Lucy, hello, as a quite unexpected New Year Treat for me I have stumbled across your blog and am having a wonderful time reading your daily snippets of life, but also reading through your archives. Forgive me if I feel like you're becoming my new best friend!! My family also in 2007 moved from city to country town, kindergarten, school,new business, into a 100+ year old house (see the parallels?!!) and my mainstay has been my craft (both wool and fabric). Last year I made a 1950s colour-inspired Granny blanket and my little girls love snuggling under it in the Winter. Your beautiful blankets are inspiring me, but I will wait for our Australian summer to melt away before I pick up my crochet hook. The name I've used for any craft projects I've been doing over the last few years (and if/when I have my own blog) is 'playing in the attic', so my wish for you is that you continue having a wonderful time playing in your attic!!


Your new blanket is beautiful I love the pattern.


Wow! This blanket is going to be stunning!

Lucy Locket-Pocket

What a fab idea! I love the bright flowers in their cornflower blue garden squares! Looking forward to seeing your garden grow! Lucy x


HI Lucy,

you really do do the lovliest and most colourful of posts on your blog. I read them everyday when I come home from work with that first cup of coffee (or on a Friday after tea with a glass of wine). I think I'm probably a bit of a blog saddo as this has definately become a bit of a routine for me nowadays - I really must get out more!!!! but then with catching up on my favourite blogs, trying to update my own (at least once a week) and desperately trying to get my penny rug finished so that I can start to crochet a flowery cushion cover how can I ever find the time...... Keep on crocheting in full technicolour and have a great weekend.



Those colours are stunning. I check my blog roll every morning and keep getting side tracked with what I should be doing because of your beautiful, inspiring posts. Not sure what I am going to do next week once hubby is back at work after his summer holiday, he gives our daughter breakfast while I sit a read your blog, dreaming of making my own blanket.

This blanket is going to be amazing, I can't wait for you to finish it (or put up the tutorial for the granny squares).

Now to convince hubby that I NEED to buy more wool to start our blanket LOL


Looks like the beginnings of a very beautiful blanket. I too love the blanket making process, it's just fun!


Its looking lovely already - I'm itching to try granny squares but I am so determind to finish my "boring" blanket - I am terrible at finishing things.

Post lots more piccies



Hi, usually a lurker but wanted to post to say can't wait to see the finished blanket,if the other 3 are anything to go by it will be lovely.
Also thanks for posting the pattern for the hexagon blanket, about halfway through mine, hope it looks as good as yours.

Wow - you are just the inspiration I needed!!! I only came across your blog by chance today, and I'm mighty glad I did. I was feeling rather glum and your blankets have enveloped me in a brightness I needed and you've made me determined to learn to crochet. You see I meant to last year and have some yarn (vastly inferior to your wondrous Rowan) and said hooks - but got no further.

Do you have any links you'd recommend me searching - I did try You Tube and there are so many links there I rather got put off :( Thanks.


i love your flowergarden...im very inspired...
im so glad to find your blog...its fantastic


believe me, the balance yarn at the shop would soon be sold out, all thanks to ur lovely blog, so no worry ... lol..

congrats to u as u have just successfully created a new generation of granny square. looking forward to dropping by attic24 everyday.

It is so lovely, such cheerful delight on a winters day.

Thank you so much for such a feast of colour and inspiration! Your posts encouraged me to get back to my own ripple-in-progress after a very long intermission and it's been so enjoyable again (not least because working on it kept my knees warm during the recent cold snap!). Love the flower squares too.

WOW I started making a Hex afhgan because of you now I want to start another:) heehee I think I should finish the Hex first you think?
I love your blog I love the country side that you take and I love the colors that you show as well.
Blessings and a cup of Tea

You are very talented. I adore all of your beautiful, colourful blankets.


It is lovely! I love the colors and the design. You did a great job. I can't wait to see it all finished. You have inspired me to start another afghan.

Hello again Lucy. It's lovely to see what your'e doing with that gorgeous haul of wool- and so fast! I so wish I could crochet. I can knit socks fast and piece a quilt(not so fast) but crochet has so far got me beat. Did you teach yourself? I reckon I need a teacher but haven't found one yet. Still I've got my hook and the book you recommend and I'll have to persevere.
Not this afternoon though I just finished a big bake of bread, muffins and parkin finished off with your choc chip cookies, now a firm favourite with all my sons(and me if I get the chance) so thanks for the recipe. Love S

Debra Spincic

Such a wonderful riot of color! Everything about your work is joyful!


I just LOVE your blog(i visit daily), and your blankets which are also my passion. The colours you chose are very very beautiful, i wish i could go on the same shop to buy that yarn, unfortunately i'm very far and i can only buy it by net. Yr new blanket is going to be gorgeous.
Love Isabel xxxxx


WOW!Such amazing colours. All your blankets are beautiful but this one is going to be stunning!
