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, stay at home Mum with three young children. We live in a 100year old Victorian house in the North of England which we are slowly renovating, and here I spend my days :: mothering, decorating, crocheting, baking, sewing, crafting and gardening. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world. xxxx

Gorgeous as usual Lucy and loving the flowers too!! Relax and enjoy your new project and it will certainly keep you warm!! Happy Christmas to you and your family and thank you for an amazing 2013 xx lots of love Joy xx


Wonderful, Lucy, as usual! Thank you for giving me such inspiration to get back to crochet this year. Your blog is truly amazing. Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy and Crafty New Year! xx


Yay I got it right I thought it's a poncho straight away :) So colourful that will cheer up any grey cold winters day, I have to confess to owning a crocheted poncho retro granny style that my Grandma made, maybe I should dig it out, have a good week.

So cute!!!
What kind of yarn you use?


Can you teach me how to crochet...?! I'm using to learn but just can't fathom it :(


Simply Beautiful!

Amy at love made my home

What a clever idea! Hope that you keep enjoying it. Looking forward to seeing it when it is done, and also what you end up doing with those cute little flowers! xx

Sharon Braxton

Love, love, love it! Clever you!

Ana Reyes

Oh! So you finally are trying Ponchos! Be prepared for you are going to loooove them. I hooked one last winter and I keep asking myself how come I didn't hook one before?... I use them (two) even when I go out... they are so warm and lovely... Yours is going to be absolutely wonderful...

Linda Jones

Love it what a brilliant idea and as usual a true Lucy colorful project xx


What ever will you come up with next?! What a girl!!


Just gorgeous as usual Lucy, fantastic use of colour. Pop over and visit me, today I post about a crocheted mini heart garland that I have over the fireplace and also knitted mini stocking garland for another fireplace. You are all most welocme x http://eclectichomelife.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/third-advent-in-christmas-crafting-part.html


It's beautiful, Lucy! I've had my eye on making a poncho for the longest time but I haven't as yet. It seems I'm always making things for other people (which I love doing) but maybe it's time for something decadent for myself. :)Merry Christmas to you and your family, Lucy

Did think that Lucy, when I saw the deep V! Looks great, colours beautiful. Love the stitches, one row looks like going through the stem of the treble?

Have to report, I found a corduroy coat, same style as your now red one, probably same colour as yours was before. Feel a GREEN or PURPLE coming on, and have a purple dye already. Best of all, it was £4.00 from animal shelter charity shop! Wooohoooo!

Lucy the other thing you could have made is a skirt in the same pattern!


L♥VE it!! :) xxx


What a great idea. I can't wait to see more. The colors are beautiful, too.

I knew it was a poncho! I had one as a girl and loved it. :) So what are the odds you might write up the how-tos? That right angled corner looks a wee bit tricjy, and I think I don't recognize the stitch. I know some of your hooky projects are just dreamt up, so maybe you can just steer us to the pattern that inspired you? I'm sure it will bring you much snuggliness for days to come!


Tis beautiful, as are all the colorful things you make Lucy. <3

I'm just curious... when you say BIG I'm picturing sitting on the couch in a puddle of delicious blanket... though I never sit without my hooks... so my question is, are you going to add in sleeves or slits for slipping your arms out to work? Or is my imagination running away with me? :)


Great idea Lucy it seems that poncho's are definitely in at the moment, I nearly bought a pygama type one today in Matalan but this is such a better alternative, a great stash buster too:)


How terrible to have such a huge leftover stash. Such good fortune that you have a Plan. I can completely identify with the excitement at the start of a project. Can't wait to see how it progresses, I love ponchos and shawls and things for draping about oneself. The little flowers are so pretty, no doubt that will be gorgeous too. Hope you have a good week Lucy.


Oh wow - it looks so snuggly already. I love new crochet projects - I have to force myself to weave in the ends of the old projects before starting new fresh ones with beautiful new yarn!

Paula Dunne

Wonderful colours! Love the flowers too!

Thomasina Tittlemouse

Oh how yummy, Lucy! What a fantastic winter project! I wondered if you might post about its beginnings and show a peep of poncho loveliness and you have! I've been looking longingly at Angie's ponchos on Le Monde de Sucrette over the last year and toyed with making an adult version of her lovely children's ones. This may just push dreamy notion into yarny reality! Please do post your method - your patterns are the best! Like you I seem t have a bit of a blanket yarn surplus leftover from assorted projects. - here is its destiny! E xx


Oh it's so lovely! And the sound of Baby Cashmerino is heavenly! I'm sure when it's done it will be like slipping into a poncho of wonderfully colourful butter!

Hooray for the numbers working out and can't wait to see more of this!
