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

Hello Lucy, I came across your blog while looking for a particular afghan pattern, that I haven't been able to find. It's just like your wonderful Hexagonal pattern from your 'Hexagonal Goodness' post from Oct 6th, 2008. Did you ever post the instructions on how to make it? I am new to crocheting, and can't figure it out myself. What I am trying to find is a pattern for the online store's 'Garnet Hill' Haverhill afghan. It's too beautiful for words, and yours is the closest thing to it I can find. Please let me know where I can find instructions so I can make this piece of heaven for myself.

I love the color of your work. You have a great talent. Keep this up always.


I am a ragwort expert. Don't be panicked by the comment by the ignorant person above.
It is hysterical nonsense.
see www.ragwortfacts.com for debunkings of all the hysteria with references to the scientific literature,

do you mind if i knit

So nice to see you've been inspired by my little squares scarf too Lucy. Love Vanessa xxx


I've wandered over from Down-to-
Earth and have been lurking around a bit. Had to say thanks
for the sweet and sour recipe-
"truly Awesome" according to my friend's son (the carrot cake is in the oven). And can't wait to finish up several works so I can try a granny stripes-one more wip might just rattle the management around here.

I would really like to send you (free) a crochet pattern that I think you would really like. It would really brighten your day and give you a "new challenge" Convo me [email protected] :)


Lucy - I've been following your blog for a month or so now. I so enjoy the colourful crochet, fab looking pieces and its great to see they are getting good use in your home and Connievan! It's given me some great ideas and a bucket of inspiration....


Hi Lucy
I love to visit you for a daily dose of color! Just wanted to let you know I referred to your blog today on my post.


Loving the crochet and cute feet and blankets and oooooh everything! can't wait to see your TRP -Ta-dah! Jane


Wow another blog Lucy! love the grannies , you have given me inspiration to maybe do some crochet cardigans for my dolls clothes later in the year, what an inspiration to us all you are, so imaginative x

How lovely to have some rest days with a great bunch of neighbors to share those days with--perfectly delightful, Lucy. The TRP looks off to a smashing start and I look forward to seeing the project emerge.


I love the little grannies! THey ARE adorable. I'm so glad you're finding more time to blog. I've missed your updates.

Hi Lucy. I cant wait to see your TRP. Will yours be wearing crocs & hugging a cuppa too?
Since seeing your Connievan jar of flowers, I simply have to have a jar the same. Was the jam jar a recent M&S purchase?
My granny blanket is looking good too - I'm wondering what you are going to make with those teeny weeny squares...I want a crocheted house like yours please! :-)

Such a lovely post Lucy, and the view from your attic reminds me of our lovely Skipton holiday in June. Our boys still say it was by far the best holiday they have ever had, we'd love to go back. Luke got his place at York Uni (he got 4 A's!) so I am busily knitting up that blanket before he disappears to the Frozen North!!! xxxxxx


Hi Lucy, thank you so much for finding teawagon and sharing the toilet roll people! Joshy and me have made our own little versions! Also seeing little B's cute chubby little legs makes me long for these last two months to hurry by! although steve and i cant seem to agree on any baby names this time round! i cant believe how quickly the holidays have gone i hope you have a lovely last few weeks with your little people! fliss xxx

your TRP looks like it is a lot of fun, we may have to wait for the holidays for this one :-)

Dani at Little Cotton Bluebirds

Oh Lucy, Your writings make me miss the comforts of England. I look seemly forward to reading your blogs everyday. The closest I can get to home in appearance is Boston. Can't wait until your next post!


Yay. Love the Grannies and Kiddies and you and the Yorkshire Hills and sigh every little thing. Thank you.


Charming post. :D


You are scarily organized! I've got three children, 6, 4 and 1 and I can only dream of have things so colour co-ordinated and ready to grab at a moments notice. I know I should run upstairs immediately and sort, sort, sort, but somehow a hot bath always beckons at the end of the day to lure me from the teetering ironing pile. I love reading your blog, it makes me feel like I've done work too, by some weird computer osmosis thing and then I don't feel so bad. Hope the rest of the holiday is just as lovely for you. x

Lori Daly

Lucy it's so nice to hear you are having a joyful summer...fitting in everything you love to do...which includes spending quality time with your children. I am so glad to read your joy and love that you are back even if it is for only a little while. I so wish I was your neighbor!!!!

Thanks for sharing your happy chilling day and your crafty inspiration.
