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 popped in to Home Sweet Home on Tuesday and mentioned your link to the shop, I've sent them a link to your blog and shop mention, hope you don't mind!!


Can't believe I've been away for so long! Your blog is really 100% eye candy.

Now I will always come back and visit, I just put a special link in my own blog to come and visit your Attic 24! (see if you can find it).

greetings from Amsterdam...

Hi Lucy,
I have always been a silent admirer of you and your blog, I can feel so much calmness, and so much warmth in what you write and what you do...

I just luv...

I am just reading the blogs of the people having some travel experience and accidentally i found your post...First i decided to leave this one and to move further but then i changed my mind and start reading this post and after reading the post i found it quite interesting...All the pics are awesomely clicked...


Hi Lucy- your posts always cheer me up- I love your way with colours!You mentioned somewhere that you were looking for a pattern for a shawl/ wrap/scarf type thing... Have you tried Drops designs? I look at this in Dutch, but I am sure they have an English language option too! Loads of FREE crochet patterns, and I think the colours would appeal to you as well! Much love

Oh my goodness....so much loveliness!!! You are so adorable...and all of your creations too! Cheers to you!


I love the sheen on that alpaca/silk yarn. Makes me just want to reach through the screen and touch it. Your Feb. 1st is so beautiful, almost verdant. Makes this snowbound girl miss spring just that much more. Guess I should have planted some hyacinths too. :)

Your sweet flower patch granny looks so cozy and lovely, perfect for this time of year. She will compliment Connievan beautifully.


I love the halo of that new yarn, it's just gorgeous. I can't wait to see what you make with it! x


I just awarded you the Stylish Blog Award! Check out my blog and get the details.



Love the flowers, love the pics, love the blanket, I am also a laundry-sniffer! I love getting it in from the line, and sniffing every item! I remember my mum doing that too! Can't wait to see your lovely yarn grow into something special and comforting x


I so love dropping by. You have the best posts and the view from your attic window is wonderful. I have to ask, where do you get your scrumptous yarns. Are they available in the US? Mail order? You have the best artistic eye for color. :) Have a great rest of the week.

Hi Lucy

I adore your blog. I also can't find a way of emailing you! Would you mind getting in touch? I would like to invite you to something fabulous. Sorry to come over all mysterious-like lol!


Morning Lucy

Sadly my Hyacinths have ended now. I did have to bin them before the smell got too pungent and the bears complained! They have been replaced by tulips and daffodils which are making me smile. Happy little souls.

I too would love a utility room. Like you, I i'm not sure how much use it would get, but I do have a thing about pretty cleaning stuff and would love to have a little space just to store it and pretend I love to do the laundry! I think when you have a larger family, you just get buried underneath it everyday and that's no fun!

I would have to decide what is more important though, a utility room or a verrandah. My ultimate dream to be able to sit on a flowerpot filled verrandah and sip my tea! Dream on! he he

Have a super week!

Much love

Just wanted to say that your blog is amazing. i have been following you for a while but never got round to commenting before. I love colour too and your blog never fails to brighten a dark day.



Hi Lucy!!!

I was just wondering from your pics if you lived in skipton, north yorkshire? It's where I am from, and the photos look very familiar lol...love the blog!! x


Beautiful photos! Love the wool you are using, looks so cozy!


I have to tell you how much I enjoy your cheerful blog! I'm making your hexagon afghan and mentioned your blog and instructions in my post on my blog today. Thanks for brightening up my life with your colorful creations!


I love seeing the view from your window. First thing I thought when I saw this post was Where'd your snow go? Spring is not far now. Can't wait!


you have to be the most amazing and inspirational women I have ever known...thank you for making my days seem as though I can do anything...I appreciate you sharing yourself and making me feel as though I can do the things I would like to do...you are amazing.


I must say that your new choice of yarn has me a bit taken back, I love using natural fibers myself, so I can relate to loving the alpaca/silk, but what I'm most surprised about is the color palette that you chose. It's gorgeous, but not the standard 'Lucy' palette that we are used to seeing and have come to know you for! I cannot wait to see what you are doing with it! I feel some new Lucy inspirations coming in the near future!!!!


...how does one go about winding yarn into balls? Seems like they take up far less space that way.
