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

I LOVE your join-as-you-go! The part I don't like about making squares/hexes/parts is the assembly. Thanks for sharing!

Have you ever found problems or issues with these blankets (if they get 'hard use') being that they are connected at points instead of long seams?


Thank you so much! I appreciate your kindness and the time you put into this to teach us. I'm working on a hexagon now from your tutorial...too wonderful.

Warm regards


I joined my granny blanket like you did and I have to say is much better than having all blocks to sew at the end.
Coloures of photos are beautiful! how you match them is incredible ,even when you dress.

Hi Lucy! I´m doing another crochet work inspired by you, take a look. Can you believe that a year ago I didn't like crochet that much?
Thank you so much for teatching me and above all, for inspiring me! (sorry about the bad english!)

Hi!! I love this tutorial, it made it soooo much easier and more fun! Here is a link to my project I just made! Thanks for this!



Hi Lucy I am just learning to crochet and the thought of having to join all those squares!!!
Your tutorial is brilliant thank you so much


Love it! Now can you tell me how you join the new colour in so neatly?! Thanks, Karen

shelley davis

great little tip! thanks shelley


Doing it now on my little project - so, so, so much better than having to join them all later. Thanks

That's a great tutorial! I'm going to have to give this a try next time I try a granny square project - thanks!

Cheryl Curran

I just discovered your website! I think it's great! So colorful! I appreciate all the detailed pictures with the instructions, I'm using up all the ink in my printer! Thank you.


I DID IT! Sure, I woke up this morning and decided that the color was all wrong and I need to rip it all out... but I did it once and I can do it again. Thanks for the super clear tutorial.

Thank you so much for posts just like this one.
I find myself coming back here again and again for resources when I'm stuck on a project, and your step-by-step explanation are wonderful for a beginner like me.
Thank you so much!

Hello Lucy,
I thought you might like to see a neat idea for a granny square skirt.
Have a good week.



Hi Lucy,

How are you?

I have a question, when you don't join them as-you-go, do you stitch them up with a larger stitch at the corners? Because the squares are still a bit roundish or do they adjust?

Thank you!



Thank you :)
