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.

Dearest Lucy,

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful creative spirit. I have been following your site for over a year now. You have inspired my last two creations. Cleaning out my left over stashes. I wish I lived a little closer. Hoping one day to make it to your little slice of Heaven across the sea.



so cute rabbit :)


they turned out nicely! so cheerful :)

So darn cute... those bunnies are screaming "HAPPY EASTER"!! :)


Thank you for the links to the crochet pattern sites. I'm always looking for new ways to use up scraps of yarns with multiple bright colors. Very cheerful!


Oh, these are sooo cute! I have never crocheted a little stuffy animal, but the owl may just "hook" my interest.
I didn't comment on your studio announcement, and now I wish I had. Sometimes I don't comment on my favorite blogs, as there are already so many commenters, I figure one comment more or less doesn't much matter. But I guess I know that every comment matters, really, doesn't it? And so, I want you to know that I was thrilled and excited to see your new studio space, and consider the new creative possibilities that will open up for you now. And once again, I am reminded of the magic that occurs in the creative life of mothers as we tiptoe amongst our family life (and providing for the needs of our loved ones) and our own private creative world (finding time and inspiration to nurture our own artistic therapy). It's really unique....
Brava, Lucy, for stepping out into your own place, in your own way.


HI Lucy
I have been reading your blog for about 5 years now and following all your adventures from Lurkland - sounds a bit sinister, doesn't it? - with the very occasional comment. I decided to bring a bit of colour into my house this winter, and am making a patchwork granny blanket with an Attic24 pack of colours. Am thoroughly enjoying how quickly it is growing using the join-as-you-go method, and also the colours, previously having been a white-on-white-texturey type. So this was a big step for me! I am excited for your studio. Hope you all have a happy Easter in Atticland and thanks for being a cheerleader of colour and small pleasures. Liz

To Twolittleflowers...I had the same problem! I re-read the pattern and I think it is actually written in American terms so dc is actually a UK treble. I've tried it again with trebles and it seems to be lying lovely and flat! x


Complimenti è tutto bellissimo... colorato... allegro...sicuramente sarai una persona solare.


I have just found your blog and wanted to say u love it and you are so talented :)


Lucy, I started bunny making last night and wondered if you could help me troubleshoot? I am using a 4mm hook on this yarn (http://www.sirdar.co.uk/yarns/fashion/Calico_DK_F028) which calls for a 4mm needle. My tummy rings are rippling and waving when I do the 3 tr circle in the 3rd ring. The waving starts in the 2nd ring, not so bad tho, but in the 3rd ring it is horrendous. I understand that it might have something to do with the yarn:hook ratio - but I am using the recommended needle size??? Thanks a bunch, Keri


Those are the most adorable hooky animals I've seen!


HOla, LUCY!! Me encanta el conejo, tan colorido, es precioso!!
Feliz Pascua!! Besos y a tejer!!!

Hi Lucy, the owl and bunny you made are too cute for words! You must have had so much fun making them and I bet your children will love playing with them too. I hope that your leg will get better quickly. What a shock for that to happen. I can't imagine snow and ice as it is scorching hot and sunny here in New Zealand at the moment. Congratulations on finding your home away from home for your crocheting projects. It looks like it is going to be a wonderful cosy, warm, colourful and happy place. Best wishes, Rose. Hugs xxx

Sooo cute! I have white bunny statues but these guys would certainly add a touch of colour! My hooky is still at "chain stitch" level though so I think it'll be bunting for me this year! Wishing you a very special Easter break for you and your family! ♥♥♥

Linda from Boston

A big thank you for leading us to these adorable critters. The tutorials are top notch and so easy to follow. I have made two owls and one bunny. My housework is suffering!!! Hope you are feeling better.

Oh here's a link for cute bunny jars.

Sue Rostron

thanks for your uplifting, happy blog. It often makes my day.
Hey I have not been organised enough to scan a picture but one of our NZ Women's magazines had a very cute Easter project I thought of when I saw your jar of Easter eggs.
They brought little ceramic bunnies from second hand stores, hot-glue gunned them to a jar lid and then painted the lid and the bunny white.
Very cute.
Sadly all the ceramic bunies have hopped away from my local op shops (opportunity shops - the kiwi second hand stores) and even from our $2 stores. Never mind perhaps I'll find some in time for next Easter!

Kristi Myers

These are great patterns and very easy to follow! Thank you so much for taking the time to share with us!


lovely greats from germany and many thanks for this wonderfull blog, i like it!

Lately, I've been obsessed with crocheting bunnies and owls. So, thanks a bunch for this fun & inspiring post.


Vicki, I think it's a bit rough to be calling Lucy 'shameless' and such. Lucy shares so much of her work - for free. I think she is a kind and generous soul who has made it clear that she despises plagiarism and artists who do not give credit where credit is due. I trust that and don't think she would copy another's work and claim it as her own. That is a big call for someone to make. I also think that if you have an issue with something on the blog that it is more respectful for you to contact Lucy and discuss it privately. You obviously follow Attic24 and have no doubt benefited from Lucy's free tutorials. Trying to shame someone publicly isn't very nice.


Thank you for sharing Lucy, I love the bunny!.....now where's my crochet hook...


To Tomasina Tittkemouse. Yes, Lucy says she credits it to Mary Jane Protus, but she says she 'tweaked it to suit her way of thinking' -this does not make it Lucy's original pattern so it should not appear as one on Ravelry. Also, nowhere does Lucy say she had the permission of MJ Protus to produce a tutorial for her pattern, and if she didn't have permission she should not have written a tutorial. A pattern appearing for free on the Internet does not mean you can reproduce it as you like having simply added or removed a stitch or two.
In the case of the 'spot on' pattern, Lucy didn't acknowledge Edie Eckman's at all, but we know Lucy has the book on borders, so clearly the idea for the pattern came from there but Lucy chose not to acknowledge the source of her inspiration.
