Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Kit 2 (Steppin’ Out Poncho)

I love reading a good mystery, not the ones with blood and gore, but a good old fashioned who done it. I started with Nancy Drew as a child and am now hooked on my recent discovery of Miss Marple and the Murder She Wrote series. Maybe that is why I am so excited about Annie’s Hook & Needle Club; it is like a good mystery waiting to be read, only with yarn and a pattern. I never know from one month to the next what I will be crocheting. I just open up the package and there it is for me to discover, my new crocheting adventure.


Today I received the second kit and my new adventure for this month is the Steppin’ Out Poncho Kit.  I do not believe there is a certain order to which one receives the kits – it seems that everyone randomly receives a different kit.  I know some have received dish clothes their second month while others have gotten Hat & Mittens.  Do you see how it truly is a mystery what I will be crocheting until I open my mailbox.

I am really excited about receiving the Steppin’ Out Poncho second. Since this arrived in time for Easter (or Resurrection Sunday as I like to refer to it) I can wear it with my Easter dress.

The kit came with two skeins of “Simply Soft” grape color yarn.  This is my daughter’s favorite brand of yarn.  The pattern itself is for an experience level crocheter, a beautiful lacy poncho composed of dc cluster’s (3-dc Cluster) and single crochet decrease’s (Single Crochet Decrease).   Plus I will get to put my fringe maker to use.

I am so looking forward to making this, but I need to finish the Filet Mesh for the Tartan Afghan I am working on first. I wonder if I am the only one that struggles with itchy fingers that just wants to crohcet more projects than I could ever make in one life time.


Added bonus: The yarn came with a pattern for shawl that I will put up for future projects.

Until next time keep those hooks flying.


About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.

    Nope you’re not the only one I have three projects going right now. Just finished a cardigan for Abby and will start one for Emma and am working on an E for Em too, and I still have lots I want to do and can’t wait to get the yarn and get started. The poncho looks like fun. Crocheting is great when you’re sick and can’t do much else.:)

  2. Crocheting is also great when you are sitting in the dark. Last night our lights went out and I lit the candles, got out my Kindle keyboard and hubby and I listened to”Endrance The Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage” audiobook while I crocheted by candlight. So grateful I have a hobby I can enjoy that does not require power and my Kindle to help make the time pass. And let’s face it I would look for any excuse to sit and crochet. LeeAnne praying that you are feeling better soon and thanks it is nice to know I am not the only one that has two to three projects at the same time.
