

Have a lovely time at Craster... I'm so jealous of all your jaunts this summer!

Sometimes the simplest things end up the most effective. Can't wait to see it finished, and I'm sure it will have a little Attic 24 magic in the border? Vicki x


I have just read about the holiday and feel so sad. Its rather costly at the moment. Wouldnt it be gret to arrange a weekend in england!



OMG that holiday would bankrupt me! I got to go to a craft retreat in NY for the same price. Still I would have loved to have gone. Cant you do a retreat here!! Have fun at Craster its not far from me. Still learning to crochet even if it is knots!!!

Have a lovely holiday! :)

I just wanted to let you know that I found your blog last night, and I just love your colourful work! I just finished my last project with granny squares, and when I found your crochet bag I knew that it was going to be my next project. :) Thank you for the inspiration!

Nothing to touch the joy of starting a new yarny project and playing around with balls of yarn in assorted colours! Your new blanket is going to be wonderful - so cosy in Connievan and perfect for allowing your mind to wander and dream while you do it. Doesn't get much better than that! Enjoy every minute and the joy will be in every stitch and come off the finished blanket in waves! Have a lovely sea-side (and hooky!) time in Northumberland! E x


We've just returned from a week in Belford, Northumberland. Have you been to Chain Bridge Honey Farm - wonderful sandwiches and cakes and an interesting place for adults and kids!! Xx

Have a marvelous time, Lucy, and I love the new project. I have begun sewing patchwork and am winging my way thru a few projects with your colors as inspiration. Thank you.
