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

You made my day. Such beautiful scenery, loved
the pictures of the lake. I am in my 80's and
love to see how others enjoy their lives.
Happy knitting to you. Love to see more.


I absolutely love your site! So encouraging and beautiful. You have no idea how looking at the beautiful pic tures you post have such a positive affect on me personally. All your work is totally wonderful and inspiring. The beautiful colors just gorgeous. Thank you so much. You are truly a marvelous person to share with everyone in such a good way.


Wow! Where do you get your yarn from? And in a big box too? I don't know how you do it, but you make a normal room into a bright colorful place. Its incredible!


Hi! Where did you get your big box of yarn from? I'm always so envious when you post your pretty pictures of yarn balls... I never know where to begin when I think of ordering some!!


I just ordered a bag...Weeeee! Can't wait to fill it with wooly yarn!


Massive, massive jealous of that enormous box of wool! xxoo


Have no fear, spring will come! It came very late over the pond here in North Carolina. Then one day it rained, and like magic, everything turned green in two days. I've never seen anything like it! I wish I could attach a picture to show you how green everything is to give you a little encouragement! :-) p.s. I love your neck warmer in the newest post!!


How lovely sceneries! Can't wait for spring to be here in Finland. And the box of yarn, wow! :)


Hello, I like your blog. It is so original.
I am from the Czech Republic. I am reading that it is surprisingly chill with you. In the Czech Republic was Spring weather last week. But this week is Summer weather. The temperature was about 20 degrees.

I only recently stumbled upon your wonderful blog, and I can't say enough of how thrilled I am. I savor reading it like you do your beloved Country Living...I must be cozy under a blanket (in my pj's) with a warm cup of tea, and the Littles need to all be tucked in bed....I want no interruptions! ;) I have gone back to your first post and have been slowly working my way forward, taking in every glorious photo. I live in New England on a little gentlemen's farm with my very large brood of Littles...wishing it was the Dales of Yorkshire. I have had a love affair with your beautiful country since I was a little girl of 9 years old, watching episodes of All Creatures Great and Small with my grandparents on Saturday afternoons. I have never had the chance to visit England, but I soak up every small piece of it I can find here in the US, and your blog with its wonderful pictures has delighted me. Someday I hope to visit England, but for now I'm content looking forward to visiting each night through your blog. Thank-you for sharing your life and lovely country with us.

Hoots should read photos. I do not understand this auto complete on IPad. Doesn't read my mind right when my fingers go wrong!

Jennifer Crewe

Your blog is so interesting, your colors stimulating and your hoots make me homesick. Glad you are feeling more settled after your holiday and springtime always helps. I love the way you gave new life to your sideboard. A Yarndale bag will be winging its way to Australia. I will enjoy using it and wishing I could be there.

Eva Pevlor

So glad for you blog-brightens my day very much. so happy you are feeling better. We have had an
unusually cold spring in Southern Indiana and I am beyond ready for some sunshine.

I love your cabinet. I love your refreshing ideas. I recommend you blog to crocheter's who I come in contact with.

I so enjoy your beautiful photos. I would love to visit your Country.
Looking forward to your next post.

Yarndale bag ordered. Tickets paid for. Can't wait..... Coming with three work friends for a girlie day out.

Jo Roberts

How can you sleep with a box of wool like that downstairs! My head would explode. A lovely happy post Lucy, glad you are plodding on with creativity. Jo x

The cupboard looks great. And a huge box of yarn - SWOONING!

I can't wait until my bag arrives. Eeeeek!


Hi Lucy, love your colourful blog and pictures of Yorkshire, I tried emailing you via email address on paypal site but it bounced back, I'm just hoping you received the coffee donation I sent, if not please can you let me know


All that yarn looks so exciting Lucy. I saw the article about your studio in the 2nd ed. of Crafty magazine today. I have loved watching your space coming together, its beautiful and really special that its always so light too x Enjoy! x Penny


Big box or yarn...mmmm....great to hear that Yarndale is going so well. Still can't decide to exhibit or not...
