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

An interesting read Lucy. I was visiting my daughter in England when The Beast from the East visited. It was a bit touch & go as to whether I’d be able to fly back to sunny Australia with the abnormal weather. Love your blankets and blog.


Pretty Winter photos! Thank you!


It's ok everyone. Check Lucy's Facebook and Instagram. Business as usual.

Hope all is well with you. Missing your wonderful words of crochet.

Chère LUCY, sans de vos nouvelles, j'espère que votre santé est bonne, je pense très souvent à vous. Bises


it looks like you have had enough snow to last your memories for quite some time. It looks very pretty but I'm sure you will welcome spring with open arms.


I'm also hoping that everything is ok with you xx


Lucy, another week gone by and I'm worried about you. As Caz said, we've missed your 10th anniversary celebrations too so I do hope that you and your family are well.


Hope you are well. You’ve given us so much joy through your blog and I‘m not sure how we can repay you. Would love to pop in with a bunch of spring flowers for you but I‘m half way around the world in Minnesota where we’re also getting snow. Grey skies today and looking forward to some warmth. It will come.
Sending warmth and best wishes,



I couldn't seem to find a way to contact you so I am posting this here.


I think you will adore these embroidery patterns.


Hi Lucy, it's been a while since you were here so I hope you are fit and well and enjoying Edinburgh yarn show or other travels and having fun. You even missed your 10th blog anniversary, which seems strange, unless I've got the date wrong!
Spring and sunshine will soon be on the way. I have started a poncho using your Woodland yarn pack. I'm crocheting a cowl neck using crocheted ribbing in the "sky" section colours and eventually will work my way down to the forest floor at the hem. All being well it will be finished in time to keep me cosy in the autumn. Thinking off you in snowy Skipton and hoping you and your family are all ok.

I sent you a dm on Instagram one week ago, could you please read it? Thank you in advance! :)


Yes, I’m also hoping you’re ok!


Long time since you posted so hope you're okay.


Beautiful photo's Lucy I hope you have managed to get out the front door now. We didn't have it as bad as you in Yorkshire but we couldn't get the track for 4 days until the tractor came and cleared it for us. I love living in the middle of nowhere but it does have it's draw backs. Still a lot of crochet was completed in those four days.

These are wonderful photos and we here in the Niagara Region in Ontario Canada actually had a Snow Day on March 2nd as well. We do get more snow than you but this area also is quite southern and we grow many tender fruits and grapes for wine. Stay warm and enjoy checking in on your blog, Frances


I'm in Southeast Ontario & we thought we were snow free. When more came overnight I came here to your blog for a cheer-up of your lovely colours. Your home always looks so cozy & I am thinking that is exactly what you need right now.

Lovely photos. Our snow has gone now and I hope we don't get anymore. We only have a small village shop so the car is essential for most provisions but I used the bus instead, I don't like driving in snow conditions.


This sort of weather on my little island off the coast of NY State was very common decades ago when I was a child, though of late this has not so much been the case.. that is until Global Warming began to become more and more extreme! Now that there are no little people living in my home the quiet is deafening - but I still enjoy a good snow day when Hubz takes my 4 wheel drive vehicle to work in place of his sportier model that would never allow his getting up and down the hills to and from work... so home I sit with knitting in my lap, a warm cuppa close at hand and Am thrilled to look out and enjoy the winter wonderland views from warmth of my den.Totally enjoyed your photos as I always do Lucy!!!


I do have one to wrap around me, such as it is. I started (again) the Granny Stripe! I love it!


Well we had a lot of snow in Dorset too, in fact yesterday, 11th March they are still finding cars buried in snow drifts, you would know such places as corscombe , maiden newton etc. 100 cars were stuck near Puddletown over night, crazy for this area, and Devon copped it too.
I have lived in the north, and totally dislike the white stuff, so glad that you could adapt !

Take care now, and happy crafting, I must make myself another blanket, even though we have two log burners, a blanket is a great comfort !


I made the cottage color yarn pack using the cozy stripe blanket pattern and that is what I am wrapped up in here in Minnesota where we have a snow day with schools canceled here too. Thank you for sharing your work with all of us and sharing your town too. I absolutely love my blanket.


Oh such lovely pictures! We don't get snow here in the San Francisco Bay Area, so I appreciate yours from afar. Warm hugs from Kimmy ♥


Hi! Enjoy reading your blog. I hope with all the snow you had a chance to make some snow cream. Down here in South Carolina, USA we rarely get snow. When we do we put out the baking pans to catch and then add sweeten condensed milk and vanilla or chocolate and make the best ice cream.

Beautiful photographs and memories to treasure .I can't believe your little one is 8 !!!
