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.

Very Beautiful!
I love the colours very much.


Love it. I'm working on a teeny granny patchwork for my toddler currently. Can't wait to see your finished product.


Can I send you my colours and you decide what order they go in? Haha! I LOVE this blanket!

Hi Lucy,

Thank you so much for your information on how to do colours - I really struggle with colour matching, but thanks to your fab creations I think I'm slowly getting the hang of it! In honour of your colourful work I have bought myself some super-colourful chunky rico merino wool... now just have to decide what to do with it!


I like the unexpected dark shades of yarn mixed in with the others colors. This is a frugal way to use up leftovers and give-aways. Thanks for the helpful hint about making a yarn color map, too.


Another pretty blanket! Thank you for sharing your process. I'm inspired! =>

Lookin' good!(but we knew it would).So glad to see some hooky goodness your way :)I just finished a throw,fall inspired one(posted on Attic24 inspired on Flickr).Love how it works up so quick,mine was very random(whatever yarn I picked up,lol)I did the squares the same way (work squares up to the last row)then add a row all at once.Great stash buster,for sure! Thinking of doing some baby blankets that way.Glad you're back!


Lucy, what a fabulously simple and logical way you have of planning colour - without it looking planned, if you get my drift...will try your 'grab and go' method ASAP - many thanks for your inspiration!

I love it! Looking at your blog always makes me want to crochet again!


Hi Lucy, I love, love, love your new blanket! It's absolutely fantastic and looks so wholesome and cosy. The dark squares look great. I have really loved reading about your decision making process for the colour scheme. It's always fascinating to find out how other people make their decisions for their projects. Enjoy the rest of your square making!

Hello from Liège in Belgium!
It's thanks to my daughter Lucie, 17, ( yes Lucie) that I discoverd your blog a few weeks ago. And I must say it's a real bliss.... Thank you so much for giving me so much colours and beauty. Your blog is uplifting. And, being myself a mother of five (yes 5!!!!!) I do appreciate the fact that you keep your kids "private" : no names, no pictures...
I'm a keen "crochetteuse" (don't know the name in englih) but I used to crochet only doillies and small curtains in white. As a result, I didn't know where to put them! And now, thanks to you, I'm discovering colors, flowers, cushions, blankets and no, granny squares are not old fashioned as as was used to heard!!!!
My sweet Lucie has already made a few things from your blog : a wreath, birds, 2 marvelous cushions and she's crochetting a blanket from hexagons. And her mother, old me, made the sweet flower blanket (without the tiny flowers I must say) in... less than two weeks! I've made a few birds to add tweets at my home. Now, I'm using all my left over wool to make solid squares in order to create another blanket "one day" whith all the left over to come.... My daughter and I have ordered 2 big bags of Stylecraft Special DK : she wants to crochet a big bag for her balls of wool, and I want to crochet a stipe squares!

Well, thank you so so much
Eh bien, merci beaucoup, beaucoup


Ah, love how the colours jump out at me from your photos! Looks really cosy and nice.

I just found your blog and I have to say that I think you are absolutely adorable and inspiring! i just love your happy colorful life :)


Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Gorgeous! How can any single day you are engaged with this project not be a good day!


I just love paying a visit to you! You are so inspiring and lovely.
Big hugs.


Its like an Elmer the Elephant blanket. The colours are just right


Hi Lucy.I love your new project. I am making a granny squares blanket too and I did not decided if I make a unique colour "frame" around them or if I just join them as you go.
I understand very well what you said about making the work portable.


It's coming along nicely.


Love it. I have been reading your blog for a while and have made some of your things. This is my first comment. I want to try this one!


This reminds me of Elmer the Patchwork Elephant, it's lovely :)


very beautiful your blanket!!!
if you like you can come and see my blog
I also really like crochet and I'm working on a granny blanket
greetings and kiss!!!


It made me smile when I saw those little snippets of yarn taped to the paper, because that is exactly what I do too! It looks lovely Lucy :)


I love your granny blanket, I am also working on a granny however, mine is for a granddaughter and it is worked in only two colors, Maroon and white....in honor of her high school. It is so very relaxing and accomplishing something at the same time. I know you enjoyed your time off, but I'm really happy that you are back. Your Alabama friend.


When I need to remember the colors for a row of crochet or knitting, I line them up and snap a quick pic with my phone. Then I always know what color is next.


I completely love it! I'm a little bit scared about doing a granny square blanket and I will confess I don't really understand about how you join up the squares - join as you go, or all at the end. That's the bit that puts me off. But when you can make something sooooo scrummy, maybe I just need to be a bit brave and jump right in and Have A Go. Gaaaaa!
