Hi Lucy
One of my favourite spots in Yorkshire and the world!. I too spent many happy hours there as a child on picnics as did my children. Passed there yesterday in our camper van and the bunting is still there. xxx


lovely place! Made all the more fantastic with your tiny yarn bomb! Bravo!


I love your little tent hideaway! What great yarn-bombing.... can u imagine yarn bombing like this on every adventure you have with your family. what a surprise for you to find later or even better for one of us to stumble on and think WOW that reminds me of Attic 24!!


Not sure about yarn bombing in the countryside, it doesn't need such embelishments. ( what if an animal ate it and it got stuck in its gut?) it does make a good photo but then take it away - country code and all that...
I do love Urban yarn bombing GREAT!


lucy... I LOVE the yarn bomb idea!! Hmmmmm... need to keep granny squares/triangles on hand at all times? I live in the country & do a lot of "adventure walks". Might start this idea & surprise my farmer husband with yarn. :) jenn


I love your blog, Lucy. It always makes me smile. I so agree with your comment in another post about the memories you are creating for your children. They are very lucky to have a Mama like you.
Thank you for creating such a vibrant, happy space on the web.


How fabulous, you really feel the happy, relaxed atmosphere in your lovely photos and I LOVE the yarnbomb!
those are exactly the kind of urges I get, so it's awesome to see another yarnbomber in action :D
I hope it stays there!

Langstrothdale, my most favourite place in the world! Many happy memories for my husband who played there as a child and for us both as a couple and with our children. I live in cambs but have spent many very happy times in this exact spot- thank you x


What a lovely post. I've really enjoyed reading all this sunshine bank holiday love in blogland these last few days. I love your idea of putting frankfurters in a thermos for a picnic - brilliant! x



I'm so excited, this time next week we'll be enjoying family holiday time in the Yorkshire Dales . . . hoping the sun shines!

happy just doing

Oh Lucy, I love your pics and it's a fab place but please please please take your plastic home with you! Yarn bombing in context is a very enlivening thing - but not in our wonderful and unsullied countryside. If I read it's been taken down, if only for the sake of our wildlife, it'd make my day!

Love the yarn bomb, Lucy! and it looks so lovely there. I've been humming and haa-ing (excuse me while I invent a word there!) over getting a sun tent like that, and you've decided me, it's got to happen! xx


I love Hubberholme. We spent a week near Buckden 24 years ago just after we got married, then visited the area again for my husbands 30th birthday and again 5 years ago. We are definitely due another visit soon.... I'll look out for your triangle...maybe it'll have friends!


Wonderful day, wonderful pictures, wow.

Looks like a perfect day!It was a holiday weekend here in the States(Memorial Day weekend)and the kick off to grill/picnic season.We did dogs as well.Finished some hooky WIP's(a neck roll pillow,with the swirly pattern),no yarn bombing though...yet.lol Love the pic of the blanket on the rocks,good enough to frame!


Sorry I didn't make it clear in my comment above that it is the crochet bombing that I think is littering.


Hello dear Lucy. I love reading your blog, love your colourful writing,
love your photos, love how you encourage so many to crochet with your contagious enthusiasm! And recently you've written about you and your family's Sunday outings. It's obvious that the countryside gives you joy. So this post has me confused. Just as you and your family enjoyed the pristine loveliness of the riverside, so shouldn't others who come along afterwards? I think we all are meant to be stewards of our world around us.

Hi There, What a wonderful idea to leave a bunting on the fence!!! Just to say, Hey!!
Have a wonderful week!!!


Love the yarn bombing ! BUT make sure the sheep can't eat it and get sick :(

Kate - The Garden Bell

Now you know how much I adore you. But even more now that I found out you love the HEINZ. It's the only ketchup to have. What a fun day and I think the sun tent is such a clever idea. Ok, now I'm hungry for a "dog" and it's only 9am. Hope to be back in the swing real soon.

Barbara de Bruin-Karnekamp

Absolutely stunning pictures... What a great outing... I would love to do something like that someday!
Have a great day, Lucy!

how lucky to be able to escape to the country so completely!!! and how well organized for such travels you all are!!!!! thanks for taking me along with you! (All i've been able to yarn bomb lately has my stop sign and the Yak at our downtown art gallery---I love that you did some rural bombing beauty!)


yarnbombing! such a rebel!


We call this type of stream a 'run' where I come from and we like to picnicn right out on the rocks. You are 'da bomb' for yarn bombing the fence!


oooh Lucy how i love you're picnick-story's soooo much....it really makes my wanna grab my kids and hubby, get in the car and drive to the nearest river:)
Love Theetje
