In January this year I joined Annie’s Caring Crochet Kit Club. Annie’s is a great company and resource for anybody that loves crafting. Besides the great selection of crafts supplies and online classes Annie’s also has quite a few kit clubs for crafters and it seems like the kit-order idea is really taking off lately, not just kits containing arts and crafts supplies but also food and cooking, vanity self-pampering items, environmentally friendly products, etc.
The reason I chose Annie’s Caring Crochet Club is that it’s a really special one because it gives me an opportunity to donate my crochet items to organizations that are dedicated to distributing my creations to people in need. With my subscription I will receive a monthly crochet kit containing project pattern and supplies. And once I’m finished with crocheting I have the choice to keep the items or ship them to a charity organization that Annie’s has selected to feature that month. I think it’s a wonderful and convenient way to participate in volunteer projects and share the love!
WATCH MY SECOND UNBOXING VIDEO
My welcome crochet kit contained a project to crochet two caps for chemo patients. The leaflet in the package included two patterns, helpful crochet information, as well as the introduction and address of this month’s organization – Knots of Love. As for supplies, the kit provided two skeins of Premier yarn, 3 different sizes of crochet hooks, tapestry needle and handy crochet stitch guide.
Just like with my first unboxing video I decided to review the contents of the kit as well as the finished caps. (Watch my first unboxing video here: https://handmadebyraine.com/unboxing-craftsy-crochet-scarf-kit/
The patterns were fairly easy to follow and despite a few errors (one of them was easily fixed by following the revision sheet included in the package) I was able to crochet the two caps looking exactly the same as pictured on the pattern booklet. Please see my video above for more detailed review of the pattern and finished caps. I chose to ship my caps to Knots of Love because that was the reason I joined the club in the first place.
Based on my welcome kit experience I will definitely keep my subscription and I can’t wait to start my second Caring Crochet project and learn about a new organization to donate my items. And I hope my review post and unboxing video will inspire you to do the same because it surely is a rewarding experience!
