So in this blog we wanted to walk you through a few of the highlights many of which are adventures into new areas for us and about which we are very excited!
Next up we'd like to mention our new crochet kits. We've totally fallen for the way of the hook and although knitting will always be our first love we're very pleased to have some fabulous new designs with Toft's usual take on classic with a twist. It's so hard to choose between crochet granny bag, giant crochet scarf and our new baby blanket, plus these cute slippers (make two pairs from one kit) and crochet square wristwarmers, we want to crochet them all!
You might be wondering at this point why the title for this blog post since we've been ranting away about everything but socks, well here we go. We have three exclusive new socks designed by some very talented ladies with whom it's been a pleasure to work.
Last but certainly not least are a combination of cables and lace designed for us by the talented Mandy Yates (whilst studying for her Btec in fashion design, how does she find the time?). Without knowing each others designs these three talented designers have created a perfect trio which compliment each other perfectly. Mandy's socks combine a stunning lace back panel with a cable along the front of the foot.
We'd like to thank all three designers for their time, patience (we know it took quite a bit of ripping back on occasions Mandy!) and for working with Toft.
We are sure to blog about the collection again quite soon but remember it's available online now and the Toft tour is back on the road with Manchester this weekend for Creative Stitches and Hobbycrafts show at Event City. Closely followed by Spirit of Christmas Olympia, Ally Pally and Harrogate so hopefully we'll see you soon.
