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

What an utterly lovely post. The sun shone in Leeds today too, and the back door was open all day long and it was glorious. xx


He fizzes with energy because his power was up!


It sure is lovely there! Here it's yucky and cloudy (needs to rain and get it over with). I didn't know you had lil piggies! We have one name is Smores :) Very jealous of your yarn collection lol I showed my fiancee and he goes "yours is just as big" and I told him, "No, No, I love the colors she has, not how much!"


Lovely sunny post, & a most gorgeous jug - I want one!


I have a bit of a china addiction and you have just fed it- oh dear, I'm a lost woman...need to find some Ken!

What a lovely day you've had - me too! Booking Yarndale helped!!
I remember the days when my son wrapped everything in string or Sellotape and the house was full of "inventions"! Now his energy is directed towards sports.
Very pretty guinea pigs - I love how they "talk" to you :)
The light has been fantastic today. Some warm sun has changed the garden in the last few days, and we had a stunning sunset tonight too. I've even loaded the photos to my blog - it was too beautfiul not to share straight away.
Hoping for more of the same weather for the Bank Holiday. x

Tulip tip - pop a pin through the neck of the tulip about 1 inch down (it lets the air out) take the pin out though!!
If little one likes sticky tape introduce him to my son's fav masking tape. Love your pots and work.


how is the Paris yarn to work with? It 'looks' like it would separate easily? yes? no?

Aud Olstad

I know this yarn very well, have been knitting a lot of potholders, kitchen towels and wash cloths both for kitchen and bathroom. It is very good and soft yarn, and it is drying very fast.

Drops Paris is my favourite yarn so far! I use a 4mm hook for it, which is great for tighter pieces of crochet. It can be a little splitty at times, but like you I fell in love with the wonderful range of colours. I am surprised you have not used it before since it is so similar to Rico creative cotton (I have found that RCC is just a little thinner, but they work great together). Thank you for sharing another set of lovely pictures :).

Have visited the Janet Bell Gallery on more than a few occasions as i holiday in Anglesey every year. Beaumaris is the most beautiful town and im now even more excited about my holly bobs in July, quite fancy something from there for myself. :)))
A very cheery sunshiny post, the sun can do amazing thing hey xxxxxxxx

I'm intrigued by the little hen beside your jug. Did you make it?


Wonderful post as always, I adore your new Ken jug, and all that lovely yarn too, what more could you need. I've been making Strawberries this week, hint of summer on the way. :)


I am sitting up in bed in Sydney on a beautiful Autumn morning, reading your wonderful posts, you make my day every time. Thank you. You also make me very home sick. I have to save my pennies for another trip home.


What a lovely, lazy, colorful read through your day. I had just stopped for a breather myself and it was a refresher to my soul and spirits. Hugs to you, Lucy.


How lovely!
Amd Drops Paris is my favourite, I use no other yarn. :)


I LOVE Drops yarn - super quality and such a choice of colours, yarns and weights. I just adore the super fine alpaca and their lace weight is my first choice for frothy snoods and scarfs. Your studio is looking wonderful - the sunshine is amazing isn't it? Hope it lasts for the weekend.


Wit woo love ken and the tulips : ) Hope the sunshine lasts its just lovely to go and potter in the garden x

I see little B has your eye for color.Hope it's a warm weekend your way!

I love seeing balls of yarn in all colours side by side like that.Makes my heart sing!
Your tulips are beautiful too.

My son loved string too.when he was about 6 we put a ball of string and a retractable tape measure in his Xmas stocking, he loved them and was most impressed that Father Christmas had bought him 'just what I always wanted'

Bari Jo

Such a fun post - glad you are having a great day! Loved the jug and the pics of your walk and the heart? Priceless!


thank you so much for making me know the yarns from Drops Design! Stunning!

Had to laugh about the cellotape, my little man, 5, goes through ours like water, thankfully at the moment he is having a string break. He also loves to concoct things, mix lots of things together and see what he gets, at the moment it is my perfumes and product samples.
Bought some absolutely wonderful fabric the other week, it is brightly coloured caravans on a blue sky background, so yummy, made into Pj pants for my little man now.
Hugs Audra
