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.

Oh Lucy it's a beauty, love the pic of it rippling down the steps. Such perfect colours
Clare xx


Love it!!!The colours are gorgeous-very seaside-y!


So excited to see this, can't wait to but the pack and get started, beautiful pictures and a wonderful place to take them (we go every year :) ) Lou

It's absolutely gorgeous Lucy. I really want to make one for our caravan Myvanwy, but in shades of blue & a red accent to match the curtains & cushion covers I've made.


I've been following for a while but this my first comment, and I just had to say how much I love your blanket! The colours are perfect and the ripples so soothing. I have a strong urge to make myself a spring time one with spring greens, daffodil yellows and crocus purple.
Hmm,off on a yarn hunt!


I think attic24 postcards / greetings cards would definitely sell! Great photo by Little Lady.

And I think this is my favourite of your blanket stories, maybe because it is so 'you'. xx


Just ordered. So excited. Thanks for putting this project all together.

Wow! So beautiful! I live in Dorset and so love the colours, the seasons and the sea and this story of a ripple blanket is just GORGEOUS!!!!!!!


This has to be one of your best posts yet! Ohh that blanket just makes my heart happy.That blanket is out of a dream, and yes,the photo with the pebble on top needs to be a postcard or on a blank notecard. If you hadn't called it your Coast Blanket, you would have had to have called it the Dorset Blanket. It completes you. (And how darling are you in the pic Little Lady snapped!)♡


Thanks Lucy, just ordered my pack and can't wait for it to arrive! Have been looking at your blog all day waiting for the post and so glad I got a pack. Love anything coastal and not good choosing colours myself so it's great that you have done it for us.


I have just loved reading this post so much!! I think I feel just as much love for your blanket as you do, I just can't get over how the colours of the blanket are so perfectly matched to the Devon coastline. It's my birthday in a couple of weeks so I'm going to put a coast pack on the top of my list :) I've also decided that one day I shall take my finished coast blanket all the way down from Cheshire to Devon, and take in the beautiful scenery with my blanket wrapped around me :))
Thank you so much for all your time and effort yet again, in making other people so very happy x


I'm already up to my ears in yarn for ripples and granny stripes, but I can't resist! It's a gorgeous colour scheme. I would have to say that my true soul colours are autumnal colours but I, too, grew up on the coast and your blanket really does conjure up sun, sea, sand and blue skies and with the added bonus of no winter gales or grey days :)

Thank you for sharing you Coast Ripple blanket journey. I love all the photos and you really have captured the seaside in your blanket. Tell Little Lady I love her fish as well. I think it would make a nice postcard too.

Teresa Kasner

Lucy, I so enjoyed each and every photo of your Coast blanket! What fun to see you with your lovely blankie in front of the very ocean and sand that inspired it! Very inspirational. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Hello Lucy !
It's a very very pleasant plaid.
I love it so much.
Congratulations of France

Beautiful colours in the ripple and lovely photos. My favourite too is the one on the steps. What an awful lot of work must go into designing the randomness.
Since persevering with learning how to crochet, I am now addicted. I agree, the Stylecraft DK is lovely and I am on to my third small throw with it, but I would love to try something in a more luxurious yarn.

Rachel Thurlby

You really, really have captured the Dorset coast so well! Here in land-locked Leicestershire I yearn for those hills, skies and beaches and the thought of being able to wrap myself up in them is too irresistible! Thank you Lucy for bringing us all such simple happiness x


des réalisations toujours aussi magnifiques !!! j'adore !
Anne from France !


...anyone else humming the "Coast" theme tune?


Brilliant!! :) Brilliant!!! :) :) Brilliant!!! :) :) :)


Thank you very much for inspiring all of us with your beautiful projects!

Janet Tweedie

I have been waiting so long for this!!! Thank you soooo much for sharing your gift with us! This one is unbelievably gorgeous!! I have always felt "drawn" to the sea, so this particular colour scheme is quite soothing to me - I will definitely have to start one soon! xxx

What an enjoyable read and I love the coast blanket. I'm just halfway through an "attic 24 granny blanket" at the mo, which I'm loving, but can't wait to finish it now so I can do a ripple!


Hello Lucy,

it is a very pretty blanket! I am also currently working on a ripples blanket with blue, green and beige colours (not Stylecraft), all leftovers.
Ripples are fun! :-)
