Oh how I have been missing my beloved visits to the Attic! I can just feel that sumptuous yarn in my own hands! I love the addition of the buttons. I am really enjoying following along as your blanket unfolds and blooms. :~)


i love it, they are a burst of colorful loveliness...I have always loved the granny...
Your blankets are so beautiful!

Yesterday at Attic24 was and up/down day for me. On the one hand you posted the pattern for the Garden Squares, which I've been dying for. On the other hand, I finished reading every last post at Attic 24, beginning to end. It's taken me a couple of months, a few posts a day, and it's been such a wonderful part of my days, I'm so sad I don't have anymore catching pu to do. You are so inspiring, with your crochet, your photographs, your recipes, your home, YOU! Thank-you so much for letting us peek into your world. One of these days soon I will set up a Flikr page for myself so you can see the things you've inspired me to create, I've surprised even myself!


I have just found your blog, and what a find, lots of lovely eye candy. I like to crochet but I don't do nearly enough. But looking at yours makes me want to get mine out. I love the colours you use too.
Your trip to London looked great. The cupcakes just looked fantastical.
I must call back.


Oooh, thank you for the pattern. I think I might give it a try - I'm sprucing up my sofas with some crocheted cushions at the moment and a lovely bright granny square blanket would compliment them perfectly! Your blog is a welcome dose of colour and loveliness!


I just wanted to say thank you for keeping your beautiful blog. I just started reading recently after finding you through a link on another blog and your gorgeous creations have inspired me to try crochet. I am a die-hard sock knitter and have never been able to conquer crochet, but thanks to your inspiration and You Tube videos I have just started a Ripple Blanket - and am fast becoming addicted! Your blog entries are like little pieces of rainbow that never fail to brighten my day. My sincere thanks for all the time and effort you put into it. :o)


Thanks so much for sharing your crochet patterns. I am in the middle of a shawl but when i've finished I am keen to start the crochet bag!

I wonder if you could let me know if you made your ripple/wave blanket from a pattern or your head, nad if you wouldn't mind sharing.

As well as my granny squary blankets, I would love a ripple and hexagonal blanket too!

So much crochet to do, so little time.



Lovely crochet Lucy, I think they look fab as corsages too, will you be selling them in your etsy shop (when it is open) ? Am desperate to try your cookie recipe but I think they will have to wait til monday as I need to get some ingredients. Hope you have a lovely weekend X Gem


Bewitch your works!

Hi Lucy Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am honoured :) I did blog a litle last week about the Rowan book http://thirtyfiveflowers.blogspot.com/2009/01/deliciousness.html
I've been so pleased with it as a beginner and learnt so easily where I failed with other books. It has a great selection of projects and ideas, lots of basic patterns and the layout and design of the book is clear and practical. I really love it but it was more expensive than most other books of it's kind, luckily it was a present! You could try and get a look at a copy before you buy, mine came from Waterstones.
Keep warm!

P.S. I couldn't stop crocheting hexagons after I finished the blanket for my friend's baby so I made myself a hexagon scarf too!

Gorgeous, I really do need to learn to crochet!

Have a lovely weekend,



So pretty! Thank you for sharing! ~Kelly


I have only recently discovered you. What a find! You are very generous with you patterns and recipes.Thank you so much for doing this. As to the Be-Ro book I have several dating back to the fifties!!! I love it. I have also just re-discovered crochet after a 30 year gap. How it has moved on and turned back! I love the zingy colours and can't wait to try them all out. I am enjoying (!) the wintry weather here in the South West! Thank you again and I look forward to a regular read...


Oooh! Another pattern - thank you

Just made the cookies - yum! We need them after a very snowy week

Lucy, you brighten my day with your glorious colors and ideas to use them! And, your photography is splendid. I so look forward to visiting your blog. Thank you for being you and for sharing your lovely talents!


Good Morning, Lucy! I can't wait for the pattern; your ideas are most inspiring. I think, perhaps, what I like MOST, is your kindness and willingness to share. I'm preparing my yarns and crochet hook as soon as I post this to you. Have a fine day.


love the squares really pretty! They look like the daisy bag that my granny made so many years ago.

The are so lovely! Thanks so much for sharing your pattern as a new crocheter it is so inspiring! I just love your blog and come often as it is such happy place full of great colors. Can you tell us what colors you are using on your project?

Thanks so much and have a lovely weekend!



What lovely pictures! I love your little button-y circles, and the squares in bloom, and am so excited you're sharing the pattern! You are indeed a generous person :-)
