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'm so happy for you, Lucy! I'd be bereft if I couldn't knit for that long, so I can sympathise - I'm looking forward to seeing all your wonderful hookiness in your pictures again xx


Yeah! Pain free crocheting! So happy for you!
Looking forward to the rest of the photos!


Lucy, so glad to see you are back to normal !!!
Happy summer xxx


lovely to have you back crocheting and pain free .... can't wait to see your Yarndale yarn bombing ...... so excited and in 56 days I will be there ........ whhhhhhhhhoooooooopppppppppppppppeeeeeeeee .... happy days xx Joy xx


OH believe me, I completely understand your joy :D I had crochet & knitting RSI after Christmas, I thought I might have done permanent damage & I was distraught!! I'm much better now & I try to take it easy.

Interestingly my Dad had one of these gangolin things (he called in Gary) and it just went away! Came back once & then never again. At least if it does you can go to your GP and see what they can do :)

All the best

I'm so glad your finger is better! I've had tendinitis in both wrists and tennis elbow and it can be soooo painful. Acupuncture helped...


Excellent news! Super fab! See you at Yarndale xxx


I'm so glad you are back to full working order and in time for Yarndale. Looking forward to seeing the yarnbombing project in all its glory! x


So happy for your finger! could the sore finger be caused by the ganglion? I had one once, back of the hand/wrist and the pain went up my arm , I wondered if it was resting on a nerve.

Lovely lovely post as ever x


Oh Lucy, I am so thrilled for you!! I knew that you had to be down about it when it happened because it happened to me. I love seeing your happy face and knowing all is well. I too recovered after a long rest and am happily knitting and crocheting again! I go a bit slower now..I don't want to chance it happening again!
Love your rainbow hooky, I so wish I could be there to see it all in person.
I am looking forward to all your pictures, so glad you had such a wonderful time!


Shhh Lucy don't tell every one about Arnside its my favourite get away place ( going there this weekend :) if every body goes we might not get into are special caravan park :(
Really glad that your back to your old self and enjoying your hooky ... I'm looking forward to Yarndale and hopefully might even get to say hello to you
Take care and don't over do things


So glad to see you're back to hooky heaven!!
And that you had a lovely holiday - looks great, can't wait to see more piccies. What camera do you use?
I had ganglions (I don't know if it's the same) on both wrists as a child and still have occasional twinges.


Yay! So happy for you! I have carpal tunnel syndrome and was going to get surgery for it when everybody in the family seemed to decide they needed emergency room visits for one reason or another. Quite wiped out the pocketbook, lol. My need to knit and crochet has been growing steadily the last couple years, along with the discomfort, ugh. MUST get surgery!! Anyway, so looking forward to more of your beautiful projects!! I also love your coffee mugs! I have been unable to explain to my patient family why I get so happy over a sweet, pretty mug and especially why I "need" more than one.


So happy seeing you gleaming! It's awful not beeing able to do things you love to do. Best wishes from York!!! (Have you received my email?)


So lovely to see your happiness and to see you creating again without pain. Looking forward to seeing your Yarndale Bombing plans.


Awww, so happy you had some pain free hooking. That is good news indeed. And what a happy piece indeed. Very cute photo ~ yes, you really do look pleased;) thanks for this share!

Nothing more to be said. X


A rainbow seems so apt for a recovery and fabulous sunny weather helps soooooo much. Great to see you back in action x


You do look very happy. I'm so glad you're back in the hooky saddle now. :)

Hooray! I am so happy for you! I have been crocheting today (I am slow,lol) and am so excited with my progress...3.5 rows so far today on my queen sized bed blanket. It is going to take a long time!


Hooray! back to full speed crochet! So pleased for you to be able to do something that you enjoy so much
I also had a family youth hostel holiday in Arnside when I was younger, I don't remember it being quite as perfect though, but I was probably in the middle of being an unpleasant teenager and not enjoying where I was

Dorothy Hermes

Oh, so very happy you can get back to your hooky projects. Life just isn't the same without a crochet hook & yarn.


number one, you've lost some weight over summer - go you! (not that you were ever overweight, but my oh my you're looking trim)
number two - when you grow out of your shirt can you please hand-me-down it to me? thanks

Teresa Kasner

Wooohooo.. I'm so glad your hand is better! I can't imagine not being able to craft for 2 months! I'm glad you got to have a short vacation.. you deserve it! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


So glad your finger is finally back in action! Love that rainbow, I hope we'll get to see it when it has been used to 'yarn bomb' something.
