knitting with toft



beehive hat kit c/o |toft|

i was recently sent this beehive hat kit from toft; a british company who offer eco yarn (spun in the uk) in a huge range of kits.
it's super exciting for me to have the chance to work with such a great company - their ethos and products are so appealing, and i can't recommend them enough, whether you want to learn to knit yourself, or gift a kit to a friend.

the kit itself is great - the wool is some of the best i have ever used, and the pom pom is fluffy-cloud soft. i haven't knit anything using circular needles for a while so i really enjoyed knitting the hat up. the instructions are easy to follow, and i think the beehive design works really well and also makes for a really nice fit.
i also love the drawstring tote it comes in as it meant i could easily take it to work and knit at lunch too!

if you're still stuck for christmas present ideas then definitely check toft out, or just treat yourself to a little something (that's totally allowed!).
if i thought i would be any good at making amigurumi toys, some of |these guys| would definitely be on my list :)

  3. How cute! That wool looks so lovely~ I want to touch it. (Must run to my yarn store soon and touch all of the wool!)

    Those kits on their website are awesome! I especially like the snowflake pillow one. d^___^b
