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

I so enjoy reading about your life and the pictures are just truly wonderful. I live in the middle of the US and I long for your village and daily walks. Such beautiful scenery. I’m planning on learning how to knit socks next year, the yarn is bought. Right now I’m busy fixing up a house we can move into someday. I’m actually waiting until my flower garden blooms and I can transport the beautiful flowers to my new garden. And yes, I have purple hyacinth. Love their smell. I’m going to start crocheting one of your blankets soon from the yarn I bought last year, I can’t remember which pattern but I remember loving it. Cold weather is a good time to knit or crochet here.

Hi Lucy thank you for sharing about your socks again.When you were making your Hubby's socks,I said how I wished I could knit some socks. I had purchased 3 balls of sock wool (that wasn't cheap). I tried to follow a Tunisian crochet pattern but they ended in the naughty corner!😂.I'm going to check out Christine s blog for new sock beginners.👍In hoping tomorrow (Saturday)that the weather is going to be kind so I can go for a walk and start my journey of losing some lock down belly!As you said small steps. Stay safe.💖

I would love to see a picture of your sock shelf .... mine are all jammed in a draw and I would love inspiration for how to enjoy them more! Many thanks Jane


Which blanket is on the seat of the sofa please..?


You truly have a wonderful,ll lifestyle. All your values are the right place. Lovely to read your blogs...they relax me. 🥰🌈

Thanks again for a lovely post. It might seem all "samey" to you but from my point of view it's comforting and like walking with a friend! Thanks for being you & sharing you world, photos, yarn inspiration and well, yourself. You have such a gift. Thank you for sharing!
Bless you!


Hi Lucy, thank you for another wonderful post. I’m really looking forward to the Meadow blanket too and keep thinking I’d like to try and have a go at knitting my first pair of socks, maybe in time for Christmas! I have a couple of pairs that were given to me and like you love the cosy feeling I get when I wear them. Take care and keep safe, love and hugs, Becki xx

Thank you Lucy, for another lovely blog! I always feel so relaxed and contented after reading your blogs. I hope that doesn't sound weird. Thank you! xxxxx


Your posts are lovely but I get a bit homesick for my younger life in Scotland when I see your cozy home. My life is now near Melbourne, with wide open spaces, blue skies & golden beaches. But when the weather heats up to 30 degrees & higher, then I crave cool, cloudy and occasionally snowy days. 😊

It's not untidy, you have a beautiful, colourful, comfortable, lived-in home; which it is always a pleasure to 'visit'! The hyacinths would have to go in the garden, though!

Sounds like a perfect circle of cosyness. Your sock journey and sharing on your blog got my sock journey started too. I’ve been busy knitting socks since you wrote your first sock post. My life is sock dominated these days and my whole family love knitted socks. The way you encourage others is a wonder talent. Thank you. B x

Loving the meadow meandering. The colors are beautiful. Can’t wait. It was SO cold here this morning.....22 degrees F. Not ready for this. Our Thanksgiving is next week. Officials don’t want people traveling; keep dinner to immediate family. All joy taken away. Sigh........... 2020 continues..........

Hi Lucy. I’m a newbie hooker and only recently found your blog. I appreciate your honesty about your life and the way you don’t put a gloss on it. Unfortunately the smell of hyacinths makes me ill so I can’t have them indoors. Did you know there is a National Collection of hyacinths at Ripley Castle near Harrogate? They’re usually out in mis to late April so it might make a pleasant outing for you.
I’m currently doing your Moorland blanket and loving it. Hoping to finish in time to do the Meadow in January - what a beautiful colour palette.


I love reading your posts. They are just a lovely read at the end of the day x


When you mentioned fairy lights, I remembered this project I saw on another blog. She put reindeer in mason jars with little lights! I thought you might like it for your own mantel!



Dear Lucy.
How I enjoyed reading your blog.
Your home seem so cosy and full of love and who needs to worry about a little bit of mass when we can feel I life with colour and crochet.


Oh Lucy, the first time I have disagreed with you. I absolutely hate the smell of hyacinths !! It really makes me nauseous! Cannot stand those flowers but I still love your crochet and your super blogs. It has been a lovely day here in Yorkshire and I really appreciate the sun. Cannot wait for Meadow. X
