With some non-crocheting projects behind me I am at a point in my life where I can once again give “Crochet With Passion” my attention. I have missed blogging more then I would like to admit. I feel as if I it has been an eternity, yet in reality the time has only been a few months.

Upon my return I find myself with three Annie’s Hook & Needle club kits to crochet. The first I already wrote about The Elegant Handbag ( ). The second is the Whimsical Storage Bowl and the third I will post about next time, is a tote bag.

The Whimsical Storage Bowl is not exactly something I would have picked out for myself, but oftentimes it is good to go outside our own likes and dislikes and discover an appreciation for something different. This is one of those times for me.

The kit came with two unmarked skeins of green worsted weight yarn and small balls of yellow and orange worsted weight yarn. To complete the project I must have an H hook, a tapestry needle and some stitch markers. The kit also came with two patterns, one in crocheting and one in knitting. I will be completing the pattern in crocheting.

The pattern is marked at an easy level, making this a great project for a new or more experienced crocheter. For any new crocheter thinking about doing this kit, the only speciality stitch you will need to know is the single crochet decrease. The other stitches are your basic stitches of the chain stitch and the single crochet.

The finished size of the bowl will be five inches deep and nine inches in diameter making this a nice piece to accent a table top or to fill a gap on a book shelf.

Looking forward to this new adventure in crocheting with Annie Hook & Needle Club May Kit.

Until next time, keep those hooks flying.
