Creative Reading: Edward’s Menagerie Birds & Giveaway!
As y’all have probably noticed I’m a little [Read: a lot!] partial to crochet, so when I get the chance to see a copy of a new crochet book, I literally jump at the chance.
Kerry Lord, founder and creative director of The Toft Alpaca Shop, has released her brand new book – Edward’s Menagerie Birds. For fans of Kerry’s other crochet characters from Edward’s Menagerie this collection will not disappoint!
With forty designs to choose from each for a different specimen of bird there is literally something for everyone – from Sophia the Flamingo and Alan the Magpie, to Elvis the cockatoo and Margot the swan, there is a feathered friend that is sure to steal your heart!
Not only that, each of the designs can be made up in four different sizes, so whether you like mini makes or super sized charters your crochet fit will be satisfied! As with all of Kerry’s patterns, the instructions are clearly presented and easy-to-follow even for novices, plus each make is categories with a skill rating to help you identify which birds used which techniques – so you can build your skills as you go!
The only real trouble with this book is deciding which of these feathered friends to crochet first!
To celebrate the launch of this wonderful new book, I have a very exciting giveaway for you crochet fans! How would you – and your family – like to head over to The Toft Aplaca Shop, take part in a free crochet workshop and meet the gorgeous alpacas on a farm tour? Yes my friends, I have one family ticket up for grabs to go join in the fun and celebrations in Wiltshire with Kerry and the Toft Team!
The family ticket is for 2 adults and up to three children and will gain you entry to the free workshop, meet the team (and most importantly the alpacas!) and take part in the farm tour at The Toft Alpaca Shop in Warwickshire – travel to the event/ accommodation is not included – on Friday the 28th August.
So, how do you enter? Easy! Simply leave a comment sharing why you’d love to win! This giveaway is for UK residents only and the winner will be picked at random and announced on the 25th August – Good Luck!
