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

Looks like bliss, especially the back yard and the Yarndale sign. Happy days.


Very nice!!

Winwick Mum

Lovely! It's been cold here too, but I absolutely refuse to agree with the weather forecaster who called it "autumnal". It's not autumn in August! xx


We are enjoying a final slice of summer at Sennen Cove in Cornwall in our caravan. We are very lucky. The weather has been glorious here today and the coastal ambience has made me very excited about the coastal blanket ta dah to come. As an experienced knitter of many years I have always been disappointed with my seemingly very amateurish efforts at crochet but am persevering and have managed 7 stripes of your granny stripe blanket. I am hoping to tackle the ripple next and like you love the coast, (Cornwall being our favourite haunt,) so am feeling inspired.
Can't wait. Thank you for being an inspiration.


I was passing through Skipton yesterday and treated myself to a delicious coffee and scone in Coopers. How lucky you are to share your workspace with those lovely ladies and tempting snacks !

Those are all wonderful pleasures for sure! How do you peg out the laundry around the vine? lol I remember the days of kids re-arranging the furniture to play, fond memories. We've had a day of rain here too, long overdue (a very dry summer) but still hot. I look forward to seeing the ripple ta-dah.


These little pleasures are the stuff a happy life is made of aren't they. I always like to look at the sky from our top room when I take the laundry up there as well. There have been some really stunning skies lately. Your garden is looking beautiful, so green and inviting. Enjoy the rest of the week Lucy. CJ xx

Thank you for sharing your lovely new things with us :) it always feels like such a treat to join in with the little things that make you happy. Your blog and your beautiful home bring me a lot of joy and inspiration, thank you Lucy xx

Can't wait for your Ripple blanket ta dah! Feeling v lucky to have seen it in real life - so gorgeous. Your knit and natter sounds such fun :-) The Yarndale banner is fab and I'm looking forward to seeing it in situ in lovely Skipton. By the way I was happy to hear that you're leaving your garden wall "au natural" and growing some pretty plants to climb up it :-) Love Jo xxx

Oh and I forgot to say thank you for sharing your beautiful photos of the sky over Skipton, especially the rainbow! I'm a keen cloud watcher ! Jo xxx


Rainbow! I haven't seen one in so long. Those stormy skies look eerily gorgeous, though. I'm kind of enjoying the chilly summer myself! :)


This how summer holidays should be 😊 your friday yarn and coffee meetings look great, i am slightly jealous!
You blankets fit really nicely into your house! Love what the kids did with them. I will take my rainbow blanket to work with me today... the building is freezi g cold.

Tale care Anne


A gorgeous happy and colourful post Lucy, thank you for sharing.

No more hanging out the washing, me thinks. The knit and natter is brillant, they taught my kids finger knitting and my youngest sewing. It's such a joy to be going, even though with kids around don't get much done. It's such a joy reading the attic 24.


I'm going to buy myself some new soap too, today. Funny how this little things can make us happy! :)


Having nice soap is a such a simple luxury.

sorting out my late mothers belongings. She was always trying out new crafts but really expert at knitting and sewing - even made my dads jackets! I have found several pieces of embroidery that I had not seen before besides all the framed ones. It is so good to be able to celebrate - albeit very quietly - her creativity, in the midst of the sadness.
So thank you Lucy for reminding me to look at the sunshine, to enjoy my own making and all the pleasures of family and friends. and Facebook too!!

Hi Lucy,

Just to say that I have not just shelved the Watermelon idea 😀 We are caring for it in our polytunnel and will deliver it as and when we get to Saltaire.
I have Multiple Sclerosis and the Summer has not been such a good one for me.

Loving the delights of your posts, as always, and our granddaughter reaches for our iPad as soon as she arrives here to check out 'Your lovely friend at ATTIC24'! Her favourite description of you and your posts, ideas and photos is 'She/that/they are grand!' Children are fabulous aren't they?
She is learning to crochet and is progressing at a far faster rate than I am ... My hands have reduced sensation due to my MS and don't move as fast as or where I want them to. Extremely frustrating!

I'll message you when we are coming up ... if we can manage it, we would love to have a break in the area, so will see how I am.

Thanks for the delights of all you do,

Big love

Hello Lucy,

Lovely to see you enjoying all 'the little things', how lovely they are! Loving the dramatic cloud photos. The Yarndale sign is great!!! Shame that summer is almost gone, but nice to see your holiday treasures! Looking forward to seeing your new blanket!!!
I made a superfast crochet cowl, take a look! :)
Enjoy your day!

Little pleasures!!! They are the backbone of happiness!!!! They are different to all of us but at the same time the are also the same!!!! Love your little pleasures!!!! I am also an avid sky glazer!!! Have a fantastic week!!!

I agree with you, Lucy, that it is sometimes the smallest things that give us the greatest pleasure. I love the remnants of your holiday at the bottom of your yarn bag, your yarndale banner and your new crocs. And I love that your children made vans out of the blankets - imaginative and creative like their mom! Have a wonderful day. Susan

Anne Dearle

Lucy, love your posts. You seem to make time to smell the roses and enjoy the little things in life. Are you able to tell us the colours you have used in your seaside ripple. I think I have several of the colours but would need to top up on those I haven't got rather than buying the pack this time. Your help would be appreciated.
