Hooked Together is my huge crochet blog project. I go through a blog’s blogroll and check out all of the blogs they read. Then I report back here, sharing their links to crochet, craft and other blogs. In the end, I’m going to put all of this together into a big display so that we can all see how the crochet community is connected within itself and to the larger craft community. It’s a big undertaking but it is oh so much fun.

Last week I looked at the blogroll for Bridge and Beyond. This is a blogspot blog, though, so it also has a “blogs I follow” page and I wanted to look at that section as well so that’s what we’re looking at in this week’s edition of Hooked Together. I was pressed for time this week so I only got through half of the blogroll. I’ll be doing the other half next week in a part three that will wrap up this blog’s participation in Hooked Together.

Bridge and Beyond collects knit and crochet donations for homeless people in Ohio including people on the streets as well as women and children in domestic violence shelters. This site is run by Sandy who is @sandycrochet on Twitter and Sandy Mader Holladay on Facebook. Her personal crafty blog is Sandy’s Space.

What did I find? Great mix of stuff here in this section of the blogroll exploration. I find a few new crochet and crafty blogs to follow. I was intrigued that the links that were previously on Hooked Together were all from the first couple of weeks of the project. Fun stuff.
