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 can't wait to see the floral fabric paintings, and I sat up to 1am this morning reading a pattern over and over trying to make a slightly complicated granny square, it involved picot stitches and trebles and doubles, I will have to blog how I got on... love the knit and natter idea in a coffee shop, Joanne books a hall but it lacks the cosy atmosphere...and cost money to hire!
Cheers Alex


Lovely to catch a piece of everyday and see it in a new light.It's good for the soul.Your hallway is so cheerful. I often find I have moments of noticing things after a break away.
The granny squares are fab, you've got those Great colours again :)


I am so pleased that I am not the only one who can knit but not crochet. I am in my sixties now and I have tried on and off all my life. I have had books, a dvd, some expert teachers but no, I still can't get the hang of it. And it's granny squares I especially want to make! Yours are absolutely lovely - perhaps I'll have another go.


Wow! Great tip, thanks.
Also, as I am a pro at chaining and double crocheting, I will attempt to do granny squares--I didn't know it was a DC stitch, I have been so scared, silly me--thanks for the link.
One more thing. I love the curly cue scarf at the top, did you crochet that?


ooo lovely squares :-) i get square envy a lot - mainly because I havent taught myself to crochet yet! i know it may be reasonably easy to pick up but it looks so complicated ..........
sigh... will just look at others work instead !

Thanks for the tip, Lucy, and the links.
By the way, your textile work is amazing. I'm looking at the pictures again and again, and each time I discover new things, tiny details, so lovely!


Thanks for the tips on tying in the loose ends Lucy. I really must take up crochet again but need to find a good wool supplier!


Hi Lucy, lovely post again today. Really, really, really want to learn to crochet so will definately take a peep at the links today. Love the hallway - still can't get the rose tesco bag here! Please take a peep at my blog - its about a lost dog - its really touched me. Kathy

Have to say that your blog always induces envy in me - today it is those Tesco bags. I've got one and do you think I can get any more? Rare as hens' teeth because they "always go as soon as they come in". Pah!

I knit but want to crochet. Have tried but just couldn't get it. Got the book Simply Crochet (I think it's called, can't locate it on bookshelves just now).

Also envious of your knit and natter group. Sigh.
