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 live in the U.S. and just recently discovered your blog. I am AMAZED by your gorgeous crochet creations and am in awe of your wonderful talent for design.

I learned to crochet as a little girl, and have dabbled in it a bit here and there throughout my adult life (I'm 42), but your blog has made me want to crochet like a mad woman! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your colorful style, and wish I could redo my entire house so that I could make similar items and have them fit with the decor.

As things are, I have a deep burganday-colored sofa and chair (new) and neutral beige/tan carpet (also new), and mostly darker green, beige and creamy yellow paint colors in the rest of the house, with the same carpet throughout.

I cannot tell you how much I prefer the cheery colors you favor, and wish I could do the house all over again! Unfortunately, it will be many years before I can redecorate, as we have just done so over the last year. You have so inspired me, however, that I think I may try to re-create your beautiful masterpieces using deeper colors and earth tones, and see if they might still fit in with my current color scheme.

Last night, I did a swatch of your ripple blanket pattern, which worked up wonderfully. Your instructions are so clear, and all I had to do to "translate" them in American English was to change "treble crochet" to "double crochet." I think I may attempt a lovely ripple blanket as my first Attic 24 project.

Thank you so much for rekindling my love of crochet. I look forward to enjoying your blog for many years to come. God Bless.

I love the way you present your adopted county in such a lovely way. Dorset's loss!!!
Many thanks for the BBC link I really enjoyed seeing the variety which Yorkshire has to offer.


I LOVE Malham :D We once stayed at the campsite at the bottom of the falls. It was magical. I would love to return there again with small people!

Lucy, what a lovely trek to the Cove! And to see a bit of the Dales. I am reading some books by Gervais Phinn about his years/stories of being a County School Inspector in the Dales, and he describes the region, but my wee imagination can't keep up well with picturing it, so seeing a glimpse of part of the Dales is a help to me. And Phinn's books are so good...easy, warm, fireside reading. Bless you and your family, Lucy, and congrats on your Blog Award! Your writing, crocheting, talents, pictures, etc., are as lovely as you!


I love your blog so much. It makes me want to visit your little corner of the world!!

OoOh we holiday every November in Malham :)
I'm glad you like it as much as we do. Did you know that the last Harry Potter was filmed there and up on Malham Tarn?

Such a lovely, out of the way place. Thanks for the tour.


This post brought back some lovely memories - I have photos of my boys climbing the boulders at the base of the cliff wall when we were camping nearby. They were probably 4 and 5 years old. It was a great holiday, one of those paddling and throwing stones into water sort of young family holidays that don't quite cut it now that they are 10 and 12! Thanks for bringing those memories into focus x


It's a fantastic place isn't it? I went there a few years ago with hubby and,our then old,golden retriever,but sadly she wasn't able to walk that far,so I had to wait at the bottom while hubby walked right up to the cove and then climbed up and walked on the huge stones along the top.I'll never forget that magical place. :0)

This has taken me back to my childhood and as I now live in the SW of England it's a lovely reminder of my Northern roots. Wonderful how Malham never changes, you're right time had stood still.

This post is so beautiful like everything you do
Thank you.


Such beautiful pictures. You live in a very pretty part of the world. :)


I remember someone posting a link to your blog on Facebook about a month ago and I've been checking it out ever since. I live in Michigan in the US and I've enjoyed reading your blog. It's so beautiful where you live! I've never seen that color green in my life! People here would kill to live where you do. Thanks for sharing your life with random strangers across the globe!
