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

How funny I feel like you've been teaching me for years. One day I get to a workshop!!

Carolyn Jackson

I too would love to be in your workshop Lucy, a long way from NZ, guess I will have to wait for the pattern. I am sure it must be such a wonderful day to meet you and all the other ladies and finish the day with a bower bird, they all look so lovely. Cheers Caro NZ


A little haven of yarn and fun!

Well done you. Such an achievement. I wish I still lived in Bradford so could pop into the studio. Maybe one day I'll make it to a workshop, x


Fantastic Lucy, I'm pleased they have taken off for you. The birds are brilliant and such a great project. Lovely post. Karen xxx


Can you please move to the United States! I would love to attend one of your workshops. I love your blog and visit often. Your work is so beautiful. I am sure your ladies had the most wonderful time!


OH, how wonderful. Congratulations! :)


Congratulations on the rip-roaring success of your 2nd workshop. The birds are all glorious :)


Hi Lucy. I am so glad I have booked for a place in July. It looks really fun and professional at the same time. I expect I'll be totally nervous at the class too so don't worry you're not alone in that department. You could so make a career out of your talent for craft and writing. You must get into writing books too. I love your blog. It is always so cheery and interesting. I am so pleased for you. You will go from strength to strength I am sure. Have a wonderful, sunny weekend. Love Lesley.


Your post makes me smile. I'm so happy for you that you can teach and so many others like to come to you for the workshops. I didn't have a doubt at all. Your tutorials are so good and clear and your stories at your weblog are always interesting and written in a good atmosphere.
I wish you good workshops to come in the upcoming months.

Lucy I want to let you know that you are on my 'Bucket List'! When I get to England, one of the things I would like to do is take one of your classes! It would be so amazing to meet you and crochet with you! I hope you are have spring weather. We still have cold and snow, but spring is always close by when you have beautiful colours to crochet with!
Have a lovely weekend!


The blog, study, Yarndale, the column in Simply Crochet, workshops ... you realize? You've become a PROFESSIONAL with all the letters! For when a retrospective? Something like "There was once a happily married housewife with three young children who lived in an old Victorian house .." etc., in the style of "A Coat Story" (December 2013, remember?). Maybe for the next anniversary of Attic 24 ...? Again, congratulations on your accomplishments, and a big hug from this corner of the world. VERA (Buenos Aires)

I don't crochet...I'm a knitter...but know a little crochet....and I sure wish that I lived "across the pond" so that I could take your workshop!! Isn't it wonderful to spend time with others who are passionate about the same things that you are!!!


Looks like a wonderful day of hooky goodness, so pleased it's going well and you are enjoying it so much, I love those little birdies

I wish I could follow this workshop, but I live in the Netherlands. I'm crocheting your granny stripe blanket at the moment.It's lovely to see how all the colours match together. Thank you for your inspiring blog. Do you think you will put the tutorial of this bird on your blog? I have also some plans to make your flower heart published in Simply Crochet. Thanks again an good luck! Barbara


It sounds awesome !


Lucy, If I didn't live on the other side of the world (Melbourne, Australia) I would be at your workshop in a heartbeat! I am not the least bit surprised that you are a sell out success! I am a beginner crocheter and learned of you through a newsletter I subscribe to called "tangled yarns" (www.tangledyarns.com.au)

You have caused me to fall in love with crochet. Your blog and patterns are beautiful and inspiring and the way you write so warm and engaging.

Visiting your site and checking out what you're up to are special things I do for myself when i need to be "lifted" out of my day for a few moments :)

And I'm so glad you had fun doing it!


Oh isn't it the BEST feeling? When the teaching and making is also accompanied with cackling (and cake) it's as good as intravenous chocolate. HUrrah for holding workshops Lucy xx


I wish I still lived in Skipton, your workshops sound like fun

Makes a world laboratory Lucy, to gather from around the world!!


Lucy, you make a grey day colourful.
And sometimes i wish i still lived there.

Brilliant to inspire others! You have inspired me to encourage my Friends of the Park Group to yarn bomb! I have just made my first pompom!!

Merja Laine

I ment that you find me in fb by my name > private mail that way please. Another thought: where can I find information about your workshops? Could be nice to visit you on my holiday next summer. Merja Laine
