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.

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

actually astonishing post! So much of benefits as far as the Universal Contour Wrap is concerned.I really like your mail and I am waiting for your next item and anticipating some fantastic data available there.

Lucy! I found two sources of where to get your yarn colors!! I am so happy! Found a currency converter on line and willing to pay more for those colors not found in the U.S.! So more than pleased.

Cuteness! They're on my to do list.....



I have been missold some yarn :(
I have some Adriafil fiore yarn, (I should have Sirdar Crofter DK )and although it is very pretty not what I asked for.
As they are being rather unpleasant and not allowing me to return it, I am a novice crocheter and desperately need advice as to how I can make use of the yarn.
Please. please, please could you help with some crochet ideas?
Thank you most sincerely.

Ooo, I'm loving these little critters. Great Christmas stocking and Easter basket fillers for the grsndees, x


O, these are an absolute hoot! The bunnies too and I will be doing both for sure. Congratulations on your studio space...I've been away for a week and come back and ta-dah there is the studio! I am so happy for you!!! Enjoy your adventures so much! Hugs!


Oh wow! I ADORE owls and these are delightful! The rabbits are so lovely too.

Love the owl and the Easter bunny just what's needed to cheer up these long winter days that won't change to Spring. Vicki who posted her comment at 8.04 today, you need to check your facts. Lucy very clearly attributes the origin of the snowflake pattern in her tutorial to the originator, Mary Jane Protus. It is simply untrue to suggest that Lucy is passing this off as her own pattern without derivative acknowledgement. This raises the interesting question of when does a pattern change enough to become independent so to speak. None of us have the monopoly on crochet stitches and neither to some extent their combination but reworked, regrouped they do become individual and unique to the creator. I certainly try to attribute sources on my own blog and my sense is that Lucy and most other bloggers try very hard to do this too. There are some who don't as Lucy points out and it's rather unattractive although not always I suspect / hope deliberate. And the downside of that is that people genuinely willing to share can feel deterred from doing so which is sad. I have to say I love the fact that Lucy, you share so generously and freely. I've never encountered you plagiarising or deriving inspiration without acknowledgment. Hope your bruise gets better very quickly - amazing how painful such things can be. E x


Love these. I had found the owl pattern and loved it for the same reason as you. Visuals, not words and numbers. That's why I keep coming back to the attic. Thank you.


very cute! maybe I can find some "me"time tomorrow and make one or two....three?! wishful thinking I'm afraid! Tonight I'm making crochet bunnyrings for the yougest ones teacher so she'll look very easterly at the easter breakfast at school.

Ooh! I love owls and thanks for giving the pattern links. I also give credit to where I get patterns, although I still don't know how to put in a link as I'm new to blogging. Great blog.


Really sweet, will have to give it a whirl. Thanks for sharing. Hannapat


Thank you for sharing these wonderful patterns! I am making some now for my kids' Easter baskets. And thank you for clearing up the UK/US crochet terms. I was wondering abou that...


These are really cute and making them as gifts for friends must only add to the enjoyment of making them.


That owl is so stinkin' cute! I love the little tufts of yarn for his ears. I may have to hook one up for myself.
Hope your leg is feeling better! <3


I find it so funny that I read so many things on yarn and needles, and yet cannot do it myself. I love reading about it, the idea of doing it, but everytime I try knitting, it just goes so badly. Should I start with crocheting?


Lucy, I just love your total enthusiasm for crochet, and your colourful blog is a joy to visit on a cold snowy day!! You have rekindled my own interest in crochet and I bought the Womans Weekly knitting and crochet magazine and am now crocheting the bag featured in it. I had forgotten just how quickly items grow - I made loads of things when the kids were small but just drifted away from it. Thank you for the pleasure you have given this "senior citizen" and long may you continue to blog.

Hi, Lucy. Your owls and bunnies are adorable. So bright and funny that they simply make me smile looking at them. Thanks for the pattern.
Hope you're feeling much better these days. Come on spring!


Been a little bit since I've been to the Attic, but I loved catching up! Your studio looks fantastic, what fun to be above a cafe! We have had a cold spring as well. Plus some snow too. These owls and bunnies are so cute!! I wish I didn't have so many projects left to do. Thanks again for your great posts.


I love these...what a great Easter pressie. I've only just discovered your blog and your beautiful colourful crochet....very inspiring. I will look forward to reading future posts. Your photos are so clear and colourful too, what sort of camera do you use?
