About Me

  • 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 am from south Africa. I work at a college in Cape Town and all my collogues love your blog...me included.
I am coming to the UK in July and would like to come and see all your colourful work. Please let me know where your cafe is so that I can bring them some ideas back home.

Hi Lucy, I have just finished a ripple blanket for my new grandson due in December, its gorgeous and the first thing I have made thanks to you. I am going to come for a K.N soon to get some insperation from you. Love your blog, dont know where you find the time. Ann.


can you tell me what is a good book to use for getting started to do grannie squares and the little round darlings in this photo...and the yarn..the colores are FABULOUS...please help you are so inspiring.


I have just found your blog and tried out the ripple instructions you give - it worked!!! Thank you ever so much for sharing that pattern. I really enjoy your blog.


Oh, I'm still looking for someone from bonkers camp here...


You are soooooo not alone in your bonkers camp! I love all those things and thought I was the only one until I discovered blogging. How I wish I could join you at your k&n sessions. Alas, a little matter of work and not driving keeps me from joining you, but I'm with you in spirit and blogland. love Fi x


It all sounds very lovely indeed- the photos are beautiful! Think the cafe looks fabulous, such a great idea to attract regulars as well.


I love your posts always so colourfull, and I'd love to join you for a coffee and crochet, but i'm in dorset so it may be a bit far!!!!
yor hexegons look wonderful, is there a pattern or a make it up job? and I must say a thank you to you, I went to bridport , to 'a Girls own store' after i saw your post, wonderful shop and i met 'feathers' the dog, so thank you .


I love the sound of your mornings, they sound great. Love the crocheting too, very pretty. Just to let you know that you are one of the recipients of my PIF, just email me with your address etc
Have a good weekend


Sigh, I've tried crochet many times over the years and my circles always turn into rectangles, and my squares turn into circles... so I gave up!!

I've tagged you by the way, something bookish for you!

Have a great weekend.


I think I'll have to join you in the bonkers camp (would I get a badge as a member?). I'd love to join you in your knit and natter sessions but don't knit or crochet. Could I bring my cross stitch instead?


Hi Lucy
fantastic photos! love your company on our thursdays but i agree we should get our projects and ourselves together more often! thank you so much for teaching me the 'crochet thing' - i was sat in the summerhouse last night - with the midgie candles burning! - till past 9.30pm doing 'my squares' - i am so thrilled to be the C in your blog!! xxx

What a delightful, sunny, colourful post. Could you find room at the table for me? I would be very well behaved and could make the cappucinos so that you didn't have to waste a moment of natter time.


Hi Lucy, I so wish that I live near to you so I can come with you to your lovely cafe and Knit and Natter. OK, just natter as I have not mastered knitting or crochet! I would love to chat about crafts, magazines, kids, camping (oh do read my latest blog and my version of camping!), baking, charity shops (i Love these) and generally the stuff that make my life. Love your blog. Kathyx
