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

Hi Lucy,

So enjoy your pictures and crochet work. You have gotten me to crochet again! I'm making the bag with flowers and handle. It is coming out awesome. Love reading your blog and all your wonderful ideas and enthusiasm about color and simple life and living!!! Robbie from Vermont, USA


Hi Lucy! You seem to have a wonderful summer so far, I really love how you've planted your flowers, mixing the colours in the same way you mix your yarncreations. Now I've finally (almost) finished my first part of a blanket, according to your tutorial, inspired and inspired and amazed by you BB. I think I want to have a white round as well, even though you frogged yours. ;)

I'm so happy that I found you and your blog, It's made my heart become a whole lot happier!

A big, big hug for you !


Love that lily, colour is fab and it's such a perfectly shaped specimen :-)

Welcome Back!! You are so missed when you dont write!!! Isnt it grand to be sooo popular!! no pressures though!

I must admit to you why I love your blog- besides the obvious - crochet loveliness and all...
My mother was from England and brought with her the Enid Blyton books about the Faraway Tree- I think maybe 3 or 4 books in the series. When I read your wording and see your photos it always brings back the memories of those wonderful books!! What a lovely country you live in!!


This time my comment was deleted. :(
I´m saying something wrong? :/
I´m sorry. U.u


Hi, I see Jane has written about David Hockney too! She has a link to a programme about him, thought you might be interested: http://yarnstorm.blogs.com/jane_brocket/2009/07/small-.html

If there is ever a blog that encourages me to take better photos, enjoy color and feel comforted by wool, its yours. Thanks for brightening my day, providing inspiration and hope the the winter that I sit amongst will turn in to spring and then summer!


It all sounds and looks wonderful. I hope some inspiration rubbed off on them by staying in the attic! :)


Because of you I now own 3 crochet books! Still to actually have a go though...


Hi there, I just found your delicious blog! I got my copy of CL yesterday too and I'm waiting to savour it too! Lol! :)

(your blanket is gorgeous!) love, Tina :)


Hi Lucy
I always enjoy coming to your blog to look at all the wonderful colors you have and enjoy your great sense of humor.


I absolutely adore reading your posts! The colors you show are absolutely divine not to mention I really just thoroughly enjoy your 'voice' in your blog. :) I've been inspired to hooky goodness! If you'd like I'll post a link when it's finished. :)


I am pleased you have had a fun and busy week with your Dad. Make the most of their company. Agonies have a bounded here. I have been arranging and rearranging the magazines at work. Picking up the little beauty of CL and risking a peep. I am off now to buy the last one so I hope it is still there. It was 27 minutes ago!!! Have a great weekend and enjoy your read!
PS I love the flowers!


All of your crochet and gardening is looking gorgeous. I can't wait to see your finished projects. I hope you are enjoying your summer.

These photos gave me the shot of color I needed. How beautiful. You have such an eye for photography. It's like eye candy. I missed you the last 5 days so it is great to read your new post. Have a lovely day Lucy!


It's been ages since we've been to Salts Mill (naughty cos it's only 10 mins drive away and our great auntie lives about 1 min walk away!). I feel the need to go when we next have a day off together!

Every July we have a big party at Bolton Abby for my neive and nephews bday....we'll be by the river on the 19th if you are in the area!!!!


So glad to see you back. I missed you and looked in every day. Looking forward to seeing what you make with your lovely crocheted flowers. Have a great weekend Lucy. xx
