About Me

  • Hello! 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

Please keep it a secret, so it will feel like Christmas at the great reveal.

Please, please, please give us a sneaky peak, the build up of excitement is very much part of the blanket journey (for me at least!) x

Susan Oliver

I am hoping it will feature the colour of the berries on the Rowan Tree and the background colours of the blue water and the different shades of green on the moors behind the rowan Tree.


That house looks like a set from a Harry Potter movie!

Please, please, please tell us! ☺️❤️

As a Yorkshire exile living in Kent I love your pictures of this beautiful county . And the blankets of course !


Oh my goodness, it's beautiful up there. And it really is amazing how the colours in your moorland blanket tie in so perfectly. They're beautifully natural. I always want to know everything at once and I'm absolutely hopeless at guessing, so I'd love to know where your next inspiration is coming from. I'm wondering if it's something summery. I know what you mean about the power of something sweet. When we were coming down Snowdon a couple of years ago the littlest boy was on his last legs until we reached the halfway house and I bought him some sweets. He actually ran down the last bit. Amazing. It's a similar transition here, to just three or four people walking at weekends. We're still getting used to it. The littlest boy really likes a brother along if possible, to make it more fun, so it's a bit of a balancing act at the moment. CJ xx

Hi Lucy.. I loved all the moor images and I'd LOVE to see more of the old house up there. I can just imagine the stories it could tell.

I vote for you to tell us what you're planning as it gives us all more time to decide if we want to join the CAL and get excited about it.

Have a fabulous week, my friend. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

I love your designs and color choices! I have most of your patterns and purchased colorways thru Wool Warehouse for them. Thank you so much for freely sharing your works of heART!


Lovely I can feel the fresh air from here. OOOOh I dont know if I want to know or not oooer my daughter now always buys me the cal for my December birthday present so am excited about this he he

Gretchen Weaver

Thank you for sharing this post. It was so lovely to see your moors, so different from my home, farm land in the Great Lakes area of northern Indiana.


I too am noticing the colors around me much more and apparently my Creative Mind is kicking into overdrive because I'm always looking at colors and selecting which SSDK color it matches and how to put them together! You are a true inspiration and I am sooo grateful I chanced across one of your patterns years ago and followed the link back to your blog! And yes, unless you're into torturing your followers , ;) please share what your mind is cooking up for us in January!January is such a looooong way away!:)


Dahlias I wonder ?
Bright and rich colours ?
A little sneaky peek?


This was such a lovely post to pop up on my FB feed. It took me back to my childhood. We had a static caravan on the N. Yorks moors and I spent nearly every weekend there as a child. Wonderful.


Our walk was about 5.5 miles, it took around 3 hours so not too long really, but the uphill stretches were pretty steep!

Lizzy Dillingham

It looks like a very long hike, how far did you walk? Def share your inspiration, pls.

I could see revisiting this vista in a more autumn palette, deeper browns, lime green, red rowan, purple of the heather, grey water, pale blue sky.[sounds awful but with the right yarns?]



Definitely share. I'm a 'have to know' kind of person and like to plan as far ahead as possible.


Please share! 😂 You’ll burst if you don’t 😂

I love your postings about the moorlands so much! And, they actually made me pay attention to the changing colors on my morning commute. There is one particular stretch of median strip that is especially lovely right now. The colors of the various grasses and plants are right in line with the colors or the moors (and your gorgeous Moorland Blanket), and I honestly don't think I would have appreciated them quite so much if you hadn't (virtually) called my attention to them. So, thank you for that- it makes my commute a little more pleasant!


The moorland blanket is also my favourite blanket , loved making it , would love to know more about your next cal , you can never have too many blankets , right ?

We need to know please!!!!xx
