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

I know how to join Granny Squares together as you go , thanks to Lucy. Does anyone out there know of an easy method to join other squares as you go. By that I mean squares where the last round is in treble stitch. Best wishes to everyone. Sheila D Leader

Lucy did you ever have a chance to post a tutorial about your Spot-On Edging? I would love to try it but haven't been able to find it on your site.
Thanks for your generosity with sharing so much of what you do: you're a real inspiration!

Could you do a double crochet instead of a triple crochet?


So beautiful and inspiring


I'm working on this design also.
I've made 50 squares so fun. Thanks for the inspiring photos.

Love it! Thanks Lucy. My Scottish grannie taught me to crochet when I was a girl. I am a grannie myself now and working on my first blanket. I think I am in a love/hate relationship with it. Some days I love it - some not so much! Anyway, you have inspired me to carry one - your work is beautiful - when I finish this I want to try a patchworks for my grandsons.
Thank you


Wow! I love it! I was just going to comment how much it reminds me of Elmer the Patchwork Elephant, but I see you've made the same connection!


Love the blanket Lucy, you have inspired me to learn to crochet. I'm going to buy the stylecraft wool, will I just need one ball of each colour? I live in Melbourne so will be buying online...........much cheaper than buying the wool here!!
Thanks again for the inspiration!!


Hi Lucy! i've just finished a huge patch blanket and would LOVE this tutorial to finish off the border - just incase you thought we might have forgotten about it, hehe, I'm waiting ever so patiently! ;)


That is the most beautiful blanket I have ever seen.


Love this so much I've started my own one. Im making it so big that I can fit my whole family under it so it may take a while.
Would love to do the spot on border also.


Simply beautiful.


Oh my goodness!!! It is simply fantastic!!!!!!


it's fabulous! especially the border is just perfect for the great result.


I absolutely love your 'TA-DA' moments! This blanket is beautiful and I'm sure it will spend many happy years going on holiday with you all and keep your loved ones snug :-)
Lovely border-that edging is so cool!


I think the border finishes off this blanket beautifully. I'm sure you will. All enjoy its cheerful colours.


gorgeous! i love the border, and I found myself relaxing my eyes and just getting lost in the colours. Would be the quintessential picnic blanket for a dry, but grey day!


Stunningly beautiful blanket. Such happy colours. Love it!

can you please tell me how you did the join as you go method with so many different colors and not have a contrasting thread to show thru ?
I will check back if you get to leave an answer.


That is just fabulous - I love it! *Wonders off to look at wool thoughtfully...*


I have to ask and I think you may be bombarded with this question a lot -- but I've noticed that your afghan borders are always really straight. Do you always block your work right after you are done with your work?


Lovely blanket, I am going to give crochet a go what size hook do you use with your yarn love your blog it is always bright and cheery best wishes ginny


Your blanket looks great! I was just thinking it reminded me of Elmer the elephant and there he is!
