Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Kit 28 – Tagalong Totes


March has not gone the way I would have liked, I had planned on crocheting and creating all month long. But life happens, and sometimes God seems to have other plans. This month I said good bye to three friends and one family member by being present at their final homecoming by attending their funerals. This is the first time in a long time I was really glad to see the end of March on the horizon.

March did have other events happen; in addition to scheduling a series of children classes to teach at my local college I also received my 28th kit from Annie’s Hook & Needle Club. This month brought me the perfect kit for an upcoming gift, three Tagalong Totes. I had someone request a tote for their cell phone, so the timing is great for this reason alone.

The kit will take a little more time then the others as the pattern calls for size 3 cotton. The kit came with about 200 yards of each pumpkin, red and caramel. The thinner thread and the size 7 steel crochet hook (which I supply) seems to take a little longer for me to complete. But I believe I will be happy with the end results from the extra effort.

In addition to the three balls of thread that came in the kit, It also came with six patterns. One for knitting and one for crocheting of each Eyeglasses Case (which would also be good for the cellphone I had mentioned earlier), a coin purse and a makeup bag.

The pattern is marked easy so this would be a great project for someone who would like to travel a new road and get some experience with crocheting with thread. The only stitches you will need to have mastered is a chain stitch, single crochet and double crochet. There is one speciality stitch the long double crochet which can you easily master if you already know the double crochet.

I am looking forward to ending this month with this kit crocheted and in a box ready to be mailed in time to give as gift for their upcoming celebration. This month Annie’s sent me exactly what I had been looking for.

Are you crocheting a gift right now someone? Please share you project, I would love to share in your excitement.

Until next week, 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.

    I really enjoy your blog posts and I have added a link to your site on my blog. My mother used to crochet the most beautiful doilies and tablecloths with tiny threads/crochet string. She would frequently ‘sugar starch’ her creations, like the swans and bowls she would make!

    I recently began migrating my old site over to my WordPress blog. It’s called “Slipping Stitches” – my URL is in my name of ‘parearau’ which is part of my online presence that I’ve had for almost 13 years now. Bear with while I transfer my project photos from my old site 🙂 The image on my header is a photo of a blanket I made last year, based on Sarah London’s “Apache Tears” blanket stitch.

  2. I am so excited that you have been enjoying my posts. Your Web page looks like it is going to be a good one. I subscribed to it this morning. Happy Blogging!!!!
