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

It looks like you had the absolute perfect snow day making the most of exploring outside and cosying up indoors. Did I spot some very exciting wellies? They look very cool and hookie like! x


Oooh lovely. So much glorious colour to come home to, after the monochrome outside! Also, I love how I spot your update link on Facebook and can be here in seconds :-D I was longing for a new post from you!

Thank you Lucy for the update, I have been waiting for a week, reading your blog and your page on Facebook and here it is! I love the things you do but I am still waiting for the French bower bird in your tutorials!? <3!


I think we have all had extra knotty time the last few days, although our snow day was Friday and back to normalish today :( It is surprising how much cake I have made and we've consumed too, it tastes extra good after brisk cold walks :) I think I am going to be back with my Stylecraft after this blanket, although lovely there is no way I can carry on crocheting all that I want to with merino! i really love Stylecraft!

The same up here in Newcastle Lucy! Heaps and heaps of snow although it is rather sadly turning to smoosh :( anyhoo I've been following your blog for a few years now and I just wanted to let you know how much I love all your crochet shenanigans! I am working up the courage to sit and make a Big Blanket but I'm too fussy with colour! Looking forwards to the wooly goodness you will be bringing to our attention this year :D xxx


I'm making a cot sized version of this blanket and although I have a couple ideas, I'm looking forward to seeing YOUR border. Envious of your snow day. Lots of snow but my school resolutely remains open.


LOL at the Onesies, we have an invasion of those in our house too. The most coveted ones are those with built-in feet AND a hood....

Looking forward to seeing the new colour combos!


Lovely winter you have. Here it`s only cold and no snow. Looking forward to seeing the blanket completed


Same in Lincolnshire, lots of monochrome but the trees look so beautiful with their own blankets. I'm now going to get lots of colour out of my bag and carry on with a blanket...and keep warm! Take care. Chel

I always enjoy seeing your photographs of your lovely country-side. Would you call your town a village? Or is it larger? I also love your colorful yarns even when they haven't yet been made into lovely designs. I recently saw a knitted tea cozy in a catalog and wondered if you knitted any for yourself.


ooooh intrigued to see these new colour collections.
Just bought one of your colour collections from Deramores and can't wait to start on a nice big blanket with it.


It looks like the whole of Europe is covered in snow at the moment :) True winter moments! Just tonight I decided I would get my yarns out of their boxes and just it them like that in my open closet. So I kinda have my own little stylecraft store just at home :)

Just love Little Brother's knobbly bobbly skin condition - hope he recovers before he melts - really made me smile :D


It's been perfect snow this year too - hasn't it? Even though our brood have left home, I've been throwing snowballs for the collies! Super yarn colours - I'm working on a vibrant, colourful blanket at the moment - I've called it Carnival!

I just love the way being out and playing in the snow makes you feel so exhilerated. Looks like so much fun! Your new blanket is looking so pretty..I just adore all those colors! If I had that yarn shop near me...I would get myself in to soooo much trouble!!BUT I WOULDN'T CARE :)
Have a warm and cozy evening, penny x


Love all the pictures of the snow.


love the snow! nothing like finishing up a large blanket :) mines getting closer..

I was just visiting my neighbor who had the weather channel on, and we saw all the snow all over Europe - enjoy! It just began to snow here in Connecticut.
I'm glad your little guy likes the snow now!


Ooh Lucy, that yarn looks so beatifully displayed in your wool shop. My local wool shop have Stylecraft Special thrown in a basket outside the front of the shop, nevertheless I'm chuffed to see that the colours I selected from the heap of randomness are all in the 2nd from left on the bottom shelf of that display. They are slowly turning into a ripple blanket, your pattern of course. I too think it feels lovely and soft and really warm when I'm under it wilst hooking.


Ah....the perfect day!!
It has been snowing all day here in the Netherlands too...my daughter is just a little to young to enjoy it...also there was very heavy wind so it didn't feel attractive to go outside at all! But I enjoyed from inside!!


Oh and that lemon drizzle cake is tops I'm actually making some today!


If there's anything more huggable than a child in a fuzzy Onesie, I can't think of it! Those days are long gone here, but I have lots of warm memories of snuggly kids in their jammies.


Your blankets and roaring fire looked so lovely and inviting to come home to after your day in the snow, bliss. xx


Amazing for London snow lasting more than a day love it :) feels like Christmas again :) I so want your yarn stash its amazing like my local shop :) x


do you provide b+b, I want to live in your house :O) that open fire, crochetted blankets, lemon cake...
