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

I love your photography. I too, am a color addict !


Haven't seen your beautiful world in a while - hope you and the little ones are feeling better. Best wishes from a Florida girl (who is worried about all the oil on our beautiful beaches).


Hi Lucy

I am editor of Simply Handmade and a new magazine which we are starting from scratch - Crochet Trends. My first issue of SHM is out mid July and then bi-monthly, starting in that one there will be 3 trial smaller issues of Crochet Trends to test the waters!
As you can imagine i am so excited and this could be huge judging by how big crochet items are now.

This brings me to my question.....Would you be interested in helping out with a couple of projects? Please email me at [email protected] and i will go through details etc :)



Come back, Lucy! We miss you!

Yipeeeeeee. Just got an email that FINALLY, my pak is on it's way. Been a little nervous with the CC floating around across the pond. But, will be thrilled to start a new one soon.

By the way, just posted the Orphan Annie, Grannie Ripple today. It was a lot of fun and went by rather quickly. Great stash buster, but then I'm always busting my stash here as it keeps getting bigger and bigger.

Hope to post all my blankets on the line soon for my one year in blogland. Wanted to get a new header picture up, as I'm tired of that flower.

Hope all is well with you and fam this week. Hope to see and hear from you real soon, kiddo.

Off to pull some weeds and grab a quickie nap before dinner hour here,

Kate - T.G.B.


Hm, this is totally unrelated to this post, but I don't see another place to contact you... I just have a question about some of your crochet patterns, if you don't mind my asking? Thanks!


I love your blog! Thanks for sharing all the information about granny squares and other crocheting. You are so talented. Glad you and your little one are feeling better.

Dear Lucy - please let us know you are okay. It's a worry when your last posts said you were ill and then you disappear for 9 days!! Oh my!! I check your blog every day and it's cherries every day! I made a crochet covered wooden hanger - I posted a photo on my facebook page. You should join facebook for a quick "hello" to your "I Love Lucy" fans. :-) I also ordered the Lucy yarn package and am happy to say it's in the mail to me in Oregon.

Mainly - I hope you're okay and you're all well.

Love from Corbett, Oregon - Teresa


I check everyday to see if you post something. I enjoy your blog as much or more than any magazine I've ever read. I hope all is well in the Attic. I hope you are having a good summer vacation with the little people. I love how you call them that. So cute. At the moment I'm crocheting lots of hats for Algerian Action. It's a charity benefiting people of Algeria. I had started a granny blanket with some Red Heart yarn, but I'm not liking the acrylic right now. I hope you post again soon. Been missing you.
Love, Patricia from Texas.


I reckon I got your germs Lucy!
Glad you feeling better and hope ickle ones doing okay as well..
Happy hooking ( when you get the chance! )


I wish sick too! At least, sooo lousy.. Glad you feel better too and can enjoy the sun!


Hi Lucy
I hope all is well at Attic 24 and that both you and the baby are fully recovered.

hello Lucy
I love your things!
I live in Brazil, far away from you, but I'd love to take a coffee and make crochet with you...knows one day
sorry about my poor english



Hi Lucy, I have been reading your blog for sometime now and find it very inspiring. I too am 40 something(still feel 25) from Australia and you have brought me back to crochet. In the past 12 months I've crocheted 4 rugs and numerous scarves amongst other crafty pursuits. Crochet is so portable and doesn't require too much thinking. I in turn have inspired my SILs to take up the hook. It's like a virus. Missing your posts hope you're just busy and not still sick.Thanks for the inspiration.

Hi there Luce! Missing my Attic fix! Hope you are fully well now. I made your lemonade today, it smells lovely.


Hope you are OK.....haven't heard from you in awhile....that's fine, just thinking about you and hoping all is well! : )

Lucy did you ever finish the other stripy bag you were working on?? It was like a satchel . I'm thinking of making one and would love to see your finished one for inspiration xx

Donna :)

Love it! Love it! I find so much pleasure in your blogging expertise! I also realized that there are many common denominators in our lives. First, my younger sister lives in Barbados in the West Indies in Yorkshire on the Yorkshire Plantation. For those of you that don't know Barbados was under British rule before gaining independence! The rolling hills of your Yorkshire is very similar to her rolling hills of Barbados. Second, we too camp and have been since our children were very young and my mother-in-laws name was Connie (HOW FUNNY)the name of your van. Third, my sister and I both love,love love flowers and crochet. I am more the baker and cooker that she. So you see there is a connection and that's why I love you and your blog! Keep up the great work, you area very talented young woman!



Thank you for many days of colour and inspiration, I have greatly enjoyed reading through your blog whilst I have been recuperating. I've started to crochet my first cushion cover and ideas for a second one are bubbling away. Love that you explain it all so clearly. Hope you will soon feel fully recovered. Good wishes to all the family.

dreaming of a country home

Pretty colors and pretty photos, as always!



GORGEOUS colors! Love all the variety in summer.

I have just made my first Lucy bag! I need to get a picture taken and document the whole thing. It was a lovely project, so fun. I just didn't want it to end. Thanks for a wonderful pattern!


I have recently discovered your wonderful, colourful blog. It is really brightening my mid-winter days down here in South Africa. I am so inspired to colour up my kitting and crochet and try out some of your gorgeous ideas. Right now I am churning out wooly hats and scarves.


Well Lucy, I've been away from blogland since the start of the year (both writing mine and reading others).

Can I just say what a pleasure it has been to catch up with your blog!!

The 1st post I read was announcing the birth of you scrummy baby boy (Congrats, even if late!!). I have been 'hooked' on every post.

Amazed to see you have converted to acrylic for your lovely 'new' Connievan. My stash is mostly acrylic (expensive yarn always bought when REALLY cheap - I am a Yorkshire Lass lol) - it's that big that if it was expensive yarns, I'd need separate insurance on it!!!

Anyway hope you are fully recovered and enjoying our lovely Yorkshire weather. Might pop over your way at the weekend, quick drive and lovely scenery.

I am so glad to hear that you are on the mend dear Lucy.
I thought that little B might be teething and it seems I may have been right! Once the little babes get their first tooth, they kind of lose their 'babyness', if you know what I mean and all of a sudden they seem, well, older. But I do so lurve gorgeous baby grins with the little white tooth in the middle of their smile....lots of dribbling and shoving everything into their little mouths. I hope happy times are ahead for you and yours Lucy. x
