book review // edward's menagerie
My first peek at the book Edward's Menagerie had me instantly wanting to see more.
When I was contacted about this title, I was both excited and hesitant. You see, Edward's Menagerie is a book of animals to crochet. And I don't really crochet (I have a little, but it always takes great effort). So I told the representative for the book this. I also told her that I really liked what I saw, and would still like to blog about it. I told her that my review wouldn't be based on my being able to actually make anything, but she said that would be fine. Really, I think the reason is because I told her what my review would be. Would you like to hear it?
This is so cute!
And it is. Kerry Lord, the author of this book and creator of all these sweet animals started to crochet when she was expecting her son. She kept making them and soon she had created a whole menagerie of creatures for Edward. Just look at these darlings!
How could you resist them?!? Even though I have no idea if I can make these animals, I know that I want to try. The techniques section looks quite clear to me, so maybe it's time that I pick up a hook again?
For all my crochet friends, check out Edward's Menagerie from TOFT Alpaca Shop, and while you're there, be sure to admire all of the gorgeous yarn that was used to create these animal friends!
