September is a month where the change of the seasons makes me feel a little bit unsettled and it has to be said, not particularly glad. I am a Summertime girl and at this time of year the slow descent... Continue reading

Honestly, it has given me such a silly amount of pleasure writing the title of today's post, I really am very easily pleased. So today, short and sweet, I am sharing a little bit more of the crochet bumble bee... Continue reading

How long? Three weeks? Have I really been gone from the Attic for that long? It's all been a bit of a blur to be honest, the usual end-of Summer, start-of-school, pre-Yarndale* rush of activity that leaves me breathless and... Continue reading

Thanksfor the heads up re the border colours its meadow that I used, but Lime is very similar so either would work. Will make the change on the tutorial so it’s consistent… thank you! Lucyxxx Sent from Windows Mail From:Typepad Sent:‎Saturday‎, ‎15‎ ‎August‎ ‎2015 ‎12‎:‎31 To:Lucy Attic24 A new comment from “Mary” was received on the page “Harmony Blanket” of the blog “Attic24”. Comment: Beautiful!!! Just finishing up Cosy and might need to make this one next. Is round 6 of the border Lime or Meadow? The list of colors for the border says Meadow but down in the instructions indicates Lime. Thanks for another great pattern!

I can honestly say that I never ever get tired of making and sharing blankets, both in real life and here on my blog. It's almost 8 years to the very day since I first picked up a crochet hook... Continue reading

We are having such crazy-weird stuff happening with our weather this week, with rather an unwelcome amount of rain each day but then also some glorious snatches of incredible sunlight as well. It's been strange, sometimes weirdly warm, damp and... Continue reading

Maybe it was a result of Saturday's day of drizzly rain, but yesterday morning J and I both agreed that we should make the most of a dry day and go out for a short walk somewhere. We are exceptionally... Continue reading

Although I often comment that our Dorset holidays have no schedules or plans attached to them, this is actually not strictly true. When I look back at previous posts {2014 : 2013} I see the repeating images that tell me... Continue reading

I know that there are only two more school runs to get through before our summer holidays begin and I am extraordinarily glad of that fact. It's a busy, tiring, hectic, emotional time on so many levels and we are... Continue reading

Since moving from the outskirts of a city to a rural market town seven years ago, one of the many things I really appreciate is how I feel so much more aware of the seasons. I think there are several... Continue reading

Last night when I uploaded these pictures, I realised that I haven't really talked very much about my current Blanket-In-Progress (my BiP?!). Which is a bit strange as I usually like to talk a LOT about every single bit of... Continue reading
