This month’s hobby is crochet! How fun! To be fair, this isn’t a totally new hobby to me. I’ve done a few crochet projects in the past, but nothing very advanced, mainly just single crochet rectangles like blankets and scarves. New Hobby Box does not usually send printed instructions, but instructions and tutorials can be found on their website.
These are the supplies that were included. I have never had or even seen such a nice, comprehensive crochet needle & accessory kit! I’m happy to have this!
This was my practice piece. I learned and practiced a few different types of crochet maneuvers here. From the bottom up is a chain, a few rows of single crochet, a couple of rows of double crochet, and a final row of stitching together, which is why it curves.
Here’s my completed crochet project! It’s a Yoda hot beverage koozie! How cute! I think he turned out pretty good for a first try at something complex. Although I think when he’s actually on a cup he looks more like a sad puppy than a Jedi master.
Verdict: This month’s New Hobby Box was great! It was fun to add on to an existing skill with some new stitches. And now that I have this cool kit I might just keep at it! I feel like the past few months have been pretty hit-or-miss with me in terms of project selection and quality of supplies, but this month was rock solid.
Spoiler Alert: October’s hobby is yoga!
