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've been following your blog for a while now - most enjoyable. I'm actually busy with a lovely hexagon baby blanket out of 100% bamboo yarn. So soft!

Your link to subscribe to the blog feed doesn't work - just gives code (both on the bottom right and top of page). I'd love to get your blog in my inbox.

Thanks for the colour and hooky inspirations.

Thank you so much for that brilliant tutorial. That's Christmas presents for work people sorted! :-)


Amaaaaaaaaaaaazing; a pretty trim will be my next project after my ripple scarf (to practise the ripple pattern). I am so enjoying rediscovering hooking after a 15 year break - thankyou so much for your inspiration. Attic 24 is my guilty pleasure!

Lucy girl, I LOVE this! I'll definitely be making some of these for my candle jars. I may make some longer ones as curtain pull-backs for my daughter's room, too!


your tutorial is brilliant and so clear... I have made one and will make more once I find more jam jars. they are so pretty thank you


Thank you sooooooo much for this tutorial. I've been crocheting basic patterns since my grandmother first taught me 30+ years ago and never ever believed I could follow a pattern. However, I'm almost finished making the front of a pillow using your blooming flower pattern and I'm loving it. Not as colourful as yours though as I wanted it to coordinate with my bedroom's colour scheme.
And now this is perfect timing for this pattern as I need to whip up a couple more handmade things for an advent swap I'm taking part in this weekend.!! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I so love stopping by your dear blog all the time for inspiration about all things hooky.
Will come back in next day or say and contribute for your time and effort.
It is much, much appreciated.
Have a beautiful day. Michey xx


This would make great tinsel on a tree... wish I could get my head around crochet, tis why I read here, you keep inspiring me to find time to sit down and figure it out.


Thank yooooooou! :D


Thanks tonnes for posting this delightful tutorial - I just love visiting your page and reading up on all of your tips and tricks :)
I have dug out some of my mum's canning jars from the shed, washed them up a bit and I plan on decorating them with this little trim tutorial!

I nabbed Christmas coloured yarn at the craft store yesterday and I'm going to fill the jars with dry cupcake ingredients and such for Christmas gifties!!

*off to crochet!*


So adorable! I love it!


Can't wait to have a go at this. It's adorable. Thanks so much!

Lucy, this trim is beautiful! I'm going to take your idea for giving trimmed jars/candles for the holidays. I truly appreciate all of your fantastic tutorials and your photography.

Warmest regards,

from the USA...thanks for your post. You are such an inspiration to me even though I am just now learning; I hope to be able to crochet like you one day. thanks.


You do such a WONDERFUL job of explaining your stitches. The photos are very helpful as well. Thank you!!


Thank you so much! You've put so much time and effort into this - I hope you know how much you're appreciated and loved!

Hi Lucy,
I just love your blog and many others here in Belgium too!
Happy holiday's and à great 2012


I only now saw this lovely tutorial work, thanks!


Thanks for sharing this. I made this project over the last couple of days and it would have been perfect.. except my 3 year old decided to unzip my bag, take out the scissors, and cut into it in a couple of places. I'm happy to report I was able to patch it together and you can only tell in one spot. I re-worked the top edge row completely but it only took a couple of minutes. I love it - and learned an important lesson that my little guy has wised up to my little bag of knitting/crocheting fun! LOL


What yarn are you using :)


Lovely! This would be perfect trim for a jean skirt. I am 15 and love crocheting... and really should get back to my Algebra now, ugh.


Love this trim. Thanks so much for your clear tutorial. I think it would be great for anything, but I would use it as grapes! Maybe even to put around a wine bottle (all of the clusters in a wine color).


Thank you for the tutorial! I love this trim and will make it as soon as I finish the bag I'm making! Love Love Love your blog!!


Another very pretty idea that I posted from you on my Blog:
I love your work. Very nice. Thank you for sharing!

My Christmas presents to friends are going to be jars full of homemade Christmas spiced sugar body scrub with this trim in Christmas colours round it. Thanks so much for all the inspiration you give me. X
