The next blog up on my list is Carrie Wolf. I’m excited to check out her blogroll because she not only blogs about crochet but also shares her other crafty interests including needlepoint, glass blowing and pottery. So while I don’t yet know if I’m going to find any new crochet blogs to follow here, I do bet that I’ll get a chance to see some great new creative blogs that I’m not familiar with as I start this post.
First let me tell you a little bit about Carrie Wolf because her site has a few really good crochet things worth checking out. For example, she’s got a couple of crochet patterns. She also has a tutorial on inserting lining and a zipper into a crochet purse. Now, she hasn’t actually updated this blog since October but I’ve gone ahead and decided to explore her blogroll anyway because she’s been consistently blogging since 2006 so I know she’s going to be back.
Let’s see what she reads:
Tier One Blogs
These blogs are on the blogroll but they’re also already in the big list of blogs I already read. Awesome.
- Tapestry Crochet. You may recall that this blog by Carol Ventura received my December blogger award for best niche crochet blog.
Blogs That Have Already Been Hooked Together
These blogs are on the blogroll but they’ve already been linked to because they were on the blogroll in a previous Hooked Together post. Also awesome.

For the purposes of Hooked Together, a blog is considered out of date if it hasn’t had a post in the past couple of months.
- DeanWolf.net. Glassblowing blog. The website is up to date however. It’s at Wolf Art Glass. Very pretty work!
- Glass Fancy. Infrequently updated blog from a fused glass jewelry maker.

What did I find? I actually found a couple new multi-craft blogs that I’ll be subscribing to including the fiber arts one. I also got to see lots of other pretty crafty things. And I’m happy to see that there’s a link between this blogroll and three others that have been Hooked Together previously. We’re all so connected!
