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

How exciting! I'll be there for sure, looking forward to it already.


Oh, how I do wish I could be there! I have never heard of a similar event here in Switzerland. And, I am absolutely in love with your sheep. Thank you for showing it to us.


That is an offer most of your readers just Can't Refuse Lucy! I do hope I can find a friendly doggy sitter and so I can have a little break and sit and hook along with the natterers!
Every happy hooking best wishes to you and your family for this New Year!
Val xx Ps I just LOVE YOUR SHEEP!

What a wonderful idea! The sheep is spectacular.
Before I moved to Canada last year, I belonged to the Dorking Knit and Natter, which was great fun. We regularly knitted outfits for a giant cockerel statue that stands on a roundabout entering the town. When the Olympic cyclists did some laps on Box Hill, the cockeral was sporting Bradley Wiggins side burns, compliments of the Knit and Knatter group.
I've joined a new knitting group here in Nova Scotia, and am hoping we might 'Twin' with my English group, wouldn't that be fun!
Love your blog, you always see the positive in life. Thank you!

Nicola Revill

Are you kidding, I'm hopefully moving to the area very soon and that just sounds like a wonderful opportunity I can not miss, see you there!!!!


Oh wow. I want to go, I need to go! Now I have just a few months to convince my wonderful husband that he wants to look after our (sometimes!) wonderful children by himself for a whole weekend so I can come too!! Fantastic idea you clever lady! xx


That sheep is amazing I LOVE it! I sooo want to go to Yarndale but we live all the way down on the south coast :( My birthday is in September though... perhaps I'll get treated to a mini break in North Yorkshire :) xxx


Oh, so exciting! Perhaps I'll be able to persuade my husband that an autumn-vacation to England is a brilliant idea. Sweden to England may be a bit far for yarn.. Or not!

Thank you for your lovely blog! I've been very inspired by you, check out my blog and see! In swedish though, but we all speak Yarn don't we :D



I have to find a crochet group and join it! What fun! That sheep is super cute! Your event looks like lots of fun! I wonder what we have here in the US that is similar?


That sheep is awesome!!!
Maybe I'll be seeing you at Yarndale in september. As a Dutch woman and being an Anglofile, I'll try to visit the UK once or twice a year. Let's see if I can get my hubby interested in a visit to North Yorkshire :)
I have a look at your blog almost daily and I love it. Like me you love colour :)
And like the lady above said: you always see the positive in life. And that's a good thing!
Keep up your good work.....I love it!!!

Sara Jenkins

Oh - it sounds wonderful and exciting. I'm just wondering if I can get there - Sussex to Skipton - not a 5 minute journey, and its my son's birthday weekend, but I want to go! :)

Lucy in the Clouds

Oh this sounds wonderful - pencilling it in my diary now!!


Illicitly reading this at work (sssshhh!) and am so excited....


:O :-) [--) :D


Oh man!!!!!!!! I'm 15 million miles away living in the states!! You guys are toooooo lucky!! Have fun and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE show lots of pics if able!!



This was so fun to see and read about. You all are so creatived! I love the patchwork sheep. So wish I could be there.

Jeanine (in MI)


Sounds fab! Love the patchwork sheep. My husband calls sheep "Mini wool factories"...harsh, but true! x


Absolutely awesome!!!! :D xxxx


This soulds brilliant and its not TOO far from Leeds... i'll have to try and find someone to come with me!


Oh I love the sheep too ... !!! Would you mind if I blogged about Yarndale on my little tiny part of the blogging world and use your picture of the postcard ... most will probably have heard but if I could attract one or two more ... I would love to spread the word a little further ... xxx


Such a splendid project Lucy!!! What a nice idea!!! I would love to participate, but living in JK doesn't help....!!!
The sheep is amazing, too!!!
Sometimes is really good to get out from our comfort zone!!!
xxxx Ale


What a lovely little sheep!! Yarndale sounds like a blast, if only I could hop over the pond to get there ;)


It's times like this I wish I lived in England! Hate that I can't be there but that sheep is just too adorable :)

Liz Barnard

Must put Yarndale in my diary, do you think they would like someone who crochets and weaves rugs with un spun yarn?


Woohoo - this sounds wonderful. I think sometimes large fairs sound a bit daunting but I imagine this one will be much more friendly. Looking forward to September! (and I must mention the sheep - genius!)
