Lucy what size hook did you use and how many stitches to start please I would love to make one for my dolls bed.


These small blankets look great. Will you share your patterns? I would especially like the ripple blanket pattern. I am making small blankets for donations to the Humane Society.

I've been dancing around your bog this morning, drinking in all the beautiful colors and patterns on your Flikr portfolio. I feel uplifted just looking at them.

Thanks for sharing your talents.


I love the edging on the mini ripple. any chance of a tutorial? Maybe Pretty please?
I fall in love with crochet every time I come to your blog!

I Love the picture of the big ripple blanket and it mini me so adorable. It's no wonder you've become attached to them.


Hej! Your website is so beautyful and i really love your ripple doll blanket. I just started to crochet. How can I do such a ripple blanket??? Can you help me?



That is so cute! In fact I'm currently being sneaky and copying it :-) for the last ripple round did you just chain 2 and go up the sides and round or did you do the sides separate?


These are beautiful! I always come to your blog if I'm feeling a little blue. Cheers me up no end with the beautiful colours.


Your blankets are now showing on a blog in Oz - http://vintagericrac.blogspot.co.uk/

They look wonderful anyway, but even better when shown with the dolls and other accessories.


Vraiment très très jolies!!!

Lucy - they are simply divine! Do you think they would work as placemats if they were a tiny bit smaller and used a cotton or the cotton/bamboo yarn?

I think you just invented the best crocheted Mug rugs I could imagine! Great!


Lovely work for an excellent cause XX

Hi Lucy, I just had to tell you how this afternoon, at a workshop I was running, we were talking about crochet and blogs, and someone mentioned Lucy and 3 out of the 5 of us knew exactly who Lucy was! They didn't say Lucy from Attic 24, just Lucy! And we all live on the south coast of Western Australia. We all feel as though you are a mutual friend and love your friendly blog.
Best wishes from Down Under, Liz


Thank you for sharing your wonderful life. Would love to see the "Befores and Afters" around your house. I do hope you are keeping a journal of your conversion. With 3 young children and your creative nature plus the 100 year old house your life is perfectly busy.
Love your Little Squares Blanket. Way back in the 80's when I was in college I bought a roll of gift wrap paper and a box of staitionary with almost an identical print of your blanket. The pattern of the little squares was kind of embossed and I fell in love with it forever. Somewhere I still have a piece of the giftwrap and the stationary box. Thanks for the memories Ha!...I always thought I would make something with such pattern. Finally I've got the money and maybe time (I am a craftaholic, to do it). I will comeback by your blog again to see the parade of your projects. I will have a cup of tea "with you". I don't drink coffee. Caffeine stopped agreeing with my body since my first pregnancy (the child is 32 years old now) I miss my cozy morning with Darjeeling or Earl Grey tea...Aaaah...the price of motherhood. (Well worth it though). How much is a good cup of Coffee in Northern England nowadays?

Those are JUST adorable! I think you need to make one for Little Lady's doll! Thanks for popping over to my blog and leaving a sweet comment. You really do deserve a lot of credit for sparking this colorful blog movement. I know that you got me inspired to start mine and other have been inspired by mine and so it goes.. I bet you're responsible for at least hundreds of new blogs! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


So incredibly awesome! I love miniature stuff and your doll blankets are amazing! I always love looking at your photos.. You definitely have a gift and talent for color and they perk up my days! Thanks so much!


Cutesome squared! I can't decide which one I like the best.


These are so cute!! I really like your blog and I got so much inspiration from it. You are the best of the best! <3


so lovely! certain to make someone very happy... what is it about tiny things that makes them so much cuter than regular sized things?


I do believe that image of little ripple with big ripple is indeed my new favorite thing. It's beautiful! xoxo


Greetings from Arkansas, USA!

These are too cute! I have been hooking for more than 30 years now and love to see what's up and coming. You are doing really great work; keep it up, and I'll keep reading!


I used to crochet, but when I moved to Colorado I began knitting when I discovered the pattern instructions here are different than in the UK and I just kept making lots of mistakes!

And then I discovered your blog and I have to admit to falling in love with crochet all over again! And your color work is just gorgeous!

I miss the UK. I used to live in Scarborough and loved North Yorkshire so reading your blog and seeing your photos makes me happy.

Do you have instructions for the ripple pattern? I would love to get a copy if you are sharing!

Thanks, Wendy
