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

Delicioso Lucy.Me encantó!!


Why not wear it out in public? We wear them any chance we get here in central Texas where the winters are mild.


That's absolutely adorable! Such a lovely idea too - a wearable blanket. If it was me though, I probably wouldn't end up confining it to the house - not when it's that pretty! I love the colours you've used, and Baby Cashmerino is just scrumptious. xx


You are so inspiring, next year is going to be my learn to crochet year - should be heaps of fun.

Sylvia Frazer

Great idea Lucy. I still have the one I crocheted and wore lots in the 70's in a box somewhere!

Lynne Gill

How deliciously gorgeous this is, Lucy! And I fully understand those feelings when you dive into a new project - I lie away at night sometimes with colours and ideas filling my mind. And OH! That saturated colour! I need to be making bangles in those colours - I seem to have got stuck in a mainly Autumn Woodland colour scheme ...see, I'm off on one now and it's all your fault!! Happy Hooking, I shall be Serenely Stitching! Lx


Oh wow is looking so gorgeous, I just love it :)

Fab-U-lous Lucy. As always your projects are wonderful. I love the colours and the added interest with the spaces on alternate rows....it's looking gorgeous already :0)

Lucy this looks just perfectly lovely and I cannot wait to see it. Everything you do inspires me - I have picked up my crochet needle again this week and finished a little scarf for one of my grandpeeps and I am so pleased I am back crocheting again - thanks to your inspiration. Thanks so much Lucy big hugs to you. I was intending to try to come over to see you this weekend but I had to look after a loved one who is still a bit on the poorly side. Hopefully I will get across next year. Lots of love as always


Hi Lucy
Looking forward to seeing the end result.
I know exactly the feeling you are talking about when you are starting something new, so much just bursting to get out that you just can't get it done quickly enough !
I have just finished making a hood and scarf from Simply Crochet, and as I changed the pattern a bit it meant a little bit of number crunching first - not my strength ! In the end, like you, I just got on with it.
Yet to blog about it but hope to in the next couple of days.
Enjoy ponchoing !

Love those vibrant stripes and what a brilliant idea!!!!!


Cool, what lovely colours. Only 30 minutes ago I managed to finish adding a fringe to a poncho I crocheted for my little girl, I can't wait to see her little face on Xmas day. I also look forward to seeing yours progress.

I have been working on small things of late -little crochet owls at the moment - and I also feel the urge to start on a larger project, but not sure what just yet! I have made 3 ripple blankets, so a bit rippled out:)

Fab! I love it all! The flowers, the carrot cake,yum, and the poncho. Very handy and cosy, One year, I made all the girls and in the family one for Christmas, great to wear around the house. Look forward to seeing it finished.


Oh it's so lovely! And the sound of Baby Cashmerino is heavenly! I'm sure when it's done it will be like slipping into a poncho of wonderfully colourful butter!

Hooray for the numbers working out and can't wait to see more of this!

Oh how yummy, Lucy! What a fantastic winter project! I wondered if you might post about its beginnings and show a peep of poncho loveliness and you have! I've been looking longingly at Angie's ponchos on Le Monde de Sucrette over the last year and toyed with making an adult version of her lovely children's ones. This may just push dreamy notion into yarny reality! Please do post your method - your patterns are the best! Like you I seem t have a bit of a blanket yarn surplus leftover from assorted projects. - here is its destiny! E xx

Paula Dunne

Wonderful colours! Love the flowers too!


Oh wow - it looks so snuggly already. I love new crochet projects - I have to force myself to weave in the ends of the old projects before starting new fresh ones with beautiful new yarn!


How terrible to have such a huge leftover stash. Such good fortune that you have a Plan. I can completely identify with the excitement at the start of a project. Can't wait to see how it progresses, I love ponchos and shawls and things for draping about oneself. The little flowers are so pretty, no doubt that will be gorgeous too. Hope you have a good week Lucy.


Great idea Lucy it seems that poncho's are definitely in at the moment, I nearly bought a pygama type one today in Matalan but this is such a better alternative, a great stash buster too:)

Courtney Laube

I'm just curious... when you say BIG I'm picturing sitting on the couch in a puddle of delicious blanket... though I never sit without my hooks... so my question is, are you going to add in sleeves or slits for slipping your arms out to work? Or is my imagination running away with me? :)


Tis beautiful, as are all the colorful things you make Lucy. <3

Andrina T

I knew it was a poncho! I had one as a girl and loved it. :) So what are the odds you might write up the how-tos? That right angled corner looks a wee bit tricjy, and I think I don't recognize the stitch. I know some of your hooky projects are just dreamt up, so maybe you can just steer us to the pattern that inspired you? I'm sure it will bring you much snuggliness for days to come!


What a great idea. I can't wait to see more. The colors are beautiful, too.



L♥VE it!! :) xxx
