Hottest Crochet Posts from This Week (Link Love)

We’re in a new month and crochet blog posts continue to surprise and amaze me. Here were my favorites from around the hooky web this week.

Smart Words About Crochet

Terrific Crochet Interviews

  • Interview with @Vashtirama. Marie from Underground Crafter manages to offer another great insightful interview with a terrific crochet designer.
  • Interview with @KristinOmdahl. Kristin’s new seamless crochet book is out and this is a nice review of it by @crochetbyfaye along with an interview of Kristin. Actually @jimmybeanswool also did a nice interview with Kristin about the book and reading both of them together will give you lots of good info!
  • Freeform Crochet Interview with Renate Kirkpatrick. I love learning more about freeform crochet and this @crochetspot interview hits the spot. It also includes some great basic crochet tips.

  1. oh my and it is still early… Help… I want to join crochet liberations site but there is one of those page error thingys. where are they? Love pintrest site thanxs Little orphan skein is a link i joined off of someone you linked me with… now I can’t remember who… my “Chain” of sites and bookmarks is a Library unto itself….. I deleted her note by accident last nite darn it…

    • @65mary65 The website for CLF is It’s a terrific site and Laurie, who runs it, is a real leader in crochet. I’m not sure why you had an error but it’s possible that it’s related to the fact that she’s been in the process of switching web hosts. I don’t know anything about her process for that but I know that sometimes when I do behind the scenes stuff for this blog the site goes down for a little while.
