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

This vacation looks more like a dream! Thank you sharing with us. The progress on the granny stripes is lovely!


of all the blogs I read I think I like yours most of all. Pictures are great! Also you have inspired me to learn to crochet....
have just finished a blanket not as lovely as yours but has got me familiar with the stitches and ready for more. Its a camping blanket for our trailer tent and will be lovely and warm.


Hi Lucy

I went to Saltburn as a child, to meet our penfriends from Cambridgeshire (all the way from Tyne & Wear). We stayed in a methodist guest house, and it rained. I am now inspired to go back! Does that campsite have showers (the site wasn't specific) cos we've just bought a tent?

What a beauiful place! It looks like the perfect holiday :-) I loved the little carriages with the stained glass windows and those lovely terrace houses!! Glad the kids really had a fab time and such lovely memories. Sounds like Bliss :-)

Good morning Lucy!
This post is magnificent!! I feel as though I was there myself!! The pictures, one more beautiful than the next~
I went online right after you bought your Connievan to price out the same here in New England~ just for kicks of course....
Your blog brings me such joy!


That´s stunning! And it was a great pleasure to read and see the pics. Thanks for that. Makes me feel as if I was there,too
Have a lovely day,

Hi Lucy - I bought all the wool for the hook along & done the first 2 lots of granny clusters. Just wondered if it would be possible for you to list a colour order for the stripes in the blanket. I think the first 2 were Pomegranate, then Plum. Hope that was right. Loving the look of Saltburn - on my list of places to caravan now!


Como vai Lucy?

Fotos de sonho...fantásticas!...e sempre um pouco de crochet Parabéns e boas férias!


Your blog has inspired me!! I don't have a caravan, but ... our back porch is being tidied up this week by a builder friend and I'm thinking that maybe I could decorate my little conservatory in the style you have planned for Connievan. The conservatory makes our dining room quite dark, so I want to put lots and lots of cheerful accessories in this new room to put against the brilliant white walls. I'd love to learn to crochet granny stripes although I don't even have a natural eye for good colour schemes. Can anyone recommend a dummies guide to the style a la Attic 24?


It looks looks like you had a wonderful time. I'm glad the weather was kind to you, you certainly chose the right week to go away! I'm looking forward to hearing about your future adventures in the caravan! I've always wanted a caravan/camper van. :) XxX


Hi Lucy, we miss you!!
It looks you and your family have had a lovely vacation!! I'm consider to convince my partner to buy a caravan, we have Croatia Camping very near here, (I'm in the north east of Italy, near Venice and Slovenian border) :))
Little B foot is so cute!!!


Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant !!! Good morning Lucy, glad to have back from your wonderful jaunt with family and Connievan. Such an uplifting holiday blog.Grey skies here right now but feel as if we have been on holiday now too. Just love the photos. What great memories for you all. Isn't it bliss waking up and seeing what the new day has bought you !! Fabulous sky shots Lucy. The little feet are so cute right now....agree with you again there. Your latest hooky creation is looking good, the colours are just asking to be put together....lifts the spirits greatly.Thank you for being ...just wonderfully you and bringing such a joy to us all, wherever we might be in the world xxxx Heather.

I love traveling vicariously through you :-). Until we can visit England, that will have to do, and you do make it very enjoyable, so I don't mind a bit! Lovely pictures too!


Hi Lucy and thanks for visiting my blog!! I found this and wondered if you had seen it. It would look good with the lucy treatment. I may have a go with the rico when it comes!!! http://yarnartist.blogspot.com/2010/06/granny-cardigan_06.html


OH, how lovely. I love the seaside...just love it. I love those kinda of vacations noncommercialized just enjoying being together and the lazy hazy day of it!

What wonderful memories you have brought to me. I am here in Aussieland but used to holiday often in Scarborough and go for day trips, was there last in 2007 when I was back in UK for a trip, thank you for your wonderful stories, i hope Connievan gives you and your family many more wonderful adventures and memories.


Wow. Amazing pictures. Bebeh toes are so precious!


This looks just wonderful! Such happy memories for you and your family. :)


Hi Lucy...I'm so excited to discover your blog (thank you Google!). I'm equally addicted to colour and crochet and am enjoying your most excellent tuition. Thank you...
I'm free range crocheting at the moment making tea cosies...maybe the connievan needs a groovy crocheted one!

Leonie Guld

Ok...so I have just turned green with envy and started dribbling all over my key board. You look and sound like you had an absolute ball.

Oh...I can remember a while back about your...."can I crochet something to wear" delemma. Well...I wrote this very odd knitting pattern for a "wrap vest" and someone else has converted it to crochet and I thought you may like a look.

Heres the link http://raglanguld.blogspot.com/2010/06/wrap-vested-interest.html
