Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Kit 38 – Plastic Bag Holder & Tawashi



The first kit of 2016 is for use in the kitchen. It is a Plastic Bag Holder and Tawashi. I hate to admit it but the first thing I did after opening the kit and looking over the pattern was looked up the word Tawashi.
The definition that I found on the internet is as follows:
A tawashi is made of various materials besides fiber of a hemp palm, and sponges, and are used for rubbing and washing and get the name from Japan. I always used these in my kitchen to clean dishes with, but like many others I just did not know the name of them.

The kit came with 4 skeins (approximately 130 yards each) of medium worsted weight yarn. There is one of each of the fall colors of brown, green, russet and coral and 1/2 yard of 1/4 inch wide elastic. I will need to use my 7 hook and tapestry and sewing needle and matching sewing thread to complete the projects.

The pattern is marked easy and comes in a choice of knitting or crocheting. I am looking forward to crocheting this and adding these items to my gift box for future use.

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.
