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

Really enjoying reading your blog, eagerly awaiting the next one also the next issue of Simply Crochet - Judy x


Hello Lucy!
My name is Elsa, I'm 14 and my best friend and I both love your blog very much. Thank you for doing what you do! All your free patterns and tutorials have helped us so much and if we're ever stuck for how to do something or what to next, we just say "look on Attic24!"
I've been looking everywhere for a Simply Crochet magazine (newsagents, sainsburys, even WHSmith doesn't seem to have it when I'm there) to read your column so hopefully I'll find one soon!
Lots of love xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Fiona Marchant

Lovely blog...lovely column. I really enjoyed it. Keep up yhe good work x

Ann Snell

what about mini pom poms for your poncho? love the buttons in you picture. i still have'nt made the bread yet as i'm spending most of my free time making an afghan!


lovely post Lucy and well done on becoming more organised .... well done on the bread making, well done on the new blog for The Studio, well done on keeping the table tidy, well done on Simply Crochet and just well done on everything. I am already thinking Yarndale too! Oh no here we go again ...... CAN'T WAIT!! xx lots of love Joy xx


Lovely post Lucy, so with you on the tassels. I'm sure they have true purpose in life somewhere just not on ponchos or scarves or blankets ! Love the idea of tiny pom poms though.

I loved the article, congratulations :-) You are such an inspiration in so many ways-I always turn to your blog when I need help with my crochet or for ideas or to use one of your many amazing tutorials! <3

Steph Clarey

I quickly wanted to say just how delighted I am for you to be doing the Simply Crochet work too. You really do have what looks like a lovely work - life mix going on. Also how excited am I already that there will be another Yarndale! Yippee. Date on diary immediately!


Good stuff Luce.
My crochet class continues and I was asked on Monday by a new recruit how I managed to learn after so many failed attempts and I said, 'Attic24'.
I've also adopted your bread recipe/have a jug of tulips/a houseful of pompoms - I wonder why that is?!!I'm going to make an effort to steer myself towards Yarndale this year.


I love when you take me on a walk through your village, and then we return for a chat in your cozy home. The bread looks delicious!
Enjoy your day!


Looking forward to seeing the finished poncho, how about an edging of little tiny crocheted fallen leaves hanging down?!

Angela-Southern USA

How exciting, and busy, good for you Lucy! I've lost count of the loaves I've made from that recipe recently, lol, I've gave a lot away. The girls and I have turkey paninis with it last night. Love slow cooker meals, I'm the same, don't use it near enough. Look forward to the ponchos Ta Dah moment. Maybe some crochet pom poms like these. http://onceuponapinkmoon.blogspot.com/2013/09/pom-pom-edge.html So happy for you that you're in print now, well deserved too. :))

Lovely pictures of your town. I made the bread and it was so delicious. Next time I'm trying one of your suggested add-ins!

Jennifer Crewe

I love to walk through your village and see it through your eyes. Nothing like it in my part of the world. Australia is a pretty new country!! Love your photos and all the help I receive from you for my crocheting. I tried to make your bread recipe, well the main recipe that you linked to and I have had dismal failure and this from a"forgiving recipe". I just don't have a pot the right size so I tried to half the recipe. Don't know if that is the problem but it sure didn't come out right. Easier in the long run just to buy some bread at the supermarket.

Happy hooking for West Australia.

Linda Kwong

Tried the bread - turned out beautifully. Thank you so much. Love reading your blog.

I wonder if I will make it Yarndale this year? It would be lovely to think that I would! Good luck with all of your work. xx


What a treat to be a small bean snuggled in all those gorgeous colourful blankets x

Winwick Mum

Wow, look at that sky! January is a good month to start and re-start routines, isn't it? I have revitalised a few and started some new ones too and I'm really enjoying them which should help them to stick around! xx


Could it be pom-poms? - that's my latest thing - I've just knit a lovely teal coloured scarf and I'm thinking of pom-poms to finish the ends!! of course not in teal but in bright orange - well - it'll go with my jacket!!


It all sounds beautifully organised chez you Lucy, as well as busy. How nice to spend your afternoons with your littlest boy. Mine is at school now, and I do miss him so. I really like that you've made something Real for your poster, it's what I'd do too.

Angel Jem

A fringe edging, just a 10 chain and stitched over all the way along. You know what I mean. Fringes give you something to plait on long journeys.

Angela @Little Apple Tree

You always have such gorgeous yarn! I'm going to have to have a better look in my LYS to see if I can find it. The texture and colours are just lovely.

I know what you mean about a place just feeling 'right' for you...the city I live in has become my new home town. It's just right for me.


I really enjoyed your column in Simply Crochet too :) And your poncho is lovely!


You are such an inspiration to me! I check in to your blog everyday. Oh and I also made the bread! Yummy! I will make that bread a few times per week for sure!

I dragged my husband to Yarndale last year and I was suprised how much he enjoyed it. Also he loves the town. Couldn't believe it when he just turned to me and said [ he knew I was on your blog] " Any news of Yarndale yet? " Looks like we will be coming again this year. This time though I'll bring some food. We had a lovely meal at the church but had to sit in the yard, they were so busy! Everywhere was. Probably could do with a few more food stalls and extra toilets at the venue.
