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

Wow, this is gorgeous, lovely lovely colours. You inspire me!


Wow - that blanket is absolutely gorgeous and I'm totally envious of someone being able to make such a beautiful treasure. I haven't learnt to crochet yet, but have a hook and am starting to teach myself right now - your work is a true inspiration and hope to be able to crochet something half as beautiful in time.


just discovered your attic, and I am besotted! love the colours! adore the crochet! i want your yarn bag! thank you for your inspiration


I so enjoy following your blog! I love all your crochet work, your color combinations and choices are simply stunning! Your ripple pattern inspires me to work on a ripple again - the first for me in a decade or more!! I'm currently stuck in a stripey mode and loving it.


I love the colours in your photos.
I check your page everyday to brighten my day. I am a beginner at crochet - and loving it! Do you have any recommendations for a slipper pattern?

What a wonderful way to spend your time early one morning when all is still. I have just got in to crochet and absolutely LOVE IT!
I am having a GIVEAWAY.

Rainbow girl Lucy,
Sending you love and hugs, Jane x


I always get a morning cuppa brought to me before 5am EVERY morning - arh, the joys of living on a farm but it is nice to get up, esp with the light mornings and get things done before everybody else wakes up.
BB looks gorgeous and love ya mug


This comment is less about the early rising and more about your lovely crochet work. I love your beautiful blanket! And I was so inspired by your crocheted bag that have started one for myself. I admit I would really have liked to use the bright colors you did but alas I am using what I have around the house and only found a smattering of the brights. So I am going with a more subdued two-tone theme this time. I'll try to take a picture when I'm finished. Thank you for your inspiration!


Hi Lucy,

I'm writing because I'm worried about you! My daily routine is always checking my favorite European blogs--Tongue in Cheek, Chez Larsson, and then Attic24. Is everything okay with you? I've missed "our" daily visits and I can only hope you haven't written much because your days are just chock-full of good things and you're too exhausted from having fun.

I hope that's the case! Take care. :o)


Hi just found your blog, and what a treat! I am a total anglophile (my ancestry is about 70% English, so it was inevitable!), I love all things English, and have dreamed all my life of visiting there. I can vacation vicariously through your blog! I too love buttons, and ribbons, and colors, and baking, and......CROCHET! I wish I could sew though, but planning to take a class soon! I'll stop by each day to see what you're up to!

Are you ok? Very unlike you to not blog. If you need to chat email me. If we are in our in sync cycle then this week is a bit down.

Love Emma xxxxxx


It's posts like these that make me want to wake up far earlier than I do right now. But how does one transition from night owl to morning lark?? Maybe someday I can start seeing that time of day...


Great flickr groups! I hadn't seen the granny square one yet.

Hi Lucy!
Do you use the same colours in BB as you did on the summer blanket? Actually, I just ordered the same 13 coulors of Rowan pure wool dk as you had in it. I do love your colourchoices.
Maybe a stupid question, but, what's "dk" stand for in that yarn? Here in Sweden I haven't seen it before.
I've done some blankets and bags inspired by all your beautiful things, but I don't have any blog or homepage, so I can't show you them.
Anyway, I just love your blog!


How I wish I needed less sleep, unfortunately I'm a big sleeper, able to sleep for England! If I don't get enough sleep, I feel nauseous and spaced out. The thought of having extra crocheting time! Would be heavenly. Love all the colours in this post, and you surrounded by blankets, with their gorgeous colours, very lovely and somehow reassuring.
Love Vanessa xxx


Early starts make the days longer...
A lot of beautifull things to do,more time to spend with our dears!!
Happy week


Enjoy the simple things in live as always. I normally do something similar (read, crochet, knit or embroider) when waking up on impossible hours. Sooths the thoughts rushing through my head. ; )

Lucy I do have a question for you...
all of your crocheting is beautiful. How do you go about choosing the perfect colors?? The colors you choose always flow so beautifully. You certainly have an eye for color!
Pam L.


How blissful & lovely, indeed!


This has happened to me a couple of times. I do like the house when all is so peacful but by 3 in the afternoon I'm in need of a nanna nap.

I love your blog, and admire your blankets that you crochet, I wish I knew how, I am very crafty, but no clue how to crochet.

Patti Smith

Oh! What a treat to see your crochet projects. They are so very lovely. I am trying to learn your Ripple Pattern. I keep at it and someday maybe my crochet will look as wonderful as yours! Thanks for sharing.

My life has gone in phases - up early with the tiny tots and then loafing around with the teenagers. Now that they are out of the house I can do as I please and getting up at 4.30am is not the way forward for me - no sirree! I prefer a civilised 7am.


Isn't it fun to step out of one's usual routine? Every so often I stay up much, much later than normal, and love that night quiet. Waking up early also can show me more about how a day truly begins.

Fun to beat the bird song!

Also fun to see those granny square flicks.
