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

Thank you Lucy. Your creativity and imagination continues to inspire and encourage us all. You're a gem.

What an amazing number of gorgeous projects you've completed this year. You've inspired me to start crocheting this year, it's taken me 4 months to make my first blanket (your ripple pattern) and you'll be glad to hear it gets snuggled under by me n the kids daily! I've also made snowflake bunting for above my kitchen window which is giving me a lot of joy. So thank you and God bless you and your family in 2016!

Your posts take me to my happy place! Thank you for being such a kind, sharing and very inspiring person.


Thank you Lucy. Your blog always makes me happy when I read it!!! 😊😊


Hi Lucy
Once again you have given me a lovely feast of colour to look at while having breakfast here in New Zealand. I too am looking forward to this year and to see what you are working on. You are a very talented and generous lady. Everything you make is colourful and very beatiful. Thank you.


I feel exactly that about crocheting, I've only been doing it a year but I truly love it, it brings me happiness, helps clear my busy mind and gives me a great sense of personal achievement, I love your blog and look forward to seeing what 2016 brings to you! Love from another Lucy


I haven't read your blog for a long while and realised I missed reading your posts- they're always encouraging and honest, focusing on the positive aspects of life, without pretending that life is always perfect (bloggers who always portray themselves and their lives as constantly picture-perfect sometimes bring me down). I learned to crochet 6 years ago when I came across your blog and tutorials! It is a true pleasure browsing though all the posts I've missed out on! Thanks for the creativity, colour and inspiration you share here! I pray you and your family will have a very good year - Happy New Year!

Lucy, I've told you this many times but it bears repeating -- I think you are solely responsible for a massive and worldwide resurgence of crocheting and in technicolor! I personally had let my crochet skills founder until I found your blog. Almost 5 years ago! And now I have brought vivid colors back into my life and home, thanks to you. All my works used to be in earth colors.. no more! :-) Thank you for all you do for us, your devoted readers. You rock!

Happy New Year ! Love seeing all your hooky makes-I'm still working on my seaside wavy blanket-not too much to do now and I am so pleased I gave it ago. It is the first big project I have tried and that is all down to YOU Lucy ! You are such an inspiration ! Thank you ! Looking forward to all your posts this year xx

Melissa Hatcher

I am new and was so inspired by your work. Thank you for sharing your beautiful and creative year.

Fabulous, just fabulous! A wonderful year filled with color. It is a wonderful global community, one I'm thankful for also. I look forward to seeing what colorful adventures you share in the new year!x


Ooooohhhh all that lovely colour and wonderful creativity. You really are an inspiration Lucy, thank you. I have just received a late Christmas gift - your Cosy Stripe Blanket from Wool Warehouse. I'm very excited and can't wait to start but must finish the ripple blanket first!


What a busy year,I have just been on BBC website there was a crochet section and low and behold Attic24 pops up as best for clear pictures and instructions, Lucy your fame is spreading. Happy New Year to all


vraiment jolis tous ces ouvrages, des petits au plus grands, décoratifs ou autres.

Carol Deacon

Looking forward to a colourful 2016. Keep up the good work keeping us all cheerful with your beautiful colours.


Lucy, I want to say a very big 'thank you' to you for all of the wonderful crochet projects that you so kindly share with your readers - you're not only an inspiration, but very generous indeed. Every time I see your winter wreath I am blown away by it, and I often make many of the smaller things you have designed (as time is often an issue for me). As a blogger your voice is enthusiastic and friendly, and you always have something to say that's worth reading. A very Happy New Year to you and your family!

I am making your cosy stripe blanket now! The colors and the yarn are beautiful and are such a joy to work with. I love your blogs! I would particularly like to thank you for adding the printed patterns to the Wool Warehouse packs. I ordered as soon as I saw that the patterns were included. It means the world to me. Happy 2016!

Jan Doling

Happy New Year Lucy. Your designs never fail to inspire. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with in 2016. xx

Bernadette Edens

Happy New Year, Lucy! Best wishes to you and your family! :)


So many lovely things to delight and inspire us all. Thank you for both your creativity and your generosity in sharing them.


I love this your colorful blog!
