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

Hi, Lucy !
I just discovered your blog a few days ago, and can't help but coming back, and back again. I absolutely LOVE your works, and especially this summer garden blanket project. I usd to crochet maaaaany years ago, and now feel the urge coming back to it. I guess that, with the help of your clever and clear guidelines + photos, I'll then be able to make it... cross my fingers and toes ! TeeHee !..... ;>)
May I ask one question about quantities, pleeeeeeaze, Lucy ?
I understand you will need MORE white + green and blues, than the other random colors, but I can't figure how many ???
Could you be so kind, as to tell how many balls of these constant colors you bought, among the 30 in total ?
I'd be sooo grateful ;>) THANKS, dear !

Hiya Lucy,
thank you so much for this tutorial, I've had a go at this today and I have loved it. I've only reached 9 so far, but I've been joining as I go as well and I'm ever so proud. :) want to see?

I'm half finished with my wonderful, colorful ripple blanket!
I smile sometimes when I'm working on it and remember that a girl in England has inspired me... a country girl, living on a ranch in Texas...to crochet this delightful addition to my home. The next thing I want to do is the colorful flowery granny square throw. I'm just a tad anxious, though, about what to do with the end pieces when I change colors. Granny squares have always intimidated me because no matter how hard I try to weave in the ends, they always are popping out and looking fuzzy and unattractive. Could you do a tutorial on how you weave in your end pieces, Lucy? Thanks, Kate~


Thank you so much for the tutorial - I've just blogged about my first squares (which were my first crocheting as well):

Hi Lucy, I've nearly finished my hexagon blanket and am wondering what surface you use to block a large blanket that has been crocheted together-as-you-go. My beautiful striped purse is also nearly finished, but my daughter saw it and claimed it. She LOVED IT!
So I'll have to go buy some more yarn and make another for myself. Yeah!!! Love everything you do! Thanks so much for sharing it.

I love your blog and the tutorials....and I'm re-learning how to crochet because of your inspiration! Please....about how many balls of the Rowan yarns (Pure Wool DK and the Cotton) did you use for your summer square and hexagon blankets?

Thank you!

Hallo Lucy,
Thank you or sharing!
My Englisch is not so good but I hope you can understand it.
I love your blog and I come back.
The colors that you use are beautifull.
Greetings from Holland,

Thank you so much for the tutorial! I love the ones with the buttons in the center!


Hi Lucy,
Love your website! Do you have crocheted sweater,cardigan patterns for infants?


Thanks for sharing! I always have trouble following crochet patterns and this is one that I think I will actually make!


Thank you for this tutorial Lucy! I have only just started trying to teach myself crochet and was a bit bored and frustrated by rows! After looking at your clear instructions and pictures I thought I could probably manage one of these squares... and I could! All I need now is some more colours of wool.


Oh goodness... I've "known how to crochet" for three whole days and have spent them practicing swatches of different stitches but had no idea where to start with my first "thing"... this is it! Thank you :)


Hi Lucy,
This is a great tutorial - finally one that i have understood enough to start to make a blanket for my daughter. But I just want to ask if you do the 'blocking thing' that some sites talk about, is this necessary?
Your work is so beautiful and inspirational.
