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

Hi Lucy

Thank you for all your inspiration and fabulous tutorials, I've learnt so much.

I wondered if you had managed to put together a pattern for your beautiful chunky bag with the flower on the flap as seen in your blog post above? I've had it pinned to remind me to make it but not found a pattern?

Happy New Year Lucy (and thank you in advance!)

Judy Cimafranca

I am always Crochetified when I visit your home! Sooo full of Crochetastic ideas...love, love...


Oh! Really hoping yourself and wool warehouse create a pack for that lovely chunky bag. I like very much :) x morag


My resolution is to learn to crochet too. My lovely husband bought me a step by step guide for Christmas, let's see what happens! Your work is simply beautiful and your blog an inspiration. Happy New Year.


Hi Lucy, as usual a fantastic catch up of things you have done during 2014. A few comments from some people infer your followers don't have a mind of their own to choose to buy magazines or yarn or contribute to Yarndale. Why do they comment if all they have to say is negative and is a form of bullying? They also have a choice either to read your blog or not but to leave unnecessary comments is a sad indication of today's cynical society.

I hope, Lucy, that you carry on just as you are as we all love what you do and who you are and ignore the few sad comments that some leave on your blog. I contacted one of your followers in America and we agreed that you have a wonderful world wide (www) appeal and we feel a part of the extended Attic24 family.

I hope 2015 brings to you and your family all you wish for, good health and continued happiness. I think I can speak for most of your followers and say ' We love Lucy'. Warm seasonal greetings from me to you :-) xx


Much as expected - promotion of Yarndale and simply Crochet yet again.

Expecting the "Home" round up to be the usual spending on unnecessary items, flowers and magazines.


Oh wow, what a lovely blog and we all know you did much more than this. Well done I love all your projects and you get me out of my comfort zone and I am slowly trying more tricky patterns.
Thankyou so much Lucy!!

You are an inspiration! Thank you for sharing your craft-filled life.

My daughter introduced me to Attic24.....and now I'm hooked!!!
Your use of colour is just so inspiring...and as a painter and tutor colour is my world!
So looking forward to reading and seeing more of your wonderful designs.
Happy hooking 2015.

Sandra Campbell

Well, I would say your highly organized Lucy!! You completed a lot of projects, each just lovely. Your an inspiration to so many...me too! I hope to be so organized this year. Never too late to begin :)

Happy New Year Lucy!


Congratulations on your 1000th post!!!! Happy New Year and you continue to bless me with so much creativity and the joy of colour and love of your family! Looking forward to another hooky year with you!

Happy 1000!
I love your yearly review posts as well because they inspire me to get a wriggle on, and finish a swag of projects I've left by the wayside.
The one lovely thing I noticed in your general year in review post after this one, is not just the wonderful things you have done and seen, but how the changes in light in each of the pictures reflects the changes in seasons.
Thanks for sharing another year with us xox


WOW!!! 1000! Every time I pop in to catch up you manage to amaze me in one way or another and this is no exception! Many congratulations on your 1000th post and here's to sharing the next 1000 with you!

Happy New Year to you and your family. hope 2015 is good for you and yours.

Happy New Year Lucy, congratulaions on your 1000th post and thank you so much for all the inspiration you give so freely.
My Cosy blanket isn't quite finished yet - it's for a super king sized bed and I don't think it's long enough, so I'll be working on it for a while yet I think.
Thanks again.x


Lucy you and your wonderful blog have inspired me to pick up a crochet hook for the first time. I met you at Ally Pally knit and stitch and you assured me that I could tackle the costal ripple blanket as my first ever project. Well I really was not convinced, but I am now over three quarters of the way through and am hooked ( pardon the pun ). Not only that but my eldest daughter who also had never tried crochet liked it so much she has already made 2 blankets. She did costal and cottage and I have just bought her the cosy pack to make her 3rd. She is much quicker than me as I have arthritis in my wrists so am slow but steady. I just wanted to thank you so much for your time, your amazing blog your generosity in sharing your passion. I wish you and your family a happy and healthy new year xxx


You are one very talented lady Lucy! Happy New year to you and your family and thank you for all the inspiration in those 1000 posts.


Lovely blog as usual Lucy, thank you for everything in 2014.


Congratulations on your 1000th Post, Lucy. As someone who started bloggiing this past August, that amount seems staggering. I have loved following you and you actually inspired me to pick up my crochet hook again, after about 15 years. Thank so much for all you've given this past year - I truly hope 2015 is a year for peace, joy and good health for you and your family. xoxo

Oh Lucy,
What a wonderful year of crochet for you. Thank you for sharing your colorful creations and patterns!

Congrats on the 1000th post and many more to come! :)) A lovely array of hooky goodness for the year with being so busy. I keep a crochet journal of my makes,my patterns, color combinations, ideas and such with notes about the specs of each project. I keep it near my "crochet chair" so it's handy to jot down things when I finish or think of something. Waiting with baited breath for that winter wreath ta-dah!


I wish you a most creative and blissful 2015 and many many more lovely posts , sharing your makes with us. Congratulations on the 1000th blog post!!

Love this round-up post, and all your posts throughout the year. Thank you for the cheer, creative inspiration, and fun!


Hi, I love your crochet and it has inspired me to learn, problem is I don't know where to start. I have been left some crochet hooks by my gran and that's about it. I love knitting but would like a change if you could point me in the right direction as far as learning books etc go it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Happy 1000th post, Lucy! Wow, wasn't your crochet year was a super busy one? And such a beautifully colourful one too. I am totally in awe! What an inspiration you continue to be through your amazing creations and wonderful blog. I'm afraid my own contribution to the world of woolly creations has been much smaller than yours this last year, but I've enjoyed every single stitch - working with yarn is truly such a joy and made even more so when there are lovely people like you (and lots of your readers too, whose blogs I've discovered through yours) who generously share their talents and skills with the rest of us. My cosy blanket has been my most enjoyable project this year by far - even though it still isn't finished! I am nearly there though and am planning to get started on the cottage pack next - I've had so many compliments on the cosy blanket - one of my sisters has even asked me to make her one as she loves the colours so much. It is entirely thanks to you that I've managed to achieve my first proper crochet project - before I found your blog I'd only ever managed the odd granny square. Thank you so much for introducing me the wonderful world of crochet! And wishing you and your sweet family a beautiful 2015 filled with lots of joy and happy things. Love, Rubekah & family xxx
