Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Kit 17 – Elegant Evening Bag


This months kit arrived in the mail yesterday from Annie’s Hook & Needle Club, it is called an Elegant Evening Bag. In the seventeen kits that I have received with the club, this is the second kit so far that has been a purse – the first being the Weekend Getaway Purse. (Kit 12:  Weekend Getaway Review). In this kit I will be working a smaller purse that would be perfect for a night out on the town with my hubby.

The kit came with one skein of Nylon cord, a lovely shade of red in the thickness of 2 and unmarked once again. I actually would like to know the brand name of this skein, I really like the feel and color of the cord. In addition to the skien the kit also came with a magnetic snap closure and a 1 1/2 inch decorative button.

In order to crochet the purse I will need to supply a F and G hook, a tapestry and sewing needle and matching sewing thread.

The kit came with two patterns one for knitting and one for crocheting. I will be working the crocheting pattern that required the skill of an intermediate level crocheter. The stitches you must be familiar with before crocheting the purse are the chain stitch (The Chain Stitch), the single crochet (The Single Crochet), slip stitch (Slip Stitch) and the speciality stitch of a variation of the single crochet.

I am looking forward to working on this pattern since I love the challenge of trying new stitches and the variations of the single crochet will be one for me. I actually can see a tutorial in the near future.

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.
