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

That place is gorgeous!!! I wish the yarn cost nothing, then I would crochet the whole world of my own!! :D


I live in Bradford and don't visit as much as I should.


Now I know where I would love to die. :-)


Yes please! So want to make a rug. Looked at their website and will order when you list a pattern for a rug. I thought your coastal ripple blanket looked so good on the floor/pebbles. Just like a woolly rug. Am going to use your edges for my own ripple blanket that I made from a Sugar and Cream pattern book. Am looking forward to all your winter creations. And....thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication. YOU REALLY MUST WRITE A BOOK - "LUCY'S LIFE IN THE ATTIC"?? :)


Looks like a fab shop!
I'm on hold in the sun at the moment yet couldn't resist buying a load of yarn for an autumn blanket, and in 99deg heat too!


Oh my - eye candy for sure x


oow - gets's your head spinning, looking at all those beautiful colors. Definitely gives me ideas for fall crocheting!


OOOOooooooohhhh Lucy it looks lovely with all those beautiful, colourful yarns. I used to make rugs many years ago but not from conventional yarn like that ... think I may take a visit when up in the neck of the woods for Yarndale Xx lots of love Joy Xx


This place looks amazing!! Glad you had a good time there!

Take care Anne


It truly is a Yarnoholics Paradise. Project ideas are endless. Such beautiful colors. Thanks for taking us along. Wonderful project inspiration - as usual.

I often dream of starting a yarn shop with a coffee shop. I think it would be a grey place to "work", but not sure it would pay the bills!

Yarny heaven!!!! I could easily spend a day there!!! It must be great publicity for a store like that to have you, a yarn wizard, tour their store!!! Have a happy week!!!

Your first paragraph describing the atmosphere is devine...I know exactly what you mean about old buildings :). Can't wait to see what's in store for you with this new yarn!

What a fab place - rug yarn sounds wonderful - a big circular mandala rug would look fabulous on my wooden floors - think I need to order some!

Sounds like it couldn't have been a better day. What a wonderful place to have near. I look forward to your hooky adventures with this new yarn (and those spools look like they would last a while).


Oh my goodness,what a magical place,I wouldn't want to leave.The colours are just amazing,love the autumm one's.Shame we are such a long way from you.Happy creating,have blogged my chunky bag and blanket I made with your yarn packs.Hugs xx


Have enjoyed reading about your family and what they are unto, however good to see you have been having a bit of "YOU-YARN" time, especially would have loved to have seen the shiny little Lucy face as you drank in all those colours of yarn on the shelves (beautifully presented I thought)
Will be "super" interested to see what you come up with to use the carpet yarn.
Best wishes, J x thesewingwren.wordpress.com


Hi Lucy, I would like to send you na e-mail, but I did not find it in your blog. Could you please give it to me?
Many thanks.

It was great to see you again! You didn't waffle at all and you've inspired me to get blogging again, many thanks, Christine


Cooool. I know what i'm doing in the christmas hols :)


You didn't waffle at all!! It was lovely to see all your creations in the flesh so to speak and really heartwarming that you are still doing it for the love, with all your priorities in the right order.

Great day in a lovely building that's full of nostalgia and history. I'm so glad I was flukily back home in Bradford that day.

Thank you. xx

Winwick Mum

Wow, I would never have thought of buying rug yarn! What lovely colours, too - sure to inspire a whole new craze! xx


I may be a teensy bit jealous!


I loved that place 5 years ago and I bet it's amazing now! I used to travel from Bristol to Menston to see a crafty friend and we always used to visit this place. They moved down to Worcester 4 years ago and I miss the fabric & wool shops so much.
