Kerry Lord - TOFT
I first picked up a ball of yarn ten years ago and began an exciting journey of inspiration and exploration into the world of knitting and crochet.
Throughout the last decade, I have remained motivated by a desire to make things that I like, whether that be knitting my own hat or crocheting a dinosaur for a new nephew.
I believe in only using the best quality natural materials in order to deliver stunning results with maximum pleasure and ease throughout the making process. With a growing young family and expanding business, I find myself increasingly busy and so more than ever when I do grab time to make just for me, I want to ensure that the finished results will be super-soft, supple and long-lasting.
I have always been motivated by the process itself of creating something with simply 250 metres and a pointy tool. The sense of satisfaction at the completion of a project is second to none, not to mention the psychological advantages to unwinding with a good ball of wool and with your hands engaged in creating.
I established TOFT in order to share my knowledge and enthusiasm of the making process, and to show others just how easy it is. I accidentally designed ‘Edward’s Menagerie’ while attempting to make toys for my over-due unborn son. As a beginner crocheter very familiar with yarn and knitting needles, but very unfamiliar with this new craft, I rapidly discovered a seriously addictive hobby. Motivated by the feedback from other people when seeing my creations for the first time – first an elephant, and then a bunny - a whole new side to TOFT was born at the same time I became a new mum.
#edsanimals are perfect for both complete beginners and the more experienced crafter. Each critter is fast to make and because the patterns following a limited number of stitches and techniques, it doesn’t take long before you find you can make them without too much concentration. The only warning I will give you is just how addictive making these characterful critters is! Half the people you show them to will want you to teach them how to crochet and the other half will want you to make them one (or a dozen)!
