About Me

  • Hello! 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

I've not been to the Attic for a couple of weeks and I am absolutely in love with your new coastal colour scheme. I'll have to force myself to finish my big ripple before I let myself be tempted!
The Butterfly Box is a fantastic book...enjoy it, xx


Praying for good weather....

Hi Lucy - you must have read my mind with starting your ripple blanket! I bought a collection of english sea colours six months ago and have just decided it's time I made a start and looked at your blog to read the excellent tutorial again and was very pleasantly surprised to see you're starting another.
Good luck with it and enjoy your holiday!
Best wishes

Je vous souhaite de belles et bonnes vacances pour vous et votre famille. A bientôt de vous retrouver sur votre divin blog.
Bien à vous. Bises


Happy holidaying! Look forward to seeing your progress on your ripple. How many ripple blankets is that now?


Oh how lovely! I do hope you arrived safely and are now settled in and having a wonderful time. We are going to the south coast week after next, so I can get my sea fix (and see family, of course..) Loving the idea of a coastal ripple. xx

Cockney Blonde

Have a lovely trip, and just like me I pack my leisure kit before my clothes, lol, x

Oh what a lovely ripple blanket it's going to be.
Have a lovely break away with your family Lucy...I hope it gives you a chance to catch your breath you seemed to be busier than ever lately.
Blessings, Tracey xx


Have a fantastic time. Thank you so much for the link to your ripple blanket pattern and instructions---fantastic. My daughter and I are beginner crocheters. We love it but get fairly frustrated trying to follow patterns. I read through the post and understood everything! Also, thank you for providing US terms as well as we live in USA. Wish I could come to your studio for class in person. Someday.....have a lovely holiday. P.S. LOVE the yarn colors for your beach ripple blanket!



I remember that post, when you were arranging colours in the yarn shop - I suspected then you were putting together blanket packs. I hope you're planning to sell them :o)

Have a lovely holiday x


Have a lovely week with your loved ones and - fingers crossed - much blissful hooky time!

Lu Douglas

oh joy, what a lovely spot that is, the café has delicious food, and yes, just packing is almost enough to put Mothers off, but the reward at the end is soooo good. Always take MORE than enough yarn. You just never know how the mood might take you. happy days... Lu xx


Have a great time. Love the colours to your new ripple how restrained having wool for a year without breaking into it. Recently read secrets of the lighthouse by this author which was very good so I'm sure you will enjoy the butterfly box.


Lucky lucky you! And a new hooky project! No better place to start a Coastal Blanket :-) Have lots of fun!! xxxx


Wonderful, I love Dorset too, it's beautiful. I also love that feeling when the front door is closed and you can sink into the car. If you don't have it now, you'll have to do without it. I hope you all have a fantastic time. I'm very envious of your seaside break with crochet and magazines and a good book!

Have a lovely week at the sea with your family.
For your sea ripple blanket, you should maybe crochet some rows only in the back loops "to feel the waves with your hands" like this ripple


That blanket will smell of the seaside when you get back! We'll look forward to reading all about it on your return - have a wonderful time.
I too would like to know the colours you've chosen here - poor Lucy, you can't even go on holiday without being asked for something - sorry Luce! Have fun & forget all about us (for a week!). xx

Anne Dearle

I hope you and your family have a relaxing holiday. May the weather be kind to you. Looking forward to seeing your progress with your ripple quilt. Enjoy!

Jeanette in Illinois, USA

Fab-u-lous colors!!! They embody the beach, ocean, sky and all it's lusciousness!! I am going to hook myself one too, I cannot resist! Will you be able to share these colors, as I'm a bit perplexed with the greens...

Safe travels and I can't wait to have a vicarious jaunt to Dorset, how wonderful. You have all the essentials ready!
