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

Image

The “Pamper Yourself Bath Set” brought with it a new twist on something I have crocheted many times over the years. All the times I have crocheted dish cloths over the years, it had never occurred to me to crochet a wash cloth. Go figure. As I was crocheting this set and mulling it over in my mind, I came to the conclusion that I might like having a few crocheted wash cloths in my 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. Making this once again impossible to duplicate exactly with the same yarn. My only real complaint with the Annie’s Hook and Needle Club is that there are too many kits with unmarked yarns. Other then that I have been satisfied with the kits. Although the yarn itself was easy to work with, I would suggest taking the time to roll it into balls for easier handling.

There are three items in the kit to crochet, a wash cloth, a soap bag and a headband giving the crocheter a variety of skills to develop while working the kit. The wash cloth and headband is worked in rows and the soap bag is worked in rounds. The stitches used to complete the kit are the chain stitch (The Chain Stitch ), the single crochet (The Single Crochet), and the double crochet (The Double Crochet), I added links for the tutorials for each of them.

The kit provided patterns for each both in crocheting and knitting and I had to provide a G hook and yarn needle. The pattern was an intermediate level and very easy to follow. The problem I would foresee is that some of the rows are detailed; I used a stick em to help me keep track of where I was.

I decided to package this for a new craft store opening in our community. I added the items to a basket and added some bubble bath, soap, lotion and rose soap petals for a more attractive gift basket.

With all of this in mind I rated the kit a 9, losing one point for the unmarked yarn labels. It was an enjoyable kit to crochet and I could see myself crocheting at least one or more of the items again.

Would be interested in hearing if any crocheter have crocheted a wash cloth for your bath experience and what you thought.

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.
