Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Kit 35 – Happy Feet Review

2015-12-23-08-09.jpg

This November I received the Happy Feet Kit from Annie’s Hook & Needle Club. I will have to admit that this kit was delightful to crochet.

Although it is an intermediate pattern, the directions were clear, concise and simple to follow. In addition to the use of the basic stitches of the chain stitch (The Chain Stitch), single crochet (The Single Crochet) and double crochet (The Double Crochet), the pattern also calls for the more advanced stitches of the foundation double crochet, single crochet (Single Crochet Decrease) decrease and double crochet decrease (Double Crochet decrease).

The kit came with everything needed to complete one pair of socks with the exception of a D crochet hook. Every kit comes with two patterns to choose from- a knitted one and a crochet one, and of course, I always work the crochet pattern.

The yarn was two skeins of fine weight variegated yarn in black, blue and purple. The yarn comes wrapped in an unmarked label, which was a disappointment for me since I really enjoyed working with it. It prevents me from working with this particular yarn.

I was concerned that maybe the socks would be itchy when wearing, but to my delight they were very comfortable and warm.   Cleaning and maintaining the fabric requires washing machines to be set on gentle cycle in cool wash, and the dryer on gentle dry, which will make care for them easy to handle.

I am rating this kit a 9, losing only one point for the yarn being in unmarked labels. I can easily see myself crocheting a few more pairs of socks for the upcoming winter.

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.
