Hi Lucy - I've been following your blog for a while now and think it's so lovely and colourful! I'm originally from a tiny village called Kelbrook (between Colne and Skipton) which is over your way and your previous pics of the misty hills make me homesick - especially all the bad weather pics! Keep up the good work.



Beautiful post! So warm and cozy, I just love it. Have a wonderful weekend!



I am writing to you only to tell you how much I love your blog.

I am a Swedish woman, I live in the very north of Sweden (a lot of snow and very cold at winter time)

I work as a teacher on an upper secondary school and in my spare time I do a lot of handicraft.

I found your blog a couple of months ago and I really enjoy reading it

Some of the things I made after reading your tutorials are two blankets ripple style, one blanket granny stripes, the edging for grannys and so on. So when I have a problem with something crocheting for example I think - well I take a look at Attic 24 - and I always got a lot of help

I like your colour mix, and the lovely pictures (you are so good taking them) and your ever so interesting text.

best regards Ann


your photos are fab!

Pom Pom

Such beautiful photography, Lucy! Love those piggy toes!

Greetings from St Louis. Linked to your site twice via Ravelry, absolutely love reading your posts. Thank you so much for the crochet flowers, needed them to finish off a little raspberry hat for little neighbor girl. Everyone comments on how adorable they are. Have a Happy Halloween!!!!


Yes, I can't wait for the weekend! Your lovely pictures have inspired me to have a cosy family time with my boys! (Their feet are dead cute too)


I so absolutely love your blog. You are so creative, talented and wonderful with words. I so wish I could make the beautiful crochet items like you. They are fabulous! The little baby toes are sweet little blessings from heaven. Smootchy smootchy in our family. :) When I see your crochet i just want to snuggle in the blissfulness of them. Have a great weekend!

Taking Heart

I am trying to get in to your blog. You see, my BFF thinks you are practically Martha Stewart hersself... sheesh. So I gander back over here and scroll through your bloggings... just so I can report back to the Queen that I have made a visitation.

I love baby toes. I love geraniums. I love the sea. I love your yarn color choices. I love when you post photos of coffee or tea... so maybe you do have a cozy and quaint place over here... I will try to be back. Until then... if you happen to stop in and visit the Queen again over at the Palace Post ( www.thepalacepost.blogspot.com )
... say that her Scribe sent ya... say something snarky... I could really use a good scandalous laugh. hehehe

Hi Lucy, just popping in to say hi!!! Thinking of you and all your little ones!
Blessings to you and your family! xo Robin❤


Dear Lucy

my auntie and me have been following your blog for the last 6 months and we find it amazing.We are Spanish so it was great to read that u had a great time in our country:)Im living in Ireland so I share your passion with avoca shops also:)I would like u to have a look at my auntie crochet work and let me know what u think.
All the best and keep blogging!


I just wanted to let you know that I borrowed one of your photos and linked to your blog from mine. I hope you don't mind. If you do, I'll of course remove the picture immediately. I'm just so totally in love with your crocheting stuff and it has inspired me to start a blanket of my own, even if it's not entirely up to your standards! :)


heather mcginnis

I'm sorry your leg is hurting!! Still lovely pictures!!! I gave you a little blog award on my site! Your blog/crochet works are so inspiring I couldn't help but honor you in some way!
<3 heather


Much like Kate, I enjoy how you find delight in the simplest of things. Thanks for your posts - I think many of us forget to really look and find beauty in the simple things of life. PS - I had 4 boys and I especially loved bathtime, knowing the baby lotion massage would come next and my chance to spread *mommy kisses* all over their little bodies. They grow so fast - every day that passes is one less day you have to do that stuff!


Hi, I hope you don't mind but I blogged about your ripple pattern on my blog, If you do I will take it off. I have subscribed to your feed and hope you will to mine, i havent been doing this long and have been having difficulties with typepad and the internet!!! aaargh!
By the way i love your blog!
