Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Kit 16 – Pamper Yourself Bath Set

2014-04-04 17.52.49

I have been in the Annie’s Hook & Needle Club for sixteen months now. It seems the older I become the faster time seems to dissipate. It seems like just last month I received my first kit and was so excited to get started. Now sixteen months later, I find myself still looking forward to checking the mail box. There are some kits I have enjoyed more then others, to be expected of course – yet I love seeing the mailman show up with packages still.

This months kit has perfect timing for the craft store opening in our small town. The owner was wanting gifts geared toward Mother’s Day, ASAP. It is a “Pamper Yourself Bath Set”. I thought I would add some bubble bath and soaps and place it all in a basket and wrap it all up pretty with a ribbon.

Although this was the fifth kit I received for something around the house, (Kit 3: Learn a Stitch Dishcloth Review,Kit 6:  Woven Table Runner Review, Kit 8:  A Basket of Sunflower Coaster ReviewKit 15:  Elegant Table Runner Review) it is the first one for the bathroom. The “Pamper Yourself Bath Set” came with two “unmarked” skeins of medium weight cotton yarn – one in off white and the other in lime green.

It also came with a set of patterns with instructions for either crocheting or knitting a washcloth, a soap bag and a headband. This also marked the second kit that is at an Intermediate level. The first was my second kit “Kit 2:  Steppin Out Poncho Review“. In addition to mastering the stitches of the chain (The Chain Stitch), single crochet (The Single Crochet), double crochet (The Double Crochet) you will have two added challenges for your adventure;

The first – by completing the three projects you will gain experience in crocheting both in rows and rounds. The second is that you will be making two tassels for the soap bag. I love when a pattern calls for some added embellishments. Not a lot, just enough to add some distinctive and stylish elegance to a project. The only added tool I will need is my G crochet hook.

Do you have any special Mother’s Day Gifts planned? If so I would love to hear about your ideals.

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.

  1. I just made my Mom a market bag. Now I am trying to figure out Father’s Day.

  2. I am sorry it mu response took so long, the email went to my spam for some reason. I think that would be great gift, I use my market bags all the time. Father’s Day can be a little harder I believe. Here are a few suggestions I hope will help. There is the usual sweaters, scarfs and hats, but there is also some great patterns out there for sports, key chains, book markers, golf club covers, bags to keep the tee’s in and remote control caddy for the arm of his favorite chair.
