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

Sounds like you had a perfect morning!!! Can't wait to see the big reveal on the mandalas!!!! Have a bight and happy weekend!!!

Melanie Wager

Like you I really enjoy sitting in my local coffee shop with an excellent cup of coffee and my knitting. I am always surprised by the people who come up and start talking to me about my knitting. Sometimes I want ME time but it is always a pleasure to share a passion with others. Thanks again for your great blog.


Love the photo and thank you, thank you, thank you because I suddenly have more hits on my blog that have come through your blog. don't know how it happens but very grateful.


I'm fairly new to your blog Lucy....I LOVE it. As others have said, it's a bright spot in my day, week, or whenever I get the chance to drop by. Your colour combinations are absolutely beautiful...you have a wonderful gift and I'm so glad you share it with others :) I've just ordered your Coastal kit and Cosy kit from your little shop. I'm so excited to get them and make a start. I'm going to make square throw rugs instead of blankets, and hope to give the Coastal throw to one of my besties, who can't crochet. The Cosy will be for me...the colours in that blanket are simply DIVINE!! Thank you for sharing your life and your talent with us. I'm glad you had a lovely spell in the coffee shop and sunshine. Big hugs from Downunder in Aussie land...Lynne xx


Went to Coopers during my Yarndale weekend- made the trip 'complete' somehow. Great that I can now relate to this post. hope the decision making wasn't too tedious but involved some exciting elements too. Keep smiling.

Lucy you really are a tonic,just to read your lovely blogs and getting an insight into your colourful world does my heart and soul good.......have managed to sew all my pesky ends in on my cosy blanket,so a bit glad of the break in the CAL otherwise would have carried on regardless hooking and had a huge amount of darning in to do at the end,thank you for all your hard work for us all!! Big Hugs!!😃xxxxxxxxxxx


Love your blog! Keep writting!!!


I can smell that delicious coffee and feel the warm sunshine on my face :)You have a glorious spot there.

Teresa Kasner

It made me happy to see you enjoying yourself as you deserve it so much. Although it was nice to share your studio, I think you are really going to love having the whole space to yourself. What a nice place to do your thing.
((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Hi Lucy
I have been following your blog for a long time now and love it very much. This week I saw your interview on craft daily programme on Sky channel. You were being interviewed at Alexander palace knitting and stitching show. Lovely to see and hear you! Great interview! Mandy :)


I love that, after my first visit to Yarndale this year, that I know exactly the sounds and smells you write of! We had a lovely afternoon at Coopers and the ladies made us feel instantly at home.

On a slightly different note, isn't it odd how comforting a wooden peg makes you feel? For me, it's like a miniature time machine, transporting me back to sun filled, lazy days helping my Mum and sometimes my Nanny to hang out the washing on a "good drying day" as they would say!


I don't comment on your blog a lot but I never miss checking it out. I absolutely LOVE it and really look forward to, and genuinely enjoy every one of your posts. It is definitely a bright spot in my day or week when I click on your blog and see that there is a new post. :) Thank you so much for sharing your life and love of color with us! I am deeply sorry about the difficulties you've had in your life lately and hope that you can get everything squared away and life set "right" again.. I'm looking forward to all your future posts, whenever they may be! Thanks again for everything!

As an American I had very little real knowledge of all that Yarndale truly is about and how much it does for so many.... My tiniest involvement came about as a desire to lend a helping hand for You Lucy to show my appreciation for all I have Iearned via your generous crochet sharing of patterns and tutorials so it was my pleasure to make bunting (last year) and a mandala this year... so when I read this post about the fundraising I was blown away and totally amazed by this event and the depth of its efforts to make Life better for so many!!!


For all that has gone on..while I have been living my life sorry...my goodness. You are my joy;) You have handled a lesson...as we all do...with accolades. Hang in there my Sweetie!!! Much love as always!!!;))))) xo


Your yarn pegs remind me of a pile of crayons--so cheery and begging to create something fun! If I had a studio like yours, I'd have to put a bed in it, because I'd be there so often I'd have to nap now and then! :) The post about Yarndale and the fundraising was very interesting; looking forward to more of that, as well as your surprise! Hope things are starting to settle and be a bit more sunny in your life these days.. xx

Debbie P.

Love the hair cut!! I hope your mom is doing well. Wish I had a place like your cafe where I live. It would be the ideal place to relax and ponder on life things :) Glad you had some happy time in your studio. Thanks for all the hard work you do.

Carol aka Dansnan

Glad you are starting to relax, love the yarn pegs. Finally did my Yarndale posts!

I enjoyed my visit to Coopers when I visited Yarndale last year.

Claire @ mrsbrownmakes

Coffee, colours, sunshine and space to think... how lovely. xx

Susanna McClellan

Enjoyed this post as all the others also. I began my Cozy Striped Afghan yesterday, but I decided to purchase my yarn locally as I wanted to start, but did not want wait for yarn to fly across the Atlantic all the way to Alabama. So, my colors maybe slightly different, but I am getting to play. This is my first crochet along, and I am excited! Wish I had a coffee shop to crochet in, but my comfy chair will do.


What a great way to spend a morning - we need a coopers this side of Yorkshire too!


Thank you for the scrummy post, Lucy! :)


Sounds bliss so cosy, love the yarny pegs too
