Dear Lucy,

wow, what a colourful pictures yet again! I have been following your blog since a couple of months and I enjoy it very much with a cup of coffee! We have moved from Amsterdam, Holland to remote Western Australia. I was looking for some clear instructions for granny squares that I have found on your blog. This whole new environment and way of life in Australia encouraged me to finally sit down and crochet. Thank you very much for sharing!

Have a great 2011! Melanie


Thankyou so much for all that you so generously give. You remain a guiding force in the world of contemporary crochet. You are encouraging a rejuvination of the art and are very talented. I look forward to what you come up with in the future. Cheers Louise

Your blog filled my heart with smiles and joy, each time I read it...

This is my first comment on your blog, but I really want to wish you a very Happy New Year, to you and your lovely family!

Such eye candy looking at your photos. Love the bits of Little B you've got in some of those. So precious and angelic. Happy New Year and I wish you even more domestic comfort and bliss with your family :-)

It is so much fun to look back at the year passing in your pictures. I can remember almost every post those pictures came from originally. Fabulous!


Such a bright year! All the best for 2011 x

janie !

thank you, i hope 2011 is as beautiful as 2010.


Hi Lucy
I've been reading for a while and love your blog - especially the colours. I was inspired to take up crochet by it. My first (slightly over-ambitious) project is a blanket in blues and purple. Unfortunately I broke my right wrist half-way through it and following an operation will be in plaster for eight weeks. It's very frustrating but your pictures are providing lots of inspiration for when I can start again!
Happy New Year to you and your family.


wishing you a colorfull(you already are)and sparkling 2011!!!!

Happy New Year to you dear girl, and let me thank you for inspiring me to start my own blog! I am so excited!! I am taking the leap, getting my feet wet, and have a lot to learn. Maybe I will have something to offer as time goes by. I hope people find a few minutes to come visit me. I have one friend who follows me and hope that in time I will have more. I have added both of you to my favorite blogs. It will take me awhile to add all the others I am enjoying. Health and happiness to you and your family for the year 2011......xoxo :)


Gorgeous mosaics! Happy new year everyone xxxx


When I think of Attic 24, the first word that comes to mind is.....color!. Thank you for helping me see and appreciate the little things in my life. To see the superb in the mundane. To live each moment to the fullest. To fill up my days with things I love. Thank You, Lucy. Looking forward to a wonderful 2011 and wishing you and your lovely family the very best life has to offer.

I knew just where to make my first stop upon getting back home. You must know the joy, splendor, fun, laughs, bounty of color, bundles of love you have brought into my life in 2010.

My dear friend, I so am looking forward to much more in 2011. It may take me a day or so to get back in the swing. But, this little posting is sending me off to naptime full of things to dream about.

Wishes for a happy, healthy and blogfully fun NEW YEAR,

Toodles to you and all-

Alice and Raymond!!!

Gorgeous Lucy!
As I was looking through them, I remembered that I have only been reading since ummm... May!!!??? I think all of us who blog or crochet have our special Lucy moments and reasons why we hold you so close to our hearts... I'll tell you mine....
I only got the internet in April for the first time ever, and thats when I learned to crochet too... I had made my first project, a giant granny square the size of a lap blanket and I wanted to do a bobble edge but I didn't know how, so I googled Bobble edging and the first thing to come up was your site with your gloves! I had never heard of blogs back then, so had noooooo idea who you were and what your site was, and even though I didn't use your bobble edge pattern in the end, I kept sneaking back on and googling bobble edge because thats the only way I knew how to get back to your blog! And after that, like everyone, I was a bit hooked!
So thank you! I love when I have a moment,(not so often!!) slipping back into time and reading your old posts and I know I'm up to where you announced your pregnancy with Little B, but then I've picked up again in May 2010, so there are a lot of blankets I've missed!
Have a very blessed 2011 and thank you for spreading so much joy, lovely Lucy!
