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

Checking in after weaving the last of the ends for Week 3. Pretty pleased that I’ve stayed caught up this far! Thanks for all you do!

Hello Lucy,

Yours is the first thing I check every morning, then
Tales from a Happy House. Lately I can't seem to get TFHH. What has happened with Gillian?

Thank you,

Lovely!! 💖


Lucy, thanks so much for your amazing blog posts, beautiful photos, and tempting patterns. I am a passionate knitter, and your posts have finally tempted me to attempt crochet, even though it's difficult for left-handed me to put that hook in my right hand. (I just don't like the look of things crocheted left-handed.) Anyway, I'm pegging away on my Harbour Blanket, still working on week one, but just loving it. Please stick with your plan of simple patterns, wonderful colors. They are so WONDERFUL and ACCESSIBLE to us beginners!! Thank you so much!! (And I'm loving the gorgeous Stylecraft yarn; who knew acrylic yarn could be so nice!) Thank you Thank you Thank you!!


Harbour blanket is looking more lovely each week. So nice to see your smiling face in that last photo too x


Responding to S. Caulder regarding a substitution for Stylecraft Special DK: I too live in the USA and needed a substitution, being wary of overseas purchases via the internet. You could use Caron Simply Soft. Your blanker won't be the same, but it will be passable. HOWEVER, I urge you to give the Wool Warehouse a try. It is easy to buy the yarn package from them, the cost is not much more than you would pay in the U.S., and your order will arrive much sooner than you would expect. The WW is now my favorite place to buy yarn. The selection is amazing, they don't bother me with all those annoying pop-ups and let me shop in peace, the quality is top notch, and I find the service to be exceptional. Seriously, try them at least once. I predict you will love them and wonder why it took you so long to come around. In fact, I just placed another order -- this time for two of Lucy's Yuletide color paks (I want to make a rectangular shape, and when is having leftover yarn ever a problem?). I can't wait for it to arrive!


I am loving all the variations of this blanket, especially with the Yuletide pattern. Well done everyone!!!


What a fabulous picture of you, all windswept and happy by the sea, holding up your beautiful blanket with well-deserved pride! Love it!


Hi Lucy, loving the blanket! Although, I have yet to start mine 🙃 Just wondered if anyone was doing a 15 colour repeat - like you did for the Sweet Pea? - Marsha xx

S. Caulder

I live in the USA, is Stylecraft yarn sold here? I'm getting a late start and would like to buy the yarn here if possible. If it isn't sold in America, is there a brand that you can recommend for a substitute?
Thank you,
S. Caulder


The harbor Yuletide is stunning! Thank you for sharing! As always I love your posts and thank you for your generosity with all you do. I have managed to keep up with my blanket, which is quite an achievement on its own and it is so lovely. I share pictures of it with everyone!

Arlene Bomback

I think you are beautiful Lucy... and so is your heart. Making your blanket is pure joy.

Have a wonderful weekend and thank you for this weeks colors.


Thank you for another lovely post & I knew exactly where that second photo was as I've spent several lovely times there when in UK with family. Not started this rug yet due to it being so hot, but am enjoying it anyway through everyone else. Take care & hugs.

Hi Lucy Luv how my blanket is coming along...I get so excited every time i do a color change. Great pic of you and your stripness blowing in the wind. Had a blustery sea walk myself this morning, but it does the heart good and clears out and cheers up my foggy brain. Take Care, Hugs, MO

Debbi Robertson

Your smile is as bright and beautiful as your blanket! So glad you included that photo!


How lucky to have been raised in that beautiful scenery. I was raised among steel mills and tall chimneys. But I choose now to live in better areas and color is so important to me. I love your blankets and pictures and blog. Thank you.

Sam Baylisd

Love your blogs and your beautiful crochet 😍 Bridpot is a favourite stop for us on our way too and from Lyne Regis or Beer.
Please never stop - you really fo lift my soul with you words and picture xxc


Another beautiful blanket ! Great pictures by the sea.


Thank you, Lucy. I love the colors. This is the 4th of your ripples that I've made. I always look forward to your blog posts, photos, and snippets of your life that you share. I have a small business proposition if you would be interested. Enjoy your weekend!


I love the windswept state of your appearance - it reminds me of so many lovely, blustery seaside stays and reminds me again that I've been away for too long.

The blankets are all so very beautiful! Sady, I can't participate in the CAL, my wrist is dead set against it, but it's soooo nice just looking at what others are doing. Thank you for sharing all those photos.


Lucy you look very happy with your blanket on the beach. You can tell you had a lovely time on Dorset coast. Not jealous!


Brilliant. And somehow just right to see them in situ on a windy day. I know exactly what you mean about thinking about summer in the depths of winter. It's all very reassuring. CJ xx

Gillian Edwards
