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

Thank so much for blogtober. It was what I needed and looked forward to at the end of a hectic day. I found myself being inspired to crochet or knit more, enjoy my walks and races 2 -5k’s and a 20.11 mile. All your photos were beautiful. Thank you for taking and sharing them.It was a beautiful journey with you. I can’t wait to be able to travel again. This past summer my grandson and I were supposed to travel abroad (Scotland where my father was from, England and France). It was to be his graduation gift from me. Hopefully next summer.
Thanks again for brightening the days.

Just wanted to say thank you for blogtober and say how much I enjoyed reading them and looking at your beautiful photos. Look forward to reading more of your writing and of course making some more of you designs. Keep safe.


Thank you for sharing your life and creativity with us, i really enjoy your blogs and of course your colorful projects!


Lucy I enjoyed jour blog posts very much. Thanks!!!


Thank you Lucy. It is lovely to share your daily life. You reflect what we all feel and need at the moment and truly celebrate the small happinesses in our lives. Your creativity is inspiring and I use your patterns and suggestions all the time. Thank you.


Thank you Lucy, I have loved seeing snippets of your daily life, your 19 coffees and gazillion leaves. I look forward to seeing your new bag finished. All the best for the next few weeks x


It’s been an absolute joy sharing your blogtober posts - thank you for being such a good blogger for a whole 31 days!! It hasn’t seemed repetitive and definitely not boring. I do so enjoy sharing your life vicariously. X


Hi Lucy, thank you so much for your Blogtober. It gave stability and soothing calm in a chaotic world. I love all your pictures, even if it’s „just“ coffee, since all of them are lovingly taken and capture beauty. They feel like hot chocolate for the eye!


Hello Lucy. I've been learning stranded colourwork the past 3 years or so. I've had help from Very Pink Knits, Arne and Carlos and Skeindeer Knits, all on YouTube. I decided to knit this Advent Calender Mitten Garland -


Some are very easy with a simple over all pattern and no long floats. Others are much trickier with good tension required. I've done okay so far, 6 more to go to the end. And I'd say my colourwork has come on pretty well.

The other things I've done occasionally are Arne & Carlos' Christmas balls, just with scraps of SSDK. They're good practise too.

Both make lovely decorations and the mittens are big enough to hold a few sweets or small gifts.

Just an idea for small colourwork practise things that I started with.

Good luck with yours. You'll soon get the floats and tension licked and then you'll be knitting Tin Can Knits sweaters!

Regards Cathy


Your Blogtober posts were wonderful during a time when the weather is a little gray and I am feeling NOT connected with my friends and family because of the pandemic. I always try to check your blog every few weeks anyway to catch up on the beautiful pictures and inspiring yarn colors, but I was amusingly excited to pull up my browser almost daily to see what you had been up to last month. I don't know how you find the time. Thanks for sharing your life and ideas!


Thank you Lucy for a lovely connectedness Blogtober!
It’s been a perfect antidote to Pandemic stress.
Seeing your lovely walks has made me miss the country, I grew up surrounded by trees and fields but now live in a city. Much as I’ve enjoyed city life You’ve inspired me to make the move back to family, fields and trees.
My move is imminent and I can’t wait to start a new chapter in life of gardening, walking and crocheting with my sister by my side.
Here’s to pastures new for all of us! X

Oh Lucy. How I LOVE your blog! October was wonderful. Something to look forward to each day. I have been following you for some time now and you’ve renewed my interest in crochet once more. Rather than make lace doilies- now I’m making blankets. Much easier on the hands nowadays.
Thank you 😊

Thank you for blogging every day in October! I found your blog about 2 years ago and binge-read everything for hours each day, so it felt like I had a visit with a good friend every day. You brought me back into crocheting, something I had done as a young person...and I made over 12 afghans (mostly large twin-size...some baby size) last year due to my excitement of seeing your projects. When I got caught up on your blog, it was sad to not have you in my life daily anymore...so this past month was a real treat! Your walking/hiking trails are always a pleasure to see photos of...absolutely beautiful and I have had an infatuation with Britain for years already. Thank you for sharing your art, your life and your scenery with us!


Thank you Lucy for sharing parts of your life with us all I have thoroughly enjoyed reading everyday in fact looked forward to them. I have started several new craft projects so thank you for the ideas.


Love reading your blog each day. The routine that you have is somehow comforting to me. You live in a beautiful place surrounding yourself with nature....something I absolutely love and do the same!


I am so thankful that you decided to blog. The Attic has been a breath of fresh air.

I've always loved reading your blogs and have been following you for a good few years now although I have never posted a comment before - does this make me a lurker? Sounds a bit sinister but I can assure you I just enjoy reading about your days and seeing the pictures of your lovely home town and surrounding countryside. I have visited Skipton once while on holiday in Yorkshire and loved it. Your daily colourful blogs through October have definitely helped to get me through this dark and anxious time. Thank you so much!

We loved Blogtober! My Mom and I both read it everyday and talked about it. Reading your blog was our favorite event to look forward to each day. :) Thank you for sharing your days with us and putting so much effort into bringing daily cheer to the rest of us. ❤️ Now I’m going to crochet on my son’s Coast blanket, I only have 20 rows to go 😊

Yes I really liked reading your October blog posts! I learn so much about a related land that I don't much about. Did you notice that the picture at the top of the hill looking down to town seems like a Van Gogh? I can't stop looking at it and think the colors and levels would make a perfectly lovely blanket. Just saying.


I have enjoyed it very much, thank you Lucy!!

Hello Dear Lucy, when you described how your blogging makes you feel connected, that’s exactly how I feel when I read your blog posts. You feel like a friend to me, even though I haven’t met you. I often start a conversation with my husband with “You know Lucy, from Attic24….”
You have inspired me to take more photos and to look at the details in nature, to be in the present. I have made sooo many blankets over the past 10 or so years and that is all thanks to you starting me on my crochet journey again after about 20 years of absence. I have now started to crochet for the local hospital and giving something back has made me feel so happy.
Whenever you mention about the handmade socks you have made, I am so tempted to have a go but then I get all nervous about getting the right equipment and wool and understanding the terminology that I don’t even begin….it’s silly, I know, I really must just have a go. It’s probably because I too am suffering with unsettled hormones and often have a floofy (love that word!) head these days.
Have I enjoyed Blogtober? NO!...........I’ve bloom ‘in LOVED it!!!
I think a Q&A would be fantastic!
Thank you so, so much. Claire x


Can you write a daily Blockvember for me? I loved Blogtover. I need to see those walks, cosy scenes and read your gentle words. (I am in work at a local school xxx)


I enjoyed reading every post during October. Your posts are like a soothing balm during these trying days....and as a coffee lover, I never get tired of seeing photos of coffee goodness! Thank you for sharing your blog with us!


Thank you Lucy! You make me feel ‘normal’ in this very mixed up world.
Sending my gratitude and a virtual hug Xx


I rarely comment, but I read your blog faithfully. I really enjoy reading what you write and seeing the photos you take. Thank you!
