Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Kit 40 – Handy Helpers


In March I received my 40th Kit from Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Handy Helpers. What a milestone, I cannot believe what I am already holding my hand and looking at- my 40th kit. Time really does fly when one is doing something they really enjoy.

The kit contains enough cotton yarn to crochet two kitchen towels and one dish cloth. The spring looking yarn is in three colors of green, tan and variegated. The kit also comes with two 1 inch buttons for the towels. So after reaching for my G hook and tapestry needle I will be ready to start.

The three projects are composed of a chain stitch (The Chain Stitch), single crochet (The Single Crochet) and double crochet (The Double Crochet) stitches. And although the patterns are marked easy and beginner there is the small challenge of working a few single crochet (Single Crochet Decrease) and double crochet decreases (Double Crochet decreases).

Personally, I am looking forward to crocheting this kit. Crochet dishcloths are one my favorite items to work. It is one I suggest to my students on a regular basis to crochet. They are small projects that will give you unlimited experience with new stitches and without becoming overwhelming.

If you are in this club with me, what number kit are you crocheting this month? Would love to know there are some crocheter’s who are working their way through the club along side me.

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.
