CUTE KITS

One from the hoard…

As I have confessed in the past I have a weakness for crochet/knit kits. I get drawn in by the cute picture on the box, buy it and then stash itπŸ€” I have a load of them hidden in the garage that I may or may not get round to completing!

The snail came in a crochet kit from Aldi. Everything that I needed to make 2 snails, including a horrible plastic hook. Less complaining Jane! I have made one snail and there is plenty of yarn left, might even be enough to make a third? So for Β£3.99 it was quite good value, not that I will be making another one any time soon. The pattern was quite straightforward and I have finally mastered crocheting in the round without too much swearing πŸ˜‰

I might dig out another kit next month and see how I get on but in the meantime back to my blanket😊

Woolly wishes,

Jane β™‘β™‘β™‘

  1. Such a happy snail. It doesn’t eat the plants so it would be very welcome here. Btw.. Aldi has some good stuff and sometimes you’re lucky to get kits. It’s very nice 😊

    1. Thank you Lisa. I do remember Brian but Dylan the rabbit was my favourite. I’m not a natural hooker but I read somewhere that you can learn a lot from making toys so I’m giving it a go ☺️

  2. I actually stayed away from kits when I started crocheting, and bought books instead ^^ Have quite a lot of the Zoomigurumi books which are really great.

    1. If I ever get through the kits I might invest in a book. Some of the kits I only paid Β£1 for as they were end of line, can’t resist a bargain BUT it’s only s bargain if you are going to use it and mine are festering in the garage πŸ€”

  3. Awww this is so cute!! Our Aldi never has cute things like this, you only get kits for cushions and tops. XD (and socks) At least I don’t remember amigurumi … The colours look great, too!! πŸ™‚

  4. Yay! Your snail turned out really cute! Whimsical is always a good thing! You mentioned the awful plastic hook. I don’t like plastic hooks either. I’ve bought lots of them in the past when I was teaching middle school and we had a crochet club. Finally after a few years I started asking the kids to bring their own hooks, and also I would buy them the metal ones and let them pay me back. πŸ˜€πŸŒ
