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

Hi Lucy.....the Granny Squares your are making for the cushion....have you ever Ta-Dah'd this? I just can't find it and I so wanted to see how it turned out!

Could you indulge me?

Happy Hooking (although not much of the alfresco sort at the mo eh?)



Oh you can’t believe how I envy you… for passing weekends in the Yorkshire Dales …for living so close to there. I only know them from pictures and the James Herriot films but they seem so beautiful to me! Just found your blog through ravelry and love the crochet you do! So bright and colourful. Will come back and follow your adventures!

Sorry to read you are feeling proper poorly both you and baby. Just to let you know I enjoy reading your blog and love the colours you use for your crochet projects.


So sorry you're feeling under the weather. I know what you mean - I'm perpetually tired after disturbed nights and/ or far too early mornings and my daughter's 4! Hope you get a rest and feel better soon.


Dear Lucy,
Thanks so much for posting pics of the Yorkshire dales! I have got out my James Heriot and looking at your pictures and re reading his books for the umpteenth time!

I've just found your blog and am enthralled with all the bright colours of your crochet projects.
I work full-time so don't get as much time as I would like to do crochet but I love it when I do!
It looks as if your caravan trip was a success. I'm sure the children loved it just as much as you!


May I ask, how do you choose your colors? Or color combonations are always so wonderful... how do you do that?


I love your world full of so nice colors and beautiful grannies. It's always happiness for the eyes.


I can't wait to get started on my own granny stripe blanket, be sure to let us all know when you get started so that we can hook along with you! Another beautiful and inspiring post xx


Love the name for your caravan, my youngest is also called Connie and I have to say she is full of love, a little bit of mischeif but so much fun. Hopefully your van will bring the same qualitys.

Hi Lucy,
Any chance you can list the colours you have chosen? They are lovely. I'd love to join in on granny stripe fun. I'm in need of doing something while traveling soon...


that whole weekend looks delicious -in a non food way- though that beer does look awesome and I don't even like beer. I think you've chosen the best name possible for your van, Connievan, I love it, f we ever graduate from swag camping and get a van I may just have to steel it.


Hi Lucy!
The colours are wonderful, as usual. I have finally finished my exams so will start on the new stripey blanket tonight, yippie! and look forward to your granny tutorial. Have a lovely bank holiday! Pati from sunny London

Lucy, did you realise that Jan Eaton has a granny stripe square in her book 200 crochet blocks? would you like me to write it out & email it to you?


Just ordering the yarn and hope to do it too. Can you write the patten as you go for us following along...Love your blog.


Your caravan looks like great fun, and your kids are going to have such happy memories of camping as a family! I clicked on your yarn link, and OH MY GOODNESS they've named the collection after you and made it so that people can order with just a single little click! How cool is that? You're famous! I'm a crocheter, too, and that's just the neatest thing I've seen all day.


love to join the Granny Stripe - a - long!

funny enough i couldnt afford any posh yarn as im on maternity leave again ( twice in 16 months!) so that stylecraft yarn was on the ones i bought - 22 balls for £28 ish. what a bargin and really nice to work with. this yarn so far has made your bag, half a hex blanket, a bird for an expected baby, and another crocheted blanket im working on. nice to see someone else using unposh yarn. xx


Hi Lucy,
I never did say thank you for dropping by my blog, it was really lovely to hear from you, a great surprise, and you really made my day - so thank you!
It looks like you had a great weekend. Having read your post, I can't wait to set off on our camping holiday on Sunday. But I'm not sure we'll be as lucky with the weather as you!
a-m x


Your weekend sounds absolutely delightful - what I wouldn't give for some time free of wedding plans, shopping and housework! I have used Stylecraft ever since I started crocheting, and it is a pretty good yarn. None of my projects have come out as wonderfully as yours though! Very much looking forward to seeing the caravan blanket :-) x


Your colours are beautiful, as usual. :)
I would love to join in the the granny blanket.
Love Lesley x


Pretty post, lovely countryside, beautiful yarns, and it sounds to me like someone has a very happy heart. I'm glad for you. I don't know why but I love the photo with the crocs in the water. It's an excellent picture. It's so sweetly shimmery and reminds me of when I was a little girl living and playing along the lake making my mud pies.

Sounds like an absolute dream of a weekend. Color me jealous.
(Scotch eggs?!?!?! Love 'em would like to know how to make them all on my own)

I have been waiting with bated breath for your Granny Stripe Tutorial! I have made the granny twinkle bunting in gorgeous boy colors and am longing to make a crib blankie that matches.( We are waiting to travel to China to bring home our son- Liam: and so I am working on things for his room )


I found your blog a few weeks ago and I'm working my way through the archives. Your writting and photos brings a smile to my face and I have to agree with everyone else that the colors look great. I'm looking foward to seeing what you do with the Connievan.
