That's an awesome crotchet kit!  You did a nice job on the washcloth!  I love the head band too!

I received a very wonderful crochet kit from Happy_Hooker. I can't believe this is her first swap! She did such an amazing job - went, above and beyond. I love everything - thank you again.  Cheesy

First up everything included in the kit. She sent me so much yarn! So exciting, I love all the colors.


Then I wanted to get a close up of this great needle roll and stitch markers she made. So fun. Click to enlarge. Smiley


Finally, the extras she sent me. A journal, fun crochet stuffies (which my cat immediately stole!), and it's all resting on the waterproof bag it all came in. The bag is such a great idea for shipping! Though my cat is now playing with the octopus and love bug. I managed to save the cupcake for myself!  Cheesy I'm going to use it as a pincushion. I desperately needed one too!

I taught myself to crochet out of that book.  The projects in it are kind of dorky (IMHO), but the instructions for crochet in general are top notch!! 

Great kit!  Lucky you!!!

Great crochet kit!  I love that you are already crocheting! Smiley  I found crochet pretty easy to pick up.

The knit kit is great with the decorated cigar box!  So cute!

 Embarrassed I'm embarrassed, now, to admit that I actually liked one of the shawls and sweaters in that book. Of course, I AM kind of dorky, LOL. Wink

You're right, though - the book is really easy to follow - I managed to crochet a few lines (probably not the technical term) last night. Kind of messy, for now ... I need a bit more practice. It's so fun, though. Very different to work with one needle!
