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

I am once again wowed by your talent at combining colors and modifying patterns. I love, love, love your poncho. I like the way the it almost appears to have sleeves and love the edging you put on it. The warm colors really accent the rest. Lovely, just lovely.


Oh, I just love, love, love this, Lucy. It looks so cozy and warm - just beautiful! I hope you're feeling a bit better these days and able to enjoy this beautiful holiday season with your family. xo

Lucy, I will never get tired of your ta-dah moments - I just love them to bits. They make me very happy!


Beautiful. Thanks for sharing.


Hi Lucy, this poncho looks really great, hope it's keeping you nice and warm, I also hope you are feeling much better.

Like Robin and Shibuble your HOME PONCHO is the special one and the one we want to make. I have tried to look closely at the one on the hanger to guess how many chains to start along with double crochets and trebles but it is difficult to count and be accurate. So please, please Lucy there are so many of us faithful followers who would like the tutorial so we can make our own Home Poncho's, if you do this for us we will be so excited you will hear all the cheers from around the country coming to you. Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year with the family. Love and best wishes from Pauline xx

wow die wow Lucy that is a a beauty, I'm totaly in love with it.
Greatings and have a nice Christmas, Ria


Oh, Lucy!!! I love your take on this. Also, for kindly sharing all the nitty-gritty. Like Robin, it's your HOME PONCHO that makes my heart fly. I'd pay good money for info on that. Yep.




It looks fantastic! I cant wait to make one, after I finish my Cosy blanket. Thanks for sharing the link for the pattern, I would never have had the confidence to make it wthout your blog.


Thanks so much for sharing this, I'm keen to make one next year when I'm done with all my gift making, and all your changes are ones I will make too - length, fringing, etc. Though maybe some more autumnal shades for me ;o)

Have a loverly Christmas!


Love it, Lucy! I like it so much better without the fringe. And you look terrific in it. Thank you for sharing!!


Hi Lucy, that is a lovely poncho! Have a Very Merry Christmas with your folks and your crochet! LiseS

That is just fabulous. You are so inspiring.


Ponchotastic!! sums it up perfectly

Hope snuggling in it scares away the lurgy pronto

Feel well soon (x) Helen


I hope I get my SC mag soon so I can make this! It looks great!! ♥


Great job, looks lovely and warm!


Hello Lucy! Just want to say a big thank you for sharing so generously your creativity - whether its ponchos or Christmas cards or cosy blankets - and your positive outlook in life which has certainly inspired me to be more creative and appreciate the simple things in life (not sure if you're aware of the positive influence your blog has but thought this was a good time to let you know!). Want to wish you and your family a very happy Christmas and hope that only good things come your way in the New Year!


Groovy! Like the neater finish that you get sans fringe. Besides, fringe gets caught on everything.

need the pattern. You did a great job.
Thank you

That came out lovely. Have a lovely Christmas and New Year. I hope you feel better soon.

Yours looks much nicer than the model photo! Without fringe was the absolute right way to go and your colors are lovely.

Gillian Greenshields

Really fancy making this but really nervous it'll be too tight around my neck.. I could maybe use a bigger hook?

Kim W

Very Cute! It is not something I could pull off, but looks great on you Lucy.


You look wonderful and so does your poncho. Well done, you!
