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'm 9 (closing in on 10) colors in - so only 20 rows so far for me! I'm using my 'Coastal Colors' yarn (instead of doing the ripples) and I'm VERY PLEASED with how it is looking so far!
I will begin a multi-color one after the holidays, but I'm enjoying working on an afghan that isn't so 'girly' for a change *grin*


I can't wait for my blanket to cover my legs! Loving all the different variations of colours!


Your blanket is looking fabulous :) I was very happy to see my wicker chair with my blanket here - thank you for sharing it! xxx Kathryn


Thanks for the reassurance Julie. I'm hoping I can sort it out with the border, but am beginning to think it's too bad for that.
Jacky - it's got wider - I think I'm confused about how many stitches there should be - 198 in the foundation chain, which makes 195 to work on? sometimes I have had 65 clusters and sometimes 66, plus the extra bits on the edges. Currently I am on a second cluster row. I have managed to make it 64 clusters in the first row [x3 = 192] + 2 at each end = 196 stitches which sounds rightish if I can keep it right for the second cluster row. Then I lose a stitch by skipping one at each end of the first plain treble row - going down to 194. Is that how it works out?? At the moment, it's just getting bigger and bigger!

Jacky Russell

Liz - have you got the same number of treble clusters in each row of them, or is your work getting wider/smaller as you go? I think you should have 196 stitches from memory, if you have the right number of stitches then you should be reasonably straight along the sides. There is one row where you miss a stitch, at the end of the first row of trebles above the clusters. I miss the last but one stitch, this helps keep the edge straight. Hope this is clear, if not, someone please correct me!

Thank you Lucy, it's v kind of you to post the next rows so we can enjoy our Sunday hooky :-) I really love how this section looks, great job! I hope you enjoyed your sunny family walk, I'll pop back later :-) Love Jo xxxxx

Daughter and I are telling ourselves that the Wobbly Edge will disappear once we add the edging strip. It usually does!

Mandy Mills

Thanks Rona will order 2packs did you use 4mm hook xx


Am I the only person in the crochet world who cannot crochet this with straight edges? I have a severe case of Wobbly Edge Syndrome. I'm taking Lucy's advice and trying to embrace the individuality of it, but it is vexing me that no matter what I do, I CANNOT keep the sides straight.... am on point of giving up and turning it into a cushion cover or scarf, like I had to the granny stripe. Does anyone else suffer from this? and if not, what is the trick? I follow the tutorial but still Wobble.

Molly Conboy

Thank you Lucy, I will hopefully be getting back to mine today, I'm at row 95 and have done none all week, between making hedgehogs and owls lol x

judith rigg

Enjoy your walk, lovely sunshine here on the Fylde too. We are busy putting up our Christmas tree!


Ahhh! Fantastic. I'm just back from a short walk up the pentland hills. Checked in and here it is :).
Thank you so much Lucy. Hope you had a fab walk, you just wouldn't believe its December tomorrow!! Cozy cozy :))


I've just ordered the balls this week and cannot wait to begin this wonderful Cosy Blanket!!!

Rona Griffiths

I'm doing mine king size and using 361 stitches which would be 363 starting chain, but your tension might be different to mine so best to check it out with a tension square. I bought two packs so hoping that's enough, I'm about to start week five and still have a small amount of each ball in the first pack left, if I did need to I suppose I could order a few more balls but thinking I may not need to, hoping this helps you Mandy Mills. Rona

Mandy Mills

Same sunny day here and we are going for a walk too. I've put some crochet effort in this week and am about to start stripe 40. My blankie is long enough to keep my legs warm now. Excited to see how your blanket is looking later xxx Kathryn


Enjoy the glorious sunshine/fresh air this morning. Days like this a few and far between now. x

Rona Griffiths

Gorgeous! I've only just started and am on row 27, so happy to be in such great company! I'm taking your lead and off out for a walk on this lovely sunny Dorset morning, then back for cosy hooking in front of the fire later.
