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 know it is now June, but I have been dipping in and out of your blog for the last couple of years - when I have some time! I crochet lots of amigurumi bears and rabbits with clothes. I get the bug around April/May every year. By June I have a hankering to give up the small stuff and go for a blanket, you are my 'go to' for inspiration. I would have loved to have meet you on yarn shop day as I adore that part of the world. I will definitely put a note in the diary for next year! I used to be a rep for a needlework company and loved travelling all over Yorkshire. Now I am based in the Cotswolds but will definitely make the effort to spend a weekend near Skipton soon. Thank you for your wonderful blog!


I would love to come over for Yarndale!!
I love your blog! My passions are yarn and books!

Jackie Farrow

You do live in a lovely town. Visited it last year while staying close by for Yarndale. Visited a couple of Yarn shops. Crossing fingers Yarndale is on my list to do again next year. I plan our arrival in to the UK on the date of Yarndale. So you can guess I can't wait to see when you post it up. Sorry means that this years Yarndale would have been and gone for that to happen. Sad for everyone that went but goody for me. 😊 Next time I will visit your studio. Plus I want to see you again at Yarndale like I did last year. Till we meet again. 😀

Ahhhh! I so wish I could visit your little bit of heaven! The U.S. is so far away! I'm sure I would snuggle in and have a lovely stay and finally learn how to knit!!

Julie Davies

Agggh I'm jealous! There are soooo many lush yarn shops in the UK you are so spoilt! As far as I know there are only a couple of dedicate yarn shops in Western Australia where I live and this state is many times larger than the UK!


If I ever make it across the pond, I would love to meet you and explore your little town. I hope you enjoy yarn day.


What a good opportunity to support your local yarn shop, as sadly there aren't too many around & it would be lovely to keep the ones we have left! They have such a lovely feel about them. Thank you for letting us know Lucy. Xx


I had a very bisy weekend and came back to find I missed yarn shop day!! Gutted :(

So what's new?

no posts for weeks and then this pops up. Lucy must want to sell something.

Debbie, Essex

What a wonderful idea!!!! Enjoy!!!

Kathryn Ashe

I hope your day is lots of fun!


What a wonderful event! If I could, I'd be there if only to visit Skipton again.

On another subject entirely, would you be willing to write a blog about your favorite camping tips? We've just purchased our first trailer/caravan and would love some pointers. What food you like to take along, activities that keep your children occupied (we hope to take our grandchildren out a few times, ages 8 and 4), or just anything you can think of to help out some first-timers.

I'm on row 3 of the hydrangea blanket! I'm new to crochet so this is very exciting for me.

Thanks for continuing to write your lovely blog!

Eleonora from Coastal Crochet

Wow, thanks for letting us know about Yarn Shop Day! I'm going to see what's on near me....fingers crossed there's something 😊❤💕😊

Eleanor MacLean

Looks fabulous, Lucy! Wish I could be there, but am too far away (Canada). I am going to our annual Fibre Fest today, though, and will definitely be supporting our local fibre artists.

Angela-Southern USA

Sounds like a fantastic day! Soooooooo wish I could pop over the pond for a visit! Have fun, and squish some yarn for me!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

L'Empreinte de l'Ange

And french readers too ! Why am I sooooo far away from you Lucy ? But not with my heart.

Lily Davies

We'll be visiting Skipton on our brand, spanking new, canal boat this summer. So, although, I won't be able to get to Yarn Day tomorrow, I now know
where Woolleys can be found!

Teresa Kasner

What a great shop and I'm glad you have it nearby. How nice of you to have a meet and greet there! I wish I could pop over from Oregon, USA to visit. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Such a cute little shop, and full of Stylecraft! Surely do wish I could be there, but it's a looong trip from Texas! Maybe someday. Hope the weekend is splendid!

gloria g. Walls

Oh how I wish to find a shop like that and good prices as well.....and visit your lovely studio. I am so happy with your last blanket and colors. I am happily crocheting along and have done about 90 rows.....Thank you for sharing. I am looking ahead to get more yarn.......I am a quilter by trade, but crochet is my sit down enjoyment.........can't wait to do what you do next..... - if I can! I am self taught crocheter and with this blanket have learned how to change colors.....a first for me.......gloria g. in Florida


Wonderful idea!! I think I schedule this for next year, I'm from Argentina and I love to visit you and your town, but I can't right now....best of luck!! Enjoy paradise!!!


Wish I could be there but it is a long way from Florida. Have a great day.


Oh, if I could only jump on a plane and fly over to visit you and that glorious shop. Skipton sounds like my kind of town. Have a wonderful yarn day.


You are a dear. That would be a long commute. I'm in Minnesota. But I visit you here at your blog all the time. :) You remain my yarn color goddess. Have a most pleasant week!

Susan Smith

Drooling over all that yarn! Looks like a great shop & pity I can't be in lovely Skipton for the day, but way too far for a day out I thinks. Talking about playing with wool on the floor, makes me laugh, as I've been known to have fabric or wool or even magazines at a Newsagents on the floor with me sitting there too. I do get some strange looks. BTW, is there a good fabric/quilt shop in Skipton, though I suppose I could ask K's family that question? But none of them sew. Have a wonderful day & I'll miss meeting you. Enjoy & take care.
