While the blog was busy moving from one host to the other this week, I was busy continuing to read all of the other great crochet blogs out there. Here’s my roundup of all of the best posts in all areas of crochet blogging from the past week. (And by the way, come back tomorrow for four new “crochet blogger award” announcements, which will catch us up on the days missed while the blog was in transition.)

Something Special

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it before on this blog but if you haven’t ever checked out the Crochet University page on Maggie’s Crochet site then you should. She’s organized lots of great links to a variety of different things including charities that accept crochet, crochet masters past and present and crochet stitch tutorials.

And Some Special Thanks

First of all, I meant to include a thanks last week to Gwen Blakley Kinsler for the nice words she said about me at the start of the interview she did on her site. She said, “Sometimes a stand-out person comes along in an online version of a cocktail party and the sharing of our interests/passions and knowledge creates a sort of click that resonates with the heart. Kathryn Vercillo is that “click” for me.” Super sweet!

Happy reading!
