Whenever I think of winter and crocheting, my mind automatically goes to afghans, sweaters and slippers.  Perfect projects for those long winter nights. Even though I received this kit a while ago, I think it is perfect timing to bring out as the winter season is upon us.

The kit came with three skeins of bulky yarn each about 140 oz. of yarn.  They were nice seasonal colors of gray, blue and beige.  There was enough yarn for two pairs of slippers.  The kit also came with two patterns, one for crocheting and one knitting.  Each pattern also give us the choice of six sizes to choose from.   The kit you will receives provides enough yarn for two pairs of slippers.

Once I provided my own h and J crochet hook and yarn needle for weaving in my ends I was

 good to go.   The pattern was an easy level and very simple to follow making it possible to work the slippers in a few days.   The colors they chose really worked well together, and the yarn made it an enjoyable experience. 

In closing, I have to say I really liked the style and pattern of the slippers.  As they stand out among the other crochet patterns I have seen in the past.  My only warning is make sure you follow the size recommendations and take the time to check your gauge.  As far as stitches you will only need to master the chain stitch and single crochet.

I am rating this kit a 9, losing one point for not being able to re-purchase the yarn for a future project.   It has the Annie’s label, which is disappointing, because I really enjoyed working with it.

If you have not received this kit, you should find yourself a different pattern and crochet some slippers for yourself.  This is the time to do it, early in the winter season so there will be plenty of time to enjoy them.  Or maybe you would prefer to make some up for Christmas, they would make great stocking stuffers.

Until next Monday, keep those hooks flying.
