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 the colour wash! Such a beauty 😍

Teresa Kasner

Hi Lucy, my big bag of pastel sea inspired yarn is here and I'm excited to begin my foundation row. I'm thinking of starting with the sand colors, then the sea greens, then the pink and lavender of a sunset and ending up with blue sky. Then I'll repeat. I'm excited! Sending love from Oregon!
((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Wow the French retreat looks fab! Maybe there's a wisteria blanket in the pipeline!! Loving the colourwash and random stripey dune and cant wait to start making them. Thanks again Lucy for the inspiration xx

Sarena Cox

Thank you for such a lovely post. I am so looking forward to meeting you and can't wait to take in the sights and sounds of such a beautiful place.

Might there be a wisteria blanket in the offing?

Glad you’re back. Your trip sounds amazing. My yarn arrived last week and I’m enjoying the colors and pattern. I’m on row 26. Had to give my eyes a bit of a rest!!

Welcome back! I love the Dune colourwash stripes, they are so harmonious. Isnt wisteria divine? It doesnt last long here, but while it does its magical.


So wonderful to read about your vacation/crochet teaching excursion. Had to laugh about the laundry and butter, so typical. My yarn is on its way here to St.Louis and I’m excited to get started on this dune blanket.


Wow, France looks amazing. I only discovered about the scent of wisteria a week ago as well, when I found a plant growing over the railings outside a house in Bath. Wonderful isn't it. The domestic situation made me smile. One load of washing in nine days, oh dear. And NO BUTTER. Thank goodness you are home. CJ xx


So happy you enjoyed it. New things happening in near future ;>)


Every domestic goddess deserves a break from routine occasionally. Admiring your inspirational compositions of colours and photos as always.

Wonderful views, it sounds like a great retreat in such a beautiful place. Can't wait to hopefully see more photos after the second retreat :)

Jools Morgan-Jones

Wonderful photos, as always, and it sounds like you have made some fabulous memories for yourself and the others on the retreat with you, too :-)
Make sure you take this week slowly, Lucy, and make the most of opportunities to rest when you can. Nanna naps are incredibly restorative! Xx


Lovely as ever thankyou

Maria Illsley

I love to read your posts but I very rarely comment. The colour wash blanket looks stunning and I look forward to reading today's post. Wisteria is a wonderful plant and I agree the scent is heavenly. On my lunch break the other day I went for a walk and counted 7 houses in one small road that had wisteria growing. I must take some pics of them xx


LOL ran out of butter, love that. I had a beautiful Wisteria at my last home. Your retreat looks awesome and envious of all who can do this. Beautiful crochet as always Lucy xoxo


Welcome back Lucy, we missed you! 💙


Lovely to have you back! The hotel/retreat looks amazing and your photos as usual make me want to go there.....
Take a little time out now to regroup and look after yourself, in between all the washing, ironing, shopping, housework etc. etc....!
Thanks as always for your lovely, well thought out patterns.

Tracey Carter

Can’t wait to see the Dune colourwash, I think that what I’ll do with my pack I’ve got waiting to start. Xxx
