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

Hope you are okay Lucy, getting a bit concerned we haven't seen you around for quite awhile. Miss reading your posts.


Hey, just checking in and making sure that you're okay. Probably putting your feet up and we're all annoying you hey? Can't wait to read another post even if its a tiny one x

Brenda Drury

Hello Lucy, how are you? I hope you are feeling better, missing your lovely posts from Yorkshire. Wishing you well and hope you will be back in the attic soon.

Easter Blessings for you and your family. Hope this spring is kind and you are feeling better soon.

Lucie Karasová

Krásný den,
doufám, že jste zdravá a že je vse v pořádku. Jste světlo a máte schopnost prozářit dny všem kolem vás. Snažím se celý život o totéž.Je krásné vědět, že jsou na světě lidi jako vy. Láska k obyčejným věcem je velmi uklidňující.
Mnoho lásky přeje Lucie.


Hope you are feeling better.
I’ve been trying to order the Harbour wool kit from Wool Warehouse to make a blanket for my youngest to take away to uni in Sept - but I’ve noticed they are out of stock of a lot of your kits. Does anyone know if there’s a problem or should I just be patient & wait for them to restock? Thanks.

Just stopped by as revisiting the blog. Something so comforting about to see you are still writing and hooking. I have finally got around to making the Dune blanket. Early days but this pattern is a keeper - rhythmical and and easy enough to chat over. Thank you x

Jools Morgan-Jones

Sorry to hear you have been ill, Lucy -I hope you're on the mend. Having had a bout of illness myself lately, which is draining my energy still, I can appreciate your frustration at being forced by your body to rest. It will pass, though - we must both keep reminding ourselves of that xx

Hope you are doing better.

Catching up after my recent operation. Been waiting since last November for this surgery. Finally had it. The excitement of finally getting this wound fixed is outweighing the pain and discomfort from plastic surgery. My donor site is weeping every time I do something, so resting on my bed and crocheting or watching YouTube.
Must be feeling better as I was actually thinking of how to use the two bags of yarn (Lucy colours) that are lurking in my wardrobe.
The Ripple blanket that is currently a WIP is too heavy to support on my legs at present. Thanks to the donor site being on my thigh. So working on a filet pattern in the round.
I am sure that you are over that bug by now. Hope you didn't share it with anyone else in the family.
Take care.

Just checking in, sorry to hear that you have had a bug :( I'm hoping that you are getting back to yourself! This is the first winter blanket CAL that I did not participate in many years, and I missed it so! But I have been concentrating on using up some of my Lucy Leftovers, using the Harmony pattern to keep myself busy. I have found that I much prefer to use your color guidance than tweaking it on my own, LOL! So glad I found your blog, all those years ago :) You have brought crochet back to me, and a crafty "friend" and community I didn't know I was missing. Thank you, Lucy <3

Sorry you've been unwell, but glad you are on the mend. I had a really bad cold last week, which turned out to be covid - again! I'm starting to feel a bit better now though. In other news I finished my Springfrost blanket a couple of days ago, love it so much! Also I have a new vlog out, only a year after my first one!


Glad your feeling so much better, it always seems winter viruses linger longest for some reason. My fibromyalgia has been torture, I think its the varying temperatures no 2 days are the same, and my poor body is at 6s and 7s lol. But spring is on the way lighter days and nights and lovely nature waking up it'll be lovely 😍

noelle sweeney

Oh Glad to hear you are feeling better!


So sorry to hear you’ve been unwell Lucy and felt so poorly. There are so many vicious bugs going around at the moment but I’m really glad you’re starting to feel more like yourself again. Take care and please don’t try and do too much too soon. Love and hugs Becki xxxx 🥰🤗


Having recently discovered your pages as recommended by a friend I must thank you for such a heart warming and inspiration little site!

You are everything I would like to be and I am hoping to commit my ideas into action this year!

I too fall in love every time I'm out in nature whatever the weather. The colours, the shapes I want to bring then all home and recreate into something arty.

Do you have anything to do with kingfishers or foxes? I spotted a KF recently for the first time and am obsessed!


Glad to hear you are feeling better. Take care!


Sorry to hear you have been unwell Lucy and really hope you are on the mend now.
Those chillies and tomatoes look wonderful and I can almost taste the soup. Yummy.
Have a great week.


I love that print. The pure white mount and frame set it off perfectly. Glad you're feeling better :) x


Sorry you've been unwell, I hope you're back to full strength very soon. I remember how much my boys loved toasting marshmallows at a holiday property with a woodburner one year. I love the lavender photo of the early morning canal, stunning. I really love the winter months now, although I didn't used to. I like marching about in the wild weather then the lovely feeling of coming home to a cosy house. Hope you have a good week, CJ xx

My creative life

I'm glad that you are feeling better Lucy. Take care, Cathy x


Glad to hear you’re feeling better! When I was a kid, one of our special meals was hot dogs roasted in the fireplace in the winter, then s’mores. Have you ever tried burning driftwood? I seem to remember the salts give different colors?? I live far from the ocean, so not a lot of chances to try it.


We have both had a COVID mimicking virus which wiped us out. Himself is still coughing at multi decibel loudness which does my nerves no good at all.
You rest up and keep warm. Hibernating is definitely the way to go. You can emerge from your burrow when you see the sun is warm enough to warm your bones!
I’ve just finished the borders on my two Springfrost lap blankets. The winter is still here so my sister will appreciate them!


Big hug,
Miriam from Italy

This was lovely to read with my morning cuppa. Glad you are on the mend xx
