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

So so envious. Wish we had something like this in Australia. I would be there with bells on. So many talented people.


I live in tv US but my sis and I want to get there in the next couple years it looks fantastic and stay for some site seeing too. Our grandparents are from cheltnum England


Thank you! Yarndale looks awesome! I made a sheep for donation here at a local charity auction. They are so cute and I appreciate the time you took to photograph all of them.

Next year we're coming to see you and Yarndale, all the way from New Orleans and Muskegon, Michigan, via British Air. Thank you for sharing everything!

Winwick Mum

What a fab weekend it was! xx


Congratulations everyone's hard work has created another wonderful Yarndale. Sarah x


I had the most wonderful weekend in Skipton, such a lively,interesting town, Yarndale was just heaven, love love loved it!!!! It was so lovely to meet you Lucy, you are just as nice in real life as I hoped you would be. It was well worth the trip over from Ireland and I'm stocked up with project ideas for the winter.Well done Yarndale team!


Gorgeous photos, especially the second one. So glad it was a triumph, I have heard excellent things about it. Wish I was there! You've put so much hard work into it, you should be very proud indeed of all you and the other organisers have achieved. Wonderful. CJ xx


I'll be experiencing Yarnfale virtually, via the many blog posts I've seen popping up. I can't believe how far people travelled to go, it's gob smacking!! I feel like Devon is perhaps only a stones throw now! I'll make sure I try harder next year and make the journey.

Thank you for giving those of us across the pond a good glimpse of this year's Yarndale! It looked like a huge success and fun for all! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Managed to miss seeing you or any of those wonderful dangly mandalas - how one earth I missed those I have no idea!
And I missed the stunning moths too - duhhh
But had a great day on sunday seeing all the inspiration, the happy faces and the wonderful yarns.
Well done to everyone involved, medals all round folks!


Lovely to finally meet you at yarndale this year lucy xx

It was worth the 8000 miles plus to have my day at Yarndale. Meeting you Lucy was on my bucket list and that has been ticked off. Thank you so much for all your hard work and everyone else involved. I had such a great time and can not wait to my sheep to arrive at my In-laws. We are now in Scotland for a few days.


Yarndale was awesome again. I love being part of the community, the rainbows and the excitement as an exhibitor. :-)

Glad Yarndale was so successful!


It was lovely to see you, Lucy! Yarndale was fab, so many talented people making gorgeous things, and oh! the baby alpacas!!
Stepping, awe-stricken, in to your studio, when I'd only ever seen photos of it, was an amazing and slightly surreal experience - something akin to standing on the set of a favourite film, or finding myself catapulted in to a much-loved book!
Time for you to rest now, and smile over all the wonderful memories from Yarndale 2016 :) xx

Miriam van Wieringen

Yarndale was amazing! I enjoyed every minute of it! It was so nice to talk to you in person (about our tulip fields in Holland and about colors) We drank a splendid coffee at Coopers cafe, saw your studio and walked the yarn walk. Amazing!
I can't wait to join the new CAL with the colors of Yorkshire, what a beautiful place you live in.
Thank you and all the other organizers for a wonderful experience!

Gillie Kilner

All looks gorgeous, Lucy, and drat it, I'm coming next year, so there! Wonderful to read about it but better to be there!


Glad you loved the weekend, despite being so busy. Thank you so much for everything you did, and the rest of the team too:) I had a really lovely day and will definitely be back next year. Those mandalas were awesome. I made one using the same method in the summer for our school's arts festival and then did workshops making huge dream catchers on hoola-hoops with year 8s. They looked great!

I've cast on my first pair of socks, inspired by you and Christine - jury is still out on the teeny weeny circular needles, but I have wrestled the hedgehog into submission and am doing OK with DPNs!

Jessica Woodhouse

Great to meet you at yarndale, from the ladies of Norfolk Crochet Club x


You did honestly all the sheep on pinterest? Wow.So happy you liked/loved Yarndale after all the preparation. Take a rest, that blog will come ;>D

Jean Petford
