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

Tu nous offre un véritable feu d'artifice de couleur. Merci a toi pour ces petits bouts de bonheur. Et merci d'être revenue sur la blogosphère ;-) bonne semaine ;-)


So glad you are blogging again. Is there or is there not a book?????

I would love you to come up with a pattern for a peg bag and curtain tie backs in your "style" Any chance???

I love all your designs and me a knitter!!


How do you make things so quickly? I'm so glad you're back I missed looking into your colourful world :-) x


It's stunning Lucy, love that it's traditional and a bit funky at the same time. I really must master the join as you go thing! Lovely to have you back in attic-land xxx


Lovely, I am doing a copy of the Cherry Heart blanket. Isn't it funny how differently we do our planning. I have a completely alternative method!


Lucy I am already filled with other projects already . I look at this one your making and guess what I want to make one too LOL. Yours is looking so lovely. Welcome back:)


I love the way this is turning out! It's gorgeous.


This is so lovely, a fun project to use up leftovers has become a thing of beauty! I'm in the middle of several large crochet blanket projects but I end up leaving them for a while because I can only really do them at home because I'm crocheting the whole width in stripes, something like this might be better

Your lovely blanket reminds me of Elmer the colourful elephant!

Delena Johnston

I love your colorful blog. From your granny square blankets to your house decor everything is so full of color and pleasant to the eye!


It is fabulous and I just love it. A beautiful colour explosion in granny goodness.


It looks lovely! I am loving the very dark purple colour.


Hi Lucy,
Welcome back - I have missed your colourful stories. So pleased things are back to normal. Happy hooking!

I am just so entertained by your posts and the colours just cheer me.


Welcome back! I, for one, am having a fantastic time with the granny square CAL and am loving your progress!

It looks beautiful. I think the dark colours work really well and add depth to the overall look.

Thanks to your join as you go method I'm happily hooking up a summer garden granny square cushion cover. It is absolute genius, it makes life so much easier!

I'm so glad you are back.


I am sooooooooo happy to see you posting again. I have missed them terribly, but so thankful you were able to take some time for you and your sweet little family. Time outs are good. ☺ I LOVE your yarn map. What a fabulous idea. Thank you for sharing your hooky goodness and tips with us. I can't wait to see more progress! Yay! ☺


While looking for handmade holly leaves, by beautiful serendipitous chance I stumbled across your fabulous blog and have spent the evening immersing myself in all those gorgeous pictures. Absolutely love what you are doing and it has spurred me on to get a shift on with my projects too. Three kids also has meant a lot of things have been on hold, but the oldest has now moved on and so I have been able to recolonise our attic space that was formerly hers. Being able to leave work out is bliss. Such pleasure to have found you!


I did a big one of these a couple of years back. I was told by my kids that it looked nicer sewn together. Took yonks but they were right. It's really tidy and worth the extra bit of time. Not sure about dark colours prefer without. I like a bit of grey though.


Beautiful Lucy!!!!What is random method?How I find it? Thanks so much from Argentina!!!!!


Lovely!It looks like pixels of a huge picture! AriadnefromGreece!

Little Blue Elephant

Lovely blog post. I love the colour map idea - fantastic. Thanks for sharing Sandra's beautiful creation link.


As someone who considers herself organised I stand (well, lounge on the sofa) in awe of your little system! I lay colours out and take a photo on my phone but I like the idea of the little snips of yarn. Oh, but the little bag with just those colours and hooking 4 rows plus 1 side ready to join later at home is ingenious!! Today, blanket planning; tomorrow, the world....

i love what you're doing and I have some squares started aaaages ago (yep the 'elmer' blanket) but had to stop for other commitments ie 'The Blanket of Doom'- not my colour choice and with several false starts but being made with love for a special teenage girl. Now have promised winter stuff and xmas stuff to concentrate on - LOTS of them, but in January (or even on xmas day itself) I will start something for ME yaaay.
You were my very first blog read and opened up a new and wonderful world of like minded people, isn't it fab.
So glad you are back.

It's wonderful, all your creations are. I am working on a 6 round solid granny granny (with a giant granny centre that sort of happened) started on holiday at the end of August and I carry the 8 colours I am using around, hook up a square in each, then JAYG several at a time, hook up a few more so I am sort of planned random. My family think planning random is just so funny! Then I start rabbiting on about the ends.. mine wasn't supposed to be that big but it is quite significant size. I am getting badgered to finish, by the 16yo whose blanket it is. Thank you for your continuing inspiration!
