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 adorable. I'm starting my own blanket with these squares and it is coming along beautifully. I definitely recommend it to anyone who is wanting to do a quick and easy project.

julie

hopefully you will see this! I have a question. I love this idea but I would love to know how you put them together!! did you use a yarn needle or did you crochet them together? I'm have trouble figuring out how to get it put together!

thanks!

Hi Lucy! Thank you for those lovely squares. My aunt is going back to knitting and this is the perfect project to begin with. God bless you!

Katie

Thanks so much for the hours of enjoyment you've given me and for the excitement I find building in me until I once more can get back to your site to see what new and creative ideas I can explore, next.
I've read about Artisan bread that looked so delicious, I was salivating and I can't wait to try to these little granny squares. Never thought of connecting them.
Your site makes me happy just looking at it.
I've started my May wreath, which gave me nothing but happy thoughts and a warm feeling that brings me back to my childhood.
I love a cozy home. I find the blogs you list so interesting.
You just get my creative juices going and I feel thrilled to be alive.
I think I might be rambling but I just felt I had an obligation to let you know that I have just been delighted that I found you!

My nieces are getting doll blankets for Christmas and this is the perfect pattern to do. Thanks again for writing it out for all of us. :)

Louise

I love these little squares and I will use lots of them in future projects.

I just wonder, how do you crochet the border that you have surrounded the squares please.

Take care and I wish you lots of lovely crocheting time. Blessed Be.

By the way, I am also from North England too :-)

Hi Lucy
I've just seen your little blue bowl, it's really lovely, I also love charity shop rummages and would just have to buy that blue bowl.
Looks like your a Cappuccino girl as well, I have about 4 sachets a day!
Well, we need them to keep us warm!

I'm a beginner to crochet and avidly follow your blog! One thing that I am not well versed in yet is yarn and hook selection. I am hoping to make these delightful little squares. I am wondering if there is a type of yarn (acrylic, cotton, wool, or blend) that you typically work in? As well as what size hook do you use? Until I hone my own talent I will need to replicate others to understand the craft....
Best,

You use such bright and happy colors. These little blankets would comfort any little girl and her dolly.

As always love the colours!!

I love your blog so much and spend LOTS of time looking through it. I would like to make a summer garden granny square throw, but as I am quite new to crochet, I have some questions. How do you hide the tails of your yarn? I have searched youtube and seen many methods which only made me quite confused about what to do, so.... I thought I would ask you, the expert, (whose work I love)! I know that you tie a knot to add a new color, right? do you then go back later and weave the ends in? With a yarn needle? Thank you so much for your time! .... My dream is to come to a crochet retreat like you had last summer!!

Emily

I love your little granny squares for use in a doll afghan. Great job for Charity. I am wondering if you'd tell me what the name of the afghan pattern of the afghan that is on the arm of your chair under the bowl of tiny squares in the pictures? I love all your work. Thanks

Emily

I am a beginning crocheter,and you are an inspiration to me. Thank you for your wonderful craftsmenship, words and photos! I'll keep up with your posts!

nikki

Pretty bowl and such a bargain - our charity shop prices down south are quite exorbitant in comparison!And your teeny tiny squares- lovely!
