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.

Have you seen the crochet canopy in Spain? I thought of you immediately. Not sure if I can paste a link so Google Alhaurín de la Torre Crochet. It's amazing.


I so enjoy reading your updates and the lovely photos you share! Blogs definitely have a value to me as most are now Vlogs. After many years of knitting I am just beginning to dabble in crochet. There is a beginner market bag pattern that I am excited to try.


This looks so lovely and peaceful. I'm an American and haven't had the ability to travel much, and I'm also quite a homebody. I enjoy your patterns and seeing where you've traveled - sort of like a vicarious vacation for me :)


Hello Lucy,
A dutch website is publishing one of your designs with full translation. They refure to you but still wondering if its allowed.


I was in the queue at Melbourne Airport a mind-numbing 27 hours ago (have been through multiple airports since then), and got talking to a lovely fella behind us. It turned out he visited Skipton just 2 weeks after us last year! Very random! And was headed back to your neck of the woods again on this trip he was about to embark on. He hadn't taken the walk through Skipton Woods so I gave him a hearty recommendation. Whilst I am up in a very northern part of the world, sadly will not be visiting the UK this time. But it would be marvelous to join one of your retreats one day! Xox

A great read again as usual; thank you Lucy. I agree with Simon; that picture is definitely an absolutely gorgeous toad.


thank you very much, i like the articles, it can help me

Hi Lucy, oh I'd love to come to the Portugal retreat! The dates don't seem to be there on the website though. When is it taking place?






Your posts are never mundane. They showcase your lovely Yorkshire landscape, brighten our days with bursts of colour, and make us feel we know you by sharing little moments of your days.
There is a set of steps in Ludlow woods where I test my fitness (or lack of!), too. Much more fun than going to a gym! Cx

Hello Lucy. I love, love, love your blog. I check every other day to see if you’ve posted again 😍 I gathered my yarn last winter to make the sweet pea blanket and finally it will be started this week on a much needed get away. We are in autumn now in Victoria Australia 🇦🇺 and just perfect weather to start a new project. Please keep up with your blog. It’s very inspiring and also lovely to know that there are people who have similar interests to myself.


Oh you do live in such a beautiful part of the world Lucy! How lucky you are having that beautiful country side so close to your doorstep🌳🌿🪺🐝🦋!! Whenever I see pics of your walks I just want to sell up here and emmigrate to England! I actually seriously do, well in my idealistic brain anyway. Realistically that would mean leaving family and animals behind so I'll just have to save up for a holiday instead ✈️

Nothing new is happening in my neck of the woods. I'm so busy with work and things that I'm missing out on my own quiet time. I need to start making sure I get even just one afternoon a week set aside for me to crochet, do jigsaw puzzles or anything that is quiet and just for me. Oh, actually, I did go out to one of our local beaches the other evening. It felt so good getting my feet in the sand! Oh it was heaven! I even did a quick 5 minute meditation while there and felt so refreshed and grounded afterwards. I also got a fantastic photo of the sunset 🌅. I'll definitely try to make going to the beach a regular weekly jaunt for sure! Even during the winter.

It sounds like your crochet retreats are going so well. I'm so happy for you. It makes such a difference working with something you love doing.

I'm pleased that you keep blogging, I always enjoy reading it. Thank you for taking us on your walks. All the best with your retreats planned this year. A treat to visit Stylecraft Mill. Have a lovely weekend.

Ann Smith

Thank you for showing your photo of the Stylecraft mill. It has inspired me to order the pattern and yarn for one of the featured jackets. I love reading your blogs and look forward to them. Keep up the good work!

One of the best parts of spring is that beautiful flowers begin to bloom again. It’s wildflower season in many places, with hills and canyons dotted with bright florals. It’s also cherry blossom season, and it’s a joy to experience the beauty of those delicate pink flowers in full bloom. Of course, flowers are more than just pretty and nice-smelling — they also nourish bees and birds and are an important contributor to the ecosystem.


I do so love reading your posts. That simple life you've got going on there, designing and bringing those desgns to life, and those walks with your beloved in those beautiful surroundings, and your lovely small town sound like bliss to me. So pretty and so green! I have come out of my three year fallow season. I'm in the midst of making a blanet using your Yuletide colorway, fairly strictly following your color order but, as I prefer rectangles to squares, I made some adjustments to the pattern to compensate for the end-of-the row turns I'm making. Some bobble rows may or may not have been added to the mix, and some extra rows of double crochet too. ;-) I'm about one-quarter of the way through it now, and I do believe I'm going to like when it's finished. All those beautiful colors and all that lovely texture. Each row is a different color, so there's that weaving in thing too. I suspect I'll need another yarn pak or two before it's done. It's going to be big enough to cover my bed. It feels good to be creating again. Thanks for your beautiful posts and pictures. They make me happy.

oooh i really like those cardigans in the one photo! maybe you'd one day do a tutorial on making something similar?


Just thought I'd mention that your photo is of a Toad, not a Frog, but if one's about so's the other and you probably did see both. We got rid of our pond a few years back so we don't get so many in the garden anymore, I used to enjoy tickling them under the chin as they sat round the edge! Fed one a fly once too! And no, they weren't slimy!


I click every day hoping you will have written. My life is pretty restricted at the moment as my partner has Alzheimers and it's getting difficult to leave him, so it's lovely to read about your walks and see the wonderful northern landscape. With love

I also love reading your blog posts. Blogging doesn't seem to be as popular these days, so look forward to reading , wether its Yorkshire pics or crochet related. Thanks Lucy.

Marjorie Sanderson

As with all your blogs Lucy really enjoyed the photos and reading how life is treating you. You mentioned Hawthorn Blossom and the weather still being and frosty at times my mother in law used to call this time of year Blackthorn Winter as it always seems to be cold when the blossoms are out ,an old country saying I think but often true thought you might be interested. Keep doing your blog Lucy. they are always so enjoyable to read. Have a great weekend. Marjorie


I love your blog and the person you are. As much as it may seem mundane to you I find your blog fascinating. I love seeing the landscape and your culture. I live in Canada and although quite beautiful as well , I’m sure I would think my photos would be mundane. Have a lovely day .

I'm sitting in a city ( Aalborg) in Den,ark....and I love to read your blog and I love to use your patterns♥️. Happy Spring 🌞

Grytsje Doust

Lucy…so enjoy your blogs here in the Deep South of Western Australia! I have a question….the photo with the yarn in the white bookcase….the long green cardigan on the left of the photo….I would love the pattern…was this at the factory or a shop??


I am sooooooo glad that you keep up with your wonderful blog, Lucy! I am no longer on any social media platforms and it’s always nice to come here and read your latest adventures. I usually check for new postings every other day and your blog and a couple other blogs I follow are always very refreshing. Not many bloggers anymore so I’m very glad yours is still around! I too am very introverted and spend my free moments lost in crochet and working in my garden. You remind me so much of myself that we must be kindred souls :)
