Last week I finally made it to the craft group which originally stoked my love of crochet. This group meets at a local library and I can pop in and participate without being the host (y’all…being a Library chick means you are often on). As I was working up a hat (natch) and chatting with one of the the ladies there, Linda, she shared that she was not working on anything because she has been in a crafting slump and could not find a thing to get her needles moving. Linda still makes her way to group because she likes to see what other people are working on and while the soup is still there, she gets inspired.
I dig it. I had lost my crojo, leaving my poor crochet hooks abandoned in a drawer while my needles clicked away. I was this close to getting rid of all of my crochet related material but then I got an e-mail from Quarto Knows asking me to check out one of the new kits, Sweet & Tasty Treats by Kristen Rask 12 Delectable Designs (ISBN: 9780760355107) and once again I find that it’s NOT that I have lost my crojo….I had not found a thing that inspired me!
What’s in the Box?
There are six kits coming out this fall, including Sweet & Tasty Treats by Kristen Rask. Each kit includes a full-color book of 12 patterns and all the supplied you need for your first two projects (a crochet hook, a tapestry needle, yarn, embroidery floss, felt, and stuffing).
The kit has easy to follow directions with photos to help guide as you create. The kit provides enough material to get started on two projects and the selected project is a donut from a designed in PA!
Having all of the materials on hand was very useful. Not having to fumble around looking for stuffing or an embroidery needle helped me actually complete my project instead of having a WIP languishing in a project bag somewhere.
The projects work up quickly and it is so satisfying to see something come together especially after you’ve been telling yourself that “you cannot do it.”
A stitch marker is helpful. The projects are worked in the round and I fully own that I have challenges working in the round.
Below is a video of my project and visit me on Instagram to see the completed project that I gifted to The Bee. (She was a little put out because I told her I was making donuts and it was not one she could consume!)
Come back next week for a giveaway! Quarto has generously agreed to giveaway a kit to a Say it Rah-shay reader and you readers can give the gift of crochet to a friend.
Thank you again Quarto for giving me my crojo back and getting me hooked again!
r’s note: I was provided a kit from Quarto Knows to facilitate this review. All thoughts are my own and honest opinion.
