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 you so much for a delightful pattern, Lucy. You are a talented and inspiring designer. Please do not think otherwise. This particular pattern has given me several ideas to make small gifts of jars of preserves much more exciting. I appreciate your detailed photo tutorials. I love reading your blog! Thank you. Jx


You are a wonderful designer and don't ever think you aren't. My home is full of inspiration from your patterns. I am planning to use these to make a cutlery, napkin, and flower holders to put on a tray and give to my daughter-in-law for her patio. I wish I could enter the drawing but I don't do Facebook.


Think Summer Fun !


Wow, love them & they put my papered tins to shame. Will download later & give them a try soon. Take care & hugs.

How adorable. I went to Wool Warehouse’s site but a couple of colors are out of stock. Have to wait a bit. Also, I didn’t see Citron. They call it Citronelle. Same thing?? Thanks for all of your ideas. Now I have to get some canned goods!!


Thank you so much, Lucy! I love these and have entered the draw. I plan to make some of these regardless of winning or not. By pure luck I happen to have a large number of tins that I've been saving up for 'something' and now I know what that will be . . .

Lovely idea Lucy, but mostly a massive thank you for sharing your patterns free of charge. So many bloggers these days expect you to become a patron before you can access their patterns. The amount of work you put in with instructions is phenomenal, really I can’t thank you enough.x

Your posts can NEVER be "long-winded", they are bright, beautiful moments that augment our days with such deliciousness (and I'd venture to bet that even who say they prefer the shorter ones love them just as much!). It is always such a treat to find a new photo on your front page when I serendipitously check-in, because that means a new post from you in the Attic. Such a treat!


Oh the tin cosies are so pretty! Love love love them! I’m also excited to have a go at the organic cotton yarn!! Thank you for the patterns!


Gorgeous Lucy. I use a large tin with a piece of string tied around it to hold knives and forks when we have a barbie. I can now knit it a coat. 😁😁❤️🌺


Lovely, I am SUCH a fan of organic cotton, it's just wonderful. Really gorgeous colours as well, I am off to have a browse and think what I might make. Absolutely love your tin covers, just brilliant. CJ xx


Love them and can't wait to try the patterns out ..... now which one first 🤔

These tin covers are so sweet! I had to download the patterns to make as a gift for my sister & also for my kitchen window. I enjoy reading your blog every week.


Love them, Lucy. Absolutely gorgeous... Just to add that you are a professional designer and my favourite one on my favourite blog ❤️
