Annie’s Hook and Needle Club – Kit 26 – Cuddle-Up

2015-01-19 13.44.42

The nice thing about joining Annie’s Hook and Needle Club is on the winter days that I look out the window and see snow quickly accumulating and the wind blowing. You know, those day I know I would never venture out to go to the yarn store. The perfect day to plan a snow day of crocheting. I know the mail man always delivers a new and exciting project for me to start.

I always use my slow cooker on these days, so that if I get so engrossed in my crocheting I will not have to stop and make dinner. Or in some cases, forget to make dinner.

This months snow day brought with my 26th kit from Annie’s, a cute little car seat blanket.

The kit came with five unmarked skeins of of light weight (3) in five different colors. The colorful small afghan will be in yellow, light green, blue, pink and white.

As with all the kits it came with two easy level patterns, one for knitting and one for crocheting. And with all the kits I will be completing the crocheted project.

The kit is made of twelve squares in alternating colors and edged in the white. The stitches are all basic stitches of the chain stitch, single crochet and double crochet.

This is also a great kit for anyone who would like some working knowledge of sewing squares together. It is small enough not to be overwhelming, a perfect lesson if this is an area you have little experience with.

I am looking forward to starting this kit, it looks like a fun kit to open and plunge my hook into. Remember that snow days are always wonderful to plan for crocheting and finishing a small project. What do you enjoy doing on snow days? Would love to get some ideas from you.
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.
