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 knew you'd tame the blanket.


which yarn are you using for your ripples ? Stylecraft?
by the way.. I'm almost finishing my copy of your granny stripe blanket !!!! It's sooooooooo beautiful!


Please don't ever stop blogging!! I love your blog so much. I put it on the computer in the morning and at odd moments throughout my day I treat myself to little snippet of color and creativity from your attic. It usually takes me two days to finish a post and then I wait in eager anticipation for the next one. Thanks for taking the time to post!! :)


Your home looks so cozy with all of the crocheted blankets that you make.


Lovely photos; your post made me so happy today!

Blessings for your vacay!

Hi, I've been watching what you're doing for a while and felt so envious!! Last weekend I started trying to crochet and made a couple of Granny Squares....actually mine were more like rounds...I've practised and now I (had the wool today) am starting on the Granny Stripe...I'm so excited! I Posted about my starting and mentioned you on my blog if you are interested:

....I started blogging as a challenge this year and now chrocheting is the next...thanks so much for your bright colours and 'full of life' blogs. Joan


Lucy, when hooking your granny squares. did you work 3 doubles one chain and 3 doubles , in each corner. ( US terms). Love your colorful blog.


Ive just finished my ripple and need to edge it too! The only problem is I dont know how to straighten out the waves? How do you do it lucy?


Your blanket is brilliant.I have a very similar rose in my garden. Did you say knitting? Not crochet? I love your posts but this one ended on such a cliffhanger. Don't leave us wondering too long.


Beautiful post. Love the photos.

You've turned us all into stalkers, Lucy! :D
I make sure I come by the Attic atleast once every day! I check during the day - my time and check during the day - your time! - that's pretty much all the time :D :D :D
Lotsa love and hugs from India


I started reading your blog about a month ago - it's wonderful. I am a knitter who can do a bit of crochet. Seeing your projects is inspiring me to pick up a hook again. LOVE the granny squares and your ripple blanket is just pure fun...

What is your favorite yarn(s) to use for your projects? You pick such great colors! Thanks for the inspiration.........


Thankyou for this lovely splash of colour in my day! My WIP is a granny square blanket for my son. He picked the colours-shades of muted blues and greys.Your projects keep me inspired to finish it!


Looking forward to seeing this edging you speak of! :)


Lucy, you always make me smile. Your blog brings colour, happiness and inspiration - things I desperately need on a dull rainy weekday in Scotland. Thank you x

This kind of surroundings makes us inspired to do more things that we want to do. Clear sky so that we can walk around with this lovely flowers.
