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.

Lovely sock yarn.
I couldn't get the hang of a tiny circular needle loop, so I use a 100cm needle for all my tiny work. Actually for all my circular needle knitting.
I use the magic loop method.
So, so easy.

Happy Belated Birthday. I have enjoyed your blog for so long. Love all the pictures of your walks and travels and of course the crochet projects thrill me. I hope to learn to make some decent crocheted socks. I love you can do both.

Kate McCurrach

You might bump into Chris and Tom on Saturday in Sheffield. Think they are going to a Bio sciences talk in the open day. Sheffield is the only one we could find actually doing an open day in real life. Love the sock Btw. Xx


The whole uni application thing is a bit scary isn't it. My eldest has sent his in now, so that's one thing off of the list. Fingers crossed for the next bit. That cake does indeed look very good, glad you enjoyed it. CJ xx


Quiet days are just what we all need from time to time. Enjoy!


If your daughter has any interest in horticulture/landscape architecture, Sheffield has a wonderful program. Dr Ross Cameron seems like he'd be such a neat professor to have.

Hoping you're having a lovely day. Thanks for always sharing so much beauty and... reality. :)

Happy birthday lovely, we’re the same age (for a few weeks at least) xxx

Katherine Brown

Lucy, Your cake looks yummy. So glad you had a nice birthday. I am thoroughly enjoying your blogs.

Sheffield...My son is at Sheffield and loves it! From the Residential campus Endcliffe/Ranmoor you can walk along a river and out into the Peaks which might suit your Little Lady. It's a good size city with lots going on for students and the Uni seem to have handled online teaching/face to face really well. Recommended! x

I love knitting socks on tiny circulars, persevere through the first few rounds it does get easier.
I can’t believe that I have been dipping in and out of your blog for so long, since before you were pregnant with your youngest little b. How the years flash by.

Would love to be a part of this blog group


I saw that light and thought that would be a wonderful present for someone I know ! But its out of stock meh !
Oh I am enjoying your lovely blogs, Thank you so much .

Envy your open fire must be a comfort. Happy belated birthday.


I always enjoy your pics and yesterday it was cold for my bones too in the apartment. I also feel like starting something new, but for some reason I cannot move myself. My mind says yes, my body says "stay calm and enjoy vacation".



🎉 Happy belated birthday 🎉🎁 Lucy, it sounds like the perfect way to spend a birthday and a most delicious birthday tea too. I’m very intrigued by the new CAL you’re working on and looking forward to the delightful treat in store for us! I’ve been working on my Yuletide blanket and am absolutely loving the colours, stitches and how well it is coming along. Thank you so much again for the wonderful patterns you create for us, it truly makes me so happy to be able to create these marvellous things and all from your brilliant photographic blogs!! Glad you enjoyed your impromptu breakfast yesterday, take care and love and hugs to you xxxx Becki ☺️🥰


Your morning routine sounds lovely. I have discovered that if I get going first thing, I have much more energy.


I see you are knitting your sock on a tiny circular needle, is that correct.
If so, how do you like using it? I bought one but wasn’t entirely comfortable as with using double point.
Hope to hear your opinion.
Thanks, Nancy


Happy belated birthday, Lucy!
I wish you all the best!
Just finished the blanket I made using your summer garden granny squares, and it looks sooo beautiful on my youngest son's bed! Thank you so much for it. He loves it!
And thanks for keeping us inspired throughout this month. I hope you have a lovely Thursday!


Working on the next CAL?!!?!!?!?!? Whoop whoop Lucy that’s made my day xx


Hi Lucy, I absolutely love reading your blog. Even though my life is very different, living far away and not knitting or crocheting for many years, I feel a great affinity with you. Ps: and I never do without my daily walk, as close to nature as possible.


It is something to become very tired of. Going out and about, he endless thinking of your kids' future. Little Lady can choose wrong, but chance the direction even in the first year. My youngest was only 17 when he went to the university. We had many conversations, in the end, he choose what he found interesting. After his Ph.D. he started the study he is made for, medicine, but was too young for at the time. (and you don't want to do what mom does, eh, adolescents, rolls eyes) Little lady has time, she will get there. Don't worry.


I would love to be motivated enough to walk at 6.30am, but Im a real night owl often reading a book until super late. It's just before 8am here right now and I'm looking outside my bedroom window. Its sunny and green after a night of rain and very inviting. Perhaps I should grab my sneakers and head out?


Love your post. I tried knitting socks with that tiny circular needle, couldn't so it. Have to use double points. Happy belated birthday...🎂

You and J have cultivated two great new habits in your early walk, and mid-morning coffee. It's so much easier to do things once they become almost automatic...OK, maybe it's not automatic getting up at that time, yet, but it will be soon!
Hope you enjoyed some R+R with the delicious scented candle at the end of your day, too.


I'm enjoying your daily blog, Lucy, and also enjoying crocheting your Woodland blanket after a couple of years of not crocheting anything at all. I first came across your blog years ago when I was looking for patterns to use with a little Crochet Club I used to run at the primary school I taught at. Happy days. Thank you so much for all the yarny inspiration x
