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

Absolutely gorgeously lovely! I've just bought a load of Lucy-colours in preparation for my next blanket and I've decided that perhaps if I give up sleep I'll have it done before next Christmas. I am the slowest crocheter in the history of the world! Mind you, it's amazing how much crochet I can get done when I have writing to do, so perhaps that'll spur me on...


Yessss..... very pretty-pretty!


It looks great and you're absolutely right about the border - it sets all the other colours off. It's fab! :0)

Another masterpiece. You continue to inspire with your lovely colours and ideas!!


Very pretty! I really like the edging you've chosen too!

Thomasina Tittlemouse

Lucy, it's just beautiful! Full of colour and life! And just the right size for sunny lazy picnics - so hope 2013 will have plenty of days for you all to use it like this. The edging absolutely makes it - you are so right, it calms and holds together all the myriad colours in just the right balance. Are you still thinking of posting the bower bird pattern? A friend and I are dying to make one! Happy Hooky days, Lucy! E xx

Its lovely Lucy, i would love to make one with my spare balls of dk.
The border absolutely finishes the blanket off perfectly.


I love the colours, the border is great, and the blanket itself makes me think about Elmer the Elephant :) I was pointed in the direction of your blog by a friend last year when I announced my intention to learn to crochet - so I would like to take this opportunity to thank you as I picked it up incredibly quickly thanks to your extremely clear instructions, and now, I'm hooked!!


wow! The border worked out great! Absolutely a great stash buster for all those small leftover skeins.

Love, Kirsten


So pretty.
I love the border.


So divine! The border is just right. I'm doing a vertical stripe and was toying about doing a border but now I will - it's a frame for a picture really! So very lovely and cosy. Enjoy it in the years ahead.


Oh, but it is wonderful! I'm loving the brights and lights and darks popping alongside each other. And of course you always have the best borders! I'm thinking maybe I will attempt sometime this year (on a baby size idea!) wouldn't this make a lovely Christmas gift for some little grand or two?!? Wink wink. Thank you, Lucy, for another inspiring share!

ann snell

i love it too! i'm realy new to crochet and i've been crocheting a giant squares granny blanket for nearly a year! its not as colour full as yours though, so i'm going to crochet the flower cushion next as i've found a web site that sells an attic24 yarn pack!


Lovely, lovely, lovely!! such a fun way of using up left-overs :) x


Lovely! I know what you mean about borders - about halfway through a blanket, I start making the main piece on auto-pilot while I plan the border. It's always the best bit to do though, isn't it?

Ana Angelica Clemente

Lovely, perfect for a sunny day at the park!


Another lovely blanket, Lucy and I agree the border is perfect for it. Thanks for inspiring me to do my own and to use colours I don't usually have the courage to use. I finished my cot sized version today. It took about a month to make; three weeks on the blanket, 4 days trying borders I didn't like and a further 4 days doing the border. I can't quite get my head around posting it off to my friend for her new granddaughter... I'll definitely be making another. Thanks again.


oh wow, it came out gorgeous! I love the colours you have chosen.


Your blanket and border is fabulous. Thank you as always for taking the time to write your amazing posts and inspiring us all. X

Holly McLean

I love it and you're right, the border does calm it! I wish I had the perseverance to make that many squares!


Thanks so much for posting your granny square pattern. I've been wondering how you get it to look like that.

Jenny Grant

This is extremely gorgeous Lucy! So inspiring! I love how you use colour, you are like Matisse! A colour master! I recently bought a pile of mid tone blue yarns with one singing gold, was thinking of solid squares, now I'm decided! Mine will be knitted though, probably mitred garter stitch squares.....
Really fabulous work as always Lucy!

Truly Myrtle

It's fabulous! It reminds me of a painters palate ready for painting :)

Jacqui Jeffries

Thanks for the spot on border what an interesting effect it gives to the blanket. I'm always making granny squares in between my other knitting and crochet projects using the left over yarn as I go. I have rather a large selection of squares that will eventually become a blanket or a cushion. I'll have to see where the colours direct me x
