Learn to Crochet with TOFT – Giveaway

Can you crochet?  I certainly can’t!  And neither could Kerry Lord when she decided to have a go at teaching herself with the help of Youtube just two weeks before the birth of her son. It is widely believed that crocheting can reduce stress and help with depression, anxiety, sickness and in the case of TOFT founder, Kerry Lord, it can help with the anxieties of pregnancy too. Kerry managed to crochet fourteen different animals in just two weeks and has recently published a “how to” book called Edward’s Menagerie with step-by-step crochet patterns for over 40 different animals accessible to those just beginning to crochet right through to the most proficient crafter!   *Disclamer – I have received no compensation for this post*
