|Kerry Lord with some of her creations|
Kerry Lord, founder of the Toft Alpaca Shop, took up crochet whilst pregnant - the result being the successful crochet pattern book Edward's Menagerie, named after her son. Toft's crochet jungle project is aiming to raise money both for Birmingham's Children's Hospital and Noah's Ark Children's Hospice.
So what's the plan? Every Sunday in February anyone and everyone are welcome to go to Toft Alpaca, join in the fun and receive free crochet tuition to help make part of the jungle.
The finished jungle will go on display at The Spring Stitching and Knitting Show in March and then on tour throughout the year.
If you have any spare green wool please send it to:
The Toft Alpaca Shop
... or bring it with you to one of their Sunday sessions. I can confirm that Toft has a fabulous cafe with cake and hot drinks that go down a treat whilst crocheting!
