I have followed you for several of those nine years and I love everything you have shared. You are generous with your crochet tutorials and knowledge but you are also generous with your feelings and your life and I really appreciate that. Thank you!

Catherine Pritchard

Congratulations on your blog's anniversary. Your photos, musings and tutorials bring a lot of joy to us all. Life would be a lot poorer without a peep into the Attic every now and again.

Sue

Very happy anniversary!! I have enjoyed your blog for several years, your joy for life, love of colour and your wooly creations got me thru many hours of a very boring job I used to do!! Nothing like a shot of the Attic to keep you going.

Sophie

Congratulations! I have only found your blog fairly recently but I hope to continue to enjoy your posts for a long time <3

I found your blog whilst living in a (cold, damp, squashed!) mobile home with 2 small children and a very stressed husband, as we tried to renovate an old, damp, crumbling house, whilst vainly trying to reassure ourselves that we hadn't bitten off more than we could chew... After the kids were in bed and desperate for a bit of solitude and escapism, and needing desperately to make something (my sewing machine was in storage), I would lock myself away in the 'bedroom' (read 6" bigger all round than a small double mattress) and go online and try to teach myself how to crochet. Which is how I found the Attic, and all your wonderful, light filled, colour charged, woolly delights. Not to mention cake and flowers... I really needed all that positivity at the time and my gratitude at learning how to crochet and the delight it has brought me since, as well as the pleasure of reading all your posts, is immense - thank you for all that you do Lucy!

Monica

Congratulations & thank you for your great blogs. You are a very generous person sharing your life & wonderful tutorials with us all around the world. Just think how many blankets have been made! I look forward to opening your blog, finding a new post and reading about how you are and what you have been up to. Please keep it up. Love,Monica

Happy Anniversary, I really enjoy your blog 😀

Linda

Happy Anniversary, Lucy. I so enjoy your blogs and and have learned so much from you. I, too, am lucky enough to live in this wonderful county of Yorkshire but you have brought it alive to so many people all over the world. What joy you bring with your patterns and blogs and, perhaps most of all, with your uncanny and very talented ability to mix colours so meaningfully. THANK YOU!

happy blogging!

Congratulations and Happy Blogiversary! Nine years of blogging is quite an accomplishment. I've been a reader for 6 yrs now and can't believe it myself! You have inspired me in so many ways with your love of life, color and flowers. I take more time to appreciate my neighborhood walks and be thankful for all our bright, sunny hot days here in Southern California. I must confess there's many a time I wish we could switch so I could enjoy your grey, cold and moody weather.

I learned to crochet from my Grandmothers when Avocado green, Burnt orange and Goldenrod yellow were THE colors! LOl! In my mind, crochet and those colors were forever linked together until I came across your blog and discovered all your gorgeous color uses. Crochet became new again, not outdated.

I haven't had the chance to meet you, but I hope to one day. You have such a welcoming way of reaching out with your writing! You are like a friend. I have to confess that I think of you especially when I see something Spotty Dotty that is so YOU! Lol!

Here's to many many more happy years of Bloggin!

Congratulations, Lucy! Finding your blog five years ago changed my life in really important ways. I started to appreciate my own life much more when I saw the way you approached yours. I now feel so much more comfortable in my chosen life as a mother, wife and homemaker because I see how valuable this kind of work really is. You make a happy and comfortable home for your family and that is so important. I have enjoyed seeing your family grow up these past few years and I'm looking forward to whatever the future holds for all of you.

Eva Meyer

Thank you, Lucy, for all these years of Inspiration, Colour and sharing your thoughts with us! All the best for the next nine years!

I am pleased to hear that this blog is a creative 'free-ing' priceless space for you. Thank you for your beautiful pictures and colour that really lift my day and moods. If you knew how therapeutic that is when life seems SO grey, that to is priceless. Thank you Lucy. Your colour work inspires and informs my patchwork combinations. Slowly learning.

Hello Lucy, I have been following your blog for several years now and have told many people I know about it who also now follow you. Because of your blog I organised our annual holiday around (and attended) the first Yarndale. I love your writing, your crochet makes (have bought some of your kits and made some of your makes) and I love all of your creativity...I find it very inspiring.
I read with interest about your trips down to the south coast as it's an area we know well as we have friends and have therefore had many visits and holidays in Lyme Regis ourselves.
I hope you continue to write and enjoy your life in Atticland as I know I will continue to enjoy it. Congratulations on all of your hooky achievements. 😊❤️

Happy blogiversary, I have to say thank you for creating and continuing to write on your blog. It's such a delight to read and look at your photos. Sometimes when life is not going right it's such a joy to look at your blog and read what your writing, it's like having a lovely friend by your side. I did meet you at Yarndale last year and you are so lovely I could imagine sitting with a cup of coffee with you and having a lovely chat. So thank you and I look forward to lots more lovely colour and writing from you. xxxx

Wendy

Congratulations on your anniversary. I love reading your blog. You keep me inspired. Whenever I don't know what to crochet, I always look at your blog. Thank you for sharing. x Wendy

Susannah

Congratulations Lucy! I love your blog and thank you so much for all the inspiration, all the smiles, all the beautiful photos and all the gorgeous color you have given us. Here's to a bright and creative blogging future!

Dianne Birchard

From Canada with admiration for writing such an inspiring blog. You make me feel happy as I look at your photographs of walks with your husband and children! I love how you appreciate the world around you and how you incorporate that love in your crocheting. I've made one of your granny afghans, a flower wreath and some triangle bunting coffee mats. Since I also quilt, rug hook as well, I'm not crocheting all the time. But, I read your news every week and always feel the connection between our worlds. Take care !😄

Sue.

Congratulations and thank you! You and your blog have brightened many a day and given me a love for crochet. You have inspired me and taught me! Please know how much your readers appreciate you and your lovely blog. Blessings to you and yours! Sue.

Juliana

I should just write 'Ditto' and be done because all of these comments echo what I think. I'm very grateful that I found your blog--I no longer remember how--and I so enjoy reading about your life and your work. I love how color is so important to you.
Best wishes on many, many more years of blogging!
