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

Oh, Lucy! Your blogs really do make my day! I am only a part-time crocheter and knitter these days but I am a quilter and a lacemaker. However, your blogs and love of colour and yarn make me want to find the time to start crocheting again. Keep up your lovely blogs. Congratulations on your awards. You deserve them.


Congratulations you really do deserve all those awards, belated Happy Birthday too! Sarah x


Bravo, Lucy! Everything you create makes so many people happy that you more than deserve such accolades! I am so pleased for your friend Fiona too whose shop is only 2mn up the road from me: I love going there and always leave with my heart flapping with joy! As I was looking at your photos, I couldn't help but think how incredible life is sometimes... I also took the train from Kings Cross last Friday (2 hours later) after a week spent in France on a school trip and just like you, marvelled at the ceiling with the kids as we were waiting for the platform to be announced! Later on, on the train journey, I spotted Alexandra Palace which I had never seen before and asked what was that beautiful building ... small world! Wishing you and your family a lovely half term break full off the joys of autumn!

I'm so glad you came to Ally Pally, Lucy. I was at the Knitting and Stitching show on Thursday morning and came back on Friday as there was so much to see. I live a few minutes' walk from Alexandra Palace (which I adore) and always appreciate the gentle invasion of knitters, crocheters and crafting folk to my neighbourhood once a year. And of course huge congratulations on your awards - I am so pleased. I am very belatedly making the Moorland blanket (on stripe 65) and am loving it.

Well done!! so well deserved too:) I also like crocheting on the train, I'm sure it makes it go faster!!


Thanks for the big smoke post! I love London and am very glad you had fun and won! Looking forward to your stop on the tour.


Congratulations! You're definitely my favorite crochet blog from all the way over the pond. :-)

I'm also curious about the giant flowery cushion thing that's flirting with your camera in a few places here and there lately. I don't associate you with variegated yarn, and I'm dying to see what the thing looks like when it's finished since me and variegated yarn? We're like THIS.

Congratulations again. Much deserved!


Congratulations! Very much deserved award!


Congratulations on your awards! As for Camden Market, it is definitely overwhelming. I was there this summer and loved it (great food/quirky stalls) but it is better in small doses!


Belated birthday wishes and huge congratulations on all your awards, Lucy! very much deserved ..and loved seeing all your London photos and words! you seem to have a great time...

Continued success!

Many congrats on scooping your awards - very well deserved .
A belated happy bday - but what a nice way to spend it !!?
I don't enjoy the big cities at all , and like you , would gravitate toward the lesser populated spots . the canal must have been like home from home !!:)
Love your new Autumn leaves btw ! x


You deserve it, well done. Next time you need peace and quite in London, go to a museum. Not the big once but a smaller one. Tea and cookies or cake too in a museum cafes. I understand that it made your head buzzing. I'm born next to the sea, studied and lived in capital cities and went to the countryside because of the children. Coming to London this year was lovely or my own Amsterdam but my feeling home starts when I cross the big rivers again to my lovely little village.


very well done. glad you enjoyed your time away


What wonderful news! So deserved! Congratulations!

Congratulations! Honors that are well deserved for sure!

Well you have certainly wet my appetite to return to the UK and see and experience Camden. Your photos are awesome thank you for sharing your experience.
I will have to find a home and pet sit in that area now for 2019!
Going to the US again but for only 9 months this time to see all the owners I now call family. Not only will I sit for them but I will also be staying as a guest before between and after their vacations. First stop Independence Missouri in early January 2018.
Again thank you. Cheers 🇦🇺👏🏻😉👌🏻💖😀


Congratulations Lucy, Attic24, and Yarndale! You have followed your bliss and showed such grace and kindness to your readers from the beginning. Thank you for what you give to your readers such as myself .

Congratulations Lucy and belated birthday wishes. I love Alexandra Palace and usually visit at least 3 times a year.
Pleased you had tine to see some other sights.

There is so much in the way of green space in London. You can always find an oasis and they tend to be full on with trees and flowers and plants. I now live in the country and the thing I most miss is the trees and wildlife. Sounds silly but it's true as lots of the countryside is pretty open and empty. The gardens and parks are prettier by far as well. Don't miss the hustle and bustle and the thieves on mopeds though.


Congratulations, and happy belated birthday!

Congratulations on your awards, very well deserved.

You really deserve these awards! I used to think of crochet as very dull and old-fashioned but you inspired me to learn and try to make my own blankets! I have just finished one for my husband and he LOVES it! (So does our kitty!!) He even enjoyed the whole process of seeing it grow.

I have four other friends who have also developed a blanket addiction - because of your blog, and my sister has started to crochet some bunting!

You really have have a major impact!

Congratulations again, and happy birthday for last week!
