Annie’s Hook & Needle Club – Kit 43 – Bath & Spa Set


It has been so long since I have written I feel as if I am starting a new blog. I decided to take a few months off to spend with my family, my daughter and her family were moving to Texas and I desired to try and be with them every minute possible. My daughter is now hundreds of miles away and I am once again turning my attention to my crocheting. I apologize for the delay in any of my responses to your comments. Your insight is important to me. I thank you for dropping back in.

During my hiatus I have received two kits from Annie’s Hook & Needle Club and am now in the process of finishing up an online class I started during the summer.

One of the kits I received was the Bath & Spa Set which included enough yarn to complete a face cloth, back and complexion scrubbie. In the kit was 480 yards of medium (worsted) weight yarn and two patterns for each item. One each in knitting and one each in crochet. To crochet this kit all I needed to supply was a G hook and a tapestry needle.

The kit was rated at an easy level with some popular special stitches, the front and back post double crochet, the slip ring and the single crochet decrease.

The timing of this kit was perfect, as I needed a small project to work on that was not difficult or time consuming to finish. This kit met both requirements. So, on the day I received this kit I opened it immediately and started to crochet, finishing the face cloth and complexion scrubbie the very first day. The back scrubbie was completed a few days later when I found another free day to crochet. It was a relaxing and fun project to work on with just a few challenging stitches to make it worth my while.

The yarn was easy to work with and crocheted beautifully, I loved the color. But I might be biased since blue is one of my favorite colors. I am just sorry that the yarn once again came in unmarked labels making it impossible for me to repurchase more.

The instructions were well written and simple to follow, even the special stitches were well explained. With all of this in mind I am rating the kit a 9, losing only one point for the yarn being in unmarked labels. As an avid crocheter it does put a damper on things when you really enjoy working with a yarn, knowing you will never be able locate another skein.

Looking forward to getting back in touch with you. Would love to hear about what is your favorite yarn to work with, and other crocheting projects you could share.

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.

  1. These are stunning, I love the colour. Wow.
    And welcome back, good to hear from you again. 🙂

  2. Thanks…It is really good to be back.

    Sounds like something I might get into, the kit thing. But, am a little surprised that they do not include the yarn name, type, etc. to make it easier for people to continue making the item(s). I would write to them and ask so that you can purchase more in different colors for gifts.

  4. Thank you for the suggestion, I might do that. I have really enjoying being in the club, my biggest complaint has been the unmarked labels of yard.

    Hey there. I’ve been following you for a few months now and started with Annie’s H&N club back in March, I think it was. I recently received this kit and was looking particularly for your review. How interesting that it was your 43rd kit, but it’s only like my 8th or so. I’ve done the face scrubbie; it was easy and turned out cute. The back scrubber was not difficult, but I did find it tedious. Those fpdc/bpdc’ s really got to me. There are SO MANY ROWS! And I learned from your blog that the handle for the back scrubber is actually called the Japanese foundation chain. I found it sort of difficult to get my hook into the back of the stitch, but I loved the finished product. I will start on the face cloths later this week, I think, after a short break. I’m tired of the yarn for now. Happy crocheting!

  6. I am glad you are enjoying the club as much as I am. I use the scrubby every night when I am washing my face. It really does work really well. Happy crocheting ….
