Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Kit 20 – Festive Fall Table Toppers

2014-07-30-07-23 

I cannot believe this is my twentieth  kit from Annie’s Hook & Needle Club.  There is still a lot more kits to come. From what I have researched on the internet there is at least sixty that I know of.  

With July came the “Festive Fall Table Toppers.  It is a pattern for crocheted vegetables.  Not really something I would have chosen for myself, but that is the reason I decided to join the club-to learn outside my tastes and comfort zones.  

The kit came with four skeins of fine sport wool yarn in the hues of red, orange, green and purple.  In addition to the yarn it came with six patterns; 3 for crocheting and 3 for crocheting  a radish, carrot and an eggplant replicas.   I will need to borrow a C crochet hook, a tapestry needle and stitch markers from my own supplies to complete the kit.  The pattern is an intermediate one having only one speciality stitch in addition to the basic ones, and that is the Single crochet decrease.  

I am currently working between two projects, the “Elegant Evening Bag” and “The Classic Tote Bag”.  I am happy to say that I have almost completed them both.  I like the Classic Tote Bag so much I am actually crocheting two of them.  I will write more about them in my reviews later this week.  

With one stitch at a time I am slowly catching up on my kits and am looking forward to completing a project for one of the grandchildren.  We all know that summer fun makes crocheting take a back seat sometimes.    

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.
