Hooked Together is my huge crochet blog project, which I’ve explained in detail here. 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.

This week is a really special week for this project because next up on the list is the blog for Bridge and Beyond. This organization 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. In the blog’s sidebar, they link to the blogs of those who donated so everyone I’m checking out in this edition of Hooked Together is someone who uses their handcrafting to give to others. Wonderful! This is also a blogspot blog so it has a “blogs I follow” page and I’m going to be checking that out for Hooked Together as a part two post next week.

Bridge and Beyond is run by Sandy who is @sandycrochet on Twitter and Sandy Mader Holladay on Facebook. Her personal crafty blog is Sandy’s Space.

Tier One Blogs

These blogs are on the blogroll but they’re also already in the big list of blogs I already read. Awesome.

  • Butternut Street. For some reason I don’t mention this blog a lot but I enjoy the posts by the crocheter and quilter who writes it.
  • The Crooked Yarn. This is the new name of the great blog Every Day Crochet.
  • Crochet Cabana. Now this was a fun find because I read Crochet Cabana’s charity crochet blogging posts all of the time but didn’t know that she had this other blog: Crochet Cabana’s Crafty Corral.

New-to-Me Crochet Blogs

Multi-Craftual Blogs Including Crochet

  • Dandelions and Clover. This multicraftual crocheter recently started blogging again after an absence so it’ll be fun to see what she does next.
  • Spinner Mom. She spins, she knits, she crochets and she blogs.

Non-Crochet Blogs

Out of Date Blogs

For the purposes of Hooked Together, a blog is considered out of date if it hasn’t had a post in the past couple of months.

  • Amy TinCan Random Craziness. Last post July.
  • Easy Crochet Blog. Last post June.
  • Lil Knit of This n That. Last post 2010.
  • Peggy and Jessi Crafting. Last post July.
  • SachaKay. Last post May.
  • Scarlet’s Yarn Barn. Last post March.
  • Cake and Angels. Last post 2009.

What did I find? First, there are lots of cool people donating stuff to Bridge and Beyond, which I think is awesome. Give them some kudos. Other than that, I found some great new crochet blogs to add to my reader and enjoyed seeing what everyone’s working on!

Note: If you’re following along on my original list of Tier One blogs, you’ll see I jumped over Black Cat Crochet, Blue Moon Fiber Arts and Bobbin’s Nest Studio. It’s because they don’t have blogrolls so they don’t fit this particular project.

Also, Hooked Together has recently been featured on some other blogs: The Steady Hand and Fresh Stitches.
